Male’, Maldives, 24th May 2022 – LUX* South Ari Atoll has been recognised by the LUXlife Global Wedding Awards as the Most Sustainable Wedding Resort thanks to its innovative and restorative approach to celebrations. The resort has a policy of only one wedding per day on the island to ensure it gives its full attention, dedication and commitment to making celebration day extra special for each couple who books their wedding at the resort.
Launched in 2016 and now returning for the sixth consecutive year, LUXlife 2022 Global Wedding Awards aims to join the finest businesses across the wedding industry, from wedding planners and stunning venues to high-end caterers and bespoke stationers.
Regarded as South Asia’s Most Sustainable Wedding Resort, LUX* South Ari Atoll brings together wanderlusters from all over the world for moments and experiences that will last a lifetime, helping people celebrate life. With a stunning tropical backdrop, the island is an ideal place for a wedding, vows renewal or a honeymoon trip, and this luxurious island knows how to craft a day one will never forget. From flower petal showers to bodu beru drummers and sand bank candelight dinners, the possibilities of personalization are lavish and endless.
LUX* South Ari Atoll makes sure couples can celebrate their special day worry-free of the impact on the beautiful Maldivian nature. Ensuring the co-existence of low-impact destination weddings and luxury, the resort’s wedding catalogue features three fresh themes — Wanderlust, Boho and Tropical Paradise, while highlighting chic sustainable hallmarks as part of its fabric. While all offered wedding themes unique in their own ways, they all have one common aspect – care for the planet. The resort is very proud of promoting its Zero Waste Weddings, as part of its latest sustainability proposal.
The resort prides itself on meeting guests’ wedding expectations at no additional cost to nature, and giving back to community at the same time. Each wedding package funds the education of an underprivileged child and the resort can organise a visit to the children’s shelter during the guests’ stay upon request. Furthermore, couples can also choose to support the ocean and help to restore local marine ecosystem by adopting a coral frame. They can keep track of their growing baby corals through regular updates from the resort’s resident Marine Biologist.
