Our properties in Reunion Island are also ranked in the top 5 in the Best Value and Region categories. LUX* South Ari Atoll in the Maldives is ranked No 9 out 257 properties across the destination, whilst many of the famous branded hotels such as One&Only, Marriott, Four Seasons, Anantara, Accor, Hilton, Outrigger, Park Hyatt and Shangri-La are featured in the bottom 40 of the top 100 ranking.

All the above accomplishments bear testimony to the collective hard work all Team Members are consistently delivering every single day.

Thank you ALL for your passion and dedication.
