          My Fiance and I are staying in the LUX at the end of August / September for our honeymoon, and had a few questions. The first question, is about prices for everything. We haven't booked any packages, and were just wondering what a typical drink at the bar costs/ranges? What a typical Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner would cost at the restaurants as well? That way we can better decide if we'd like to go with an INCLUSIVE option. Also, we noticed that the Maldives is now on the CDC's Zika Control List for mosquitoes bites. Since we are planning on having children fairly soon, this is a concern for us. Is there any information regarding the Zika virus at this particular resort? Does anyone know if mosquitoes are actually a problem here? We are very curious to know...

          I don't think you need to worry about mosquitoes or bugs at Lux...! I'd recommend you take a meal plan if available... An average meal for two would be a minimum $100+taxes.

          Hi we are planning on staying at the resort in early August 2017 and I was just wondering what the weather would be likely to be then by past experiences? Are there a lot of mosquitoes at the resort? My husband is very allergic to the bites. Is there daily spaying of the vegetation to prevent too many mosquitoes? Thanks

          Hi! For those who stayed in a Beach Villa (not Beach Pavillion): Do the villas have a coral reef in front of them? Are the beach villas located on the side of the island with more corals? Also, is there any privacy? In the photos, the beach villas seem very close together. Thank you!
