LUX* Belle Mare & Villas

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

After a makeover by London designer Kelly Hoppen, this hotel is the epitome of cool, occupying a dream location overlooking a pristine stretch of beach washed by sparkling azure waters. It’s also home to one of the island’s largest swimming pools, take a dip or treat yourself to a fresh, low-fat ice cream packed with island fruits from the 'ici' vendors. You'll also find some quirky LUX* touches, such as their own blend of coffee roasted on site, a pop-up restaurant and the beach cinema. LUX* Belle Mare offers a range of suites & private villas to tempt you, all beautifully designed. Upgrade to a Pool View Junior Suite overlooking the swimming pool or to a Romantic Junior Suite for a quieter location. For a really special occasion, the Honeymoon Suite is nothing short of sublime or if you’re travelling with the children the Family Suites are very spacious. It’s the little touches here that make all the difference, a British red phone box, for example, a novel way to call home! Exciting amenities include an impressive list of water sports with probably something new to try every day of your holiday. As for restaurants, you’ve several to choose from. MIXE specialises in worldwide cuisine, whilst at Amari by Vineet, you can enjoy Indian delights fit for a maharajah.

I’ve never done a Trip Advisor review before, but I’d be doing everyone a disservice if I didn’t take the time to mention just how fantastic every single detail of this hotel is. I’m sure you can see from the traveller photos just how beautiful the beach is and how minimally tasteful the room decor. What they don’t portray is just how good each and every member of the staff are. Everyone goes well beyond the call of duty to make it a holiday of a lifetime and they’ve certainly succeeded. One of many, many highlights must be Beach Rouge. I can honestly say that we nipped down for a quick spot of lunch and ended up with one of the best dinning experience we’ve ever had - with the view, service and quality of food (do yourself a favour and please try the freshly made pizza) In finishing just a thank you for making our 10th wedding anniversary so special.

Stopped by for coffee at Café Lux Belle Mare for a few times. Sham, Selvano and Sudhir working at the café are very kind and knowledgeable about coffee production and the process. Overall great time spent there with my friends; very peaceful atmosphere. Thumbs up! Keep up the great customer service. :) Akshay Keenoo (AK)
