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.

It was our first stay at Lux Belle Mare and we were amazingly surprised by the top notch service and delightful buffet, though we didn't expect it to be otherwise. But what impressed us the most was the friendly, cheerful and helpful staffs. We have been bowled over by the hospitality of Ms. Wardah, Mr. Belal and Mr. Kaleem. They were like cherries on the cake, more so because they practically made us feel like part of the family. We don't usually visit a hotel twice as we like discovering other hotels but we are definitely thinking about repeating the Lux experience. Cheers to everyone, including Mr. Ashish & Mr Follet.
