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.

The staff ask too many questions all the time. Room service is horrible they keep on knocking on the door consistently even after they clean, they don’t even change the sheets. Read less

First of all - our target was to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary with our 2 Kids. Upon our arrival, Hema made an very kind welcome and gave us several infos we needed. And she said, we are your Family for 14 Days - we do anything to make you happy. As we were tired from a very long journey twds MRU we were not that pleased, that our Room was not available (we checked in at 11), but this was never a part of our contract. Nevertheless Hema managed it, that we got our Seeviewroom within 20min - top! After refreshment we went to the Mainrestaurant MIXE (breakfast and dinner bufett) you will be braught to your seat by the wonderful staff - we had the very best experience with William, Prevish, Dolores and in the Morning DAVE! A Drink in K Bar - be sure you will get super drinks and recommendations by Sanyif, Kushal and Oliver. If you make a choice to dine at the surf and turf - Rikesh is the perfect man for it. High Quality and excellent seating - thanks a lot. Rolls Royce lunch or a just a snack? Dave - just thank you for your heartful service - at RR or at Breakfast with your excellent smoothies. Dave - simply primus inter pares of the extraordinary staff. Beach Roughe - well so fine. Went there 4 times for dinner and several times for a drink on the beach. The food was excellent - everything was available, top quality and fine. and the service from ashna, Ashwind and Kris outstanding! We will miss it. A top Bar - even when you want to have. a seat at the beach and enjoy a beer in the smoothie. Nice Stars during nighttime to be seen from the lounge! At the beach you can order your drinks directly to the bed - thank you pravish! Very nice and attendable service. Amari - wow - indian food - we loved it. Ravi and Raveena made an memorable stay there. And the kids? Well supervised at the kids club - Thank you Nitasha! And Sports? of course we did. tennis. Many thanks to Lewis Curtis!!! Great man. Check out was at time - because other guests were already waiting - but we could use all facilities and got a showerroom in the evening before pick up. All in all - it was very hard to leave - as Hema said, this was family for this time! All Staff from the Service Desk and the Management said Good Bye - we say: Auf wiedersehen!! We will come back!!! (I am very sorry, I ve forgot somebody for sure - but you were great - best staff I ve ever seen!) Shortly after checking in - Mrs Key (responsible for any kind of celebration) sent us an incredible Cake with Champagne - absolutely top. As well our Room was decorated very very nice. Read less

Very nice and big room with balcony facing the beautiful garden and fish pond, located only few meters away from private beach. We had no meal plan, just accomodation, restaurants & food in the resort we enjoyed a lot for lunch & dinner, still fairly priced compared to the general high price level for good quality food outside of the resort (similar to good restaurants in Europe & overseas) Several water sports included. Very motivated and courteous beach staff always helpful and looking after you to find empty sunbeds, towel service. Special thanks to: Vishal & Pravish (Beach service) Very special thanks to Hema (Guest relations) always helpful and courteous for any issues related to resort facilities & room services. Read less

We booked our honeymoon vacation with LUX Belle Mare and we are so glad that we did. We stayed at the Crystal Moon villa and it was simply amazing. From the heated private pool to the comfort of the bed, it was everything we've hoped for. With direct access to the beach from the villa and the private lounging area, it felt exclusive. We were also served daily canapés and sparkling wine, which further enchanced our stay. The hotel itself feels like an island paradise. It has its own line of café named Café Lux, which serves excellent coffee. Its restaurants are top-notch, with our favourite being the Duck Laundry, it's simply the place to go for some authentic high-end Chinese food. The staff was very attentive as well and were well trained and attended to our every request. The beach, the sea and the activities were great as well. Overall, we've had an amazing experience thanks to the staff and the hotel itself. We will surely be back for more! Read less
