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 LUX Belle Mare was an incredible place to go on holiday and they made our honeymoon feel so special. Nothing was too much to ask and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. They even helped us rent a car at short notice. The food was INCREDIBLE and there is so much to choose from you, you've never get bored. The breakfast buffet has a vast choice and throughout the day you can choose to eat in the restaurants or the beach bar. We also loved the ice cream station! The rooms were so clean and modern and HUGE! Couldn't fault them! We also loved the gym, the spa (highly recommend a massage) and the coffee bar in the lobby. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough and I hope we get to go back one day! Read less

To put simply, this hotel and chain should be on everyone’s bucket list. We were blown away of the staffs hospitality from the moment we arrived to the lovely little hamper they supplied for our departure. The hotel itself is so picturesque with a phenomenal beach you can peacefully unwind on. The food! My god, was sensational! A little tip, if you’re not big eaters, don’t worry about upgrading to all inclusive, you’ll be blown away by the spread they put out at breakfast which kept us fall until the evening. We would often only get a main at dinner because despite the price being high, they were generous servings. I personally would like to thank staff member Kay for organising my engagement in true style. Thank you Kay, it went down a treat and is greatly appreciated! Read less
