Mauritius, Indian Ocean

Virgin rating

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.

Our stay at the Lux Belle Mare was an amazing experience, me and my wife spent my 30th birthday, and a late honeymoon at the resort. While relatively busy, there were always plenty of food options and restaurants and recliners on the beach. And the impressive chefs and hospitality staff including Kay made sure there were vegetarian and vegan options available to us. From having an amazing dessert waiting for us in our room from the Michelin star restaurant Amari on the first night to making us a special evening vegan dinner menu to making vegan pastries for breakfast, the teams hard work and attention for detail was almost unparalleled. The only slight issue encountered was the very late evening turn down service often meant the rooms weren't always perfwctly clean for our return, but in terms of stay - we wouldn't recommend anywhere else. Amazing. Read less

Me and my Wife (Sophie) stayed at Lux Belle Mare for our honeymoon and we both had the best time. The hotel itself has wonderful facilities and we particularly enjoyed the choice of restaurants where the food is delicious. We stayed in the spacious and luxurious Ocean View Villa which was extra special for us being on our honeymoon. The highlights of staying in the villa were the private pool and garden, the impressive butler and beach attendant service, and also the beach being a very short walk away with exclusive loungers reserved for the villa guests (plenty of other loungers are also available). The staff at Lux Belle Mare are superb and really made sure that we had a perfect stay. We'd like to give an extra special thank you to Rikesh, Girish, Sanju, Pravind, Mahen and Benji who all made our stay extra memorable. We hope to visit again someday! Sam and Sophie Western Read less

We spent 10 incredible days in Mauritius at Lux Belle Mare. Everything was perfect from the beginning until the end. We were received very kindly and were impressed by our junior suite which was very spacious and had a great terrace with direct access to the garden. For botanically interested people there is a great diversity of plants and palm trees you can discover! The beach left us speechless, the white sand and blue sea let it look like paradise. We had the best time having drinks at the beach or just relaxing in the sun. The food at Lux Belle Mare is excellent and the staff is the kindest that we could imagine. A special extra that made our holidays so unforgettable is the Lux Coffee Bar that we instantly fell in love with. We were received by Barista Bilall who let all our coffee dreams come true. We spent various hours just sitting at the coffee bar enjoying very high quality coffee. It’s the perfect place even on rainy days. We were also lucky and got a glimpse into the coffee roasting process which Bilall and Yashveer showed us. If you are a coffee lover then the Lux Belle Mare is the perfect option for you. All in all the hotel and its staff surpassed our expectations and made our trip one of the best of our lives. Special thanks go to Bilall for making our time at Lux unforgettable. Also we would like to thank Milina & Wardah from guest relation they were very helpful. Moreover a huge thank you goes to Amit for service & Hitess thé barman at Beache rouge who fulfilled all our culinary desires. The best housekeeping we could imagine was done by Kunal & Yasvii. Our last but very special thanks go to the Pool Boy Arvin whose intention really was to make us happy. We will definitely come back one day! Read less

The resort has great selection of free and paid for activities which made our honeymoon absolutely exceptional. The staff is very friendly in every restaurant, bar and house keeping. We were blown away especially with our butlers Mahen and Sanju. They went above and beyond to ensure we were looked after. Our Villa was very beautiful and spacious. We loved our private pool and private beach. We strongly recommend the place! Read less
