The hotel

Completely renovated in 2017, this innovative resort has been designed by Kelly Hoppen and delivers an eclectic mix of effortless sophistication and relaxed informality, as well as signature LUX* touches. In a peaceful location, rooms overlook the triple-bay beaches and calm lagoon. There are beautiful gardens to wander in; stopping awhile to lounge on beanbags and hammocks dotted beneath coconut, banyan and filao trees. There are land and water sports galore, plus a world-class golf course nearby and bikes for exploring tropical hillsides or the local markets and village of Cap Malheureux. The LUX* Me Spa is a true haven, offering a range of indulgent treatments as well as yoga and dynamic exercise classes. Dining-wise, you’ll be spoilt for choice, with delicious island-inspired and international dishes. Chat to the chef and watch your meal being created at The Palm Court, savour the cultures of Peru at INTI and visit Under the Banyan for mouthwatering burgers, wood-smoked meats and inventive cocktails at the French Kiss Bar.

After an unfortunate check-in that resulted in not having the first night in the type of room we had booked, the rest of our stay was excellent in a glorious room (3206). The staff were very friendly and always helpful. One manager stood out from the others - Hannah. Swimming in the sea was lovely without any rocks to content with. A variety of restaurants to chose from. The Palm Court, being the main restaurant, offered a wide selection of food. Alongside the Palm Court was the main bar. The only negative in my opinion was the music. At breakfast there was very pleasant soft piano background music, but in the evenings there was mostly live music played on a stage between the bar and the main restaurant and this was totally too loud making any conversation in the bar or over the dinning table impossible. Sadly this was also the only negative about room 3206. It is close to and overlooking the bar area and the music at night (until 22h30-23h00) was very disturbing. Read less
