LUX* Le Morne

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

With a stunning sunset location, flanked by UNESCO World Heritage Site Le Morne Peak, this LUX* resort also overlooks an endless stretch of golden beach. Sheltered from trade winds and on the quiet side of the island, it’s an ideal place to catch up on some R&R. Landscaped gardens surround you, dotted with five swimming pools — select your favourite and pull up a lounger. Romantic in feel, the hotel is also ideal for families, with a superb kids' club offering activities such as treasure hunts, art classes and tennis lessons. Water sports abound, try your hand at snorkelling, water-skiing or kite-surfing perhaps. If you prefer dry land, no worries — team up with friends for a game of volleyball or hire a bike to explore the lush interior. Come sundown, the pace picks up slightly. Head to The Bar for cocktails and live music, or while away the hours in East, feasting on delicious Thai cuisine. Set right beside the ocean, The Beach is also highly recommended, serving up Italian fare in a relaxed setting.

Great 6 day holiday at LUX Le Morne. This wonderful resort miles away from the bustle of any towns is a perfect place to either relax and recharge you batteries or try out the water sports you have always wanted to have a go at. Safe and luxurious this place has it all, especially if you enjoy snorkelling you can do straight from the beach and see the most wonderful sea-life amongst the coral. All the staff are really great, happy and always willing to go the extra to make your vacation memorable. I was lucky enough to meet one of the guys that work at the resort .... Vik, he goes out snorkelling for sea urchins and then presents them to eat on the beach. I joined him a couple of times going out snorkelling and learnt much about what is under the water not straight from the beach, and hopefully helped a bit collecting the sea urchins - a memorable experience .... thank you Vik. All staff and food at the 3 restaurants absolutely wonderful, we really had a great time. .... thanks to the wonderful team at LUX Le Morne. Read less

It is hard to imagine that a better place exists in Mauritius. Extremely comfortable, family friendly and beautiful. Kitesurfing a short (free) mountainbike ride away in the lagoon.

Very nice staff, very good food, amazing beach. Hard to come up with negatives. Maybe too many kids? But then, it was Xmas and we came with a family ourselves, so it suited us fine. Ah, and no family suite, so we had to get two superior doubles instead. Read less

Arriving at LUX* Le Morne was a very welcoming experience. The resort is breathtaking and situated on a beautiful west facing beach which gives way to magnificent views in all directions. This picturesque resort does not disappoint and the atmosphere is very chill and relaxed, which is exactly what we look for on vacation. The attentiveness of the kind reception staff was always a pleasure. Sorry for not mentioning names, but everyone was wonderful! Upon arriving in our Prestige Suite, it was immediately apparent that the room was more beautiful than the website photos! The indoor/outdoor shower, the quality of furnishings and upkeep of this place is quite impressive. Settling in and venturing out to discover the resort directly from our private beachfront patio was exceptional. Having two of our adult children (19 & 24) traveling with us, it was a much needed family reunion and their Superior room was located very close to us. Our side of the resort was quiet and very much appreciated. The beach is very beautiful and we enjoyed many water sports during our stay. Kudos to the staff at the Sports Center, your kindness meant a lot to us. On a half board option, we had the option to taste the amazing menus of EAST (happily with supplement) and The Beach restaurants, along with The Kitchen leaving us with an overall feeling of great satisfaction amidst such such beautiful decors. The beach Fire Show and managers cocktail evening were a great hit amongst all the guests! This would not be a fair review if I did not point out a few other details. As a fairly new vegetarian, it was my responsibility to indicate this when we were asked upon arrival if we had an nutritional needs. I feel I can always find something on offer that will suit my appetite, so I did not make special requests. Breakfast every morning for me consists of fruit and there were not many varieties at all like at Grand Gaube where we had transferred from and having the delicious choices every morning of Mangos, Dragonfruit amongst many others. The staff however were as accommodation as possible always searching for some avocados and oranges for me. Thank you for your extra efforts! No problem for other meals which offered great choices. The Superior room looks very lovely on the website and this was our choice for our two adult aged children. However, as it was a room hidden under a staircase on the ground level, it was a little darker than what we hoped for and full of moisture. The entire floor was very wet, including the clothes, and the moisture level was extreme even with the a/c. Luckily though, a helpful person from reception finally came to our rescue and brought us a large dehumidifier, which thankfully dried up the room and everything was fine. We also encountered a WiFi issue in that room. We do very much appreciate all efforts of the staff. Thank you kindly to the best Assistant Manager for your friendliness, conversations and recommendations of the mountain bike excursion, plus hiking Le Morne which we absolutely loved! This being our 5th LUX* Resort vacation, we continue to be fans and see you next year! Read less
