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.

So much to say but can't find the right words to describe it. I was there for a stay with my wife and some friends. I really felt like home away from home. The people, food, scenery, the pool and ambiance were all amazing. Sadly we were there for one night only but I lived a lifetime experience there. I'll start with Mrs. Sheila many thanks for providing us the best rooms on our reservation, the room were allocated the way we asked for it and surprises in the room (Valentine day special), and Suenna at the front office for welcoming us. I went to many Indian restaurants but my passage to Amari by Vineet restaurant was just another level, it was like a fusion of Indian and other Asian cultures food in all plates served for that dinner, big thanks to Chef Subi (& his team at the back), Chef Jean-Noel, Roopesh, and Amar the sommelier for his best wine proposals. Thanks to the duo Billal, Yashveer & Salim from Café Lux, who recommended some amazing milkshakes to me and my love. Without forgetting Reshma Hoomit and Leena who contributed in making my stay a celebration of a lifetime. Even during this harsh time, quality and smile were present everywhere. The rooms were clean and so perfect, the beach, the pool, the food truck and ICI, is really what you would expect there and will help you celebrate life. You guys really deserve all the prizes you've won to date and am sure it will be the case for all the years to come. Again thanks to the whole team (Forgot some name at the time am writing this review) for this amazing experience, keep up the good work. See you all very soon. Read less

We went to LUX* Belle Mare resort for the first time and I must say that it has been one of the best resorts we've been to. From its excellent services to its unmatchable hospitality, LUX* Belle Mare was very welcoming, relaxing, entertaining and agreeable. We got a comfortable room with an magnificent view overlooking the huge pool and the beach from the balcony. The food was also of excellent quality. Our experience with the staff has been incredible - very kind, understanding and very nice people. Special thanks to Mr Ravin who was very welcoming. Jennifer made sure we ended our stay smoothly and even offered us their famous quality coffees from cafe LUX* which was prepared by Yashveer. HUGE thanks to the whole staff of LUX* Belle Mare. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to relax and have an amazing time in a Mauritian resort. Read less
