Welcome to an oasis of luxury.

At Lux* Belle Mareย there are gazebos draped with white chiffon, frangipanis littered on breakfast tables, an open-air cinema by the beach (swoon!), fresh green coconuts housing delectable coconut water, and rooms of one’s dreams.

THE HOTEL

Lux* Belle Mare is no ordinary hotel. We’ve stayed in a fair few luxury hotels but we have no qualms in admitting this is one of our favourite hotels in the world. Want to know why? Read on

 

THE ROOMS

We were put up in the Honeymoon Suite, a sprawling suite with an extra large bed and a whole bathroom ‘apartment’, furnished with the bathtub of Savi’s dreams (huge, no ridonculously huge), mirrors, ย a large shower cubicle, sinks, and a walk-in closet.

The minimalistic furnishing had a subtle nautical theme running through it with white walls, vintage trunks for side-tables, and straw hats on walls.

THE POOL

Lux* Belle Mare boasts of the largest pool in Mauritius – we told you we had our reasons for falling in love with this property, did we not?

The two-tiered pool is the focal point of the hotel. The size and design ensures it never gets busy or looks crowded – perfect for those who like a bit of peace and quiet.

No prizes for guessing where our chipmunk spent most of her time atย Lux* Belle Mare ๐Ÿ™‚

THE SPA

An enclove of peace and quiet, the Lux* Me Spa is the perfect retreat after a long day of sightseeing. We treated ourselves to rejuvenating body massages and could almost see our fatigue vanishing into thin air. Up, up, and away – their masseurs had magic fingers.

THE FOOD

We called it an oasis, but forgot to add it’s one helluva self-sufficient oasis. Lux* Resorts make their own wine, water, ice-cream (so creamy, it would give most Italian Gelaterias a run for their money), and roast their own coffee. As a result, their food is impeccable.

We highly recommend opting for the all-inclusive package to enjoy the vast variety of food on offer while saving a bunch of money. Unlike some resorts, the ‘All Inclusive’ tag doesn’t cheapen the quality of food. There is no cutting corners at Lux* Belle Mare.

Their elaborate breakfast spread had a large variety of continental, Mauritian, and Chinese dishes on offer. But we were really impressed by the food on offer at their Asian fusion restaurant Asiatica. A variety of tapas style dishes, paired with complimentary house wines, left us wanting more.

THE HIGHLIGHT

Ironically it isn’t the rooms, food, ice-cream, or spa that makeย Lux* Belle Mare special – it is the people. Everyone we met – from the waiters to the masseurs, from the water-sports instructor to their PR manager (Elvis we love you ๐Ÿ™‚ ) greeted us with warm smiles and made us feel welcome. What more could a guest ask of a hotel?
