Lux is a chic and serene boutique resort at the foot of the Le Morne mountain. It is surrounded by tropical foliage and overlooks the turquoise lagoon and sandy beach. It is a scene that embodies the spirit of Mauritius.
Every inch of Lux was designed to be photographed and this includes the luxurious, beautifully designed accommodation, with its neutral palettes, organic textures, king size beds and outdoor spaces.
With access to five swimming pools, two of which have swim-up bars, the whole family is catered for and there is even a kids club. There are water and land sports on offer for the adventurous and a spa that caters for all your desires.
If you like a bit of art and craft, the Junk Art Gallery is the place for you. All art is made from recycled materials – you can make your own sculptures and art work or purchase one made by the resident artist.
Or maybe you wish to be romantic and watch the sunset from the treehouse within the Banyan Tree. At the bottom of the tree, guests are encouraged to share a wish or a memory.
If you are thinking of tying the knot in Mauritius, Lux Le Morne provides a perfect backdrop.
When it comes to dining, you have the choice of three restaurants: The Kitchen for international cuisine, The Beach for Mediterranean cuisine and the speciality Thai. For those light bite moments, there is a café and an ice cream parlour that makes its own ice cream. Plus you can feel refreshed on the beach with a fresh coconuts or fresh fruit flavoured water.
Do what I did when I visited Lux Le Morne and slip off your shoes, wiggle your toes in the white sand and watch the sky change colour at sunset whilst sipping a cocktail - at that moment you truly are in paradise...
