« Did you know? At LUX* Belle Mare, a new day in heaven starts after spending a comfortable night in a LUX* Sleep-Tight handcrafted bed! » - Ronan, Islandian Expert
LUX * Belle Mare, the most instagrammed hotel on the East Coast of Mauritius, is positioned on a site of exceptional natural beauty, at the edge of an immense and white sandy beach. The LUX * hotels stand out from the crowd thanks to their distinctive character, whereby everything – from coffee to spa treatment – bears the LUX * brand. Its warm and passionate staff, attired in immaculate white uniforms, is dedicated to making your LUX * experience a memorable one in its entirety.
This five-star resort has all the qualities to satisfy every guest’s desires, from the most extravagant to the most elementary: a sparkling turquoise sea, the sumptuous LUX * Me Spa, a range of craft beers, a huge swimming pool, the Veggie Heaven vegetarian menu, cinema evenings under the stars, homemade ice cream, water sports, and a beach restaurant that, at nightfall, is lighted red ... these and many more "Reasons to Go" ensure endless fascination and charm.
Three categories of sumptuous villas are nestled in the lush tropical garden of LUX * Belle Mare: the Ocean View, the Beach Front and the Prestige Villas. Each villa is built around an interior courtyard with private swimming pool and a gazebo under which you may dine at any time of the day. The bright white and dark wood interiors with touches of bright pink and contemporary furnishings – signed by design guru, Kelly Hoppen – contrast with natural thatch, volcanic rock, and wood materials. The enormous bathrooms are enhanced by large picture windows that allow in natural daytime or moonlit lighting. Each villa type offers its own singular feature: the Ocean View’s sunken bathtub is at eye level with the pool; the Beach Front is set on the beach with direct access to the sea; the Prestige has two bedrooms, each opening onto the swimming pool. All villas at LUX * Belle Mare are tended by a private butler, who provides impeccable service. These villas bring you a sweet island lifestyle combined with the renowned know-how of LUX *.
