Set on a superb pristine beach on the East coast, the LUX* Belle Mare is the brand’s flagship hotel on the island with an air of chilled understated elegance.
Thatched colonial-style villas with chic room interiors, by British designer Kelly Hoppen no less, feature a light and bright theme and are dressed in soothing whites with splashes of colour. For the ultimate in exclusivity the spacious villas surround a courtyard pool and a private beach.
Foodies will love the authentic fine dining including Amari by Vineet Bhatia, the first Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin star. There’s freshly caught fish at Beach Rouge and the trendy Duck Laundry with its Asian tapas is a delight. If you choose to go for the All-Inclusive it is a good value option.
The enormous pool at the LUX* Belle Mare is one of the largest in Mauritius at 2,000m2. A separate area for children whilst you can enjoy an endless list of water sports, nearby riding stables and tennis courts. Programmes of entertainment and games are arranged for the whole family or couples throughout the week with different themed cultural events and nights.
The LUX* chain has real vision and always surprises you with imaginative special touches such as a trendy pop-up Cinema Paradiso which can be found on the beach complete with popcorn and lounge cushions under the night sky and its own brand of water as well as its signature coffee roasted on the island. There’s also Phone Home using the iconic red phone box for free international calls to all landlines, its own brand ICI ice cream stall plus a secret honesty bar that is there one day and gone the next.
The LUX* Me Spa has been totally refreshed, with a spa suite for couples, traditional Chinese medicine cabins, Thai massage cabins, sauna and steam room.
LUX* Belle Mare is 75 minutes from Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport.

There’s a hint of French Riviera in the airy white-and-red decor. In the lounge area, cocktails and tapas make for lazy days and cool evenings by the Indian Ocean: flop down on cushions on the beach to the upbeat sound of top DJs.

Dinner - 18:30 to 22:30
Amari by Vineet
For a dash of Asian spice, head to Amari by Vineet, the resort’s new Indian restaurant – a clean-lined but opulent space for the Michelin-star chef’s scintillating fare. A leading light in the reinvention of Indian cuisine, Chef Vineet Bhatia won his first Michelin star at Zakia in London in 2001, followed by another in 2006 for his personal venture `Rasoi` in London as well as in 2009 for `Rasoi by Vineet` in Geneva. His masterful technique makes the textures and flavours of India shine, in sumptuous, subtly spiced dishes with contemporary flair.
Dinner - 19:00 to 22:30
Named after Kelly Hoppen, the K-Bar entertains with its dragon-inspired cocktails and headlines with another LUX* first: a microbrewery feature in this `gastro pub`, where an exclusive range of craft beers are available on tap.
All day - 10:30 to midnight

Bespoke ‘pod’ machines and a variety of Café LUX* blends allow guests to enjoy an aromatic cup in their room, and even at home.

Pretty speechless really, had an absolute AMAZING 12 nights here over the Xmas period (thanks to Kate & the team for the recommendation). Stunning setting on the beach, first class service throughout the resort and the All Inclusive package is very good value for money. We hope to be returning soon and I would certainly recommend the beach suites (see my Trip Advisor Review). Thanks Travelbeam ????

The hotel was absolutely superb and we couldn`t fault it in any way at all. The staff were so lovely, our room was just perfect, the food was amazing and it was in such a lovely position right on the beach. I would recommend the all inclusive option – it`s definitely worth the extra!!
