A luxury hotel in Mauritius, shining with the vibrant energy and hospitality of authentic island life.
Tucked away in lush tropical gardens near the quaint, sleepy village of Belle Mare, this luxury hotel in Mauritius graces a glorious stretch of the island’s eastern coast.
London-based design queen, Kelly Hoppen, has breathed new life into the resort with her fresh take on traditional Mauritian hospitality. Dressed in soothing whites and vibrant brights, each of the thatch-roofed suites and villas is blessed with sea views. And what a view it is: an unspoilt sweep of powder-soft sands, crystalline waters in sparkling shades of beryl blue, coconut palms swaying gently in the breeze – this is one of the finest beaches in Mauritius.
At the heart of the resort, the island’s largest swimming pool is an idyllic spot for lounging and mingling, gently buzzing by day and sashaying to Balearic beats by night. Dip a toe in the water, indulge in sweet-scented treatments at the LUX* Me spa, work on your swing at one of three world-class golf courses or sample exotic scoops of home-made ice cream at the ICI parlour. Beyond the sands, a kaleidoscope of sea life awaits in the lagoon – you’ve found one of the most delightful spots on the island.
