A contemporary design and authentic touches combine at LUX*’s flagship resort.

Take legendary British designer Kelly Hoppen’s light and bright interiors and add in the more traditional Mauritian features such as thatched roofs and palm-dotted gardens, and you have one of the coolest hotels on the island. The vibe here is that of a modern beach home. Alongside this trés chic style, you have the renowned LUX★ service; nothing is too much trouble and there’s incredible attention to detail. Whether you need your glasses or sun glasses cleaned while lounging around one of the island’s largest swimming pools or on the wide stretch of beach, or a refreshing ICI ice cream, there’ll be a member of staff on hand to attend to your every whim. You’ll receive genuine kindness and warmth from every member of staff as well as a few surprise treats throughout your stay. More actively inclined guests can take one of the resort’s distinctive red Martone bicycles and head off on a tour of nearby beaches, villages and countryside, while those with wellness in mind can retreat to the award-winning spa. Here, the LUX*Me concept takes a bespoke approach to health and fitness with personalised treatments, nutrition and fitness.

Whether it’s the main buffet restaurant or the gourmet Indian venue which is overseen by a Michelin-starred chef, the dining options at LUX★ Belle Mare are second to none. At MIXE an extensive buffet is served at breakfast, and there’s an eclectic selection of dishes created at live cooking stations that are available each evening. For beachside dining with a view of the Indian Ocean, there’s Beach Rouge, while for exemplary Chinese cuisine you should head for the wonderfully-named Duck Laundry, where obviously duck figures prominently on the menu. Recipient of three Michelin stars throughout his career in Europe, Mumbai-born chef Vineet Bhatia has turned his attention to the Indian Ocean and the resort’s newest restaurant – Amari by Vineet; each Kuoni guest staying at the resort for a minimum of seven nights can enjoy one complimentary dinner here.

Each of the generously-sized suites is a calm and light-filled sanctuary, with white-washed walls, light wood and colour accents added by the way of soft furnishings. You can download the LUX★ App which will allow you to make restaurant and spa reservations and access hotel services without leaving the comfort of your suite, the beach or your poolside sunbed. Accommodation options range from Junior Suites to the two-bedroom Grand LUX★ Suite, great for families looking for luxury retreat.
