DON’T THINK TWICE about this hotel if you are looking for the best place to stay in Mauritius!!
We have travelled to many beautiful countries and stayed at luxurious 4* and 5* properties around the world, however the LUX Belle Mare topped them all!
We always say that as soon as we get back we will write a review on TripAdvisor, however this is the first time we were compelled to actually do so, albeit has taken nearly 5 months.
We stayed at the LUX in May for our honeymoon and from the moment we were picked up at the airport to arriving at the hotel we felt like royalty.
When we arrived we were looked after by Jessica in Guest Relations and given a drink and cold flannels, just what was needed after a long trip. We were then taken to one of the beautiful newly refurbished suites where we stayed for our first week and were then upgraded to a honeymoon suite for the second week – it was to die for – both were spotlessly cleaned every day.
The grounds of the hotel are lush and well manicured. This also goes for the pool and the beach which is cleaned for sea weed which gets washed up throughout the day.
All the restaurants are like ‘fine dining’ and fabulous, our favourite was the Asian restaurant, The East with the manager Roopesh, a wonderful host. However both The Senses and The Beach had fantastic food too.
That said the self-service buffet is top class with plenty of choice, prepared and cooked fresh to your preference for both the evening and breakfast. Ravin who is the overall Restaurant Manager is amazing and never seems to stop as he appears to be everywhere ensuring that you have everything you require.
The bar is a wonderful place to sit in in the evenings and Sanjiv will look after you and Vikram will keep you entertained. Vikram can make you any cocktail you desire!
The biggest accolade we can give is to the Management and staff as they go above and beyond to ensure you are comfortable.
The most noticeable difference between the LUX and other hotels we have stayed, is that the staff genuinely care and can’t do enough for you, unlike other places where they just do their job.
As people not big on organised trips, we would just like to mention, the speedboat day trip we went on. We booked through a lady on the beach called Belinda who promised us a day to remember – she was right!!
We had a small group of 6 people and the speedboat had plenty of room with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks on tap all day. The day was ‘out-of-this-world’, from snorkelling at the Marine Park to the amazing lunch, the fantastic beaches, feeding monkeys at the waterfall, coral reef and the lighthouse and to finish off a pod of about 20 dolphins that swam around the boat made this a day one to truly remember!
We have always said, as we have so many places to tick off on our list, that we won’t go back to the same place twice, however this place was what we dreamed our honeymoon destination would be like, with the caster sugar white sandy beach and the turquoise clear blue sea, so we are going to break with tradition and go back hopefully next year to celebrate our first anniversary, if not before and some of our friends and family may join us too!!
Finally, we must give credit and thanks to Ashish Modak, the General Manager, as he runs this property so well and the communication amongst his team is second to none!!
