After much research we decided on Lux Le Morne for our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier...we had an absolutely perfect time. The hotel, location and weather were all fantastic - we had 15 mins of rain in the two weeks we were there, otherwise it was blue sky & sunshine! After 16 hours travelling and our luggage being left in Paris we were exhausted and fed up...but we arrived to a cold towel, warm smile and refreshing drink. Even though our lost luggage was nothing to do with the resort they were so apologetic and helpful in trying to chase it up, making several phone calls on our behalf to rectify the situation.
We stayed in room 93 - an ocean front suite. The room was well appointed and very comfortable - lovely big bed, and serviced twice a day. Even during our stay they were upgrading all the rooms and installing iPads, a nice little touch that enabled you to access wifi, reserve a table for dinner or request guest services. It was right next to the Oasis pool & a short stroll across the garden to get to the beach. It was definitely the quieter end of the resort which was appreciated as it was our honeymoon. We had a furnished terrace with comfy double lounger which was lovely to come & relax on & watch the sunsent after a hard day at the beach!
The beach was picture perfect, powder white sand and crystal clear sea. We never had trouble getting a lounger and the food and drinks service was great. We were booked on the all inclusive honeymoon package which included extras such as romantic dinner, couples massage and bottle of champagne in our room on arrival. I would definitely recommend all inclusive, it was great not to have to worry about the cost of things mounting up, especially drinks. The all inclusive wines were really good quality and although it didn't include premium spirits & champagne it did include sparkling wine and cocktails (love the mojitos and long island iced teas)!
We couldn't fault the food and enjoyed every meal - The Beach restaurant was definitely our favourite for both food & service and we also enjoyed our romantic honeymoon meal there. We found enough choice to keep us happy and trying something different every day. I have to say one of my favourite things was the thai chicken salad served on the beach. The Kitchen restaurant offered a different themed buffet every night and although we found some nights better than others (particularly enjoyed Mauritian night), we never had a bad meal. We didn't have a problem booking into any of the restaurants we wanted & either did it the day before or in the morning, although the hotel certainly wasn't at capacity so that may have made it easier.
The bar had a friendly atmosphere with a good selection of drinks & live entertainment - we were greeted by the lovely Joanne almost every night. I was lucky enough to enjoy two massages in the spa - you lie down to face beautiful views of Le Morne mountain. As my husband doesn't like massages they split our couples massage into two 45 min sessions for me which was greatly appreciated! The massage was as good as, if not better, than anything I've had at home. There's plenty to do & the all inclusive package includes loads of water activities, you really can do as much or as little as you want. We enjoyed a trip out on a glass bottom boat but the main purpose of our stay was pure rest & relaxation.
The majority of staff we came across were fantastic, friendly & hard working....Preetam, Arjoon, Veer, Aisha, Joanne & Annunto...to name but a few. And good luck to Ken who served us in Nipa, he was just starting out and was so friendly! They really did go the extra mile to make our stay memorable...including setting up a lovely table for me on my birthday at breakfast & bringing me a cake.
We loved our stay and couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon. We hope that we'll be able to go back one day and that this review will help you to decide on Lux Le Morne for yourself!
