LUX* Resorts & Hotels

We go on holiday to escape the routine… Stay at a conventional resort and before long you’ll know where everything is. That won’t happen at LUX*. We’re in touch with our impromptu side, and we love surprising you with delightful pop-up treats. An ice cream cart here, a fresh coconut stall over there… You may stumble on a secret bar – there one day, gone the next. Al fresco dining, private picnics, goodies hidden in the gardens… They all reflect our spontaneous side, and a desire to celebrate moments that live long in the memory. Prepare to be surprised with our Reasons To Go LUX* Resorts & Hotels .





Lux* Valet
LUX* Valet
  • Introducing LUX* Valet, the modern traveler’s Jeeves!

    Make yourself at home in your LUX* hotel room! If there’s anything at all you need, a tray of nibbles or a glass of wine, a restaurant booking or a spa experience, a sightseeing trip or a fishing boat, or simply some inspiration on what to do next on your dream tropical break…well, just get a hold of LUX* Valet. The modern traveler’s own personal Jeeves, it lives in your LUX* room on a mini iPad and we’ve put it there to cater to your every whim. It’s as simple as tap, tap, and swipe!

ICI
ICI
  • A holiday without ice cream isn’t a holiday at all so we created our own brand called ‘ici’. An array of exotic, island flavours are served from retro-styled parlours and mobile carts while a fresh waffle cone is baked right in front of your eyes. Crunch. Munch. Perfect after lunch.

CAFÉ LUX*
CAFÉ LUX*
  • We believe that great coffee is a must and not a luxury so at the heart of each resort, you’ll find a Café LUX*. Enjoy our organic Island Blend, freshly roasted on-site, in a truly different café setting. Flat White or FrappeLux – they’re perfect for a seaside sip and surf.

PHONE HOME
PHONE HOME
  • We believe that holidays should be stress and hassle-free, which is why if you explore our resorts you’ll find a telephone box and inside a vintage VOIP phone. Here you can make local and international calls free of charge. We just ask one thing. Please do not call the office!

LUX* ME
LUX* ME
  • LUX* Me is an integrated philosophy of wellbeing, offering a step by step path to an altogether healthier way of life. Naturally, in addition to al fresco classes, our personal trainers specialise in pilates, yoga and meditation classes as well as tailoring programmes to you and your requirements. Now stretch!

SCRUCAP
SCRUCAP
  • We love a good Burgundy or vintage Bordeaux but the Indian Ocean’s a long way from the vineyards of France so we’ve tapped South Africa for its most exciting contemporary wines. Cape blends survive the short journey in mint condition. Introducing ‘Scrucap’ and ‘Popcap’. Not a corked wine in sight.

SCREEN ON THE BEACH
SCREEN ON THE BEACH
  • A large screen, fastened between two palms, flickers into life and you’re transported to another world – of blockbusters, family classics and world cinema. It wouldn’t be the movies without the nibbles, so there’s fresh popcorn on the house, ‘ici’ ice cream and drinks served right to your beanbag. Curtain Up!

MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE
MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE
  • You spot a lonely bottle hidden in a bush beside a sandy path. Inside this mysterious vessel, you find a scroll of paper, which reveals a special treat waiting for one lucky guest. Stay alert because it’s only if you find the bottle that this daily surprise can be yours.

EARTH & DANCE
EARTH & DANCE
  • Imported water? You won’t find any in our resorts. Mauritius, La Réunion and the Maldives are quite literally surrounded by the stuff and boast an abundance of natural sources. When it tastes this good, why import? Introducing ‘Earth’ and ‘Dance’ – waters that are bottled for us locally. Now that’s refreshing!

SECRET BAR
SECRET BAR
  • You’ve found it. A wandering wardrobe, parked unexpectedly in a palm-fringed clearing. An armoire stocked daily with spirits, mixers, ice, shakers and glasses. A secret honesty bar where you can fix your own sundowners. Please help yourself. Be creative but please sign the book. Here, it’s always Pimms o’clock. Cheers.

ISLAND KITCHEN
ISLAND KITCHEN
  • The Indian Ocean boasts an exotic range of strange and enticing street foods but Island Kitchen brings these exciting tastes to your table without the risk of travellers’ tummy. Authentic and attractive dishes, which the locals enjoy on daily basis, are now yours to try during a vibrant, pop-up dining experience!

TREAD LIGHTLY
TREAD LIGHTLY
  • We can't always promise clear skies above the Indian Ocean but, with your help, we can guarantee a clear conscience.

    LUX* cares about the islands that are home to its properties. After all, memorable holidays shouldn't cost the earth and that's why we are doing our best to 'Tread Lightly' by offsetting 100% of the carbon emitted at our resorts.
    It's one of a number of measures we're putting in place to help us leave a lighter footprint.


    The islands of Mauritius, La Réunion and the Maldives are spectacular. Together, we can do our bit to make sure they stay that way.

Mamma Aroma
Mamma Aroma
  • For as long as any of us can remember, amenities have been a staple in every hotel and resort bathroom around the world.

    Imagine hair lovingly nourished by deep conditioners; lazy baths scented with tropical oils; bodies gently burnished with a patina of sea salt scrub and sun-kissed skin glowing with the natural moisturizing properties of the island's products.
    LUX* Resorts & Hotels offers you, for your bath experience, something different: an element of surprise, a gasp of pleasure and a nod to simplicity are behind our selection. And being considerate to the environment, our products and their packaging are as light on the planet as they are on the body.


    We have also worked with renowned aromatherapist Shirley Page to create an exclusive range of essential oils, using island ingredients-essences, flowers and spices that combine to create a magical world of fragrance. Used in our LUX* Me spa, the oils are also present in interior and linen scents.

The Sound of Music
The Sound of Music
  • There's nothing quite like the classics.

    And we're not talking about Julie Andrews here, although she could yodel the goats off a Swiss mountain. No, we refer to Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven and Rachmaninov et al. Exquisite? Yes. In the Indian Ocean? Maybe not. LUX* has cut the sombre classics, lazy jazz, pan pipe medleys and predictable bands. Our resorts have been conceived as multi-sensory places for which our tone-perfect sound architects, Ben Bridgewater and Dan Lywood, have curated a varied and sensitive music collection. Whether you're dining by the sea, enjoying a massage or chilling by the pool, we'll make sure that your aural receptors will be washed in top tunes and not drowned in Baccarat or Bach.

Dejeuner sur la mer
Dejeuner sur la mer
  • We wish to offer you a light-hearted dining experience, one that reflects a progressive, fresh approach to resort cuisine.

    Welcome to the pop-up placemat. Presented in the most unexpected of places, you will be invited to dine al fresco in and around the grounds and even beyond their extent.
    Imagine a path of paper-wrapped candles that lead you into the gardens. At the end of the path, you happen across a casual set-up: six to eight tables romantically lit by candles. Tree-hung lanterns bob gently in the light evening breeze as the palm fronds whisper anticipating your arrival.


    Or you're invited to walk across a pontoon, to an “aperitif” that will be served aboard your own private floating restaurant, moored there for just one night.
    Lightly sauteed squid is followed by the catch of the day that couldn't be served closer to home. By the time dawn breaks, all trace of your presence has gone-all the fun and romance of a spontaneous evening, now a safe memory from your LUX* holiday.

LUX*  RESORT COLLECTION
LUX* RESORT COLLECTION
  • Resort boutiques are often more airport kiosk than island couture. All change!
    The SHOP Collection is a tempting chest of locally-sourced treasures.

    LUX* JOURNAL
    At LUX*, each moment matters and to celebrate this belief, each guest is presented with a journal in which to record precious moments and idle thoughts during their stay. This larger version should keep you going until next year. 

    LUX* ME AROMATHERAPY OILS
    Soothe yourself with this range of organic face and body oils mixed for us by aromatherapist Shirley Page. Essences of flowers, fruits and spices from Mauritius, La Réunion and the Maldives combine to create delicate island blends.

    SLEEP TIGHT
    Say good morning and goodnight to the ultimate mattress. Designed by our very own sleep guru Johan van Vuuren, we think Sleep Tight offers the best night's sleep anywhere on earth. Could this be the best holiday souvenir ever?

    YOGA COLLECTION
    The LUX* yoga collection features a selection of lightweight pants and racerback tops made from super fine Lycra jersey. Designed for fit and comfort, the collection will help you to feel light and look good. Om.

    SCRUCAP AND POPCAP
    If you enjoyed our collection of South African wines, handpicked by Chief Slurper Kent Scheermeyer, why not enjoy them at home too? Take a box set with you or place a larger order and we'll ship it direct.

    MEN'S SHIRTS
    Lightweight and casual, our selection of natural 100% cotton and linen shirts is a must for any discerning man's holiday wardrobe. Featuring the classic white and a range of tropical island colours, these tailored shirts are great for travelling too.

    CAFÉ LUX* 'ISLAND BLEND'
    Made from beans roasted right here on the island, 'Island Blend' is a delicious coffee mixed exclusively for LUX* by Deluxe Coffeeworks, a boutique roaster based in Cape Town. Why not wake up and smell the coffee every day?

    FRESCOBOL BEACH BATS
    These beautiful Frescobol beach bats from the FB Collection have been handcrafted in Brazilian workshops using the finest wood reclaimed from marceneiro workshops. Two rubber balls and a beach case complete each set.

    PINK PIGEON RUM
    An uplifting, single estate rum infused with hand-pollinated bourbon vanilla. Made at the oldest operating distillery on Mauritius, Pink Pigeon takes its name from the rare birds that grace the island's skies

CAKE BOSS
CAKE BOSS
  • There's nothing more inviting and celebratory than a cake gleaming with decadent icing, especially if you've made it with your own two hands!

    For special occasions and everyday children's treats, pop into one of our unique cake decorating bars. Choose from a variety of pre-baked cakes and cupcakes and, with a helping hand from one of our passionate pastry chefs, let your creative spirit run free. With delicious butter and ganache icings, chocolate buttons, hundreds and thousands, sugar flowers, real blooms and lots more, this is perfect for kids (both large and small) who like to create their own yummy treats.

TEDDY TENNIS
TEDDY TENNIS
  • When you take your children on holiday you want them to have an exciting, fun-packed time. Rest assured. From treasure hunts and sand castle competitions to water sports and outdoor games, LUX* PLAY offers a variety of activities to keep the kids entertained while meeting new friends. One of our favourite activities is Teddy Tennis, which encourages children of eight and under to appreciate the importance of exercise and staying fit by teaching them how to play tennis.Music helps the budding champions to grasp the concepts of rhythm and timing, while images of teddy bears in motion show them how to play. Different bears like different things. Molly Bear loves to volley. Boris Bear loves to bounce the ball. Playful and engaging, Teddy Tennis keeps the kids active whilst capturing their young imaginations.

Starry, Starry Night
Starry, Starry Night
  • The Southern Cross, the Milky Way, distant and infinitesimal galaxies.

    Enjoying negligible light pollution, the night skies of the Indian Ocean can be quite simply spellbinding. LUX* is all about light so how appropriate we thought it would be to introduce mobile observatories to enable you to take a closer look at the incandescence of the heavens above. Knowledgeable and amusing guides will inform and inspire you with facts about the constellations and fascinating tales and legends from island folklore. Whether you're in Mauritius, La Réunion or the Maldives, a starry night in the Indian Ocean is truly special. Once seen, never forgotten.
