Powder-soft sands, warm azure waters, gently swaying palms… the beach at LUX* Belle Mare can be hard to leave. Luckily you rarely need to – thanks to the Sandy Toes Bar, everything you need is just steps from your sun lounger. This beach-based entertainment HQ is your on-call concierge for cocktails, beach activity bookings, weather forecasts (sunny), and instant info on everything happening that day – from what’s on the menu at the beach barbecue to which film is screening under the stars tonight.

And, if you’re too relaxed to make the stroll across the sand, just push your ‘Buzz Me’ button and a team member will appear to fulfil your whim. Thirsty? Nothing goes with Mauritian sunshine quite like a glass of Frozé (a frozen
Scrucap rosé , with very delicate pink onion skin color , typical of rose in the southern regions of France ) or a freshly muddled frozen mojito. So lie back on that lounger and leave the rest to LUX*.
