    As the world reopens, travel is getting a little easier. The secret to a seamless trip is extra planning. Be sure to check your country's regulations. Here's the status of our destinations:



    Great news! Mauritius is fully open! We compiled the most frequently asked questions below. We also invite you to consult the official Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority website for the latest updates and more detailed information: https://mauritiusnow.com

    La Reunion

    Social distancing is recommended but is no longer mandatory. Masks are not required indoors and outdoors, including in transportation (even if it is still recommended). To visit Reunion Island, it is compulsory for unvaccinated people to present a Covid-19 test (PCR test less than 72 hours or Antigen test less than 48 hours). Vaccinated travellers do not need to present any test upon departure. Since 14 May, ‘reasonable excuses’ are not required for unvaccinated travellers (however a negative Covid test is still compulsory).


    Over in China, the doors to our resorts and retreats are open to domestic travellers only, as borders remain closed for now. A health QR code is required upon check-in. Local travellers from high and middle-risk areas should check in with their regional's regulations.


    The Maldives' one island=one resort has made it an alluring destination since day 1.

    You are no longer required to present a PCR negative test result upon arrival to the Maldives. This applies to both vaccinated and non-vaccinated travellers. Wearing a face mask is no longer mandatory, except at health facilities.

    You must fill out an online Traveller Health Declaration (https://imuga.immigration.gov.mv/) within 48h of your departure to and from the Maldives.

    If you are coming from another resort, island or boat, you are no longer required to do a PCR test prior to your arrival at LUX* South Ari Atoll.

    As part of the Collective Care Program, all Team Members maintain protective measures, and public facilities are sanitized frequently to keep you, our Team Members, and our communities safe.

    COVID-19 insurance: The Maldives offers a COVID-19 insurance which travellers can purchase prior to their arrival. It covers medical expenses, isolation and transportation costs.

Architecture and Interiors
Slow Life Architects from Barcelona took inspiration from the traditional architecture of the farmhouses as well as Maison de Vignerons (winemakers’ homes), and created an inspired architecture utilising stone masonry and local materials with interiors crafted by the esteemed Lázaro Rosa-Violan, best known for delivering experience-driven spaces at some of the finest establishments across Europe. Cleverly combining colours, textures, and mood of the Mediterranean, these upmarket residences offer bright and expansive spaces.

Tranquil Lifestyle
Marseillan is thought to be one of the oldest French towns founded in the sixth century B.C. by Greek merchants extending their commercial activities along the Mediterranean coast. This charming portside town has a bustling market and thriving restaurants steeped in history. Romans built the harbour to establish Marseillan as a fishing town.

The Languedoc region, where Marseillan is located, is known for its wine production today and is the largest wine producing area in the world. Thus, LUX* La Baraquette is surrounded by some of the country's finest vineyards and overlooks the world famous oyster beds of the Thau Lagoon, home to over 700 Mediterranean species including 18 varieties of shellfish, of which the most important of all is the Pink Diamond oysters, a favourite delicacy in this region. In addition to its leisurely Southern France charm, the region benefits from 300 days of sunshine every year.
