LUX* Resorts & Hotels is proud to commemorate 10 years of helping people celebrate life since launching the much-loved brand in December 2011. Renowned for its simple, fresh and culturally immersive experiences with creative pop-up surprises that transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, the group continue to redefine the concept of what luxury means today. To mark this milestone, LUX* Resorts & Hotels will also celebrate the grand opening of LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences on 3rd December 2021.
In keeping with LUX* Resorts & Hotels’ vision of Making Each Moment Matter and Caring About What Matters, the brand will auction off 10 prizes for a 10-night stay in some of the world’s most exotic destinations on their corporate Instagram page from 18 to 28 October 2021. Each auction will run for 24 hours with the highest bidder announced every hour. 100 per cent of proceeds will be donated to non-profit organisations that the hotels have chosen to partner with.
“Our hotels play a significant role within the communities in which we are located. With the combination of the opening of Mauritius to vaccinated guests and the tenth anniversary of our LUX* brand, we felt the need to include our cherished communities where we operate. Our talented team members who form an integral part of these communities are the bedrock of our success.” said Paul Jones, chief executive officer of The Lux Collective.
