Mauritius – The festive season is officially here! If you are wondering where to go or what to do, LUX* Resorts & Hotels has prepared a wonderful line-up of festivities from romantic getaways to family-friendly programmes to suit everyone from the east to the west of the island.
Be dazzled by a flash mob welcome when you enter LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas for a Mauritian-themed Gala Dinner at MIXE, offering the best of Indian, Chinese and Western cuisine. Feel like royalty as you party the night away at Beach Rouge with a live band or if retro music tickles your fancy, the main bar offers 1980s pop music and pub quiz entertainment.
If live Christmas carolling reminds you of home, Palm Court Restaurant at LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas will give you just that, complemented with a gastronomy spread from different parts of the world. Make a day of it and start with a pampering Kerastase ritual at LUX* Me Beauty before diving into an evening of celebration.
If your kids have been good this year, wake up to Santa Claus knocking on your door at LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas bearing gifts! And if your children have been asking to meet Father Christmas up close and personal, now is the time to enjoy breakfast together at MIXE, followed by gingerbread decorating activities and an outdoor movie screening. On offer are also pony rides on the beach as well as treasure hunts with exciting prizes to be won.
Bubbles and foam lovers will find their groove at LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas’ Beach Rouge. Dinner is equally vibrant with a buffet spread at Palm Court Restaurant or those looking for sit-down options can enjoy a la carte menus at INTI and Beach Rouge with live music.
New Year’s Eve
Picture a long table on the beach under the coconut palms with the orangey-pink sunset as the backdrop, with thousands of lights and candles. LUX* Le Morne Resort presents their New Year’s Eve White Party, offering just that on their renowned beach front with live cooking stations with a festive touch, Champagne bar as well as a Cigar and Cognac corner. Music by some of the island’s best DJs will start from 5 p.m. until the early hours of the morning. The only condition – guests are required to deck out in all-white finery.
LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas’ New Year’s Eve Buffet Gala at MIXE is a great choice for families with strolling musicians playing evergreen festive tunes. The party continues after dinner at Beach Rouge with internationally-acclaimed DJ Nakadia, who provoked a techno revolution in her home country of Thailand and has played in some of the world’s biggest electronic festivals such as Loveparade in Berlin and Dockyard in Amsterdam, as well as top clubs around the globe.
Check out of 2020 starting with a shimmering gold body scrub and 60-minute massage at LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas. Photography-lovers can then pick up smart phone photography and editing tips from the resident Photofanatics team and document the start of 2021 with your newfound knowledge. Dinner promises to be a lively affair at Palm Court Restaurant before ringing in the new year on the beach with a resplendent fireworks display.
