    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.

Holidays to Mauritius – Hotels, Flights, and Packages

Mauritius …the jewel of the Indian Ocean and paradise found. Heaven was modelled on Mauritius - at least, according to the writer Mark Twain - and the incredible flora and fauna of the island will have you believing this from the second you step off the plane. Ringed by one of the largest unbroken barrier reefs in the world, Mauritius dazzles the senses with 330 kilometres of immaculate white beaches, coral filled lagoons, majestic mountains, laid-back village life and the warmest of welcomes.

Mauritius Holidays

Mauritius Holidays at LUX* Belle Mare

We know it’s a big world out there, so why Mauritius? Perhaps the most compelling reason to visit is choice - from lazy toes-in-the-sand days perfecting the art of doing nothing, to a myriad of active pursuits and some of the best water-sports and diving in the world - it’s an island that truly promises something for everyone.

Climate, cuisine and breathtaking beauty aside, perhaps the island’s greatest asset are its people. Smiles and welcomes are warm, and there’s a genuine sense of hospitality and pride from everyone you meet from the bustling capital of Port Louis, to the smallest villages set amongst the endless fields of sugar cane. You may be thousands of miles away, but this is place that immediately feels like home.

Mauritius Holidays at LUX* Grand Gaube

Traditionally popular with honeymooners, it offers an impossibly romantic backdrop for your celebrations whether you’re tying the knot right here on the beach - or jetting off after your ceremony at home. Couples looking for quality time together will find a myriad of opportunities to reconnect and recharge with a wide range of active pursuits or by simply indulging in the warm hospitality of the island and its people. Families are also extremely well catered for with safe beaches lapped by the gently shallowing warm waters of the lagoon, an extensive range of activities and excursions and boundless possibilities for fun and inspiring young minds. Mauritius has a long and proud traditional of welcoming people from all over the world, and once experienced it’s almost impossible not to return, making it the perfect place for friends and family to gather and celebrate life together.

Mauritius Holidays at LUX* Le Morne

Our award-winning resorts are all to be found in show-stopping locations - from the fresh and forward-looking LUX* Belle Mare featuring an incredible selection of restaurants and bars, to the blissfully in-tune with nature LUX* Le Morne on the wilder UNESCO-protected south-west side of the island set right by the Black River Gorges National Park. Last, but by no means least, is the seductive retro-chic tropical retreat of LUX* Grand Gaube, completely reimagined by designer Kelly Hoppen, it’s edged a private bay and is blessed by two beaches and expansive gardens.

Choose one, or combine your stay and create a holiday of contrasts tailor-made for just for you.
