Nestled on a secluded peninsula fringed with swaying coconut palms, a calm lagoon filled with dolphins, and a glorious coastline ideal for long beach strolls, LUX* Le Morne is your Mauritian dream come true. By Sushmita Srivastav
Climb up the Le Morne Brabant mountain, discover the wild at the nearby Black River Gorges National Park, swim with the dolphins in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, canter along the coastline on horseback, or try kite-surfing at the world famous spot of ‘One Eye’—a stay at the luxurious resort of LUX* Le Morne goes beyond luxury island living.
With the massive Le Morne Brabant mountain, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, playing its dramatic backdrop, the tropical resort by LUX* Resorts & Hotels unfurls like a dream on the exclusive peninsula at the southwestern end of Mauritius. Expect nothing less than bespoke luxury and endless adventures at the beachfront resort fringed by the turquoise lagoon.
The Balinese-style chalets here, with solid wooden floors, rattan-lined cathedral ceilings, marble bathrooms, beds with comfy duvets, and private balconies with breathtaking vistas, are a blend of comfortable luxury and simplicity. The two-storey beachfront Prestige Junior Suite with a private whirlpool bath and an outdoor shower, is perfect for honeymoon couples looking for some personal time in tranquillity.
Indulge in a luxury dining experience as you gorge on delicious culinary creations and enjoy some local island entertainment at the resort’s central restaurant, The Kitchen. Or savour the taste of Thailand at The East where Chef Suksan plates up for you everything — from delicious green papaya salad to lobster green curry, and everything in between. While The Bar has island-inspired bar nibbles and interesting tipples on offer, The Beach lets you relish the Mediterranean cuisine with powdery sand under your feet and a turquoise lagoon before you. Then, there’s Island Kitchen—a remake of the vendor carts across the island serving Mauritian food, rums, and barbecued bites under a starry sky. Also, the LUX* Le Morne follows the Zero Food Waste programme where fresh and reusable leftovers are immediately frozen and later, donated to a neighbouring school.
Save some time for a relaxing massage at the LUX* ME Spa. Head to this wellness sanctuary for holistic treatments, fitness workouts, yoga and meditation sessions, beauty solutions, and interesting pop-up experiences like a head massage on a speed boat! Not to mention, the idyllic setting and the bespoke services together make the resort an ideal wedding destination.
