LUX* Le Morne Resort ***** is an elegant 5-star beach hotel, located on the south-western tip of Mauritius, on the edge of the Indian Ocean. This popular part of the island is protected from the trade winds by the Morne Brabant, a pretty mountain shaped like gingerbread, reaching 555 metres above sea level, and is a Unesco World Heritage Site.
The hotel is 1 hour 15 minutes from Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport and 50 minutes from Port Louis, the capital of the island.
The place is heavenly, with its crystalline water at a temperature of around 30°C, where it is not uncommon to meet wild dolphins. The white sand beaches stretch for tens of kilometres and offer splendid sunsets, which you will remember long after your stay.
The hotel has a Mauritian architectural style, with colonial cabanas and a lush tropical garden. It consists of:
The manager of a kids club is a very important person within a hotel. She is the first point of contact for parents and their children. That’s why Little Guest honors those personalities with whom your little ones will have a wonderful time.
An endearing and passionate woman, Anabelle Hugues Gregoire is the soul of the kids club of the hotel LUX * Le Morne. She opens the doors of her little kingdom and gives us her secrets about making your children’s stay magical!
I have been working here for 18 years now. I have always been dedicated to working alongside young children. I passed my pediatric nurse and animator diploma when I became a mother. My children are now in their twenties, but I have never stopped wanting to take care of the little ones. This job is a passion! I started my career at LUX * Le Morne as a babysitter, before being promoted to hostess and then manager of the kids club. It is a wonderful job that requires a lot of patience, kindness and above all, to always have a smile! I am always looking for new activities that will appeal to children. A good way to do this is to listen to them and talk to them. Trends change, games evolve and kids always have great ideas for fun.
The LUX * group has an excellent reputation. The supervision and the activities of the kids club are some of the major assets of this hotel. Here, we honour our commitment to celebrate the life and pleasures of little ones. Our main qualities are creativity, flexibility, openness, versatility and above all, continuous innovation. For example, a few months ago, we planned « parent-child » activities for a family who wanted to enjoy the kids club together. We worked very hard to meet this challenge and our efforts were rewarded. The children offered us beautiful drawings a few hours before their departure and their parents came to thank us and give us a big hug. It was very moving… It’s always gratifying when your work is appreciated and recognized by all members of a family.
The kids club welcomes children from 3 to 11 years old. Children under 3 years old are also welcome, accompanied by their parents or nannies. These nannies are attached to the babysitting service of the hotel. Today, I’m in charge of training them and what better place for that than the kids-club? This is all about the complicity that can arise between a child and his nanny when she plays with him/her all day and watches him/her sleeping. Our team is multilingual. At the kids club, we speak English, French, Italian, and also German. What’s great with the little ones is that language is never a barrier. Access to the kids-club is totally free and a snack is always included. Only the lunch is charged (15.55€/child).
I prepare the programme of activities, I organize team meetings, I answer parents’ questions by email and, above all, I do a lot of research to improve the proposals for our various workshops. I also take care of the children’s lunch, with special attention to birthday parties. Everything must be perfect! At the end of the day, I always take the time to talk with the parents. We invite them to visit the kids club from the first day of their arrival. It is important that they see for themselves the play area and the surprises that are reserved for their toddlers.
The kids club is divided into two areas. First, there is a small house consisting of a playground, a lounge, a dining room and a kitchen. This is where children have fun playing board games, tinkering, dancing and learning how to make pastry. To immortalize each activity, children pose with their creations in front of a photo booth. Then we enjoy a courtyard and a garden where there is a playground, a pool and even a small farm. The farm, very popular with the little ones, is home to ducks, a turtle and three rabbits, Koko, Kiki and Cartouche, named by the children. Every day, children have the opportunity to pet and feed them.
There is no predefined programme for children who join the kids club. We organize our activities in different time slots, namely a new activity every two hours from 10 a.m to 18 p.m. Among our most popular activities are crab hunting on the hotel’s private beach, lagoon fishing, henna tattoo, a Sega lesson (traditional Mauritian dance) and yoga class. We are very flexible with our programme – everything can change according to the weather or the number of visitors.
Marion was only 3 when I met her here at the kids club. She immediately became fond of me. We played a lot together and I started to think of her as my own daughter… A few years later, her mother came back to LUX * Le Morne to celebrate her wedding and guess who was chosen as maid of honour? Oh yeah! It was me! We stayed in touch thereafter and last year, Marion, who was by then 20, surprised me at the kids club for long emotional hugs, as you can imagine…
