Lux Le Morne Hotel 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 149 rooms (all rooms have views of the ocean), 5 infinity pools (2 heated), 1 spa, 3 restaurants and 3 bars, and also 1 great kids club and 1 teen club!
The 149 rooms are divided into 5 categories and are generously equipped:
– The Superior Room (42 sqm – 452 sqft)
– The Junior Suite, with private jacuzzi (52 sqm – 559 sqft)
– The Honeymoon Junior Suite, with private jacuzzi and private balcony (46 sqm – 495 sqft)
– The Prestige Junior Suite, with outdoor shower, located on the seafront (63 sqm – 678 sqft)
– And, finally, the Ocean Junior Suite, the closest to the beach (57 sqm – 613 sqft)
All rooms can accommodate up to 3 people, except the Honeymoon Junior Suite, which is reserved for couples. Some rooms and suites can be connected together for the comfort of families. The parents’ room is then connected to the children’s room by an interior door. Safety and comfort in one!
Each room has all the necessary facilities for a dream stay: a balcony or terrace with sea view, bathroom with bath, shower and separate toilet, telephone, TV, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, minibar, safe, hairdryer and electric kettle.
The hotel also offers 24-hour room service, a car-rental service to browse the island, a bookstore, an infirmary, a laundry, a babysitting service, a team that is specially dedicated to the organization of weddings/renewal of vows and a limousine transfer service.
The beach bordering Lux Le Morne is covered with the finest sand on the island, tended day and night by the hotel staff. No tide disturbs the transparent waters of the ocean, thanks to the coral barriers. You are literally in the middle of a sanctuary of peace.
The staff takes care of everything: cleaning your sunglasses, misting your face and a wide selection of drinks and snacks are served directly to your lounge chair.
Fun details that will guarantee great pictures: the Wish Tree and the red phone booth, so British. Children and parents are invited to hang their vows on a tree dedicated to this purpose. Once a year, a wish is randomly picked and the lucky owner is offered a complete stay at Lux Le Morme! The telephone booth, meanwhile, allows you to make free international phone calls! So cool!
The 3 restaurants of the hotel offer the best of local and international cuisine. The food served is fresh, tasty and surprising.
The Kitchen is the main restaurant. Delicious cuisine is served here. Breakfast is served as a buffet, as is dinner, while lunch is à la carte. Admire the chefs at work and enjoy each evening a lively atmosphere to the sound of tropical rhythms.
With its subtle and generous Mediterranean cuisine, The Beach is the second restaurant of the hotel. As its name suggests, it is located on the beach and offers healthy cuisine with simple and original dishes. Lunch is à la carte, as is dinner. Some evenings, theme nights are offered.
You want to enjoy Thai cuisine, with a beautiful view of the lagoon? So try East! Let yourself be tempted by modern cuisine made with typical Thai products: galangal, shrimp paste, peppers, lemongrass … Do not miss the ‘Yaam per Krob’, a crispy duck with lychee and grapes . A true delight !
But that’s not all: just before sunset, you may see Vik Chuttur, Customer Experience Manager, put on his diving suit and head for the lagoon in search of the great specialty of Mauritius: sea urchins. Extremely nutritious and endowed with a deliciously tender flesh, this seafood will delight your taste buds! Taste them directly on the beach, where Vik cleans, cuts and serves them, accompanied by a few drops of lemon and a good glass of wine.
Finally, the island has 3 bars. The Bar offers delicious light snacks to enjoy in the shade of the veranda. Café Lux offers an exceptional coffee produced on site from roasted organic grains on the island. Finally, Îlot and Oasis is a friendly pool bar where you can cool off with a delicious cocktail, freshly squeezed fruit juice or tasty snacks.
