Highs + Lows

  • It’s never a dull moment at the LUX* hotels, as there are tons of workshops and activities offered at the LUX* LeMorne, ranging from Paddleboard Yoga, Aqua Serena Janzu water therapy, Uni tasting, Meditation, and my own offering for the workshop, ‘De-Mystifying Music’ on the grand piano in Cafe Lux.

  • LUX* Resorts Spas have their own indulgent skincare line available at the LUX* Me Spa. Gold dust face scrub and Lemongrass Salt Body Scrub are my favorites.

  • You may come across a “message-in-a-bottle” hidden around the resort, which contains vouchers for spa treatments and lovely perks... I found one just outside of the Gym which contained a voucher for free drinks!

  • The details and utmost levels of service in this hotel areeveryting.

  • Plastic bottles in the mini-bar. When luxury five-star resorts near the sea stock plastic bottles in the Mini-Bar, no matter how much I love the resort, I go mental. Glass bottles would be more appealing! Lux have an absolutely brilliant carbon offsetting program, which would be complimented bymindfulness of disposable plastic served to guests.
