The LUX* Le Morne is situated beneath the majestic gaze of Le Morne mountain.

One of three beautiful pool areas.

So many levels of chill

Ladies dressed in Saree hand-roll Roti and Dal Puri at the delectable Mauritian Island Feast each Saturday, accompanied by live Sega musicians.

The exterior of our Ocean Junior Suite

The Ocean Junior Suite bungalows feature outdoor AND indoor showers, cheeky bathtub, and the coziest crispest white bed I’ve ever slept in.

ICI Ice Cream serving up coco sorbet and ice lollies by the pool.

Golden Hour on Le Morne beach

Sparkling blue seas, and my most favorite fin mule & dive instructor @gideon.malan

View of The Beach Restaurant from the water

Incredible massages in the LUX* Me Spa - each beginning with the vibrations of a tibetan singing bowl on the body.

The Grand Piano at Cafe LUX* is likely my happiest place in the world... overlooking the ocean and epic sunsets.

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.
