We go on holiday to escape the routine… Stay at a conventional resort and before long you’ll know where everything is. That won’t happen at LUX* Resorts and Resorts. At LUX* every moment matters. The have created simple, fresh and sensory experiences to indulge you throughout your stay. We absolutely love the attention to detail and the lengths they go to surprise and delight their guests. With generous touches and creative details around every corner here are ten reasons why we love LUX* Resorts and Hotels…
1. Al fresco film nights at Cinema Paradiso
Beanbags? Check. Fresh popcorn? Absolutely. Ice Cream? Of course. The al fresco boutique cinemas show cult classics, theme nights, family-friendly blockbusters and much more all under the stars and completely on the house! With state of the art rear projectors, wireless headphones, luxurious setting areas and exquisite snacks, Cinema Paradiso is a huge hit!
2. Message in a bottle
LUX* are all about keeping things fun and spontaneous! Every day is a treasure hunt with delightful surprises hidden around every corner. Spot a bottle buried in the sand with a message inside. No it’s not an ancient SOS from a stranded castaway… instead, you will find a gift: a candle-lit dinner for two by the water’s edge, a spa treatment, or a scuba diving lesson. Whatever the reward, it is on the house!
3. Phone Home
Not all ‘smart’ phones are mobile. Say goodbye to roaming charges and those nasty phone bill surprises whilst you are away. Instead, make the most of LUX*’s vintage red telephone boxes… step inside and call friends and family for free. There’s only one condition- you’re not allowed to call the office!
4. Make a wish
Close your eyes and make a wish. At every LUX* resort, you’ll find a Tree of Wishes sculpture. Upon check-in, you’ll be presented with a unique ribbon and tag with your initials on. Tie the ribbon around one of the enchanting branches and make your wish… We can’t promise that it will come true but once a year one lucky winner will win a free LUX* holiday!
5. The Sound of LUX* App
Bored with your music library? Solution: these downloadable playlists curated by LUX*’s professional music maestros ensure that every step of your stay- from basking on the beach to pre-dinner drinks, has a soundtrack to match your mood!
A holiday without ice cream is like an infinity pool without water. So LUX* have created their very own ice-cream brand called ‘ICI’. Boutique ice-cream stall are dotted around each resort serving these delicious homemade treats, including hand-waffled cones, glorious toppings and tailor-made flavours! Our favourite combo is Sicilian Pistachio Variegato and Madagascan Vanilla!
7. LUX* Me
The integrated philosophy of well-being with a step by step path to a healthier way of life includes outdoor exercise classes, personal trainers specialising in Pilates, yoga and meditation and a wellness programme created just for you! Your vitality-boosting regime will ensure you leave LUX* re-energised and fitter than when you arrived!
8. Café LUX*
Excellent coffee is a must not a luxury, that’s why you will find fresh-roasted barista-made coffee at the heart of all their resorts in Café LUX*. Perfecting the art of the perfect coffee, Café LUX* roast their fresh cocoa beans on-site so you can enjoy the most aromatic bean to cup coffee! They will even take you on a behind the scenes tour…
9. Panama Hat Station
Lightweight, brimmed straw headgear from Ecuador is an essential for any shade-seeker! Whether you prefer the traditional black-grosgrain ribbon or boldly hued band, browse the LUX* Panama Station and their range of hats at the pop-up stall!
LUX* have introduced a new wandering Aperitivo Bar, designed to tantalise the taste buds before dinner with tasty tapas and signature cocktails created by their expert mixologist… Of course, this is no ordinary Aperitivo Bar, the renowned LUX* twist is that you won’t find this bar in the same place twice! One night it could be on the beach for some barefoot nibbles in the sand, another night it could be nestled away under some fairy lit palm trees…
