Tucked away on the glorious west coast of Mauritius, not only is LUX* Le Morne flanked by the rugged, majestic Le Morne mountain on one side and miles of sandy beaches on the other, but our favourite hotel in Mauritius also offers a whole host of unique quirky reasons to go LUX*.
LUX* are in touch with their impromptu side and love surprising you with delightful pop-up treats ….an ice cream cart here, a secret bar there, a message in a bottle hidden in the sand … all reflect the spontaneous side of LUX* so be prepared to be surprised!
Message in a bottle – if you spot a lonely bottle in the sand, look inside and you’ll find a scroll of paper with a special treat just for the lucky recipient – so stay alert and this daily surprise could be yours for the taking!
Secret Bar – you might think you have stumbled across a wardrobe on wheels or a characterful wooden cart, partially hidden behind some palms trees …..be curious and take a look inside – you may just find a bottle of your favourite tipple! This is LUX’s secret bar – here one day – gone the next … you may spot it again a couple of days later on a secluded part of the beach!
ICI – a holiday without ice cream really isn’t a holiday so LUX created their very own brand ‘ici’. Enjoy an array of exotic flavours served from retro-styled parlours and mobile carts while a fresh waffle cone is baked in front of your eyes!
Cinema Paradiso – imagine watching your favourite blockbuster or classic movie on a large screen strung between two palms with fresh pop corn, ‘ici’ ice cream and drinks served to your bean bag – only with LUX!
Cafe LUX – Great coffee is a must and at the heart of every LUX resort is Cafe LUX where you can enjoy LUX’s own organic island blend, freshly roasted on site! Flat White or FrappeLux – they’re perfect for a seaside sip and surf!
Phone Home – we love this idea! Go exploring and you’ll find a vintage telephone box from where you can make local and international calls free of charge! That’s why we love LUX so much! Just don’t call the office!
Tread Lightly – LUX cares about the destinations that are home to its properties and whilst they can’t promise clear skies, they can guarantee a clear conscience! LUX offset 100% of the carbon emitted during your stay! It’s one of a number of measures they are putting in place to help you leave a lighter footprint!
And if these aren’t enough reasons to head to LUX Le Morne – then hopefully a free night is!
