An exotic retreat nestled at the foot of the awe-inspiring ancient Le Morne mountain, LUX* Le Morne is the perfect romantic escape for you to get newly acquainted as husband and wife. Set on the very edge of the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean and bordered by bleached white sands, enter into the richly scented surrounds of LUX* Le Morne where the lush private gardens offer a fittingly secluded spot in which to enjoy each other’s company in total luxury.
On arrival at LUX* Le Morne you could be forgiven for resting your gaze not on the exquisite lodgings, but more on the huge, majestic Le Morne peak which towers over the island resort and provides a stunning backdrop to your beachside setting. Set on the quieter south west corner of Mauritius, with turquoise water gently lapping at its feet, LUX* Le Morne is a tranquil retreat in which to indulge your most exotic beach fantasies. Or, simply indulge in the natural bounty that Mauritius has to offer and journey further inland to experience the Black River Georges National Park where wildlife abounds.
Continuing the fantastical element to your stay are the beautiful low-slung peaked huts, which fitted with sliding wooden doors, marble bathrooms and slow-turning fans, lend an air of effortless glamour to the interior. Opt for the Honeymoon Junior Suite, where along with a luxurious whirlpool bath and separate dressing room, you will have your own private balcony where you can watch the warming Mauritian sun as it sets over the Indian Ocean.
Why we like it
Bleached white sand, sparkling waters and tropical palms, yes this may already sound like the stuff of honeymoon fantasy, but add to that the fantastical backdrop of the towering UNESCO Le Morne Brabant peak and you surely have the most enchantingly perfect setting for your romantic retreat. Natural beauty aside, it is the quaint, individual touches that makes a stay at LUX* Le Morne so unforgettable. From stumbling across a secret pop-up bar cannily disguised as a wardrobe on wheels, to discovering a hidden bottle that contains a rewarding message within, LUX* Le Morne cannot fail to delight and charm in equal measure.
Island resort holidays aren’t just for grownups and LUX* Le Morne makes sure there is something for the whole family to enjoy with two excellent clubs catering for different age groups. PLAY offers children aged between three and 12 the opportunity to do just that, while exploring the many wonders and delights of island living. Kids will be kept busy doing art classes, treasure hunts and even taking Teddy Tennis lessons. Studio 17 is a haven for older children and runs activities including local dance and language classes, beach sport activities and exciting adventure trips around the island.
