Family holidays in Mauritius refreshed at LUX* Le Morne Resort

Hard to believe, but LUX* Le Morne Resort is 24 years old. Tucked between dramatic Le Morne Brabant and the Indian Ocean, it still looks as fresh as ever. But apparently not quite fresh enough. Because over the past year the extraordinary team of architects and designers who create the LUX* look have worked tirelessly to revitalise the resort. Expect lighter, brighter and more contemporary design in harmony with the gorgeous natural setting. There’s a brand new Tree House hideaway. And Vik’s Place now brings even more authentic local culture, tradition and heritage to Mauritius family holidays. Tempted?

Mauritius family holidays LUX Belle Mare Resort and Villas family villa east coast Mauritius

LUX* Belle Mare adds green and sustainable to its many talents

LUX* Belle Mare Resorts & Villas luxuriates on the wilder, less travelled east coast of Mauritius. It’s always been favoured by more independent minded families – big family villas with even bigger ocean views, say it all. But 2021 sees the resort going a little bit further on the independence front with Aubergine Farm. This amazing agricultural project produces 300kg of pesticide-free herbs, fruits and vegetables every month. Naturally all that goodness is woven into food and cocktails for guests. However, if you want to go one better this autumn or winter (summer on Mauritius) you can take a tour of the greenhouses, learn about hydroponics and make your own farm-to-fork salad – Aubergine Farm also serves you a fabulous and very healthy lunch as part of the tour.
