When a resort has pretty little carts serving up homemade (fat-free) ice-cream and goes to the effort of hiding messages in bottles on the beach or planting a tree just for hanging wishes on, you know it really gets kids. LUX* Belle Mare is that resort and doesn’t nothing to hide the fact, so younger guests can look forward to movies under the stars at Cinema Paradiso, sweet treats on demand and the type of featherlight attention that feels good, but doesn’t curb free-spirits in the slightest.
PLAY is the all-day club for three to 12 year olds, open until 10pm every day and fully supervised by the professional LUX* childcare team. A focus on creative fun is perfect for bringing shy kids out of their shell, but there’s plenty of outdoor and beachy adventure in the mix here too. Plus, PLAY likes to get children better acquainted with Mauritius, so island outings are another source of excitement.
LUX* more than looks after hard-to-please over 12s and teens at Belle Mare too. Studio 17 is custom-designed to satisfy all cravings for cool hang-out space, right down to games tables and iMac stations. But it also recognises that even older kids are just kids at heart and twins freedom with masses of activities on the beach, as well as island trips and up-close encounters with colourful Mauritian culture. All lightly supervised for parental peace of mind, of course.
And if that’s not kid-centric enough, LUX* as good as gives Fridays over to the young with baking and cake decoration from Cake Boss in the afternoon and a major outdoor movie night after dark.
