Travellers' Choice
LUX* Grand Baie, a modernist marvel seemingly dropped onto a crescent of sand on the northern shores of Mauritius, turns heads. This new generation boutique-style resort introduces travelers to the seductive, slow pace of island living. But not too slow… LUX* Grand Baie, mirroring the adjacent beach town from which it takes its name, is exciting and playful. Whether it’s the unparalleled culinary scene or the breath-taking rooftop experience, there is truly no other celebratory place to be. A real invitation to seize the moment.

Dear LUX Grand Baie Team, Many thanks for the amazing experience you shared with us during our previous visit. An experience started with a reservation department, Andy arranged everything for me, vip lounge at our arrival in the airport and etc. I vecrented the biggest villa in a hotel and it was really fabulous! General manager Nicolas met us at our arrival and check in went immediately. The hotel and it's área look fantastic, flowered, safe, and very fashionable. SPA is so cute and relaxed. Dushee, thanks so much for fantastic massages! The Japanees restaurant they have you will hardly find in whole Europa to be honest! And of course, having the best villa in the resort, you will get the best butler I ever met. Dear Avinass, God bless you! You really made our stay unforgettable. I wish you lots of health and luck! It was a big honor to be served by you. Dear Team, Please!!!! Keep going! It is not an easy thing to maintain the services you provide to your gest, but please keep going and looking forward to meeting you at the beginning of 2025!!!

I had the privilege of traveling to the beautiful country of Mauritius on business. I took the opportunity to stay an extra few days to appreciate the hotel and beach. I am glad I did. For starters, the hotel is lovely. My room faced the ocean and offered a picturesque view every morning and evening. The bed is comfortable and all the amenities made it perfect. Next up is the spa. I have traveled around the world and have been to many spas. This spa is top-notch. I highly recommended the Ritual Immersion. It is custom to your needs and it is a blissful 3 hours. The facilities in the spa are amazing as well. As a guest you get to take advantage of the sauna, steam, cold plunge and immersive showers. The food was amazing. I ate at every restaurant and nothing disappointed. The roof top bar is a MUST. I watched the sunset one evening. Pictures do it NO justice. The beach speaks for itself. Finally, the staff was fabulous. Thank you for a great few days. I will be back!!!!

We had a wonderful vacation/honeymoon with our family there. The resort is very kid friendly and all employees are super helpful and very attentive. We enjoyed a romantic and very delicious dinner in the cocoon at the beach and other honeymoon specials. Our daughter had a great time at the play centre and enjoyed the beach as much as the pool. Each meal we had was absolutely delicious! Our apartment was spacious, very nice and always cleaned and tidied. Only drawback: its situated behind a busy road which makes it noisy but it's a short walk to the hotel.

Excellent hotel, perfect decorated, great location near the beach, helpful and service orientated staff, especially Jamie, Kishan and Jerome. Food was really tasty, big variety and amazing creations by the pastry chef. Water activities were entertaining for the whole family. Negative: disappointed by double booked room so they had to switch us to a room with street view the first 2 days- far from the beach with only 1 week notice ahead. We got some compensation but was a big inconvenience. Flies in the buffet room, food did not always have cover as protection.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this exceptional hotel. The setting, the room, the service was impeccable. I would especially like to mention Brinda at front desk for making our stay very comfortable throughout our break. She provided us with exceptional service every time we needed anything. Also Steven at the gym, I attended a complimentary functional fitness class with him and Jean who carried out a sound mediation class. Both were great! We will definitely be recommending this hotel to friends and family and look forward to our next visit.

Where do we start with the Lux GB… the facilities are amazing, the style, the luxury, the beach. The food, delicious and varied - loved the all inclusive. All incredible and actually better than we had hoped. But what sets this hotel apart is the staff. Each member showing personality, enthusiastic hospitality and care towards their guests and never have we ever got to know so many members of staff. We consider ourselves to have a new Mauritius family. We booked a combination stay, starting in the lowest category room the Junior Suite and moving into the incredible Grand Beach Villa. Attention to detail, housekeeping, style… doesn’t change depending on the room. Eddie and the team moved all our belongings so swiftly and was so accommodating with us. But with the villas comes the butler service. This, was one of our favourite things because we felt like Kishan became part of our family. He allowed privacy but ensured we had everything we needed. His hospitality and skill at his work knows no bounds. We cannot speak highly enough of him and his level of service but he is an undoubtably beautiful human being also. He saw beauty in moments, creating wonder and romance for us every day - like adding flowers to our breakfast at our villa, or setting our beach table out with bottled water and a vase. Little touches meant the world and honestly he is a credit to the hotel. Next.. our favourite place outside the Grand Villa.. Maison Lux*. Not many hotels offer 5* coffees with unbelievable service and the most talented skilled baristas. With a choice of five home roasted beans and a decaf option as well as the addition of cocktails (espresso martinis at an espresso bar… yes please [Avishay looking at you - you superstar]). This really is a coffee lovers dream. After telling the incredible Avishay, Manen and Varoona that we love making coffee but have been struggling to make latte art, the group offered us a practice session every single time we turned up at Maison Lux. You are family to us now. The passion they shared with was was the most wonderful thing and the delight they offered when I successfully steamed milk without their help was true, honest and genuine. The whole Maison Lux team including John and Saleen were masters of their craft. Thank you for sharing that with us. Bisou - although honestly we felt it lacked a little atmosphere in the early evening, we loved it at lunch. The tapas was gorgeous and we never felt short with 8 dishes for lunch - often way too much so totally generous for the all inclusive. After becoming slight creatures of habit, it was so lovely to be greeted with a little glass of our favourite limoncello when we arrived. Made us feel so at home and Olivier you made us feel so welcome and we will be back so keep that limoncello on order! Ai Kitsu we went to almost every other day. Like having a city bar vibe with open kitchen was wonderful to watch. We opted to sit at the chefs table watching the “fire” and it was such a privilege. We tried most of the menu (barely leaving the all inclusive allowance) and as a special finale to our holiday the chef asked to treat us on the final visit. He kept bringing more and more food. Honestly everything was insanely delicious. We didn’t find a dish we didn’t like. Kudos to the chef and his team including Bernard and Bella serving - all superstars. Beach Rouge food also incredible. The steaks, the burgers, the beach BBQ. Wow. For the hotels “standard” restaurant it did not disappoint. As we were all inclusive the only downside was struggling to fit in so many meals - we wished we had gone more for lunch but just couldn’t manage it! Wine. The sommelier at Beach Rouge, Shavin, was so knowledgeable and consistently recommended lovely wines we could have within our all inclusive plan. Thank you so much for keeping us watered during our holiday :) As not really “beachy people”, the option of having beach loungers ready for us and our room being just steps off the beautiful beach was perfect. We used it all the time. The button service so handy and people so friendly. We absolutely made the most of it and thank you so much to Jayen & Jesson and all the staff who were so full of positive energy and brought such incredible vibes to each day. Shout out to the pizza chef - woweee what a beach treat! We took the hotels car service on a day trip to Port Louis and got the most amazing historical overview of Mauritius. Manoj knows everything and was a wonderful driver (and I usually get motion sickness). We actually changed our return journey so he took us back to the airport too. Thank you :) We also took a boat ride despite being nervous about being on the water. The onsite team were so supportive and we really enjoyed our trips out. All in all, we made memories we will never forget and can only think about repeating our visit in 2025! The only downside is coming to terms with no all inclusive after leaving and feeling genuinely sad to leave this magical place and the people. Thank you Lux GB. We left part of our hearts with you and we will be back to refill it. Until next time - please don’t change.
