We stayed in Lux Belle Mare for 5 nights in the last week on February 2012. We were on our honeymoon and moved in here after staying for 4 nights in Le Meridien, Mauritius. We had read nice things about Lux on Tripadvisor and also heard the same from many people we met in Mauritius. The resort lived up to its reputation and we were happy with our choice.
Location: The resort's location on the East coast has both advantages and disadvantages. The good part is that it has a nice clean beach with powdery white sand which is what most tourists to Mauritius are looking for! The ocean is calm and clean and one can enjoy swimming in it. The are lots of water activities nearby- like under sea-walk, para-gliding, tube ride etc. The drive to/ from the airport along the coastal road is quite scenic.
However, the resort is a good 1.5-2 hours away from hot spots like Port Louis, Grand Bay, Flic en Flac etc.
Room: We put up in the Junior Suite which is quite big and nicely done up. Our room did not have a view of the ocean but that was OK since we had enjoyed the view in Le Meridien.
Facilities: The resort has arguably the best swimming pool in the island. A number of water activities like snorkeling, paddle boating, glass bottom boat, water skiing etc are provided free by the resort. It has a couple of desktops for use by the guests and a couple of shops if you are interested in buying souveniers. WiFi is free across the resort.
Food: The resort has 4 restaurants but we only ate at 'The Kitchen' which is where the buffet is put up. The breakfast spread is the best I have ever seen. They have a different theme for dinner every night e.g. Asian, Continental, Arabic, Mauritian etc. The buffets were so good that we did not feel like experimenting at the other restaurants. A large number of ice cream flavours like passion fruit, pine apple, coconut, strawberry, chocolate, yoghurt etc are served after dinner. However, the choice of desserts other than ice-creams is limited.
Staff: The staff is polite, helpful and efficient.
Me and my wife had an enjoyable stay in Lux Belle Mare and we will certainly return here whenever we make our next trip to Mauritius. We will also visit the Lux resort in Maldives soon.
