Our favourite rooms
The adjoining Ocean and Prestige Junior Suites are the best option for families that like to stay connected; although their beachside setting makes them a popular choice for all. Whether it’s your honeymoon or just another romantic retreat, the whirlpool baths and private sea-view balconies of the Honeymoon Junior Suites, will help set the mood for a loved-up getaway.
There are five swimming pools for you to take a dip in; two are heated, there’s an over-eights-only infinity pool in the spa and one has a children’s section.
The Lux Me spa has a long list of treatments that covers every possible need: fight the long flight with a jet-lag massage, detox and hydrate with a nourishing body wrap, or enjoy a romantic couple’s massage under the stars. Kids (over-eights) can enjoy some down time too with a cocoa body wrap and scrub, or a mini massage. They also offer tinting and waxing, manicures and pedicures, hair and make-up and henna – pampering head to toe. While waiting for your treatment, or to keep the relaxation coming afterwards, take a seat in the hammam or sauna, and let your cares float away in the whirlpool and infinity pool.
Keep your suitcase light with lots of kaftans, swimwear and the occasional piece of evening attire.
All ground-floor rooms are wheelchair accessible and have specially adapted bathrooms.
Children of all ages are welcome. There’s a family friendly pool, sand pit and playground on site and two kids’ clubs. Babysitting is available for between MUR300 and MUR900, depending on times, and must be booked a day in advance.
