LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas

Enjoy the view of pristine white beaches and a sparkling lagoon from your traditionally thatched villa or suite at this exceptional hotel in Mauritius. The resort is a modern take on traditional Mauritian hospitality, with a discreet yet vibrant LUX* touch. A statement 2000m2 swimming pool, one of the islands largest, with a separate area for children, is at the heart of this 5-star resort as you wander past various tantalising restaurants. Take a dip or be tempted by freshly made ice cream.

LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas

From palm-tree strung hammocks to feet-in-the-sand dining under the stars, the five-star deluxe LUX* Grand Gaube is a pioneering vision from international designer Kelly Hoppen, which delivers an eclectic retro-chic lifestyle that’s effortlessly sophisticated, yet blissfully informal.

Sun-blessed by day and moon-struck at night, there’s never a dull moment, whether you’re a can’t-sit-still family or an eyes-only-for-each-other couple.

LUX* Le Morne Resort

A jewel in the crown of Mauritius, sheltered by the Le Morne Brabant peak – a breath-taking UNESCO World Heritage site and blessed with the best sunset of the island, life’s a beach at LUX* Le Morne. The chic and serene boutique resort at the foot of Le Morne mountain calls all lovers of barefoot luxury and mindful travel. The postcard beach barely needs an introduction. As for the hotel, it’s a gem that truly embodies the spirit of island living.

LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences

An innovatively elegant hotel in Grand Baie, Mauritius, on the island’s most coveted beach, where new luxury seductively blends with the spirited vibe of tropical island living. 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 travellers 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!

SALT of Palmar

SALT has opened its doors to its first resort, Adults only, 59 key SALT of Palmar located on the east coast of Mauritius. It is a restful base conceived to champion sustainability, connect with the local community and introduce culturally curious, modern travellers to the real, unvarnished Mauritius - committed to taking guests to people – not just places.

The expansive beachfront, endless ocean, and infinite breathing room, make it ideal for the traveller who seeks calm with a hint of vibrancy.

Tamassa All-inclusive Resort

Derived from 'tamasha', a Hindi word used in Mauritian Creole meaning festive, Tamassa’s three syllables evoke the pounding beat of the tam-tam drum. Our rallying call is to gather family and friends and join us at a place dedicated to sharing good times, together.

The best memories are often made around a table, and good food always tastes better paired with great company. With a focus on fresh, simple ingredients paired with a dose of theatricality and fun, we’re bringing the art of conversation back to the table – and everyone’s invited. Tamassa’s all-inclusive offer covers accommodation, three delectable daily meals, free unlimited water skiing, use of the mini-bar, unlimited in-room tea/coffee and unlimited local beverages while bars are open.
