Mauritius: LUX* Le Morne

This stunning resort has a strong claim to occupying the most scenic spot in Mauritius. It has a colossal view of Le Morne Brabant towering to one side, a sweep of blue lagoon on the other and miles of beach in front.

Over on the always warm south-west coast of the island, the sunset alone is enough to make a holiday unforgettable, so it’s small wonder that so many travellers choose to
make LUX* Le Morne their Indian Ocean home. Couples and honeymooners come for the jaw-dropping romance of the scenery; families take advantage of five swimming pools and the all-day kids’ club; serenity seekers make beelines for the LUX* Me spa; and thrillseekers are drawn to the innumerable opportunities for adventure – on land, on the water and beneath the waves.

The resort’s 149 luxurious and chalet-style suites all provide lagoon and sea views, but there’s so much more to do here than soak up the scenery. Le Morne is the perfect place to test out watersports skills, offering the best kitesurfng on the island, as well as perfect waters for windsurfing, waterskiing, swimming and snorkelling. And the UNESCO-protected landmark of Le Morne mountain is more than just a ruggedly beautiful backdrop. Guests can hike or bike their way around the peninsula, and
those that make it to the mountaintop are rewarded with the most mind-blowing panorama in Mauritius.

As well as having on-site tennis and beach volleyball, some of the island’s best golf courses are within easy reach. LUX* Le Morne also has all the facilities you’d expect of a five-star hideaway. Pull up a beanbag and catch a film screening on the beach, wander through tranquil, kaleidoscopically colourful gardens, dine on classic Creole cuisine at the Island Kitchen, authentic Thai at East, or settle down for a meal for two at the ocean’s edge, beneath a canopy of stars.
