LUX* Grand Baie Resort opens in Mauritius

LUX* Resorts & Hotels’ new flagship in Mauritius has opened its doors to welcome its guests, coinciding with LUX* Resorts & Hotels’ 10th anniversary.

The new generation boutique-style resort offers sophisticated beachside living for the modern, discerning traveller, with exciting dining concepts, state-of-the-art fitness and wellness facilities as well as unique Mauritian experiences for all to discover.

“LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences offers stunning surprises at every turn – from the moment guests step into the expansive lobby, guests will feel a load lift from their shoulders. From the amazing design pieces at every turn, to the perfect aperitivo at the rooftop bar and the personalized service in a safe and hygienic environment, enhanced by The Lux Collective’s health and safety programme, Collective Care, the experience will be unparalleled,” said Ashish Modak, General Manager.

Each suite, villa, residence and penthouse is a labour of love resulting in the pinnacle of luxury and comfort. Each is made to feel like a designer’s holiday home in the tropics. Settle in, relax, sunbathe, host some friends for a day party in your Penthouse, take a dip in your villa pool, or just do nothing else than laze in beauty and comfort.

•    86 LUX* Junior Suites (65 sq) present a spacious entrance, dressing room, bedroom and a bathroom featuring an oversized shower and separate bathtub. Neutrals and refined beach style will blend seamlessly with the deep blues of the surrounding ocean and white Mauritius sands.

•    20 LUX* Pool Residences (2 bedroom - 180 sq m) and 2 LUX* Pool Penthouses (3 bedroom – 325 sq m) feature private pools, modern kitchens, expansive entertainment terraces, private living and dining rooms.

•    7 LUX* Pool Villas (2 bedroom – 240 sq m) have a private pool and fire pit, as well as an outdoor gazebo and sundecks on a shaded terrace.

•    1 LUX* Grand Beach Pool Villa (3 bedroom – 420 sq m) is the ultimate tropical hideaway with direct access to the beach, a wide sun deck, and a chef de maison on hand to serve delicious spreads on the outdoor terrace.

Beach Rouge – LUX* Resorts & Hotels’ signature beach club concept - sits on the water’s edge and will serve fresh, locally-sourced cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When the sun dips below the horizon, the space will be lit in a spectacular red tint and draw a crowd to its bar with a resident DJ setting the mood from chill to groove.

Eye-catching Ai KISU (meaning ‘flame’ in Japanese) will offer a lively atmosphere and best-in-class Asian cuisine created using warayaki straw fire cooking in an open kitchen. Its accompanying private club, Club Ai KISU, will boast sleek interiors, pop-up dinner parties and sets from international DJs and local musicians alike.

European-inspired Maison LUX* will brew fresh, organic own-blend coffee and serve a curated selection of French, Italian and Spanish pastries, and homemade gelato. The jewel in the resort’s crown will be its expansive rooftop bar and restaurant Bisou which affords spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding Indian Ocean.

The adults-only area will be home to a 30-metre infinity pool which will serve tapas-style cuisine on floating trays and is surrounded by cabanas and natural greenery. As night falls, the space transforms into a lounge bar where guests will enjoy lively music sets from the hotel’s resident DJ.

A holistic approach to wellness is a key component in the design of LUX* ME Spa & Fitness. The wellness facilities will span four floors with chic interiors, cutting edge technology and ancient wisdom from the East and West creating a wellness eco system where guests can feel their best.

LUX* Me Fitness offers a unique balance of indoor and outdoor wellness experiences. A wide array of weekly fitness and wellness classes will be offered, ranging from strength and functional training, HIIT, cycling, soft sand running, to mobility recovery and Yoga, for both small and large groups. Personal training and specialized urban fitness retreats, integrating the latest exercise science principles, will also be available for individual needs and goals.

The fully equipped Fitness Centre will feature an outrace functional fitness cube and the Technogym Excite live range with six different cardio modalities for all needs and abilities. To get the heart-pumping, there will be a Technogym Group Cycle Studio with both instructor-led and virtual on-demand cycling classes. The Niyama Studio will be a minimalist mind and body space for private or small group classes including yoga, Pilates, stretch and release classes. The Wellness Bar will offer pre-session and post-workout beverages to recharge and rehydrate. – TradeArabia News Service
