Reasons to go LUX*

So many reasons...

We go on holiday to escape the routine…

Stay at a conventional resort and before long you’ll know where everything is. That won’t happen at LUX*. We’re in touch with our impromptu side, and we love surprising you with delightful pop-up treats. An ice cream cart here, a fresh coconut stall over there… You may stumble on a secret bar – there one day, gone the next. Al fresco dining, private picnics, goodies hidden in the gardens… They all reflect our spontaneous side, and a desire to celebrate moments that live long in the memory. Prepare to be surprised with our Reasons To Go LUX* Resorts & Hotels.

Sights & Sounds by LUX*


A holiday without ice cream isn’t a holiday at all so we created our own brand called ‘ici’. An array of exotic, island flavours are served from retro-styled parlours and mobile carts while a fresh waffle cone is baked right in front of your eyes. Crunch. Munch. Perfect after lunch.

Café LUX*

We believe that great coffee is a must and not a luxury so at the heart of each resort, you’ll find a Café LUX*. Enjoy our organic Island Blend, freshly roasted on-site, in a truly different café setting. Flat White or FrappeLux – they’re perfect for a seaside sip and surf.

Phone Home

We believe that holidays should be stress and hassle-free, which is why if you explore our resorts you’ll find a telephone box and inside a vintage VOIP phone. Here you can make local and international calls free of charge. We just ask one thing. Please do not call the office!


LUX* Me is an integrated philosophy of wellbeing, offering a step by step path to an altogether healthier way of life. Naturally, in addition to al fresco classes, our personal trainers specialise in pilates, yoga and meditation classes as well as tailoring programmes to you and your requirements. Now stretch!


We love a good Burgundy or vintage Bordeaux but the Indian Ocean’s a long way from the vineyards of France so we’ve tapped South Africa for its most exciting contemporary wines. Cape blends survive the short journey in mint condition. Introducing ‘Scrucap’ and ‘Popcap’. Not a corked wine in sight.

Cinema Paradiso

A large screen, fastened between two palms, flickers into life and you’re transported to another world – of blockbusters, family classics and world cinema. It wouldn’t be the movies without the nibbles, so there’s fresh popcorn on the house, ‘ici’ ice cream and drinks served right to your beanbag. Curtain Up!

Message in a Bottle

You spot a lonely bottle hidden in a bush beside a sandy path. Inside this mysterious vessel, you find a scroll of paper, which reveals a special treat waiting for one lucky guest. Stay alert because it’s only if you find the bottle that this daily surprise can be yours.

Tread Lightly

We can't always promise clear skies above the Indian Ocean but, with your help, we can guarantee a clear conscience.

LUX* cares about the islands that are home to its properties. After all, memorable holidays shouldn't cost the earth and that's why we are doing our best to 'Tread Lightly' by offsetting 100% of the carbon emitted at our resorts. It's one of a number of measures we're putting in place to help us leave a lighter footprint.

The islands of Mauritius, La Réunion and the Maldives are spectacular. Together, we can do our bit to make sure they stay that way.

Mamma Aroma

For as long as any of us can remember, amenities have been a staple in every hotel and resort bathroom around the world.

Imagine hair lovingly nourished by deep conditioners; lazy baths scented with tropical oils; bodies gently burnished with a patina of sea salt scrub and sun-kissed skin glowing with the natural moisturizing properties of the island's products.

LUX* Resorts & Hotels offers you, for your bath experience, something different: an element of surprise, a gasp of pleasure and a nod to simplicity are behind our selection. And being considerate to the environment, our products and their packaging are as light on the planet as they are on the body.

We have also worked with renowned aromatherapist Shirley Page to create an exclusive range of essential oils, using island ingredients-essences, flowers and spices that combine to create a magical world of fragrance. Used in our LUX* Me spa, the oils are also present in interior and linen scents.

Tree of wishes

​At every LUX* Resort & Hotel you’ll find a specially commissioned Tree of Wishes sculpture. 
Upon check-in you’ll be presented with a unique ribbon or tag featuring your initials and the date of your visit. Tie the ribbon around one of the enchanting branches and make a wish.  While we can’t guarantee your wish will come true, we can promise that once a year one tag will be selected and the lucky person who placed it there will win a free LUX* holiday.
