Now Open: LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences Welcomes Guests for the Festive Season
03 December 2021
LUX* Resorts & Hotels’ new flagship in Mauritius opened its doors to welcome its first guests on 1 December 2021. 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.
ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN
Jean-Francois Adam, the Mauritius-based architect who has spearheaded the design of the property, has been inspired by a childhood spent on the very beach the resort is set on, and observing sailing boat architecture. The result is a design concept that champions indoor-outdoor living and ‘purity’ by working in harmony with the natural surroundings. The architecture breaks away from the traditional mould in Mauritius whilst honouring the island’s raw materials.
Design maestro, Kelly Hoppen CBE, has created the interiors that encapsulate the beauty of the land and the Indian Ocean with voluminous spaces enhanced by a multitude of exquisite neutral and natural textures and tones which exude sophistication and comfort.
INTRODUCING NEW AND EXCITING LUX* SIGNATURE ACCOMMODATION
Each suite, villa, residence and penthouse are 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 sqm) 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 sqm) and 2 LUX* Pool Penthouses (3 bedroom – 325 sqm) feature private pools, modern kitchens, expansive entertainment terraces, private living and dining rooms.
- 7 LUX* Pool Villas (2 bedroom – 240 sqm) 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 sqm) 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.
Our LUX* Pool Penthouse, LUX* Pool Villa, LUX* Grand Beach Pool Villa all benefit from private Butler service.
DINE AND DANCE IN STYLE
Offering laid-back dining from morning to night, 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 30m 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.
CUTTING EDGE WELLNESS AND FITNESS
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. The spa will offer an array of immersive thermal experiences including a unique hydrotherapy concept, Kneipp walk, Turkish Hammam and Tepidarium soaks, alongside eight spacious treatment rooms where guests can experience signature spa treatments on high-tech beds.
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, softsand 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.
The Indian Ocean’s first-ever full-fledged outdoor rooftop wellness experience, Muscle Up on the Roof, will feature two 30-metre Olympic-standard running tracks and a MyBeast Functional Fitness Frame equipped with 12 workout stations such as power rack, multi pull-up and punching bag.
PLAY is all about mindfulness and modern experiences for children between three and 12 years old. With expertly curated activities that support individuality, self-discovery and development, programmes are centred around five pillars; eat well, move, care, feel and create. Children will try their hands at the Little Green Fingers gardening project, making gelato at the Ice Cream Lab and creating calm with a session of Junior Yoga. Teens will spend time at Studio 17 playing vintage arcade games, exploring their musical talents at the DJ deck or honing their creative eye at the Photofanatics station. They can explore the seas with windsurf, kayak and paddle board lessons.
