02 March 2020
Hospitality trailblazer The Lux Collective has announced plans for its newest property, LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences. The hotel will open in Mauritius in the second quarter of 2021 and will become the flagship property for the group’s much-loved brand LUX* Resorts & Hotels. Located in the popular Grand Baie neighbourhood in the north of the island, known for its picturesque beaches, vibrant downtown village and favourable year-round climate, the property will offer sophisticated beachside living for the upscale, modern traveller.
Contemporary architecture will see the resort blend seamlessly into its tropical surroundings, whilst interiors have been conceived by renowned London-based designer Kelly Hoppen. A neutral colour palette, elegant soft textures and wooden accents will create a calming sanctuary that allows the vibrant shades of the Mauritian surroundings to speak for themselves.
Set to become the most exciting newly built resort in Mauritius, LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences will house 86 spacious suites (65sqm) and eight two-bedroom villas with private swimming pools (from 240sqm) in the main resort complex. Sitting adjacent to the resort are an additional 24 luxurious residences (from 180sqm), complete with two bedrooms, private pools and small modern kitchens, connected by bridge to the main resort. All rooms overlook the resort’s pristine sheltered beach and lagoon, whilst floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive terraces maximise the views Grand Baie is famed for. To increase sleep wellness, the design team engaged with an acoustics expert to carefully configure every suite to eliminate outside noise.
The signature three-bedroom Beachfront LUX* Villa (420sqm) provides the ultimate tropical hideaway with direct access to the beach, a wide sun deck, and a fully equipped kitchen with a personal chef and butler on standby. Guests can opt to spend days at their own private pool or visit one of the resort’s three communal swimming pools.
Offering laid-back dining from morning to night, Beach Rouge – LUX* Resorts & Hotels’ signature beach club concept - sits on the water’s edge and serves fresh, locally-sourced cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eye-catching Ai KISU (meaning ‘flame’ in Japanese) will offer best-in-class Asian cuisine in a lively atmosphere, whilst its accompanying nightclub affords sleek interiors and sets from international DJs and local musicians alike. Perennial Reasons to Go LUX* favourite ICI will create artisanal homemade dairy and vegan ice creams, sorbets and popsicles, and Café LUX will brew fresh organic own-blend coffee. Completing the impressive line-up of bars is an in-pool bar that guests can swim up to, and an additional pool deck bar serving up fresh juices, smoothies and cocktails.
The jewel in the resort’s crown will be its expansive rooftop, affording spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding Indian Ocean. The adults-only area will be home to a 30m infinity pool surrounded by cabanas and plenty of natural greenery; Bisou, an inventive raw restaurant and bar; a cookery school showcasing the best of Mauritius’ vibrant flavours; and an open-air wellness space for sunrise meditation and yoga classes. As night falls, guests will enjoy lively music sets from the hotel’s resident DJ.
LUX* Me Wellbeing offers an array of immersive thermal experiences including a unique hydrotherapy concept, Turkish Hammam and Tepidarium soaks, alongside eight spacious treatment rooms where guests can experience signature spa treatments on sand and water beds. The LUX* Me Fitness concept will curate wellbeing programmes for guests tailored to their body types and fitness goals, overseen by an experienced Wellness Concierge. The hotel also offers a yoga and Pilates studio, fully equipped gym and indoor cycling studio which will conduct energising classes to a heart-pumping playlist.
Children will be well looked after with an array of family programmes focused on fun-filled learning and mindfulness. The PLAY Kids Club for children aged 3 to 11 offers an outdoor garden space, aquatic zone, library, arts and crafts area and mini-kitchen.
