The Lux Collective reveals plans to open new flagship property in Mauritius

The Lux Collective has revealed that Spring 2021 will see the opening of Lux Grand Baie Resort and Residences in Mauritius.

The property will be situated in the Grand Baie neighbourhood in the north of the island. Known for its beaches, vibrant downtown village and year-round climate, the new resort seeks to provide luxury, sophisticated residences for modern travellers.

With contemporary architecture that blends into its tropical surroundings, the interior design will be headed by Kelly Hoppen.

A neutral colour palette, soft textures and wooden accents will combine to create a calming atmosphere that allows the vibrant shades of the Mauritian surroundings to take centre stage.

The main resort complex will comprise 86 suites and eight two-bedroom villas, each with private pools.

Sitting adjacent to the resort and connected by a bridge are a further 24 residences complete with two bedrooms, private pools and small, modern kitchens.

Each room overlooks the resort’s sheltered beach and lagoon, whilst floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive terraces maximise on the views.

The resort also comprises a signature three-bedroom beachfront Lux Villa with direct access to the beach, a wide sun deck, and a fully equipped kitchen. Guests staying here have the choice between their own private pool or one of the resort’s three communal swimming pools.

Offering relaxed all-day dining , Beach Rouge, Lux Resorts and Hotels’ signature beach club concept, sits on the water’s edge and serves fresh, locally sourced cuisine.

Ai Kisu, the Japanese word for ‘flame’, will offer Asian cuisine in a lively atmosphere, meanwhile its accompanying nightclub will adopt sleek interiors and provide a space in which DJs and musicians can entertain guests.

Ici will create artisanal homemade dairy and bean ice creams, sorbets and popsicles, whilst Café Lux will brew fresh, organic, own-blend coffee.

A line-up of bars will include an in-pool bar that guests can swim up to, as well as an additional pool deck bar serving fresh juices, smoothies and cocktails.

Affording panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, the resort’s expansive rooftop will be an adults-only area with a 30-metre infinity pool surrounded by cabanas and greenery.  Also situated here will be Bisou, an inventive raw restaurant and bar.

Further facilities at the resort will encompass a Lux Me wellbeing spa and fitness concept, a Play Kids Club for children aged three to eleven, and Studio 17, a hang-out area for teenagers.
