Mauritius
LUX* Grand Baie

This idyllic retreat on the northern shores of Mauritius offers luxurious accommodation, terrific dining and an impressive array of family-friendly touches, from children’s clubs to pampering sessions designed especially for little ones.

Add to this a ravishing rooftop pool, a packed fitness schedule, fun foodie experiences and slick design and you have a unique Mauritian escape that the whole family will love.

Facilities & Activities

The hotel features numerous pools, including a main, palm-fringed option with sea views and – the standout – a rooftop infinity pool complete with an Insta-worthy swing. There is also a four-storey wellness facility with another pool (this time indoor and heated, part of a hydrothermal bath experience).

The spa has seven high-tech treatment rooms, plus a relaxation garden and pool. Meanwhile, gym bunnies can get their fix in the fitness suite, join a group class or hit the Olympic-standard running tracks on the rooftop. There is also a yoga studio, spin bike room and hairdresser on site.

For culinary lovers, the Food Lab is a fun chef’s table experience. Watch three of the resort’s top chefs cook you a decadent, eight-course meal right in front of your eyes – paired with wines chosen by the head sommelier. Expect delicacies such as caviar, lobster, edible gold and truffle. The hotel also offers experiences such as rum tasting and has its own small-batch ice cream brand.

Complimentary activities include windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, yoga and water skiing.

Dining

Five restaurants include Ai KISU, an atmospheric Asian restaurant, which has walls adorned with Japanese art and serves everything from dim sum to Wagyu beef short ribs. There is even a soy sauce sommelier and an open kitchen with straw fire cooking on display.

The main restaurant, Beach Rogue, serves food day and night in a relaxed, poolside setting. The à la carte breakfast options include crab cake and eggs, shakshuka and pecan pancakes. Lazy lunches might be coconut fish ceviche with an island rum cocktail while dinner could be lobster bisque or a Mauritian curry.

Maison LUX* has a European cafe feel – with added splendour and an “island chic” dress code. It’s the kind of place where the sweet treats are garnished with gold leaf. The menu has a wide range of single-origin coffee, teas and cocktails. ICI serves house-made ice creams, gelatos and sorbets and is a hit with children.

Up on the rooftop, you’ll find the hotel’s most attractive bar and restaurant. Bisou (adult-only) features its own infinity pool that overlooks Grand Baie’s shimmering lagoon. There are poolside cabanas and in-pool tables where you can sip cocktails and munch on mezze to the sound of DJ beats. You could continue the evening in Club Ai KISU, the hotel nightclub.

Foodies shouldn’t miss the Food Lab, a chef’s table experience complete with eight cooked-before-your-eyes courses, all paired with wine.

Rooms

Designed by interior guru Kelly Hoppen, every suite, villa, residence, and penthouse has a style that is on point. Think neutral colour palettes, modern artworks, contemporary lighting and big, statement baths. Outside, there are private decks with heated pools and glorious tropical views.

The smallest room category is the Junior Suite, which can still accommodate two adults and one child. Light and airy, they have terrazzo-tiled bathrooms with the hotel’s own-brand toiletries. Rooms have a minimalist feel, and high-tech room control features – plus a whole menu of pillows to choose from for your king-size bed.

For more space and even more of a luxurious feel, residences have two bedrooms; the pool villas have either two or three bedrooms while the penthouse has three. Located in the pretty gardens or right by the beach, these categories also have added perks such as a private butler.

Family

There are options galore for families when it comes to accommodation. Junior Suites can accommodate two adults and one child, but it’s best to splash out on the more spacious villas or residences for extra bedrooms (either two or three). Pool Residences are a good option for families with older children, sleeping up to four adults and two teens in two ensuite bedrooms. The Pool Villas have the same room configuration but are much more spacious.

Larger families, or groups travelling together, should consider the Grand Beach Pool Villa, which is located right on the beach and has three ensuite bedrooms (accommodating up to six adults and two teens). The two Pool Penthouses also sleep up to six adults and two teens and, though slightly smaller, are the most exclusive category. Located behind the resort and accessible via a skywalk, this is the best option for families seeking extra privacy without compromising on style and views.

PLAY children’s club welcomes children from three to 11 years old, keeping them entertained with everything from cooking classes to flower planting. Meanwhile, teens will love the vintage arcade games, water sports and gaming stations at Studio 17, a club for teenagers aged 12 to 17. A spa menu for kids includes mini massages, manicures and haircuts, while family-friendly activities range from catamaran sailing to beach volleyball.

Beach Rogue has an excellent children’s menu with “make your own meal” options that include plenty of veg and protein – think chicken with sweet potatoes and courgette. For toddlers, there is a whole puree menu, while little vegans also get a look in with tacos and Buddha bowls.

Sustainability

Sustainable initiatives include the use of LED lighting, eco-friendly spa products and glass bottles instead of single-use plastics. A “Keen on Green” concept encourages chefs to think about sourcing food thoughtfully and the hotel empowers unemployed women in the community through cooking workshops. Other green initiatives include a food scrap regrowth workshop.

Location

LUX* Grand Baie is located on the north coast of Mauritius, minutes from Grand Baie’s downtown. With its own sheltered beach and lagoon, it feels like a tropical oasis. The international airport is around 90 minutes away by road.
