Mauritius Day 2, 4 & 6 - LUX* Le Morne resort

Day 2, 4, 6 was spent lazing at the hotel n checking out the hotel surroundings.This hotel is absolutely beautiful...just like in the brochure. The design and landscaping are all thoughtfuly implemented. Even though they have lotsa guests you still feel it at all accept at breakfast time when everyone gathers there to dine. They have one infinity pool at the lobby, two other pools with pool bars and a 600m of immaculately kept beach with fabulous turquoise lagoon. The water is crystal clear 100 marks but sand is not as perfectly white and powdery fine as Maldive's beaches..but it is definitely close. The presence of the UNESCO landmark Le Morne mountain makes the location hard to beat.

As it is located in the south west, you get to enjoy scenic sunset every single day...

Nice touches of thoughtfulness everywhere..

Some pics of their restaurants & their food..

The Food - We were on the half board meal plan and had to pay for water every meal. We already knew that so no complains here. Food at the Main restaurant was very good, lots of selections for breakfast. For dinner we have a choice of dining at the Main restaurant or at the Nipa (Thai) or the Beach (Mediterranean) restaurant. The Main restaurant has themed buffets 3 nights per week (Bistro, Mauritian or Mediterranean buffet) and set menu on other nights. The spread for buffet was good, the desserts variety were pretty impressive. Set menu has a selection of starter, mains and dessert (4-5 choices to choose from), the menu changes everyday. We dined at the main restaurant most nights accept for two nights we made reservation to eat at the Nipa. Food at the Nipa was a couple of hits and misses, the Green curry and Tom Yum soup was very good while the Phad thai was a tad too sweet, and it was served with a slice if lemon instead of the usual lime. Thai desserts were overly sweet, I learnt the lesson and ordered ice cream for my second visit and I didn't regret it. 


Service was good overall. Some staffs don't speak english too well and could lead to misunderstanding sometimes. Nevertheless, it was still one of the best service we have experienced on our travels.

Our overall experience at this hotel was very good and would return to the same hotel in a heart beat if we ever visit Le Morne again.
