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 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, while 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 modern kitchens, connected by bridge to the main resort. All rooms overlook the resort’s pristine sheltered beach and lagoon, while 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 (420 square metres) 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. Ai KISU (meaning ‘flame’ in Japanese) will offer best-in-class Asian cuisine in a lively atmosphere, while its accompanying nightclub features sleek interiors and sets from international DJs and local musicians alike.
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 30-metre 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.
