We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Lux Le Morne. We had an absolutely wonderful time - there are so many positive things that I can say about our stay.
From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were really impressed with the hotel, the location and most of all, the amazing staff. The hotel is located right on the beach - all rooms are less that 100 steps from the water. We stayed there for 12 nights and didn't want to leave at the end of our stay. The staff at the boat house (at the end of the beach) were really helpful with recommending water based activities and took the safety of guests very seriously. To be honest we spent most of our time by the pool, on the beach or in one of the restaurants - we were really looking forward to a relaxing holiday so we didn't plan on doing too much, and I can honestly say, I have never felt so relaxed in my whole life!
I have read many of the reviews on trip advisor before and I must admit that I was concerned that I had read quite a few negative reviews about the food. However, I really didn't need to worry as we were so impressed with the choice and quality of food at the hotel. Breakfast included freshly made pancakes, waffles, French toast, a selection of pastures, cereals, toast, different breads for toasting, eggs cooked any way you like them, cold meats and cheeses, yoghurt and so much more. The buffets in the kitchen restaurant (main restaurant) each evening were really delicious - I would particularly recommend the Mauritian evening, the Mediterranean buffet and the bistro buffet. The Beach restaurant also serves delicious food - we particularly likes the fish on a skewer and the pizzas.
We loved the spa. My husband isn't a huge fan of massages but he was really impressed with the Island style massage - Jenny did a wonderful job. Our friends are visiting there in a few weeks and we have told them they must have a massage there - it's especially good if you like a firm massage!
We visited in their winter, but for us, the weather was great - we did have a few showers but it brightened up in the afternoon and wasn't uncomfortably hot.
The rooms were really spacious and clean. The house keeping staff did a wonderful job in tidying each morning, and turning down in the evenings. The Lux shampoo and shower gel was a really nice touch, as were the slippers placed by the bed in the evenings.
Although we didn't use it (sadly forgot my trainers!!), the gym was really well resourced and relatively busy as we walked past it on the way to dinner!
We chose to go all inclusive and this was definitely the best option. It meant we could enjoy a range of food and drinks without having to worry about spending more than we should.
We chose to go swimming with dolphins - a really amazing experience and a day trip on a catamaran which included seeing the dolphins and snorkelling. Apart from that, we spent the rest of our time in the hotel.
Finally, I just wanted to say how impressed we were with the staff at the hotel. Moonesh (on the reception) particularly stood out for us. Nothing was too much trouble and he was incredibly kind and professional at all times. We also thought very highly of the staff in the restaurants, especially Alvin (from the Kitchen), Shiva (from the boat house), Preetam (from the kitchen) and many, many more.
We were so impressed with the attitude of all staff - everyone was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely return for another holiday!
