Mauritius educational this year, Sure Travel’s social media co-ordinator, Jenna, got to do site inspections at a different Mauritius hotel every day. One of the hotels she was lucky enough to spend a night at, was the stunningly beautiful 5* LUX Le Morne.
Sheltered by the Le Morne peak (a UNESCO World Heritage site) on the quieter south-west coast of the island, the hotel lies along a long stretch of sandy white beach surrounded by lush gardens. After being ushered into the foyer area (with the most magnificent views of the lagoon), we were welcomed with a glass of chilled bubbly – made even more delightful after being offered a quick demonstration of sabrage (opening the champagne bottle with a saber). Rona from Sure Aquabay Travel in Ballito wowed us with her perfect technique!
A very practical aspect was that the ground level rooms have a door that you can lock from the outside – so if you’re heading to the beach or pool you can walk straight out through your terrace instead of walking out the back and all the way around (none of the other hotels we stayed in had this).

A huge thank you to Anatolie, and the LUX Le Morne team, for hosting us in such style and for taking the time to treat us to the true LUX experience.
