Mark Twain once wrote that “Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius”. And it’s true: sapphire waters, powder-white beaches and wonderful nature.
Opening on 1 November 2021, the magnificent LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences is a boutique-style resort for the modern, discerning traveller.
Located in the north of Mauritius known for its lively beachside cafes, bars and artisanal local crafts, this elegant hideaway is nestled in the Grand Baie lagoon, the crown jewel of Mauritius, overlooking emerald-blue waters and white sandy beaches.
Jean-Francois Adam, the Mauritius-based architect who has spearheaded the design of the property, has been inspired by a childhood spent on the very beach the resort is set on, and observing sailing boat architecture. The result is a design concept that champions indoor-outdoor living and ‘purity’ by working in harmony with the natural surroundings.
The architecture breaks away from the traditional mould in Mauritius whilst honouring the island’s raw materials.
At LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences each suite, villa, residence and penthouse are a labour of love of interior designer Kelly Hoppen, resulting in the pinnacle of luxury and comfort. Each is made to feel like a designer’s holiday home in the tropics.
Settle in, relax, sunbathe, host some friends for a day party in your penthouse, take a dip in your villa pool, or just do nothing— make yourself at home.

Offering laid-back dining from morning to night, Beach Rouge – LUX* Resorts & Hotels’ signature beach club concept – sits on the water’s edge and will serve fresh, locally-sourced cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
