LUX* RESORTS & HOTELS NEW FLAGSHIP PROPERTY WILL OFFER SOPHISTICATED BEACHSIDE LIVING FOR THE MODERN, DISCERNING TRAVELLER.
The highly anticipated LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences will open on 1 November 2021, unveiling a
new generation of 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, the elegant hideaway will be nestled in the Grand Baie lagoon overlooking emerald-blue waters and white sandy beaches.
“The vision for LUX* Grand Baie has been in my mind for some time, and I have been determined to bring all my years of experience in resorts around the world to a crescendo in this magnificent property. Grand Baie is the crown jewel of Mauritius and the mandate from the outset was simple: create the finest luxury resort in the Indian Ocean. In the process, it has become the flagship for LUX* Resorts & Hotels and our first greenfield project in Mauritius. The essentials had to be perfect – comfort, warm, welcoming and inviting. Exciting, creative and full of LUX* soul. That ‘soul’ comes from our people, who in Mauritius are magical” said Paul Jones, chief executive officer of The Lux Collective.
ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN
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. “I’m fascinated by the mechanics of sailboats: the interrelationship between the hull and the sea, the sails and wind, and man with nature, which conjures an image of elegance. I have channelled this elegance into the architecture of LUX* Grand Baie Resort & Residences” said Jean-Francois.
Design maestro, Kelly Hoppen CBE, has created the interiors that encapsulate the beauty of the land and the Indian Ocean with voluminous spaces symbolising ‘a breath of fresh air’. “From the moment you enter the resort, you will be met with incredible scale and a multitude of exquisite neutral and natural textures and tones which exude sophistication and comfort. Everything is orchestrated to entice guests to fall into an experience of relaxation and luxury,” said Kelly.
