LUX* Belle Mare is not just a resort, its an experience! From when you step into the Mint Tea scented lobby till you fall asleep on their Sleep-tight beds it transforms your world into a magical place. I could list a lot more but I thought I would try and narrow it down to ten reasons I think you should make LUX* Belle Mare your next island holiday destination.
1. The gorgeous beach:
When thinking of an island holiday my first thoughts are usually aimed towards water and beaches as it’s probably going to be the place I spend the most time at. LUX* Belle Mare doesn’t disappoint with its crystal waters in hues of turquoise and blue. The gorgeous beach seems endless with white sand and palm trees where you can relax on loungers or even a hammock if you are in the mood.
2. The restaurants:
LUX* Belle Mare boasts four restaurants that will satisfy all your food cravings. At MIXE you can sit at the swimming pool and eat breakfast or enjoy their sumptuous buffets. Beach Rouge is located right on the beach and at night it glows red and you can relax and listen to the sounds of top DJ’s playing on the decks (take home the beach rouge CD to transport you there every time you listen to it!) They also have a asian restaurant called Duck Laundry with contemporary style dishes and a great ambiance as well as an Indian restaurant Amari by Vineet with a Michelin-star chef.
3. El Jefe:
One of my favourite features at the resort was the Cuban themed food truck called El Jefe. It is based on a movie called Chef and serves delicious burgers, hot dogs, nachos and more! It also has a one of a kind 1933 Rolls-Royce Hooper limousine to add to the vibe and style and it just makes for amazing photo opportunities and a cool story to tell when you are back home.
4. Cafe LUX*:
Something I always miss when I am on holiday is a good cup of coffee but this is something you definitely wont have to worry about at LUX* Belle Mare ( although it might make you miss Cafe LUX* when you get back home!) They have their very own roastery which means amazing coffee all the time.
5. Phone Home:
I absolutely loved the concept of their red phone booths where you can phone family and friends back home for free! It’s special touches like these that makes LUX* stand out from everyone else and that will always keep you coming back for more.
6. Sleep-tight beds:
You might be on holiday but nothing can spoil it more than an uncomfortable bed and a bad nights sleep. This wont happen to you when staying at LUX*. All their rooms feature Sleep-tight beds that will make your nights amazing and have you feeling refreshed for a day of excitement. Is it only me or does everyone go fall down on the bed to test it when you first get to your room?
If you are in the mood to be active and adventurous LUX* Belle Mare has got you sorted. Take a bike ride through the local villages, do some diving or even swim with dolphins. You have so many options that you might not be able to fit them all in!
8. Cinema Paradiso:
In the mood for a movie, why not go to their Cinema Paradiso, an outdoor cinema complete with popcorn and candy floss machines. Relax on a big beanbag right next to the beach and feel the balmy beach air on your skin while watching a movie. Sounds a bit like paradise doesn’t it!?
9. LUX* Me Spa:
Their spa is a relaxing place where you can personalise your experience to suit your needs. They have hot and cold plunge pools, relaxation areas and even a special private area that you can book for a day (or night) of pampering with your other half! You can even take the experience home with you with their signature range of products.
10. The LUX* effect:
The last reason to go to LUX* sums up everything about this resort and is what I like to call “The LUX* Effect”. Everything about this resort draws you in and makes you want to pack up and live there forever. The bright spaces are calming and fits in perfectly with the blue and green from outside. The pool (the largest on the island) draws you outside and special little touches like the ICI icecream bar makes you feel nostalgic and happy all at once. You feel at home but also like you have been transported into a magical place where dreams are possible! At the moment I am listening to one of my favourite tracks from the Beach Rouge album, the smell of Mint tea lingering in the air and all I can think about is when I can experience the LUX* effect again…
