The highly anticipated LUX * Grand Baie Resort & Residences will open its doors on November 1, 2021 and will unveil a new iconic hotel that embodies the new generation of luxury to appeal to discerning travelers. Located in the north of Mauritius, known for its cafes, bars and local artisans, this elegant resort overlooks the Grand Baie lagoon, its emerald blue waters and white sandy beaches.
“The vision of LUX * Grand Baie had been on my mind for some time and I was determined to use my experience at resorts around the world to open this magnificent hotel. Grand Baie is the jewel of Mauritius and, from the start, the mission was simple: to create the most beautiful luxury hotel establishment in the Indian Ocean. In doing so, it has become the flagship hotel of LUX * Resorts & Hotels and our first construction project in Mauritius.
The essentials had to be perfect: comfort, warmth, welcome and friendliness. The soul of LUX * is radiant in both style and service, thanks to the Mauritian team that promises to make the experience magical,” said Paul Jones, Chairman and CEO of The Lux Collective.
Jean-François Adam, the Mauritian architect who led the design of the establishment, was inspired by a childhood spent on the beach observing the architecture of boats. The result is a design concept that promotes interior-exterior life and “purity” by working in harmony with nature. The architecture breaks with the traditional codes of Mauritius while paying homage to the raw materials of the island. “I am fascinated by the mechanics of sailboats: the relationship between the hull and the sea, the sails and the wind, man and nature, which evokes a sophisticated image.
I transposed this into the architecture of LUX * Grand Baie Resort & Residences,” explained Jean-François. British design star Kelly Hoppen has infused the hotel’s interiors with the spirit of the Mauritian lifestyle, the beauty of the land and the Indian Ocean with spacious and open rooms to circulate air and light. “As soon as you enter, you will be greeted by an incredible array of colors, textures and neutral and natural tones, furnished with refinement. The place is a real invitation to live a relaxing and luxurious experience,” said Kelly.
