A luxury five star deluxe hotel in Mauritius, shining with the vibrant energy and hospitality of authentic island life. Proudly situated in the quaint seaside village of Belle Mare on the east coast of Mauritius, against a backdrop of the Indian Ocean LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas welcome you with a different approach to island life.
Enjoy the view of pristine white beaches and a sparkling lagoon from your traditionally thatched villa or suite at this exceptional hotel in Mauritius. Re-designed by international designer Kelly Hoppen, the resort is a modern take on traditional Mauritian hospitality, with a discreet yet vibrant LUX* touch.
A statement swimming pool, one of the islands largest, 2000 m2 with a separate area for children, is at the heart of this 5-star resort as you wander past various tantalising restaurants. Take a dip or be tempted by a fresh home-made ice cream.
The spa is a knockout too with highly qualified therapists who want you to leave feeling your best whether through treatments, yoga or Tai Chi. And we haven’t even mentioned that the coastline feels as though you have it yourselves: crystal-clear water, with a turquoise glint and sand as soft and white as you’ll ever know.
LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas lies on the east coast of Mauritius with beautiful beaches overlooking the Indian Ocean. Just a short drive from the hotel, the town of Centre de Flacq hosts a vibrant market with deliciously authentic tastes to savor. Regular boat tours from the nearby coastal village of Trou d’Eau Douce offer plenty of prime scuba diving opportunities. Back on dry land, there are several world-class golf courses nearby.

What’s better than staying somewhere that was conceived with the sole purpose of giving you a good night’s sleep and relaxation? Nothing, we think, is better than our beautifully-designed rooms and suites. Ingeniously designed to be meditative and escapist, they owe their fresh, breezy design to the crisp linens, the woven rugs, the white shutters, the stunning wallpaper, the standalone matte white bathtubs and tropical showers, and the sundeck, that in-between space between the beach and your bedroom.

Constance Belle Mare Plage The Legend
‘The Legend’, designed by South African champion, Hugh Baiocchi, is the crowning achievement of Constance Belle Mare Plage. Each hole has its own distinctive characteristics, with many a surprise in store. Superb fairways are laid-out in the heart of an indigenous forest, culminating in perfect greens built to USPGA specifications. In an effort to provide the quintessential golfing location, all 18 greens were rebuilt using Tif Dwarf grasses to ensure a perfect surface. Time has also been taken to enhance the natural beauty of the site. Teeing off from the 17th hole (par 3) is a feast for the eyes and a test for the nerves.
The second Belle Mare Plage Championship Golf Course, designed by Rodney Wright and Peter Allis opened in November 2002. This 18-hole Links course was conceived as a result of the success and demands encountered by Hotels Constance’s first course, ‘The Legend’. Sitting beneath the clubhouse which faces the setting sun, the course measures 5,942 m and is a Par 71. Equipped with a practice fairway, this 18-hole course is set in a location which seems to have been naturally created for the purpose of an exciting days golfing.
Golf du Château

Situated between the mountains and the sea in an undulating landscape interspersed with lakes, streams and tropical trees, this Par 72 championship course is both technically challenging and varied. The architects have elegantly integrated the two water courses that cross Golf du Château creating small lakes which enhance the demands made on technique, yet fully respecting the harmony and tranquillity of the surroundings. They have also integrated the magnificent Château of Bel Ombre and its gardens into the design of the golf course.
“Golf du Château” consists of: two 9-hole courses.9 hole outside course 3,210m, 9 hole inside course is 3,297m, 3 by 3 vary from 140m to 200m, 4 by 4 from 320m to 430m, 4 by 5 from 490m to 520m.

This 9-hole gem is unique to Mauritius as Le Saint Géran is the only course employing local grass on the fairways and greens. The local grass not only accentuates the exotic feel of the place but it also creates a challenge as it is thick and spongy, giving the ball some serious friction to overcome. Armies of coconut and palm trees frame the course with the shimmering azure of the Indian Ocean offering an eye-catching backdrop. There are a number of natural waterways strategically placed around the course creating a picturesque challenge for pros and beginners alike. Guests can also play 18 holes on Le Saint Géran with different departures.
