The second you step in the LUX airport lounge your holiday begins as you’ll be greeted with a cup of freshly made LUX coffee, roasted on-site at the resort, provided with an assortment of snacks and nibbles to tide you over while waiting for the seaplane. Once you arrive at the resort, the service doesn’t stop as you’ll notice a classic red telephone box – go ahead and call anyone you want, anywhere in the world. It’s on LUX. Up next is a scavenger hunt, head to the beach and find your message in a bottle and you could win a complimentary spa treatment, a candle-lit dinner, or a watersports adventure. Their creativity and commitment to providing unique experiences are some of the reasons why we love this resort. One last thing, make sure you to use the bathroom at the East Bar, please. No questions asked. Just go and see for yourself.
