Merville Beach Hotel Grand Baie - by LUX*

Costal road, Grand Baie, Mauritius Access

Merville Beach Hotel Grand Baie - by LUX*

The hotel is situated in the north of the island near the seaside village of Grand Baie / Formerly a fishermen village
this place has since turned into one of the trendiest places in Mauritius and is often referred to as the local Riviera /
Spreading along a beautiful beach lined with filao trees Grand Baie rapidly became a popular tourist resort with its
trendy restaurants and fashion shops / The Merville cove may be as popular a mooring site as Grand Baie but the hotel
enjoys the advantage of being located in the outlying area of the village while still being at walking distance from its
centre / Merville Beach is a 3star Superior Category hotel located right in front of a marvellous stretch of pristine sandy beach
and also possesses a charming tropical garden promise of a complete change of scene / Merville Beach guests are
regulars many of them have been returning for numerous years it is no secret for them that the region is one the
sunniest parts of the island enjoying an all year round nice climate

Merville Beach Hotel is situated in the North of Mauritius and is easily accessible from the airport by the MotorWay

Property's Green Action

Lighter, brighter holidays shouldn’t cost the Earth. And with the help of our guests, they don’t have to. At LUX*, we recognise that we have a duty of stewardship over the places we operate and the planet we inhabit, and we strive to achieve complete carbon neutrality in every LUX* resort and hotel. We ask every guest to give €1 a day to offset 100% of the carbon emitted during their stay. It’s a small price to pay, but it has an enormous impact.

Of the money raised, a third goes to carefully vetted offsetting projects in the regions where we operate. The rest is invested into pioneering measures and initiatives that lighten our footprint and improve our energy efficiency. So far, it’s enabled us to bottle our own water on site; to use chemical-free, eco-friendly cleaning agents in housekeeping; to improve our waste management and recycling of everything from water (which irrigates our gardens) to kitchen oil (which is turned into biofuel), and to begin introducing low-energy plasma and LED lighting in every resort.

Rather than wasting paper, we’ve created the tablet-based booking system LUX* Valet to communicate products and services to our guests and, thanks to a motion-sensitive energy-management system, we’ve cut down on wasted energy when rooms are vacant, too.

There’s still more to be done of course, and we will continue to introduce new green technologies and eco initiatives over the coming years. Thanks to our guests, our tread gets lighter every day.


  •  Healthy interiors: use eco-labeled products to clean, paint and floor

Certifications

Travelife

Travelife is an international sustainability certification scheme for hotels that help hotels to improve how they manage their environmental and social impacts, such as:

• Reducing energy and water consumption
• Support local people, businesses and culture
• Human rights, child protection and employee welfare

Green Globe

Green Globe’s International Standard for Sustainable Tourism is a certification scheme that requires hotels to report on their sustainability performance throughout their supply chains. It traces its roots back to the United Nations Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit in 1992, where 182 Heads of State endorsed the Agenda 21 principles of Sustainable Development. The standards are a collection of over 330 compliance indicators that are applied to 41 individual sustainability criteria - these can be divided into four themes:

• Sustainable Management
• Social/Economic
• Cultural Heritage
• Environmental

Clients can calculate their CO2e footprint, the financial cost of that CO2e, and track their performance of energy and water consumption and non-recyclable waste production. The certification is only awarded to members that have a compliance rating of at least 51%. The award can then only be maintained if members continually improve by 3% every year.

We spent two weeks at Merville Beach Hotel. The staff here truly make the hotel what it is, they're all incredibly attentive and welcoming. The food selection is vast and is available throughout most of the day, as are the drinks. There are plenty of drinks included in the all inclusive package/tariff which are marked by an asterisk on the menu. The water sports at the hotel are fantastic as the hotel itself backs out straight on to the beach where they take place. While it's true that the rooms could be updated a little, they're more than adequate for what you need as you'll likely be on the beach for the majority of your stay! The minibar and snacks are replenished each morning and are included on the all inclusive tariff. The hotel is situated just down the road from down and is about a 15 minute walk each way, alternatively the hotel provides bicycles for a cheap price including a lock so you can shop and eat with the bicycle secure.

Amazing hotel. First of all, the staff make this hotel. They are so welcoming, happy and always there to look after you in every way they can. They have such a high attention to detail and will probably know your name after a day or so of being here. The hotel is located right on the beach, with the open terrace bar backing onto it. Food is excellent with plenty of availability throughout the day. For drinks you can go to the bar, beach hut or be served directly from your sunbed, plus there's lots of cocktails available on the all inclusive tarrif too. Watersports are included and the guys that run them are great, super friendly and would highly recommend booking the dolphin trip with them, incredible experience. I also had my wedding here. What an amazing place to be married, right on the white sands in front of the ocean, palm trees and sunset. Marriage formalities were sorted out in a day with help from their wedding coordinator with no issues, highly recommended for people looking to have a Mauritian wedding. I agree with the other reviews that some renovations are due but don't let that put you off, everything that matters works well and won't affect your stay whatsoever. Overall, exceptional service across the whole hotel and will miss being greeted by the staff every day.

Wonderful place though a bit old. Warm welcome. Everyone cares for your comfort and see to it that you have an excellent time there. Back yesterday at the hotel after 1 year. Was just too wonderful. Seems the bungalows were renovated. It was of an irreproachable cleanliness. Impatient to be back again

Great vale for money. Lovely beach. Friendly and helpful staff. The hotel itself is a little tired and in need of a refresh. It is also in a convenient location close to Grand Baie...although the road is a bit dangerous if you like running. They offer bikes and lots of great water sports. The water skiing is free as are the kayaks and sail boats. Very high quality diving operation and DEFINITELY recommend the trip to go swimming with the dolphins!! It was also my wife's birthday and they did a wonderful job with breakfast and a special treat after dinner.

Very decent hotel, 3 * you may call. Staffs were very friendly. Accessible via city bus as well. It's located right on the beach. They have complimentary water sports which includes paddle boat, stand up kayak, water skiing, glass bottom sea boat, snorkeling. There are other activities like beach volleyball, salsa and day specific activity which they offer. Gym, TT available for interested candidates. 😉

Fabulous place to visit. Really friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Great watersports. Everywhere is clean and the food is wonderful. Some rooms are a little tired but a refurbishment program is underway. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Just wonderful. A little tip...change money at the airport as you get the best rate there and 0% commission.

Everything to make your holiday wonderful. You feel like you are a VIP. Everyone is constantly trying to help, without being intrusive. The only thing that cought me by surprise is that men must wear trousers for dinner, but no biggy, went to Grand Baie and bought a pair.

Paradise on earth. We were here for only 4 days and didn't want to leave. The staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for anyone. If I was being very picky the shower ran a bit hot and cold; they could be upgraded with thermostatic valves but everything was so perfect don't let that put you off. I strongly recommend the all inclusive package and a beach front room if you can get one. Thank you everyone at Merville Beach Hotel for a fabulous anniversary holiday. I can't wait to visit again.

Half way through our holiday and we can not fault a thing yes the rooms are a little tired but the setting and the staff make that a trivial thing that makes no difference to the holiday within a couple of days the waiters knew our room number, nothing is too much trouble this may be only rated 3 star but it gives 5 star service and the beach is one of the best in this part of Mauritius.

22 - 29 June 2015... EVERYTHING was just so Amazing, honestly, I can't say that something was better that something else. We enjoyed everything. It was the most wonderful and Amazing experience, we felt so welcome when we arrived and it was a late arrival. They prepared the most delicious food for us. Our room was so beautiful and had a great view. The themed food every night and breakfast every morning was so good, we loved the shows that they offered, I really enjoyed screaming at the top of my lungs as I cheered, it was a lot of fun dancing with the wonderful dancers. I also have to applaud the band and everyone who sang with every show, they have the most beautiful voices. They have really fun activities, I LOVED swimming with the dolphins, it's such a beautiful feeling and something you can't explain, you have to experience it for yourself. The staff and entertainment group were absolutely FANTASTIC , I have never in my life met such humble people, they were sooooo nice and made our holiday even so much harder to forget. It was so nice that most of the staff members remembered us everyday, room 556 (^^,) I LOVE Merville beach and I am so glad that we chose them, it was beyond our expectations, I would go back any day and I would highly recommend them to anyone. I was and am so sad to be back home, I want the amazing feeling that Merville beach and all the staff gave me to last forever. I am so happy that I can be one of those people who can now also say that they are very underrated, I really wish that you could rate them out of 10, because I would have given them an 11 out of 10. I could not complain about anything, In my eyes everything was so perfect, it was just a wonderful experience. We would just like to thank everyone at Merville Beach for making our holiday so special and so memorable. We will definitely visit you again. We rate you 5 STARS.
