Wishes Come True At LUX* Resorts & Hotels

As the world recovers from months of anxiety and isolation, LUX* Resorts & Hotels shares the joy of hope and positivity to celebrate the gradual return of luxury travel.   An unconventional approach to creating lifelong memories, LUX* Resorts & Hotels delivers surprising experiences through its Reasons To Go signatures at each resort.  Delightful pop up treats add unexpected moments of wonder that differentiate every visit.  The Tree Of Wishes is one of 17 distinctive Reasons To Go LUX*.

At every LUX* Resorts & Hotels, a specially commissioned Tree of Wishes is installed in a place of honour.  Each guest is invited to make a wish by tying a ribbon or tag on the enchanting branches of the tree at their own private time during the stay.  Local artisans and in-house creative talents draw inspiration from native landscape and culture to design each Tree of Wishes using upcycled materials.  In a symbolic ceremony at the end of the year, a lucky person’s wish will be picked to win a free LUX* Resorts & Hotels holiday.

During these unprecedented times, the teams at LUX* Resorts & Hotels share their heartwarming stories of guests whose wishes have come true.   Below are some inspirations to make a wish on your next visit.

LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas, Mauritius

It was my dream to be a singer, I wrote my wish and attached it on the Tree of Wishes during my first stay at LUX* Belle Mare in 2016. Shortly after my return home, I was invited for a casting and to my great surprise, I was selected by the jury. This great opportunity opened the door to record my first single. I have already given concerts on Reunion Island, Paris, Guadeloupe and Mauritius. I was so delighted that I returned to LUX* Belle Mare in 2019 to shoot my 1st music video. The place and the people who worked here are so close to my heart. Thank you very, very much!

LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas, Mauritius

We had our honeymoon here in 2015 and we wished for a happy, healthy baby….our son had just turned 4 and we told him about the Tree of Wishes. Apart from a Corona cure, it would be to bring him to LUX* Grand Gaube to see the magical tree.

LUX* Le Morne Resort, Mauritius

During our honeymoon in June 2016 at LUX* Le Morne, we hung the wish of “completing our family” by welcoming our first child. Today, we are the happy parents of a precious two year old boy. My husband and I are taking the opportunity of the confinement to spend quality time and creating endless family memories with our son.

LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas, Maldives

Back in September 2019, during our honeymoon at LUX* South Ari Atoll, we visited the Tree of Wishes and penned down one wish apart from health and happiness; to build a family. As we put the ribbon in the tree, we both felt something swirling through our hearts and it was so special. Two months later it finally happened. We are now expecting our baby boy in October and the joy is indescribable. Still to this day, I sometimes think of that special ribbon, swaying in the banyan tree far, far away.

Tree of Wishes at LUX* Resorts & Hotels are reminiscent of Japan’s ancient Tanabata festival wishing trees and Brazil’s pretty Bonfim wish ribbons.  The first enchanting creation was at LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas featuring the artist’s impression of a baobab, the indigenous chunky-trunked African adansonia also known as the ‘tree of life’.  LUX* Le Morne Resort’s Tree of Wishes followed with a lovingly constructed artwork made from metal and recycled materials by the resort’s very own Executive Chef.  LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas and LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas celebrate their local landscape with a little magic sprinkled on native trees in their lush, natural grounds, such as the flowering Flamboyant.

LUX* Resorts & Hotels have many hallmarks that set these luxurious destinations apart from the competition.  The Tree of Wishes is just one of the Reasons To Go LUX*.  Here are some of the other unique surprises and services that guests can expect: LUX* Me spa for wellness treats, Phone Home for complimentary calls back to the guest’s home country in a  traditional telephone booth, Mamma Aroma bath amenities created exclusively for LUX* Resorts & Hotels, Café LUX* featuring home-roasted coffee beans and handcrafted specialty coffees and healthy drinks, carefully curated list of Scrucap wines from France, Junk Art Gallery to turn recycled items into works of art, Cake Boss to develop junior pastry chefs at PLAY kids club, Message In A Bottle for guests to hunt for gifts each morning and Cinema Paradiso for movie screenings at exotic locations complete with favourite snacks, to name a few.
