Luxury is not just a price tag. It’s about beauty, experiences and moments that you’ll hold onto forever… and at LUX* Belle Mare and LUX* Grand Gaube in Mauritius, you’ll do just that, and more. There are beach resorts and then there’s LUX*. LUX* Belle Mare is situated on the east coast of Mauritius, in Belle Mare, roughly an hour’s drive from the airport. The resort is set on the island’s widest stretch of beach and, in my opinion, home to one of the most beautiful pearly white beaches...

It's that time of year again, and most of us (okay, well we do) tend to clear out and tidy up our homes around the end of the year, getting rid of unwanted items, and also doing a bit of home decorating too.

Roald Dahl's classic hit the stage last month at the Teatro theatre, Montecasino and we had the pleasure of experiencing the magic first hand and dining at one of Monte's fabulous restaurants, Lima Tapas Bar.

Focusing their attention on Latin, American cuisine, their dishes are inspired by food served during the great Andean civilisations of South America.

Can we just have a moment right here to say that we are over the moon obsessed. One of our fave foods (peanut butter) combined with one of our fave nougat brands, Sally Williams makes for happy days indeed! The memory of taking a bite out of mom’s delicious peanut butter and jam sandwich or sneaking a teaspoon of peanut butter right out of the jar (we all do it, don't we?) peanut butter is a taste that is so filled with childhood nostalgia and evokes the indulgent memories...
