Mauritius with Orlebar Brown

Orlebar Brown & LUX* Resorts

I’m very lucky with my work that I get to travel to some incredible places and meet amazing people and experience new cultures. I recently got to travel to Mauritius, my first time to visit this island in the Indian Ocean. It's fair to say, it’s pretty idyllic.

Orlebar Brown recently launched a brand new collection with LUX* Resorts & Hotels, with exclusively-designed shorts and pop-up boutiques in select Indian Ocean locations. To showcase the new collaboration, they invited me to escape the cold and join them on a tropical retreat to Mauritius, hosted by Adam Brown, founder of Orlebar Brown.

The icing on the cake? We staying at Mauritius' most exclusive resort - the newly relaunched LUX* Grand Gaube. Situated on the northern coast of the island and surrounded by white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, the resort recently saw a whole redesign by acclaimed interior designer Kelly Hoppen MBE. 

We were one of the first to see it and you'll be provided with our hero styles and collaboration shorts to ensure you’re looking your best on and off the beach each day. 

It really was an epic experience of luxury island living and we enjoyed an action-packed itinerary of watersports, rum tasting and indulging in the resort's new restaurant and bar concepts, from Peruvian and Turkish to local Creole cuisines.
