Dress Code: We might have done away with all the overly fancy fuss and frills of regular luxury resorts, but at LUX* we’ve still got a great sense of style. So although there’s no particular dress code during the day, we do ask you not to wear uncovered swimming attire in the restaurants during breakfast and lunch time. For dinner we kindly request a smart casual dress code in all restaurants.
