LUX* RESORTS & HOTELS TAKES CENTER STAGE IN CHINESE SUMMER COMEDY BLOCKBUSTER ‘THE BREAK-UP GURU’
July 9, 2014 Floreal, Mauritius
Chinese A-List actor Deng Chao (邓超)’s directorial debut The Break-Up Guru (分手大师) hits China’s cinema this month with the opening scenes of the movie shot on location in the tranquil and elegant honeymoon beach destination of LUX* Le Morne, Mauritius.
Set on the sunset side of Mauritius, the resort of LUX* Le Morne, Mauritius, poised at the very edge of the Indian Ocean in the shadow of the majestic Le Morne Peak, is the setting for the beginning of the movie that is set to be one of the biggest hits of the summer in China. Shot throughout the resort that is famed for being a wedding and honeymoon destination due to its quiet, calm and secluded setting in Mauritius, The Break-Up Guru’s opening 10 minutes are all on the lush island of Mauritius.
Produced by Enlight Pictures from China, The Break-Up Guru is a return to romantic comedies following the success of the production company’s summer 2012 hit Lost in Thailand (泰囧).
The movie centers on Mei Yuangui, played by Deng Chao himself, as a professional “Breakup Guru”. He has invented a painless breakup method that involves no complications for couples in distress and is 100 percent reliable. Having helped over 2,000 couples successfully breakup or divorce, Mei Yuangui has become the God of breakups and customers continuously flock to him for his expertise. But when he receives a special request from a woman named Ye Xiaochun (played by rising star Yang Mi (杨幂)) it might possibly be his toughest assignment yet.
LUX* Le Morne, Mauritius was seen as an ideal location to shoot the movie and showcase the best of Mauritius due to the resort’s stunning backdrop and picturesque setting among the vast green gardens. Poised on the Indian Ocean and protected from trade winds by the rugged Le Morne Peninsula, the resort is set among delightfully landscaped gardens, with four pools, a spa and a selection of restaurants and bars. Located on the quieter side of the island, LUX* Le Morne enchants with its magnificent beach and sunset views, secluded seating areas and elegant, romantic ambience.
The look and feel of LUX* Le Morne, Mauritius is duplicated in the individual styles of all three of LUX* Resorts & Hotels in Mauritius - all of which are growing in popularity with young Chinese couples for weddings, wedding photo-shoots and honeymoons. The free, fresh and light approach that LUX* Resorts & Hotels has at the center of each property has struck a chord with Chinese couples looking for an adventure that can make you leave feeling invigorated and inspired. Now with direct flights from Beijing and Shanghai with Air Mauritius and no visas for Chinese nationals, Mauritius is emerging as one of 2014’s most exciting island destinations.
