Lukaku scored 15 times in 28 appearances for Everton last season.
He has been the subject of transfer rumours since his move from Chelsea, but Martinez said Lukaku would remain at Goodison Park for the long-term.
Everton’s form in the second half of the season has been particularly poor.
They have scored a league-low 10 goals in their last 10 games.
Everton have lost two of their last three games, their last win coming in the 1-1 draw with Swansea on Saturday.
Martinez believes the club’s performance in the last six games was poor, with Everton conceding 17 goals in the process.
He said: “The result was disappointing.
I don’t know how we got back into that game. “
When you go to the end of a season you have to have a little bit of luck, it’s not easy.”
I don’t know how we got back into that game.
It was a bit unlucky for us and a bit disappointing for our fans.
“I think that we have a few players who have a bit of a break.
If they can come back they’ll come back, they’ve got to recover and it’s a bit unfortunate for the team.”
