LUX* Grand Gaube

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Completely renovated in 2017, this innovative resort has been designed by Kelly Hoppen and delivers an eclectic mix of effortless sophistication and relaxed informality, as well as signature LUX* touches. In a peaceful location, rooms overlook the triple-bay beaches and calm lagoon. There are beautiful gardens to wander in; stopping awhile to lounge on beanbags and hammocks dotted beneath coconut, banyan and filao trees. There are land and water sports galore, plus a world-class golf course nearby and bikes for exploring tropical hillsides or the local markets and village of Cap Malheureux. The LUX* Me Spa is a true haven, offering a range of indulgent treatments as well as yoga and dynamic exercise classes. Dining-wise, you’ll be spoilt for choice, with delicious island-inspired and international dishes. Chat to the chef and watch your meal being created at The Palm Court, savour the cultures of Peru and Argentina at INTI and visit Under the Banyan for mouthwatering burgers, wood-smoked meats and inventive cocktails at the French Kiss Bar.

If you ever feel the need to get away and relax stress free - Lux Grand Gaube is the go-to place. We spent one night last month there and the staffs are so welcoming and ensured that my sister and I were well looked after. The hotel is amazing, starting with the heated pool to the themed live cooking dinner and the spacious rooms with an amazing blue sea view. Special mention to Mrs Annabelle Brelu-Brelu, the Assistant Front office Manager who welcomed us warmly and looked after us from the day we checked in till we checked out with her sunshine personality. Special thanks also to Mr Nicolas Cretin, the F&B Manager with all his special attention to detail touches with regards to our food preferences which really made the difference for us. The food was amazing - I highly recommend the Crab burger from BB's Shack, all the Turkish food from Bodrum Blue restaurant and the famous Churos from INDI restaurant. Also the heated pool was awesome! Looking forward to another stay there soon! :) Read less
