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.

One of the most exotic places on earth. Its like visiting Paradise. Rooms were wonderful. Excellent room service. The rooms are located facing the ocean. It feels like you are walking into the sea in the morning. The breakfast spread is enormous. You have all types of cuisines to choose from. There are 4 restaurants on the property. All are fabulous. The staff is extremely courteous. ELena was there to welcome us and show us around the property. We actually missed a day because of our flight delay. However they accomodated us and gave us a meal on the last day. Also the place is extremely Disable friendly. Thank you members of LUX for a wonderful and memorable stay Read less

The location and views of this property, especially the view from the dining area is spectacular. The variety of food, seating and drinks are top class and the staff is so friendly and helpful. Our room on the ground floor, had a lovely view, was comfortable and the bathroom was really something else! The dining options was amazing as the hotel has 3 restaurants. The pools was large and a joy. We enjoyed the ice cream van and cocktail bus as well. We had a scuba dive, water ski and snorkel outing which was really lovely. Read less
