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.

A COVID-19 safe hotel that ticks every single box for an incredible family holiday. From Caroline and Hemlata at the front desk who will assist you in anyway, even before you travel to the lovely lady at the coffee shop. To Veer the most friendly guy on the beach, everyone was so happy and helpful to ensure we had everything we needed. A huge shout out to the amazing staff at the kids club Anousha, Emma, Natasha, Deepa and the entertainment team Anderson & Eddy they made our son feel so welcome and entertained with multiple activities every day. As well as offering a babysitting service in the evenings which we used a couple of times over our trip. I also have to mention the incredible staff in the restaurants Rishi, Dhiren, Ashwin, Veemal & Jean Christian who over our trip made the experience that much better by ensuring all our tastes were catered for while providing an incredible service for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We also attended the wine tasting experience with the sommelier Atish who was very informative and then on hand to ask questions about the extensive wine list throughout our stay. Chef Dominic and the Hotel Manager Sandeep made themselves very accessible for all guests and we loved how highly they spoke about their staff and made sure not only the guests were safe but also their teams. Then on top of this the hotel itself which was always very clean with the perfect view - our 2nd time returning to this hotel and wont be our last. Read less

This was my first time at Lux Grand Gaube & to my surprise it was an awesome experience compared to Lux Belle Mare. We spent 2 nights there for Chinese New Year (Feb 2021). Check-in was fast and easy as we have provided all our details in advance. The staffs were very welcoming and so friendly. We booked the Ocean view Suite which was on the 3rd floor...luckily there are lifts available. The room was spacious with a huge balcony and awesome view (See photos attached). The hotel was very crowded and at dinner time expect to queue up for food as the buffet at main restaurant is quite small for the amount of guests. The service and food on the other hand were great! The waiters were all so friendly and very helpful. After dinner, there was a live band and the atmosphere was very pleasant. The dance floor was packed and everyone had a great time! There are 2 pools in the hotel but the main pool is big enough. At 4pm they served crepes by the pool which was awesome...the kids loved it! The waiters will come by several times to check if we wanted more crepes/anything to drink or if we needed more towels...service was top notch! We were there on the 14th Feb and we all got a rose in our room and at dinner time, which I think was very thoughtful. Overall stay was very pleasant and enjoyable! Highly recommend this hotel and will def go back if we have the chance! Read less

We had a second visit at Lux Grand Gaube! The place is stunning and the staff is really nice especially Mr Reedoo from the beach service who's really caring: making us feel welcomed and always checking on us whenever he sees us. He also made a beautiful decor on the beach for my wife's birthday the first time and has nice ideas for pictures. Thanks to him, the pic reached more than 2300 likes on Instagram ! Mrs Nadège from the breakfast team is a sweet and caring lady. We loved that some of the spa's amenities are free and spent a nice time there. The food is yummy with a large variety in the buffet and we love the hand made ice creams, the cherry one is so delicious ! The first time there was hand made fresh passion juice which was not available this time but we hope we'll get next time. We enjoy the water activities also. Thank you Lux Grand Gaube ! Hope to see you soon ! Read less

Any of those looking to tie the knot and looking for a place to do it, look no further Lux Grand Gaube has it all! My wife and I were treated like royalty with special mention Mr Reedoo the beach manager who took care of us every single day with every single one of our requests resolved right there and then. He made sure to treat us and every other guest as if we were family. last but not least Mr. Nicolas Cretin the Food and Beverage manager went above and beyond to cater for every single one of our wedding requests from the exact minute we would like to have dinner served to our cakeage inquiries. He made us feel like Rockstar's, supplying us with complimentary bottles of champagne and appetizers to follow. If I could recommend two individuals that are a must to deal with if you have any issues/ queries/ concerns would be these two superhumans. Thanks again team Lux and see you soon Read less
