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.

My wife, daughter and myself celebrated our couple`s 11th wedding anniversary with great style at the always sunny LUX* Grand Gaube. The very devoted Mrs. Annabell who moved heaven on earth to make our trip un-forgetful planned the whole day which was very relaxing and pampering but with lot of super fun activities like champagne sabering, glass bottom boat trip, family message in a bottle hunting and DIY family workshop at the Junk Art Gallery. The Junk Art Gallery in general and the plate painting activity proposed by Mr. Mario, the supervisor, mesmerized my daughter, being a great art fan. Mr. Mario is very passionate about the workshop and the recycling of junk or used materials into art or decoration. Thumbs up to the LUX* group for going into that direction and for LUX* Grand Gaube to care about the environment. For all the nature lovers out there it is my pleasure to share that during our glass bottom boat trip we encountered several turtles in their natural habitat on the reef, proof that the lagoon surrounding LGG is not tainted and full of life. Breakfast by the pool was very pleasant, with a superb view of the Coin de Mire Island, and a variety of food despite the covid-19 restrictions. The five star resort has kept its standard serving the best food that will easily satisfy the most demanding palate. Service was excellent, with very attentive staffs, eager to attend to our every needs. Lunch at Bodrum Blue, the Turkish themed restaurant, was simply out of this world. The food was nothing shy of the best experience we had in any restaurant in Mauritius. Not too familiar with Turkish dishes, we had the pleasant surprise of a marvellous waiter taking on himself to order all of our courses, which turned up to, be an amazing amalgam of flavours. On top of that, the Executive Chef, Mr. Ambros, whom we had the pleasure to meet during our last trip just one month ago, offered us an exquisite cheese platter, which transcended the lunch experience. I could not thank enough the General Manager Mr. Frits Hannenberg for meeting with us despite being a very busy man, and initiating the whole wedding anniversary package tailored to our desires. A big thank you to each and every team member of LGG who worked hand in hand to make our wedding anniversary so memorable and one that will stay engraved in our hearts. LUX* Grand Gaube is what you expect of a five star resort experience but enhanced by LUX* first class service and LUX* first class products, that you cannot experience in other five star hotels across the island. I would gladly recommend anyone who want to spend an extraordinary time and to enjoy one of the best food and service anywhere in Mauritius to tune into LUX* Grand Gaube, either for a stay or simply to spend the day among one of the most wonderful people in the industry and the most luxurious decor akin paradise.

Our stay was nothing short of perfection - in large part thanks to the devoted staff's impeccably friendly and attentive service. Starting from the concierge with the ever-smiling and bubbly Miss Hemlata who attended to our every query; to the restaurant staff at Bodrum Blue and INTI, and the whole staff at breakfast. Mr Werner infectious happy energy brightened up our experience with his wise and entertaining anecdotes and his exceptional skills as a barman - his Virgin Mojito was the best I've tasted (and I've had more than a few) and Miss Ashveena tended to our every need and spared us from deciding what to have from an overwhelmingly tempting menu. At INTI, the waiters Mr Yasser, Mr Anthony and Mr Nilesh were exceptional and very patient with us being slow eaters. They even packed what couldn't finish to allow us to taste every thing we wanted to. And Chef Zaafir's delectably luscious menu was out of this world. We were not accustomed to Peruvian cuisine and were quite lost choosing the food at INTI but we followed Chef Zaafir's suggestions who kindly came to our table to help us out - which ensued with the best food experience I've had in Mauritius. I must also mention the extremely nice supervisors and waiters at the morning breakfast - the whole team was incredible and I wish I had recalled all of their names. They had found out I'm vegan and approached me first to confirm whether I had adequate choices available. Mr Rishi took it upon himself to get vegan pancakes made for me. Subtle touches like these make LGG a top class experience. The staff deserve 7 stars, not 5. Let's not forget Sun at the SPA who is a ray of sunshine and lit up our day every time we crossed paths. THANK YOU all for the beautifully memorable stay. Thank you for the first class service. We'll certainly be back in the very near future. :) Read less
