The five-star LUX* Grand Gaube, surrounded by coves and lagoons, is situated on a secluded peninsula on Mauritius’s beautiful north coast near the fishing village of Grand Gaube. World-renowned designer Kelly Hoppen was responsible for the decor, which delivers an eclectic retro-chic lifestyle that’s effortlessly sophisticated, yet blissfully informal.

Fly there courtesy of Air Mauritius, which is acclaimed for its warm and generous service. Enjoy Indian Ocean views and LUX* hospitality in your generously proportioned room. Relax in the sun at your choice of two beaches and two swimming pools. Take a walk through the lush tropical gardens. It’s all about leisure at LUX* Grand Gaube and there are numerous activities to enjoy, both on land and water.

Dining options include live cooking stations at the Palm Court, Peruvian and Argentinian cuisine at INTI, authentic Creole flavours at Banyan and a Turkish twist at Bodrum Blue. There’s also the Beach Rouge dining club for more casual meals. After dinner, watch a movie under the stars at the resort’s alfresco Cinema Paradiso.
LUX* Grand Gaube has everything a luxury retreat requires and more.
