Our stay at LUX* Grande Gaube was perfect, all the way from our warm welcome (with refreshing towels and a coffee to perk us up while staff checked us in) to our reluctant wave goodbye.
Our room was spacious and comfortable, and had everything we needed. The beach was beautiful, and there are plenty of complementary activities available each day, from snorkelling to kayaking to paddle boarding. We also did a day trip to the hotel's private island, where we enjoyed snorkelling at a fantastic preserved site, and a wonderful Mauritian buffet lunch. Each night, the hotel provides live music in the main bar which is a great spot for a nightcap.
The thing that really stands out though is the staff - they are simply amazing, all so friendly and willing to help. A special mention must go out to Nuha, the barista and Winsley, the bartender - they helped make our stay that much more enjoyable.
