Overview

The highly sophisticated LUX* Grand Gaube opened in December 2018, the latest addition to the high-end LUX* Resorts and Hotels chain. Located along the northern coast of Mauritius, the hotel was created in collaboration with renowned interior designer Kelly Hoppen and has a distinctly retro-chic feel. The wonderful facilities include a state-of-the art gym, a pristine golf driving range complete with concierge service, a barber shop, a hair and nail salon, not to mention the luxurious spa offering lovely treatments and a hammam, sauna and plunge pool.

There are eight room categories ranging from Superior Rooms to the beautiful LUX* Villas. All of the accommodation options come with particularly generous amounts of space and are designed to resemble residential beach villas, combining stylish touches with a comfy and homely atmosphere. All rooms are air conditioned and come with their own balcony or terrace from which guests can enjoy the picturesque Indian Ocean views. Mood lighting is provided, as is high-quality bedding and a 55-inch LED TV; other amenities common to all rooms include a minibar, universal electric sockets and a coffee machine featuring the resort’s very own blends. En-suite bathrooms feature twin vanities, as well as a separate shower and toilet.

The diverse line-up of experiences range from adrenaline-pumping activities such as water skiing, windsurfing, kite surfing, scuba diving and swimming with dolphins to laid-back boat trips and the hire of water toys to splash about with. For those preferring dry land, there are horse riding excursions and energetic beach volleyball matches, along with outdoor painting classes and calming yoga sessions. The helicopter flights which take off from the resort’s own grounds provide breath taking birds-eye views of the island and are a genuine highlight. There are also two sizeable swimming pools and access to two very pleasant and peaceful beaches.

There are various bar and dining options, from casual beachside meals to sophisticated fine dining experiences. There’s a broad range of world cuisines, from Peruvian and Argentinian fare, to Turkish, Creole, Mediterranean and more. There’s a coffee shop where locally sourced beans are roasted on site, a delightful open-air restaurant with live cooking stations, and even a cocktail bar fashioned out of a Citroën H van set underneath an ancient banyan tree.

Children are welcome and there are several suites designed especially for families. Youngsters can take part in many of the activities on offer and child friendly meals are available.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
