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.

Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
Fiona and Kevin
