We've just had the most amazing 12 Days at the LUX Grand Gaube celebrating a Birthday with our adult children and their partners. We flew direct from Perth & two direct from London. Our experience at the Lux was far beyond expectations from the time we arrived to the time we departed. The service from all the staff in all areas of the hotel was excellent, always smiling, friendly, extremely efficient and very accommodating. We had a Junior suite and two deluxe rooms at the far end of the hotel, facing the ocean in the second cove which were absolutely delightful,clean and spacious, well worth the money. The food was exceptional ! whether you were at the restaurants, bar or buffet. We had all inclusive which was great value. Our favourite would have to be The Beach, the menu there was amazing with a variety of cuisines and close to our rooms. One evening our children organised with the hotel staff to have our dinner set up (for 6 people) on our patio under the stars by candle light as a surprise! and wow! what a fantastic job they did! it was beautiful, better than any Michelin Star restaurant. Thank you to all involved. The grounds are beautifully manicured and all the staff smartly dressed. The water sports (free and paying) are great, the water a little cold this time of the year but we were very lucky with the weather for 11 of 12 days with temperatures during the day 27-29degs C. Cooler in the evening. We had 2 cocktail evenings with entertainment whilst we were there, lots of fun. The Spa is a definite must do !
The Lux is a little isolated, but that's what we wanted for a holiday, to relax and enjoy the family, which we did. We had two whole days sightseeing and experiencing many of the main attractions (the hotel even made up Picnic baskets for us to take - unbelievably great food) which was fun but we were very happy to get back to the hotel and enjoy our own little piece of paradise ! Going this time of the year was also good as it wasn't crowded and no queues to wait in.
Mauritius is a beautiful Island with beautiful friendly people, it will definitely be a holiday destination again and definitely at the Lux Grand Gaube.
