Amidst lush tropical gardens, LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas is enveloped by a series of protective coves that open onto a turquoise lagoon whose expanses and depths are conducive to a myriad of nautical activities. Two pristine beaches complete the scene for this voluptuous sanctuary nestled in nature’s playground. Completely re-imagined, this 5-star luxury resort – situated on a secluded peninsula near a northern fishing village and just 10 minutes’ drive from Grand Bay – is a traveller’s paradise where eclectic retro-chic meets barefoot luxury.
Once again, interior designer Kelly Hoppen delivers a fresh take on a vacation lifestyle that’s effortlessly sophisticated, yet blissfully informal. The hotel’s concept of modern luxury denotes a sense of real freedom, with plenty of personal space. All 186 suites and villas have private, furnished, and sea-facing balconies, allowing for endless moments to relish the views. The gardens are dotted with swaying hammocks and secluded shady spots for time alone – or together with a loved one.
When it comes time to eat, LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas will never leave you wanting, with its full palette of eating venues and bars for every taste bud under the sun. Two of these offer no less than ten dining experiences, in addition to a global culinary journey to places such as Peru, Argentina, or Turkey. Sweet or savoury treats are also on offer around the resort to the delight of one and all – from the organic Café LUX* to specialty ice creams at ICI.
As a true destination resort, you will be spoiled with an abundance of activities, whether they invite you to relax in ultimate peace, or to expel your energies in an intensive day of sporting. The sensational LUX* Me Spa is a must during your visit and no one will want to pass by the surplus of water sports to be had in this part of the island. Fitness buffs will love the gym, or if tennis or golf are your preference, sessions and outings will be arranged for your pleasure. Not to be left out, kids will love PLAY Mini Club! Also, some great activities are accessible to teens between 12 to 17 years old.
To top things off, there are two swimming pools – one is heated, and the other one is located in the adults-only, Banyan zone. With an easy living, smile-inducing personality, LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas delivers the best of all worlds, where resort living has never looked, tasted, or felt so good.
