Architect Jean-Francois Adam’s vision of contemporary yet timeless Indian Ocean living: LUX* Grand Gaube in Mauritius

LUX* Grand Gaube has re-opened this month already welcoming its first guests.

All rooms, suites and villas of the newly re-opened LUX* Grand Gaube Mauritius offer stunning seaviews and airy verandas, some with outdoor baths or sundecks edged by the resort’s private cove. Fitted with LUX* Sleeptight mattresses and highest quality refined Egyptian cotton linens, every room has been intended for extreme comfort and the best night’s sleep. Huge doors treat the living spaces to lots of natural light and the generous dressing space enhances the loft-style feel.

LUX* believes luxury today should mean a sense of freedom and personal space; its reimagined resort has innovation at its core, along with four new Reasons to Go LUX* – Padel Tennis, the G&T 100 Club, Veggie Heaven and Beach Bento -all await to creatively entertain guests, along with the celebrated Café LUX*, ICI, Phone Home, Cinema Paradiso, Scrucap, Mama Aroma, Message in a Bottle, Phone Home, LUX* Me, Tree of Wishes, Tread Lightly, Junk Art Gallery, Aperitivo, Panama Hat, Photofanatics and Wanderlust Library.

The Mauritius resort offers a spacious lobby, where the guests will be greeted by a staggering vista of a sparkling ocean and the photogenic Flat Island on the horizon. The suites feature delightful simple-yet-refined design style, and considered comfort, with inspired tropical touches. South African interior designer Kelly Hoppen has genuinely worked her magic, making guests feel at home while transported to an extraordinary world true to architect Jean- Francois Adam’s vision of contemporary yet timeless Indian Ocean living.

Six restaurants, seven bars – many of which are totally unique styles to Mauritius. Guests will be able to enjoy sunshine or starlight through the glazed ceilings of Palm Court Restaurant and feel the gentle lagoon breeze.

LUX* Grand Gaube is the first resort in Mauritius to have an Essie nail bar, and also an authentic barber’s shop: Murdock’s of London and its signature wet shave and beard and moustache trimming service in style. A specialised health programme is also available thanks to Kamran Bedi of Mind Body Method, an NLP master practitioner (neuro-linguistic programming), hypnotherapist, meditation teacher and Pilates instructor. Guided meditation and stretch-based classes assist the body in releasing tension, barre-style workouts and a new Pilates practice, Movement On The Roller, works on the whole body, promoting balance and mindfulness.

The Wellness area is a haven for those needing to relax or be beautified – or tone up with a workout or next-gen fitness. Aromatherapy experiences await with LUX* Me’s therapies from Shirley Page. The exclusive Cellulight body oil treatment and the Enlightened Woman treatment rebalance natural rhythms and soothe mothers-to-be. Carita Haute Beauté in Paris brings its prestigious high-performance anti-aging skincare and regenerating treatments combining micro-current, ultrasound and LED technologies.
