A completely reimagined luxury resort in Mauritius A retro-chic tropical retreat
With innovation at our core, LUX* has done it again.
This December, we’ll unveil a fresh new perspective on Mauritius with a reimagined resort unlike anything else on the island.
A pioneering vision from designer Kelly Hoppen delivers her signature timeless elegance with an eclectic series of spaces to convene or retreat – all deliciously retro-chic in style and delivering a real sense of residential beach house comfort.
Amongst lush tropical gardens, LUX* Grand Gaube is enveloped by undulating coves, the calmest of lagoons and is blessed with two tranquil beaches and three spectacular swimming pools.
From generously proportioned rooms with balconies or terraces, to romantic junior suites and showstopper villas with private pools and gardens – all come complete with Indian Ocean vistas and our legendary LUX* hospitality.
A global culinary journey leads to live cooking stations at the Palm Court, Peruvian and Argentinian cuisine at INTI, authentic Creole flavours at Bayan and a Turkish twist at Bodrum Blue. Add our famous Café LUX*, a French Kiss Mobile Bar, The G&T 100 Club plus Beach Rouge and a host of surprises at every turn – and resort living has never looked or tasted so good.
As a true destination resort, we also spoil you with space. There’s an abundance of places to relax or refuel and extensive sports and wellness facilities featuring a sensational new LUX* Me spa, fitness, tennis academy, golf and water sports. To tempt you from your lounger we also invite you to join us at inspirational classes and expert-led workshops.
With an easy living, smile-inducing personality – LUX* Grand Gaube is the best of every world.
Fresh from LUX*, it’s an entirely new way to savour the island of Mauritius.
Why LUX* Grand Gaube ?
Dramatic simplicity, timeless elegance and relentless passion are just three ways to describe the work of Kelly Hoppen. LUX* is proud to partner once again with this iconic interior designer and realise her vision for a fresh new take on resort living. We call it retro-chic – a style revival that’s deliciously nostalgic yet immediately familiar. There’s distinctly different designs across all accommodation categories, a focus on real residential comfort and an immediate sense of staying in your very own beach house. Kelly has also realised an eclectic series of spaces to eat, drink, convene or retreat – Mauritius has seen nothing quite like it.
A richly intimate salon, complimented by a secluded outdoor dining oasis. Savour the cultural blending of Peru and Argentina across three distinct spaces combining a vibrant ‘Hot Salsa’ open grill kitchen, our ‘Ceviche, Tiradito & Pisco’ bar’ and a dedicated pastry station with un-skippable sweet treats. With latin lounge music, love seats and ocean vistas – INTI is a first for Mauritius.
The Beach Rouge revolution continues at LUX* Grand Gaube with its feet-in-the sand, sea breezy scenario to take you from day to night and into the early hours. This effortlessly cool ocean front hangout tempts with informal drinking and dining – accompanied by easy lounging, new friends and the definitive soundtrack to your holiday.
Bird song, sea breezes and an ancient banyan tree provide the backdrop for an irresistible combination of dining experiences. Enveloped by nature, an authentic Creole smokehouse tempts with cured fish and meats whilst a shaded wooden shack perfects the art of the burger. Add a rum treehouse celebrating the flavours of the ‘Sugar island’ and a chic ‘French Kiss’ mobile bar – and Banyan is the place to explore the culinary influences of our island home.
THE PALM COURT
Redefining the concept of a resort restaurant, The Palm Court features live cooking stations with sit-up counters, chef encounters and dishes cooked right before your eyes. Fresh-thinking breakfasts and the lightest of lunches morph into after-dusk dining with kitchens dedicated to Mediterranean tapas, south east Asia, inventive rotisseries plus a walk-in glass box with the freshest seasonal produce and juices. Add a bakery and bespoke dessert bar, wine table experience and a separate cocktail bar – and this is the beating heart of LUX* Grand Gaube.
REIMAGINING LUX* GRAND GAUBE
We’re busy creating an entirely new resort at LUX* Grand Gaube and over the coming months we’ll be updating you on the all exciting transformations taking place. You’ll find all the latest news right here on our website and across social media – so stay tuned. Here at LUX*, we believe modern luxury requires a sense of real freedom and personal space – so our reimagined resort will be set amongst sprawling multi-tiered tropical gardens – newly created by award–winning designer Stephen Woodhams. With two beaches, a blissfully calm lagoon and the Indian Ocean never more than steps away, the resort will invite exploration with swaying hammocks and secluded shady spots for time alone – or together. We can’t wait to show you what’s in store and welcome you to our new island home.
Set on a private peninsula and with dedicated service, our three villas are the ultimate way to experience LUX* Grand Gaube. With bespoke interiors by Kelly Hoppen, they’re perfect for larger families or extended groups of friends and offer a retro-chic indoor-outdoor lifestyle and acres of space. All boast private swimming pools and gardens – with the LUX* Villa also featuring its own private beach. Our villas are set to become some of the most sought after in Mauritius.
SPORTS AND WELLNESS
With over one hectare of land dedicated entirely to wellness, we have everything you need to rest, replenish and recharge. Our spectacular new LUX* Me Spa is world unto itself and offers tailored treatments, bespoke programmes and nutritional advice from our Wellness Concierge. This is complemented by a world-class gym, fitness classes, meditation, yoga, a tennis academy, bike rides, golf and even a round of pétanque.
ROMANTIC JUNIOR SUITES
Set to be some of our most covetable accommodations, our 21 Romantic Junior Suites provide 70 square meters of indoor / outdoor living. A contemporary four poster bedroom gives way to a sleek oversized bathroom, then out onto a spacious balcony with chill out loungers and an outdoor bathtub just for two. Their elevated position assures intimacy, privacy and our finest ocean vistas.
