Lux Grand Gaube – 5*

 We had the fortunate pleasure of staying for 4 nights in the Emperors Villa at LUX Grand Gaube  – WOW!! What a treat!– a two bedroom villa with private pool, Jacuzzi, and our own private beach and a butler –  It was amazing, we felt like Royalty!!IMG_9334IMG_9361

Grand Gaube certainly has so much to offer for all guests looking to experience Mauritius with a touch of class!!

The highlights for our family were the following:

The Banyan Trees – Picturesque and absolutely beautiful adding to the natural beauty of the resort! At one end of the resort, there is an adults only area that has a tranquil pool and amazing restaurant lux-grande-gaube-rav-1catering to honeymooners and those that want some quite time away from noise and crowds.


The FoodThe Abalone Restaurlux-grande-gaube-dinner-beach-abalone-rav-2ant – was outstanding and our waiter Daniel was truly special and a true Gem to the staff complement!!   He certainly made a difference to our stay.  Our Lunch we had at the Banyan Kitchen was sensational and this was one of the highlights of our stay. The Mauritian Food we had prepared in the outdoor kitchen was superb and one that we still talk about now!

For somethinlux-grande-gaube-rav-3g of a difference, book a meal on the floating platform – this is a fantastic experience, completely secluded, so romantic and the perfect location to pop the question if you have proposal plans 🙂

The Kids Club  – even though this resort is not kFullSizeRendernown to be suited for lots of children, the kids club staff really made an effort to entertain and provide plenty of activities that kept my 6 year old going back daily – from cake boss, to t-shirt painting, to crafting, to looking for a message in a bottle to karaoke – Stephanie and the other ladies were so lovely FULLSIZEand accommodating to the whims of my 6 year old!

Boot Camp – Once a week , for the fitness fanatics there is an outdoor bootcamp that guests can participate in with obstacles set up outdoors – such a great concept!

Activities and boathouse – There are two brand new tennis courts and two slightly older ones, that are regularly used for competition play and are in very good condition. You can purchase tennis balls and there are tennis racquets that can be utilised. There is a fitness centre that has all the necessary workout equipment, bocce ball and table tennis. The boat house is extremely well run with peddle boats, kayaks, SUP’s, windsurfs and snorkeling equipment. The staff took safety very seriously and were also very helpful with giving lessons and guidance on using the different equipment.

lux-grande-gaube-rav-4Fancy a ride in a seaplane – they have one! Practice your golf swing? There’s a great driving range on the resort to keep up your swing during your stay!  Wish upon a tree? There is one!  At LUX Grand Gaube, there is the perfect balance between an active and restful holiday – you decide. If you can, I highly recommend to book the Emperor’s Villa – staying at thIMG_9350e Emperors Villa will make your holiday a completely different experience and one that you will not regret spending the extra money on.IMG_9360I want to thank Brice & Stefan for looking after us so well.

I want to thank our Butler Balraj , then Rishi and Nina in the bar and lastly the ever smiling Benina in reception. You all gave us such a wonderful, wonderful holiday!!

A fabulous stay was had by all!!
