LUX* Grand Gaube unveils new look

MAURITIUS, March 7, 2018

The Lux* Resort Grand Gaube in Mauritius has re-opened its doors, marking the completion of a multi-million dollar renovation plan.

The revamped property features a spacious lobby that offers stunning views of the ocean with the picturesque Plate Island on the horizon.

Redesigned by Kelly Hoppen, a South African interior designer, the property makes guests feel at home with its simple-yet-refined design style.

All rooms, suites and villas open to stunning sea views 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. Spindrift-white bedrooms are enhanced with details like unexpected home-from-home touches, such as succulents in ceramic pots. Handwoven African baskets, wicker tables and smooth floors ensure all bedrooms are as comfortable as can be. Geometric encaustic tiles add graphic-design personality to ensuites, and many bathrooms have reclaimed bespoke Victorian bathtubs. The top-level accommodation is the signature two-bedroom LUX* Villa, which sleeps a family of four in a beautiful blend of original, modern styling and classic retro chic.

The hotel also features six restaurants and seven bars — many of which are totally unique styles to Mauritius. Enjoy sunshine or starlight through the glazed ceilings, of Palm Court Restaurant and feel the gentle lagoon breeze. Savour dishes cooked à la minute with seven live-cooking stations scattered throughout the foliage-filled dining room. Every table has a knock-out ocean view, with seating on cosy banquettes and at kitchen counters. Be it breakfast or dinner, guests are spoilt for choice to satisfy their wildest cravings.

With the largest selection of prosecco and cider in the country, and a unique selection of six craft, local and imported beers on tap, the Palm Court Bar promises to be a place that has everyone feeling exactly how they hope to on holiday.

Inti, the first Argentinian-Peruvian restaurant in Mauritius throbs to Latin American music from late afternoon onwards — as dreamy for sundowners as after-dinner drinks. Atmospheric and inspired, a DJ soundtracks the Ceviche and Pisco Bar, for these seafood and cocktails specialities are expertly prepared to whet guest's appetite for dinner in the lagoon-side garden. 

As a tribute to LUX*’s award-winning resort in Turkey, the Bodrum Blue at LUX* Grand Gaube serves seafood fresh from the Indian Ocean with excellent Turkish wines esteemed by connoisseurs. The selection and variety of dishes are inspired from Bodrum’s coastline and prepared to perfection thanks to Bodrum’s Blue Turkish chef. Five Turkish wines have joined our Scrucap collection and they are only available at Bodrum Blue.

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. 
 
The Lux* Resort Grand Gaube is the first resort in Mauritius, also, to have an Essie nail bar, and 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.
 
Art and soul abound thanks to the talents of London-based French artist Camille Walala, who has created a stunning pop-style artwork at Beach Rouge. There are imaginative Gouzou graffitis, too, hidden around the resort, painted by French street-artist, Jace. Guests can go Gouzou-spotting as they search for the witty hand-painted illustrations, which have a cult following across Europe, Africa, China and the Indian Ocean region.
 
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, as well as 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. - TradeArabia News Service
