LUX* Grand Gaube

A retro-chic oasis with Mauritian charm

Tucked away on a secluded peninsula on the north coast of Mauritius, beside the fishing village of Grand Gaube, LUX* Grand Gaube provides an oasis. Set amid sprawling tropical gardens with hammocks, enveloped by undulating coves and overlooking a peaceful topaz lagoon and two white-sand beaches, this stylish, retro resort merges beach bliss with the vibrant energy of Mauritius for a memorable island getaway.

A total of 186 rooms, suites and villas in earthy neutrals awash with marine accents encourage you to feel at home. But this home comes with British interior designer Kelly Hoppen’s elegant interiors, Mauritian architect Jean-Francois Adam’s vision of contemporary Indian Ocean life and perks like three swimming pools — including an adults-only option on the edge of the peninsula — and a spa.

A nod to art, film, music and style throughout the property lends a distinct and creative personality. For example, a red British-style telephone booth with an E.T.-inspired “Phone Home” sign lets you dial free international calls.
