MUST VISIT: LUX* GRAND GAUBE
Daydreaming of the perfect beach getaway?
Look no further than the beautiful LUX* Grand Gaube Resort in Mauritius! My husband and I consider ourselves truly privileged to have visited this luxury resort, a little piece of heaven tucked underneath palm trees that gently sway in the fresh ocean breeze.
Situated in one of the Mauritian Islands most beautiful locations, is a peaceful retreat with every room blessed with magnificent ocean views (I have to make a special mention of how comfortable the beds were, I was planning as to how I could take our bed home with me). As we walked into the soul soothing resort we were welcomed by a breathtaking view of a crystal clear lagoon as well as the enchanting litte Islands in the distance, begging to be explored!
Guests are invited to revive & rejuvenate with some relaxing LUX* Me Spa treatments, swimming in one of the three pools around the resort or simply floating in the warm ocean (like I did everyday). You can unwind with a bunch of different activities that the resort has to offer. For all the water babies you can enjoy activities like snorkeling, kayaking, pedal boating, glass water boats trips and swimming with dolphins. For the first time, Dale and I tried stand up paddle boarding and this quickly became one of our favorite things to do at the resort! For the health and fitness bunnies you will be happy to know that LUX* Me offers a variety of tailor-made exercises, yoga classes and fitness programs. You can also soak up some fresh Island air and take a bike ride or a hike through to the local markets and villages.
Now for the food… OH THE FOOD! I will forever remember the world class luxury dining experience that we had at every single meal on everyday that we were at LUX* Grand Gaube. Meals were light, fresh and we could taste the wholesomeness of the wonderful ingredients! No dish was ever too heavy or loaded with overly indulgent add ons! Each meal was one to remember, bursting with the unforgettable flavors that the Mauritian culture has to offer!
You can dine at any of the four amazing restaurants within the resort. Every morning we loved starting off our day with fresh and healthy breakfasts offered at The Kitchen. The Beach showed off Mediterranean cuisine at its finest, paired with a lovely lagoon and scattered island view. I particularly enjoyed their yummy Quinoa Spaghetti. The Abalone which is situated right on the beach offers you the very best seafood that the island has to offer. Enjoy a light lunch or a beautiful dinner set under the stars. Lastly, The Island Kitchen is a gem hidden away under one of the Island’s oldest Banyan Trees. You can expect tasty Mauritian street food bursting with colors and flavour, bringing you an authentic island dining experience!
Our experience at LUX* Grand Gaube was a pleasure from beginning to end. We truly got lost in the peaceful Mauritian way of life. We have already began to make plans to go back to this wonderful place! A MUST VISIT destination for any travel bug!
