Renowned for hypnotic blue waters, white beaches, lush mountains and thundering waterfalls, Mauritius is home to some of the world’s most indulgent resorts, including the just-reopened Lux Grand Gaube.
Located on the island’s far north coast, it’s a haven of fragrant gardens, picturesque coves and a tranquil lagoon, along with state-of-the-art accommodation featuring spacious rooms with balconies and villas with pools and private gardens. But the biggest drawcard is the food. The hotel has enlisted a battery of top international chefs to turn up the heat in restaurants, including Inti (a Peruvian-Argentinian eatery) and Bodrum Blue (which specialises in Levantine kebabs and meze). And when it’s time to switch off, make your way to the decadent spa or book an appointment with the “wellness concierge”, who can create a bespoke nutritional and fitness program just for you.
