The Lux is a lovely hotel with everything pretty much perfect. The staff were exceptionally polite and the service provided was always good. Food was excellent, buffets in plentiful supply and variety. There was a free evening cocktail party offered one evening - lots of drinks and food. The public areas have a luxurious feel, the bedrooms (in blocks around...

After an amazing stay @ LUX Grand Gaube Mauritius last year we have chosen LUX 5 star destination Ile de la Réunion this year. Very good location, very friendly and service oriented staff and management. Room accommodation and surrounding perfect. We assume however that in high(est) season period a 5 star accommodation could offer some more value for money: not...

I had booked the hotel as part of my boyfriends surprise 30th birthday. We arrived at check-in, no one offered to take our bags to the hotel. The staff were generally rude, abrupt and slow.

We spent three nights in reunion at the lux as a precursor to our 11 nights in Mauritius for our honeymoon. We loved reunion, blown away by the island and was not what I expected. We only had 3 days here which isn't quite enough if you want to relax but we made the most of every second partly i...

I was amazed at the beauty of Reunion and very impressed by its 1st world infrastructure.
