From the first moment we arrived at the hotel to the day we left the staff made the holiday one we'll remember forever.

The hotel, food and location were truly amazing and it was everything we had dreamt and hoped it would be.

A special mention and thanks go to Diren from the Bar, and Rishi from the adults only beach. They couldn't do enough for us.

Wish we could have stayed forever!!

Dear Woody2903,

Greetings from LUX* Grand Gaube!

"From the first moment we arrived at the hotel to the day we left the staff made the holiday one we'll remember forever."- is a tribute that brings so much wrath to our hearts.

We will for sure praise Diren from The Kitchen for the wonderful service he provided to you during your stay and we truly hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again soon,

Receive my best regards,

My husband and I stayed at LUX Grande Gaube as part of a sort of second honeymoon for 2 weeks. I have never had a holiday like it. The resort was stunning, the room was beautiful and big, the food was out of this world and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Loads to do but plenty of opportunities to do nothing. There was something for everyone there. It felt like we had all the space in the world as well, it never felt overcrowded. There were a lot of nice touches as well, such as the tree of wishes, message in a bottle and the wonderful send-off we got on the day we left. I thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and would recommend this place for anyone!

Dea Marie F,

What a beautiful title to a wonderful review that we had the pleasure of discovering today. Thank you so much for all your encouraging words,

As rightly put across by yourself, indeed the hotel was full during your stay with us, however, the place never look overcrowded as there is always something for everyone at LUX* Grand Gaube.

Thank you for recommending our resort so highly and we look forward to help you celebrate life during a future stay again,

Sincere regards,

Stephan Anseline

My wife and I have recently returned from our wedding and honeymoon at the LUX Grand Gaube. It was truly amazing, the hotel and location is without doubt a 5* plus but frankly its the staff that make this place so beautiful. They simply couldn't do enough for us, pleasant, engaging, informative, friendly they are LUX's platinum asset. We were married on the foreshore on a lovely Thursday afternoon, photographs around the hotel followed by a romantic meal for two back at the wedding location again on the foreshore. We were attended to by Vijay who made sure that the day and the evening was perfect, and it was. We returned to the main bar afterwards and even though my wife and I were there alone the venue erupted into a Wedding party and we all danced the night away.
The following day we took a boat trip [ A must ] we booked it through the hotel, its cheaper. We had thought that it would be a group event but actually it was just for us! a wooden sloop style boat. There was Vijay again loading the boat with drinks for us and food, we sailed off catching fish [ a fish ] on the way. We threw our message in a bottle into the sea near to the reef and sailed onto the mangrove where we snorkelled and then onto a deserted island where we explored, returning to the boat a barbecue had been prepared for us, amazing!. We returned to the resort by sail, what a lovely day and a lovely day to spend after the wedding.

We also hired a taxi via the concierge Cooshnan , we enjoyed visiting the Crater, Waterfalls, 7 Coloured Earth. What really made the day special was that the Concierge booked us into the LUX LeMond in the South of the Island, when we arrived we were treated like Royalty. Next time we might spend a week there and a week at Grand Gaube?

We did visit the Goodlands Market and we caught a bus to Grand Bae - a few days later we took bikes from the resort and cycled there, both are worth a visit but not a great deal there. We enjoyed exploring the village of Grand Gaube, nice little bar there and ladies clothes/bag shop.

The facilities at the hotel are fantastic, we played Tennis, took the bikes out had a session on the Golf Range and we used the Spa.

We went to the Wine tasting one night hosted by Rebecca, a lovely non pretentious genial evening with lovely guests from all over the world. If you like your wine and we do its a must!

Another lovely evening was the sabering night, where we learned how to take the cork out of a bottle of prosecco with a sabre! very enjoyable.

The food at the hotel is lovely, plenty and varied. Make sure you book for all the restaurants, there are several. Don't forget that there is a pool and restaurant on the other side of the resort the Banyon. Try the ice cream from the Mini.

If you like, take a flight around the island, two sea planes are located on the beach [ pilot provided lol]

Weather was a little mixed but to be fair its the start of the summer but there was plenty of sun, next time we will go a little later in the year.

Before returning home we had the romantic meal by the pool which was lovely - if you like prosecco ask for Popcap. The wines are lovely, all South African.

To sum up - this is a must do, if you are wondering which hotel to visit on the island its got to be a LUX and for me my first choice will always be Grand Gaube. My thanks to Paul the Bar manager, Cooshnan Concierge, Arouna who kept our room clean and tidy, Vijay for catering to our every need and Nitisha for planning our wedding - there are so many people to mention I thank you all, not forgetting the lady who makes the omelettes every morning! Thank you Grand Gaube, thanks to all the staff you made our wedding so memorable and so sad to leave - Diolch yn fawr I chi gyd

Lux Grand Gaube is a beautiful resort. The staff are very friendly and attentive, we found the quality of accommodation to be very high, and the food was amazing. We visited for our honeymoon and we felt it was a very fitting end to what had been an amazing month or so. I would happily recommend Lux Grand Gaube to anybody.

We often visit the Island , first time at Grand Gaube - lovely hotel , attentive staff , food excellent with great choice. Feel that resort is more aimed at adults though , very few kids around. Evening entertainment good around bar and nice atmosphere for after dinner drink.
