Between culture and nature, Mauritius is much more than just a picture of a postcard. Staying on the island is an opportunity to learn more about local life in the colonial era, the making of rum, tea, coffee or to meet the giant turtles that live there.

Located a 20-minute drive from the LUX* Grand Gaube, the Pamplemousses Garden is worth a visit and is an emblematic activity of the island, perfect for families. Young and old will be impressed by the countless varieties of plants and flowers inhabiting the 91 acres of the park. Among these, think of bamboos, sometimes 15 meters high, or giant water lilies 5 meters in diameter! It is in this context of enchanting nature that the author Bernardin de Saint-Pierre would have composed the story of Paul and Virginie, the Romeo and Juliet of Mauritius. Do not forget to go through the enclosures of giant turtles and deer.

The hotel offers a bicycle rental. Ideal to go at your own pace to discover the island, its villages and markets. Why not enjoy an afternoon pedalling to Notre-Dame Auxiliatrice, a charming church whose roof, bright red, contrasts with the blue of the ocean near …

The LUX* Air experience, proposed by the hotel, is not to be missed. By seaplane or helicopter, take the height to admire the sumptuous landscapes of the island, its vegetation and turquoise waters, a paradise for divers.

The LUX* Grand Gaube offers its guests an exceptional variety of sports activities free of charge. Discover the great blue waterskiing, windsurfing, pedal boating, kayaking, snorkelling, catamaran or paddleboarding. Boat trips with glass bottom are also available.

The hotel also has beach volleyball and tennis courts, ping-pong tables and a petanque court!

Another unique experience for all the family: a bottle in the sea. The staff hides often a bottle in the gardens or even on the beach. If you have the chance to find it, read the message inside: it contains a gift! This may be a free massage or a surprise dinner, such as a bottle of champagne. This will give a playful and surprising side to your stay.



The LUX* Grand Gaube has grasped the importance of combining spaces where to meet in family and others where each one can take time for oneself. So while kids are having fun at the Play kids’ club, parents can turn to the quiet space and its adults-only pool.

Thanks to a partnership with Mont Choisy Le Golf Club (located 15 minutes from the hotel), the LUX* Grand Gaube offers its golfing guests the opportunity to practice their swing on this spectacular 18-hole course. Created by former professional player Peter Matkovich, this course offers splendid greens.

In addition to 12 treatment rooms, the LUX* Me Spa offers a sauna, a steam room and 3 dedicated swimming pools (hot water, ambient water and cool water) to continue relaxation beyond the massage. After your treatment, remember to stop by the spa bar to enjoy a detox juice or fresh fruit.

Water aerobics, tai chi and yoga classes will allow you to disconnect from everyday life and work simultaneously on your mind and body.

To end a sunny day in style, entrust your children to the care of experienced LUX* Grand Gaube babysitters and treat yourself to a private dinner on the beach. Before this romantic tête-à-tête, Mom will have had the opportunity to be pampered by enjoying a manicure-pedicure at the spa or a treatment at the hair salon by Kerastase.

Marion, mother of two little boys, from Rennes, France.



Which parent has never dreamed of being able to combine a luxury hotel with a family vacation? After a year full of twists and turns, we dreamed of spending a week away from everything, with only turquoise seas, fine sand and our two boys playing in the water! Thus for the holidays of Toussaint, we set our sights on this pearl of the Indian Ocean: Mauritius!



The main difficulty in preparing for our stay was to find a hotel that combined high-end services and genuine childcare. We wanted to enjoy moments together with the boys, but also moments for four in an exceptional and suitable location for our toddlers. This is why we booked a week during mid-October at the LUX Grand Gaube hotel. We finally discover this gem nestled on the north coast of Mauritius in the heart of beautiful tropical gardens.



As soon as we arrived, the tone was set: children are more than welcome at the hotel! With a personalized welcome by PLAY, the kids club of the hotel, a homemade chocolate milkshake to enjoy after a long trip, backpack filled with small presents. Everything is done so that children are happy!


“PLAY welcomes children from 3 years old”


PLAY welcomes children from 3 years old. You can also use a nursery service for the little ones who will provide them with special care and respect. Each week, a varied programme of activities is offered to children according to their ages and desires: making boats, bracelets or swords, treasure hunt, swimming pool, beach games, painting on tee-shirt. The club takes care of the meals and also the snacks: ice cream festival, cake decoration and a crepes party! What a treat ! Parents can enjoy their early evening. Children, get ready to go hunting crabs on the beach, to disguise yourself or to attend a local dance show, Sega!



Renovated in December 2017, the hotel has a refined style in a chic and cozy atmosphere. It mixes contemporary design and natural materials with elegance. We had booked two connecting rooms; an ideal configuration when traveling with young children. It is both the security of having our children close to us while maintaining a parental living space in complete privacy. Perfectly equipped and facing the ocean, the rooms are equipped with all essential baby equipment. An umbrella bed was installed for our youngest son while our eldest enjoyed his king size bed! Baby phones are also available to parents.


“We booked two connecting rooms; an ideal configuration when traveling with young children. “


The hotel offers a wide choice of restaurants, quality cuisine and fresh products made on site. There are high chairs and plastic tableware suitable for children. The pool overlooking the bay offers a shaded space, shallow depth where the youngest can wade under the supervision of a lifeguard. How about a stroll through the tropical gardens of the hotel? Or try your luck on the wish tree, see a film in the movie theatre, enjoy a homemade ice cream, take a barista class at the LUX * coffee hostesses or drink a rum in the trees. We will also remember above all the warm and sincere welcome of all the people we met in the hotel. Our children were always greeted with big smiles, accompanied by a kind word.
