Luxury bespoke holidays to LUX* Grand Gaube, Mauritius

LUX* Grand Gaube, a luxury sister hotel to LUX* Belle Mare occupies an enviable position in a sandy cove in the northern part of Mauritius with views out across the lagoon in front of the hotel to islets with names such as 'Gunners' Point', 'Flat Island' and 'Sugar Loaf'. The bedrooms occupy the ground floor and two upper storeys set alongside the beach, away from the main building which houses the reception area and the main restaurant. The decoration is discreet and tasteful and one of the prime objectives in its conception was to be in harmony with its natural environment, according to the feng shui principles that guide the design and furnishings throughout the hotel. Each room type reflects an element - metal, water, wood, earth or fire - whilst the Presidential Villa reflects all five feng shui elements. Superior rooms interconnect and all rooms and suites have open-plan bathrooms with large bathtubs. The hotel is ideally suited to leisure pursuits with a good range of water and land sports, including a Thalasso Spa which features a seawater pool, a high-tech gym and t'ai chi courses. Grand Gaube has five restaurants to cater for different tastes, from the breakfast buffet served in Ginkgo to La Bastide mediterranean restaurant, the seafood restaurant Abalone or the Karma House, the hotel's culinary flagship, which serves a fusion of French and Asian cuisine.

About Mauritius

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Mauritius gives travellers a true experience of paradise. Mauritius is a luxury holiday destination par excellence, with a superb concentration of outstanding hotels offering the highest possible standards of comfort and service. The island of Mauritius is very attractive with a lush, green interior and sugar cane fields alongside jagged mountain peaks. Along the coastline there are miles of soft white sand beaches lapped by calm, translucent, turquoise water, protected by a reef almost entirely around the whole island. The beaches of Mauritius are often the highlight of a luxury holiday here, fringed by casuarinas or coconut palms which sway against the deep blue of the sky and the turquoise of the sea. Poinsettia and bougainvillaea line the roads and hug the buildings. It is the people of Mauritius that make this island so very special and unique, living in a harmony that welcomes and pleases visitors. There is a fascinating mix of Indian, African, Chinese and European with religions being Hindu and Islam, Buddhist and Christian. This attractive mix of flavours is apparent in the local architecture and cuisine which makes a rich use of the local fruits and spices. Mauritius is a paradise of sea and sand with charming people, offering a perfect luxury holiday destination.

Highlights of Mauritius

Sega dancing. Maha Shivaratri festival. Paul et Virginie by Bernardin de St Pierre a love story based on the incidents during the wreck of the St Geran. Chicken and prawn curry and Creole dishes using the local spices. Heart of palm is a local delicacy. Local beer is Phoenix Pilsner and local rum is Green Island. Serious deep-sea fishing with some of the world's top fishing off Le Morne where blue marlin is caught. Walking along the defunct railway lines of Mauritius or hiking in the Domaine du Chasseur. Clothes, stamps, model ships and basket work are all things to buy.
