Just a short distance from the peaceful fishing village of Grand Gaube, amongst a swathe of gently swaying coconut palms and fragrant filao trees rests the LUX* Grand Gaube. With an alluring blend of sumptuous luxury accommodation, warm Mauritian charm and soul inspiring tranquillity, the hotel is an enchanting retreat in one of the island’s most beautiful locations and the host for this unforgettable travel package.
The Kitchen is the resort’s main restaurant with 250 seats arranged meticulously upon a tiled terrace beside the glinting outdoor swimming pool. Clad in wood and linen and offering everything from bountiful breakfast buffets to elegant dishes mulled with local spices, it promises an invigorating blend of traditional Mauritian flavours, staggering panoramas and soul soothing evenings under the stars.
For a more intimate culinary affair guests can indulge in the tantalising flavours and textures of Mediterranean cuisine at The Beach. Dainty crystal ware and aromatic dishes saturated with passion and the unmistakable tastes of rosemary and thyme rest upon white clothed tables and the sound of cascading waves and melodious laments of Red Whiskered Bulbul songbirds create the characteristic soundtrack to Mauritian sojourns.
The Banyan Island Kitchen is an outdoor restaurant that offers a delightful culinary experience that will appeal to guests interested in the provocative flavours of traditional Mauritian street food. Set beneath the majestic boughs of one of the island’s oldest Banyan trees, guests can explore the intricate flavours of gateaux piment and try to distinguish between the subtle Asian, African and European influences while the afternoon sun filters delicately through the swaying leaves.
Grand Gaube is a tiny village that clings to a particularly striking stretch of the island’s northern coastline. Approximately 29 kilometres from the capital city of Port Louis and a mere 6 kilometres from the unassumingly dramatic fishing village of Cap Malheureux, Grand Gaube is ideally situated on a section of the island that allows visitors an unforgettable glimpse into the local culture. Even more interesting about this humble village is its roots in literary art – Bernardin de St. Pierre’s acclaimed novel Paul et Virginie was inspired by the foundering of Saint-Géran, a French slave ship that met its end on a fringing reef in 1744.
