In the small fishing village of Grand Gaube, not far from the tourist hot spot, Grand Baie, is this superb hotel. Based around the ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui and built around a picture perfect bay with a golden beach, Lux Grand Gaube is a zen-like experience in relaxation and luxury.
The decor of the rooms and main areas pay homage to Feng Shui while still encompassing all the mod-cons one could ask for. The rooms are air-conditioned, tastefully furnished and have internet access, satellite TV, shower, bath and an outside balcony. The luxury suites have private jacuzzis. There are several restaurants to choose from, and you will find the food to suit your palate. There is also the unique relaxing Thalaspa "The Source".
The prevailing winds being offshore on the North Coast means that the sea conditions are perfect for water sports. Spending your days out on the water is the thing to do in the North - whether you choose to take a catamaran trip out to one of the outlying islets for a beach barbecue or stay closer inshore and enjoy watersking, parasailing, windsurfing and a whole host of other activities. With the clear waters, the conditions are perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving and further out to sea you can land a monster fish on a deep sea fishing expedition. The North also has at least two inland places of interest, which are "La Nicoliere" drive and the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden, where you can see the famous waterlily pond.
