LUX Saint Gilles
Amenities & Facilities
Located on the western coast of this lush volcanic island, LUX Saint Gilles faces a shimmering expanse of aqua-blue waters, fringed by a stretch of immaculate sands.
Tucked away in acres of beautiful tropical gardens, Creole villas sit in the shade of coconut palms and filao trees, just steps from the coral-sheltered lagoon at L’Hermitage.
The white-sand beach may call for idle lounging by the emerald-blue pool – it’s the largest one in Reunion Island – but there’s plenty here for thrill-seekers, too. Try a spot of tennis or volleyball in the grounds, or venture further afield to experience the rugged, dramatic beauty of the island’s volcanic peaks and tumbling waterfalls at this World Heritage Site.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, sample the day’s catch at our beachfront bars and restaurants. Float away with a zen yoga session in the gardens or a private in-room spa treatment – a peaceful end to an unforgettable day on this majestic island.
SPONTANEOUS AND FUN
We're always looking to inspire and delight our guests. If you find a message in a bottle, pick it up - it might be a complimentary spa treatment! If you don't find a bottle, you could always relax with a flat white at Café LUX*. Made with freshly roasted organic beans, we think it's the best resort coffee in the world. In the evening, pull up a beanbag at Screen on the Beach, or get tempted by dinner for two at the ocean's edge with a cheeky number from our house wines collection, Scrucap. We're here to make sure you get the best out of your island life experience, so when you wander around LUX* Saint Gilles you'll find plenty of reasons to celebrate life at its lightest and brightest.
We have crafted a unique series of dining experiences that will immerse you in the history and bounty of our people and produce. Choices include time-honoured Creole recipes at Le Carry’s Bar Kitchen - a convivial dining experience that’s as popular with the locals as it is with our guests, or perhaps a sensory lunch in our garden using herbs picked by yourself under the expert guidance of your private chef. For those landmark occasions and celebrations we also present Orangine, one of the finest gourmet restaurants on the island offering world-class cooking in a sumptuous setting.
RESTAURANTS & BARS
Light, fresh and ever so irresistible, LUX* restaurants offer everything that's exceptional about luxury island dining, with none of the heavy, overly indulgent extras. Enjoy the very best dishes, flavours and textures that the island's many cultures and Creole influences have to offer at any one of our authentic dining environments. Bon appetit!
RUM BY ME
Starting with a trip to La Saga du Rhum museum, you will be guided on a sensory adventure through the history of the island and manufacture of this complex and wonderful drink. Back at the resort, the journey continues with a private tasting of some of Reunion’s most famous blends including flavoured rums exclusive to LUX* Saint Gilles. You will then have the opportunity to mix your own exclusive blend, presented to you beautifully packaged with a personal label. What’s more, we’ll stay in contact and even send you additional bottles to keep you stocked up throughout the year.
THE VANILLA ISLANDS - ONE TRIP, TWO ISLANDS, LOTS OF FUN
Separated by 165 miles of sparkling Indian Ocean, Mauritius and Réunion are like twin gems. Thanks to LUX*, you can experience the cultures and flavours of both islands in one fantastic holiday! Start with a leisurely Mauritian beach break before switching smoothly into action mode on vibrant Réunion, or vice versa. The choice is yours…
ROOMS & SUITES
Every LUX* guest room and suite has been carefully designed to combine the best of colonial elegance with genuine island charm. Stroll through fragrant gardens of bougainvillea and hibiscus to find idyllic white-washed Creole villas. Step inside onto the cool slate floor and take in the subtle lighting with thoughtful touches of finely crafted fabrics and furnishings. Then sink into your comfortable bed and fall asleep to idle thoughts of what new island wonders tomorrow might bring.
Island resort holidays aren't just for grownups anymore.
At LUX* Saint Gilles, we've made sure there's always something for the whole family to enjoy.
