Another 10 Days in Paradise - September 2018

Clacton-on-Sea, United Kingdom

There is only one place to start this review and that is with the staff, we feel so lucky to have had these people in lives, as they make you feel like you are the most important people in the world - they welcome you back like long lost friends and we consider them all amongst our very best friends too. The first special mention goes to Elena, she is one fantastic lady and was the first person we saw as we were welcomed home, there was hugs all round and a personal service that was second to none, including an up grade to an fantastic suite, nothing is too much trouble - thanks Elena we miss your lovely smile 😊 Now everyone who has been lucky enough to go to the Lux Grand Gaube won’t have failed to meet the most famous Beach Manager on the island of Mauritius, the man with the hat - Reedoo, a wonderful man with a wonderful smile and work ethic which is unrivalled anywhere, the changes he has brought to the beach since the recent renovations make the guest experience even better and of course the sunglass cleaning is still on the list. As a couple we liked to use the adults only beach, so Lux need to clone Reedoo and have one on each beach 😂 If you are coffee lovers then Cafe Lux is the place for you, there you will be met by 4 lovely ladies - Karuna, Selvina, Shekina and Naha, after a couple of visits, every one will greet you by name and make you your favourite coffee, these girls are one of the most important hubs of this hotel and are a great asset, having visited the Lux Belle Mare I would say these girls are on par with the Baristas - we so miss you all and of course the coffee 😘 In the Palm restaurant you will not find a nicer man than Direen, to him you are the only people in the restaurant and he will do everything to make your dining experience so special and if you can’t find anything to eat (which I very much doubt) then Direen will arrange to get you what you fancy and provide his excellent experience to help you choose 😊 In the Palm restaurant you will also find Swaraj, Purgun and Vinesh who will always greet you with a smile and make sure you have everything you need After dinner and a coffee a visit to the main bar is a must, here you will find a great atmosphere and some very good acts, including the most famous band on the island of Mauritius - the Famous Nine, you will also find some of the best bar staff on the island, who will keep you drinking you favourite tipple all night, special mention goes to Oodum, Pralaid, Jay, Vegen and the lovely Nina At the Lux Grand Gaube you are spoilt for choice when it comes to food, for as well as the Palm, there is also the Beach Rouge, Bodrum Blue, Creole Smoke House and the Inti, we went to all of these apart from the Inti. At each of these restaurants you are looked after by the best staff. Running the Beach Rouge is fantastic Nikesh and is ably supported by lovely Shaun, Sourya and Madvi, try the Tender Loin and the Profiteer Rolls - delicious. The Blue Bodrum give you taste of Turkey, here you are looked after by Akshay and the Adilah, where nothing is too much trouble, great food and a wonderful atmosphere overlooking the bay. The Creole Smoke House is situated near the adult only area, and for those of you who have been before this is the Bayan Tree, on a warm windless night its such a great place to eat, but beware if the wind blows and its rainy, there is no cover. The night we ate at the Creole Smoke House, we were very lucky as we had an early reservation and had just finished when the rains came - not good for those just sitting down, anyway Adi looked after us and we had a great evening. I cant leave the topic of food without mentioning the BBQ area at the adults area, now I have eaten many burgers in my life, but the burgers here are by far the very best, my wife is not a burger person and she had 3 during our 10 day stay, the pulled pork I also fab, thanks to Utam for his great service and smile. Another special mention goes to Kawal the concierge manager, for during our stay my prescription sunglasses lense dropped out and he managed to fix them and saved my holiday - many thanks Kawal A further special mention goes to Mario who everyday at 10 o'clock does a nature walk around the beautiful hotel grounds, Mario's knowledge and expertise is second to none, as for many years he held the post of 'Head Gardener' we spent a fascinating hour learning all there was to know about the flowers and plants, we were also lucky enough to asked to come back the next day and plant a palm tree, which was a special moment for my wife and I, Mario also arranged to have photos taken and we given prints to take home - many thanks Mario My final special mention goes to the most loveliest person anybody would wish to meet - Jean Philip, He is the manager at the Inti restaurant and has been a member of staff at the Lux Grand Gaube for many years, Jean Philip represents everything thing that is great about this hotel. friendly, provides impeccable service, professional, every guest is treated as if you are the only guest in the hotel, the personal services is unquestionably the best I have experienced, along with all this there's the location, fantastic grounds, pools, beach and weather Thanks Grand Gaube we truly feel blessed , we miss you all, but hope to return soon Mark and Karen
