Located on the western coast of this lush volcanic island, LUX* Saint Gilles (formerly LUX* Ile de La Reunion) 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.

At check-in at this 5 star establishment we were asked to fill in our details ourselves as the staff had better things to do apparently. The white buildings with shingles on the roofs give the place a colonial feeling, or maybe a New England feeling. Difficult to see where the

I came here with my family to seek a gateway between Christmas and NYE, the least I can say is that the Lux fulfilled our desires to the most. The setup is beautiful and the personnel very helpful. This truly is a place where you can rest your head and can easily access other

Hi Are the drinks expensive as it’s HB Do they offer an AI rate? Thank you
Hi, I don’t think it was expensive (especially now after my Maledives holidays, that was ridiculous expensive, like $8+ tax for a can of coke), if i recall it correctly the prices at the LUX were normal. about 300 meters from the hotel you find a small shopping mall in case ....

HI, I am not quiet sure about the shuttle service to town but my advice would be use public means as it might be very cheap. Taxis are very expensive.

Bonjour, avez vous un service d'excursions ou visites?
Bonjour, je suis de l'île de la réunion donc nous n'avons pas besoin d'excursions mais il me semble qu'il y avait un poste à l'accueil de l'hôtel je ne pourrais malheureusement pas vous en dire plus

"choose one close to the beach or swimming pool."
"room on 2 floors"
"Rooms away from main hotel area are quieter. Downstairs better for families & adjoining rooms are great. Upstairs better for couples."
"Ask for a room on a first floor to get a better view and not facing the tennis courts."
"Ask for a room on a high level with a view of the sea"
