Lux Grand Gaube reopens with extensive wellness facilities
POSTED 16 Mar 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
The Lux Grand Gaube in Mauritius has reopened after a US$32m renovation by London-based designer Kelly Hoppen and Mauritius designer Jean-Francois Adam, who have reimagined the resort in a “simple-yet-refined” style.

With over a hectare of land dedicated to wellness, the resort’s spa includes African-style huts and is designed to connect guests to nature. A new hydrotherapy pool, aromatic steamroom and sauna have been added, along with an Artis Technogym fitness centre, open-air calisthenic workout programmes, meditation and yoga space.

Aromatherapy experiences from Lux Me’s Shirley Page treatments are on offer, as well as Carita ‘s anti-ageing skincare and regenerating treatments, which combine micro-current, ultrasound and LED technologies.

The resort also boasts an Essie nail bar and also a authentic barber’s shop from Murdock’s of London, with its signature wet shave and beard and moustache trimming service in style.

A specialised health programme is also available from Kamran Bedi of Mind Body Method, an NLP master practitioner (neurolinguistic programming), hypnotherapist, meditation teacher and Pilates instructor. Guided meditation and stretch-based classes are designed to assist the body in releasing tension, while barre-style workouts and a new Pilates practice, Movement On The Roller, work on the whole body, promoting balance and mindfulness.

Hoppen and Adam have created airy interiors filled with natural light and sea views, and included touches like succulents in ceramic pots, hand-woven African baskets, wicker tables and geometric encaustic tiles.

London-based French artist Camille Walala has created a pop-style artwork at Beach Rouge, and imaginative Gouzou graffitis, painted by French street-artist Jace, are hidden around the resort.

The Lux Grand Gaube in Mauritius has reopened after a US$32m renovation by London-based designer Kelly Hoppen and Mauritius designer Jean-Francois Adam, who have reimagined the resort in a “simple-yet-refined” style.

With over a hectare of land dedicated to wellness, the resort’s spa includes African-style huts and is designed to connect guests to nature. A new hydrotherapy pool, aromatic steamroom and sauna have been added, along with an Artis Technogym fitness centre, open-air calisthenic workout programmes, meditation and yoga space.
