LUX* Saint Gilles

The only five-star hotel on Reunion Island, blessed with a flawless beach


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.
