“Relaxing stay of my dreams”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

Me and my husband stayd in hotel LUX for 6 days and leaving the place was one of the most difficult matter like leaving your home, friends and family. Nice and delicious food of great choice, friendly and helpful staff, nice beaches and SUPER swimming pool... My great wish is to come back again as soon as possible!

Absolutely beautufull place and architecture of the hotel. It is light, airy, comfortable builded area which gives you enough private. The pool was the best we ever saw. Room equipment will let you little bit know about years that hotel has running.
Services are perfect. For honeymoon they have presents and the biggest was romantic dinner at the beach with super menu and great drinks.
What is the best of the hotel is the STAFF. People in LUX are not working. They take care of you as a member of family, they are always smiling, helpful, efficient.
If honemoon in European Union than in LUX Reunion.

My husband and I stayed in Le Grand Hotel du Lagon (now LUX) and had a great time - the rooms were spotless, the bed very comfy and huge, the breakfast buffet was delicious, location is perfect on one of the best beaches of the island and staff were very nice and helpful. Service quality is 1st class, definitely the best on the west coast of the island. Food at the hotel is very good but if you want to sample something different there are various options available within walking distance from the hotel. Will definitely go back!!!

Excellent hotel with great location by the beautiful Lagoon. Staff is very nice and kind. All of them speak English very well. Rooms are very nice and spacious (only bathroom is a little bit too small). Food served in hotel is very good but everything is a bit expensive. For sure we are coming back soon :)

We have recently returned from a too-short stay at LUX. Everything about the resort was first class, from our spotless and well equipped room to the pool, restaurants, gardens and beach. The staff are friendly, efficient and helpful, the food is great and varied, and we wished our stay could have been longer. We will definitely return.

My husband and I have just returned from a truly unforgettable stay at LUX. From the very moment we arrived, our relaxation was guaranteed and a perfect holiday assured. From the attentive service, the stunning Creole architecture, the breathtaking location and the delicious food - no wish was left unfulfilled. We shall no doubt remember the beautiful sunsets, the palm-fringed beach and the turquoise water of the lagoon for a long time to come. And topping this off was the delicious South Africa champagne, which we enjoyed in our flower-filled suite. Simply beautiful. Utterly perfect. We will return...

Room Tip: Suite 150 is heavenly!

Five days of relaxation and winding down. Excellent service, Good Food (if a bit expensive if outside the packages offered). Recommend you look at a full board deal when booking.
The hotel is well situated on the island and is sheltered from the trade winds that were blowing strongly in August when we were there. The Beach is on a coral lagoon, and snorkelling was great - the coral was in surprisingly good condition, given everything we hear about the effects of global warming & pollution.
