The only five-star hotel on Reunion Island, blessed with a flawless beach
Located on the western coast of this lush volcanic island, LUX* Ile de la Réunion 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 on the island – but there’s plenty here for thrill-seekers, too. Try a spot of tennis or volleyball within 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.

MOUTHWATERING CUISINE FROM A RICH AND DIVERSE CULTURE
The islands of the Indian Ocean are colourful melting pots,

flavour of Réunion. Our chefs visit local food markets, researching
local ingredients, traditional cuisine and cooking methods to

THE VANILLA ISLANDS
ONE TRIP, TWO ISLANDS, LOTS OF FUN
Separated by 165 miles of sparkling Indian Ocean, Mauritius and
Réunion are like twin gems. Thanks to LUX*, you can experience the
cultures and flavours of both islands in one fantastic holiday!
Start with a leisurely Mauritian beach break before switching
smoothly into action mode on vibrant Réunion, or vice versa. The
choice is yours…
IF YOU FEEL LIKE A BREAK FROM THE BEACH, YOU’RE IN FOR A TREAT…
Feeling active? Explore the coast for snorkeling, diving, surfing
and deep-sea fishing, or head inland for hiking, paragliding and
horse riding. See the waterfalls at Salazie, visit historic St Paul
and learn about local folklore at Musée de Villéle. Our Volcano
Magic 4x4 tour takes in the awe-inspiring natural beauty of
Réunion's most active volcano, Piton de la Fournaise. From the
ocean wave geyser at Souffleur you'll call at Col de Bellevue, the
Biberon waterfalls and the famous church, Notre Dame des Laves.
Following lunch at Anse des Cascades you'll explore the lava
tunnels with our certified speleologist, your torch unveiling
unlikely shapes and colours in a magical subterranean world.
