LUX* Saint Gilles

Welcome to 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.

What do they say about us ?

"Superb location but poor service"

  • 4
  • Trip Type: Everyone

Superb location but some staff are borderline agressive while the hotel and certain rooms are in desperate need of repairs.

"Great hotel with direct access to the beach"

  • 4
  • Trip Type: Everyone

Great hotel. One regret. The room was quite standard. Water leak between the bath and the door bath. Paint blistered.

"Certainly not 5*"

  • 3
  • Trip Type: Everyone

Nice location on the beach with a great concierge service. However it is sorely let down by terrible service in the rest of the resort and small rooms that are in desperate need of refurbishment. Neither the service or rooms approach 5* level and some serious improvement is needed.

"Five star prices for four star facilities"

  • 4

Good: Access to beautiful beach at Ermitage with outstanding views. La Plage and Orangeries restaurants very good when we managed to get reservations. Beautiful common areas and clean bedroom. Friendly and helpful staff. Swimming pool well sized and room to swim. Supermarket close by which is important as dining options unexpectedly limited. Bad: Facilities not 5 star and 1100 for four nights grossly overpriced. Room needed significant maintenance (shower fitting broken, mirrors and lights damaged, mini-bar mounted on coarse chipboard. No tissues in tissue box, TV batteries dead, light above painting on wall dislodged). Restaurants only open sporadically and not always availability - for our first night we ate Haribo in our room as only available onsite resto was a vegetarian buffet. If you dont appreciate buffets (which are acceptable to me only at school and cheap Chinese restaurants) then book ahead. Sadly five star prices for four star facilities.

"Okay"

  • 3

Bad: The service was not good in terms of booking requests such as taxis. Pre information was not provided to give a heads up on issues like distance, taxi availability/accessibility which would have changed the dynamic of the trip completely.

"Exceptional"

  • 5

Good: The assistants Paula and Cedrik are most helpful...difficult having a good stay without them
