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 ?

"disappointed stayed"

  • Trip Type: Couple

Good: location, atmosphere, spacious rooms Very disappointed, reception was not very helpful and warm...but maintenance staff Jonny helped us with the request. We walked into a room with broken blinds and not a very clean bathroom. We requested from reception an international adaptor...their reply was that they didnt have the right one for us but on request to Jonny he got it....hotel is a 5 star location but need to be a 5 star standard n service!!!

"Lux Review"

  • 4
  • Trip Type: Business Traveler

Good: Great food, friendly staff and comfortable rooms Everything turned out to be generally well until our stay was spoiled with film shooting staff who invaded the hotel premises. We were also surprised to see that the reception asked us to settle the room bills again when we had paid everything through Agoda before arrival.

"Disappointing - LUX only by name"

  • 2
  • Trip Type: Couple

Good: Great location, and there's a staff member who makes you feel like a valued guest. Very disappoining overall. From 40 minutes waiting to check in to our 'Deluxe' room to find a tired worn out room, moldy bathroom tiles, blocked waste water pipes, badly maintained balcony in need of repair and new paint. Outside the private garden and beach were littered with plastic waste and a homeless guy who'd set up camp. The 'private coral beach for snorkeling' is a mess of dead coral which does not appear to benefit from the extra 'environmental benefit tax' we were encouraged to add to our bill. Seriously overpriced and hopelessly overrated.

"Well-trained staff, good food, great location"

Good: Staff, Food, Location it was a nice surprise; staff are all super helpful...they go out of their way to arrange activities outside the hotel area...had a very good stay

"The small things count"

  • 4
  • Trip Type: Couple

Good: Breakfast, bed, concierge extremely helpful. Overall we were very impressed with the hotel however were disappointed with some items, i.e. no milk (only 'milk in a tube') and nowhere to position cases for unpacking. Also poor maintenance, i.e. loose fittings in bathroom. The attention to small things is important and makes a big difference.

Good: - Check-in was very friendly and quick. - There is never a need to wait as there is always enough staff around. - Proximity to the beach. - Great breakfast buffet. - Restaurants (Buffet and La Plage) were good, but not extraordinary. Bad: - Hotel and infrastructure is really old and worn-out (rooms, pool area). - Garden and pool area not maintained well for a five star Hotel (dirty, old). - Price is too high. We were in a three star hotel for half the price with much better infrastructure.

Great hotel! We are here for our honeymoon. Very good hospitality, all the staff is trying to speak english as good as they can. The food is very good and also the drinks. Only one advice- to have some activities for the night, a small beach party or something to entertain people that do not want to go to bed really early.

Although some of the facilities could need some maintenance and a paint job, the service is superb, friendly staff, and the location is excellent. In terms of service and overall experience, this truely is a five-star hotel.

One thing I would say is the beds need to be replaced. Not sure if other beds were fine. The one we slept on seem to be very old.

Top hotel. Modern, clean, friendly and resourceful staff. Good breakfast. The lagoon has fish and coral and you can reach it from the beach without a boat, so it's very easy to snorkel. 10/10 would recommend.

"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.

"Wonderful Honeymoon"

  • 5

Great resort with fantastic staffs, special thanks to weitress at the beach bar, who gave personalized attention and gave us local rum at the end of the dinner. Also the consierge staff who was extremly professional and helpful. Beaufiful and shark-free beach.

"Room was in disrepair"

  • 2

Good: Close to beach Bad: Facilities need inspection and fixing; staff needs rejuvenation, e.g., they need a sense of urgency to fix things, and more staff in the restaurants - Location Tip: Beach, swimming, walks, bike rides This hotel is in a great location by the beach, and offers amenities including renting bikes for rides along the sea. But the staff was pretty lame, and the room was in disrepair - in our room the showerhead was falling apart, shelves were barely connected to the walls, and a big dangerous hole in the patio deck could have caused injury. Consdering hi price, not acceptable!

"Simple fantastic"

Good: Service,restaurant, room, pool, beach.... The beach is fantastic, the hotel superb...it was everything that we expected :)

"Pleasant hotel, good facilities."

Good: Relaxing and quiet Bad: The bathrooms need a soap dish Location Tip: Quiet location, very little within walking distance Nice hotel, service in all areas a little slow. Food in all dining outlets is good. Excellent swimming pool and ample supply of poolside facilities.

"Best place on La Reunion!"

Wonderful hotel, a real treat! Extremely friendly staff. Great restaurants, beautiful pools (large, deep). Room beautiful, but a bit dark. Beautiful beach. Not so easy to get there from the airport, long drive.

Probably the best hotel on the island, would return again.

"Good location and resort amenities but not 5 star."

  • 4
  • Trip Type: Family

The location of the property and general resort amenities are good, but the resort is not a 5 star standard. Probably a 4 star at best. Rooms are small and in-room amenities are limited. Room servicing and maintenance also not up to 5 star standards and needs management attention.

hotel isn't true 5 star, lobby is nice but rooms are very minimal. Not much more than a bed, tv and chair. bathroom is tiny; its impossible not to flood the bathroom because of open shower/tub.

"Amazing swimming pool and cinema on the beach"

we loved the food, the swimming pool and the cinema on the beach! We thought some of the staff lacked briefing before the day.
