About the Resort
Located on the West 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.

Restaurants & Bars
Orangine offers an enchanting setting with classically modern touches of sparkling glass and polished wood in a vibrant island ambience. Tuck into sumptuous lobster carpaccio on sugarcane, indulge in delicately crafted papaya spring rolls or be tempted by homemade cinnamon and honey ice cream complemented by an exceptional selection of wines.
The main restaurant is nestled between the beach and the beautiful La Plage celebrates the traditional Creole cuisine of the island. Dine on the wooden deck overlooking a magnificent view of the lagoon. Try island specialties such as spicy sausage rougail or red tuna tartar, followed by a delightful vanilla-flavoured rum or fresh papaya juice. Discover the exotic flavours of Latin and oriental themed dishes like savoury king prawns, duck magret or lobster. And of course, don’t forget to leave some room for a delectable chocolate tart or cardamom-flavoured banana cake for dessert.
Nothing beats a great cup of coffee. That’s why at LUX* Saint Gilles they only serve their very own delicious “Island Blend” of certified green organic beans. Roasted by the resorts experts and prepared for you with passion by the trained baristas, every cup of coffee served at the stylish Café LUX* is one to savour.
Open for breakfast and dinner, La Cuisine is the resort’s signature restaurant, offering a delectable array of international and island-inspired cuisine. Savour fresh seafood buffets and regional Chinese, Creole and Indian dishes as the talented local musicians and performers delight you with a genuine taste of island entertainment.
If you’re in the mood for a light, fresh lunch or a laid-back afternoon snack, swing by Le Bar for a tasty pizza, marlin sandwich or fresh seasonal salad. Overlooking the crystal-clear swimming pool, this lively venue offers appetising snacks and refreshing cocktails throughout the afternoon and evening, the perfect way to unwind after another adventure-filled day on the island.
