Top Tips from our Experts

Taylor

Destination Executive

"From June to September, LUX* Saint Gilles is the prefect spot on the island to watch the whales coming from the Atlantic to the warmer waters. Between 17:00 and 18:00, head to the beach and gaze out over the lagoon to be amazed by this incredible sight."

a wonderful 5 day getaway to the Island of Reunion

Durban, South Africa

Beautiful hotel with a protected reef infront of the hotel. The food was good, the service wasnt so great. There didnt seem to be enough staff in the diningrooms to accomodate the number of guests, i.e. plates left on the tables for long and they seem run off their feet. A really beautiful setting.

5 star hotel by default

Johannesburg, South Africa

I dont like writing bad reviews, but in all honesty the hotel was somewhat of a disappointment. We stayed at Lux* for 7 nights and even though the hotel was nice and clean, it definitely was not worthy of all the stars. Nothing spectacular, an average 3* or 4*. The service was not up to speed and maybe because of the fact that we couldn't speak French, it felt like we didn't get the same attention as the French speaking guests.
