Perfectly positioned on the west coast of Réunion, LUX* St Gilles (formerly LUX* Ile de la Reunion) is the only 5 star hotel on the island, and has the facilities, views and location to match.

Isabel and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

LUX* St Gilles is within stumbling distance of one of the island's most beautiful beaches, as well as being close to the Pitons, Cirques and Ramparts - all of which make Réunion such an incredible place to visit.

The rooms and suites are housed in charming white washed Creole villas scattered around the gardens, each with its own private terrace boasting a spectacular view of the coral-sheltered lagoon at L' Hermitage.

There is a huge swimming pool, volleyball and tennis courts in the gardens, and a great spa. Water sports such as kayaking and snorkelling are also available, and diving is second to none, with the coral-sheltered lagoon providing the perfect spot. There are also 2 golf courses nearby.

The hotel has a choice of 4 restaurants, ranging from international food in La Cuisine, to the informal La Plage on the beach. All 4 options serve delicious food with a notable Creole influence, and have an ever-changing menu.

LUX* St Gilles is the perfect choice for families. Their children's club PLAY caters for children between the ages of 3 and 12, educating them about the island's wildlife and surroundings, as well as a range of sports and outdoor activities, from art classes and treasure hunts to engaging and educational Teddy Tennis lessons. There are also especially designed family rooms.

Why we love it

Because this is the only resort to have direct access to the most beautiful beach of Réunion Island (L'Hermitage), a calm lagoon surrounded with a magnificent coral barrier
