Located on the western coast of the lush volcanic Réunion Island, Lux 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. Each guest room and suite has been carefully designed to combine the best of colonial elegance with genuine island charm. Stroll through fragrant gardens of bougainvillea and hibiscus to find idyllic white-washed Creole villas. Step inside onto the cool slate floor and take in the subtle lighting with thoughtful touches of finely crafted fabrics and furnishings.
The white-sand beach may call for idle lounging by the emerald-blue pool but there’s also plenty for thrill-seekers. 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.
