Make sure you try the Creole dishes prepared on an open fire grill at Clapotis.
If you haven’t heard of Reunion Island, then take a moment to kick yourself. Done? Good. East of Mauritius, this French-governed island is like paradise with a fashionable pedigree. The colonial aesthetic lives on in the hotel's grand lobby, featuring large white pillars and a surrounding inner balcony.
Simply swim in the pool, or get a bit more interesting with a snorkel in the lagoon, where coral and those breathing through gills welcome your respectful gaze. Once you're finished your foray into the deep, pop up, dry off, and hop the shuttle to Basin Bleu for a few rounds of golf.
When on vacation, most travelers like to indulge their appetites, and why not? LUX* Ile de La Réunion agrees, and has provided ample opportunity in four themes: Odyssée for Chinese, Indian, or Creole, Orangine for modern French, Clapotis for traditional island dining, and Le Pipangaille for light and fresh snacking.
At the end of the day, it will be your room that really matters. With 174 to choose from, the rooms and suites at LUX* Ile de La Réunion offer a plethora of modern design influences, all looking out to lagoon or garden.
Why is it called Reunion Island? That's a long story, but you'll surely want to reunite here again.
