hotelsmauritius INTI, the first Argentinian-Peruvian restaurant in Mauritius throbs to Latin American music from late afternoon onwards — as dreamy for sundowners as after-dinner drinks. Atmospheric and inspired, a DJ sound tracks the Ceviche and Pisco Bar, while seafood and cocktails specialties are expertly prepared to whet your appetite for dinner in the lagoon-side garden.As a tribute to LUX*’s award-winning resort in Turkey, the Bodrum Blue at LUX* Grand Gaube serves seafood fresh from the Indian Ocean with excellent Turkish wines. The selection and variety of dishes inspired by Bodrum’s coastline have been prepared to perfection thanks to Bodrum’s Blue Turkish chef. Five Turkish wines have joined our Scrucap collection and they are only available at Bodrum Blue. Small groups can make suppers an extra special occasion by booking the Tastevin where the expert sommelier will delight all with the wisdom behind the wines. With the largest selection of prosecco and cider in the country and a unique selection of six craft, local and imported beers on tap, the Palm Court Bar is a place that has everyone relaxing. LUX* Grand Gaube has officially opened this month presenting its eclectic retro-chic style, by British born design guru Kelly Hoppen MBE, applied to Mauritian architect Jean-Francois Adam’s vision of contemporary, yet timeless, Indian Ocean living.With 186 rooms, including 89 suites and villas, the resort features six restaurants and seven bars — many of which are totally unique styles to Mauritius. The interactive open kitchen at the heart of Palm Court means guests can choose between favourite comfort foods or theatrical teppanyaki creations. Help yourself to salads, just-made sushi, house-made kombucha elixirs, gourmet smoked fish and cured meats, zingy curries, tandoor-baked naan breads and Sichuan or Cantonese stir-fries made right there. There’s home style Italian cooking too, including wood-fired pizzas, salt-crusted fish, crispy suckling pig and a rotisserie showcasing the juiciest cuts.
