LUX* Saint Gilles is the only luxury resort to have direct access to the beautiful L’Hermitage beach with its calm coral-sheltered lagoon that’s perfectly safe for swimming. Dining here is authentic, and fresh seafood is a specialty. La Cuisine is the main restaurant, offering international cuisine alongside local dishes. Orangine, the signature restaurant, is a more intimate venue with modern décor, serving up gourmet dishes accompanied by the finest of South African wines. For traditional Creole dining that can be washed down by vanilla-flavoured rum on a lagoonside deck, there’s La Plage. At Café LUX* a barista serves the resort’s own ‘island blend’ brand of coffee.
