– Lux* Ile De La Reunion – Réunion Island –
Most have never heard of Réunion Island, but it’s time they should. Tucked away in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar, southwest of Mauritius, this little French colony is the perfect blend of European, African and Asian influences. LUX* Ile de La Réunion is nestled in Saint Gilles lagoon, perfect for snorkeling, and boasts of four themed restaurants: Odyssée for Chinese, Indian, or Creole, Orangine for modern French, Clapotis for traditional island dining, and Le Pipangaille for light and fresh snacking. According to Rainbow Tours UK, “there are kayaks with which to explore the lagoon, tennis courts and table tennis facilities, a fully-equipped gym, massage facilities, bikes for hire, aqua-gym sessions and Tai-Chi-Chuan and Qi Qong courses. Diving and surfing, golf, windsurfing and paragliding are available nearby.” Sounds like a dream.
