LUX* Ile de La Reunion

Introduction: LUX* Ile de La Reunion is one of the only two 5-star hotels in the French Indian Ocean island of Reunion. The LUX* chain has done a great job with this colonial-styled property, although the service, of course, can’t compete with destinations with massive tourism. It is a bit slow as you would expect, but the beach and the property itself make it a great experience, I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Reunion.
