LUX* GRAND GAUBE REIMAGINED Mauritius gets a retro-chic tropical retreat and wellness centre like no other Creative duo KELLY HOPPEN MBE and Mauritian architect JEAN-FRANCOIS ADAM have reinvented this fresh-spirited luxury resort and spa. In doing so they have introduced an innovative approach to style and hospitality to Mauritius. Re-opening at the end of the year on the African island’s northern coast, edging the private bay are two beaches, tropical gardens, brand new forward-thinking restaurants and sociable bars, 186 bedrooms and suites, a luxe-for-less boutique, and an indoor cinema for movie screenings and sporting events. Thanks to thoughtful touches and residential-feel interiors from the award-winning design studio and leading architect, the easy, breezy spirit of multicultural Mauritius will be inspiring in an entirely new way. Exclusive launch rates available for this five-star LUX* resort for bookings made by 30 November 2017 Heaven was modelled on Mauritius — at least, according to the writer Mark Twain — and the lush greenery and gently lapping shallow lagoon waters of Grand Gaube would have you believing this. The sheltered north-facing resort has been cleverly remodelled to greet arriving guests with a staggering, uninterrupted view of the Indian Ocean as well as the offshore islands. No stone of the former building has been left unturned as part of the US$32 million renovations, while the natural setting has been preserved — wild flowers still scent the lovingly tended gardens and the postcard-perfect scenes are sound-tracked by layers of birdsong. Reborn with a fresh, flirty, smile-inspiring personality The British designer has dressed the resort in timeless understated glamour. Channelling fond memories of favourite holidays in Cape Town, Capri, Mallorca and Antigua, and having fallen for the energy of Grand Gaube itself, Kelly Hoppen has created a feel-good factor that no other Indian Ocean destination has known. By gently layering every look with tactile ceramics, hand-picked accessories, vintage rattan and residential quality soft furnishings, Kelly Hoppen’s designs breathe uplifting style and soul into every space, while inviting nature inside, wherever possible. Artist flair is also on the agenda at LUX* Grand Gaube. French street-artist Jace will be sharing his famous Gouzou illustration around the resort prompting the chance to play ‘Gouzou Spotting’; London-based French artist Camille Walala is painting original murals — her much-Instagrammed brightly-coloured designs grace walls from Melbourne to Manhattan, and now Mauritius. Jean-Francois Adam’s ambition for LUX* Grand Gaube has been to design comfortable tropical living through contemporary spaces. The architect’s method is to think and rethink projects to ensure that volumes are generous, lines are precise and style is unpretentious. Convinced that architecture has a heart and a soul, he unites artistic talent with rational mind to bring life to his designs. For him, it all starts with a sound understanding of the site’s characteristics and constraints to identify what constitutes its spirit. ROMANTIC BEDROOMS AND SUITES Step from every sea-view bedroom onto peaceful terraces, some with outdoor baths or sundecks edged by soft, soft sand. All eight room categories are fitted with LUX* Sleeptight mattresses, silky soft linens and pillows, robes and slippers— all designed for extreme comfort and the best night’s sleep you’ll ever have. Huge doors treat the living spaces to lots of natural light and generous wardrobe and dressing space enhances the loft-style feel. Spindrift-white bedrooms are enhanced with details like hand-painted navy-blue lines and unexpected home-from-home touches, such as succulents in ceramic pots. Handwoven African baskets, wicker tables and smooth floors ensure all bedrooms are as comfortable as can be. Geometric encaustic tiles add graphic-design personality to ensuites, and many bathrooms have reclaimed bespoke Victorian bathtubs. The top-level accommodation is the signature two-bedroom LUX* Villa, which sleeps a family of four in a beautiful blend of original, modern styling and classic retro chic. WELL-GROOMED GROUNDS IN A DISTINCTLY AFRICAN SETTING Framed by fruit trees and filao pine trees, the sweeping driveway to the hotel traces the north-east coastline — to the east you can see the local fishermen’s boats coming in with their fresh daily catch. Chelsea Flower Show winner Stephen Woodhams has designed LUX* Grand Gaube’s meticulous gardens. Alive with yellow, orange and pink bougainvillea, the many tree species include the eccentrically shaped evergreen araucaria, which are mini monkey-puzzle pines and impressive grand banyans with dangling lianas that come alive with the sound of many birds that find their nesting place within. Walk towards the jetty, past pretty yellow tecoma flowers and see wind-swept wild grasses sprouting up between the dramatic black volcanic rocks. Poudre d’Or is the name of a village in Mauritius, and translates from French as ‘powdered gold’ and this is how best to describe the soft sand of the beach at LUX* Grand Gaube. REMARKABLE RESTAURANTS AND BARS As always, there’s a Café LUX* at the heart of the resort, and here it’s in lieu of a lobby. Coffee connoisseurs are invited to follow the aroma of LUX* ethically-sourced, freshly ground LUX* exclusive Island-blend coffee from Belle Mare, where our house-roasted beans are masterfully made into specialist brews. Our baristas keep up with all the latest trends and techniques including cold press, pour-overs and nitro coffees. Atmospheric and entertaining eatery space Palm Court is the frond-filled masterpiece of this intimate, restyled boutique resort. Here, everyone has that perfect table overlooking the ocean, and no two meals feel the same. An indoor-outdoor restaurant where every seat feels alfresco, and cosy banquettes, or even the option of sitting and dining at the kitchen counter and watch the chef in action. Be it breakfast or dinner, pick from sizzling special kitchens, and pile your plate with freshly steamed dim sum or Mediterranean tapas — flamboyant serving stations satisfy the wildest cravings. The interactive open kitchen at the centre doesn’t make guests choose between favourite comfort-food classics or theatrical teppanyaki creations – it’s all there for the taking in one sitting. Stick to healthy eating intentions with ease and enthusiasm thanks to an award-winning team of chefs carefully sourcing the best nourishing ingredients — help-yourself salads, just-made sushi, house-made kombucha elixirs and gourmet smoked fish and cured meats await. Take your senses to Asia for zingy curries, and 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. 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 with craft, local and imported beers on tap, the Palm Court Bar promises to be a place which has everyone feeling exactly how they hope to on holiday. Follow a sandy path to the gigantic sprawling banyan tree. Enveloped by nature, an authentic Creole Smokehouse tempts with cured fish and meat; either cooked on charcoal or from an amazing smoker from the USA, while a shaded wooden shack “BB’s” perfects the art of the burger. Added to this irresistible island-feel experience is this mesmerising Rum Treehouse with a selection of no more than 88 varieties of rums celebrating the flavours of the sugar island. Order inventive rum cocktails blended to perfection by tugging on the cabana-style rope which leads to a bartender waiting below. Quench thirst at the quirky Citroën H van-converted-pop-up bar, nicknamed French Kiss. It’s a first you’ll always remember. Bodrum Blue is the authentic Turkish restaurant on its own micro peninsula, with Levantine mezzes and succulent kebabs and flat breads. The selection and variety of dishes are inspired from Bodrum’s coastline and the vibrant capital. The authentic feel and flavours of this restaurant are thanks to having a Turkish chef and ingredients brought in from Istanbul weekly. There’s a lounge overlooking the lagoon with the best sunset view and a shisha corner. Five Turkish wines have joined our Scrucap collection and they are only available at Bodrum Blue. Peruvian-Argentinian delicacies await at INTI — meaning the god of sun — the country’s first Peruvian-Argentinian restaurant which promises Latin American passion along with refined Nikkei flair and a seriously exciting bar. The Ceviche and Pisco Bar has a live DJ every night, and an Argentinian chef beings the spirit of South America to these shores. The first Peruvian-Argentinian eatery in the Indian Ocean, the ingredients have been brought in especially for INTI. The outdoor garden overlooks the beach and lagoon — the perfect spot for an aperitivo or an after-dinner chill. Cuisine is influenced by Peru, Argentina, Japan, Equador and Mexico. Bury sun-kissed feet in the sand at Beach Rouge as you pause for a relaxed lunch or a romantic dinner at the water’s edge. The menu shows off seafood to sirloin cooked in the Josper oven, while pizzas rival Italy’s finest thanks to the secret-recipe specially set-aside dough. On a sunny day, stroll here from the sea or the swimming pool, settle into a table under the shade for a long, lazy lunch or brunch with chilled drinks in a convivial atmosphere. Sunset is a spectacle as the pastel colours of the Mauritian sky beg to be toasted with mixologist-made concoctions while a DJ fine-tunes the soundscape. As dinnertime rolls into after-hours, the tempo takes it up a notch, and the dynamic beach club reveals its party-loving side. Wine experiences aplenty await at LUX* Grand Gaube. The spirit of discovery is assured from the impressive selection available to try before you buy — guests don’t need to order a whole bottle of wine thanks to the Enomatic® wine dispenser system. Have a taste, match your mood to exactly the right grape and make an informed choice on what you fill your glass with. “It’s with huge enthusiasm and passion that we’ve created an entirely new resort at LUX* Grand Gaube unlike anything else on the island. Set in sprawling tropical gardens created by award-winning landscape designer, Stephen Woodhams, we’re thrilled to unveil a fresh new perspective on Mauritius. Kelly Hoppen’s vision of eclectic retro-chic is effortlessly sophisticated and blissfully informal. Two beaches, a calm lagoon and the Indian Ocean never more than a few steps away — the resort encourages exploration and the discovery of swaying hammocks and secluded shady spots for time alone or together. Luxury today should mean a sense of freedom and personal space; our reimagined resort has innovation at its core, along with five new surprise Reasons to Go LUX* that awaits our guests upon opening of the resort. More important are the 500 team members who are eager to share the best of themselves to ensure that they help all our guests celebrate life.” — Brice Lunot, General Manager, LUX* Grand Gaube. A NEW WORLD OF WELLNESS & FITNESS Connecting guests with nature, this spacious new-generation LUX* Me spa tunes visitors into the paradisiac setting while bespoke therapies and specially tailored treatments work their magic.

Don’t let the rows of pretty bottles suggest this is just a place of pampering – the signature blends of natural plant oils and flower essences ease tension, soothe mind and body, and give a wellbeing boost. Then take home some of that LUX* Me aromatherapy. THE GOLF EXPERIENCE LUX* Grand Gaube offers a spectacular sea facing driving range, a putting green and a fully equipped Pro Shop. Consulting and perfecting your golfing skills is taught by the resort Golf Coach, Vickam, who is as knowledgeable as he is friendly. The resort has partnered with Mauritius latest edition golf course, the Mont Choisy 18-hole world-class golf course designed by Peter Matkovich for exclusive packages; only 15 minutes from LUX* Grand Gaube.

EXPLORE MAURITIUS Look north, towards Coin de Mire, and make out the silhouette of five uninhabited islands where the diving and snorkelling promises a spectacular experience and the marine life is extraordinary. Drive from the north-east’s sweeping white sandy coastline to the untamed Unesco-protected parkland of the south and pass scenes of brightly painted temples, botanical gardens and colonial mansions punctuated by arrowing sugarcane fields. Dramatic rock formations make up the volcanic mountainscape of this African island where the geography is fascinating. Little wonder pirates once plundered those that prospered from the fertile lands of L’île Maurice (as it’s known in French) and today this island’s population is a bouillabaisse of friendly Indian, Creole, Chinese and French people. “Working together with a team of world class professionals, we have been inspired to create a unique destination for those who seek simplicity and kindness.

Best Ecotourism Holiday Destination in Sikkim Holidays Package for Sikkim Sikkim is a land of dramatic contours. Rugged mountains, deep valleys and dense forests consort with raging rivers, lakes and waterfalls to create a visual feast. The state has the steepest rise in altitude over the shortest distance and has within its 7, 096 sq. kms the entire climatic range, from tropical to temperate to alpine. The mountain chains which run southwards from the main Himalayan range form the natural boundaries of Sikkim; the Chola range dividing it from Tibet in the Northeast and Bhutan in the Southeast, the Singalila range separating it from Nepal in the West with the Greater Himalayan range forming the barrier between Sikkim and Tibet in the North. Sikkim Traveller Located between these towering mountain ranges are passes like Nathu-la, Jelep-la, Cho-la and many others which were at one time important corridors of passage between Sikkim and Tibet. Floating high over the cloud-covered lower Himalaya, Mt. Khangchendzonga dominates the landscape of Sikkim. At 28, 208 ft is the third highest mountain in the world and the highest in India. Sikkim Valley Sikkim has two main rivers, the Teesta and the Rangeet, both of which are formed at high altitudes and flow in a generally southern direction till they converge at the confluence near Melli. The source of the Teesta is the pristine Cho Lhamu Lake in North Sikkim. From here the river travels downwards to meet Zemu Chu just above Lachen village and the Lhachung Chu at Chungthang. At Mangan, the river is joined by the Talung Chu as it continues its journey down, finally widening at Singtam to become double its width. Further down at Melli, the Teesta merges with the river Rangeet which is born of the Rathong glacier in West Sikkim before entering the plains of North Bengal and eventually joining Brahmaputra in Bangladesh.
Egypt - Tales of the two cities of the Ancient Wonders !! Egypt is one of those countries which contains one of the age -old civilizations in the world. it is a delight, for the history buffs as well as for the others, to contemplate the ancient architecture and get woven into the ancient tales of the kings & queens & pharaohs & sphinx. Luxor and Aswan are the two cities which consist of the ancient temples and give a major part toward understanding the ancient Egypt civilization. Let’s start our journey.. Luxor, which was once known as Thebes (the capital of Ancient Egypt) is located in Southern Egypt- 670 km South of Cairo. Luxor today is a city of around 150, 000 people. This city is prominent for being an “open air museum” because of its unique archaeological monuments.Luxor is the second most visited tourist city in Egypt after Cairo. Extravagant monuments such as Karnak Temple, The Luxor Temple, Valley of Kings, Valley of Queens and many more are the reason for this. The Karnak Temple Complex (which was known as Ipet-isut during the time of the Pharaohs) is the most famous temple in Luxor. It was built by the pharaohs for over 2000 years and was dedicated to the Pharaoh Amun. What makes this temple unique is the fact that around 30 Pharaohs contributed to it, which made it reach a size and diversity not seen in any other temple in the world. The Karnak consists of four main parts, but only one of them is accessible to tourists. It entails some of the most luxurious examples of Ancient Egyptian design and architecture. In addition, there are also several performances of the sound and light shows at night, which is simply a show which platforms the monument using audio and visual effects. The Luxor Temple is amongst one of the beauties of Luxor. It is a large ancient temple complex located on the East bank of the Nile River. Amanhotep II and Ramses II built it in 14000 B.C. Built with sandstone, this temple’s main purpose was to celebrate the Festival of Opet. This festival was by far the largest and most important celebration by the Pharaohs. It was held in honor of the great Pharaoh Amun in the season of flood. The Valley of Kings (also known as Biban El Melouk) is situated in the ancient site of Thebes. It was the burial place of Egypt’s New Kingdom Rulers. The tomb of Tutankhamun (King Tut) that was discovered in the 1920’s is located there. In addition there is also a Valley of Queens, which is the place where the wives of the Pharaohs were buried. It was originally called Ta-Set-Neferu, which means “the place of the children of the pharaohs” because along with the Queens there were also princes and princesses buried there. The legendary Queen Nefertiti’s tomb lies in The Valley of Queens.One of the must-do activities in Luxor is going on a hot air balloon ride and discovering the city ‘s most prominent monuments from up above.Another activity carried by most tourists visiting the city of Luxor is going on a Nile boat cruise from Luxor to Aswan. Enjoy a lavish Nile River cruise and discover some of Egypt’s most enchanting natural beauty. Aswan, (previously known as Syene during Ancient Egypt) is located about 81 KM south of Luxor. This small modern city has a population of about 230, 000 people who are mostly Nubians. (People of an ancient region of Northeastern Africa).Aswan is distinctively embellished for having a beautiful setting on the Nile.You can begin your day in Aswan by going on a relaxing tour on a Felluca (which is a wooden sail boat) on the Nile River.The two islands you must visit are the Elephantine Island and the Botanical Garden Island. Elephantine Island is the biggest island there and its history goes all the way back to the pre-dynastic period. It was the place where ancient Egyptians first resided when they first settled in the area. There are many attractions in this Island Such as The Nilometer, the Philae Museum and the Temple of Khunum.The Botanical Garden is by far considered a natural treasure by the people of Aswan. The history of this Garden goes all the way back to the 1890s. The island was given to Lord Horatio Kitchener when he was commander of the Egyptian army. Kitchener had a tremendous passion for plants and palm trees so he turned this island into a botanical garden.In this garden you can find a vast variety of plantations and trees that were found naturally on the island. In addition, there are also a wide number of extremely rare trees such as the Royal Palm Tree, The Sabal Palm Tree and the Pam tree. Located near Aswan is the famous High Dam of Egypt. Built in around the 1960’s this dam is considered to be an engineering miracle as it provides electricity and irrigation for the entire nation of Egypt. Take a walk through Egypt’s major historical monuments and make your visit to Luxor and Aswan an unforgettable history lesson on Egypt’s most ancient cities. The best time to visit these two cities would be during the winter as the weather during that time is extremely awesome.
A Very Happy Dhanteras To All !! On Dhanteras, Lakshmi - the Goddess of wealth - is worshiped to provide prosperity and well being. It is also the day for celebrating wealth, as the word 'Dhan' literally means wealth and 'Tera' comes from the date 13th. In the evening, the lamp is lit and Dhan-Lakshmi is welcomed into the house. Alpana or Rangoli designs are drawn on pathways including the goddess' footprints to mark the arrival of Lakshmi. Aartis or devotional hymns are sung eulogizing Goddess Lakshmi and sweets and fruits are offered to her. Hindus also worship Lord Kuber as the treasurer of wealth and bestower of riches, along with Goddess Lakshmi on Dhanteras. This custom of worshiping Lakshmi and Kuber together is in the prospect of doubling the benefits of such prayers. People flock to the jewelers and buy gold or silver jewelry or utensils to venerate the occasion of Dhanteras. Many wear new clothes and wear jewelry as they light the first lamp of Diwali.
