Occupying a 60-acre site with three beaches and its own lagoon, this is arguably the most aesthetically beautiful of all the properties on Mauritius.
The suites have a colonial feel with polished teak floors, dark wooden Venetian blinds, louvred doors and hessian-lined ceilings. Some suites have indoor and outdoor bathrooms as well as two terraces over the lagoon, one with loungers to sleep on, the other with a table and chairs to eat at.
The service is excellent, and if you're lying on a sun-bed by the 120-foot pool for longer than about 10 minutes an attendant will bring you not just iced water and a towel, but an Evian spray to refresh your face. Lie on the beach mid-afternoon and someone will appear with a little tub of sorbet.
Opt for a treatment in the Guerlain spa, and find a bowl of ylang-ylang blossoms under the face cut-out on the massage table so that you have something to reflect on as you lie prone.
There are excellent facilities and activities on offer from diving and water-skiing to tennis, and the two restaurants serve delicious Mauritian-influenced and international cuisine.
