Located in the sheltered north west of Mauritius, Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury sits on a pristine white beach just a stone’s throw from Grand Baie, and is one of the most exclusive hotels on the island.
Isabel is here to help give you the inside track.
Accommodation is comprised of 57 junior suites, and a further 27 suites, including Tropical, Presidential, Royal, Palm, Garden, Senior and Penthouse. All have fantastic views over either the gardens or ocean, have private terraces, and are decorated in an elegant yet understated Mauritian style, with all of the mod cons of a luxury hotel.
There are three dining options at Royal Palm - Le Bar Plage, Le Natureaty and La Goélette. La Goélette combines international expertise with local produce and has a romantic terrace with fantastic views, Le Natureaty focuses on Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, and Le Bar Plage is the perfect spot to grab a light lunch and soak up the Mauritian atmosphere. Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury is renowned for its impeccable service, which is no more visible than at the three restaurants.
The Clarins Spa is set amongst lush vegetation, and the individual cabins are all made from stone, granite and wood so as to blend in with the natural surroundings. Large bay windows let the natural light flow in, and each cabin has a private terrace for outdoor treatments. Yoga is also available.
For the more active minded, there are tennis courts, a gym and numerous watersports available, such as snorkelling, windsurfing and sailing, as well as bottom glass boat tours and deep sea fishing. The hotel's PADI centre is just ten minutes from the hotel, so both beginners and the more experienced divers can explore the ancient wrecks and pristine reefs.
