Blue Margouillat is one of Réunion’s best boutique hotels, set on a hill with beautiful sunset views overlooking the Indian Ocean. It is a refreshing alternative to the majority of the larger hotels in the main towns of Saint Leu and Saint Gilles Les Bains.
The hotel is built in traditional Creole style and the setting is spectacular. With only 14 rooms made up of the standard sea view rooms and the Creole suites, this is a small and intimate hotel. The rooms are all simple and clean with private balconies benefiting from the spectacular views of the Indian Ocean.
The restaurant serves delicious food, made all the more spectacular with the added bonus of "that" view.
Facilities include a swimming pool, and the hotel can arrange massages in your room. The staff are all exceptionally friendly too.
This part of the island is known for its long stretches of beaches, fantastic diving, and numerous water sports such as surfing (there is a world-famous break at Saint Leu), and paragliding. Helicopter rides are also a great way to see the mountains behind.
