Situated high up in the hills above the eastern coast of Reunion, this is a newly opened boutique lodge in a stunning setting.

Isabel and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

At 1800ft above sea level, the drive up to the lodge is part and parcel of the experience, with the lush vegetation and panoramic views of the coast below. On arrival the electric gates may appear out of place, and it feels slightly like entering Jurassic Park, however they are only there to keep in the deer which roam freely in the grounds.

The lodge is made from local materials such as wood and stone, and has a total of 32 rooms. All are very modern and comfortable with open plan bedrooms/bathrooms, the bathtubs are positioned to make the most of the views of the hills and Indian Ocean. Each room also has a covered terrace or balcony.

The restaurant serves seriously good food - a mixture of French (of course) and Creole cuisine. It is a gastronomic treat with a constantly changing menu.

Facilities at the hotel include a library, a bar and lounge with huge wood burning stove and stylish furniture, a small but perfectly formed spa with hammam as well as a heated outdoor swimming pool, and a billiards room.
