Acajou really is a hidden gem and one of those places I dont really feel I want to write about for selfish reasons - I want to keep it all to myself! There are only 5 wonderful huts in the grounds and they almost feel out of place in rural Grand Riviere they are that... chic! They are private, reasonably sized, but with a fabulous sundeck and hammock. The decor is what makes them so special - muslin drapped 4 poster bed, crisp white sheets and asian inspired accessories. The restaurant wasnt bad, a lovely setting but we recieved quite poor service (we waited 1/2hr to order a drink and over an hour for the food to arrive from ordering) and many of the items were off the menu. However, I must point out we went in low season and the restaurant was full with just one waitress - I think it was possibly an unexpectedly busy night so I would be willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and go again.
The staff can help you arrange a hike in the jungle to a great waterfall with a local guide from the conservation group - I thoroughly recommend it.
Ssssh, I have a feeling this place will be booked up for months once people get wind of it.......
