Coming in from Reunion Island in the morning, we took the easy drive up at the east side of the island (mostly little towns, gives a good first insight on Mauritius). Upon arrival we were welcomed by Vic (a lady whom would take excellent care of us), nice cocktail, efficient check in, amazing that this place gave us immediately the 'zen' effect we were looking for. The set up is very well thought off, beautifully decorated, with everywhere some nice places to sit and relax.
Our 'seaview' room was on the first floor and was really great and large with a huge bathroom, also a terrace with view on the bay, excellent bed, an amazing eye for detail, fresh flowers, fruit basket, in- and outdoor shower, you name it they've got it.. Very relaxing !!
During both nights we had dinner with them (half board) and they show you in a smart way the menu with what's included and what you can order on top (if). We had different experiences on both nights, first one was excellent , no remarks at all, the second night we had a few issues (one starter not what we ordered, 4 different waiters, which seemingly made it difficult for them to follow up on our dinner..) those things although can happen, just a shame that we only got appologized for it (with a gesture) at the end of the our stay, while although having mentioned this instantly to the resto management, we would rather have seen it the other way around.. Breakfast was plenty and excellent again..
While staying here we visited the pamplemousse botanical garden, nice to have a small walk, but further nothing special, much nicer is to go for a drive and look for a nice beach or just stay and relax in the hotel .. We did like especially the fact that they create everywhere and at every moment a classy relaxed atmosphere.
We would definitely recommend this place to every one looking for all what we mentioned above, the owners are present and notice everything, it's a beautiful boutique hotel and they're able to create a very romantic, classy and relaxed atmosphere. This place has 'IT' !
