“Beautiful location, stunning room.”
Reviewed July 5, 2009

This hotel was almost fantastic but just missed the mark in a few small ways which just took the edge off our enjoyment.
The hotel was having building work carried out during June and when we arrived on July 1st things were not quite finished. This did not really affect us much but we think that is why the mood of the place was not completely relaxed, the staff seemed harried and ill at ease which obviously passed on to us.
We were put in a beautiful room with it's own (very cold) pool and perfect privacy. However the romance of paired outdoor showers faded once it got dark, and a bit chilly. There was no bath or shower indoors so we had to rev ourselves up to dive outside to wash. The water pressure and heat was not quite enough to make it comfortable.
The other odd thing was that we had no way to contact the main hotel, 5 minutes walk away. A bit of a pain when the power goes off and we were unsure what was going on, or if you wanted to check meal times. The room also had no info on the hotels facilities, we never did find out whether the sauna and massage suite was operational, or local attractions. This was the first hotel we came across that charged for internet access.
We enjoyed the food, it was a very high standard.

We spent , my wife and me, 7 nights at the lodge. We decided not to choose a beach hotel but rather an exotic and exclusive lodge with nice surrounding , out of the buzz of the beach. Laka Chamarel is a perfect choice.

The site ( 8 ha ) is covered with various trees including palm trees, bananas trees and all sort of local type of vegetation. When you arrive , it is really breath taking.

Rooms ar individual small bungallow decorated with exotic furniture in a very rafinate manner. Especillay interesting is the possibility to take a shower under the moon surrounded by palm trees !

Cooking is made by a french cook and very fine and well balanced. Every evening is a new discovery.
Breakfast includes also all sort of local fruits.

Last but not least , personnel is very friendly and makes you feel as at home.

Chamarel, in addition , is a nice place to wander around ( trekking, biking, ... ).

Finally, price is cheap for the overall very good quality.

We really recommend this place for people looking an exclusive lodge in a quiet place out of noise and buzz of the noth west area of the island.

We stayed here for 4 days at the beginning of our Mauritiun holiday. We wanted to find a hotel removed from the big 5 star commercial resorts that would give us an authentic Mauritian experience and we were NOT dissapointed.

After traipsing through the internet for weeks i stumbled across this hotel on a french hotel site and what a hidden gem! Down the south of the island this hotel is nestled up in the mountainside above the Morne peninsuala. We were met at the airport and driven about 40 mintues to the hotel. The hotel was set up by a French couple who have spent their lives managing and running some of the islands top hotels in Mauritius. The hotel consists of a main house where the restaurant is on a deck overlooking a large lake at the bottom of the valley. The rooms are a mix of little bungalows scattered througout their maincured tropical gardens. We took the Namaste suite which was sublime. We were away from the main house (ideal for a honeymoon) overlooking a beautiful pool and wonderful gardens.

Food was delicous and coudlnt be faulted. The hotel organised a guide to show us around the local waterfalls one day which was very special and another to take us the quick 15 mintues down to "Le Morne" beach for a swim. Following this hotel we finished our trip in one of the 5 star hotels at the north of the island. In relfection i wish we had stayed at Lakaz Chamarel as it was so much more lovely and authentic. This hotel should be a MUST for anyone going to Mauritius.

  • Liked — The location and tropical gardens it sits in - like Paradise
