The hotel is a not only a great choice for couples, including honeymooners, but also for families with its inter-connecting rooms and villas.
The resort offers a range of excellent dining options from casual to more formal choices as well as private dining. A variety of water sports includes snorkelling, kayaks and paddle boards, although motorised activities such as jet-skis and parasailing are not permitted here as it's a marine park. The excellent spa provides a range of wellness treatments and Thai massage, while excursions around this quieter corner of Mauritius should not be overlooked, perhaps even a full day 'Electro Bike Discovery Tour'.

Fire. Salt', has grills and seafood; and Bon Manzer offers deli options based on organic and sustainable food.

For special occasions, a variety of private dining options include the wine cellar and secluded areas on the beach or in the tropical gardens.
