Stay at Royal Palm
Unravel a side to Mauritius saved for the intrepid. Unearth a base full of beauty, nature and untapped charm. Situated in the folds of an ivory sand cove, your days at Royal Palm start with breakfasts in the company of dolphins. Enjoy a tranquil walk along the shore, before being whisked away on a tailormade heli flight or cruise to islands further north.The familiar song of bulbuls in the palms welcomes you upon your return. The calls follow as you head for your treatment with a Reiki master. They are joined by the lull of the waves as you sit down to dine later. Expect barefoot beach barbecues and candlelit dinners, followed by sundowners at the sunken bar or sommelier-led tastings in a hidden wine cave.
Tucked away in the far north of the island, the hotel is an hour and 15-minute drive from the airport. Alternatively, a chopper transfer takes just 20 minutes - you might as well enjoy the only helipad in the north. Vibrant Grand Baie is also a short walk away.
The property’s 69 sea-facing stays range from entry level Junior Suites to the more roomy 2-bedroom abodes. Interiors are elegant but cosy, with warm silk and velvet displays. However, all suites are housed in one building, so there are no villa or bungalow choices.
Who is it for
Couples and families alike will find all they need for a memorable trip. The refined quality of the grounds is especially suited for honeymooners, though those travelling with children will appreciate the spacious kids’ club with all its treats.
Facilities & activities
A serene pavilion-set spa, well-equipped gym and three pools, including an adults-only infinity pool make up the leisure facilities here. Extensive water activities, helicopter trips and bespoke cruises on the hotel’s 65ft yacht are also available. Three unique restaurants offer gastronomic flair amid gorgeous coastal backdrops.
