The grand dame of Mauritius hotels, set on a private peninsula and offering impressive facilities.
This legendary hotel, perched on its own peninsula since 1975, One&Only Le Saint Géran is spellbinding, with sweeping grounds, a luminous sandy beach and famously warm service.
The rooms are amongst some of the most spacious in Mauritius (Villa One, the jewel in the crown, has its own private beach and chef), and well suited to multigenerational holidays. Families are brilliantly catered for with an excellent kids’ club and the One Tribe teens’ club offering everything from five-a-side football to canyoning at Tamarin Falls.
There are state-of-the-art fitness facilities and classes at Club One, plus snorkelling, kayaking, pedalos and unlimited water skiing. Five excellent dining options here, from steakhouse PRIME to Tapasake, the over-the-water Spanish-Asian fusion restaurant.
Take a long beach walk from One&Only Le Saint Géran to Trou d’Eau Douce.
Book ahead for the dining experience at Tapasake, as everyone wants to eat there.
Go for a sunset cocktail in the tiny floating bar at Constance Prince Maurice, reached along a romantic walkway through the Barachois.
