On a peaceful peninsula, not frequented by locals, it offers good sea swimming and a wide array of sports. It has two freshwater pools, tennis, water skiing (from a platform in the ocean), wind surfing, laser sailing and scuba diving and game fishing. An 18-hole golf course is set against the backdrop of Le Morne Mountain, and spread along the coastline. The kids club is open until 11pm, and there’s a teens club in high season.
There are many dining options here, with eight restaurants including those at Dinarobin Beachcomber next door. At Paradis, the beachfront Le Blue Marlin specialises in seafood, while La Ravanne is a real Mauritian experience – offering local Creole cooking under candelit thatched gazebos in the sand.
This resort offers a wide range of accommodation with 286 sea or garden facing rooms and suites in low rise buildings under thatch in the tropical gardens. Newest and most modern are the Ocean rooms and suites, including attractive new Ocean Beachfront Family suites. The recently-refurbished beachfront Executive Villas are private with beautiful wooden floors, spacious marble bathrooms and clever lighting and a magnificent thatch roofed terrace for dining alfresco. The four bedroom Presidential Villa has its own private plunge pool.
