La Pirogue Resort & Spa, Mauritius

This excellent affordable four star plus resort on a stunning long white sand west coast beach, is very safe, with great sea swimming, and a fantastic dive centre – one of the islands best. It’s good for both families and couples who don’t want to stay somewhere too chi chi.


La Pirogue Resort and Spa

The La Pirogue resort is built in the style of a fishing village and set in very pretty tropical gardens, the single-story rustic-style rooms set in rondavel-type bungalows under sail-shaped thatch are sweet, if on the small side. Those who want twin beds need to book well ahead.


It has been recently refurbished, and dining taken up a notch, with Mauritian street food at lunchtime, seafood served in candlelit thatched kiosks on the beach and a new wine bar with a sommelier and private dining. It shares a Cinq Mondes Spa, offering treatments based on ancient healing traditions, with Sugar Beach Mauritius, next door.


It has an imaginative kids club, catering for children aged 2 to 11, and under-12s ‘stay, play and eat for free’ at the resort. The fully-equipped boathouse has complimentary kayaks, dinghies and wind surfers, and trips by glass-bottomed boat.

Susie suggests:


  • Take a lovely long walk along the four kilometre beach
  • Don’t miss the sunset, from the bar beside the beach
  • Wander into nearby Flic en Flac to some local colour
  • For divers, this is one of the islands’ top spots
