Located on Grand Baie on the north-west coast of Mauritius, Royal Palm ranks as one of the most exclusive and luxurious hotels in the Indian Ocean.
With discreet and refined luxury and attentive and personalised service, Royal Palm offers accommodation in eighty four exquisite suites, all presented in sophisticated décor and furniture. Each suite from the imperious Presidential Suite to the expansive Junior Suites has been allocated its own perfect position with views towards the calm crystal waters of Grand Baie and their own private terrace or balcony. They are designed so that no one suite overlooks another, thus ensuring the ultimate in privacy. All suites feature, as standard, air conditioning, en suite bathroom with separate shower and separate toilet, walk in wardrobe and king size or twin beds. The amenities are further enhanced by a mini-bar, safe, satellite television and 24 hour full room service.
For the ultimate in space and luxury, the Royal Palm boasts an outstanding two-storey Royal Suite. In addition to three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a living room, the Royal Suite offers a private garden, magnificent terrace and private pool.
Amongst its many other notable recommendations, Royal Palm hosts one of the finest tables in the Indian Ocean, constantly maintaining the highest gastronomic standards. From breakfast to dinner, the hotel’s distinguished chefs will treat you to an inventive menu featuring local fresh products and seafood, European cuisine and Mauritian delights. The hotel’s two dining options, La Goelette and The Beach restaurant, both occupy unique locations with the former overlooking the bay and the latter set among tropical gardens.
While the pristine beach is just a few short steps away, further recreational facilities are available including a fully equipped gym, a Maghreb-style spa, squash and tennis, a ’miniclub’ (where guests can deposit their children), water-skiing and pedalos. Guests can also hire a sleek royal-blue speedboat for excursions to neighbouring islands.
Royal Palm is located close to the fashionable village of Grand Baie, which is known for its designer boutiques, art galleries, smart coffee shops and trendy restaurants and bars. Shops in the village specialise in stylish beachwear, ceramics and art, cashmere garments and oriental carpets. Grand Baie is the leaving point for many excursions by boat including a day sailing on a giant catamaran to islands off the north coast, where snorkelling and diving can reveal many rare species. Special trips either by coach or private car can be arranged to the island’s popular attractions. For an extra thrill take a helicopter ride over the island.
