Architecture arch white mansion Villa Resort plant Modern stone


A luxury modern resort with impressive fashion credentials on Mauritius’s untamed south coast.

The Look

Zany: Designed by Thai architect Lek Bunnag and Japanese fashion designer Kenzo Takada, the 34-acre resort is home to a floating spa, a moated space age restaurant and a knife-shaped swimming pool with views of the booming surf from the tip.

Bed and Bath

Lime-colored leather beds, shiny limestone surfaces and tropical accents set the tone in the spacious guestrooms. All feature private gardens leading down to the white sand beach, and they’re teeming with technology: Press a privacy button and a screen descends from the ceiling, dividing the bed and bath areas. The bathrooms are stocked with Kenzo products and feature indoor and outdoor waterfall showers, and beyond the patio doors, sunken tubs fringed by exotic greenery beg to be lounged in for hours.


Asian-inspired restaurant Flamboyant is perched on a moat and glows with floor-to-ceiling blue lamps; overlooking the pool, it serves French/Mauritian fare (curried ruby snapper, croaker fish). Beachfront La Plage is a good spot for lunch (seared gambas, catch of the day). There’s also a gym, tennis courts and a kids club on-site. Thémaé products are used in the hillside So Spa, a small but perfectly designed space where the signature treatment is acupuncture using gold needles.

The time spent at the resort was brilliant. The place is awesome, makes you feel so zen - very green & peaceful. However would have liked more proactiveness from the hotel to organise some activities & games. The food was incredibly good with acceptable variety. Spa provided us an unforgettable experience and my children loved the kids club. Staff was immensely helpful, always made themselves easily reachable to support - particular mention to Manisha, Krishna, Anastasia and Brenda.
Recommend it to all.

Vacation trip

Restaurant service is poor

Landscape is good
Room design is not practical at all
The hotel management is poor
The cleanness is poor
The furniture is old
Many insects in the room
The staff are friendly but no hotel service experience
I give the hotel 3 star rating and I not recommend for luxury staying for vacation
???? It is not a Sofitel mirror of management and service
