An enticing combination of inland and and ocean-side locations on the tropical island of Mauritius.
A chance to experience two different sides of Mauritius, the unspoilt interior and the beautiful coast.
Planting indigenous trees, being aware of water & energy usage, and taking care of staff all helped this owner-run lodge gain our 3 globe award.
"Resort was amazing, we had a lovely private cabin and went on some great walks. Loved the out door shower. The staff however made the place particularly special. They really made you feel special. Fell in love with Rowan\'s smile."
