Seapoint Boutique Hotel is in a quiet location on the northwest coast of Mauritius with a private beach facing the azure lagoon of Grand Bay. The hotel has been designed and decorated with great attention to detail and the result is a winning combination of paired-down style and easy barefoot living. Rooms and suites have whitewashed walls and furniture, with artworks and textiles in shades of turquoise and blue giving them a marine theme, further enhanced by the sea views. All are en-suite and have air conditioning, so the interior remains cool even on the hottest day. You have a supply of hot and cold drinks that you can enjoy sitting on your terrace. The 2-bedroomed villa is perfect for a family (children aged 12 and over) or group of friends, having a lounge with an entertainment centre and a BBQ area for private meals.
You have a choice of restaurants offering different dining experiences: Le Hublot is the archetypal fine dining establishment and the more casual Beach Restaurant has tables on the sand within a few feet of the sea. Each has its own bar where you can relax and mix with other guests. There are loungers and sunshades on the beach and by the infinity pool, with beach towels provided for lazy days. There are lots of activities should you wish, including kayaking, diving and catamaran cruises, with bikes available for exploring on dry land.
