Sous le Badamier

Mauritius & Rodrigues

Rating: Modest    

Sous le Badamier overview

Sous le Badamier (previously known as Chez Vaco) offers friendly service in an intimate atmosphere near the popular village of Grand Baie in the north of the island. With just 12 guest rooms, this is a small lodge with a different feel to the large resort-style hotels to be found on Mauritius.

The rooms are simply furnished, light and airy, decorated in muted natural tones. All have air conditioning, ceiling fan, TV, safe, minibar and en-suite bathroom. The hotel has a small lounge area in the pretty courtyard garden where guests can relax and chat, with trees and plants and a little rock pool, the ideal place in which to enjoy a sundowner or cocktail. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner (and also open to the public for dinner) The chef specialises in local Mauritian creole dishes.

The nearest beach, Pointe aux Cannoniers, is just a 5 minute walk away, while the lovely beach of Mont Choissy, with its deckchairs and parasols, is a 5 minute bus ride from the hotel. A range of water sports can be enjoyed here, as well as diving and big game fishing. The guest house has its own catamaran, Harmonicat, and guests are welcome to join cruises to the northern islands. A pirogue is also available to take guests to local beaches and villages. Other activities that can be arranged locally include bicycle hire, massage, sauna, hammam and gym. Grand Baie is within easy reach on the opposite side of the bay, and has a range of restaurants, shops, bars and cafes.

Sous le Badamier is a great base from which to explore the northern region of Mauritius, including Port Louis, the botanical gardens and the aquarium.

Julie Croucher, Tribes

"This was something very different on Mauritius!  I really liked it - although the room was basic and the shower room tiny, the people were lovely and the setting of the bistro style cafe under the trees was lovely.  For the money, it's great value and if you are looking for a small guest house with access to local beaches and towns, then perfect.  Remember that is has no actual beach so you have to walk or drive a short way, though some of the rooms have sea views over the rooftops."
