The Sanctuary is a 600 m2 temple of relaxation dedicated to the well being of the body and the mind offering a wide choice of massages, custom-made programmes and treatments. More than a massage or sports centre, the Sanctuary offers a unique concept in Mauritius with its original environment taking its inspiration from “zen” philosophy and where every consideration is given to your particular need.
Our beauty and hair care has been designed by the prestigious French brand CARITA. This luxury French cosmetic brand has developed an exclusive concept called “Haute Beauté”, a reference to the elegance of the fashion term “Haute Couture”.
The ultimate in luxury: one of the nine cabins is located in the middle of a tropical garden overlooking the lagoon, where beauty treatments and massages are performed in the softness of the sea breeze.
The Dining Room – The restaurant is made entirely of wood and delicately positioned overlooking the pool. It is an open invitation to discover the thousand and one savours of a sophisticated cuisine. A sumptuous breakfast offers both Western and local specialities, as well as a selection of freshly squeezed fruit juices. The atmosphere of the restaurant and cuisine changes to an à la carte menu in the evening. The heady spices of Mauritius are combined with international recipes, producing a fusion of enticing flavors.
The Verandah – The lunch menu features a choice of exciting light dishes served around the pool overlooking the sea. An impressive selection of toasted sandwiches, oven cooked pizzas, generous salads and homemade ice creams are offered.
The Plantation – The marriage of a spectacular oceanfront setting with an original approach to the freshest seafood and Creole cuisine has made this restaurant one of the favorites of the island. At night, live Sega dancing performances and original local entertainment are provided several times a week. The restaurant is a planter’s house by the beach.
Inspired by a sugar-cane plantation house, The Planters Kids Club is nestled in a wondrous tropical park set just steps from the beach. Children from 3 to 12 can romp around the Club’s 400 square metres, free of charge, enjoying the conviviality of the house or the fun of the playgrounds in the surrounding gardens.
For the children’s delight, a creative and efficient team of professionals will supervise a wide choice of activities. The programme includes treasure hunts, snorkelling classes, sports competitions, face painting, hikes and picnics, glass-bottom boat tours, theme days, pony rides, and much more.
