The romantic calling of this 5-star intimate boutique hotel of 67 double rooms, nestled in a tropical garden with bushes of orangey and red Ixoras, multicoloured hibiscus and bougainvilleas, fragrant frangipani and flowery creepers along its pergolas, reveals itself as a haven of peace in an Indian atmosphere subtly brightened up with Mauritian exoticism.
The Oriental setting is inspired from Pondicherry, seat of the East Indies Company in the 18th century and famous for its fragrant essential oils; its carved, latticed precious woods and furniture, its rich silky fabrics in warm shades and hues of fuchsia, anise green and orange, turquoise blue and mauve, both in the guest rooms and the common spots.
50 sq. m on ground or first floor – are characterized by a sumptuous fuchsia or mauve lotus flower which seems to stick out of the cerused anise green or turquoise headboard of the king size bed in contrast with the cream walls and beige marbled floor. Indirect lighting enhances the vividly coloured silky cushions, the flimsy curtains draped along the ceiling and the wooden furniture – like this trunk treasure at the foot of the bed, this half-moon console desk below a huge mirror.
50 sq. m on 1st or 2nd floor – are the apex of romanticism. The bed nestled in a recess fitted with lateral mirrors lies against a fuchsia background fitted into carved and latticed wood. The draped flimsy curtains, the silky cushions in pink and green tones as well as a sumptuous Indian lamp hanging from the ceiling contribute a lot to the intimate and refined atmosphere of these rooms devoted to the idyllic celebration of love.
18 Junior suites
60 sq. m on ground and 1st floor – have a magnificent view over the cove and the beach. Elegant and roomy, they uncover an abundance of carved wood in the massive furniture and latticed walls as well as a daring mix of a yellow and orangey palette with turquoise blue silk cushions that wink to the giant red lotus engraved in the headboard. Flowing and transparent drapes dress up the headboard and the latticed wooden frame that divides the warm sitting area. The meticulous attention to detail and decorative objects of the Junior suites contributes to this intimate, cosy and romantic atmosphere.
2 Senior suites: Maharani & Maharajah
90 sq. m on ground floor – offer a more spacious bathroom and living room as well as and two terraces opening on the beach and the garden. Their rustic and colonial style rests on elegance and beauty. The warm colours – orange and fuchsia – stand out on the beige walls and marbled floors. The wooden furniture, like the double king size bed with pillars draped in flimsy silks, adds to an exotic setting enhanced by two huge mirrors that widen the perspective. The refined living area is ideal for a regal late afternoon tea… or pre-dinner drinks with guests just as the Maharani or Maharajah.
