This incomparable and distinguished grandedame of Mauritius nestles serenely on its own private peninsula on the country’s north-east coast, with a white sand beach on one side and a sheltered lagoon on the other. Immortalised in Bernadin de Saint Pierre’s novel ‘Paul et Virginie’, the peninsula is close to the site of the historic Le Saint Géran shipwreck. Under the calm sway of countless coconut palms, One&Only Le Saint Géran’s 60 acres of glorious grounds encompass beautiful tropical gardens which sweep right down to the ocean’s edge.
Discreet luxury prevails throughout this all-suite haven which enjoys a timeless reputation for offering impeccable service and excellent cuisine. Naturally, all guests enjoy 24 hour butler service.
Exquisite taste and grand opulence seamlessly blend with state-of-the-art technology in each of the 162 Junior and Ocean Suites, all of which feature a private terrace or balcony facing either the ocean or the lagoon. The more spacious Ocean Suites also boast an expansive living and dining area – with the option to interconnect with an adjacent Junior Suite. A limited number of interconnecting Junior Suites are available too.
One&Only Le Saint Géran’s captivating relaxed elegance is complemented by a wide variety of facilities including the award-winning One&Only Spa (voted ‘Mauritius’ Leading Spa Resort’ by World Travel Awards in 2008) and the superb Fitness Centre. Between them, they combine an holistic approach to wellness with a range of personalised sports programmes uniquely designed to suit individual needs.
