The Mauritian Hotel Industry is grateful to PRINCE MAURICE who created the spice route, thus giving great impetus to the trade of "divine essences". It is after his name that our island was named Mauritius, which became the most favourite port of call of the Dutch, and which later on became the distribution centre of Asian spices, thanks to Pierre POIVRE. The allure of the Indian Ocean islands has grown far beyond the quest for spices, leading to a demand for more knowledge of this exotic region.
ACCOMMODATION : The setup of the hotel, only 88 suites in all includes 60 hectares and 4 beaches, provides for an unparalleled standard of service and care, uniquely personal, never familiar. The hotel is spread out along a sheltered coral sand beach and private lagoon. The suites are in two categories Senior and Junior. They are scattered along the pristine beach, in landscaped gardens, on waterways, and even suspended on site over the lagoon.
Elegant and natural building materials such as marble, wood and stone as well as an architecture allowing nature,water, space and light to create an atmosphere of comfort. This concept truly comes from Asian culture in its art of living embellished with the Mauritian's smile and hospitality. The service also depicts a new generation of luxury hotels.
Elegant and unrestrained, the service at LE PRINCE MAURICE reflects the tranquillity looked for a discerning clientèle.
The Senior Suites are detached villas, each with a conventional interior bathroom as well as a stylish exterior walled bathing area, a waterfall shower cascading into a jacuzzi bath, surrounded by pebble gardens and flowers.
Each Senior Suite has a large terrace and a private swimming pool.
Three of them are built on stilts, overlooking the calm lagoon.
||RESTAURANTS AND BARS : The entrance to the Hotel features a towering port-cochere, leading to the central lobby over bridges spanning palm-studded water displays. A pool stretches towards the lagoon, the waters seeming to blend one with the other. The Hotel has no reception area, or cashier's desk - guests are just that, and formalities are minimal and conducted privately
Signature shops and a tranquil library lead to an elegant lounge bar. This, in turn, leads to the restaurant, which is in three sections; each suspended over the pool, facing the lagoon. A unique floating restaurant provides serene views of the lagoon and the mountains against the setting sun, as guests enjoy freshly-prepared seafoods and grills.
