One&Only Le Saint Géran
For almost 50 years, One&Only Le Saint Géran has been setting the standard for luxury hotels not only in Mauritius, but across the globe, placing great emphasis on impeccable but warm hospitality, sumptuous design and unforgettable experiences. With a recent, multi-million-dollar makeover, this exclusive Mauritius resort has raised the bar yet again, and it is simply a privilege to stay here.
One&Only Le Saint Géran revels in an oceanfront location in northeast Mauritius, hemmed by nearly 2km of milky white beach lapped by serene turquoise seas. It’s a peaceful, secluded spot with 60 acres of lush gardens, palms and swimming pools, the height of Indian Ocean paradise. The best way to arrive is by luxury car from the airport, or on a 15-minute helicopter ride, getting a birds-eye-view of the island and marvelling at the beautiful One&Only from above.
After touching down, leave the outside world behind as you become immersed in a peaceful ambience, where smiling staff greet you and show you to your home for the coming days. Every nook and cranny is immaculate, evoking a hint of a colonial theme but with modern undertones and polished surfaces. Cool blue, dove grey and off-white characterise the hotel’s palette, drenching each space in plenty of natural light, including the exquisitely styled guestrooms that face the sea. Marble bathrooms, pillow and soap menus, coffee machines, and fresh fruit replenished daily are some of the considerate touches, while each room features an outdoor area – some more lavish than others. Villa One is the most exclusive of all, however, with a sparkling pool, two bedrooms with ensuites, indoor and outdoor kitchens, living spaces and private path to the beach, all strewn across 622sq m of space. Added perks are the services of a private chef, driver and butler, on-call 24 hours a day.
Tear yourself away from this decadent home-from-home to delight in the many wonders of One&Only Le Saint Géran. Sleep under the shade of palm trees on the beach, swim in one of the enticing pools (including an adults-only area), or head to any of the restaurants for lip-smacking cuisine, overseen by Michelin-star chef, Marc de Passorio. La Terrasse is an open-air, pergola-style restaurant next to the beach and pool, offering a wide range of dishes and drinks, catering to all tastes. Come evening, La Terrasse becomes a lively haunt with music (dancing is encouraged!). There’s also Asian fare to savour at Tapasake, seafood at pool bar La Pointe, and a high-end steakhouse, PRIME. A café and lounge bar round off the gourmet experience at One&Only Le Saint Géran, though of course there’s always the chance to enjoy private dining at a location of your choice.
Let the indulgence continue at the hotel’s spa, or get the adrenalin pumping with some watersports – the Boat House has a lot to offer action-seeking guests. There are also tennis and padel courts, a gym and fitness classes, and the children aren’t left behind either, with a fantastic kids’ club and teen hub that will have them making friends in no time. One&Only Le Saint Géran has thought of everything for families, couples, honeymooners – anyone who wants a quintessential Indian Ocean getaway, but with the incredible service and touch that makes this Mauritius resort really stand out.
