Set on the silky sands of the celebrated Trou aux Biches on Mauritius’s north-west coast, this small boutique hotel offers breath-taking vistas and direct beach access from each of its sea-facing suites. Its über-contemporary look blends natural materials and colours in a tasteful expression of seaside elegance. A selection of sleek bars and a first-rate restaurant cater to your wining-and-dining needs while the hotel's spa treatment room offers massages to relax you completely. An array of complimentary water sports are offered while sun worshipping on the beach or around the sparkling pool is never without the attentive service of friendly staff.

Stepping onto the terrace on your suite, you are awed by uninterrupted sea-and-sand views of Trou aux Biches – every beachcomber’s nirvana and the most-photographed beach in Mauritius. Order a champagne breakfast from the á la carte restaurant to relish with your loved one in the crisp linen of your king-sized bed. Weighing up the exciting possibilities for the day’s schedule, take a picturesque glass-bottomed boat trip for a charming perspective of the natural surroundings and hotel itself. Spend the rest of your morning over a light lunch while reading and sunbathing in a comfortable lounger around the sapphire swimming pool or at the beautiful swimming beach.

A soothing massage in Le Cardinal’s second-floor treatment room is a necessary indulgence and guests are also able to make use of the wellness centre and tennis court of sister hotel, the Casuarina Hotel & Spa. After freshening up in your suite, gather at the piano bar for live music – a customary pre-dinner treat which sets the tone for a grand evening of culinary delight. Your dinner of three delectable courses is enjoyed in the beautifully furnished dining room where the food is matched only by impeccable service and an impressive wine list. Before retiring to bed, step out onto your private terrace overlooking the ocean. An inky blackness coats the rolling water below and the salt-air overwhelms the senses, readying you for sleep.
