Shaded by coconut palms, right on the water's edge and away from the hustle and bustle of Grand Baie town, 20° Sud offers the discreet yet friendly service of a small, proprietor-run guest house, that many of the larger resort hotels in Mauritius do not. 20° Sud has the stylish charm and elegance of an old colonial home, right down to the individually decorated bedrooms. Each is unique, with a light and airy ambiance created with white, cream, wood, and shuttered doors.

Although situated out of town in a quieter residential area, bustling Grand Baie with its markets, Mauritian culture and restaurants is just a short hop away on the free daily boat transfer across the bay. Alternatively, take an excursion to one of the small tropical islands visible from 20° Sud, to picnic and snorkel your day away. Of course you could always stay put and enjoy swimming in the clear pool or off the little beach. Try windsurfing, sailing or kite surfing in the bay, relax with a book or board game on a sun lounger or indulge in one of the body treatments at the hotel spa.

The hotel restaurant serves all-day English or Continental breakfasts, free afternoon teas, and dinners created by the local 20° Sud chef using the finest local ingredients.

It is also possible to dine aboard the oldest motorboat in Mauritius that has been restored by the owners of 20° Sud. Every evening she departs for her trip around the bay, with a maximum of 8 guests for a very private dining experience.

For a truly different experience, sail away to Flat Island where 20° Sud have created a tiny, personalized restaurant in an old ruin on this otherwise deserted island.

Traveller Reviews

  • This stunning Boutique Hotel was a true gem for me as it had so much history to the decor, personal touch from the owners collectables and a luxury barefoot beach/colonial feel which is perfect for couples and especially Honeymooners. I truly loved the intimacy of the Boutique Hotel and the private beach where you can relax in a hammock or one of the beach beds. They offer a complimentary boat shuttle service which runs daily and escorts you to the other side of the bay where you can enjoy shopping at the local markets. Two highlights for me was they own the oldest motor boat in Mauritius and offer dinning on board which includes all drinks and a three course Seafood meal at an additional cost but highly recommended for a cosy and romantic evening under the stars on a vintage boat. The other highlight was a day trip to the Governor's House which 20 Degrees Sud created an extraordinary site on the island of Ile Plate. The Governors House is a 19th century ruin where there is an exclusive restuarant, accommodation and private beach and guests are escorted from 20 Degrees Sud via a Catamaran. This is also highly recommended and can be booked out for groups or couples privately.
