« A charming landmark in which you could spend a lifetime in comfort and serenity. Discretely located on the North-East coast, this hotel holds all the assets to please you. »,
Patrice, Islandian Expert
Only in your dreams would you have imagined a place such as La Maison d’Été, where the turquoise-hues of the sea kiss the unspoilt coastline of an island in the sun. Set upon a rocky promontory overlooking the ocean, and surrounded by the sandy beaches of Poste Lafayette, this charming seaside guest house makes your dream come true. Designed as a tribute to island living, the east coast boutique hotel – with its thatched roofs, whitewash walls, rattan furnishings – evokes a traditional Mauritian campement by the sea. Splashes of red – reminiscent of stunning flamboyant trees – accentuate the clean modern façades and interiors, evoking a tropical vibe unlike any other. Tastefully decorated by the attentive owner, each of the 16 bright and airy guest rooms has its own private wooden deck or a balcony, from which you may soak up the sun while taking in the endless ocean views.
The hotel is known for its cuisine, which is a home-made blend of simple, yet exquisitely prepared meals, influenced by European, Creole, Chinese and Indian gastronomy. Meals are taken in the Garden Restaurant, and when the sun is out or on clear evenings, you will want to dine barefoot in the sand by the beach. The freshest seafood and produce make up the ingredients – allowing you to indulge in fish tartare spiced with vanilla and pink peppercorns, or octopus carpaccio with passion fruit and candied ginger. On Sundays, a traditional Mauritian buffet lunch is faithfully served.
Adventurous travellers will love the numerous water activities and excursions organised by La Maison d’Été, to the islands dotting the north-eastern coast; or inland for a day trip to the capital, Port Louis, to explore its bustling central market, the Chinatown quarter, and to savour sizzling hot street food. Other points of interest, like Pamplemousses Gardens, Ganga Talao – site of the annual Maha Shivratree pilgrimage, the Sugar Museum, and colonial-era Château de Labourdonnais, provide unique Mauritian experiences for holiday-makers. At the end of your day, there is nothing better than succumbing to a tranquil spa-style treatment, back at the hotel.
There is no doubt, La Maison d’Été is your haven for peaceful contemplation, where the ocean’s waves unfurl in a lulling sheen, and a gentle salty breeze causes the canopy of palms to rustle above your head.
La Maison d’Été has two restaurants and two lounge bars on its premises that provide exquisite, yet simple, foods for your dining pleasure. Breakfast is included in the accommodation cost, while all other meals are available on supplement.
Children are more than welcome at La Maison d'Été. We accept children under 3 years of age free of charge. For older children, a cot or an additional bed will be installed in your room at a supplementary fee.
Our games room, with its billiards table, is the perfect place to retreat to after dinner to savour a fine-aged rum or Armagnac.
La Maison d’Été provides guests with a wellness and beauty zone, specially designed to bring equilibrium to your everyday outlook. Combined with nature’s essential elements – a light sea breeze, a soft lapping tide, the murmur of flora and fauna, the soothing warmth of the sun – let yourself be enticed by the centre’s soothing face, body, and massage treatments, its energetic yoga and stretching classes, and other specialised cures for the senses.
