Each has its own private furnished terrace.
Dining at La Pirogue has never been finer and guests enjoy access to a total of five restaurants and three bars, for a never-ending variety of tastes and treats. First stop for adults will likely be Cinq Mondes Spa, for a well-deserved relax, though with so many outdoor happenings, you will be spoiled for choice during your stay. These include activities for everyone in your party, including kids and teens, who will love the Sun Kids Club or Teens Club, depending on their age. Offsite excursions are aplenty, especially nearby Casela Nature Park, and world class golfing at Tamarina or Ile aux Cerfs. Music lovers will marvel at the state-of-the-art, professional Recording Studio, and there is a superior Wine Cellar for aficionados of Dionysius’ preferred sustenance, which may also be reserved for private parties.
With one of the longest and best beaches in the Indian Ocean, wide angle views that include picturesque Le Morne Mountain to the south, and a setting that is close to most centres of the island, La Pirogue provides the ideal starting point for holiday adventures in Mauritius.
