Royal Palm Hotel, Mauritius
Beachcomber's flagship hotel, Royal Palm, is also Mauritius' finest. 69 lagoon-facing suites combine peerless luxury and intimacy, while stunning cuisine and world-class service create a welcome crafted to anticipate and satisfy your every wish.
When the Royal Palm Hotel became a member of the none-more-prestigious The Leading Hotels of the World Group, it was the first hotel on the Indian Ocean to do so. The groundbreaking standards of luxury which saw it become Mauritius' finest hotel continue to this day.
Each of the 69 intimate suites overlooks the lagoon – a private haven for relaxation, indulgence or water sports - yet all are just a short walk to lively Grand Baie. Laze on the pristine beach, swim in the hotel's 3 pools (including the 25m lap pool) or luxuriate in the sanctuary of the Clarins spa.
Hospitality reaches new heights at the Royal Palm. Staff outnumber guests 3-1. Stay here and you're assured of the very highest standards of attentiveness.
Visitors journey from across Mauritius to sample the cuisine. Its 3 restaurants enjoy an international reputation, carefully yet imaginatively overseen by Head Chef Michel De Matteis, winner of the title "Best Craftsman in France".
Every one of the Beachcomber Royal Palm's suites faces the calm, crystal waters of Grand Baie, yet the view is (almost) as impressive indoors. Spacious rooms blend relaxed luxury with exotic refinements. The delicate and bold combine in the fabrics and finishes, and the furniture is custom-crafted by local artisans.
All suites include:
- Individually controlled air-conditioning
- Bathroom with bathtub and shower
- Separate WC
- Walk-in wardrobe
- Television with satellite channels
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Minibar with complimentary soft drinks
