A blissful tropical climate softened by Atlantic trade winds, pinkish-white, sugar-soft beaches, fabulous scuba diving, and laid-back catamaran cruises… These are just some of the fabulous experiences to be savoured in one of the Caribbean’s most popular and welcoming destinations - Barbados.
Make One&Only Le Saint Géran your next winter sun stay
Mauritius is the ideal destination for a winter sun holiday, but it’s important to reserve well ahead, as the best places to stay on this delightful island book up well in advance. These include the cocooning One&Only Le Saint Géran – which is not only one of our own personal favourites and recommendations to our customers, but also the only Indian Ocean resort to be awarded the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide 5 Star Award for the fourth consecutive year.
We’ve shared some of our favourite things about this truly outstanding, ultra-luxury resort.
This longstanding resort has been welcoming guests for more than 48 years – in fact, it’s the grande dame of Mauritius hotels, having opened as the island’s first very luxury offering in 1975. Many guests are families who return year after year as new generations appear – and indeed, with its room options with up to three bedrooms, it’s one that’s perfect for family escapes and multigenerational getaways that so many of our clients seek these days. The hotel also underwent a complete refurbishment in 2018, ensuring it remains one of the most beautiful and modern resorts in the region.
Rooms, suites and the secluded two-bedroom villa have been cleverly designed to bring nature inside through disappearing patio doors, seamless indoor–outdoor flooring and island-inspired colour palettes. All come with balcony or terrace with ocean, beach or lagoon views, and suites enjoy personalised 24-hour butler service. The villa even has dedicated private chef service, along with its own pool and direct access to the beach.
Location and Activities
Nestled in the soft sands of a private peninsula, the hotel sits between a gorgeous, sheltered lagoon and the blissfully warm Indian Ocean, surrounded by fabulous coral reefs and clear waters. But it’s not all about peace and calm here: thrilling bespoke adventures on offer nearby include jumping out of an aeroplane, scaling a mountain, quad-biking through sugarcane fields and trekking in the wild at Ile aux Aigrettes.
Things to do
Back on-site, The Boathouse is the place to head to for water-sports fun on the lagoon, including kayaking, SUP paddle-boarding, fly-fishing, windsurfing, laser sailing, waterskiing and wakeboarding. The resort also has no fewer than three gorgeous infinity pools (one family, one adult-only and one in the spa).
There are also the KidsOnly and Tweens Only clubs and teens’ One Tribe, where younger guests can make new friends while joining in with the likes of treasure hunts, table tennis tournaments, five-a-side football, snorkelling, barbecues, bonfires and karaoke.
We’ve long loved One&Only Le Saint Géran for its famously warm staff – a huge factor in the atmosphere of utter relaxation that reigns here. Don’t miss the opportunity to escape from the world in the holistic spa with its private gardens with outdoor showers and treatments inspired by indigenous techniques. There’s also a pavilion with bliss-inducing alfresco yoga and mindfulness sessions.
Food and drink
This service extends, of course, to One&Only restaurants, which include PRIME steakhouse, serving Australian Angus Wagyu beef, fresh seafood and local produce, Tapasake, a lagoon venue with overwater seating, fusing Spanish tapas with Pan-Asian flavours, and La Pointe, a toes-in-the-sand venue where you can feast on the daily catch grilled over firewood.
