La Pirogue: trop­i­cal charm

Avion Luxury International Airport Magazine - - HOTELS -

Mau­ri­tius, the mag­i­cal is­land where white beaches, crys­tal-clear sea and un­spoiled na­ture blend with a joy­ful and friendly mul­ti­eth­nic cul­ture, is home to a very spe­cial ho­tel: La Pirogue. The prop­erty, which is char­ac­terised by bun­ga­lows with roofs made of straw and vol­canic rock, takes its name from a lo­cal fish­ing ves­sel called a “Pirogue”. This charm­ing and trop­i­cally-styled ho­tel, lo­cated on Mau­ri­tius’ western coast, is char­ac­ter­ized by a splen­did pool fac­ing the Ocean, the com­fort of each room and an in­no­va­tive kitchen. La Pirogue ben­e­fits from one of Mau­ri­tius’ most beau­ti­ful views: to­wards the south, a stun­ning beach that ex­tends to­wards the rocky penin­sula of Le Morne by the bril­liant blue sea, and in­land, a promon­tory along­side the Black River Gorge. One of the most prom­i­nent at­trac­tions, in ad­di­tion to the un­spoiled beach, is the 35 acres of gar­den which com­bines pris­tine English-style gar­dens, with plan­ta­tions of palm trees and lush veg­e­ta­tion. A har­mo­nious com­bi­na­tion of pri­vate zones and com­mu­nal ar­eas ded­i­cated to en­ter­tain­ment sur­round the heart of the re­sort: a 1000 square me­tre pool with is­lands, the Paul & Vir­ginie restau­rant and a beach bar. There are 246 Stan­dard and Su­pe­rior cot­tages and 2 Royal Suites, in which the Bri­tish and Dutch royal fam­i­lies, var­i­ous heads of state and mem­bers of the Mau­ri­tian govern­ment have lodged. There are two stan­dard rooms in each bun­ga­low: open and spa­cious, they fea­ture large win­dows and pri­vate pa­tio. The ma­jor­ity of the Su­pe­rior rooms oc­cupy an en­tire cot­tage and have spa­cious bath­rooms (with a bath and a shower) and a large

pri­vate gar­den. The Royal Suites, named Flam­boy­ant and Bougainvil­lea and lo­cated in a tran­quil area of the gar­dens for in­creased pri­vacy, fea­ture a spa­cious sit­ting room and din­ing room, two gar­dens, dou­ble rooms and very large bath­rooms (in­clud­ing one for guests). La Pirogue of­fers the best in world din­ing with an em­pha­sis on flavour, aes­thet­ics and va­ri­ety, both in the Thatches, the main restau­rant, and the Paul & Vir­ginie, but also by the pool and on the beach. The Aura Spa is the ul­ti­mate ex­pres­sion of well­ness. The Aura ex­pe­ri­ence trans­mits a sense of per­sonal well­be­ing, com­fort, care and sat­is­fac­tion for its guests. The word “Aura” is as­so­ci­ated with con­cepts of am­bi­ence, at­mos­phere, mys­tery, life and emo­tions; each of th­ese con­cepts are a part of Spa's phi­los­o­phy, where each in­di­vid­ual is guided through a jour­ney of ab­so­lute well­be­ing. The Spa is equipped with rooms for in­di­vid­ual or cou­ples’ treat­ments, as well as an area ded­i­cated en­tirely to Shi­atsu treat­ments. And to fin­ish, the amaz­ing Ham­mam treat­ments, which in­clude an un­usual black soap mas­sage. Here, the only obli­ga­tion is to do ex­actly what you want to do, how and when you want... La Pirogue is an ideal des­ti­na­tion for a va­ca­tion with a loved one, with the fam­ily, or with friends; an ex­pe­ri­ence which will cer­tainly be re­mem­bered as a won­der­ful trop­i­cal hol­i­day. La Pirogue, an ex­pe­ri­ence par ex­cel­lence.
