The One & Only Saint Geran palace hotel on the eastern coast of the island of Mauritius, opens onto the Poste de Flacq lagoon. This luxury hotel with a lovely old fashioned charm offers its guests the unique experience of an intimate retreat on the shores of the Indian Ocean. Elegant and perfumed, the hotel’s 168 powder pink suites cast a romantic veil over this confidential address. From the furnishings of the suites to the food proposed, love is truly in the air. Under the vigilant direction of chefs Alain Ducasse, Vinet Bhatia and Maxime Louvera, the hotel’s three restaurants serve a highly gastronomic cuisine. French dishes range from the most sophisticated to the simplest depending on the demands of the clients. The high quality of service throughout the thirty years of its existence has made the One & Only Saint Geran a veritable Mauritius institution.

Poste de Flacq

Still preserved from the negative aspects of mass tourism, the east coast of the island of Mauritius possesses vast stretches of beach from the village of Trou d’Eau Douce to the Poste de Falcq. Although the hotel industry continues to invest in beachfront property, tourism has remained less active here and more oriented towards luxury tourism than in the Grand Baie region located further north. In these areas, it’s hard to find anything inexpensive in the way of hotels. The primarily private beaches offer guests tranquility in the shade of the filao trees and the sound of a light breeze rustling through the leaves.

On weekends, the Belle-Mare beach is a favorite spot for Mauritian families who come there to picnic, facing the water of the lagoon. Considered to be one of the island’s most beautiful beaches, the Belle-Mare domain ends at the Poste de Flacq, a village in the form of a luxurious enclave occupied by some of the Mauritius’ leading hotels. Tropical gardens, golf courses created by some of the greatest names in the sport, gastronomic restaurants on private islands and a vast number of available activities make the Poste de Flacq an ideal vacation destination for luxury and comfort.

Paul and Virginie’s hotel

This palace hotel elevated to the rank of an institution, is located on the coast where the shipwreck of the Saint Géran, after which the hotel is named, took the life of Virginie before the eyes of her helpless love, Paul in the famous 18th century novel, “Paul and Virginie”. The hotel’s name, One & Only Le Saint Géran, is a tribute to undying, timeless love. Everything here speaks of love: the gentle aromas that perfume the suites that look out onto the lagoon, light pink wood décor, the presence of a private butler, and the idyllic surroundings of kilometers of beach and lush vegetation. The spirit of author Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre is present everywhere, even on the walls of the restaurant appropriately called, Paul and Virginie.

Guests have been receiving an incomparable quality of service and the best in gastronomic cuisine for thirty years. There are three restaurants, three Chefs and three of the greatest names in cuisine: Alain Ducasse, Vinet Bhatia and Maxime Louvera. Guests have a choice of contemporary Indian cuisine, sophisticated French gastronomy or very simple dishes. “We bend over backwards for our guests. All they have to do is ask”, explains Maxime Loubera. “It doesn’t matter if it’s eggs mimosa or a simple potato salad.” It comes as no surprise that the hotel has been attracting celebrities and public figures for a long time.

Since September 2011, Mauritius has its own PGA (Professional Golfers Association), whose inauguration was celebrated in high style at the One & Only Le Saint Géran hotel. (September 10th, 2011- Le Mauricien.com
