this hotel is nestled in well kept grounds a couple hundred metres from the beach. There is a wide variety of plants and trees that surround these wooden cabins that gives the feeling of really being out in the wild. Although there were not all of the creature comforts one would expect from the usual hotel experience, this wasn't your usual hotel experience at all. Don't get me wrong, with hot water, refridgeration and electricity, I didn't miss my computer or air conditioning at all. The nights were cool and to sit out on the porch under the sky in the calm of night with the sound of the sea in the distance made it one of the most romantic things I've ever experienced.
There were tours at night to the Grand Riviere beach to watch the endangered leatherback turtles come to nest. During the day, there are places close by that offer kayaking up into the Grand Riviere (river) itself, this was something I really wanted to try but time didnt permit.The restaurant food was really good, the breakfast menu offered sufficient variety from your typical continental breakfast to a few local delicacies served with homemade bread and hot cocoa tea (amazing).
i do hope to return there soon.
thank you Acajou... and Thank you Sasha<3
