Les Lataniers Bleus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 January 2010

My first trip to Mauritius was truly made special by Les Lataniers Bleus.
The beautiful beach and warm sea, excelent food and outstanding service made my stay, the time of my life.

Les Lataniers Bleus has a real sence of Mauritian tradition.
From the quiet gardens to the enjoyment of meeting other guests at dinner, sharing stories of the days adventure and eating fine food it truly is a great place to stay.
I met many wonderful people of different nationalities and learnt alot about the Mauritian culture.

The staff were very welcoming and helpful.

I hope to return again.

Stay at Les Lataniers Bleus if you are really interested in Mauritius -- if you want to spend a long dinner hour discussing the activities of the day over a family-style meal with your hosts and fellow guests. The dinners are really the heart of the experience here. If they sound fun to you, well, they are. The property is beautiful and authentic, with lovely gardens all the way from the road down to the beach. At the same time, it has all modern amenities such as free wifi and very effective air conditioning. Truly memorable. One of the three or four best places I have ever stayed.

P.S. Pick a place that's right for you. If you want to be left alone, and don't want to interact with anyone who is not in your own traveling party, you should probably stay somewhere else.

Stayed for 9 nights at Les Lataniers Bleus in a mixed group of children and adults-9 of us in all.The setting was perfect-in pretty gardens right on the beach. Very quiet with minimal traffic noise-just birdsong and the waves on the beach. We stayed in the 2 smaller villas - both spacious and well equipped.We especially liked the smaller 2 bedroom villa which was directly on the beach with a large terrace. Josette, the proprietor did all she could to make our stay enjoyable. We had 2 evening meals and Josette was very happy to provide options for vegetarians. In our travels around the island saw numerous large luxurious hotels and rather soulless blocks of self catering apartments but I always felt very happy to be returning to the peace,quiet and intimacy of Les Lataniers Bleus.

It is rare these days that a holiday stay delivers everything that it promises
Josette and team at Les Lataniers Bleus make sure that everything is spot on from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure.
Set in beautiful private grounds, the accomodation retains seaside style and captures all the things that one needs to make the stay comfortable and easy.
Evenings on the terrace for dinner with other guests is one of the highs of staying at Les Lataniers Bleus. If you want to know what good creole cooking is, then stay in to dinner some of the nights, you wont be disappointed.
Those small personal touches from all the staff added so much to the holiday experience to make it great.
Even if you come here with no ideas what you want to do, Josette is an enabler, and you will be soon doing what you didnt perhaps expect, be it walking with lions (no, none in the gardens) or swimming with dolphins.
And, all the guests were great as well...how do you do THAT Josette?

We stayed at this wonderful place for 14 days & had a hard time leaving, since we enjoyed every minute we were there. It was very special & absolutly wonderful to be a guest at this layed-back "garden eden".
It´s a great colourful, very well looked after garden paradies smak bang on the beach.
It´s calm.
It´s peaceful.
It´s full of nature.
It´s as relaxed as you want it, once you started your annual holiday with a max. of 14 days.
The rooms are being looked after & cleaned every day ... the ladies are lovely, helpful & always open for a little chat.
Esp. Josette - she´s the heart of this place & of course - the owner.
She´s around when you need her or if you are planning an excursion on the island.
She has handy tipps, where to go, whom to call (she usually does that for you:-)), how & where to save money etc... Plus she´s a very special & pleasant host at any time.
The premises are on the south-western side of Mauritius - for us probalbly the nicest part of the island, because of the fact - that´s where you find most of the nature.
That´s how Mauritius used to be before the tourism started to boom, we were tolded by our diveguide.
We have to say that the beach right from the "Les Lataniers Bleus" garden belongs to the most private & nicest ones we have visted and seen during our stay.
The ladies offer you lunch & dinner, that you can be part of as long you like to, since it´s not a must.
You decide every morning yourself.
It´s always a perfectly cooked, nicely arranged & tasteful meal made by a local that knows the "mauritian creole cuisine" from her own home.
Anyways, much better than any other restaurant we´ve been to - esp. price in comparison to what you get.
If 20h00-21h00 is not to late for your dinnertime, than you shouldn´t miss it !
After long days out, scuba diving, hiking, sightseeing etc. starting at 06h00-07h00 in the morning we missed it many times, since we were already sleeping & too knackered :-)

We both would give it 10 out of 10 possible stars ! *****
Go and find out yourself !

If you want to experience Mauritius without retired golfers and honeymoon couples, this is the place. Les Lataniers Bleus is a quiet gem by the sea with a fantastic view and a natural atmosphere, all being orchestrated by Josette. The dinner here is a social event where you explore both Mauritian life and small or larger problems of the world. I will miss the warmth of Josette and the magical African sunset.
