La Pirogue, Mauritius
La Pirogue Hotel, Mauritius
Located on the west coast of Mauritius, running along one of the island's finest beaches, La Pirogue is set in the midst of a vast, luxuriant tropical garden. Close to Flic-en-Flac, the architecture has been inspired by the sea and a fishing village atmosphere, from the fishing boat, from which the hotel takes its name, to the main building inspired by white sails floating in the wind and to the chalets built in local style with volcanic rock and decked with wood and thatch.
Renowned for its relaxed atmosphere, world cuisine, and sports and activities galore, this is where couples and families experience the best of famed Mauritian hospitality.
55km from the Airport
