Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury, Grand Baie, Mauritius

Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury

The Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury is arguably among the finest hotels in Mauritius. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to sun-lounging. We spent much of our time on the pure-white, sun-drenched sandy beach, which made for ideal basking as it’s protected by trade winds. Other guests stopped just shy of it and enjoyed the palm-lined pool deck. 

We found our stay at The Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury the perfect opportunity to unwind. Admittedly, there’s not much else to do apart from sunbathing and swimming in the clear, turquoise water, but don’t mistake this for a complaint – far from it. That’s what we came to Mauritius to do, so we were going to make the most of it!

The property’s discreet suites are gorgeous, combining delicate and bold hues, fine fabrics, finishes in wood and marble and furniture crafted by local artisans. Each has a sea-facing balcony or terrace screened by palms and looking out towards Grand Baie, or ‘bay without end’, as the Dutch called it. The overall design preserves the hotel’s unique atmosphere, charm and elegance. Add to this the warm attention from the staff, who outnumber guests by three to one. 

The location of The Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury is incredible – picked for its beauty by Beachcomber Hotels back in 1952 when the company opened the first of its eight hotels here. This is clearly its flagship, but despite its age, remains the gorgeous grande dame of this island nation.

While you’re Out There
Just a stone’s throw from the resort, the fishing ‘village’ is a hub for visitors, with restaurants, shops and nightlife. There’s also a great choice of sea adventures departing from the bay. You could take a ride on a submarine, try deep-sea fishing or go on a tour of the pretty islands of Gabriel, Serpent or Gunners’ Quoin.
