ONE & ONLY LE SAINT GÉRAN

BACK TO PACKAGE
  • HOTEL OVERVIEW

    Incomparable and distinguished, One & Only Le Saint Géran nestles peacefully in the silver white sands of its own private peninsula. Here, under the gentle sway of thousands of coconut palms towering over immaculate gardens, Mauritian influences reign supreme. Extensively remodelled in 1999, the resort’s friendly calm and easy luxury is complemented by service that is attentive, yet unobtrusive. Spacious suites with terrace or balcony face out privately to the Indian Ocean.

    A sheltered lagoon provides calm waters for an array of complimentary water sports ideal for adults and children alike, while the One&Only Spa offers a privileged sanctuary of quiet pampering with its own private lap pool. The lush Gary Player 9-hole golf course, located within the resort’s manicured grounds, has its own clubhouse and the One&Only Golf Academy. Immortalised in Bernardin de Saint Pierre’s novel ‘Paul et Virginie,’ the resort’s peninsula is near the site of Le Saint Géran shipwreck.

    On the east coast of Mauritius, One&Only Le Saint Géran graces 60 acres on the beautiful Belle Mare peninsula. The resort is fringed by over a mile of white sand beach, bound by a sheltered cove on one side and by an inviting, eternally beautiful bay on the other. Ringed by a protective hemline of coral reef from the deep Indian Ocean, the peninsula on which One&Only Le Saint Géran sits is very close to the actual site of the wreck of the Le Saint Géran ship in 1744.

    The resort is 1 hour from the airport and 40 minutes from the capital of Port Louis. The island of Mauritius is about 1,800km (1,118 miles) from the east coast of Africa.
