Grand Bay 100% Mauritians


After four months of closure due to renovation, the Veranda Grand Baie Hotel and Spa, 3 star +, reopened on October 1. Follow the guide ...
There are those places that it's hard to leave or forget. This is the hotel's Veranda Grand Baie. If located almost in the heart of the tourist village, once the threshold, we find ourselves in a world that is both elegant, intimate and peaceful.
A guest's arrival, while a ritual is established. He is greeted with the sound of maravanne. The male staff is taking off his breath away sapo lapay and tone. Ravenale the roof, through the wooden shutters and furniture reminiscent of wicker, all designed to highlight the authenticity of the Creole style, signature by the hotel.
The white, combined with green, is found here and there bright colors tables Vaco Baissac or textile delicately decorated with floral motifs.
"The hotel was opened in 1982 and since then we continue to develop the art of living in Mauritius," said Clifford Pierre-Louis, Manager of Hotel Veranda Grand Baie. Creole in the garden, we take a step back in time. In the shade of the veranda or royal palms, lemonade house how old is served to customers.
In the lounge area, a variety of cocktails with suggestive names, including Bel Bato, Chombo Li La, In Balaba, is proposed. The bar Ti Lambic, in addition to local and international drinks, offers a tasting of no less than one hundred rums. These jealously guarded recipes, come out of rum with orange, apple, banana, cinnamon but pepper!
The hotel has two restaurants. The main restaurant, Mon Plaisir, whose name recalls the story of Mauritius, has a capacity of 140 seats. Breakfast is served buffet style and dinner table d'hote or buffet. The Belle Vue restaurant, overlooking the bay of the tourist village, is a reference to the Mauritian cuisine. On the menu, octopus curry papaya rougaille sausage accompanied vindaye black lentils or fish, all to taste the feet in the sand. It is also in the sand that you will lie on the deck surrounding the two pools. On the deck (platform) overlooking the beach, small but intimate, you give yourself up to the contemplation of the bay.
Lined with royal palms, walkways leading to the 94 guestrooms are named after the most loyal guests.
The rooms, standard and comfortable in Creole architecture, were built in a contemporary manner and feature, among other things, a flat screen TV - with no fewer than 19 channels - along with a security system high tech.
The little ones are not forgotten. The children's corner, Timomo, and offers a variety of activities throughout the day. The biggest, who care about their health, then find themselves in the well equipped gym or on the tennis court. Why not take a ride to the spa?
The Seven Colours Wellness Spa offers a private entrance. Various treatments and massages are offered to both hotel guests and individuals.
Cosmetics brand Seven Colours, with natural ingredients, offer benefits to all their customers. Consultations on the charkas (energy centers) are also available. "Discounts are offered to customers in Mauritius," said Kirsty Tse, manager of the spa.
We can not say if the "raki" attached to the arms of customers leaving or is it courtesy of its staff makes this hotel an endearing, but they long remembered.
