One&Only Le Saint Géran
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.
Acclaimed internationally as a rejuvenating destination spa, the resort received the 2005 Best Overseas Hotel Spa award from the readers of Conde Nast Traveller (UK). With its sublime pampering and holistic approach of its Givenchy Spa and state-of-the-art fitness facilities, guests are enveloped in programmes of renewal that both energise and calm.
Sports & Activities:
A morning scuba dive? Putting with the golf pro on the Gary Player designed golf course, or honing skills at the Peter Burwash International Tennis Club? From aerobics and yoga to beach volleyball and water-skiing, Le Saint Géran offers a wide array of activities. Enthusiastic and highly trained staff attend to the specific interests of each guest. And children are cared for in the enriching and engaging KidsOnly club.
Every day, the Sports Team organises and co-ordinates a host of team-sport matches including volleyball, mini-football, bocciball, badminton, tennis, croquet, table tennis and beach soccer. Cross-island bicycle rides and horse riding offer enriching personal exploration of the pure beauty discovered on Mauritius.
The calm waters of the cove are ideal for kayaks, pedal boats, banana-boat and tube rides, as well as complimentary water-skiing; whereas the coral-sea lagoon on the ocean side is better suited for snorkelling, windsurfing, Hobiecats, monohull Lasers, and small-game fishing.
The island of Mauritius is divided into six regions with an abundance of micro-climates and different vegetations, with an ever-changing sea of cobalt blue discovered region to region. One&Only Le Saint Géran has several suggested day trips for guests to consider, all designed for individual exploration of the island’s extreme natural beauty.
