We celebrated my wife's 40th birthday at La Pirogue with our 2-year-old son. It was a truly incredible experience. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and you feel like you're in a pristine botanical garden surrounded by coconut trees. The water is perfect. The bungalows are something out of a tropical fairy tale. The staff are kind, proactive, attentive, and committed to ensuring a quality experience. The team at the Kids' Club - especially Artee, Sonia, and Jeannick - were wonderful and made our toddler feel right at home. La Pirogue has been operating much longer than most resorts in Mauritius and there's a reason for that: it's a well-honed institution to which people return year after year. We now hope to be part of that tradition. Read less

We stayed there during independence Day but was worried by the bad rainy weather prevailing on the island. The welcome by management was superb. Vanessa, Jerome and Ashok were all so genuine and welcoming. We met lobin also who were very sweet and helpful. In fact most of the staffs seems well trained and courteous and kind. We were guided by a club car to a free upgraded room overlooking the sea - which was very well appreciated and awesome. The room, thought slightly limited by its own infrastructure and hence was smaller than standard, was nevertheless very nice, colorful, lively, neat and very classy. The room was recently renovated last year and it turns out to be a success, with the furniture will conveying a feeling of being new.The room also has a bathtub and nice shower, giving a good premium feel. However the Miracast on TV was buggy and couldn't be played despite repeated attempts over our stay. We were invited to a decent management cocktail for independence Day celebration and Mahen the in house photographer captured and gave us a special photo for us to remember this special moment. "Thanks you" to him. Well appreciated The main dining restaurant was slightly crowded and we got a good seating place at the far back end. But service was very good nonetheless Breakfast in the morning was nice, with a wide variety of fruits and patisserie and food. The waffle was a delicacy as well. We also visited the music studio which was unique on the island with very interesting product/service to be enjoyed with the family in the future The second day dinner was Asian buffet. Everything was so tasty. The chef is very kind, offering so many variety of high quality succulent food. We tested the van del stel wine which was recommended with this buffet. The wine was refreshing and delicious. It lives up to its expectation and made us longing for more. The entertainment was also very nice and varied over two days. The room offering of fresh fruits and snacks were very nice and appreciated as well. We also witnessed a Netflix production crew trying to film apparently entitled "a mother's love". Was very nice to witness. The landscaping also were in general well kept, boosted up by the rain. The swimming pool was very refreshing and has a strange shape - it is wider and longer than at first sight, and surrounded by lots of trees The checkout experience was quick and seamless. Overall will recommend 100%. Read less
