The hotel

Nestled in the heart of a coconut plantation bordering one of the island's finest beaches, La Pirogue is built in the style of a fisherman's village with each room housed in thatched cottages scattered throughout the beautiful spacious gardens. The hotel boasts a fantastic range of facilities for all the family, including a 1,000sq m infinity pool with a floating Jacuzzi, a spa, sumptuous dining options and a daily supervised kids' and teens' club. When evening hits, La Morne beach bar offers live entertainment or DJ's, and alongside the roaring bonfire, this makes for an excellent spot for a nightcap.

One of the best Hotels we ever had for recharging our batteries. Starting from just relaxing on the beach, snorkeling, diving, fishing, fitness, spa-treatment etc. Excellent breakfast and dining on top. And the best: Super friendly staff all over the place! Definetely a place to feel (almost) better than home!

If you stay longer the food in the restaurant could change more often. You also need to be aware that you need to do reservations (e.g. if you want to eat in partner hotel sugar beach) many days upfront, they are not very flexible. In total this is the most beautifull Hotel I have seen so far. Read less
