SALT of Palmar

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

A unique and new concept to Mauritius, SALT of Palmar is an eco-conscious, one-of-a-kind property that immerses you into the beauty of the island. As soon as you arrive, you'll feel at home, with the added bonus of sea breeze in your hair and sand between your toes. Experience island-life with the skill swap programme, enjoy some water sports, or simply choose to relax poolside or beachside. You'll be sure to find zero single-use plastics as well as zero food waste, and there's even SALT's own farm to supply the restaurant. What's not to love?

We were there for an anniversary. And everything was perfect from check in to check out. The idea of rooms without TV has been well thought of. Staffs are courteous and eager to help. Overall it was a satisfying and pleasing experience.
