The Palm Hotel and Spa is arguably the most exclusive property on Reunion island. Located in the unspoilt southern region, beside the beautiful Grand Anse beach, it is a short drive from Saint-Pierre and the Pierrefonds airport. And it is also within easy reach of the natural craters, lava flows and the active volcano of Piton de la Fornaise. It is a quite exceptional hotel which opened its doors at the start of 2007, setting new standards in Reunion. The Akea Spa & Beauty center is recognised as one of the best on the island with a Hammam and range of massage treatments. There are two sparkling swimming pools (one heated), with customary deckchairs tailormade for whiling the days away.
Accommodation consists of 6 Villas made up of 8 rooms, 14 Junior Suites and 3 splendid Lodges. All the rooms are airconditioned and ridiculously luxurious with bathroom and separate toilet, satellite television, electronic safe and hairdryer. Most of the rooms have a view of the azure Indian Ocean and their own private patio. There are two restaurants which dish up classic and contemporary cuisine combining local and international flavours. Internet access is included and there are games from billiards, table tennis, golf and volleyball to an array of water sports.
The Palm Hotel and Spa is the ideal base for forays into the rugged south of Reunion. Facing out onto a breathtaking coral beach at Grande Anse, there are multiple water and land activities, or you can simply bask in the sun beside one of two infinity pools. The hotel is just an hour from Piton de la Fornaise, the island's famous active volcano, ringed by the three massive craters of Cilaos, Salazie and Mafate. There are rivers of lava in the vicinity and the hotel itself is surrounded by a pristine nature reserve. And it could not be better positioned either, just 8 minutes from Saint-Pierre and 20 minutes from the Pierrefonds airport in the south of Reunion!
