A popular family resort in Grand Baie, Mauritius, Le Canonnier caters to the holidaymaker's every need. Set in several acres of lush garden, around which you may find the remnants of an old fort, Le Canonnier was redesigned in 2005 and now is surely one of the most unique and stylish hotels in the area.
The extensive gardens are dotted with pools and ponds and stretch out onto the peninsula. The rooms unfold in two wings in a stylish and trendy design. The furniture is simple, with a minimalism that shows in a tasteful combination of colours, material and texture: contrasts of red and beige, wooden frames, and fine wooden blinds.
Stay in the standard category overlooking the tropical gardens and swimming pool, or ocean; or stay in a superior room or family duplex, also with pool and garden or sea views. All rooms have air conditioning, electronic safes, telephone, television, mini bar and hairdryers. Le Canonnier also has its own beauty and wellness centre with its own bicentennial banyan tree and massage rooms.
The prevailing winds being offshore on the North Coast means sea conditions are perfect for water sports. Spending your days out on the water is the thing to do in the North. Whether you choose to take a catamaran trip out to one of the outlying islets for a beach barbecue or stay closer inshore and enjoy watersking, parasailing, windsurfing and a whole host of other activities. With clear waters, conditions are perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving and further out to sea you can land a monster fish on a deep sea fishing expedition. The North also has at least two inland places of interest, which are "La Nicoliere" drive and the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden, where you can see the famous waterlily pond. Grand Baie is well known for its selection of bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
