Go for a jog at sunrise on the deserted, rose-tinted beach... The beach and its magnificent sunset on the Indian Ocean is on offer to you for a romantic walk, a game of beach volleyball or a cocktail on the beach...

In a forest of filaos trees overlooking the beach, our natural gazebo made of palm tree leaves, has a large round table for you to take breakfast. You will feast on seasonal fruits, fresh fruit juice and pastries, facing the ocean, to the sound of turtle doves, black birds, wood pigeons and other bird fowl's song.

This is the creole name given to the terraces built at the end of gardens, overlooking the road, making it possible to see passers-by and keep an eye on them. Our large terrace under the filaos trees, with a view of the Indian Ocean, offers comfortable areas to laze in the shade, or to take an evening cocktail while admiring the sunset.

Formerly our children's tree huts, we have developed this area to offer you a breathtaking view of the lagoon. The front part overlooks the beach and the back part overlooks the garden and swimming-pool. A terrace for everyone's needs : The former part is the preferred viewpoint to admire the sunset while sipping a rhum arrangeé or a Dodo beer in comfortable armchairs. The hammock or bench space welcomes you in the afternoon for a nap in the trees, rocked to sleep by the sound of the wind in the filaos trees. Our professional massage therapist will also offer you a massage in this enchanting place surrounded by the energy of the trees. After dinner, you can prolong your evening under soft-lighting. And in the evening, on reservation, we will transform the space into an ephemeral bedroom where you may spend the night under the stars, protected by a mosquito net.

Made out of natural stones the colours of the lagoon, the swimming pool offers you a refreshing break surrounded by the different species of palm trees of Reunion Island. Its deck made from exotic wood is furnished with loungers and parasols for lazing and relaxing, and small lounges are there for an aperitif on the edge of the pool. The pool is only open to guests.

1000m2 in surface area, the garden is entirely covered with trees, flowers and grass. We have kept the fifty year-old trees planted by our ancestor and have complemented the garden with fruit trees typical to the island.
