Le Prince Maurice represents a new generation of
5-star luxury hotels. The concept moves away from over-decorated palaces towards a fresher and more relaxing plan of harmony
with nature, integrity of design, and simplicity of décor. The Aman Resorts chain in Asia, created this spirit now reflected in this, the newest of
Mauritius' superior resort hotels.
The Mauritian Hotel Industry is grateful to PRINCE MAURICE who created the
spice route, thus giving great impetus to the trade of "divine essences". It is after his name that our island was named Mauritius, which became the most
favourite port of call of the Dutch, and which later on became the distribution centre of Asian spices, thanks to Pierre POIVRE. The allure of
the Indian Ocean islands has grown far beyond the quest for spices, leading to a demand for more knowledge of this exotic region.
In November 1998 Mauritius has revived it`s tradition by inaugurating
MAURICE, flagship of the island's five-star luxury hotel industry and the true symbol
of a new generation of hotels. Located on a unique and exceptional site,
PRINCE MAURICE is a five star luxury hotel, overlooking a peaceful lagoon and the coral barrier reef. This site is indeed the true jewel of a natural
Elegant and natural building materials such as marble, wood and stone as
well as an architecture allowing nature,water, space and light to create an atmosphere of comfort. This concept truly comes from Asian culture in its
art of living embellished with the Mauritian's smile
The service also depicts a new generation of luxury hotels.
Elegant and unrestrained, the service at LE PRINCE MAURICE
reflects the tranquillity looked for a discerning clientèle.
The setup of the hotel, only 88 suites
in all includes 60 hectares and 4 beaches,
provides for an unparalleled standard of
service and care, uniquely personal, never
familiar. The hotel is spread out along a
sheltered coral sand beach and private
lagoon. The suites are in two categories
Senior and Junior. They are scattered
along the pristine beach, in landscaped
gardens, on waterways, and even
suspended on site over the lagoon.
The Senior Suites are detached villas,
each with a conventional interior bathroom as well as a stylish exterior
walled bathing area, a waterfall shower cascading into a jacuzzi bath,
surrounded by pebble gardens and flowers.
Each Senior Suite has a large terrace and a private swimming pool.
Three of them are built on stilts,
overlooking the calm lagoon.
The entrance to the Hotel features a
towering port-cochere, leading to the
central lobby over bridges spanning
palm-studded water displays.
A pool stretches towards the lagoon,
the waters seeming to blend one with
the other. The Hotel has no reception
area, or cashier's desk - guests are just
that, and formalities are minimal and
Signature shops and a tranquil library
lead to an elegant lounge bar.This, in turn, leads to the restaurant, which
is in three sections; each suspended over the pool, facing the lagoon. A
unique floating restaurant provides serene views of the lagoon and the
mountains against the setting sun, as guests enjoy freshly-prepared seafoods
If all of this becomes too much,
the select fitness centre provides
secluded massage areas, an outdoor atrium pool and beauty therapy, all
in an atmosphere of privacy and
luxury. Le Prince Maurice offers discerning travellers refreshment
and refinement in the midst of a
healthy and relaxing environment
on one of the most beautiful islands
