LE SAINT GERAN, ONE&ONLY
One&Only Le Saint Géran nestles peacefully in its own private peninsula on the coast of Mauritius, fringed by over a mile of white sand beaches.
Mauritian influences reign supreme, with a special kind of hospitality that welcomes each guest and brings back generations of families year after year. The resort’s relaxed and discreet ambience is complemented by service provided attentively yet unobtrusively.
Under the calm sway of hundreds of coconut palms, 60 acres of immaculate gardens run down to the edge of the coral-sand beach, which seamlessly wraps the peninsula. The sheltered lagoon provides calm waters for an array of water sports accessible within steps and idyllic for adults and children alike.
Immortalised in Bernadin de Saint Pierre’s novel ‘Paul et Virginie’, the resort’s peninsula is near the site of Le Saint Géran shipwreck.

All 162 suites and one villa feature a private terrace or balcony facing the ocean or cove, as well as a door opening onto a tropical garden. Spacious bathrooms are beautifully appointed, with great cascading showers. All guests have personalized 24-hour butler service.

The jewel in One&Only Le Saint Géran's gastronomic crown is the 'haute-couture' gourmet restaurant Spoon des Îles, creation of world-renowned Michelin-Star chef Alain Ducasse. Spoon des Îles represents the first venture out of Paris of Monsieur Ducasse's Spoon Food & Wine restaurant and explores the world of food with a tempting array of multi-ethnic cuisines matched by the finest selected wines, chosen by Monsieur Ducasse's trusted sommelier, Gérard Margeon.
The newest dining venue, Rasoi by Vineet, features the award-winning contemporary Indian cuisine of Vineet Bhatia, whose Michelin-starred Chelsea restaurant was named "Indian Restaurant of the Year" just a year after it opened. The new tropical waterside restaurant enjoys a magnificent natural setting, with views of the green sugarcane-clad mountains and the private lagoon. Dining at Rasoi by Vineet is a multi-sensory experience, from the atmospheric tropical fans, bespoke chill-out music and live "floor show" of chefs in the kitchen, to the aromas of cooking from the wood-fired oven. The kitchen features Vineet's signature live acts, including a TAK-A-TAK grill, a form of traditional Indian Tepanyaki and an open Tandoor.
