Hotel Info

Offering a welcome as warm as the sun, La Pirogue typifies the Mauritian experience: deeply enigmatic, exquisitely tranquil, delightfully friendly and filled with endless fun.

La Pirogue is true Mauritius: blues and greens and golds and pale shades of white, splashed with tropical colour. It is open skies and flowing water, tall swaying palms and silky sand.

La Pirogue is beautiful nights and elaborate culture. It is smiles and dancing and joy and music and pleasure and star-filled skies, garnished with attentiveness and generosity.

La Pirogue is a harmonious combination of sun-drenched loungers, poolside decks, open areas and intimate spots. It is everything a family could wish for; everything a couple could dream of.


La Pirogue is an ode to the island’s fishing culture, enhanced by the rustic charm of volcanic rock, warm wood, thatch, coral and vanilla. It is unique in its style, design and décor.

Opening onto an inviting palm grove of over 1 000 coconut trees and warmed by the breath of millions of white frangipani, La Pirogue’s range of ground-level standard rooms, superior rooms and royal suites are both spacious and deeply charming; both romantic and family-friendly.

With all of the authentic beauty of a genuine Mauritian pirogue; all of the luxury you’d expect; and all of the special touches you’d never anticipate, this is an exceptional resort.

All rooms have private bathrooms with showers, hairdryers, aircon, satellite TV, video players, direct-dial telephones, mini-bars, tea & coffee facilities, 24-hour in-room dining and electronic room safes.


At Thatches, the main restaurant, make your selection from an appetising breakfast or scrumptious lunch buffet, featuring English, Creole, Mauritian or Indian delicacies. And as the stars come out, look over the garden, the pool or one of several themed live cooking stations as you enjoy barbeque, salads, pasta, pizza, teppanyaki and dessert. Thatches seats 450 people.

Next to Thatches you’ll encounter The Blue Bar: a granite and electric blue island of tropical nightlife, contemporary cocktails and all-day refreshment. It seats 180.

Situated alongside the beach, the à la carte Paul & Virginie specialises in authentic island cuisine: fresh seafood, healthy meals and poolside snacks. Enjoy afternoon tea and delicate pastries or come down at night for a sophisticated dinner of scallops, oysters, mussels, giant prawns or lobster, smoked to order, grilled or steamed. Paul & Virginie seats 125 people.

The wood-and-thatch Beach Bar offers some of the resort’s finest views. This, the ultimate meeting place for punches, cocktails, fresh fruit juices, milkshakes or espressos, also offers a light menu of Mauritian favourites, pizza, burgers, sandwiches and exotic ice cream. It seats 75.

Citronella’s Café at Sugar Beach, which seats 120, allows guests to gaze over the water as they savour the delights of the Mediterranean’s sunny cuisines – from light tasty snacks to the best Italian dishes – in Citronella’s handsome dining room or in the shade of the café’s teak terrace.

Set in an aromatic spice garden, the unique La Badiane invites patrons to experience traditional Mauritian dinners, created using the finest, freshest local ingredients. La Badiane seats 40.
