Not ostentatious luxury, but elegance and refinement which will give you the feeling of being in a world apart, of belonging to a club of the initiated - THAT is the 20° SUD.
On Pointe Malartic, in a lovely setting between Grand Bay and Pointe aux Canonniers, in the North-West of the island, 20° Sud hotel Mauritius stands on a gorgeous turquoise lagoon in Grand Baie, facing the islands to the North: Coin de Mire, Ile Ronde and Ile Plate...
The location in the heart of a very quiet residential area, at the end of a charming coastal road, makes it restful and calm. The animated holiday village of Grand Baie is only 3 km away. This little " St Tropez " in Mauritius abounds with boutiques, a beautiful crafts market, restaurants (Indian, Japanese, Creole, Chinese) and places for evening entertainment (discotheques, live entertainment, etc.).
For more than 20 years - and one of the first hotels on the island - the magic of the 20° SUD has seduced a number of artists, such as Moustaki, Brassens .... it is here that the famous English writer John Michelet wrote his best seller "Coconut".
Hidden from view behind an impressive carriage entrance door in oak and concealed within an old coconut grove bordering the water’s edge, lies one of the best kept secrets of Mauritius: the Hotel 20°Sud, the first on the island to offer both the luxury and excellence of a five-star establishment within the dimensions of an attractive privately run hotel.
At the 20° SUD, your hosts, who are happy to receive you in their little corner of paradise, will greet you personally. The dynamic Belgian couple has been living in Mauritius for over 6 years. Before coming to the Indian Ocean, they ran the "Ferme des Sources" in Belgium. They very quickly introduced their personal style to the establishment, where service, hospitality and personal attention are a priority.
