An invitation to enter and continue on the path of discovery...

The experience that unfolds before the eyes of visitors – regulars and first-timers alike – lives up to the promise. En route to the reception, the lobby painted over in new shades of light grey boasts a stylish atmosphere.

A central feature of the hotel, the bar is dressed in a chic new look with bright and clear tones blending harmoniously with modern furniture; on the walls, paintings by the Mauritian poet and artist, Malcolm De Chazal, add a zest of local colour.

The very first guests to stay at the hotel since the reopening have been delighted by the new set-up and the lounge areas now available at the bar, which was unveiled to them during a very friendly cocktail gathering in the evening of Tuesday 28 July. Paradis has reopened on schedule and I am delighted to welcome back our guests in a renewed and embellished setting. I wish to thank all the teams involved – outside workers and the hotel’s personnel alike – for their splendid work,  says Jean-Louis Pismont, General Manager of the two Beachcomber properties on Le Morne Peninsula.

The delicious feeling of freshness can also be enjoyed at the Kids Club. A new pool has been added within its secure enclosure and each area is now clearly demarcated – a reception area with lockers painted in beautiful colours for the kids’ belongings, completely refurbished baby changing facilities and a revamped buffet area with a light background and decorated with different shades of blue.

With regard to leisure and recreational facilities, the boathouse has been renovated. A yoga platform as well as a gazebo for weddings and special dinners have been set up at the Pointe des Pêcheurs , facing the western mountains. The facilities at the Sports Centre have also been improv

World Travel Awards is acknowledged across the globe as the ultimate travel accolade and celebrates since 1993 those organisations that are pushing the boundaries of industry excellence.

Royal Palm, which offers internationally acclaimed levels of excellence and service, won the Award for Mauritius’ Leading Hotel Suite at the Oscars of the travel industry. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Beachcomber’s grand luxury hotel collected its second award in three years after being named Mauritius’ Leading Boutique Hotel in 2013.

Situated on the majestic Morne Peninsula, Paradis Hotel & Golf Club has received the award for Mauritius’ Leading Family Resort. This is the hotel’s third accolade within the past decade. Paradis has previously clinched the award for Mauritius’ Leading Golf Resort twice in 2007 and 2012.

Furthermore, Sainte Anne Island came out on top in the category Seychelles’ Leading Family Resort. Surrounded by one of the largest marine parks in the Indian Ocean, Sainte Anne Island claimed the accolade for the second time, after first scooping the honour in 2005.

Each year, World Travel Awards covers the globe with a series of gala ceremonies staged to recognise and celebrate inpidual and collective successes within each key geographical region. All regional winners then compete in a final round of voting to decide who will triumph in the world awards. The winners will be announced on the night of the Grand Final, which will be held on 12 December 2015 in Morocco.

These awards are the latest in a long list of prestigious accolades received by Beachcomber hotels since the beginning of 2015.  

In addition to the upgrading of certain common areas of the hotel, all Junior Suites have been given a facelift.

With all these new features, a visit to Paradis has become a must!
