The 11 thatch-roofed guest rooms at the Lakaz Chamarel are spread around the hotel's gardens, some so well concealed that you wouldn't know they were there, and have all been decorated differently. You can forget about wearing your heels here, too, especially if you're staying in a suite! Various categories of accommodation are available, including 3 standard rooms, 4 superior rooms, a suite on the lake and 3 suites with a private pool, all of which shun modern decor in favour of preserving the charm of the surroundings. This being the case, there are no televisions, minibars or telephones here, and the only safe you'll find is at the reception. The rooms do, however, have air-conditioning, a hair-dryer and bathrobes, and room service is available during the day. The standard room we visited was very colourful but also rather minimalist, making for a truly Zen ambience, whilst the bathroom is located outside the main accommodation and features a slate shower. Hospitality products and mosquito repellent are provided. As for the suites with their own private pool, each of these has a specific theme reflecting a famous Mauritian love story, such as that of the Dame Créole, or Paul and Virginie. All the paintings adorning the walls are originals and are in keeping with the theme of that particular room, whilst the decor as a whole is a combination of ethnic elements. The huge bathrooms are half inside, half outside, and the double washbasins are wonderful!
