Having opened in 1987, the Trevani is one of the oldest hotels in Mayotte. Located just a few minutes from the village of the same name, it offers an attractive accommodation option for a holiday on the beach and just a stone's throw from the capital, making it ideal for both couples and families. The accommodation consists of a 5-acre bungalow complex, and whilst a handful of the units have already been renovated, the remainder are still anxiously awaiting their turn. The reception, restaurant and swimming pool are also due to be renovated by the end of the year, meaning that there is a great deal of work to be done.

The Trevani is nestled in a little corner of paradise well away from the road, a twenty-minute drive north of Mamoudzou and a few seconds from the village that gave the hotel its name. Guests staying at the Trevani have the perfect base to explore the landscapes of the north of the island (beaches, islands, forests and traditional 'banga' houses to name but a few) whilst also being close enough to Mamoudzou to enjoy the activities and charm of the capital as well.
The hotel's 29 bungalows are spread throughout its 5 acres of grounds, and most of them offer magnificent views of the beach, with part of the accommodation virtually on the sand itself! Seven of the bungalows have already been renovated and now have new furniture, bathrooms, mains electricity, desk sockets, etc., and solar water heaters and flat-screen televisions were also due to be installed. Management also has plans to build a dozen new maisonettes within the next few years, although the exact date of the works is as yet unknown. In the meantime, all the bungalows, which vary in size, have a bed with a mosquito net, wooden furniture, satellite television broadcasting 12 channels, a telephone, individual air-conditioning, a minibar and a bathroom with a shower or bathtub, small bars of soap and a hair-dryer.
The Trevani is due to be completely renovated in the coming months; in fact, according to the management, the work was due to begin at the end of 2009. The overhaul is to include the swimming pool (teak surround and changing area), dining room (50 new places, a bar area with a navy blue tarpaulin, outdoor kitchen, etc.) and reception, which is currently housed in a small office but which is to be transformed into a truly welcoming area complete with lounge and canvas-covered entrance. The overall feel of the new Trevani is set to change, with a shift away from concrete and an increased emphasis on the open spaces!
Food and drink
The bar restaurant is just a stone's throw from the large beach at the Trevani, and gets very busy on weekends. As well as its beautiful setting, it offers a variety of local products prepared using French techniques, with dishes served either 'à la carte' or as part of a set menu (?17.80 for lunch and ?23 for dinner, including starter, main course and dessert). If you really want to enjoy a good breakfast, try and get there early, as some of the restaurant's best-sellers (pastries, cakes, etc.) run out quickly, and you won't want to go hungry all day!
The brown sandy strip hidden away in the palm trees is undoubtedly one of the Trevani's most charming assets. There are no real facilities (deckchairs, parasols, showers, etc.) here, but the beach is cleaned regularly, and there is also a water sports centre nearby, offering a variety of activities, including jet-skiing lessons and diving as well as deep-sea fishing, water-skiing, tubing and even catamaran cruises, among other things.
Apart from its accommodation, the Trevani also has a small meeting room which can accommodate up to 50 people. Some entertainment is organised during the week, including a jazz concert to accompany your Mechoui dinner on the first Friday of the month and live music every other Friday until 10:00pm or 11:00pm.
