    Location 5.0 /10

    The hotel is situated on the hills above the town of La Possession, 820 ft above sea-level. It is accessed by way of a narrow winding road, named le Chemin du Boeuf Mort (the Dead Bull's Road). The international airport at Saint-Denis is a 20 or 30 minute away by car, depending on the traffic intensity.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The rooms are actually bungalows, built in the form of wooden cabins and located amid lush vegetation, just below the a la carte restaurant. All the cabins are large (offering a space of about 323 ft²), carefully and warmly decorated. Each room is equipped with a terrace housing a table and 2 wooden chairs, and there is a refrigerator, television, telephone (direct international dialling), a fan (discreet), a mosquito net above the king-size bed, a bathroom with a bathtub, personal skin care products. The toilets are separate. Among the 16 bungalows, 9 of them also have a Jacuzzi bathtub on their terrace.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 2001 and renovated in 2006, the Lodge Roche Tamarin (also known as the Village Nature) is an institution known for the charm of its infrastructures and its elaborate decor. The visitors' book is full of praise. But the remote hotel is hard to reach; the road to get there is winding and very steep for a good mile. Completely built of wood and on stilts, it consists of 16 bungalows in a four acre area on the hills overlook the sea. The lobby, small but welcoming, adjacent to the a la carte restaurant, has a large wooden terrace. Please note that the hotel's owners produce their own wood, and thus create their own furniture, which is rustic and fits in perfectly with the surrounding nature. The lush vegetation has been fully preserved and the buildings are nestled in a sea of greenery. You can access the buffet restaurant, the massage rooms and the 2 small swimming pools through wooden walkways along the trees. The place guarantees peace for couples or families seeking, above all, to rest in an exotic and comfortable ambiance. Note, however, that access is sometimes risky for young children.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Two restaurants located in two buildings serve three meals a day for the hotel's guests. Breakfasts are served buffet style in the restaurant to the right of the reception, near the massage centre. The cottage overlooks the two swimming pools and the ocean on the horizon. Just like the hotel, the setting is neat and pleasant. The food of high quality is varied. For lunch and dinner, visit the restaurant serving a la carte, located near the bar on the vast and beautiful terrace at the rear of the reception. You can taste a variety of local dishes such as Kalahari lamb, curry of Mahi mahi (common dolphinfish), samosas and blood sausages, and also salads, cold cuts, meat and fish. The food is good, served in an enchanting atmosphere.

    To know

    A spa centre opened at the end of 2006. Five bungalows were also added recently.

    The hotel organizes typical evenings sometimes, on the theme of villages in southern Africa in a barbecue area, near the a la carte restaurant.

    The hotel is not located on the seafront, but the famous Hermitage beach (Saint-Gilles) is just a 30 minute drive away.

    Do not forget your mosquito spray as you are in the middle of nature.
