Veranda Paul & Virginie Hotel & Spa

★ ★ ★

Inspired by the classic novel by Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, let yourself be transported to the romantic and intimate world of the Veranda Paul & Virginie Hotel & Spa. This charming little gem is three-star plus hotel, with its breathtaking view of the northern islands, Eight as a haven from the world far from the madding crowd.

Located in the fishing village of Grand Gaube on the north coast of the island, near Grand Bay and the main attractions of the island, Veranda Paul & Virginie Hotel & Spa transports all its guests to a warm and elegant world. In this ideal setting for couples, time is no longer necessary, the beauty and tranquillity of the place are rhythmed by the comings and goings of the sailing boats and the traditional “pirogues” on the horizon.

The hotel has 81 rooms of refined comfort, all looking out over the stunning scenery of the lagoon dotted with islands & a real postcard view! Veranda Paul & Virginie has two restaurants: the Isle de France, overlooking the Grand Gaube lagoon and where you can discover the culinary treasures of Mauritius and Le Saint Géran, the ‘rendez-vous’ par excellence for lovers for a candlelight dinner on a jetty. The Poudre d'Or bar is the meeting place for cocktail fans.

Not to mention our well-being facilities with two swimming pools and the Seven Colours Wellness Spa which offers a range of personalised treatments in an intimate and cosy setting. Veranda Paul & Virginie provides a real cocoon of romanticism… an ideal setting for your wedding or honeymoon.
