    Salt of Palmar - Mauritius

    Salt puts local back on the map with this small hotel, the antithesis of a resort, filled with thoughtful touches to add meaning to your holiday.

    Sustainable tourism

    This 59-room hotel located on a white sand beach on the east of Mauritius, stands out for many reasons. Firstly, its unique colour palette, designed by French artist Camilla Walala, who took inspiration from the colours of the island, creates a colourful and playful aesthetic. Green from the sugarcanes, turquoise from the ocean and pink from the sunset skies translate to a brightly hued hotel with a bold look.

    • Getting There

      Fly direct from the UK in 14 hours.

    • Need to Know

      The hotel rooms have no TV. There is also a huge emphasis on sustainability so the hotel is single-use plastic-free, there are no buffets and rooms come with refillable water bottles.

    • Cost

      From £1830 per person for a 7 night stay (bed and breakfast), including flights and private transfers.

    And the connection to the island doesn’t stop there. In fact, the hotel has made a conscious effort to relate back to local life, which underpins every area of the hotel. Experiences might include joining a local wedding, or eating freshly cooked shrimps at the lake with the hotels’ fisherman, or learning pottery with the village potter. The spa uses locally harvested salt and has a salt therapy room, the first of its kind on Mauritius, plus yoga and meditation are encouraged, daily.

    Wherever you go, there’s thought and meaning put into the details. Refillable water bottles in the room mean little plastic, the organic garden supplies fruit and vegetable; and there’s a no-fly policy for food.  Best of all, staff are smiley and content, happy to share a Mauritius they’re clearly proud of.
