Your Destination

Mauritius is many people's benchmark for a tropical island paradise. The white sand beaches, turquoise sea and luxurious resorts paint the perfect picture of an idyllic destination. However, in addition to the usual sunbathing, swimming and watersports available, Mauritius also offers a wide range of interesting excursions, historic sights and cultural diversity, from the fascinating capital Port Louis to Creole mansions and beautiful protected wildlife parks.

Due to its history, influences from Chinese, Indian, French and African cultures are all present in day to day island life, from cuisine to music and religion. It is surely this melting pot of cultures, which makes the island and its inhabitants so warm friendly and welcoming. The resort is situated in the village of Trou-aux-Biches, famed for its long stretch of white sandy beach on the north west coast of Mauritius. From here, you are also just 5 km from the lively town of Grand Bay if you fancy exploring some nightlife.

Le Cardinal Exclusive Resort 5*

Differing from the larger hotels on the island, Le Cardinal offers just 13 luxurious suites - all sea facing, with breathtaking views of the bay and direct access to the beach. You can sip your favourite tropical cocktail and relish this romantic setting where sea, sun, sand and serenity combine with fusion cuisine, offering you and your loved ones an ideal moment of happiness.

Some services may incur additional charges, payable locally.
