Location and Distance to Airport:
Constructed in the northern reaches of Mauritius, Cannonier Resort glimpses into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, with 180 degrees of unimpeded view of the blazing horizon. With this sort of intimacy, it’s little wonder why guests return year after year to soak in the ocean. Only 69 kilometres from the SSR International Airport means that within an hour’s drive you’ll arrive at Cannonier’s pristine grounds.
Graceful yet real, fun-loving and vibrant yet tinged with the remnants of a strong historical foundation; Cannonier has a character that is truly one of a kind. Enriched with the warm hues of island fabric, strong wooden trimmings, thatched roofing and endless enclaves of swaying vegetation, Cannonier teaches guests to believe in paradise again.
Within the Grand Bay property and sitting on a peninsula surrounded by two sides of beach, Cannonier offers guests the choice of beach settings as well as other views. It’s here that you can relax while your children revel in the entertainment of the mini club, housed in the historic lighthouse.
The understated yet opulent décor and layout of each room has been designed to expand the views of the ocean and beachfronts. This allows a natural light to filter into the rooms in a way that is gentle and unimposing. Choose from your choice of sea views and tropical garden vistas, all infused with island charisma and modern trappings.
The Standard and Superior rooms, along with the Family Duplexes offer guests the choice of the ocean or garden views they’d prefer. The Garden Facing Apartments and intimate Suites create new ways to experience Mauritius scenery. Whichever you choose, each room has the comfort of a twin or king-size bed, to take your sleep to new levels of relaxation.
Restaurants and Bars:
Le Navigator Bar takes intimacy and quiet during the day and turns it into pumping vibrancy from 11pm, where it becomes a nightclub. Le Navigator restaurant looks out over the northern reaches of Mauritius and a sky adrift with the twinkling of innumerable stars.
Le Planteur Bar remains the calm note in the storm. Here you can sip on your drink while you peruse the library within the bar.
La Serenata is the place of warmth, peace and passionate food, secretly stashed among the dense foliage of the palm fronds. Italian cuisine is available for your indulgence 6 nights a week here.
For guests seeking retail therapy, The Grand Bay boutiques are only ten minutes from the resort. Along with all the other Beachcomber adventure and entertainment activities, Cannonier has the added uniqueness of the Tree Top Wellness Centre. Built into the eaves of an ancient Bainyan tree, this spa and wellness centre will delight your senses with its make-believe setting among the branches. Cannonier has also turned an old fortress into a pirate fort, where your child’s imagination can take on the leagues of the ocean and the myths of ancient times.
As far as your imagination can stretch is the real limit to the activities available to you. From the ocean come the wonders of snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing, small-line fishing and trips on the waters in a glass-bottomed boat. All of these marvels will thrill you with the variety of ocean breezes and tropical fish awash in the waters.
You’ll find world class coaching in golf and tennis at every Beachcomber resort. The coaches and trainers are handpicked to have all the qualities of communication, patience and observation to take your game to the next level.
Mountain-biking takes you inland, to peruse the tropical terrain up close. Sandcastle building and beach picnics keep your feet on the sandy shores of the Indian Ocean. Many more opportunities await you to explore the island, but if you’d prefer to pamper yourself and rejuvenate your body, the renowned House of Clarins spas are waiting. If fitness is your value then indulge in a workout at one of the well-stocked gyms. Whichever direction your wishes take you, know that there’s always something to experience with Beachcomber Resort’s array of activities.
