Hotels in Saint-Leu: This is an elegant hotel dominating Saint-Leu's Bay and the Indian Ocean on the island's west coast, situated in a quiet residential area, 300 m from the lagoon. It is very close to sport centres (golf, diving and paragliding) and cultural centres (botanic gardens, coral farm, Stella Matutina museum). This is a 14-bedroom beach hotel and restaurant, with a subtle balance between pure colonial style, dark mahogany, creamy beige linen, and large canvases of modern art. The hotel is a cosy and peaceful Creole mansion, overlooking the Indian Ocean's immensity and under its refreshing trade winds, entirely organised for rest, serenity and the pleasure of all 5 senses. It is also a modern art gallery, presenting abstract painting, sculptures and pottery from local and European artists. Guests are welcomed in a lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out service. There is a hotel safe, newspaper stand and a restaurant on the premises. WLAN Internet access is available and guests can take advantage of the room and laundry services on offer. Those guests who are arriving by car may park their vehicle in the hotel's car park. Each of the soundproofed rooms has air conditioning and an en suite bathroom with a shower, bath and separated toilets as well as a hairdryer.
