Hotel Plage de Bougainville , a newly-built 84-room boutique resort in the heart of the charming town of Anse Royale in Mahé Island’s pastoral south, offers a fully-integrated village experience featuring a full suite of amenities, facilities and services, both on-site and in the vicinity.
Dedicated to the persona of celebrated explorer Louis Antoine de Bougainville, the inspired, contemporary interior design with its unique colonial undertones proposes the perfect stepping stone for guests to discover the rich cultural history of the area and the islands.
Anse Royale which, translated from the French, means king’s bay is, today, effectively Mahé Island’s most important district outside the capital.
Steeped in history from the very beginnings of the first settlement of the islands by the French in 1770 on account of the establishment of an ill-fated spice garden in its environs to rival the spice gardens of the East India company, Anse Royale has preserved its prominence.
Framed by a crescent shaped, reef-locked bay famous for its crystalline waters that remains one of the most popular and spectacular swimming locations on the island, Anse Royale hosts a range of banks, restaurants, schools, hospital, pharmacy, petrol station, boutiques, supermarkets and grocery stores as well as a charming local market selling vegetables and fish.
The hotel is masterfully configured to accord with the latest trends in hospitality ergonomics, the hotel features one senior suite located on the upper floor featuring a private pool and deck overlooking the ocean; seven junior suites on the upper floor featuring a private deck overlooking the mountain; forty-three deluxe rooms and thirty-three superior rooms.
