Le Cannonier


Furnished with warm tones, wood hues the colour of sunset, rustic thatch roofs and lush vegetation surrounding you wherever you are on the gorgeous grounds of this spectacular resort.  Le Canonnier is located on a prime Grand Bay property, perched on a peninsula with two beaches, each offering a different view. Woven into the legacy of the hotel is a little piece of Mauritius' rich cultural history, blending old and new in innovative, creative ways: The old lighthouse now serves as a venue for the Mini-Club and the wellness centre has been built in the branches of an ancient Banyan tree.

Le Canonnier has always remained a favoured family hotel, with endless entertainment for adults and children alike. Its close proximity to Grand Bay gives you the option of retail therapy, while the hotel's tree-top wellness centre has other therapies on offer to ease weary minds and bodies. Le Canonnier is a vibrant hotel. While it's the resort of choice for the fun-loving fraternity, it's been built with sheer relaxation in mind – the perfect balance for the ideal island holiday.

Have you ever climbed a tree to find a relaxing massage? At Le Canonnier the Wellness Centre has been built into a centuries old banyan tree. Rustic stone steps lead you up among the branches to the wooden treatment cabins that look out onto a pool built of granite rocks. The water reflects the branches above you creating a feeling of 'alone in the forest'. Experienced therapists use treatment methods gained from ancient Indian cultures and their healing hands lull you into a feeling of peace with the world. The treatment cabins open onto a sunny deck for relaxing afterwards.
