Canonnier ~ 4 Star Resort North Coast

Canonnier Hotel ****


Elegant authenticity among ancient history

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, Canonnier Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa is its own category of paradise.

This resort is on a prime Grand Bay property, perched on a peninsula with two beaches, each offering a different view. Woven into the legacy of the resort 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 Kids Club and the spa has been built in the branches of an ancient banyan tree.

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