Blumarine AttitudeHotel in Grand Baie
Hidden from view behind an impressive carriage entrance door in oak and concealed within an old coconut grove bordering the water’s edge, lies one of the best kept secrets of Mauritius: the Hotel 20°Sud, the first on the island to offer both the luxury and excellence of a five-star establishment within the dimensions of an attractive, privately run hotel.
A true haven of refinement and exclusivity: this small, intimate hotel comprises 36 bedrooms decorated with antiques as well as furniture and furnishings from the Belgian interior decorator Flamant Home interiors. It is situated in exceptional surroundings not far from the Pointe aux Canonniers at the mouth of the beautiful bay of Grand Baie. Not ostentatious luxury but far more: elegance and refinement which really give you the feeling of being in a world apart, of belonging to a club of the initiated!
The hotel boasts a very privileged location on the edge of the lagoon, just at the mouth of the bay, offering novices as well as experienced yachtsmen and women the opportunity to satisfy their passion. The wind direction, usually “inshore”, provides a degree of security. Several windsurfs are available for your use and are equipped with sails of different sizes. A Hobie Cat 15 catamaran, and a Laser are also at your disposal. Kite surf courses can be organized on request (however please note that reservation before your arrival is required!).
Our own diving club, the “Mascareignes Plongées” (Mascarene Diving) was established in February 2005 and became the first Nitrox diving centre to be recognised by the authorities. The monitor, Jean Lincoln, a two-star MSDA/CMAS instructor, (Nitrox and Gas Blender), first aid worker, O2, AED DAN and Red Cross instructor as well as being an underwater photographer, will share his passion for the flora and fauna of the Mascarene Islands with you (giant morays, carangues, rays, sharks, turtles, dolphins…) and take you to some enchanting sites (numerous shipwrecks and coral reef only 5 minutes from the hotel).
