20º SUD (a boutique hotel)             Grand Bay

Hotel 20°Sud (20°South) is the first and only ‘boutique’ hotel on the island of Mauritius, petite and luxurious, in a scenic beachfront, tropical setting. This charming haven of refinement and serenity offers 28 rooms and 6 suites just steps from the sea, in a small coconut grove surrounded by private estates, and set on the waterfront overlooking the elegant location of Grand Bay.
The decor of the hotel is exclusively by the Belgian interior designer FLAMANT Home interiors.

The hotel is managed by the proprietors themselves, Anne and Michel Bourgeois, who are proud to maintain a very discreet, stylish and friendly ambience in keeping with the hotel’s unique concept.

On Pointe Malartic, in a lovely setting between Grand Bay and Pointe aux Canonniers, in the northwest of the island, 20° Sud stands on a gorgeous turquoise lagoon in Grand Bay facing the islands to the north: le Coin de Mire, Ile Ronde and Ile Plate.…
The location in the heart of a very quiet residential area, at the end of a charming coastal road, makes it restful and calm. The animated holiday village at Grand Bay is only 3 km away. This little « St Trop » in Mauritius abounds with boutiques, a handsome crafts market, restaurants (Indian, Japanese, Creole, Chinese) and amusing places for evening entertainment (discotheques, cabarets).

The hotel
The address is more than 20 years old and the site was among the first tourist accommodations in Mauritius. The magic atmosphere has already charmed many artists like Moustaki, Brassens … and this was where the English author John Michelet wrote his best-selling thriller "Coconut".
20° Sud is the first (and only) hotel in Mauritius that is both small and luxurious. Like the Moroccan Riads or some famous hotels in Provence, it proposes charm, intimacy and refinement.
The decoration has been chosen exclusively from the Belgian decorator FLAMANT, and the rooms offer several themes, all emphasizing the personal atmosphere that corresponds to this kind of accommodation. Every room is unique and all the objects in it were chosen separately, down to the smallest detail, for an atmosphere "just like home" that will delight those who enjoy warm, intimate lodgings.
At 20° Sud, you will be welcomed on arrival by the proprietors who are happy to be your hosts and to share their own personal paradise with you. This dynamic couple has been living in Mauritius for more than six years. Before setting up in the Indian Ocean, they managed the «Ferme des Sources» in Belgium, where they succeeded in adding a personal touch to the site in no time, to offer exceptional service, with a warm, personal welcome.

The lodgings

The Hotel has 28 rooms and 6 suites, some of which are less than 10m from the beach !  They are divided into four categories: the “Charm” rooms, the “Beachfront” rooms, the “Suites” and the “Austral Suites”.

All the rooms are air-conditioned and have a beautiful terrace which looks onto the attractive coconut grove bordering the sea.

The rooms are tastefully furnished and equipped with queen-size bed, safe, plasma extra flat screen television (17 channels), multimedia system giving access to more than 160 movies, telephone and free access to WIFI internet. NB : (for those wishing to download heavy files, a very high speed pay connection is also available) 

A minibar and tea- and coffee-making facilities are at your disposal. The “Beachfront” rooms, the “Suites” and the “Austral Suites” are equipped with a Nespresso® machine. Those rooms provide also Ipod/Iphone® docks.

Each bathroom is equipped with an old style bath, a separate shower and two wash basins built into a beautiful wooden surround.  The suites additionally have either an outdoor hot tub (Jacuzzi®) or a small private swimming pool.

The 4 new Austral Suites are the ultimate in “20° Sud” refinement, a dream setting and an extraordinary view...positioned just a few meters from the ocean’s edge with a beautiful view across the bay. These suites represent the very essence of the concept 20°Sud. They are all different, offering a surface area of more than 80m2.  They are each equipped with a small private plunge pool overlooking the sea, for those on the ground floor and for those on the first floor, with a large Jacuzzi®.
Their terraces are less than 2m from the water and the breathtaking view gives you the impression of literally being on board a boat.  The blue of the sea is so omnipresent that it, alone, creates an exceptional setting..
