Last year, The Royal Palm Mauritius closed for a five-month renovation project that not only transformed the resort’s façade, but also overhauled the suites. The idea was to enhance the aura of exclusivity at the self-proclaimed six-star resort, by reducing the capacity from 84 to 69 suites. Thirty Junior Suites were converted into 15 brand new Ocean Suites, with a total surface area of over 1,000 square feet, plus a private terrace.
The Royal Palm is a flagship for Beachcomber Hotels, which owns and operates eight luxury hotels in Mauritius, an island-resort in the Seychelles, and recently expanded into Morocco with the talked-about Royal Palm Marrakech.
The redesign for the Royal Palm Mauritius was overseen by French designer Amélie Montocchio (who lives in Mauritius); she chose to work with natural materials like stone granite floors, marble and oak. Decor includes Frey fabrics and custom dark wood furniture.
Other new additions at the resort include a beautiful beachside pool and La Brezza, a gourmet Italian restaurant.
