Auberge De Saint-Aubin, Mauritius
This charming boutique Inn is set within acres of lush tropical vegetation, complementing the quaint creole style of the house itself. Featuring three unique rooms, each with a different theme to reflect the culture of the island and the Indian Ocean, which can be booked individually or the entire lodge can be booked as an exclusive, private retreat for large groups, families or special occasions.
The Creole Room is furnished with a double bed, two twin beds and a private shower room making it perfect for families. The room is bright and uses light tones of green and cream to make the most of the natural light whereas the Indian Room features burnished orange walls and dark wood furnishings such as the four poster bed in the master bedroom and the two single beds in the adjacent room. The Colonial Room however has a calmer and neutral colour palette filled with natural light and white and cream fabric.
The Inn is based on the grounds of an original 1819 Colonial House and sugar cane plantation which looks amazing framed by the manicured lawns with a backdrop of tropical trees and flora. On the grounds is The Saint Aubin Residence, originally home to the owner of the plantation and built using recycled wood from dismantled ships this grand house was taken down and rebuilt on a site further away due to the noise pollution of the sugar mill and in the 1990’s the house underwent a significant restoration and is now a table d’hôtel restaurant.
Saint Aubin is a cultural heritage sight and tourist destination thanks to The Vanilla House, the sugar cane plantation and rum distilleries. Guests are welcome to explore the distillery and taste some of the fine rums produced on site or discover the process of growing and harvesting of the amazing vanilla bean at The Vanilla House.
