Don't just take our word for it! See what a Brtish Airwways Flight Attendant has to say abou this resort on his short VBLOG video below!
This modern four star hotel lies in over 200 acres of natural beauty on the edge of the Indian Ocean. Spacious grounds, comfortable rooms, private location and a friendly atmosphere offering spectacular views of the surrounding islands, forested mountainsides and glorious sunsets.
Flanked by several small, private beaches forming part of the large bay at Anse Bois de Rose. Prevailing winds and tides can cause a buildup of seaweed during certain times of the year (typically, from time to time during the May to October period), however, guests always have access to ample sun-bathing areas; large sand-terraces; palm tree strung hammocks, and sun loungers.
The three magnificent pools, one in the unique shape of a Coco de Mer, overlook the Indian Ocean and the other – perched on a granite outcrop with a 270 degree view of the ocean – at the Black Parrot Junior Suites and our Over Ocean natural salt water pool that cascades back into the sea.
Complimentary – private bus shuttle transfers to Anse Lazio beach are available to our guests several times weekly. Guests can either stroll or use the hotel’s bicycles to access the many private sandy beaches and coves that dot this coastline.
