The hotel

Facing sunrise, nestled along the East coast, Trou d’Eau Douce is a fishermen’s village and seaside resort with its still typically “Mauritius as it was” atmosphere. 

Reopened on September the 4th, 2017, the adult only 3-star sup boutique-hotel has been totally refurbished. Stepping in the newly transformed open spaces and bar-lounge area as well as the Creole architecture, immediately convey the atmosphere of a relaxed and peaceful holiday home by the beach. The decoration throughout the hotel, including that of the 58 seaview rooms, is uncluttered and refined. The look is trendy: white, mineral, natural colours and shades of dawn, all reminders of these beautiful sunrises along the East coast. Perfect ingredients for a beautiful holiday! 

Time here seems to have come to a standstill, only interrupted by outings in the lagoon, a petanque or snooker game and siestas under the coconut trees… Indulge in the local Otentik Attitude experiences like the cooking lesson around a very Mauritian recipe or the Otentik Discovery geolocation app to discover a few unknown and genuine addresses off the beaten tracks. From the hotel jetty, direct and free access to paradisiacal Ile aux Cerfs… unavoidable!



The Tropical Attitude offers a wide and varied entertainment program on land or in the water! Make the most of each moment and every activity… fully enjoy this dream holiday in Mauritius!

Full day aboard the catamaran océane
After a first stop at Grande Rivière Sud-Est waterfalls, the catamaran sails towards the sandy bank off the village called Deux Frères. Here you will be able to enjoy a dive in the clear waters of the East Coast or a swim in the lagoon before a very tasty barbecue prepared on board (drinks: water beer and cool drinks included). A dream! Towards 13:00, the Catamaran set sails toward île aux Cerfs… time to sunbathe, swim or shop before returning to the hotel and Trou d’Eau Douce.
