20 Degrees Sud


20 degrees Sud

Hidden behind an impressive oak carriage entrance door and concealed within an old coconut grove bordering the water’s edge, lies one of the best kept secrets of Mauritius - the Boutique Hotel 20°Sud, the first on the island to offer both the luxury and excellence of a five-star establishment within the dimensions of an attractive, privately run hotel.

The hotel boasts a very privileged location on the edge of the lagoon, just at the mouth of the bay, offering novices as well as experienced yachtsmen and women the opportunity to satisfy their passion.  The wind direction, usually "inshore", provides a degree of security.  Several windsurfs are available for your use and are equipped with sails of different sizes.  A Hobie Cat 15® catamaran, and a Laser are also at your disposalKite surf courses can be organized on request (however please note that reservation before your arrival is required!).

The property offers more than just luxury, it gives you elegance, refinement and delicate taste, the mindset which will make you feel like you are in another world, like you belong to a club of the initiated! This property is not suited for children and also does not cater for children – but personally a great place for couples who also want to experience the night life of Grand Baie as a Free boat shuttle to the city centre on the hotel’s handsome traditional pirogue is offered daily.

Dining is a real treat and an experience at 20 Degrees Sud. Options include dining on board the oldest motor boat in Mauritius – a Gastronomic cruise which is a romantic dining experience under the stars on a 1920 vintage boat Lady Lisbeth and can host a maximum of eight passengers - and then there is the best kept secret in Mauritius dining – the Govenor’s house, a 19th century ruin where they have accommodated an exclusive restaurant where only a few tables are set up in a magical site overlooking the sea in a luxuriant and protected setting.

The Hotel has 30 rooms and 6 suites, some of which are less than 10m from the beach !  They are divided into five categories. All the bedrooms are different – just like home! and are air-conditioned and have a beautiful terrace which looks onto the attractive coconut grove bordering the sea. 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 (except "Cosy" rooms), a separate shower and two wash basins built into a beautiful wooden surround.                                 

Rooms & Suites  - They are 20 m from the water and each has an outdoor Jacuzzi®. The view from their terraces alone justifies their positioning...

Charm Rooms - Although some are more modest in size, all overlook the beautiful coconut grove that opens onto the sea, allowing you to “live” the 20°Sud experience at a reduced rate.  Nevertheless they are totally faithful to the spirit that we sought for this hotel: all different, with a great deal of charm and the furniture and furnishings come from the Belgian interior decorator Flamant Home Interiors®.

Beachfront Rooms - These nine very beautiful rooms, five of which are located on the first floor, are bright, on the waterfront and offer a stunning view of the bay. They are equipped to the standards of the Hotel 20°Sud but as a little extra, like the Suites, Nespresso® coffee machines are also provided.  Their terraces open onto the ocean giving you the impression of living in privileged times as their proximity to the sea is truly unique in Mauritius.

Austral Suites (80sqm) -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.

Spa; American Billiard Table; Bicycles; Free boat shuttle service to Grand Baie
