The first SALT hotel had to be in Mauritius. It’s an undeniable, exotic beauty. Volcanic, white, blue and green. It’s Indian, French, Creole, Chinese and African. Its colours, stories, customs, sounds, and flavours form a brilliant, heady mix that is impossible to ignore or forget. If you experience it.
That’s why SALT of Palmar was created. Mauritius is ripe for exploration, drenched in history, and bursting with humbling heritage and modern culture. Locals designed, built, and furnished SALT. Locals manage and run SALT. They also make the food and the music. It’s a vibrant, joyful place designed by an artist who believes that colour = happiness. Inspired by the island’s upbeat vibe, SALT of Palmar pops with energy against a mellow natural backdrop. This 59-room hotel does things differently. The farm supplies the restaurant. There’s a salt room in the spa, and the chance to restore your equilibrium throughout. There are no buffets, fixed TV screens, or single-use plastics. Just everything you need. Or didn’t know you did. Stay. Visit. Get to know Mauritius with SALT and Private Ocean Islands.
