LA PIROGUE MAURITIUS OOZES AUTHENTIC ISLAND VIBES
Experience island bliss at La Pirogue, where guests are invited to embrace the colourful and authentic village vibe that is unique to this destination. La Pirogue, on the sunset coast of Mauritius, epitomises authentic Mauritian culture and heart-warming hospitality.

Guests wanting to savour authentic Mauritian cuisine, have a choice of three restaurants. Sumptuous fresh seafood grilled on the beach at Magenta Seafood Restaurant, which is set under thatched pavilions overlooking an azure blue pool. Wolmar is the heart of the La Pirogue village and hosts themed dinners to honour the culinary variety of the island. Additionally, a Mauritian Barbeque held every week in the nearby tropical gardens accompanied by traditional Mauritian Sega music and dancing to keep the fun going after dark. Sip on coconut daiquiris and sample real Mauritian street food at Coconut Café, which resembles a village market to fully immerse yourself in an authentic local experience.
Van Der Stel Wine Bar for wine enthusiasts offers a selection of 60 wines to sample under the guidance of a sommelier. Spend a balmy Mauritian evening at Medine Bar drinking rum cocktails and listening to live music. The vibrant Le Morne Beach Bar is the place to go for icy beverages and light snacks while watching a magnificent sunset. La Pirogue celebrates island life with music and dance.
