the eastern coast of Madagascar. The new RIU hotels are located in the south-east of the island, 60 kilometers from the country’s capital, Port Louis, and 60 kilometers from Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport.
The beaches of Le Morne, with their white sand and crystal clear waters protected by a coral reef are
Simply stunning. The Le Morne Peninsula is a natural paradise and a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its beauty and symbolism. It is dominated by Brabant, a mountain of basalt rocks over 550 meters above sea level, which has become the symbol of the abolition of slavery after having served for years as a refuge for fleeing slaves.
Lagoons, rivers, waterfalls, forests, rare native flower species and a rich fauna make up the natural landscape
richness of this island which, with the warmth of its climate and the cultural diversity of its inhabitants, is one of its major attractions.
