Nestled away on a beautiful island in the Indian Ocean just east of Madagascar, lies a stunning 5* luxury hotel by the name of the ‘Palm Hotel & Spa’. The island itself is Réunion Island, with just under 850,000 inhabitants and an ‘overseas department’ status from France, it’s a sight for sore eyes. As soon as you see this amazing hotel, you’re going to fall in love.. think infinity pools, a multitude of restaurants and unparalleled views of the breath taking island. Watch the sun go down as you enjoy a decadent dinner for 2, or count the stars from the outdoor terrace, with an ice cold Mojito in hand. Réunion Island.. je t’aime!
Réunion Island Hotel – a hotel like no other!
Blending ‘designer comfort, subtle luxury and a Zen atmosphere’ the Palm Hotel & Spa is an island retreat worthy of even the most picky holidaymakers.. everything is quality here. The 5* Hotel has cracking reviews on TripAdvisor, along with a renowned Certificate of Excellence.. you don’t get those for nothing! It is a veritable oasis perched on the brink of the Indian Ocean, and the views over Grand Anse Bay are not to be sniffed at.
The rooms themselves are idyllic Creole villas, tucked away in a 3.5 acre, perfectly manicure tropical garden. You can also have the option of staying in one of the three clifftop lodges, hidden from the main path. No matter where you stay, each room will include everything you could possibly need for a (more than) comfortable stay on Réunion Island. Facilities also include Wi-Fi and a Smart TV, so although you’re right in the heart of nature here, you’re never too far from the action technologically.
You’ll be feeling a bit peckish by the time you have explored around the resort a little.. you’re in luck, as the culinary opportunities here are world class! Check out The Deck for delicious Creole influenced dishes, The Makkasar for gastronomic delights, Kah Beach for a delicious meal with an even better beach view, and last but not least, The Kokoa for a drink (or two!) whilst you chill out. The service and hospitality here is truly second to none, you’re sure to feel like royalty.
Holidays are a time to be in your most relaxed state, so why not check out the AKÉA SPA & BEAUTY centre? A totally Zen environment with strong Asian influences, you can expect to enjoy use of the Turkish bath, jacuzzi, fresh water waterfall, massage hut, couples massage opportunities and various treatment rooms. Reconnect with yourself and forget about the stresses at home.. even if just for one day!
Whether you’re a serial sun worshiper or an activity aficionado during the day, there’s something for everyone here. Bask in the 2 swimming pools (complete with in-pool elliptical cross trainers!) or beat your personal score at mini golf, table tennis or Pétanque – you’re in good hands!
Réunion Island is such a beautiful and unique holiday destination and I think this hotel is the perfect way to experience both the nature and culture up close. I can promise you it’ll be the trip of a lifetime!
