Mauritius – Canonnier Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa

Commanding spectacular views over the northern islands and sparkling Indian Ocean, Canonnier Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa is a friendly and welcoming resort set on a historic peninsula (home to an ancient lighthouse, the ruins of an old fortress and several old cannons), but it’s the hospitable and relaxed Mauritian atmosphere that makes this a great Mauritius hotel choice. 

Lush, tropical gardens dotted with cascading pools and a string of secluded creeks the resort is the ideal place to relax, plus you are just a short drive away from the entertainment and shops of Grand Baie – so you really do have the best of both worlds. 

All rooms have fresh contemporary Mauritian interiors and the gardens and beach make the most of its peninsula setting. The unique spa is located in the branches of a Banyan tree ideal for a relaxing treat and as with all Beachcomber hotels, there’s a whole host of free land and water sports.

Spa Beachcomber: Providing an authentic tropical retreat from the stress of daily life, Spa Beachcomber at Canonnier has an amazing setting in the branches of a huge Banyan Tree. Built amidst the branches of the ancient banyan tree the treatment cabins are build from thatch and stone and blend effortlessly into the natural surroundings, in fact a rustic, relaxed massage in the tree house setting is a must. The centre offers guests 6 Massage cabins for guests to enjoy a range of massages, facials and beauty treatments.  

Family Holidays: Friendly, welcoming and just a short drive away from the vibrant Grand Baie, your family will love Canonnier Beachcomber. There are plenty of family friendly accommodation options to choose between but we’d recommend staying in a family apartment for extra space and privacy, you can enjoy spacious bedrooms and an extensive terrace area perfect for getting outdoors together. Or perhaps you’d prefer to stay in one of the suites to enjoy great ocean views. 

You wouldn’t want to miss out on teeing off from the iconic Mont Choisy Le Golf course or making the most of the PADI diving programme and we know you can’t wait to treat yourself to a relaxing spa afternoon. So, go ahead and enjoy a little ‘me time’ as you drop the kid’s off for the time of their lives at the kid’s club, from mask making to learning creole and enjoying treasure hunts they will have plenty of stories to share with you and their friends back home.

Mont Choisy Le Golf: In the heart of the northern plain of Mauritius lies a new and exciting golf course, Mont Choisy Le Golf. Set around a new urban development of 250 acres, the course has been designed by Peter Matkovich. As a former professional golfer, Peter Matkovich built his first golf course in 1975 and has since built many more around the world including others on Mauritius.

Mont Choisy Le Golf is an 18-hole championship course set amidst an old sugar cane plantation and is only a few minutes drive from Canonnier Beachcomber.  Guests of Canonnier Beachcomber have access to the preferential tee off times and reduced green fees which include golf carts. The hotel will also provide complimentary transfers to and from the course.
