One&Only Le Saint Géran Unveils Transformed Spa

Blending tropical paradise with a wealth of holistic practises

Located on an exclusive tropical peninsula, flanked by the warm ocean and a tranquil lagoon, One&Only Le Saint Géran has emerged entirely transformed following a multi-million-dollar investment, introducing the legendary resort as a modern-day icon. The reborn One&Only Le Saint Géran is redefining ultra-luxury in the Indian Ocean and beyond, much like it did when it originally opened in 1975.

Long celebrated as the iconic luxury retreat in Mauritius, One&Only Le Saint Géran retains what guests have always loved - a sense of seclusion on its own private peninsula with a beachfront and calm lagoon unlike any other resort on the island. The entire resort has been completely transformed, with dynamic new culinary experiences, new playful swimming pools with cabanas, reimagined public spaces, a stunning new spa, Club One, and a range of ultra-modern facilities.

Nestled within lush tropical gardens, the much-loved colonial-style architecture has been preserved, while a comprehensive redesign process has introduced a cool, contemporary beach-inspired aesthetic, celebrating Mauritian lifestyle and culture. There are 142 newly redesigned guest rooms and suites, with additional interconnecting configurations for families, as well as Villa One – a secluded two-bedroom villa with private infinity-pool and spectacular ocean views.

The elegantly appointed new guest rooms feature gracious living spaces in a contemporary timeless design, retaining a relaxed island feel. A strong focus has been placed on showcasing the magnificent views and surroundings of the resort, with muted hues of warm white marble, teak and greys used for the complete makeover including new furnishings, fabrics and colour schemes to reflect the lush tropical landscapes, the vibrant turquoise Indian Ocean, and the bleached white of Mauritian sand. The sophisticated interiors have been finished with natural materials such as timber, stone, leather and linen, and complemented with bespoke furniture and locally-crafted lithographs to resonate with the tropical Mauritian environment and provide an idyll of understated style. The transformed Villa One, an expansive two-bedroom secluded beach-front home, is the most desired address on the island. Boasting elegant open-plan living spaces with modern amenities, dedicated driveway, private infinity pool and gardens, as well as a dedicated team including 24-hour butler, chef and valet. The exceptional interiors exude light and freshness, showcasing opulent natural materials including marble, silk and leathers, bespoke furniture and locally crafted artwork. An exclusive private estate presenting sensational views over the Indian Ocean, Villa One guests can wander through tropical gardens to reach private beach cabanas positioned on the shore.

Cuisine

The culinary experience at One&Only Le Saint Géran has been completely reimagined by new Executive Chef, Marc de Passorio, from Michelin star restaurant L’Esprit de la Violette in the South of France. Guests can choose to dine at PRIME, One&Only Le Saint Géran’s celebrated and newly transformed steakhouse; Tapasake, exciting pan-Asian, tapas-style fusion cuisine on the edge of the idyllic lagoon; L’Artisan, the new artisanal bakery and specialist coffee lounge; La Terrasse restaurant with its stunning views and celebration of Mauritian, Indian, Chinese and Mediterranean flavours prepared live; and finally, La Pointe beach restaurant at Palm Grove with its idyllic beachfront dining, thatched pavilions and open fire grills. Chef Marc ensures that each dining experience at One&Only Le Saint Géran celebrates Mauritius and its fusion of cuisines, spices, rums and culture, delivering an exciting, world-class experience for guests.

One&Only Spa

The One&Only Spa covers over 1,000 square metres and offers an incredible panorama overlooking the lap pool and lagoon, surrounded by serene water and lush vegetation as well as secluded outdoor gardens for blissful open-air therapy. Prior to, or post treatment, guests are invited to use the new heat facilities including a steam room and sauna, or relax on day beds around the spectacular infinity pool. The thirteen newly designed treatment rooms surround the pool, with some opening onto their own private garden with outdoor showers, truly allowing guests to relax, switch off and feel revived in their very own hideaway.

Continuing its partnership with the award-winning ESPA brand, the One&Only Spa offers tailored holistic experiences, ranging from pure relaxation to unique and signature wellness journeys utilising indigenous and authentic techniques. Complementing this, the resort has partnered with Biologique Recherche, a first for Mauritius, offering bespoke facial treatments, and renowned multi-award-winning podiatrist Bastien Gonzalez to complete the wellness offering.
