To the point Read our review of Le Méridien Ile Maurice, a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program.

Located on the northwest coast of Mauritius at Pointe aux Piments, Le Méridien Ile Maurice is a five-star hotel offering an idyllic setting for an unforgettable vacation. Nestled in the heart of lush vegetation and bordered by a sandy beach, the hotel invites you to relax and get away from it all.

Renovated in 2022, the establishment offers a wide range of spacious, elegantly decorated rooms and suites, all with breathtaking views of the ocean or tropical gardens. The hotel is ideal for families, couples and friends.

Le Méridien Ile Maurice - Booking

We booked this 6-night stay with our Marriott Bonvoy points to take advantage of the fifth night free. We did this during the holiday season between Christmas and New Year’s for a total of 150,000 points instead of $8,200.

Typical prices range from $500 to $600 a night, or even $1,200 during the holiday season.

Le Méridien Ile Maurice - Location

Le Méridien Ile Maurice is located in Pointe aux Piments in the northwest of the island. Its location is ideal for visiting Trou aux Biches, Grand Baie or the small village of Cap Malheureux and its emblematic red-roofed chapel. The famous Pamplemousse Garden is just 20 minutes away.

From Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam (MRU) airport, it’s an hour’s drive to the hotel.

We were greeted by hotel staff who quickly took charge of our luggage. We were comfortably seated in the lobby with a fruit juice and fresh towels while the receptionist completed the formalities.

Le Méridien Ile Maurice - Rooms

We were upgraded to an Ocean Sky junior suite with two double beds even though we had booked a basic junior suite.

In the room, welcome gifts awaited us: hats, wine, fruit cups and macarons.

Le Méridien Ile Maurice 15

All rooms have a bathroom with shower and bathtub.

A lounge area with a sofa and armchair for relaxing after a day’s visit to the Pamplemousse Garden or a visit to the Land of 7 Colors in Chamarel. However, a lounge table for a drink, for example, is lacking.

There’s a desk and a cabinet with minibar and safe.

Finally, we really enjoyed spending time on the balcony enjoying the sunset.

Le Méridien Ile Maurice - Breakfast

Breakfast is served buffet-style at the Nomad from 6am to 10:30am. The rest of the time, this restaurant serves international cuisine (lunch and dinner). Breakfast can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors, with magnificent views of the ocean and pool. Outside, however, you need to be vigilant, because if you leave your plate unattended, birds will be on the lookout to bite into your plate.

The buffet offers a wide range of pastries, hot dishes and crudités.

Le Méridien Ile Maurice - Restaurants

Le Méridien Ile Maurice invites you on a gastronomic journey through its various restaurants. During our stay, we tried out a few of them:

  • The Kumin: authentic Indian restaurant with tandoori specialties and tasty curries, open for dinner only.
Le Méridien Ile Maurice 23
  • The Paparazzi: Italian restaurant just before the adult area.
  • The Zoli Mamzel: Restaurant serving grilled meats and Mauritian fusion cuisine.

Overall, the food is tasty and prices are not prohibitive for hotel restaurants. However, if you have a car, you can find restaurants at much more affordable prices.

Le Méridien Ile Maurice - My overall impression

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at Le Méridien Ile Maurice over the holiday season. The hotel has been freshly renovated and now offers an exclusively adults-only area, which we appreciated. This hotel offers activities and facilities for families with children, couples and friends alike.

We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty and duration of the fireworks on December 31. This hotel offers great value for Marriott Bonvoy points, we will definitely return.
