Pure love and literary inspiration at the Adults Only, Virginie and Paul were lovers.
When Virginie drowned on the sailing ship Saint Geran off the Mauritius North East Coast during a cyclone, Paul was so devastated that he died shortly after of a broken heart.
The story was immortalised by JH Bernardin de Sainte-Pierre in 1787 and has become a definition of true love. And so has this resort. Recently renovated this adult only hotel is a romantic hideaway for two. Dotted with sun beds, love nests and hammocks, this is a cocoon of beauty and tranquility.

Isle De France
The hotel’s main restaurant overlooks the immaculate pool and bay, affording a stunning view of the horizon’s innumerable hues of blue. You will have a chance to taste the subtlety of the local flavours - spices and seasonal produce - or stick to what is comforting. Our combination of Mauritian and international cuisine served table d’hôte or buffet style is bound to please every palate.
Le Saint Géran
The beach bar and restaurant, Le Saint Géran - named after the shipwreck made famous by Bernardin de St-Pierre who wrote a novel around it -, is located at the end of a jetty. Under the thatch-roof, a hallmark of Mauritian architecture, you will savour platters of freshly caught seafood and Veranda Resorts’ signature dishes. The seaside restaurant has a mystique aura to it, which is somewhat enhanced come nightfall.
Poudre d’Or Bar
An elegant decor and unblemished views of the Grand-Gaube lagoon - one of the island’s largest - make the Poudre d’Or the perfect place for a mid-afternoon break. Indulge in a coffee, a cocktail or an after-dinner liquor at the bar. For a late afternoon pick-me-up, opt for savoury snacks or crêpes. Come evening, a laid-back island ambiance settles in with live music and shows.
Mobile Food Kiosk
Pop up street food kiosk offering local cuisines.
Complimentary twice weekly shuttle service to Grand Bay (pre-booking at reception required)

WELCOME TO MAURITIUS
Friendly, inviting and relentlessly beautiful – welcome to Mauritius! Beaches, temples, lagoons, rainforests, reefs, waterfalls, shopping, dining… Mauritius has it all. For the adventurous and active, the array of options is endless; from scuba diving and snorkelling to sailing and deep sea fishing, or water-skiing and parasailing, kite surfing and yoga, quad biking and horse riding – you name it, Mauritius has got it.
Mauritius was a Dutch colony in the 1600’s until it was occupied by the French in the 1700’s and then it became a British Colony in the 1800’s. It gained independence from Britain in the late 1960’s after almost 200 years, and finally became a Republic in 1992.
LANGUAGE & CULTURE
Due to its multicultural diversity, Mauritius boasts a number of spoken languages. With immigrants from Africa, India, France, the UK and China, there is a vast mixture of cultures, languages and traditions. Both English and French are generally accepted as the official languages (with French being the most dominant), and Creole being the most commonly used language on the street.
The island is blessed with a tropical climate and is a fantastic year-round destination. Temperatures range from the low to mid-20s°C in the cooler months (April to October), up to the late 20s°C and early 30s°C during the gorgeous summer months from November to March.
Mauritius is 2 hours ahead of South Africa
The monetary unit is the Mauritian Rupee (Rs) which is divided into 100 cents. Major currencies such as US Dollars and Euros, and even South African Rands, are accepted in most hotels and by many vendors. You don’t need to schlepp to get forex before you travel to Mauritius, you can literally convert Rands to Rupees on arrival at the airport or simply draw local currency at an ATM.
WHAT TO DO IN MAURITIUS
