Lonely Planet review
On a hill overlooking the sea, Le Grand Bleu has spectacular views from its terrace restaurant. The star attraction is the dazzling infinity pool; the hotel is also three-minutes’ walk from a lovely beach. The bungalows are very pretty, with wood floors, four-poster beds and mosquito nets. Each has its own terrace and hammock. Simpler bungalows are €30 a night.
Half- and full-board plans are available.
Le Grand Bleu offers all sorts of excursions and activities including sailing, scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaking and cycling, as well as massage. A kitchen garden supplies the restaurant, and owners Jacques and Céline are involved in supporting the local community. The hotel is about 3km from Andilana.
Our independent authors have visited Le Grand Bleu and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in The West Coast.
