Les Jardins d'Héva

Hotel in Hell-Bourg

This relaxing option perched on the southern outskirts of town features five colourful bungalows with a Creole flavour, each with two adjoining rooms; they're all decorated differently. Two glitches: they turn their back on the fantastic views of the Cirque, and lack intimacy (terraces are shared). The real steal is the mini spa featuring a sauna and a Jacuzzi – access is free for guests.

There's an on-site restaurant if you're feeling too lazy to travel elsewhere, and a small gift shop. The owner, Alice Deligey, speaks English.
