Le Paradise Cove

Top choice resort in Cap Malheureux

A five-star, adults-only boutique resort aimed at honeymooners, understated Paradise Cove is as luxurious as its name suggests – it won first prize for the Indian Ocean’s Leading Boutique Hotel at the 2016 World Travel Awards and inhabits an attractive small cove. The beach is at the end of an inlet, which gives it remarkable privacy.

Other great touches include a golf course, tennis courts, free watersports, a dive centre and 'love nests' on the promontory overlooking the northern islands. With four restaurants, a Cinq Mondes spa and award-winning gardens, this stylish place is a great destination for couples.
