Princesse Bora

This relaxed and stylish privately-owned eco lodge lies on the tropical shores of Ile St Marie and is everything you hope it will be, with the lobby area a simple mix of polished drift wood, smooth stone and colourful cushions, setting the scene.

Each of the open-sided villas, are stylishly furnished with creatively designed hanging beds and spotless bathrooms with the uncluttered interiors all cool white washed walls and dark wooden shutters. The large wrap-around verandas look out across the ocean or lodge grounds, where wooden walkways thread through the colourful tropical gardens, leading to the excellent restaurant, which not only has superb wine cellar, but serves the freshest food, with mouth-watering Creole, French and Malagasy influences.

There is also a great little spa (the pirogue tubs are a nice touch) offering a huge range of essential oil treatments and therapies, but for those who want to stay busy, you can enjoy mountain biking, snorkelling, diving, fishing, quad-biking, 4x4 excursions to the hotels own private beach at Coco Bay or of course, enjoy some of the world's finest whale watching between June and September. A wonderful mix of south pacific colour and Indian Ocean charm.
