Blue Margouillat 

Calm, comfort and beauty

A gorgeous boutique hotel combining stylish Creole architecture with bespoke art and fine dining.

With a name meaning ‘blue gecko’, this white-walled, turquoise-roofed spot is more like a beautiful house, with a fabulous art collection hung throughout the property and sculptures in the gardens. After a day’s sightseeing around the island, this Relais & Chateaux hotel is the perfect place to unwind.

Why we love Blue Margouillat

  • It’s an intimate and sophisticated retreat with all the luxuries and charm you’d expect from a Relais & Chateaux property

  • Thanks to its west-coast high on a hill overlooking the bay of Saint-Leu, the sea views and sunsets are breathtaking

  • The restaurant has a well-deserved reputation for excellence and a superb wine list to match

  • From June to September, you can spot humpback whales without even leaving the hotel

The all-day restaurant’s imaginative and beautifully prepared dishes and the individual service in the bar make every drink and meal a culinary event.

L’éveil des Sens
The gourmet restaurant is an elegant setting for breakfast (buffet), lunch, afternoon tea and dinner filled with local flavours. The innovative tasting menus and excellent wine list are the perfect ingredients for a memorable candlelit dinner.

The Bar
There are views of the bay of Saint-Leu to accompany your drinks at the hotel bar, whether you opt for a pre-dinner aperitif, an after-dinner ‘rhum arrangé’ or a cocktail from the No A (as in ‘alcohol-free’) list.

The five-course Vegetal set menu will open your eyes to just how delicious vegetarian cuisine can be.
