Ness by D-Ocean 

The adventure starts here

A west coast hotel that’s located just steps from the sand and the largest lagoon in La Réunion.

It’s all about the views and proximity to the beach and local bars and restaurants at the low-key, good-value Ness by D-Ocean. You’ll also be well placed for island adventures – the top reason to come to La Réunion. Between helicopter trips and 4x4 excursions, you can paddleboard and kayak on the always-inviting Saline-les-Bains, the largest lagoon in the country, which is just steps from the hotel’s infinity pool. And if you can find some time to head to the spa, we highly recommend it. The menu here features signature Gemology and Esthederm massages and treatments that will melt muscles and soothe away stress.

Why we love Ness by D-Ocean

  • It’s only a short stroll to local eateries, cool bars and nightclubs – ideal if you like to be at the heart of the action

  • Aan enviable setting right on Plage des Salines, a golden sand beach that seems to stretch for miles

  • With the facilities of the resort village of Saint-Gilles on the doorstep, this is a perfect base for island explorations

  • After you’ve hiked, cycled and climbed through the volcanic landscapes, there’s a spa with a menu of muscle-easing massages
