Blue Margouillat

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

With its 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.

Relax around the central pool and soak up the sea views, and in the afternoon pick a dish from the snack cart. At sunset, the chef suggests pre-dinner aperitifs to accompany cocktails on the terrace overlooking the bay of Saint-Leu. Then take a seat at a candlelit table for dinner with innovative fresh produce and local flavours, together with a bottle from the excellent wine list. Finish the evening with a coffee or a home-made ‘rhum arrangé’.

With just 14 rooms, we recommend that you book this hotel early. Each room is classic in style and has a private terrace or balcony. To make the most of the space in the Grand Large Room, the lovely bathrooms – with a freestanding bath and separate shower – are open-plan on a raised platform in the room, sectioned off with voile curtains (there’s a separate toilet). If you’re staying longer, opt for one of the two Creole Suite in Villa & Spa in the gardens below the pool, which have a bedroom and living room, plus an outdoor shower and private Jacuzzi on the sea view terrace.
