La Reunion Organised Trips

Creole Cooking Class

Cooking classes are a fantastic way to delve deeper into the local culture and are a unique souvenir, providing you with authentic recipes that can be shared for years to come. Dedicated to teaching the art of traditional Creole cuisine, Jacky from Far Far Kreol begins his class with a stroll through the local market. Unearthing the best local ingredients and chatting with the stallholders, you’ll learn all about their daily lives and the importance of using fresh produce in Creole cooking. Back at the kitchen in Saint Suzanne, learn everything from folding samosas to making a traditional gateau ti-son – a cake made with maize flour – as well as delicious tomato chutney and curry cooked on an open fire. After an action-packed morning, tuck into your authentic creations with the rest of your group while soaking up Jacky’s final cooking tips!

Floating Massage on the Lagoon

While not your average spa day, this unique massage experience overlooking the serene lagoon is sure to leave you and your partner feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Using sea water to moisten the skin, this all natural, full body massage is the epitome of relaxation as the cool sea breeze circles the board and your mind is lulled by the gentle sound of waves. While your partner enjoys their moment of bliss, sip on a detox cocktail from under a parasol along the pristine stretch of sand soaking up the spectacular vistas across the lagoon. Having both experienced this exclusive treatment, your paddle board is transformed into a romantic vessel where you can indulge in a cocktail of your choice and watch the sun set over the lagoon.
