A peaceful natural retreat

An enchanting boutique resort in the flourishing hills above the coastal villages of Black River and La Gaulette on the south west of the island, Lakaz Chamarel Exclusive Lodge is a unique alternative to many larger resorts. Made up of just 20 individually decorated rooms and suites set amidst a beautiful natural site, its atmosphere is peaceful and calm with artfully bohemian style touches throughout. There is a restaurant and bar where you can enjoy some local delicacies including fresh grilled fish from the coast, and a spa nestled behind bamboo welcomes you to let go with a massage and sauna experience. Just 15 minutes by car from the favoured beaches of Morne and Baie du Cap, you needn't miss the sand, and this journey can also be made by bicycle — hired for free from the hotel.

  • Suites available with private pools
  • Eco-friendly boutique hotel
  • Popular hiking and cycling routes nearby
  • Surrounded by beautiful nature including rare birds
  • Enhance your relaxation with a massage

Location location and mosquitos

kent

There is no disputing that this is a beautiful destination high up in the rain forest 🌳 We originally stayed in Reshma on the lake. Lovely building but very dark inside even with all the lights on. As mentioned in the title there are mosquitoes and reshma is probably the worst affected being on water so request not to stay here. Badly bitten by the pool so although there is a lovely seating area you can’t use it. We moved to a sea view villas. Rempart which is smaller than Reshma and also the pools can be seen by the other villas and people walking to the view point. Massage was lovely and lots of pretty places to take pictures. Loved the weaver birds by the restaurant. Pricilla on reception was charming and very helpful my favourite member of staff. The restaurant. Very disappointed with the standard of food. Soft poached eggs for breakfast. Both times rock hard. Vegetables soup like dishwater. Magic bowl??? Most bland and boring dish ever Crab gratin. With a £12 supplement was sent back. A sloppy mess with water running out of it. Crab not fresh looked like something my cat had chucked up. Waiter was very embarrassed. I advised Francois of this. Said the chef should be sacked. Extortionately priced 🍷 which they then ran out of. I recommend that you bring your own drinks with you. The excuse given is the remote location. There’s a supermarket 15 minutes away where you can buy wine for 400 rupees. The hotel charges a minimum of 1600 rupees. We asked for a guide one day and got Alan. The husband of Peggy who works in reception. Do not use Alan. Would not put his seatbelt on so every time we set off the alarm went off for ages even though I commented on this twice. He answered his phone four times during the day taking lengthy calls. He looked at texts etc whilst driving on narrow roads. He did not get out of the car with us as many other guides did. Did not get taken to chameral rhumery or tea plantation. He has a very laissez-faire attitude. Overall would I recommend lakaz not so sure that I would. They need to up their game in the restaurant then possibly I would.

Fantastic

Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

This place is heaven! Hidden in nature and full of character. Great food - a different menu every night - and a great breakfast buffet as well as made-to-order hot food. Even the standard lodge is amazing, with a gorgeous outside shower which was a highlight for me. The staff are so lovely and very helpful. The yoga sessions are a must - such a great view from the studio and a really great way to start your day. The viewpoint has phenomenal scenery and you can hike up the mound to get a good view of Le Morne. You can also use the bikes for free from the lodge to do some siteseeing The lodge is close to a lot of attractions - the Rum distillery; 7 coloured earths, Chamarel waterfall; black river gorges. Thank you to everyone at Lakaz Chamarel who made our honeymoon stay so lovely
