Room Types and Facilities Summary
248 rooms in thatched cottage units set in the gardens, all with air-conditioning, feature two single beds, or one double bed, TV with in-house movies, telephone, mini-bar, bath, shower and terrace. Each has a traditional island Pirogue-shaped roof, creating light and airy rooms. All the bedrooms at La Pirogue lead directly onto the beach through the fragrant tropical gardens. The cottages are grouped in small villages laid out in an arc. Each cottage houses one Superior or two Standard guest-rooms. There are also two Royal Suites, each in a more spacious cottage of its own.
Standard Room: There are 200 Standard guest-rooms, some communicating, which is ideal for families. Bathed in light and warmth, with fragrant frangipani flowers delicately disposed here and there and ceiling fans with large blades of marine wood, the guest-rooms and their terraces are an invitation to lazing about and day-dreaming.
Superior Rooms: The 46 Superior guest-rooms, of 35 m2 each, are grouped in small villages immediately fronting the Indian Ocean. Each can accommodate a family of four (provided the two children are under twelve years of age) thanks to a sofa-bed or two convertible armchairs.
Royal Suites: Located in the northern part of the resort, the two 78-m2 Royal Suites: Bougainvillaea and Flamboyant, each occupy a larger cottage. At once very private, with their own private garden, and close to the heart of the resort, they open onto the palm-grove and the sea. Superbly appointed in the refined and elegant Asian style furniture, they are particularly bright and pleasing, with a large bedroom and separate lounge and dining-room. The terrace offers a privileged upfront view of the magnificent beach and crystal-clear sea.
