Le Cardinal Exclusive Resort is a highly personalised boutique hotel
Sister hotel to the neighbouring Casuarina Resort, Le Cardinal is a much more upscale intimate boutique option with an emphasis on suite-style accommodation and highly personalised attention rather than extensive resort facilities.
It is styled like residential apartments on three floors, all sea-facing. It shares the same good beach with a semi-private cove area plus all of the facilities of Casuarina including spa and restaurant options are available to you on request.
The airport is 60 minutes scenic drive across the island from the southeast to the northwest corner, passing by fields of sugar cane. The lively capital Port Louis is 30 minutes drive along the coast.
The resort town of Grand Baie which its boutique shopping and dining options is a 10-minute drive. The northwest area of the island is generally known as having the most settled weather, especially in the Mauritius winter months (our spring/summer) when the east coast can experience high winds and sea swells.
Le Cardinal has 13 suites, all sea-facing.
There are Ten Junior Suites (51 sqm) with integrated living area. One Duplex split-level suite (84 sqm) and Two Penthouse Suites (87 sqm).
- Swimming pool
- spa treatment room with more extensive services at Casuarina
- Non-motorised water sports
- Acclaimed restaurant
- Lowkey piano bar-style music most evenings
- Le Cardinal operates on a breakfast & dinner basis
Le Cardinal Exclusive Resort is a delightful rather discreet retreat. It tends to promote itself with hushed tones, and the many repeat visitors prefer it that way!
You have the life and action of Casuarina if you wish, or maybe explore Grand Baie, then retreat back to your little oasis.
This part of the island is good for exploring, both land sea, with some of the best dives around. Back on land, there are golf courses (Mt Choisy course is just a few minute’s shuttle) and the famous Pamplemousse tropical gardens are 20 minutes drive. A self-drive car might be considered. The roads are good, the signposts a little less so, maybe expect a short detour.
Well-behaved children are accepted although the appeal is essentially couples-focused.

The capital Port Louis is a lively city with some excellent shopping. For something very different, go to the horse racing, a real fun day, with a weekly meeting each Saturday from May through to November.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
