Let yourself be transported to the romantic and intimate world inspired by the classic novel by Bernardin de Saint-Pierre. This charming little gem, with its breathtaking view of the northern islands, is intended as a haven far from the world and its madding crowds. This hotel and spa is the perfect hideaway for lovers. Here time stands still and romance hangs in the air like a heady perfume. This idyllic love nest brings couples closer together as it has the power to fan the flames of l’amour like no other setting.

Located in the fishing village of Grand Gaube on the north coast of the island, near Grand Bay and the main attractions of the island, Veranda Paul Virginie Hotel & Spa transports all its guests to a warm and elegant world. In this ideal setting for couples, time is no longer important…enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the place as the comings and goings of small traditional sailing boats or “pirogues” shape its own slow rhythm on the horizon.

Veranda Paul Virginie Hotel & Spa has 81 rooms of refined comfort, all looking out over the stunning scenery of the lagoon, dotted with islands … a real postcard view! Veranda Paul & Virginie has two restaurants: the Isle de France, overlooking the Grand Gaube lagoon, where you can discover the culinary treasures of Mauritius and Le Saint Géran, the ‘rendez-vous’ par excellence for lovers for a candlelight dinner on a jetty. The Poudre d’or bar is the meeting place for cocktail fans. Not to mention our wellbeing facilities with two swimming pools and the Seven Colours Wellness Spa which offers a range of personalised treatments in an intimate and cosy setting.

Veranda Paul & Virginie offers a real cocoon of romanticism… an ideal setting for your wedding or honeymoon.


All of our 81 rooms are bright and breezy. The decor combines local wood and wrought iron, and is designed around natural colours with a touch of trendy grey. But it is in the details that you will find special charm, like the old prints taken from Saint-Pierre’s romantic novel.

COMFORT ROOM: the rooms described as “Comfort” are spaciously designed for couples to have a most comfortable stay with us. Facing slightly north, these rooms command good views of the beach and lagoon.

SUPERIOR ROOM: this category of room has two beds – comfortably accommodating three people. The bed linen and curtains perfectly blend with the gentle colours of the room producing a feeling of harmony and wellbeing.

PRIVILEGE ROOM: all very large, these rooms have generous spaces that are used very judiciously. Facing both the garden and the ocean is a terrace framed by a pergola covered in pink bougainvillea.


RESTAURANT “ISLE DE FRANCE”: the Isle de France main restaurant, overlooking the lagoon, serves an innovative Mauritian cuisine, with dishes revealing local flavours, spices and colours. It offers an ‘à la carte’ or theme buffet menu which enables you to savour the island’s delicious cuisine. (Vegetarian options available)

RESTAURANT AND BEACH BAR “LE SAINT GÉRAN”: situated on a sandy pier surrounded by water in a typical Mauritian rondavel, the Le Saint Géran beach restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and offers mostly seafood ‘à la carte’ menus with daily specialities and local dishes. (Vegetarian options available)

BAR “POUDRE D’OR”: situated around the pool and in front of the sea, the Poudre d’Or bar is open for refreshments under the morning sun, teatime with pancakes in the afternoon and exotic cocktails at sunset.
