Overlooking the lagoon of Isle aux Benetiers surrounded by the hills of Le Morne, you will be sharing the same stretch of stunning beach as the gorgeous 6 star St Regis hotel and Luxe Le Morne....at a fraction of the cost! Just a ten minute drive from the protected beaches of World Heritage Le Morne these contemporary studios [45M2] were completed in August 2011. Eco friendly, decorated using minimal concepts and neutral tones, Beautique studios has the feel of a quality 4 star hotel. Pale concrete floors, with some of the bespoke furniture and doors lovingly made by the owner.A stunning shared roof terrace with giant sunbeds & a cool off shower, Large dining table BBQ Great for sunsets and stargazers the outdoor areas of this stylish property were created with the romantic at heart...snuggle on the sunbed under the stars at night ....giant fruit bats fly overhead. With 2 spacious stylish studios on the upper floor of a villa boasting sea views & additional 2 studios on the lower floor overlooking a mature tropical garden visited by birdlife... every studio has a private dining terrace Private en suite shower room with toilet and bidet .Guest toiletries Cotton towels Super king sized orthopaedic bed 100% cotton sheets changed 1 x per week Private kitchen in each studio with hob, fridge freezer. Microwave. Maid 3 x per week [not Sunday or public holiday. Free WiFi, CD player with iPod dock and charger. Room safe. Air conditioner.

If you don't feel like cooking the best restaurant in the area is a 1 minute walk from Beautique studios

Located 1k to supermarket and bakery. 2k to the ATM : There are several inexpensive and good places to eat within easy reach..... Locally grown fruit and freshly caught fish,venison, tender dark green watercress and the small crisp lettuce are some favourites. Mauritian cooking, diverse as the many races that have ended up here, is a combination of Creole, Indian, Chinese,French and more recently has become even more international with ex-pats from places such as Italy and South Africa. A favourite destination for visitors from all over Europe, there are some good bakeries in the area, and a large local super-market

just a few more miles north of Beautique studio is 'London Way' which has a great deli counter.

For the energetic and adventurous : This area is the destination for Kite and wind surfing, possible to take lessons for any activity if you are not already an expert, Diving courses are locally available.Golf here is world class with spectacular views, whilst tennis, horse riding and deep sea fishing are close by. Beautique studio overlooks the beautiful island of Isle aux Benetiers. This beauty spot is great for a picnic and snorkel expedition and swimming with dolphins. Excursions can easily be arranged leaving from La Gaulette in the morning. Swim with a pod of wild bottle nosed and spinner dolphins ,be sure and book with a responsible operator who will respect the animals and the environment !

A wonderful area for cycling, many are seen training on the local roads for Tour de France. Buses are not very reliable to get around, but are an authentic Mauritian experience,and the mainstay of many Mauritians however a car is essential for this area.

Hiking through one of the nature reserves with an expert guide to point out rare flora and animals can be easily arranged.

Authentic Mauritius, Natural Mauritus: All 4 studios are decorated the same and have the same facilities.

These uncluttered studios have been created to take advantage of spectacular views and the warm breezes that blow off the Indian Ocean. Ideally located to have a different experience daily if an active holiday is preferred. Romantic and intimate these studios are suitably situated for those who wish to have an authentic Mauritian experience. Found in the undeveloped hamlet of Cotteau Raffin near La Gaulette and Le Morne, visitors will quickly feel like a local.

Everyone knows everyone so the area is quite safe [ but please still act responsibly with your valuables !]

The property is fairly peaceful and quiet as it is built facing away from the road, though on the weekend you may hear some music wafting up from the odd fisherman's beach front bungalow or the sound of dogs barking.

About TRISHA VALAYDON

We built this place. We have always dreamed of creating a beautiful place we would enjoy staying in ourselves...Ravin is a native born Mauritian and myself (Trisha) am English. We frequently travel, we love hotels and wanted to create a hotel feel. We are are a romantic couple and wanted to create potential for romance in the outside and inside spaces. We poured our love for this beautiful environment into every nook and cranny and want to express love through this building to our guests.

TRISHA VALAYDON purchased this apartment in 2011

Why TRISHA VALAYDON chose Mauritius West Coast and Center

Adventurers, beach bums, bird watchers and lovers alike will get so much out of this lush green pocket of Mauritius. A quiet area that has not yet been overwhelmed by tourism although there is every amenity close by needed for a wonderful holiday, your neighbours will be mostly Mauritian.

Sunset and rainbow watch while you barbecue a catch of the day, sun worshippers can cool off under the roof shower . At night star gazers can snuggle on the giant sunbed on the roof of Beautique studios. You will share the same stretch of pristine sand as the luxury hotels in Le Morne at a fraction of the price, whilst enjoying more privacy, more space (the rooms are a generous size) and have a much more authentic experience.

Ideal for those looking for daytime action.... there is a chilled out vibe at night with a few good local restaurants and a couple of bars.

What makes this apartment unique

The area of Petite Morne feels like Mauritius would have been 30 years ago, it doesn't take long to feel like a local.... a real gem of a location. All of the nature highlights are nearby

Guestbook comments from the owner

Liked: Very new property - beautifully decorated and lovely styling throughout. Free Wifi - great views over Le Morne. Daily maid service was faultless. Few minutes from Le Morne and the 5 star hotels that are 10 times the nightly price of this place. Great base for kitesurfing.

Fantastic Stay Jan 2013

  • 4 out of 5
Myself and my lovely lady enjoyed a fantastic stay at the Beautique Studios, the apparement was clean and spacious and the bed was a dream.

We stayed in studio 1 and very much enjoyed the morning sun with breakfast!

The roof terrance has fantastic views, but because of the heat and a lack of swimming pool we spent our days exploring or down on the beach, the terrace comes into its own at nighttime and was the perfect spot to enjoy, our seafooddinners fresh from the grill.

The Studio is in a nice location, quite quiet and not to touristy, it is situated close to Le morne Beach, (probably the best beach we found on the island) and also quite close to La Gaulette which has all the basics you will need.

We reccomend staying at the appartments, and arranging car rental from the airport before you arrive.Make sure you go and explore all that Mauritius has to offer, we were there for 2 weeks and only scratched the surface.....

Will we return?

Who knows what the future holds?!

Owner's Response: What a generous review, thanks Joe.
We are returning to Mauritius in April 2013 and will be adding a pergola to the all terraces in the studios (for shade) & another giant sunbed on the roof plus a rain shower to cool off !
Please come back and see us again sometime. Big hug

Schöne Unterkunft in der Nähe von Le Morne

  • 5 out of 5
Das Haus wurde 2010 fertig gestellt, auch die Wohnungeinrichtung ist neu
und in einem guten Zustand. Die Zimmer sind minimalistisch, geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das Bad ist hell und modern. Täglich kam eine Reinigungsfrau,
alles war sehr sauber. In die Küche kann sich mal eine Ameise verirren,
was aber bei dem Klima normal ist.

Besonders ist das Rooftop mit dem tollen Ausblick auf die Bucht, perfekt zum Entspannen nach einem anstrengenden Surftag.

Die Ferienwohnung ist 10 min. mit dem Auto nach Le Morne entfernt, zum nächsten Supermarkt in La Gaulette sind es 5 Min.
Die Lage ist sehr ruhig. Da wir als Windsurfer viel Material dabei hatten, ist man dort auf ein Auto angewiesen. Den Pick-Up haben wir über
Victor (Tour-Operator aus La Gaulette) gemietet, er hat auch die Abholung vom Flughafen organisiert.

Für ein üppiges Frühstück mit gutem Kaffe können wir das "Vanilla House" Richtung Tamarin empfehlen. Der Supermarkt in Tamarin ist etwas günstiger
und mit einer besseren Auswahl.

Wir haben dort wundervolle Ferien verbracht und können es nur empfehlen.

Beautiful South West Mauritius

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic stay at this property which is located along the most stunning stretch of coastline in Mauritius. The views from the rooftop are amazing! Staying here allowed us the flexibility to experience the real Mauritius at our own pace. The property manager was hugely helpful in arranging trips and vehicle hire. The property was very well maintained and is well served by shops and restaurants in the nearby village of La Gaulette. I would definitely recommend staying here.

A perfect vibe in Beautique Studios !

  • 5 out of 5
After having spent approximately14 days on Mauritius and its neighbourisland of Rodrigues, we decided to spent our last days in the area of the stunning La Morne Brabant, where we 'stumbled' upon Beautique Studios. A choice we did not regret.

We decided to stay in this part of Mauritius as it reflects, in our opinion, the best Mauritius has - a relaxed atmosphere, no big crowds - and to a certain extent one gets some flavour as how Mauritius must have been some time ago.

The La Morne Peninsula and area around is superb. The ever-and-always stunning La Morne Brabant is everywhere, it is close to the Black River Gorges N.P. (hiking and birding), splendid views and the Ocean over the reef and above all: lovely beaches.
Soft sand, trees growing almost on the beach for shade, a more than relaxed atmosphere, a have-to-go for wind- and kitesurfers (or for those, like me, to pick up windsurfing after 20 years) and the perfect vibe.
Just cool - wow!

We - family of four, father, mother, son of 13 and son of 10 - stayed in Beautique Studios.
Two lovely luxury appartments in Coteau Raffin, around the corner of La Morne Peninsula and its gorgeous beaches. Kingsize beds, all kitchen facilities available and a luxury bathroom, including a 'hard' shower (dripping showers are more easily found) and real hot water (which does not stop after 60 seconds).
A musicset and speedy Internetaccess - for those who look for it.
We - as a family - just missed the door in the wall connecting the two appartments.

The absolute bonus was the roofterrace where the four of us could watch each day the sunset over the azure-bleu-green reef and the Indian Ocean, with the stunning La Morne Brabant completing the picture, the four of us lying on the giant sunbed - a glass of wine makes it all perfect.

Not to forget: there are some good quality restaurants in La Gaulette and around - and do not forget to have a lunch or sip a coffee at Chamarel on a bright day to enjoy one of those multimilliondollarviews over the reef, the Ocean, the islands, the western coast of Mauritius and on top of that the La Morne Brabant. Truly magnificent!

On our last day La Morne Brabant presented us with a complete half arch rainbow - whereafter the sun picked up again.

Owner's Response: We are really touched to have such a generous review of Beautique studios. A thousand thank you's. Robbert and his two boys have been the first family to stay with us, we would like to encourage more families .We do reccommend Beautique studios is not toddler or baby practical, but for parents with more mature children, who wish to have a bit of privacy and romance! We are happy to rent both studios at a discount. Regards, Trisha and Ravin

Staying at 'Beautique Studios' - La Gaulette

Staying at 'Beautique Studios' - La Gaulette
  • 4 out of 5
We wanted to get away over the Xmas period. The criteria was to find somewhere tranquil with sun and beach, no hotels or competing tourist crowds, a bit of privacy and access to get around. Well we got our wish and more in La Gaulette and staying at the 'Beautique Studios' played a big part in making our stay one of the most perfect breaks we've ever had.
We had a bit of a problem at the airport because we couldn't provide a full address. Bear this in mind when you go. The Mauritian authorities don't seem to like visitors staying in private apartments. That aside, we were met at the airport and had a comfortable 45 minute drive in a mini-bus to the apt - one of 4 in an easily recognisable bright yellow block on a very small side road in the heart of a local residential area. There was both a great sense of privacy but also a real feeling of safety around. We regularly stayed out very late and we always felt totally safe coming back.
A great space - nothing fussy to make you worry about spilling or breaking anything. A clean, light, minimalist studio with a fairly big en suite bathroom nicely fitted out with all the usual. A very small, modern, clean, functional kitchen which also serves as the entrance to the flat and had all the basics in supplies.
The interior has a polished concrete floor, which keeps the apartment nice and cool and great patio doors that open right out and give a real sense of space -which is nice in an apartment - means you don't feel boxed in without the benefit of a garden - we appreciated that. Needless to say there were plenty of evenings spent just chilling on the balcony which is big enough to take a table and couple of chairs + have a cook-up using the barbeque stand supplied in the corner. There is also access to the roof from which you get a great view of the area, the ocean and the surrounding mountains. You can also ask for a marquee to be set up so you can use it as a another private, chill space. We watched the fireworks from up there on New Year's Eve.
We arranged for car hire through Beautique and our car was ready and waiting at the apartment when we got there. It was hassle free, a nippy little modern car - though check out well before you drive. We only realised we had one completely bald tire after driving on the steep, one vehicle-wide mountain roads!
We had a friendly welcome from out apartment manager Victor, who was also happy to arrange social outings if you're into that. GREAT STAY. .

Owner's Response: We have no involvement at all with car hire, but for your convenience we do our very best to work with the local tour operators who do. We recommend that any car is checked thoroughly by the client and by the tour operator before use......
To our knowledge the authorities have nothing against people staying in self catering, we suggest that the officers working in arrivals take their job as border security seriously. Kind regards Trisha Valaydon

With breathtaking ocean views to Isle aux Benetiers and a 10 minute drive from the nine-mile stretch of white coral sand at World Heritage site Le Morne. At one end of this beach lies a lagoon created by barrier reef, teaming with tropical fish and at the Eastern end the legendary 'one eye' kite and wind surfing spot.

Beautique studios is located in the authentic fishing village of Cotteau Raffin, 1 kilometer from the grocery store and restaurants of La Gaulette, close to some of the best natural highlights Mauritius has to offer, such as, Le Chamarel, Black River Gorges and Rochester Falls. The night life in this area is chilled out.....this location is better suited to those looking for daytime action.

You will be a 2 minute walk from the delightful 'Sugar' which just happens to be the best restaurant in the La Gaulette area, open for lunch and dinner (except Sunday)

Close to many activities such as hiking, game fishing, golf {club and cart rental available} in the unique surroundings of Chateau de Bel Ombre.Snorkelling in warm pristine waters of the lagoon, diving 'La Cathedrale' and swimming with a pod of wild dolphins near Tamarin that visit close by early each morning, this location is perfect for adventurers, beach bums and lovers alike.

This area combines the opportunity to eat at charming inexpensive local restaurants ,some in stunning locations, gourmet venues and table D'hotes . We are also conveniently close to all other amenities.

Celebrating many festivals Mauritius is a melting pot of different races and religions. An abundance of temples and places of interest to see, guests here will never get bored.

With a mixture of aging French,Portugese and British colonial architecture, visiting port Louis is reminiscent of an Indian Ocean Havana, Cuba.....though much older, with fading stone and metal facades flaking paint and cobbled streets, an exciting feast of smells,sights and sounds.

A covered produce market hall close to China town sells every Mauritian fruit, flower and vegetable to traders and tourists . On every corner buy delicious rotis or fresh cut pineapple from a street vendor ,not to be missed !

Possible to get around the entire island in a day guests are never far away from any activity.There is a wealth of sight seeing opportunities, scenic coastal drives, nature trails and shopping.
