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.

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.

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

We are pleased to offer a list of quality services for our guests such as....

Personal training





Swim with dolphins

A price list can be provided on request, along with all of the most popular excursions and things to do close to this area as recommended by our guests

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in studio 2 for 12 nights and it turned out to be one of the highlights of out trip! There are less tourists in La Gaulette by comparison to the North and the place is located within a suburban area so you actually experience an authentic community and culture. Staying in the top studio helped protect us from the mosquito's, the room was very private, very spacious and clean with breath taking views. Watching the sunset on the rooftop was amazing and relaxing, to be able to chill on the beds and have a few drinks. The location is ideal as long as you have a car; close to the shops, the stunning beach of Le Morne, a short drive to Big Willys sports bar and lots of activities around Chamarel. The owners, Trish and Rav are such lovely people as well, they helped us out a lot and it was good that they were around here and there as we always had questions that needed answers. You couldn't ask for better hosts honestly! When we come back to Mauritius we will definitely be contacting these guys to stay here again :)

Perfect spot for an intimate & relaxed getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The spot was simple and lovely... perfect for a couple wanting to have amenities of home but a more romantic environment. Beautiful balconies, nice design, a great kitchen, comfortable bed... everything was great. We felt completely taken care of the entire time by Victor and others, but had complete privacy. Great location nearby Le Morne for kiteboarding and beautiful beaches. Can walk into La Gaulette, but recommend for sure hiring a car while you're there as you'll want to explore the rest of the island. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone.

A fantastic restful break.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay two week stay in Studio 2, which contained all that we needed and was as advertised, with the added bonus of a daily cleaner (except on Sundays). We highly recommend the studios for their location, amenities and tranquil setting - a car is a necessity. We went for lovely drives to out of the way beaches, to cafes, restaurants and of couse supermarkets. Victor the caretaker collected us from the Airport and took us back again on our departure day when he came for us at 4.00 a.m. - what a treasure. The only downside was the mosquitos in an otherwise fantastic two week stay. Don't forget to star gaze on the roof - apply mosquito protection before going up there !

"Welcome to Paradise.."

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and well-maintained apartment (love the views, golden flowers, rooftop daybeds) with a great crew of people. Special thanks to manager Victor, housecleaner Amla and tourguide Ken for being the warm welcome and my guides. A car is a must on the island. It’s an easy way to get around and see the island/beauty it has to offer. Mauritians drive on the left and it takes a few moments to get used to their driving style (overtake and honk a lot and you’re fine:). The car gave me the chance to go see places as:

- Le Morne: just around the corner, with world famous kite surfing and diving spots, and luscious white sandy beaches and blue ocean (spot is world heritage listed) perfect for snorkelling, sunbathing and water sports;

- Chamarel, Black River Gorges Natural Park, Grand Bassin, waterfalls: visit Chamarel rum distillery for a tour/rum tastings, visit Grand Bassin to learn about (Hindu) religions/Gods, climb the stairs to the Monkey God (‘Hanuman’, God for strength/courage) for spectacular views;

- Grand Gaube: stay at resort ‘Veranda Paul et Virginie’ for a few days to experience the romantic resort lifestyle and for scuba diving go visit (next doors) resort La Marina and its diving centre ‘Emperator’ (ask for owner Ludovic!) which will take you to the best spots in the North. You can book these dives at the front desk of Paul et Virginie or by going to La Marina where you find the Emperator diving centre at the water front;

- Grand Baie: touristy area of the North, good for shopping, with many restaurants and bars;

- Flic en Flac/Tamarin: great for scuba diving, the ‘Cathedrale’ is an absolute must for Advanced divers, so is ‘Passe Jean Jacques’ in Le Morne, and ‘Coin de Mire’ (wreck dive) in Grand Gaube;

- Port Louis: busy capital, go visit the markets;

- The South: take the coastal road from La Gaulette to Mahebourg. You will find yourself driving around in Paradise..

Being a female traveller/diver by myself, I absolutely loved Mauritius, the people, the culture, the beaches, ocean and diving, the food, the rum!, and will definitely come back to the island and stay at this apartment again! Due to a great hosts, owner (friendly, easy and quick to communicate with), apartment and the amazing crew of people. Dare speak a few words of French and the rest in English and it's even easier to get around. A big thanks to all of you, tu es magnifique Ile Maurice!

Warm regards,

Jacqueline Bom

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.
