Bubble Lodge Hôtel – Île aux Cerfs – Mauritius
The Bubble Lodge hotel on Ile aux Cerfs is remarkable in many ways. Obviously, these rooms made of transparent plastic bubbles already present to themselves an originality that is not to be missed.
Of the three bubbles present at Ile aux Cerfs, I could test the most isolated, located in a grove of banyans. You are greeted by a natural arch of wood, the banyan having, by these hazards that nature reserves us, to make a bow of circle on a human scale.
You live in three contiguous spaces under pressure (low so no physical gene) including an entrance, the master bedroom and the bathroom. Apart from this (for understandable reasons of privacy!), the others are largely transparent and allow you to admire nature under the bubble. It may sound weird in daylight, but at night it’s still more convenient!
It must be recognized that with the few lights that illuminate the space at night, the show is wonderful. You sleep among the trees, like in a cocoon.
But the pleasure does not stop there. Indeed, you are located close to a superb golf course. So you have an astonishing contrast between two natures, one wild and the other domesticated, and which blend together harmoniously.
Finally, at the end of the day, except a few security guards, everybody leave the island. And you are alone in the world. The island belongs to you. And for a misanthrope like me, it’s Nirvana!
And to perfect the experience, you have a buttler at your disposal. Always joignable phone, he will make you discover the secret corners of the island, transfer you by electric car according to your will on the private beaches, the golf course or the restaurant. There are two beaches, that of the buccaneers, to share with the guests of the Anahita Resort and another smaller one on which you will very often be completely alone!
You have understood that, from the welcome by private boat, the reception on a dedicated pontoon, through the personalized service, it is not only an impression of being unique in this habitat, it is almost a physical reality (except security personnel, but that you understand it).
The breakfast is simple but of quality. This is a direct service at table because a self service buffet would be unmanageable for so few customers.
Bill of 380 euros for one night for two.
