Canonnier Golf Resort & Spa

About Canonnier Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa

Elegant authenticity in ancient history…

The refurb of this popular beach resort has certainly made Canonnier a firm favourite for repeat Beachcomber guests!  I am in awe of the spa built in the branches of the banyan tree where you will experience total relaxation and the views from the Navigator bar never cease to amaze me!

Furnished with warm tones, wood hues the colour of sunset, rustic thatch roofs and lush vegetation surrounding you wherever you are on the gorgeous grounds of this spectacular resort, Canonnier is its own category of paradise.

This resort is on a prime Grand Bay property, perched on a peninsula with two beaches, each offering a different view. Woven into the legacy of the resort is a little piece of Mauritius’ rich cultural history, blending old and new in innovative, creative ways: A new and unique safari-inspired kids club offers youngsters aged 3 – 11 years a world of fun and entertainment. Kids can broaden their horizons with activities in a generous playground and in a tented village. The old lighthouse now serves as a venue for the Teens Club and the spa has been built in the branches of an ancient banyan tree.

Canonnier has always remained a favoured family hotel, with endless entertainment for adults and children alike. Its close proximity to Grand Bay gives you the option of retail therapy, while the hotel’s tree-top wellness centre, built in the branches of a centuries-old Banyan tree, has other therapies on offer to ease weary minds and bodies. Canonnier is a vibrant hotel. While it’s the resort of choice for the fun-loving fraternity, it’s been built with sheer relaxation in mind – the perfect balance for the ideal vacation and a perfect choice for weddings and honeymooners as well

  • A brand new look with recently refurbished rooms, restaurants and public areas
  • Ocean-front location with two separate beaches, each with a different atmosphere – the view from Navigator is stunning
  • Two-bedroom garden-facing apartments are ideal for families
  • A choice of three restaurants each with its own unique atmosphere and style of cuisine
  • Optional Beachcomber All-Inclusive package covering most meals and drinks interchangeable with Mauricia close by as well as Victoria and Shandrani resorts
  • Five kilometres or 10 minutes from Grand Bay with its lively restaurants, markets and shopping
  • Tropical gardens with large swimming pool and a smaller one for kids
  • Unique in Mauritius, the Wellness Centre is built into the branches of a banyan tree – food for the soul
  • A new and unique safari-inspired kids club, housed in a tented village
  • One of my favourite choices for a beautiful setting for weddings and honeymoons 

Kids Club at Canonnier Resort & Spa

Magical would accurately describe Cannonier’s kid’s club, which is possibly the most appealing in Mauritius. As a popular family resort in Mauritius, Canonnier Beachcomber has spared no effort to make sure kids have the time of their lives at the kids club.

In keeping with its approach towards sustainable development, the resort has chosen to use the relic of an eighteenth-century lighthouse and turn it into a venue reserved for children aged 3 to 12.  A few steps away is an ancient thatch-roofed powder magazine that children also put to good use when they play hide-and-seek.

The kids club cosy interior consists of two spacious rooms with parquet flooring and furnished to suit two different age groups. Storm lights and an ancient wooden trunk help infuse the venue with an aura of adventure and secrecy.

The kids club also opens onto a small garden equipped with swings and a wooden climbing frame. The supervised program includes many indoor and outdoor activities, complemented by a range of toys and games available within the facility.
