All rooms are facing the garden, a highlight of the hotel, which includes among a wide variety of tropical trees, plants and fragrant flowers: A large breadfruit tree, evergreen all-year-round blooming Allamanda bushes, ginger lily (fleure de Longoza), coco and multiple other palms, Filao and Bonnet carré trees, also known as Bonnet d'évêque due to its fruit's resemblance to a bishop's hat.

Another highlight is the beach, located a few steps away from the rooms, which is good for swimming both during low and high tide. The Filao and Bonnet Carré trees at the beachfront provide necessary shade throughout the day.

Carrefour is a regular meeting place among vanilla traders since the location offers spacious meeting areas either in the restaurant or in the Badamier pavilion. Le Alamanda bar in front of the reception serves drinks throughout the day and evening. Additionally, the foyer has an area with a TV for watching the news, sports events etc. Importantly, the WiFi works well across the entire property even during the town's regular electricity cuts, as a generator (which cannot be heard since it's behind the property) kicks in within three seconds of a power cut.

There are plenty of parking spaces in front of the property. The hotel is neither formal nor informal, making it perfectly Ok to stroll around in flip-flops or even barefoot. Bills can be paid in cash or by VISA.
