Mon Choix

Nested in a preserved part of Mauritius at the foot of the surrounding mountains of Upper Vallée des Prêtres (near the Port Louis Business, shopping and leisure Centre) looking over the rivers and the valley to the sea is MON CHOIX - A private home with comfortable guest suites ready to welcome
* the business person who seeks a home from home relaxed atmosphere,
* the visitor who wishes to enjoy the authentic Mauritius beyond its lovely beaches,
* the celebrity who seeks a very secure hide-away,
* the convalescent who needs a rest and some pampering,
* the adventurer who wishes to discover the heart and soul of the island or
* the artist who needs a quiet yet invigorative environment to create.

Mon Choix is located in a 7& acre Private Park with its own rivers and walkways. A mix of traditional English and modern African decor. A place to get lost, get fit, relax, create and rediscover oneself. An ideal place to watch the giant fruit bats, rainbows and shooting stars. A heaven of tranquility. An idyllic spot which captures the spirit of the island and its natural beauty. One of the very few eco-retreats on the island.
