20 Degrees South is a tastefully appointed, charmingly refined 4-star hotel. It has a fantastic location at the mouth of Grand Baie in the North of Mauritius, looking out over the turquoise lagoon, and nestled in a coconut grove. The coastal town of Grand Baie is a short (complimentary) ride away on the hotel’s shuttle boat, and there are a number of shops and restaurants within a short 15-20 minutes’ walk.

A Boutique Colonial Mansion

20 Degrees South is a delightful small colonial mansion, set in the heart of a coconut grove right at the water’s edge. The boutique hotel décor offers soft, neutral shades of Flamant Home Interiors furniture in its individually designed 36 guest rooms which stand in brilliant contrast to the blue of the sea and green of the coconut palms, instilling deep feelings of peace and seclusion. The hotel is a member of the famous “Relais et Chateaux” . The beach front restaurant serves delicious creole and international dishes. However 20 Degrees South prides itself on its unique treasure of the M/S Lady Lisbeth, the oldest motorboat on the island which, when evening falls, takes a party of guests to dine under the stars on the calm waters of the bay.
Everything will be done to make your stay in Grand Baie particularly pleasant. Considering the cosy size of 20 Degrees South, if you decide on a day of relaxation, there is everything you need – a spa, pool, restaurant and a well-stocked bar serving Mauritian rum.


This boutique hotel inspired by a Mauritian Creole style is decorated entirely by the prestigious Belgian decorator, Flamant.
You can choose from one of the 36 rooms and suites. Unique and personalised by theme, they are distributed in one-storey buildings and face the lagoon. Some of them even have a hot tub or a small relaxation pool for added privacy.

More on accommodation


An experience of discovery and pleasure, worthy of all senses. 20 Degrees South offers three exclusive dining spaces. The kitchen is run by the talented Mauritian chef Sanjeev Purahoo whose cuisine caters to all tastes, moods and occasions.

M/S Lady Lisbeth
We offer an exclusivity in Mauritius: the possibility of boarding the oldest motorboat on the island, the M / S Lady Lisbeth.
This 17m long “vintage” teak boat, built in 1929, has been completely restored by us following vintage photos found at the small marine museum of Taylor Smith shipyard in Port Louis.
Only the hull, in Burma teak, was still in good condition. We rebuilt all the superstructures, had masts identical to the initial ones, and the original fittings were purchased from a ship-wrecking yard near Bombay.
Every evening, it will sail for a dinner cruise on the calm waters of the bay. The embarkation of the 8 privileged is scheduled around 19:30 and return around 23:00. It is also possible to exclusively book it, for a magical evening for two, to organize an intimate wedding or a reception in privacy.
Enjoy your time in Mauritius, stop the time and spend an unforgettable evening under the stars aboard a ship from another era.
L’Explorateur is a real invitation to travel. The crossing begins with the discovery of different atmospheres. On one side, nestled in the heart of the hotel is the stone terrace close to the pool. On the other side of the sea, you will find the bay of Grand Bay and the horizon where getaway dreams are fed.
We are seduced by the singularity of the place, captivated by the menu, the different flavours, the marriage of fine cuisine facing the sea and local products sublimated by the expertise of a passionate and creative chef.
La Voile
It is on the Malartic Point facing the ocean and Coin de Mire that we installed La Voile. This original concept brings together a chef and a bartender who share a counter under a beautiful sail open to the sea.
Everything has been designed so that you can go from the lagoon to the pool, from the deckchair to the canopy bed while enjoying fresh and light preparations in delicacy.
Open in the afternoon until sunset, La Voile is exclusively reserved for our resident clients.
