SALT of Palmar Mauritius Homegrown and heart-warming

The Resort

Located on the west side of Mauritius the brand new SALT of Palmar invites you to an experience that you will remember for a long time. 

SALT is a new, advanced hotel concept that connects the modern traveller with meaningful travel experiences. It aims at especially culturally curious guests who attach great importance to local and sustainable hotel experiences.

The SALT of Palmar building is an iconic edifice that leads straight onto Palmar beach. 

Local will be found in every nook and cranny – from the homespun ceramics in the restaurant to the handwoven beach bags and all-natural toiletries in every room.

Guests can be confident that sustainability and environmental consciousness is at the core of the hotel. Simply by staying, they contribute to protecting and empowering local communities, creating opportunity and employment, and preserving the environment via the single-use plastic, bio-farming and zero-waste policy.

Rooms

The 59 rooms overlook either the sea, the garden or the 25-metre pool. Each room has been carefully equipped: A handmade Carpe Diem bed, 100% organic cotton bed linen. A rain shower. A yoga mat and block. A digital Roberts Radio.

Food & Beverages

The food philosophy is fresh, local, homemade, seasonal and zero waste - simplicity is the key ingredient. With not a buffet in sight, the team of all-Mauritian chefs will design the daily-changing menus around whatever the farmers, fishermen and growers bring in that day with a focus on many vegan dishes.

The on-site bakery will produce tempting bread, pastries, home-roasted African coffee, local teas and tropical juices. Artisan pickled vegetables and preserved fruits are sourced exclusively from local, organic farms; all made in small batches using only seasonal fruits and vegetables. 

In the kitchen, ancient cooking methods with a wok, the tandoor oven and the charcoal grill are the trinity, whilst smoking anything and everything to release and enhance flavours. Fresh fish reach the kitchen every morning within hours of being caught. 

 

The Restaurant: Dishes with ingredients from local cultivation. Six types of cooking are offered: Wok, Tandoor, Grill, Smoke and Baked & Slow cooked. Á la carte with changing seasonal menus 

SALT Bakery: Freshly baked bread and freshly brewed coffee 

The Roof Top Bar: The rooftop bar overlooks the Indian Ocean and serves drinks. Afternoon tea and cake.

The Beach Bar: Beach bar with cocktails mixed with fresh fruits and home-grown herbs 

The Pool Bar: a local beer freshly tapped awaits you.

In the restaurants, no swimwear is allowed during the day. Dress code in the evening: smart casual.

Activities

The SALT EQUILIBRIUM will come complete with a salt room, five treatment rooms and a team of local therapists offering a pick and mix of salt-based treatments to energise, relax, detoxify and rejuvenate. And a community of shared interests is just waiting to be created as guests come together for The Sunrise Run Club, sunrise salutations on the beach, meditation at Brahmakumari, dawn photography tour, hike & bike, yoga at the SALT Farm Shala and many more.

SALT of Palmar will pulse to the rhythm of sega music, with up and coming local artists performing at the resort. Giving Mauritian artists a platform to reach an international audience. The hotel library will be the place to relax and explore, curated by a team of local authors who handpick the very best Mauritius-related literature, from fact to fiction, fantasy to folklore.

SALT of Palmar wants the guests to "get connected" – and for once it is not about social media, but about new experiences and the exchange of cultures and skills, in which the hotel brings its guests to the people of the island every day. 

For example, they can look over the shoulders of local producers at work, help them in a pottery or basketry shop in Pamplemousse, cook traditional curry in a typical Mauritian cuisine, accompany a fisherman at the first catch early in the morning or be part of the training of the local football team. 

The hotel also wants to create a sense of community between the guests – with running clubs, joint meditations on the beach, morning photo tours, yoga at SALT Farm or on cycling and hiking excursions. 

To discover the island, each guest will receive a copy of "This is Mauritius" – a guidebook created by l locals. Complemented by road maps, SIM maps, private recommendations and personal contacts, guests can discover the island far from well-trodden tourist trails and also use the hotel's fleet with cool convertibles and bicycles.

Schon bei der Ankunft wird klar, hier wird auf Nachhaltigkeit gesetzt: Kein Plastik! Also APP für den Zimmerzugang, was auch sehr gut und angenehm erklärt wird. Für Personen, die mit dem Handy nicht geübt sind oder einen handy-freien-Urlaub verbringen wollen, gibt es natürlich Karten (keine Sorge).
Zimmer sehr sauber und mit viel Zubehör: Salzpeeling in der Dusche, Öko-Flip-Flops zum Mitnehmen, täglich Wasser und Alu-Trinkflaschen zum Mitnehmen (auch sehr gut zu hause verwendbar). Generell in der ganzen Anlage sauber, Wasser mit und ohne Gas den ganzen Tag frei zum selber auffüllen. Strand sehr ruhig und sauber, da er wirklich täglich gepflegt wird. Bäckerei: TOP!, Restaurant 1A. Kein Buffet. Speisekarte aber erste Sahne, mit Sicherheit etwas vom Besten der Insel! Küchenchef Bhaugeerutty Vikram ist international bekannt und nimmt sich auch Zeit für kurze Kochworkshops (zb Masala selber machen).

Generell: Anlage klein, übersichtlich, schöner Strand, vorgelagertes Riff. Wassersportangebot im Hotel sehr gut, Personal extrem zuvorkommend.
