An idyllic getaway in the Indian Ocean

With a beautiful adults-only Infinity Pool, sunbeds on unspoilt shores, and endless activities that introduce kids to local culture and nature, Club Med La Plantation d'Albion is an idyllic getaway in the Indian Ocean.

The perfect Mauritius resort for an extended family getaway or a romantic escape, you'll enjoy the warmth of the local culture and the beauty of this treasured island. Wakeboard or waterski on perfectly flat oceans, then enjoy fresh seafood at the award-winning Le Phare restaurant. Every day is heavenly in Albion!

Relax in a universe of incomparable elegance or spend your days discovering the exuberance of tamarinds, cacti, and banyans in the rich fauna that this area prides itself on. The 65,000 square meters of gardens at this resort play home to several species of plants, some of which are native to the island.

The resort is also famed for its sporting facilities and during your stay you will be able to try your hand at a whole host of activities from the flying trapeze and tennis to golf and sailing. Beginners and experienced players can all enjoy what the resort has to offer and the best thing is, some of the activities are included in the price! The snorkelling here is also a must-do as the resort is built on one of the last remote coves and, combined with the coral reef, offers perfect conditions for various beach activities.

On the island of Mauritius itself there are countless activities you can partake in from ziplining through the tree tops like a bird of paradise to meandering through the famous Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens. Here you can view more than 650 varieties of plants and even 85 different varieties of palm trees, that are exhibited here, from across the world.

Whether you are floating in the sea, an endless expanse of turquoise or admiring one of the countless tropical gardens on the island, you can guarantee that you will always be surrounded by an abundance of vivid colours. The accommodation at La Plantation d'Albion draws on this spectrum of colours, with the rooms traditionally decorated in true Mauritian style with shades of pink, orange or brown, which all combine in an elegance synonymous with the resort.

There are three bars and two restaurants located in the resort so you will always have a choice of what to eat and drink. Lounge on plush furniture at The Alouda, this terrace bar has unbeatable views of the romantic lagoon. The perfect setting for lunch or dinner is at the Distillerie. Choose between the two terraces, open air or covered, and two upstairs dining areas with a magnificent view over the sea or lagoon.

During the day you will be able to visit the spa undisturbed while your children have fun at dedicated areas specifically designed for their needs, and equipment designed with a view to comfort and safety. The kids clubs are inspired by the local environment and with its flora and fauna: the Mini Club Med® at la Plantation d'Albion introduces children to the pleasures of living in harmony with nature, and satisfies their curiosity.

Choose between relaxing in the incredible infinity pool that overlooks the white sands of the coral bay, learning how to perfect your backhand during a game of tennis or exploring the lush, tropical gardens found in the resort. No matter which you choose, choose La Plantation d'Albion for your next holiday and enter a world of vibrant colours and dive in to a melting pot of cultures and cuisine.
