The Mourouk Ebony Hotel, situated in a coastal village in the southeastern part of the island, is home to a Creole-style hotel complex that comes straight out of a picture postcard. Flanked by deserted sandy beaches, the hotel sits against a hilly landscape. It overlooks a huge turquoise lagoon, which sharply contrasts the deeper blue winding channel that shelters a multitude of uninhabited islands.
When your journey to Rodrigues takes you to the Mourouk Ebony Hotel, do not expect to find the cool glamour or luxuries of a 5 star establishment. Rather count on priceless, genuine warm-hearted Rodriguan hospitality.
Built on a hill, the hotel faces a vast lagoon with various shades of blue and turquoise contrasting the pale yellow of the sandy beaches, which remind one of African Savannahs.
The 30 rooms are divided into 10 units of which 20 are communicating, each in unique Creole style, with a red roof, a very own veranda and a small garden - thus adding to the original atmosphere. New at the Mourouk are the so-called "Océane" suites, which provide an even closer approach to the real Rodriguan lifestyle. Built in an exclusive and secluded setting, they overlook the beach and guarantee a tranquil environment.
All rooms are set up facing the lagoon and are air conditioned and equipped with private bathroom (shower) with kit, minibar, tea and coffee, tropical ceiling fan and terrace. It is also possible to include an extra bed or cot upon request.
Their interior focuses on simplicity, providing the perfect basis for relaxation, undisturbed intimacy and closeness to Mother Nature. Perfecting this image is the very caring staff, an enjoyment in itself and well worth mentioning.
At the foot of the hill on the beautifully vast beach, the Mourouk Ebony hotel provides a full range of water and land sports as well as a dive centre. The dive centre and lie at one end of the beach, while on the other end, the beach restaurant can be found.
In the evenings, Sega and other dance shows contribute to the guests' entertainment.
The gastronomic experience finally is a love story between organic vegetables grown on the premises and seafood freshly caught in the lagoon, served either on a terrace with a view or directly at the beach. This fine cuisine of carefully prepared island dishes ensures wonderful memories of an extraordinarily delightful island vacation. To ensure even longer lasting island impressions, the cook will be happy to share his recipes with you.
