Coco de Mar & Black Parrot Suites are flanked by several small, private beaches forming part of the large bay at Anse Bois de Rose.
Prevailing winds and tides can cause a buildup of seaweed during certain times of the year (typically, from time to time during the May to October period), however, guests always have access to ample sun-bathing areas; large sand-terraces; palm tree strung hammocks, and sun loungers.
The complex has two magnificent pools one in the unique shape of a Coco de Mer, overlook the Indian Ocean and the other – perched on a granite outcrop with a 270 degree view of the ocean – at the Black Parrot Junior Suites.
