Le Cardinal Exclusive Resort
is located on the island of Mauritius
Mauritius is a substantial tropical island set in a very remote part of the Indian Ocean to the east of Madagascar, very far removed from the safari areas of Africa, but sometimes visited in combination by people in search of large resorts with lots of facilities, notably including some major golf courses.
Set in the Trou aux Biches area to the northwest of the island, Le Cardinal Exclusive Resort is modest medium sized hotel.
The hotel is centred on a main building with lounge and dining areas on the ground floor, leading out to a swimming pool. Guests can use the gym, tennis and spa at the nearby Casuarina Hotel.
Activities include tennis, diving, snorkelling, kayaking, sailing and golf.
Guest accommodation is in just 13 suites on the three floors above, two of which are penthouses, one with a private pool.
The main potential downsides at Le Cardinal Resort are the slightly busy location, the rather modest beaches, the limited range of facilities and the potential for adverse weather Jan/Mar.
