Come Alive Collection
Make each day magical
So you’ve found the setting for the holiday of your dreams. Now to fill your trip with memories to make it last a lifetime. At Sunlife we’ve got something for everyone, from thrills to relaxation, culture to nature, gastronomy to golf. Our new "Come Alive Collection" offers a series of experiences to radiate the magic of Mauritius.
Lying, as if run aground, on the silver-white sand of white Flic en Flac beach, curious guests approach an authentic pirogue fishing boat. This retired vessel may have finished its seafaring duties years ago, but it has now been reborn as a three-dimensional canvas. Guests are encouraged to express themselves creatively by painting or decorating the proud pirogue with colourful marks, which over time becomes a symphony of vibrant patterns like a giant jewel by the ocean.
Start the day in good health with a hearty breakfast served in your very own private pirogue. Floating in the turquoise lagoon, you will be treated to delicacies and flavours that are as delicious as they are nutritious. Listen as your server describes the extraordinary variety of native foods and culinary flairs as a soundtrack of waves break gently on the reef.
At La Pirogue, guests are immediately welcomed into the buzz and bustle of local village life as the team creates an arrival experience like no other. Here, there are no boring reception desks or conventional entrance paraphernalia. Instead, your grand entrance moment will come alive to the beat and energy of market stalls manned by local vendors offering glaçon rápé and other edible treats. Craft makers showcase up-cycled jewellery made from shells while artists mix vibrant colours at their easels.
Now meet our charismatic storyteller. In his colourful attire and comical straw hat, can you spot him as he meanders across the resort on his bicycle? He's always ready to share one of many fascinating tales that tell of the history and traditions of the island he calls home. While listening to this local legend regale you with his yarns, try a fresh fruit salad or a 'confit', which is fruit according to a traditional recipe and paired with salt, chilli and tamarind sauce.
Swirl your hips and swing those arms with Sega Zoomba. This is a brand new workout born from an imaginative mash-up of the global Zumba phenomenon and the fiery rhythm and provocative moves of Mauritian Sega. Created exclusively for La Pirogue by renowned instructor Anouchka Zuel, this routine is practiced by day on the beach and poolside. Get your groove on and make some sweaty new friends. Staying fit has never been so much fun.
At La Pirogue, we are serious about looking after our natural environment, which is why we invite our guests to join us in coral farming under the supervision of our Resident Marine Biologist. During the activity, they learn more about this vitally important underwater ecosystem, attach new corals to ropes, and assist with nursery cleaning and seabed maintenance. Guests have now contributed more than 500 coral fragments to the floating nursery, a total that grows daily thanks to our eco-conscious friends.
Sounds Music Recording Studio
La Pirogue boasts a completely unique and original facility in the form of Sounds Music Recording Studio. Located on the 2nd floor of the hotel, with stunning views of the tropical gardens and lagoon beyond, Sounds has been designed to meet the international acoustic norms for an audio facility of this calibre.

Essential to the cycle of life, this very important and friendly yellow friend will guide our youngest guests on a journey of learning that encourages their critical understanding and connection with nature.
