One&Only Le Saint Géran has unveiled a preview of some of the resort’s new interiors, including new two- and three-bedroom suites and multiple interconnecting rooms when it welcomes guests back at the end of the year following a multi-million dollar investment.
“Our comprehensive redesign will build on what our guests already treasure such as the unrivalled welcome and care of our loyal staff, our extraordinary location and services, but we are also adding even more,” said general manager Charles de Foucault. “Following guest feedback we decided to add more suites, all with private butler service, and more interconnecting rooms, all beautifully-designed to ensure that both new and loyal guests will find the resort to be a true luxury tropical oasis."
The new guest rooms will feature a private balcony or terrace, marble-lined bathrooms with rain showers, and a separate bath opening up to an adjacent dressing space. More than 50 rooms across the resort will be available as an interconnecting option. One-bedroom suites with views over the Indian Ocean, the beach or the lagoon will range in size from 110 to 150 square metres each with a master bedroom, lounge and dining room. Suites located on the ground floor will extend to a private wooden deck with a sofa, daybed, terrace, chairs and table. All suites will feature personal butler service.
The introduction of one, two and three-bedroom suites is a response to the requests by One&Only's loyal guests, especially those who travel with large families. The 190 square metre two-bedroom ocean and beach-front suites will include two bedrooms, three marble-lined bathrooms and two private terraces. The resort will also have four three-bedroom suites, sprawling over 250 square metres, each with a master bedroom, a living room and a location leading directly onto the beach.
