SALT of Palmar being transformed for November opening
The SALT of Palmar building, originally designed in 2005 by Mauritian architect Maurice Giraud house, is being transformed by Mauritian architect Jean Francois Adam in collaboration with French designer Camille Walala, with all 59 rooms all overlooking sea, garden or the 25-metre lap pool.
“When deciding on the location for our very first SALT hotel it had to be Mauritius,” said SALT’s creator and CEO of The Lux Collective, Paul Jones.
“An exotic, volcanic beauty drenched in history and modern culture, Mauritius has much to offer beyond its picture-perfect beaches, and its people are some of the most welcoming and passionate I have ever met. It’s a destination ripe for exploration too often overlooked by those who think it’s just for lazing on a beach. SALT of Palmar will be a gateway for discovering the real Mauritius, designed to disrupt those preconceived notions and attract a different type of traveller to the island.”
Mauritian general manager Raj Reedoy said the opening of SALT of Palmar was an exciting project for guests and locals alike.
“Stripping out the formalities between guests and team members, the hotel has already brought together a diverse community of local people who feel so proud to be part of a Mauritian-run hotel that will truly champion the culture and heritage of their country,” he said. “We are looking forward to opening the doors to the very best of Mauritius for our guests.”
