With views of the glittering ocean and expansive swimming pool, MIXE dishes up a tempting all-day menu of island specialities, from a fresh sprawling breakfast buffet to round-the-world gastronomic delights.
It’s a spectacular spot: there’s a Josper-style grill, live cooking stations, Asian and Spicy Curry corners, glass tandoor, and saj oven for oriental bread-making. Sweet things also get a starring role, including a dedicated chocolate room where guests can watch and participate in live cooking sessions, a glass oven for viennoiseries and a lavish display of pastries and desserts.
Occupying a prime spot right on the sands and with spectacular views across the Indian Ocean, Beach Rouge is open for lunch and dinner. There’s a hint of French Riviera in the airy white-and-red decor. In the lounge area, cocktails and tapas make for lazy days and cool evenings by the Indian Ocean: flop down on cushions on the beach to the upbeat sound of top DJs. Local, fresh-from-the-sea produce shines in the kitchen, where chefs whip up tantalising feasts of the island’s best seasonal fare.
