Plantation D'Albion, on the island's western coast about 10 km (6 miles) south of Port Louis, is a stylish departure from the previous Club Med property on the island. Low-set and blending in with the lush tropical surroundings and adjoining sugarcane fields, the main resort is contained in two-story buildings in the garden or on the beachfront. Rooms closest to the ocean have outdoor showers, huge square bathtubs, and king-sized bedrooms that open out onto a balcony or terrace. The adults-only "Zen" pool is cantilevered over boulders by the sea, and a restaurant serves three meals daily. While the club's free activities are a hit with families (there are three kids clubs for different ages, plus a nursery for babies), the resort has private villas (complete with butler service) that feel a world away from family action.
