Beachcomber unveils new spa

Beachcomber Hotels has opened five spa treatment rooms at its Le Canonnier hotel in Mauritius, built around an ancient Banyan tree.
The 9sq m (96sq ft) rooms - four singles and one double - were created at a cost of 7m Mauritian Rupees (£113,000, US$215,000, 168,000 euro) by local architect Maurice Giraud who has worked with Beachcomber on a number of previous projects.

The Wellness and massage centre integrates a bicentennial banyan tree and 5 massage rooms (including one double cabin) with exterior showers. Combining thatch, ravenala and wooden floors, these authentic cabins overlook the fortifications and the 18th century sea-facing canons. A unique and magic escape.

Treatments on offer at Le Canonnier Wellness Centre include Shiatsu massage, hot stone therapy and aromatherapy, as well as an aromatic massage for children. Products are supplied by Thalgo.
