Situated near the fishermen village of Grand Gaube, in the North of Mauritius, Legends stretches languorously on a beach coiled around various creeks. In the distance, fishing rafts seem still, birds chirp and crabs hide away at the roots of the coconut trees… Welcome to a world of intense serenity…
From the gold sanded creeks, guests can enjoy a panoramic view opening on delightfully named small islands: Coin de mire, Ile Ronde and Ilot Gabriel…
Zen and luxury attitudes. Rediscover wellbeing… the balance within and return to the real life. Legends is a promise of exquisite harmony. To travellers longing for positive energies, Legends offers the riches of the Feng Shui philosophy which imbues the hotel. Legends symbolises the balance of Water, Earth, Wood, Fire and Metal.
The two Chinese ideograms forming the word Feng Shui represent Wind and Water, the first one symbolising universal energy and the second one the receptacle of that energy – a concept aiming at harmonising the influence of these two elements. Legends has been built on this concept.
