Mauritius' latest destination, overlooking the affluent inlet of Grand Baie, breaks the resort mould. Inspired by the shimmering turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, Baystone boasts a fantastical décor designed by New York-based architect Albert Angel. It features furnishings, walls and false ceilings with undulating contours and rippling relief, highlighted by electric jellyfish-like chandeliers. Three Sky Suites, located on the top floor, offer dramatic views over the bay and access to the island's only rooftop swimming pool. Entrepreneur Jean-Pierre Vissuzaine conceived of the place with celebrated local chef Franco Salon. Salon operates the two restaurants, which serve seasonal dishes changed daily to complement the catch of the day. The Sky Spa offers a range of treatments using French cosmetic brand Thal'ion's fresh seaweed and active ingredients.
