The iconic and authentic beachside resort of La Pirogue is a holiday favourite in Mauritius and has been for years. Gorgeous, standalone villas, stylishly designed with a tropical flair, fuse with lush coconut grove gardens, authentic Mauritian restaurants unfurl onto powder-white sands and the azure lagoon sparkles in the sunshine. Whether you are going on a family holiday, looking to get away as a couple or simply want the perfect place to relax for a few days, this four-star hotel has everything you could possibly want and need for a dream holiday in paradise
But, more than beautiful grounds, stunning rooms and amazing restaurants, this hotel has had its fair share of acclaim and boasts a host of awards that highlight them as being in a class of their own.
Here are all of the awards received by the hotel:
Silver Accreditation - EarthCheck Certification
For those who don’t know, La Pirogue is one of five resorts under the Sun Resorts brand. Apart from stunning luxury hotels and providing unforgettable guest experiences, Sun Resorts is passionate about sustainability and eco-friendly practices. Each of the resorts in their portfolio passionately work towards their collective sustainability goals, and in La Pirogue’s case, led them to be awarded the EarchCheck Silver Accreditation both in 2017 and 2018.
According to the site, “EarthCheck Certified provides a framework within which organisations can achieve the desired outcomes for sustainable tourism”. EarthCheck’s CEO and founder has elaborated by saying “EarthCheck Certified is by far the tourism industry’s most scientifically rigorous benchmarking program, backed up by independent audits of operational performance, and our members cannot achieve Certification without doing the hard yards.”
The Silver certification is the second level of EarthCheck compliance—there are technically four levels Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum (the latter you can only achieve when you have had gold for 5 years in a row), and a huge achievement—there’s no doubt that La Pirogue is committed to sustainability.
Guest Review Award - Booking.com
Another esteemed reward, based purely on the reviews of travellers, is Booking.com’s Guest Review Award, which La Pirogue received in 2017. These awards are given annually and recognise establishments for their incredible levels of hospitality, based on the opinions of guests and the review scores given after a stay.
TUI Awards - TUI Quality Support
Recognised for the resort’s excellence, the TUI Top Quality Award was given by the esteemed German tour operator TUI to La Pirogue for the first time in 2017, after having been awarded the TUI Holly awarded for a number of years. This award highlights La Pirogue as a quality choice for guests and travel agents alike. They were also awarded the TUI Environmental Champion Award in 2017, the only resort in Mauritius to hold this honour. This award was given for their incredible efforts towards sustainable practices and the lengths they go to protect the environment.
In 2018, they were awarded the TUI Holly once more (making it their tenth TUI Holly win since 2006) and another TUI Top Quality Award as well as the TUI Umwelt 2018 which recognises once more their efforts when it comes to the environment and eco-friendly practices. In 2019, they were also once again awarded the TUI Environmental Champion Award. These extraordinary awards set La Pirogue up as a top hotel on all levels and mark it as the ideal hotel for a memorable, and sustainable, holiday in paradise.
Customer Excellence Award - British Airways Holidays
Another peer-influenced award, the British Airways Holidays Customer Excellence Award based on consistently outstanding comments given by guests and collected by British Airways and Reevoo was given to La Pirogue in 2017. Guests rated La Pirogue on the quality of sleep, the cleanliness of the rooms and resort, the service and location, and it received an incredible 9/10 score, highlighting as one of the top hotels of the 12 000 hotels across the globe reviewed.
HolidayCheck Award 2018
The German travel platform HolidayCheck awarded La Pirogue a HolidayCheck Award in 2018, based on outstanding feedback from their guests. Scoring a whopping 5.5 out of 6 despite being in the process of renovations, La Pirogue was praised for the high standards of hospitality and the gorgeous stretch of beach. This platform is one of the most popular travel sites in Germany, with approximately seven million visitors a week, making this award a great honour.
Certificate of Excellence - TripAdvisor
TripAdvisor’s highly coveted Certificate of Excellence is awarded to hospitality establishments that constantly go above and beyond to ensure guests have a phenomenal experience. It’s an award that is earned over time and is based on consistently positive guest feedback, which makes it truly incredible that La Pirogue has been awarded this certificate a number of times, namely in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 which secured a place for La Pirogue in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame.
