AKOYA HOTEL & SPA
The pearl of the Indian Ocean
This haven of peace combines contemporary elegance with the charm of its Creole heritage; it owes its name to the Akoya pearl, the famous Asian treasure that was so well known for its purity, its soft nacre colour and its perfect form.
The architectural choices that were made in the establishment of this 5 star hotel express its varied and eclectic influences, immersing its visitors in a world of exotic luxury and serenity.
Natural materials, minimalist spaces, ethereal fabrics, delicate colours, refined furniture and a luxurious setting combine to give it a unique, relaxing and warm atmosphere. Like a further destination within your voyage, the AKOYA Hotel & Spa invites its guests to discover the very essence of the island, all of its natural beauty and cultural diversity, in this sublime setting dedicated to comfort, well-being and relaxation.
NUMEROUS OUTDOOR SPACES
offering a combination of luxury and nature…
The Akoya hotel & Spa nestles at the heart of a tree-lined 3-hectare park overlooking the superb Trou d’Eau protected lagoon.
In order to guarantee our guests privacy, relaxation and visual harmony, the hotel takes very special care over the architecture of its outdoor spaces which are set in an amazing natural environment.
A swimming pool with gentle curves which plunges down towards the ocean, a very friendly designer bar space , a succession of palm trees and exotic flowers, deckchairs and parasols for a nap in the shade, tropical gardens studded with endemic species and ponds… Every space has been designed to offer you a heavenly panorama and maximum comfort whilst at the same time respecting the site’s fantastic environment.
The AKOYA Hotel & Spa:
6 overall themes across 104 rooms & suites
2 restaurants, 1 of them gastronomic, and 1 lounge bar
3 hectares of tree-lined, landscaped grounds
1 420m² swimming pool overhanging the lagoon
1 600m² spa & well-being space
1 Kids’ Club
2 seminar rooms with capacity for 200 people
Inspired by the majestic peak of La Fournaise, its flora, fauna and the whole imaginary world which surrounds this amazing natural site, the decoration of the “FOURNAISE” rooms is based upon restrained lines and colours set off by subtler and more volcanic touches. The vanilla and bronze shades are thus combined with a headboard topped with a wood and leaf bas-relief, when the mirrors reflect the fire from the bed runner and cushions along with plainly ethnic motifs on the bedside tables and curtains.
The Champs de thé
Dedicated to the Eastern culture which is one of the many facets of the Reunion Island identity, the “CHAMPS DE THÉ” rooms are decorated on an elegant, contemporary basis enhanced with allusions to Asia. Thus typical black and white Chinese vases and multicoloured butterflies adorn the curtains which stand out in this ochre-tinted, silky, woody theme. The headboard is plainly decked out with a strip of fabric whereas the lined bed throw and the cushions offer tangier hints of colour.
Price of place here goes to the Indian harmony so dear to Reunion Island, through a plain, elegant decor thrown into relief by the imaginative colours which are typical of the land of the Maharajas. Thus combining modern, ethnic lines, the “NAMASTE” rooms are decked out in a majestic light wood canopy with geometric motifs and large bedside lights with “coral” glints. The white curtains and “sand” shades soothe the souped-up touches of this cameo with hints of saffron which is to be found on the cushions and lined bed throw.
The nature and crafts of Reunion Island are highlighted in the “TROPICAL” rooms through a contemporary decoration scheme which bears the imprint of a whole host of decorative touches paying tribute to the Island’s traditional know-how. With its headboard braided with plant fibres and its light wood columns with sculpted pineapples hanging over them, the bed is the centrepiece of this theme. The bedside lamps with their outlines of popular sculptures, the sand and ochre coloured fabrics, the predominantly green bed throw and the cushions with floral motifs complete this decor which manages to be both elegant and wild..
The Trou d’ëau
Named after the superb lagoon just a few steps from the hotel, the “TROU D’EAU” rooms are a hymn to nature, to sea spray, to white sand and to the beauty of the crystal clear ocean. So there are gentle sandy colours harmonising with the curtains, embroidered with subtle foliage, and a headboard made up of strata with flexible lines conjuring up the depths of the sea. An emerald coloured bed throw, reminiscent of the gentle toing and froing of the waves sparkling beneath the sun, round off this dreamy decor.
The Akoya pearl, a source of inspiration subtly present throughout the hotel, has pride of place in these suites which combine comfort, peace and quiet, refinement and purity. Soft colours, pearly glints and clear wood panelling deck out this natural, contemporary theme set off by cushions with floral prints. The pearl-inlaid headboard of the bed, framed by a chrome-plated canopy, appears to levitate within this sleep, airy setting, whilst chairs with reinvented vintages lines and a green bed throw lined with grey throw this soothing decor into relief.
