Newly launched hotel brand, SALT, has just opened the doors to its very first resort, the vibrant SALT of Palmar on the east coast of Mauritius.

The 59 suite resort has a sustainable restaurant, lap pool overlooking the ocean, beach bar, roof-top bar and a day spa.

It has a bold look, born out of a collaboration between local Mauritian architect Jean-François Adam of JFA Architects and French artist, Camille Walala.

Jean-François’ design aims to bring the natural environment and local Mauritian way of life to the forefront.

“Everything about the hotel is designed to bring people together. From the communal tables in the bakery, restaurant and beach bar, to Mauritius’ first roof-top bar and the inviting spaces in the SALT equilibrium spa, it is all about gathering and sharing stories of travels and enjoyment of this incredible location.”

French artist, Camille Walala, on the other hand, has used bright blues, yellows and bold monochromatic stripes throughout the hotel.

SALT guests will have the opportunity to bond with locals via the Skill Swap program, exchanging their own time with local producers, designers and artisans such as fisherman, potters, basket weavers and more.

The food philosophy at the restaurant is fresh, local, homemade, home-grown, seasonal and zero-waste, with the majority of the produce coming from the SALT Farm that cultivates hydroponic fruit and vegetables (opening end of first quarter 2019) and local bio-farms.
