Christmas in Grand Baie

On Christmas Eve, guests will be invited to sit back and have a drink under the stars, in front of the splendid bay view, while enjoying living Nativity scenes and Christmas Carols, before they head to Mon Plaisir Restaurant for a generous Christmas buffet. On the 25th, a brunch will be served alongside Christmas presents distribution and a special prize draw.

Finally, those who wish to celebrate the New Year till the break of dawn will be pleased: on the 31st, there will be a beach cocktail with background music from a jazz band and an exceptional buffet at Mon Plaisir Restaurant, followed by a multicultural show, fireworks and dancing.

To add up to the season’s tropical feel, local fruity cocktails will be served everyday at Veranda Grand Baie, allowing guests to discover the great variety of exotic flavours available on our island!
