Pool & BarMany returning guests head directly to the pool after checking in. The pool area is an oasis of palms, but the star attraction is Alain at the poolside bar. A few minutes chatting with Alain—plus one of his signature cocktails—and you will forget there is a world beyond L'Esplanade.
Alain can be found at the pool bar from late morning until evening preparing exotic cocktails of his own invention, like the Rendezvous, as well as lunch and snacks.
The pool and poolside lounges are available to guests at any time. Guests of L'Esplanade are also invited to use beach chairs, parasols, snorkel gear, kayaks and paddle boards at our sister hotel, Le Petit Hotel, at the other end of Grand Case.
We especially liked the pool area…nicely landscaped with various palm trees…soft grass peppered with unique tiles. I felt like Keith Richards or some Rock Star hanging by my private pool.
Alain ... is a true artist when it comes to mixing drinks ... Most of his drinks are of his own design and of the several that we sampled, every one of them was good.
... have a romantic poolside dinner cooked and served by Alain, who is an excellent creole chef as well as a great bartender. His drinks pack pure dynamite and he relishes in seeing the happy faces of guests ...
