Nestling in the heart of breathtaking scenery, we are the ideal base from which to explore the region’s natural and cultural treasures. Here are a few suggestions for making the most of your visit to Entre-Deux from the hotel.

Hiking in the Hauts

L’Entre-Deux is the ideal base from which to explore the upper reaches of Réunion Island. Hiking enthusiasts will be delighted by the many trails winding through the lush green countryside and breathtaking panoramas.

Don’t forget to bring the right equipment and follow the safety instructions to make the most of these escapades.

Discover the Creole heritage

Entre-Deux is also the perfect place to discover Réunion’s rich Creole cultural heritage. Stroll through the picturesque village streets and admire the traditional Creole huts with their colourful facades. Don’t miss a visit to the Maison du Patrimoine, which recounts the history of the commune through exhibitions and personal accounts. Take the opportunity to sample the delights of Creole cuisine in one of the region’s typical restaurants. Our partner Johnny Mignon is offering a VIP tour of the Creole gardens.

Immersion in Nature

Nature lovers will be delighted by the diversity of landscapes on offer in Entre-Deux. Discover the surrounding waterfalls, such as the Cascade du Bras Long or the Cascade Jacqueline, where you can cool off on a sunny day. For an even more authentic experience, opt for a horseback ride through the sugar cane plantations and lush forests.

Relaxation and well-being

After a busy day, there’s nothing like a moment of relaxation to recharge your batteries. At Dimitile Hôtel & Spa you can enjoy relaxing treatments inspired by local traditions, such as massages with essential oils or a spa tour. Indulge in the island’s soothing rhythm and savour the moment.

Cultural events and festivities

If you want to experience Réunionese culture to the full, don’t miss the events and festivities that regularly enliven l’Entre-Deux. Attend a concert of maloya, the island’s traditional music and UNESCO World Heritage Site, or take part in a local festival where you can sample the island’s culinary specialities and dance to the sound of the drums.

Gourmet lunch

For a well-deserved lunch break, head to one of Entre-Deux’s picturesque restaurants to sample the delights of Creole cuisine. Sample local specialities such as chicken carry, rougail saucisse or samoussas, accompanied by a glass of artisanal rum. Take advantage of this opportunity to chat with the locals and discover the secrets of Réunionese gastronomy.

Relaxing by the river

To cool off after your meal, head for the Rivière Langevin, where you can relax by the crystal-clear waters. Take a dip in the natural pools or lounge on the shady banks, admiring the surrounding scenery. It’s the ideal place to recharge your batteries and reconnect with nature.
