There have been some upgrades added to the resort recently. One of which is Marina Blue. It offers a lot of activities for guests who love nautical sports. Another new addition is a private island called Zile Soley. It is linked to the shore by a bridge, and guests can use it for sunbathing and sightseeing.

The Dining Experience
The on-site restaurant offers three locations around the resort for dining. Enjoy your meal while overlooking either The Voumtak, Le Boucanier and the L’Espadon. Aside from the top-notch meals offered throughout the day, try to make it to Sunday brunch, when the maestro is there to play classical and Caribbean tunes.
A stunning touch to the property is the 20 acres of gardens that complement 15 acres of beachfront property. In collaboration with the Ogier-Fombrun Museum, there is a variety of artistically manicured flora including native Caribbean species like coconut, palm, date and an assortment of tropical flowers.
If you want to plan a memorable wedding in a gorgeous setting, then Moulin Sur Mer offers the perfect venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The hotel offers comprehensive wedding services that include private party rooms, rehearsal dinners, music, flowers, and more. Couples often come to Moulin Sur Mer when they want to have a fairytale wedding. Between the classic architecture and the gorgeous blue seas, is there any better setting to have a fairytale wedding?
The private island, Zile Soley, is the ideal area to have your wedding ceremony. It is more secluded as it is away from the hotel building, so it will be less noisy for your wedding. Therefore, you might want to think about using the Zile Soley for your wedding reception and ceremony.
