We spent the day at the Crown Lodge on the last day of our honeymoon. What fun! Excellent views of the races, brilliant atmosphere, access to the paddocks, yummy food and drinks on tap. Everyone was so friendly. We had a great day out.

We were collected from our hotel at 10.30am and taken off to Port Louis, which was about an hour away. We were greeted upon arrival by Jacques, who wasted no time in making sure we were in the private box, with a drink ! I think there were 22 guests in the box, which is in a great position overlooking... More

I visited the Crown Lodge with my wife on 17/5/14 and had a great days entertainment. We were greeted from our transport by Jacques and then looked after with snacks and drinks. There were 9 races on the day and you don't have to spend a lot of money. I was betting around £4 a race between myself and my... More

We arrived Saturday morning and by 12.30 we had a gin and tonic in hand and had flung ourselves into the spirit of cheering our ill chosen nag (the horses are not going to win many awards!) while sharing stories and good times with the fellow guests of Jacques, your ebullient host. This was a pure slice of Alan Whicker... More

My wife and myself visited the crown lodge on the 12/4/14. What a fantastic experience. Jacque was the best host you could wish for. If you visit Mauritius, the crown lodge is a box you must tick! Hope to return next year.

Wow, what a day to experience. Jacques is a phenomenal host, the drinks flow, the welcome outstanding and the food divine. As a veggie, Jacques went out of his way to make me feel welcome and specially catered for. The atmosphere is electric and watching Mauritians simply go wild for the races is something to experience for sure for any... More

What a fantastic day we had at the races with Crown Lodge! This is an amazing day out and very much recommended. We were looked after from the moment we were picked up from the hotel to the moment we were dropped back. We even had 4 winners (or the female half did, the male half lost all his money!)... More

There are plenty of day trips available to sights in Mauritius, but for all of their natural beauty, none of the come close to a day at the Crown Lodge! While it probably helps if you enjoy horseracing, it's by no means essential! This is a full-on day, which starts with your private transfer from your hotel and a chance... More
