If you are in Mauritius over a weekend you MUST go to the races and use the Crown Lodge! Jacques (the host) was fantastic, unlimited drink and very tasty snacks throughout the day. We met some lovely people who were in the Crown Lodge with us and even won some money! Highly recommended.

Spent a wonderful Saturday with Jaques in the Crown Lodge. The perfect host offered copious amounts of food and drink throughout the day, whilst we were almost in touching distance of the winning line, the winners enclosure and the paddock. Although not a great gambler felt we had to go to this top attraction in Mauritius, once you have experienced... More

Even my 5 and 7 year old girls loved it. Dress smartly, bet on odd horses (I recommend the favourites) enjoy the atmosphere and the lovely snacks and the gin tonic and spend a fabulous day at the races. This actually was one of the highlights of our week in Mauritius.

The horse racing in Mauritius (Port Louis) is not to be missed even if you aren't a horse lover, and this is the way to do it in style. Visit the Crown Lodge website for details, a private car will pick you up from your hotel late morning and drive you to the race course which is in the centre... More

We visited the Crown Lodge as part of our holiday and had a lovely day. A day of lovely chilled champagne with a balcony view over the finish line. service was very good. food in the form of canapés are served throughout the visit. "sausage on stick" style food which was average. everybody was friendly and had a great time.
