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

This is one item you will definitely have to add to any bucket list. Horseracing at the Crown Lodge. It is an superb extrasensorial experience that will enchant you and add the cherry topping to your holidays. It is an opportunity to sample this quite unique atmosphere and culture of Mauritius. Your senses will be thrilled. The views from the... More

What an amazing day our group of 6 experienced, hospitality at its best thanks to Jacques and his fantastic staff. The crowd is exciting, the beer & champagne flows all day. We would highly recommend a day in the Crown Lodge to anyone who visits Mauritius.

We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the racecourse. Give the size of the island, at least 10,000 race goers which makes for a great atmosphere. The beer and champagne are flowing all day and the box is onthe winning line which all adds to the excitement. The food was ok but not in keeping with the... More

Six of us spent a fantastically enjoyable day with Crown Lodge at the races. We were picked up from our hotel and driven the hour or so to Port Louis and welcomed to the viewing box at the finishing line. We watched 10 races, had flowing 'champagne' and hot and cold snacks all day. The atmosphere was very friendly and... More

Whilst holidaying in Mauritius, decided to enquire (via e-mail) directly with Jacques Ritter at The Crown Lodge regarding attending a race meeting. Within 10 minutes I had received a phone call from the man direct to my hotel room stating that it is better to speak direct. Unbelievable. Anyhow the details were discussed and the rest as they say is... More

Had super day here courtesy of Jaques Ritter. Great host who kept us well supplied with food and drink. Had a couple of winners so that made the day even more perfect. Do not miss it if you are going to Mauritius in the next few weeks.

Whatever you do if you are in Mauritius and are going to the races you must be part of Crown Lodge. The hospitality was second to none and made for a very memorable day out. Do yourself a favour and DO IT!
