The service standards at the Villa Sankhara easily exceded any of the other luxury holiday destinations that we have visited. There was never a No for any of the requests that we made,even considering the fact that some of our members of our group had very typical requests. Jabir and Anna provided us non stop service with an everlasting smile.The... More

Sankhar Villas under the suave direction of Jean-Francois the unflappable butler is a fantastic blend of tropical idyl and chic boutique residence. Set in the peaceful and unspoiled East of Mauritius, close to famous hotels such as Le Tousserouk, the location is peaceful, quiet and authentically Mauritian. Directly on the beach and tucked away from any intrusions. The service is... More

A perfect location in Mauritius and I would recommend the place to everyone that wants to combine high end accomodation and service with the privacy a private villa gives you.... More

Both villas (5 bedrooms and 3 bedrooms) are ocean front, located in a very secluded area in the North East of Mauritius. Personally this is my favourite part of the island as it is picturesque and not overcrowded by... More

Sankhara Villas are quite simply heaven on earth. The accommodation is six star ! The beach with its Crystal clear sea and white sand is as near to private as you can get. But the staff are what make the experience so very special. The chef should have a Michelin star and all of the butlers and maids provide the... More

I arrived extremely stressed after busy months of moving house, working hard and going out. I was in dire need of a holiday! Sankhara I was soon to discover is the perfect place where stresses of life fall away. The villas are extremely comfortable, the beach is wild and beautiful, like a desert island beach - but with room service!... More
