We had a lovely week stay in Villa Sankhara. The management and staff were all very helpful and organised a friendly chef who made us wonderful food. The masseurs that came were all fantastic. Enjoyed our walks on the peaceful beach. Shame the weather didn't permit us to go deep sea fishing so maybe next time. Thank you

We visited Sankhara in July 2014 and there were two couples and a single friend in our party, so well below the maximum occupancy of the largest of the two villas. From the first impression the villa looked "WOW!"--even better than in the photos available on the web! We liked very much the cosy interior of this Indonesian-style villa, tastefully... More

Beautiful villa right on the beach, just idyllic. Will always treasure the memories from this trip and this as more as a result of the villa itself rather than the service provided within. Sankhara need to work on providing a 5 star experience to reflect the 'exclusivity' of the villa and the rates that they charge.When we stayed there, management... More

The villa is set in a peaceful location although a bit secluded, away from shops etc. When we arrived the manager was not available but we were met by her Junior and the butler. Good welcome, welcome drinks given. The villa itself is very modern , elegant and comfortable. The rooms were always kept spotless. Staff were available during the... More

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

Waking up to the sound of the waves crashing at the beach, what better start on your day. We had an amazing time with great friends at this stunning villa. 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

We stayed in Sankhara’s impressive five bedrooms villa for almost a week in June. This is a true paradise on earth! 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

What a beautiful villa's and what a great hospitality! The interior is spectacularly beautiful! The meals that the Chef made for us were Michelin star worthy. A perfect place to have a great relaxed family-holiday! Or just go with a bunch of friends to have a great full-catered holiday! Kyte-surfing is possible at sea in front of the villas! The... More
