Given how little choice there is for business travellers in Port Louis, this quaint hotel is a welcome addition to the scene. It is an essentially a B&B and that is not a knock on the place at all. The owners provide very personal service and I enjoyed chatting with them. When I called to get driving directions they were... More

If you need to stay near Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius, but need to escape at the end of the day, this is the best place that you can ask for. Idyllic surroundings, peaceful, a real homely atmosphere and great food; what more can you ask for.

The setting for this hotel is absolutely idyllic; the staff are lovely; the atmosphere is informal but professional; the food is good and generous; the rooms are large and comfortable and very clean. There is even a kettle provided in the room. Your meals are served in a pretty little gazebo in the garden, watching local fishermen wading out with... More

we visited this hotel in january, villa is very beautiful, like on pictures. It was perfect service, very clean and comfortable room, tasty breakfast, very polite staff. But it isn't good location for rest: all beaches very far and there isn't some shops or bars, restaurants etc.

This is absolutely not the hotel for business travelers "with the quality of service of a luxurious hotel" that it claims to be. At best, this is a recently renovated familiy home in a nice setting, where you are welcomed by owners and staff in shorts and flip flops and share the living room with the kids' toys and the...

Fed up with big hotels? Come here! This is a French/Mauritian villa run by a smart French couple called Caroline and Alex with two young boys. They have several letting rooms which were spacious and well furnished and a bungalow which was smaller but offers more privacy. The staff are local and serve a great breakfast plus, if you want...

I stayed here for three nights and loved it! Beautiful colonial style house with swimming pool and sea view, lovely rooms and good food. The hotel is family owned and has seven bedrooms which makes it very easy to meet other guests. The hotel is not in a tourist area and there is no beach in front of the hotel... More

Caroline and Alex had recently arrived in the Villa Anakao and were in the process of upgrading rooms during my stay of 2 weeks. Hence there was some hammering and drilling, but all to improve the experience for guests. I started in the yellow room and ended in the orange room - each room is being renovated according to a...

Close to Port Louis, in a very calm environment, warm welcoming and confortable rooms, surrounded by a nice garden. The swimming pool with sea view and the great breakfast help to start the day. Very close to business centers and beach ressorts. Villa Anakao is definitely a place to recommand !
