We stayed in this newly opened resort managed by Intercontinental with a group of friends. We have been travelling to Mauritius every single year and this hotel is another great addition to the destination, being brand new and with hips things to do.The hotel is well located on the west coast of the island, minutes away from the capital city...

We wanted to take off from the hustle & bustle of daily life and chill out. We couldn't have found a better place. It was a great place to go for a holiday where all of us enjoyed. The hotel took our breadth away and the rooms were fantastic.

Our departure time was at 7.20 p.m and dinner only starts at 7.00 p.m. On our request Chef Victor and Anurag served us early dinner at 6.45 p.m with a special meal for... More

The hotel has gone for a "Soft opening" meaning that it won't be fully open until September. The up side of this is that you can get some good deals, the downside is that you have to be a little patient with some of the systems which aren't quite up to speed. The welcome was adequate, although we were just... More

My husband and I had gone to Mauritius for a relaxation and rejuvenation. This hotel provided both. Its very airy and open. Gives one a lot of their own space. Its very new hotel and still facing teething problems. Will take another 3-4 months before they can boast of a world class service levels. Rooms are good and all face... More

This hotel is simply fantastic, and located on the side of the island where the beaches are usually full of volvanic rocks, but not this place. They have obviously gone through a lot of trouble to clear the beach which has a stunning lagoon, perfect for kids to play and Kayaking without the roughness of the sea. Service is very... More

First time in Mauritius but not in Intercontinental hotels. This time for our honeymoon in a so nice deluxe terrace room with private whirlpool (yes!). People are so nice, very good service, big main swimming pool, beautiful beach, delicious food, wonderful spa, especially double room, so romantic! As the hotel is close to Grand Baie and Port Louis, it was... More

the hotel is fabulous. it is very grand. the rooms are well furnished and clean. the food spread is good. the drinks are resonable. there are too many rocks on the beach which makes it impossible to swim in the ocean. the snorkelling site is 20 min walk from the hotel. the glass bottom boat and other rides have still...

The journey from the airport to the hotel was very pleasant. The representatives of the hotel didn't mention that you shouldn't tip these guys until you're on the return leg of the journey going home, so be aware. I know its only pennies but it does leave a bad taste in your mouth within the first few minutes of arriving... More

Spent 8 day at the IC Mauritius (family of 5) that is in "very" soft opening mode (to say the least)! The Service (Food an Beverage+ Nautical Activities even though they had very little to offer at the time because of not being able to go past the reef - no pass opened yet) was second to none. Very attentionate... More
