Let's face it - it's not difficult to find a hotel on the beach in Mauritius, but The Bay Hotel is different from the rest. We found The Bay to be relaxed and not overly pretentious. Good value for money, charming service if a little slow at times...but hey, we weren't in a hurry! You can choose your seating at... More

Stayed at the bay for a week and had such a perfect time. The rooms are great and very clean, but what sets this place appart is the friendliness of the staff, the delicious restaurant, the beautiful chill out pool and the sunset. Guests off the 5 star and over priced hotels on the island come here to enjoy the... More

We stayed nearby and stopped on a walk to have a drink and found a wonderful restaurant that complements this charming hotel. The cocktails were delicious and the view even more so. We are going back there for dinner tonight. The menu looks amazing and we can't wait.

My wife and 2 children are frequent visitors of the Bay Hotel for breakfast, lunch, dinner, group excursions. We had not stayed overnight as yet (as children are quite young). This is an exceptional boutique hotel - the layout of the hotel is amazing - nestled in between other hotels and restaurants, it is larger than it looks from the... More

A beach front al fresco restaurant which is a haven of peace and quiet, except you will all spoil it now by going to enjoy a lazy time there. Enjoyed a non-alcoholic cocktail and a snack in the form of a fantastic Cheeseburger (sorry typical Brit abroad here), but it was a lovely blend of flavours so I have no... More

We go there for our relaxed Sunday lunch by the beach with a beautiful view. Very good food specially the Mauritian specialties which are authentic and tasty. The General Manager and his wife are professional, friendly and give a soul to the place.

I visited the Bay last year and returned again at the end of April with my daughter and a friend/colleague. Once again for me this was largely a work trip; it was even better than my first visit! The hotel is so comfortable and easy to be in and the staff could not be friendlier. On arrival I was warmly... More

When we decided on Mauritius as our vacation destination we were clear from the beginning that we did not want one of those huge 200 rooms + monstrosities but rather something private with few rooms. We actually found The Bay Hotel on tripadvisor and decided to book it based on the very good recommendations. And what a find it is... More
