We decided to marry in November 2012 in the Sofitel after talking to Monika Beumers (German sales manager & wedding planner) who in advance consulted us in all matters quickly and professionally. The hotel itself has one of the biggest and one of the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius. Though the hotel was completely booked during our stay, the pool, the beach and garden seemed lonely. Next to many sun loungers there are plenty of generous outdoor canopy beds in the garden, where you can lay and enjoy the sound of nature. The beautiful architecture of the hotel and the whole complex incl. Japanese garden, So-Spa and the beach area help you relax immediately. The rooms are very comfy and clean, especially the beds are gorgeous!
The hotel has one main restaurant with theme buffet which changes each day. There are three more restaurants which the guests can choose: Jacaranda (French beach restaurant), Ming Court (Chinese restaurant) and a Japanese show cooking restaurant. We can especially recommend Jacaranda, who offers great fish directly at the beach. Only the prices for wine are extraordinary, unfortunately. The service staff is always very keen to make your stay as nice as possible. Especially Monika tries to fulfill each and every wish you can imagine. Our wedding took place at a nice spot at the hotel beach. The open pavilion was beautifully decorated with flowers according to our wishes. Monika accompanies the wedding couples the whole day and takes care of every detail. Soon she will be able to manage the weather as well ;-). She also accompanied us at our church wedding in St. Marc at Flic en Flac in her private time and has become a member of our family!!! Sandiren and his brothers (hotel photographer and videographer) did a great job: we had so much fun with all three of them, that the pictures and video seem very natural and relaxed!
Altogether we would marry again here, because the whole stay and our wedding were more beautiful than we imagined. Thanks to everyone, especially Monika, in Sofitel and see you soon!
