After looking at numerous hotels in Mauritius, my husband and I decided on the The Oberoi, Mauritius, and it was a wonderful decision. First of all, the hotel is not large as compared to others on the island. Because of this, the hotel has a feeling of exclusivity, quiet and comfort. From the moment we exited our car from the airport, we were greeted warmly, and that warmth continued to grow over the course of 8 days. The grounds are FLAWLESS, and the rooms are STUNNING. We rented one of the private bungalows with a pool, and it was positively lovely inside and out. Beautiful design. Above all, however, was the customer service. Our visit truly felt "customized" in that every staff member knew our names, our room number, and the fact that I was largely a vegetarian. So, every night -- whether I had the same waiter or not -- I was always given the vegetarian menu with lots of choices. Another reviewer indicated that the restaurant did not have a lot of vegetarian picks. I completely disagree. Mind you, I am generally vegetarian (not 100% vegan) so I can't testify to options for pure vegans, but if you are largely vegetarian centered, you will have many, many holistic choices on the menu every night. On that note, the food FAR exceeding our wildest dreams. The chef's creations were creative, memorable, and we really looked forward to our dining "experience" every evening. Likewise, the mixed drinks served at The Oberoi were really note worthy. Some of the best cocktails I have EVER had were served by their bar team. To that end, I give a nod to the homemade lemonades, bloody marys, and mojitos. The Oberoi spa is also something worth mentioning. I've been at the top spas in New York and around the world, and this one really stands out. Incredible design and excellent service. My massage was one of the best I have ever received. As for its location on the island, it is closer to Port Louis so you can see some large cargo boat traffic in the distance when sitting on the hotel's beach, but it is not constant. More so, it's location makes Port Louis an easy destination for shopping and exploring historical buildings. I also understand that at this time of the year, the location of the hotel is drier than other parts of the island. That was definitely true as the island has varying microclimates so some parts of the island seemed to be covered in rain all the time -- with other parts fully sunny. Fortunately, we were on the sunny side. In summary, if you are looking for quiet, serenity, beauty, exceptional dining, a top tier holistic spa, and a customized vacation experience, stay here. It's worth the visit, without a doubt. I really can't say enough about this hotel; it far exceeded both my and my husband's expectations.
