The hotel is excellent.New,sophisticated.Food was great!The only problem is its location.No restaurants,shops or pubs nearby.But if you are looking for privacy and tranquility,it's ideal.I stayed in a Spa Suite,the private pool was awesome.

Dear valued Guest,

Thank you for sharing your comment on Trip Advisor following your recent stay with us at Angsana Balaclava Mauritius.

Our Spa Suites indeed with their veranda and private swimming pool is the perfect spot to attain holiday bliss without stepping out.

We are glad that you enjoyed the food that our Balinese Chef Suardi and his team take great pride in preparing each day. The Angsana Balaclava Mauritius concept aims to provide the most delicious international cuisines as well as contemporary Asian Fusion cuisine.

As for the location of our hotel, it is to be noted that we are only a few kilometres away from the main city Port Louis and 15minutes to Grand bay where all the trendy restaurant and pubs are found.

We trust you had a safe flight back and look forward to welcoming you at Angsana Balaclava Mauritius or any of our resorts worldwide.

Yours sincerely
Pascal Prigent

This was our first time in Mauritius and staying by the sea was really a wonderful experience for us for 6 nights. After a 10 hours flight, we arrived at Angsana around 9 pm plus and pretty exhausted. The check-in was hassle free and quick.

Vinay who checked us in, then showed us around Angsana giving a brief introduction before showing us to our Garden Suite. He was very cheerful, warm and polite throughout which cheered us up too. Nothing is worse than seeing a grumpy, nonchalant staff at reception. He was also very detailed and clear about the whole introduction. When we told him we are both vegetarians, we were happy to know he is a vegetarian too. He volunteered to highlight our food requirements to the kitchen for our following breakfast. Thanks to him, our first breakfast was a delight! We didn't meet him again till our final night and he still remembers us! He asked if everything was fine and if we are happy with their services. Vinay has an excellent customer service attitude who will surely be liked by other guests too.

We were also very pleased with another service staff, Dorasami at the Oryza Restaurant. He is very patient while listening to our vegetarian requirements and actually understands them! He also takes the trouble to remember our likes and dislikes so we don't have to repeat each time. For example, he knows we like soymilk so that is the first thing he would ask when we were at the restaurant for breakfast for dinner. We are very comfortable with his services. Thanks, Dorasami for taking such good care of our food options.

However, we did have some bad experiences with the receptionist by the name of Veena. When we booked a taxi service through her to Port Louis at 11 A.M., she looked expressionless and didn't seem happy to serve us (we can tell from her smirk). Other receptionists were friendly and always put on a warm smile at us, but definitely not Veena. She wasn't attentive to us and gave us the wrong pricing. She told us the rate is 1500Rp, but when we returned to the hotel and paid the taxi driver, the taxi driver showed us the rate from the hotel to Port Louis is actually 1600Rp.

By the way, Veena did not put on a name tag on her chest on that day of her duty, which looks very unprofessional to us. All other staffs have their name tags on all day long. But fortunately, she had her name tag on on the day of our departure, which gave us the chance to write something about her poor attitude. She didn't seem happy or proud to be an Angsana staff.

We have to leave the hotel at 5:30P.M., but we have to check out at 12 P.M., as she claims that our room has been booked for another guest who is coming in very soon. So, we checked out at 12 P.M. as requested and since we have a 5-hour waiting time, we decided to use their business centre. We encountered problem with logging into their computers. We went to her because she is the only staff at the recep and she made us walk to and fro with a wrong password. When we told her the password still failed, she impatiently came to the business centre. She pulled a long face and showed indifference when we asked questions. She fixed one pc but not the other and walked off without a word. When my husband chased out after her, she just waved him off. Very rude of her.

Overall, the food pricing was expensive but with services from staff like Dorasami, it should be well worthwhile. Our Garden suite with a balcony was clean and spacious. The pool was nice. The surroundings was quiet but the tv programs were limited in choices.

Room Tip: Higher floors may have less giant flying ants appearing at balcony

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights for our honeymoon. We found the grounds of the resort and the rooms to be beautiful. The pools were nice but very loud. There was a lack of food options and the special meals were a total rip off. The beach was brown so the pools were the only options. The staff in the boat house were rude and unhelpful but still better then the rest of the service staff. We met a manager on arrival but did not meet anyone else with any knowledge. Reception were useless and had no knowledge of any activities or services offered in the hotel. Food n bev staff were very slow. It took 20 minutes to be served by the pool, 10 minutes to get drinks and 45mins for a plate of calamari! The staff generally gathered together socialising as opposed to working.

I would advise against others staying until service makes it to a least a 3 star level.

Dear Valued Guests,

Thank you for commenting on our resort following your recent stay with us.

We are glad that you found the grounds of the resort and the rooms to be beautiful. Each of our suites and villas have been designed to reflect a Mauritian feel with the fusion of Oriental, Occidental and African cultural influences, but also to be a home away from home.

I would like to seize this opportunity to present my sincere apologies for the disappointing experience and i am truly sorry to hear about all the various issues you encountered.

We are surprised to find out that you found there was a lack of food as everyday we offer a different menu to our guests.

We wish to assure you that all issues experienced are currently being investigated internally. It is our greatest goal to make sure that our guests have a most enjoyable stay with us and I am sorry that we did not achieve our goal on this occasion.

We would like to thank you once again for your comments as these will truly help us to monitor, and improve even further our Angsana services and facilities.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Angsana in June. To start with, Kiran, Olivier at the front desk upgraded us to a Villa and was extremely helpful and friendly during our stay. Everything from the service, the rooms and the grounds of the resort was text book perfect. We stayed there on a half board basis and were initially expecting buffet to be provided at breakfast and dinner and were extremely pleased when we were provided with Michelin star food. We would definitely recommend Angsana to others honeymoon. The hotel staff always ensured that they did their upmost to ensure that we had a great time. We would like to thank all the staff at Angsana for making our honeymoon an enjoyable and memorable experience. Kibria & Shanara Ahmed

Great hotel,
I went to stay there for on the 31st December till 2nd of January. It was awesome. I took the spa suite. The pool on the balcony was so nice. The food was delicious. The price was expensive but then that was probably because it was new year's time so it is understandable. I definitely recommend it to people on honeymoon or who wants to relax.

Room Tip: Definitely go for it

Warmest Greetings from Angsana Balaclava Mauritius.

Thank you for sharing a review on trip advisor following your stay at our Resort last December and thank you for choosing us to celebrate New year eve’s.

The spa Suite is definitely one of our guest’s favourite and there is nothing better than dip in your own private swimming pool during the hot Mauritian Summer. The philosophy behind the resort is based on providing a haven for rejuvenation of the body, mind and soul but also to be an intimate hideaway for couples and honeymooners.

Thank you for commenting on the food that our Balinese Chef Suardi and his team take great pride in preparing each day. At Angsana Balaclava Mauritius, guests are spoilt for choice with our exotic Asian fusion menus as well as international European cuisine, authentic Creole food or even our piquant Indian cuisine.

It has been a great pleasure to have you during the festive season and we hope to welcome you once again at Angsana Balaclava Mauritius.

Yours Sincerely

That is the only way I can explain it, as a Travel agent I have been to plenty of beautiful countries and stayed in some amazing hotels and the Angsana Balaclava is right at the top with them .

Everything from the staff to the rooms and grounds is amazing!!

The hotel staff can’t do enough for,you, on arrival we had a quick and easy check in and
off we went to explore our room, we stayed in a garden suite and it was just like the pictures we had seen, it was very spacious and had all the amenities that you would expect from a 5 star hotel.

We went down for dinner on the first night the restaurant was very beautiful we had seats outside and there was a fashion show going on which was nice and during our meal the manager come over to say hello to us which was really nice of him and great customer service which they seem to be very good at.

The food was amazing the chief was outstanding we ate so much food that we couldn’t move , everyday there was a different menu with so many choices we got confused as we wanted to eat them all and the food presentation was second to none.

The views are stunning the pool area is lovely to relax and unwind in ,even though the hotel was on full occupancies you would never know that it was full.

we had a tour of the grounds and the others villa and suites and they were even more beautiful than the garden suite which we thought was amazing and couldn’t get any better.

I would like to thank all the staff and especially the manage Pascal Prigent for making our stay so memorable .

Keep up the good work and I would be differently recommended this wonderful boutique hotel to all my clients as it is something you truly do need to experience.
