I stayed for 13 nights 2-14 Dec, the hotel is set in the most beautiful part of Mauritius, with the stunning backdrop of the mountain. The hotel is beautifully designed and decorated to a very high standard. I was very luck to have been upgraded to a ocean front room, just steps away from the beach, well worth considering paying the extra for this room and a nice touch a complimentary bottle of Champagne on ice on our arrival. The rooms are luxurious, with his & hers marble sinks, huge oval bath, and a walk in rain shower, the veranda is a nice size with sofas, tables and chairs.
There is a coffee machine and a complimentary mini bar, although the coffee machine has a mind of its own, it has senses, so lights up when you are in the room, this can be annoying especially at night. The food was excellent, breakfast was served in the main part of the building overlooking the swimming pool, there is no expense spared with the chairs, cutlery etc, all of a very high standard. There is a wide choice for breakfast from fruit, pastries, yogurts, etc, try the coffee latte- gorgeous. There are several restaurants, Simply India, this was ok, but did not have the wow factor as expected from a michelin star chef. The Floating Market is the best by far, serving asian fusion, try the desserts absolutely amazing. The Boat House is set on the beach, this is where lunch is served and is open 3 nights a week for dinner. Le Manoir is French style dining, very nice, but limited choice, i did find with all the restaurants the menus did not change in the 2 weeks i stayed, hopefully with time, this may change, the hotel had only been open for 4 weeks. The beach is beautiful and the water is clear, very good for snorkelling, the hotel is set in a lagoon, with coral reefs, the hotel is next to the world renowned kite surfing site, well worth a walk to watch the kite surfers in action! Nice little touches whilst sunbathing are the fruit and ice drinks served throughout the day, but for me, and i have stayed in very nice hotels around the world, was the excellent service from all the staff who served me throughout my stay, my butlers Hugo and Risihi, they were lovely and Joel, who served me at breakfast and Joelle the beautiful lady who met us at breakfast and lunch, and our english mate Luc, wonderful person, Fabienne who spoke with us on a daily basis and i would also like to mention how sophisticated the uniforms were, all staff looked amazing. Overall, this is truly a fantastic, opulent and luxurious resort and probably the best on the island by far, it far exceeds a 5 star rating. I am looking forward to return in the very near future.
