Again we arrived late at night and driven to our room 112. Room looked wonderful, we fell into bed as usual. Next morning we looked outside and found we were right next to steps down to beach. Next to our bedroom. Not a quiet place for us.Woman was cleaning outside, which meant no sleep. Seems to be a pattern for us ho hum. Excellent room for young persons with private beach access.
Anyway, down to reception and Evan, again such a nice caring man, immediately he showed us to our new room 101, our piece of paradise. When the cleaners had finished we were moved. Evan showed us all we needed to know and we had a big net and welcome on bed with gift. Best room we say and close to restaurants and swimming pool and down on water and out of the way, really quiet. Not too much walking for us.
Meanwhile we went to breakfast and met warm and helpful staff, who showed us all the food and gave us a nice table overlooking sea view. The staff are really attentive to your needs, plate taken and knife and forks appear. The chefs makes mean omelettes, really up to our high standard. Fresh fruit and choices of vegetables. Lots of cheeses too.
All the staff are warm, friendly and respectful, the atmosphere is relaxing and nothing is too much trouble. The housekeeping staff are some of the best, ours in particular had our suite spotless night and morning.
I will again say that trip advisors it is your responsibility to inform the staff of room glitches. There is no way management know if something is wrong unless you say so and others come in to find things later. We had a leaking sink which our maid rang for and in a minute they were here. My partner had a great time explaining how to fix them and tap in toilet. Another great invention for washing your privates, except I washed myself and room. Service was instant!
We had a spa treatment and strong massages together, in same room different masseuse of course. I recommend a treatment in the spa, you have a free luxurious 15 minute one given to you, how good is that? We just used that and extended it. The girls are small but strong steely fingers, just as we like it.
Friday night is seafood night and yum yum yummy. What can I say? Best cooked scallops I have had and prawns small and huge, squid, fishes, add to plate and chef cooks them for you. The service is exceptional. Our little table was put onto balcony, romantic and pretty with lights on water. Chameer made sure our every need was met and ordered more scallops for me.
There was lamb, beef, chicken dishes and assortments of vegetables all well prepared. All the staff were amazing, I don't have enough space to name them all. as if I have not said it enough. Congratulations Mark.
There Are around 30 villas only in this resort, very exclusive and inclusive, we didn't see much of the other guests at all. I am sure they were enjoying their rooms, balconies, spa overlooking the sea and maybe trips arranged by staff, or snorkelling on the beach.
We just wanted to rest on this last part of our huge trip, we swam In the pool and stopped doing anything else. We walked down to The Ian Flemming suite and beach too. Wedding on Saturday night, nice to see for something different.
We had room service pasta dishes one with prawns and bolognese, cheesecake and ice cream also. chameer served us again with vigour had Margherita, good one too and Bacardi and coke. All cold and food hot. Dinner on your balcony is a special treat, you can order what you like.
Australians I have to say, if you are going to Mauritius. Come to Seychelles, only 2/12 hour flight away, not far and take more time here, there are many islands to explore and lots of activities for the young at heart, wind surfing, para flying, skiing, all sorts of things to satisfy the young.
For those who like peace and quiet as well, the Hilton Northolme is for you as well. All my followers in Asia, America, Europe, all over the world, these lovely Indian Ocean countries could do with your support and you are the ones who will benefit from your travels.
We had sun every day we were here and sun lovers and those who like it hot too I recommend this for you
