Apart from a well serviced room set just meters from the sea, with plenty of tasty food (as one would expect) what impressed us most was the attitude of the staff of this resort… nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel very special. We are already discussing a return visit.

All this review really needs is that the Westin is one of the best hotels in the world, just book it. But you wouldn’t believe me. I couldn’t help but read the negative reviews here most of which were positive with the wrong star rating, but the Hotel bless them are too polite to correct them! The location is fabulous the service is excellent the food is scrumptious with a variety of restaurants and a buffet to suit all tastes. Then you get the gym and the spa and the pools and maids popping in to your room almost invisible making sure every is perfect. If your booking now probably the whole covid thing might be a concern to you but they even made that easy. We traveled from the UK, there is a lot of form filling and covid passport requirements which made arrival at Mauritius airport slick and the hotel test on day 1 easy. You then rest easy that everyone had jumped through the same hoops. Inside the buildings you wear a mask outside the buildings you don’t and the staff do all the time. So rest assured for me it was easy and hardly an inconvenience. Visit Mauritius they need your custom And I certainly needed R&R at the Westin Turtle Bay.

We enjoyed a brilliant holiday at the Westin. The service was truly world class , matching the beautiful location and exceptional food. Huge thanks go to Pradeep for his wonderful beachside restaurant and team. Plus the beachhouse where Atish took us out to enjoy swimming with turtles and snorkeling on the reef. Would highly recommend this as a great holiday location.
