“Truly unique experience”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

We stayed in Sankhara’s impressive five bedrooms villa for almost a week in June. This is a true paradise on earth! Both villas (5 bedrooms and 3 bedrooms) are ocean front, located in a very secluded area in the North East of Mauritius. Personally this is my favourite part of the island as it is picturesque and not overcrowded by tourists and traffic as is the West coast. Sankhara is an ideal place for those who are looking for ultimate privacy. The white sandy beach is great and the sea is very peaceful because it is situated in a beautiful, serene bay protected by reefs. The villa came with personal staff including butler, chef and house keepers. In a few words: total privacy, excellent service, fantastic food (fine dining fusion cuisine), spectacular views and beautiful beach. Thanks to Sankhara’s team including Armelle and Chloe for making our stay unforgettable! We are already planning our next visit!!!

What a beautiful villa's and what a great hospitality! The interior is spectacularly beautiful!
The meals that the Chef made for us were Michelin star worthy. A perfect place to have a great relaxed family-holiday! Or just go with a bunch of friends to have a great full-catered holiday! Kyte-surfing is possible at sea in front of the villas! The concierge/butler can arrange all kind of excursions or activities for those who want so. For me the most intimate villa holiday I've ever had! Sankhara; I'll be back!

Sankhara Villas are quite simply heaven on earth. The accommodation is six star ! The beach with its Crystal clear sea and white sand is as near to private as you can get. But the staff are what make the experience so very special. The chef should have a Michelin star and all of the butlers and maids provide the kind of service that even Her Majesty the Queen would be impressed by.
The Island itself is paradise and the people are so very jolly.
As a frequent traveller this holiday was one of the best I have ever had !!
It should be on your top ten list of things to do before you die !!

I arrived extremely stressed after busy months of moving house, working hard and going out. I was in dire need of a holiday! Sankhara I was soon to discover is the perfect place where stresses of life fall away. The villas are extremely comfortable, the beach is wild and beautiful, like a desert island beach - but with room service! Whcih brings me on to the staff at Sankhara, who are truly delightful. The food is incredible and everything is done for you, with the most lovely happy smiles. My only regret is that time has a tendancy to fly and I was all too soon on the plane back to London.

Room Tip: Looking out the garden and sea beyond
