“The perfect honeymoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

The most intimate hotel in an idyllic location with the kindest staff who can't do enough for their guests.

from the moment we arrived we were given 5* treatment with a special blend of informality, friendliness, discretion and professional pride.

The accommodation and public areas are all comfortable, bright and airy, the food is delicious and varied.

The beach is clean white sand and coral, the sea is clear with a small reef for snorkelling and some water sports on site with more available at the nearby Preskill hotel.

We enjoyed our stay so much we are already planning our return, need I say more.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to haggle with taxi drivers, the local rate is much lower than the tourist rate...

Just had a ten day break at the Astroea Beach.It was simply wonderful. The beach was great with a nice little coral reef to explore and some nice long shoreline walks. 3 star it might be but 5 star service it certainly is. The hotel was small and friendly, rooms are light, airy and tastfully decorated. restuarant immaculate with food to match, just could not fault it. Finally the staff, they were superb, right from the start everyone was so helpful, nothing was too much trouble and we can not thank them enough for making our stay so enjoyable. If you want to chillout, relax in beautiful surroundings this is the place. If there were more places like this ,the world would be a much cooler place.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

We flew in the evening to Mauritius en route to Nairobi and had dinner a short night in this hotel.
Meal was simple and wholesome. The hotel immaculately clean and it's major feature right on the Indian ocean 7 meters away. Staff were friendly and helpful. WiFi in reception.

The Astroea Beach is quite a find: its 3-star credentials don't do justice to its 5-star service and attractive design. I suspect that the only thing preventing it from winning a higher star-grading is the hotel's lack of facilities, although I'm not sure what facilities you need when you have good food, a lovely view, simple, appealing rooms, your own beach and the Indian Ocean at your disposal.

The quiet, peaceful nature of the hotel was perfect for us. When we did want some activity we were in the ideal situation of having the Astroea's big, flashy brother a leisurely fifteen-minute walk up the road (or a three-minute speedboat trip when we were lucky). The Preskil Beach resort has a gym, swimming pools, boat trips, sailing boats, a dive school, a spa, bars and all the other staples of this kind of beach resort-hotel. While we were pleased to have these facilities at our disposal (many of them for free) we were even more pleased to leave them behind and return to the calm and personal service of Astroea.

The staff were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and they really went out of their way to make sure we were looked after. When we asked if we could move from a smaller room by the road (perfectly nice, but the traffic was audible) to a beach-front room, they moved us to the spectacular, first-floor room overlooking the ocean with its own large terrace. Personally, I'd prefer a bath to the decent (but not fantastic) showers on offer, but otherwise a good TV, mini-bar and air conditioning are more than enough in the way of room facilities and the beds were very, very comfortable.

If they manage to keep the 16 rooms well-maintained and iron-out the small flaws (the bread and coffee often left room for improvement for example), then this hotel will surely become a hot ticket in no time.

This hotel can be described in one word - amazing!! Everything, from the staff, to the rooms, to the food, is just wonderful. If you are looking for a quite getaway on a stunning white beach with 5 star service and treatment, this is the place for you. Because it is a small, intimate hotel, within a few hours you are on first name terms with everybody. The staff go out of their way to ensure your happiness and satisfaction. The food is out of this world. Don't take teenagers there, but if you are a young family, or of the older genre like myself - get there and rediscover what real peace and serenity is all about!
Glynnis.

Room Tip: Choose a sea facing room. They cost a bit more, but are definitely worth it!

We stayed at Astroea Beach from 8th - 20th April 2012. It was everything we wanted it to be and more. Huge room and balcony with an uninterrupted view of the lagoon. Only 15 minutes from the airport, so much better than the 1 hour + trawl to the north of the island, yet so peaceful.

The staff are all fantastic, they make you feel at home so quickly. How often does it take nearly a week to unwind - here it took less than a couple of hours to be totally relaxed! The food is great, you can choose lunch from a varied menu or let the chef make something specially for you. In the evening the menu is more limited but again the chef will make you something special if you wish. The all-inclusive package is great.

Astroea Beach hotel is linked to the big Preskil Beach resort about a kilometre away but being small makes it so much better, the personal service is top grade. There is no pool but they do have kayaks and snorkel equipment available to use. They can help you arrange your own tours and have 3 taxi drivers they normally use if you want an excellent custom tour at a reasonable price.

The hotel opened in January and have everything running really well. We wanted a peaceful break with excellent service and that's exactly what we had, a perfect holiday.

We arrived to this hotel in the beginning of March 2012. The room was huge, beautiful balcony in front of the sea. Employees were very kind. You feel like at home. The food was very good. You are like in a paradise. Only 16 bedrooms and this means relax, serenity and more. Better than a big resort. This is only 3 stars but they deserve much more. You can ask whatever you want...and you get. Position is perfect as you can visit all the main places easily. They help you in organizing the excursions. A big thank to all this team that made us a unique vacation. The team is very polite and helpful.
We will be back there for sure again.

Our suggestion is: BE THERE!!!

If you need more informtion, contact us!!!

Enjoy your trip!
