A beautiful, spacious contemporary hotel with very friendly, attentive staff. Everywhere seemed calm and peaceful because of the airy spaciousness. Always lots of free sun-loungers and umbrellas on the beach and never more than 4 or 5 people in the pool. Great long narrow pool for those want to do more serious swimming! Excellent food from the Head Chef, Deviraj, in the Senso Restaurant, also good Indian cuisine in Veda. Nobel House and Segala food rather disappointing. Generally all staff were so friendly, helpful and would go out of their way to do their best. Could not say 'Thank You' enough to Lobeen at the Senso Restaurant, who made our stay so special! We loved listening to Charlen's beautiful voice during evening entertainments. And Neel in Client Relations was unflappable with our various requests and questions. With 2 day trips out, a day hiring a car, a day hiring bicycles and lots of relaxation, there was enough to do to keep us occupied for 2 weeks. I just wish I'd made more use of the free water-skiing while I was there as I only did it right at the end of the holiday! Downsides were that there was no Courtesy Bus to take you into Port Louis and the hotel was rather remote, so nothing of interest nearby.
