“Wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Copy of our thank you email sums it up !

Dear Jennifer and Naushad

Firstly, whilst this letter is addressed directly to you both, it is for all the wonderful staff at the Veranda Grand Baie who contributed their, time, thoughts and effort into making our wedding day such a fantastic success.

Both Rxxxxxxxx and I continue to play different snapshots of the day through our minds, swap notes and compare memories.

It has to be said that neither one of us has a bad word or memory of the day, the staff, or the setting.

That said, there are also moments which we will look back on and laugh at, for instance the usher in trainers trying desperately to sync up the music for the recessional, or the wonderful speeches from Pasteur N.... which were "timeless" giving both myself, R.... ( photographer ) and of course yourself Naushad, near heart-failure with the sunset and other time critical events !

The location was perfect, as we both mentioned the setting provided for a natural auditorium in which to host the event, our party size fitted perfectly into the space.

The decorations, which I, xxxx hadn't realised how well would work with the floating look, combined with the artistry from the chef and team was just superb.

Whilst on the subject of the catering, we take our collective "hats off" to the chef and her team, truly amazing, the food and as mentioned decoration was superb (sorry to repeat that word), a credit to the hotel and wider reputation of the Veranda group.

Finally, without doubt, the overall support, generosity and kindness from everyone helped make it a truly memorable day.

We would be most grateful if you could convey our heartfelt gratitude to the entire team who went beyond their duties to make this day truly wonderful for us. We enjoyed the familial experience.

As discussed, I plan to book our first anniversary with you, room xxx on xx October 2014.

Hopefully see you all next year.

Best wishes
M & R

Room Tip: Beach & Pool view rooms are lovely.

Dear TripAdvisor Members

The teams have kindly reminded me to make a reply on their behalf - so there it is:

" They are still recovering from the woaw effect of an awesome wedding, more so since they felt like it was a family member who was getting married, and yes, they were 100% into it ...; they can't wait to welcome you back, and, in the meantime you are both being summoned to honour, obey and take care of each other "....Voila...!!!

May God bless!

With my kind regards and special greetings from Naushad too!

We have just returned from the verandah grand baie after having spent our 45th wedding anniversary there ...we will spend our next 45 there aswell !!,
A lovely hotel set in a beautiful surrounding of grand baie with all the amenities needed on a holiday not far away from shops markets malls restaurants and local attractions and plenty more
On arrival we were met by the hotel staff and given welcoming drinks and a short tour of the hotel and it's surroundings ..everything was taken to our room and we were left with all the information we needed
The atmosphere around the hotel was always buzzing and you were met and greeted by the staff everywhere you went
On our anniversary we were presented with a cake some souvenirs a makeover in the room and a big fuss from all......unforgettable...thanks
The buffet breakfast was always plentiful as was the evening buffet ..plenty of choices
Some of it was a little repetitive but it was well prepared and tasty ... If you had an allergy or could not take spicy meals then they were always keen to offer you an alternative
The small beach was private and adequate and offered you many free facilities including pedaloes canoeing glass bottom boats trips and island BBQs winsurfing and scuba diving for a small fee
The staff treated you like family and the manageress is always on hand to ensure you are being looked after
There is entertainment every night and that is really first class from singing to dancing to magic great fun
Special mention to some lovely staff. Payne belisa Zania Jeff Hausard peckos and also chandaranee who looked after our room
Jennifer runs a good hotel that is in constant competition with many others on the island .....but I think many of the others they are still trying to find that magic formula
Some people complained about the food ...do not know why ?????....
If you are after a relaxing holiday with plenty to eat plenty to drink plenty to do with plenty of sun and plenty of very professional courteous and friendly staff......this is the place to be
We will be back in March .........Thank you all once again...lovely memories

Dear TripAdvisor Member

We are most grateful for having taken the time to write us your full appreciation of your recent sejourn here with us!

It has been a great pleasure to have hosted yourself and your spouse.
( When I now take a tour of the property, from the street side, my thoughts go towards somebody who lost his way and went instead to our neighbour, the GBYC )- such are little funny moments that we personally cherish and relish in...!

We do, indeed, look forward to welcoming you back!

In the meantime, enjoy a lovely Christmas and all our very best wishes to you and your family!

With my kind regards and special greetings to you from Naushad

My husband surprised me with a stay here in january of this year for a very belated honeymoon!
It was absolutely beautiful! The staff took their time to explain everything and take us around. There was a swimming pool over looking the beach, perfect for drinking piña coladas!!
From the restaurant we could watch the sunset and the tide come in! Food was mixed, many different options. When we had finished, the staff brought us out a little "congratulations" cake!! It was so lovely!

Oh dear! What an absolute property. I went there for a weekend getaway and we locked up in Privilege Suite.
Incredible atmosphere, even though the food was not to the standard of the rest of the property; as in not a large variety offering to clients at the Buffet, but it was amazing.
I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an incredible tan by the beach on the north coast! Cost effective and reliable! Courteous staff and lovely personal touch to each client.
i would kill to go back again.

We stayed at the Veranda Grand Baie hotel for our honeymoon. Before our trip I read a few reviews about the hotel and some people complained about the service, food and entertainment - I TOTALLY DISAGREE!

My (new) wife and I stayed at the hotel from 13-20 October 2013 and we are VERY impressed. On arrival we were given welcome drinks, friendly smiles and a brief overview of the hotel, the restaurant and spa.

The Meals:
Breakfast - excellent!
Lunch - beyond excellent!!
Dinner - excellent!

The Hotel and Staff:
Seriously, from arrival to departure we only had positive encounters with staff members! Very friendly people that really went the extra mile to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. The hotel room was also great, not sea or pool view, but really can't complain about the room.

Entertainment:
This hotel has there own little private beach that we really loved! Free Wifi included. BEAUTIFUL pool area and very good pool-side service from the waiters. The staff at the beach house was also very helpful, we wanted to parasail, ski, swim with dolphins, snorkel etc and the beach house guys simply made a call each time and a boat picked us up right in front of the hotel.

Overall:
We loved this place sooo much that we are actually planning to return next year for our one year anniversary.

I you visit the Veranda Grand Baie I promise you that you will have the experience of your life!

Room Tip: If you like to sleep early (21:00-23:00) I recommend NOT taking a pool view room as the evening ente...

Just back from a fantastic 10 days at Veranda Grand Baie. Beautiful location; wonderful staff; great facilities. We really couldn't have wished for more. Highly recommend this hotel especially with young children. We will definitely return.

Some of our favourite staff members to watch our for:
- Zania, who gave us a wonderful welcome and stayed back to see us off!
- Vimah at the Spa, for her magical hands and great sense of humour!
- Jeetan at the bar who so inspired our youngest son who is now compiling his own fruit cocktail menus
- Jaya who looked after our room and added all those extra touches for the children.

All four of them made our stay that bit extra special with their great smiles, warm and caring approach. We left with heavy hearts but a thousand warm memories.

Thank you all at Veranda Grand Baie.

Many thanks for your post!

We are indeed very proud of our team members; as you know the pictures of our shining stars stand at reception and it is great to see the interest that guests pay to them.

We do look forward to seeing you soon - the children would have grown as children normally do... they grow fast, and before we know it, we have great young men and women in front of us... Do not be too long before coming back...!

It's our 3rd night we staying for 7 nights. Thus far we are super happy we chose this hotel. We popped in at some of the "neighboring hotels" but have absolutely no regrets. La cuvette beach is literally like they say min walk to the right at the hotels pool side exit. Then u a short bus ride away from most of the popular beaches such as Perebeye (3min), Trou Aux Biches (10min) Mont Choisy (5min) etcetera. Overall the service at the hotel was personal, they took special attention to our celebration ammd their eagerness to help is welcoming as well as their friendliness makes one feel appreciated. The entertainment changes each evening so that's great. The atmosphere is comfy and has that island effect. Will do a final review once our stay is done :-)
