We are coming to the end of a two week holiday at the St Regis and have been blown away by the exceptional standard of this hotel. It was a toss up between the St Regis and the One and Only but I was drawn to the St Regis by the huge choice of restaurants that are included in the half board package unlike the One and Only and the fact that children are allowed to eat in the restaurant after 8pm!
The location of the St Regis is hard to beat... The backdrop of Le Morne is stunning and its hard to imagine a more perfect white beach and clear blue water in the lagoon with crashing waves in the distance... Picture perfect and the stuff dreams are made of.
The check in was faultless with cold towels and a welcome drink and then escorted to our room by buggy where a welcome bottle of wine was there as well as a plate of fruits and sweets for our son with his name inscribed on the plate. The room is 1st class and really benefits from everything being new.... The most comfortable bed ever imaginable.... Brilliant view of the beach and sea from the spacious balcony....huge bathroom with large bathtub and powerful shower but it was the little touches that made a difference like a little bathrobe and slippers for our son Jack which many other 5star hotels don't even think about.
We are big foodies and really appreciate great food....and again the St Regis has not disappointed us. The quality of the breakfast is exceptional with anything you could ever want imaginable ... And if its not the chef will make it for you. Even the choice of fruit juices with between 7-10 freshly squeezed juices is mind blowing.... And to top it all there is complimentary sparkling wine available should you want it. We have eaten in all of the five restaurants and the food quality and choice is as good as you would get anywhere in the world...and if you would like something that is not on the menu they will happily make it for you. The floating market restaurant has an amazing Monday buffet with as much sushi and sashimi as you want. We enjoyed the Indian restaurant as well although thought it was a little pricey compared to top establishments in London including the chefs own restaurant.
The kids club is exceptionally well managed with a full program of great and well thought out activities throughout the day.... Including things like intro water skiing... Glass bottom boat trips... Cooking lessons. All of the staff in the kids club are exceptional and we would have no hesitation leaving our son with them... Although our son is only 3 and kids need to be 4 to be left there unattended by parents.
The facilities of the hotel are too numerous to mention but highlights are... A huge gym with technogum equipment.... A massive HEATED swimming pool... Most other hotels pools are not heated and boy do you feel the difference.... Free watersports including waterskiing .... A games room if the weather is not great.... Floodlit tennis court.... It goes on and on!!!!
And finally the staff at the St Regis have been amazing.... Nothing is too much trouble..... I won't mention any one person as the overall consistency has been great from the butlers through to the concierge to the golf buggy drivers to the watersports team.....
After starting a new job this was our first holiday for over a year and I needed a totally relaxing experience that allowed us to get away from it all.... And the St Regis has delivered..... I really don't recognise some of the earlier trip advisor reviews.... This is a great new hotel that must be the very best in mauritius and is up there with any of the best in the world....we'll be back and have no hesitation in recommending to anyone.
