We had been looking forward to our stay at the new St Regis which had been marketed as the best place to stay on Mauritius. Having read some of the earlier, less than favourable reviews from postings on Tripadvisor, we had some reservations. However we were personally assured by the management that we would be well looked after and that our stay would be exceptional. And they delivered in spades.
Our beautiful sea front junior suite location was absolutely perfect. We had been asked for our preference of room situation and it could not have been more perfect, thanks to Angelique under the auspices and guidance of Bernard de Villèle and Ronan Fearon.
Dining was generally excellent.
Our favourite restaurant of the three that were functioning during our time at St Regis was the Floating Market. Sadly the Boathouse was closed for dinner for the entire duration of our stay. It opened the evening before we left and we were offered a special Mauritian dinner, organised by the affable Matthieu, who pulled all the stops out for us. Thank you Matthieu!
Having had the pleasure of dining there the one and only time, we wished we had had the opportunity to repeat the experience. The ambience and location at night is very special. It would have been on a par with the Floating Market for our personal dining preference. Having said that dinner at Le Manoir was more than pleasant. A few more choices on the menu would have been a bonus.
Breakfast was delightful. There are occasional service issues here but the management are aware of this and are really trying very hard to improve the situation. When it worked it was fabulous. When it didn't and we brought it to their attention, they bent over backwards to try and rectify the problem.
The pastry chef produces fair that is as good as anything we have sampled in France. Delicious! Thanks to Sophie for keeping a watchful eye at breakfast service. You are an asset to the team.
Service on the beach was ultimately exceptional. Thank you Rakesh, beach supervisor, for looking after us so well. You are a star! Thanks also to Jane our very attentive butler.
We did have a couple of minor housekeeping issues, but once again these were quickly remedied by Lisa.
In conclusion, our stay there was a great experience and we were looked after admirably.
The St Regis is a top quality hotel in the making. Thank you Bernard and the team!
