We visited the Tamassa for two weeks in Jan/Feb. It is a fabulous hotel set in acres of beautifully tended garden. Three pools, good beach (Shoes need in sea because of coral) Lots and lots of sunbeds with plenty of space. The accommodation was first class, we had a bedroom, dressing room, bathroom with his and her basins, shower and bath and a separate WC. All the rooms are in two or three storey chalets surrounding two of the pools. Many have a side sea view.
There are two restaurants, the main one serves buffet style meals with a vast variety of food the other, adjacent to the beach is a gourmet restaurant (booking required for dinner). We did not have a bad meal the whole holiday and my only comment about the gourmet restaurant is that they give you too much.
The staff just could not have been better, going out of their way to be helpful. It could be said that `they went the extra mile.
Out and about is safe and the natives are friendly. English is widely spoken.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel if you can afford it.
The down side is getting there and back. We went with BA and paid almost £1000 each to upgrade and it was the worst flight we have ever had. The food was rubbish and the staff rude and arrogant (I asked for a deink and was rudely told to go get my own!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A new experience awaits guests at this beautiful all-inclusive beach hotel in Mauritius, located in Bel Ombre, on the island's south-west coast. Tamassa, a 4-star beach hotel, stands at the end of a long avenue of mature coconut palms towering skywards. A picture postcard landscape stretches across sugarcane fields to the mountains beyond. The south-west is a beautiful part of Mauritius, with spectacular walks and drives through lush, tropical hillsides and a range of open-air activities in beautiful countryside. In front of the beach hotel, beyond the sandy beach, lies a turquoise lagoon that almost blends into the skyline. The sea air is invigorating and the ripples of the waves gently calming. Beyond, lie thousands of miles of open sea. The traditional style architecture ideally suits the tropical setting, with beautifully landscaped gardens. The buildings seem at one with the environment. The decor is breathtakingly contemporary, with clean lines and bold use of colour. The atmosphere is one of eternal youth, friendly, cheerful and enthusiastic. Tamassa is a new Mauritian experience! ... more less
