“stunning view”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

We went for business for 2 nights only and ended up coming home booking a second trip for a longweekend with the kids - that is how amazing we found the hotel. Real value for money and friendly and helpful staff. I am not sure how such a beautiful view was kept a secret for so long.

Room Tip: if possible get a room with a sea view - it is a superb view

My husband and mother spent 7 wonderful nights at The Bay Hotel and loved every minute of it.
The setting is superb and the service excellent. The staff go out of their way to look after you and really make their guests feel at home. It's a perfect spot for a relaxing holiday - suitable for couples and families but probably not solo travellers.

An absolutely fantastic experience and probably the best stay we have had in any accommodation. We stayed for 3 nights at the end of a 2 week holiday to Mauritius. It was a great place to relax and unwind. All the staff were very welcoming and helpful and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The food was excellent and although I was vegetarian the chef prepared a different meal for me each evening. Breakfast was buffet style with a huge choice of fruit juice, fresh fruit, cereal, bread, toast etc but a cooked breakfast was offered as well. The restaurant was virtually on the beach where you could watch spectacular sun sets. We chose a room with a seaview. The room was very spacious with a huge bathroom, balcony with table ,chairs and sofas, and more than enough storage space. The hotel is in a very peaceful location, set well away from main roads and other hotels. The beach, although narrow, was very clean with soft sand and not at all busy.

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra for one of the rooms with a seaview and balcony.

A 5 nights' stay at the Bay Hotel was a great unwinding experience for me and my wife. There were so many aspects of the Hotel that touched our hearts that we wished, time stopped then and there. From the time you get up in the morning till you retire at night, we were in paradise, in a state of tranquility, with angels in the human form serving us and taking care of our needs. The staff of the hotel is par excellence in their politeness, manners,desire to help and an ever pleasant disposition.The chef took extra efforts to prepare vegetarian cuisine to suit my wife's tatse.All these made us feel at home away from home, never felt we're so many miles from home; the warmth,friendliness,love and care were palpable all through our stay. Its a perfect score of 10 for the Hotel and a strong recommendation for one and all.
It was our Silver Anniversary that week and believe me,the Bay Hotel ( no one knew about it) gifted us Golden moments to treasure life long. Mauritius is a Must visit country and the Bay Hotel is the icing.Thanks to staff at the Front office,House Keeping, Restuarant , chef and everyone else who made this trip of ours a truly memorable one ! Cheers and God Bless you all.

Room Tip: We chose a Superior Room on the first floor with a stunning view of the ocean and the sunset. This h...

The Bay Hotel is compact and smart. We stayed for 2 nights of an 8 night Mauritius holiday. The rooms were comfortable, the bathrooms were a bit small, but this didn't bother us for a 2 night stay. The pool area was a relaxing spot to lie around and read a book for a few hrs. I didn't swim at the beach as I found it rather uninviting. The food at the restaurant was quite good by hotel restaurant standards and the service was excellent in all areas around this small property.
I'd recommend this place for travellers that want to be away from crowds, and enjoy a nod towards boutique chic accom without a huge price tag. i think we ended up spending around $270 AUD per night which included dinner and breakfast for 2.

Room Tip: Try and book early for a suite, we missed out, I am sure that would have been a lot roomier.

Real spirit of Mauritius! Great food, friendly and professional staff, we had a nice room on the ground floor with a direct access to the garden and pool. We would recommend it to everybody for a few nights!

Room Tip: It's worth to pay for the bigger rooms

We spent 8 nights at the hotel. The hotel has a very relaxing atmosphere in a very pleasant setting.
We were warmly welcomed and the staff was at all times helpful and attentive to our needds. They made our stay most enjoyable.
It is situated in a quieter but beautiful part of the island and would recommend to any couple wanted an unrushed and relaxing break.
