On the southwest coast of Mauritius, within the Domaine de Bel Ombre area, a mammoth 6,000-acre former sugar estate, the Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa is a colonial-style beachfront escape. The plantation-inspired rooms overlook a lagoon or the river that cuts through the grounds, and they feature French windows, ceiling fans, pale green and ocean-blue fabrics, and a balcony or terrace; the Junior Suites come with four-poster beds dressed with gauzy drapes, and all rooms have both tubs and separate showers in the bathrooms. The white sand beach offers bamboo deck chairs and waiter service (including free sunglass cleaning), and the decadent pool area features a pavilion-style bar. There are three restaurants on-site (Annabella’s for classic brasserie dishes from an open kitchen, Le Palmier for toes-in-the-sand beachfront dining, and Gin’ja for pan-Asian fare) and another nine restaurants and six bars within the Domaine de Bel Ombre area. For active types there’s an 18-hole championship golf course, tennis courts, a croquet lawn, kitsesurfing, waterskiing and daily tai chi and yoga sessions. For more relaxed recreation, try the spa’s signature outdoor massage or the hydrotherapy pool.
In the Area
The Domaine de Bel Ombre region is a destination in itself, with miles of lush foliage and tiny white sand coves. To experience more of the region’s natural beauty, visit Black River Gorges National Park or the serene Rochester Falls. Southeast of the hotel, in the traditional village of Mahebourg, is the National History Museum, where you can learn about the island’s history, art and culture. Closer to home, the hotel offers plenty of water-based activities, including fishing, waterskiing, PADI diving and snorkeling.
How to Get There
From arrival to The very end we have been sourrounded by warmth , professionality , kindness and luxury . Ashni - our hostess was superb , taking care and always step ahead of our needs . We recommend this venue to anyone looking for peace of mind , fantastic food , relaxing atmosphere and unique hospitality .
Had excellent 10 day stay over half term with 9&17yo boys. Food excellent Annabellas staff are an asset to resort Rovine heads a wonderful team (Ashley, Doraline, Visnoo to name a few of many). Had excellent wine tasting with Amar too, highly recommend that! Beach and especially the small pool the children frequent is top notch and the gardens are pretty special. Plenty of excursions to chose from, particularly enjoyed quad biking in the reserve and waterfall swimming! If sitting by pool and being fed and watered is your thing then look no further, special mention to ranjeev who had canny knack of knowing and delivering what we wanted before we did! Finally the concept of your own host was new to us and ours being Ashish organised everything, nothing too much trouble and a great credit to the establishment, he seemed to be everywhere! So if you want service without the stuck up feel, quality food and stunning surroundings then you can’t go too far wrong coming here. Also the pancake/ice cream kiosk is great idea especially for the younger ones really simple but excellent touch. We did the Gourmet Bliss all-inc and definitely worth it and good value assuming you stay on site most of holiday, some logger reds on the GB wine list would help by the way, personal opinion there.
Beautiful coastal gardens settings. Excellent selection of restaurants. Long sandy beach with great water sports facilities including kite surfing in warm seas. Comfortable beds in very well proportioned en suite rooms. Friendly, helpful welcoming staff. Super golf course on site. The only down side is the expense. On half board we spent an additional £500. Breakfasts were so good there was no need to eat lunch before evening meals. Remember to book restaurants in advance by at least 24 hours. The attentive guest relations staff well help you with anything and make a point of touching base with you on an at least daily basis.
