Architecture arch white mansion Villa Resort plant Modern stone


A luxury modern resort with impressive fashion credentials on Mauritius’s untamed south coast.

The Look

Zany: Designed by Thai architect Lek Bunnag and Japanese fashion designer Kenzo Takada, the 34-acre resort is home to a floating spa, a moated space age restaurant and a knife-shaped swimming pool with views of the booming surf from the tip.

Bed and Bath

Lime-colored leather beds, shiny limestone surfaces and tropical accents set the tone in the spacious guestrooms. All feature private gardens leading down to the white sand beach, and they’re teeming with technology: Press a privacy button and a screen descends from the ceiling, dividing the bed and bath areas. The bathrooms are stocked with Kenzo products and feature indoor and outdoor waterfall showers, and beyond the patio doors, sunken tubs fringed by exotic greenery beg to be lounged in for hours.


Asian-inspired restaurant Flamboyant is perched on a moat and glows with floor-to-ceiling blue lamps; overlooking the pool, it serves French/Mauritian fare (curried ruby snapper, croaker fish). Beachfront La Plage is a good spot for lunch (seared gambas, catch of the day). There’s also a gym, tennis courts and a kids club on-site. Thémaé products are used in the hillside So Spa, a small but perfectly designed space where the signature treatment is acupuncture using gold needles.

Very average stay

We booked via marideal and informed we will have a baby with us. We only got the babycot in the room, no amenities, no bathtub, had to bath the baby in the sink. No shower gel for the baby, no sterilizer. The restaurant buffet was small, no cheese on the buffet. Mediocre breakfast, only one egg station. For the reputation of Sofitel, i expected it to be better. They paid a lady to do PR and go table by table to ask to post a tripadvisor review. On overall it has been very disappointing.

Awesome stay

Staff is very welcoming and attentive, tending to your every need. Great villas close to the sea. Dinner and breakfast buffet were good at le flamboyant restaurant but the best food we ate was at la plage restaurant, a la carte.

A Must!
