Overview

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.

Beyond

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.

So Excellent.

Not satisfied with the options provided by our travel agent, we decided to do the research our selves and were so glad we did, otherwise we would have missed out on this great hotel. Everything was just perfect, from the moment we arrived, where we were greeted by Pradeep at the welcome area. We were taken to our room (Lushury Room 211), where check-in was done swiftly, in comfort of the room. The room itself was spacious and beautiful. There is an outdoor shower and an out-door relaxation tub. The hotel grounds and beach area is well maintained, with plenty of relaxation loungers. We had dinner at the Flamboyant restaurant. Meals was well presented and delicious. Breakfast was equally impressive and tasteful. There was freshly sliced fruit in our room, upon our return from a day excursion, to which we received a note on top of our safe, advising we'd left it open, they closed it on our behalf and we can obtain a secure unlock code from guest services. Last but not least, on our last night, turn-down was done with starry night light. We would like to give a special mention to Lachmi and Priya, from guest services, AJ from guest relations & experiences and Dipika from Flamboyant restaurant. A VERY special thanks goes to Girish at the bar. He makes the most amazing cocktails I've ever had. I had every mojito on the cocktails menu, as well as a few other cocktails. This was an amazing holiday, thanks to everyone, who is so friendly, upbeat and helpful at So Sofitel. If we could award your friendliness and services with 6 stars, we would!

Really loved staying at So Sofitel. The check-in procedures were unique and speedy as I was driven straight from the car park to my room in the hotel's buggy car, without going through reception. Very calm and quiet atmosphere. The breakfast and dinner buffet were really nice, with a good choice to choose from. A la Carte lunch was excellent! Staff were very nice and friendly. Room was clean and spacious. This is one hotel I would definitely love to go back to. Thank you for the complimentary late check-out!
