Overview

Beachfront retreat overlooking the Bay of Balaclava with five restaurants, tennis courts and a seafront infinity pool

The Lowdown

Mauritius offers an enticing blend of tropical scenery, culture and adventure, and this 210-room resort, set right on the beachfront on the island’s northwest coast, is perfectly placed to take advantage of its charms. The guestrooms feature dark furnishings, marble floors and eggplant throws and rugs, and each faces the Bay of Balaclava’s gorgeous white sand beach, where you can while away the afternoon at the beach bar before treating yourself to a massage or an ayuverdic treatment at the spa. The five restaurants serve Asian fusion, Indian and Mediterranean cuisine, as well as Mauritian specialties (a heady fusion of Creole, Chinese, Indian and French flavors). Active types and families are well catered to with a plethora of fun diversions including tennis courts, a seafront infinity pool and amenities for kids.

In the Area

The island’s compact size makes tip-to-toe exploration easy. Start at the bazaar in the capital, Port Louis; this bustling central market is a one-stop shop for locally made souvenirs, clothing and exotic fruits. Or if serene shopping is your thing, head instead to Le Caudan, a waterfront shopping mall full of stores hawking everything from hand-painted silks to spices. Visit the district of Pamplemousses (between Port Louis and Grand Bay) for insight into the island’s plantation history at the Sugar Museum Aventure du Sucre. Refuel at the on-site Le Fangourin restaurant and tea salon before ogling the amazing flora at the Botanical Garden, where the star attraction is the ponds with giant floating lily pads. Finally, head south to Chamarel, where you’ll witness the mesmerizing geological oddity known as “the Seven Colored Earths”: technicolor sand dunes formed by volcanoes. Cap your visit off with a rum toast at the Rhumerie de Chamarel, a beautifully situated rum distillery nearby.
