10 tiny pieces of luxury that will make you love Mauritius
Modern luxury is no longer about polished marble and lots of bling. Today’s luxury experiences are designed to make guests feel special. It’s about anticipating their needs before they’ve even thought of them, with a few extra touches to delight and surprise. Here’s how some of our favourite Mauritius hotels get it right…
Four Seasons at Anahita
Guests of Four Seasons at Anahita’s four, five or six bedroom residences can enjoy bubbles of bliss with one of the in-villa bath rituals. Treatments range from soothing creamy chamomile and coconut milk baths to sunburn soothers and golfer’s restoratives, so there’s something to suit every type of holidaymaker.
Heritage Le Telfair
Heritage Resorts understand that luxury is all about the little things. That’s why when you’re lying on the beach you might find someone will miraculously appear to clean your sunglasses at just the right moment.
Private services at Dinarobin Hotel Golf & Spa set the resort apart from its competitors. For guests residing in Senior Suites, a private concierge will be in contact even before their arrival in Mauritius to ensure all their needs and expectations are met.
LUX* Resorts believe that a holiday isn’t complete without ice-cream, so they created their own brand called ‘ici’. Expect a range of tropical flavours served from retro-style parlours while a warm waffle cone is baked right in front of your eyes.
Twice per week, dining at the Oberoi takes on an entirely different vibe when the beautiful Gunpowder room – an immaculately restored French colonial battery and recognised national monument – opens for dinner.
Shanti Maurice can create the perfect afternoon picnic to enjoy in the hotel’s 36 acres of tropical gardens. Simply pick your favourite shady spot and you’ll be provided with all essential picnic accessories from comfortable cushions to the all-important wine cooler.
The vast, double-height spaciousness of The Residence’s Colonial Ocean View Suites feels truly decadent. With private butler service, 24 hour in-room dining and a large private terrace with ocean views, it’ll be hard to drag yourself away.
The luxurious Spa by Clarins at Beachcomber’s Shandrani Resort & Spa is home to dozens of exotic hibiscus, frangipani and palm trees, and surrounded by a thick bamboo hedge which shelters 20 thatched Robinson Crusoe-style cabins for single and couples massages.
St. Regis Mauritius Resort
The 1904 bar at St. Regis Mauritius Resort is the ultimate in laid-back refinement, with a lighting up ceremony performed nightly by the Chief Butler, including a much-anticipated Champagne sabering ritual and tunes from the resident pianist.
Maradiva Villas Resort and Spa
If you’re a lucky guest of the Maradiva Villas Resort and Spa, then start as you mean to go on by arranging a luxury transfer in the hotel’s own spectacular white Rolls Royce Phantom.
