Cleaning and cooking services are offered everyday and they will prepare the most delicious Mauritian dishes! Additionally, they will arrange boat trips so that you can go fishing or snorkeling or to lunch on a little island. Absolutely fantastic-... More

We were traveling with friends (6 adults) and we occupied 2 villas. Whole complex consists of 6 bungalows, which makes it almost private, peaceful and excellent for relaxing and the rest. But first of all Sarah hospitality and her cooking beat everything. She was also very helpful in organizing different activities (e. g. diving) and contact with local agencies. Bungalows... More

Sarah and her staff were fantastic; organizing everthing from local cooking (some of the fruits and vegetables were from the garden), fishing trips to Christmas celebrations and birthdays. It is a unique and... More

Villa Banyan offers the best of both worlds, Western comfort in a casual, island style. My fondest memories are enjoying an early morning cup of coffee in the garden, gazing at the most beautiful views of the ocean with 3 islands on the horizon. (The photos here do not do it justice). Watch the fishermen come and go in their... More
