The Voilà Bagatelle Hotel is very well-located if you are here on business and not for the beach. It’s within 5 minutes’ drive of Phoenix and only a little further to Port Louis. In particular, it’s handy for the Mall of Mauritius – probably the best shopping centre on the island. Just turn right at back of the breakfast room and take the first left.
The staff in the hotel are generally friendly and attentive. For example, we assumed that it would be best to attack the Mall of Mauritius from the front of the building and headed off in that direction only to have some reception staff run after us to inform us that it was best to use the back entrance. The only exception regarding staff is the breakfast team, who don’t seem to be bothered about the quality of service they provide. Ordering tea or coffee was a major hassle as they hid in the kitchen and came out rarely to interact with customers. We also had to scavenge cutlery from neighbouring tables as none seemed to be set out everyday when we arrived. This is pity as breakfast could be a defining feature of the hotel (they don’t do lunch or dinner) and the room it is served in great – we particularly liked the partial ‘al fresco’ environment. There is plenty of protection from wet weather but the Breakfast Room is still sufficiently exposed to give you a feel for tropical nature.
The bedrooms are clean, quiet, adequately spacious, and it is easy to set up the internet in them. The number of power outlets in the rooms are a bit limited but tolerable. The bathroom in my room was fine although I personally don’t like overhead showers – IMHO it’s much nicer to have a hand-held showerhead as you can focus on your ‘nooks and crannies’ and easily avoid getting your hair wet if this is an issue.
One of the advantages of the hotel is that there are eateries in the Mall to suit most tastes. We particularly liked the ‘Talking Drum’ restaurant, which, contrary to its décor it has very little to do with Africa. Its seafood is superb – as fresh and clean as you will find anywhere in the world.
