We booked this hotel for our honeymoon stay in Mauritius based on its rating on TripAdvisor. It’s a fantastic hotel.
It’s a little far from the main city, however taxis are available just outside the hotel. There is also a possibility to rent a motor bike and ride to the city. We were on our honeymoon so did not explore the public transport option.
The hotel room was very comfortable and rooms have huge & lovely décor …we especially liked the colors used in room and lamp shades. The view from our window was also very beautiful a never ending ocean right across the balcony. The bathrooms are spacious and the toiletries used are good and the sauna room provided separately under the sky is also quite exotic.
The service was good and there was once when we saw a big lizard in the room and the room service staff caught it and threw it outside.
We were promised to get fruit basket and drinks on arrival, however due to lot of guests in hotel, they forgot about it and we had to ask for it multiple times. They did give us these pleasantries finally but it was on last day when we were about to leave.
The food was really good as there were lot of options, even for vegetarians.
I will definitely visit the hotel again and would recommend to friends.
