My wife, son (almost 3) and I are just back from 15 days at the Heritage The Villas.
Short (conclusion) :
Villa at Heritage was an excellent choice and experience, where we had good time. It is excellent value for money and we will surely come back.
The plot :
We wanted to stay within a resort with many facilities such as golf, spa, Kid Club..., while having lot of room, high level of comfort and privacy.
The choice of the Villas in Heritage Bel Ombre, was simply perfect.
As our third trip to Mauritius, it is important to mention that the Mauritian people are one of a kind on earth, with their natural kindness, zen and relax attitude with excellent efficiency.
All the employees at Heritage were very kind and helpful.
The "Heritage" site :
Beautiful Location, between the sea and a very neat Golf Resorts with around 130 villas, all very well designed with good privacy. Gardens and vegetation are luxuriant, a true delight for your eyes.
As Villa Resident you have access to all the facilities of the Telfair and Hawali Heritage, which is so convenient if you want some "action"...
A golf cart is provided with the villa to reach all the hotels and facilities around within 5 to 7 minutes.
A Beach Club mostly designed for villa residents with a bar, two restaurants, a pool for all ages and all the water sports you can imagine.
The Telfair Hotel in a pure British style and the Hawali Hotel, which is to my point of view more suitable if you have kids.
The Villas :
On this point i may be not very fair :o) as we have, very kindly, been upgraded from a 2 bedrooms to a 4 bedrooms villas.
However, as i have visited 6 different type of villas, this part of the review is somehow objective...
They all have a pool, large enough to get cool and have fun with family, but do not expect to swim, surrounded by very large terraces and covered patios where you can have a drink, dinner and relax all day long.
They are all decorated with lot of taste, you really feel like home, all the rooms have their own bathroom, AirCon, Cable TV. Beds and pillows are really comfortable.
Living room comes with 5.1 Audio Surround System, our villa also had an outdoor audio system for Apple devices...
Kitchen are perfectly equipped and very spacious.
The maids are doing a tremendous job, every day the villa was fully cleaned from bottom to top.
They provide an in room service for the villas, and they can arrange almost any special demand you can imagine, and i would like to especially thanks the General Manager M. Dave, which has been so kind and imaginative in order to organize my wife's anniversary...
To be improved in the Villas:
- There is not yet a 24/7 room service for food as you would expect in a 5* hotel. This would be so convenient for lazy clients like us, when we feel so comfy at home and do not want to go to a restaurant or cook. (you can have a chef in the villa but this needs to be organize 24H in advance.)
Having to the possibility to be delivered, within an hour in the villa, even really simple food such as club sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, sushis... would be really a must.
- A few equipments where out of order when we arrived, they fixed it very fast with a very good discretion, but maybe they should need to put in place a "check list test" before renting any villa.
The Golf :
From back tee, a tough & challenging course with beautiful scenery.
Beware the greens they are very firm, and it is difficult to stop the ball over the 8 or 7 iron.
Golf carts with GPS are provided if you want to.
Kids Club :
The 2 kids clubs are absolutely perfect, many activities and adventures are designed for you kids, they are both very well equipped (games, pool for kids...). Our preference goes to the one at the Telfair, with absolute kindness of the baby sitters.
Fitness & Sports:
Only visited the one at the Telfair, which is clean, in a nice location and well furnished.
We mostly had dinner at the C Beach, food is good and simple.
We also tried the Japanese restaurant at Telfair, very nice location, most of the reviews
described the food as amazing, i would not go so far, but it was fine.
Spa (My wife) :
At the Telfair, products are very good, the treatments were fine, but the location and some views from windows needs to be improved. (AirCon was a bit too strong, according to the fact that we are mostly naked in a Spa :o)
To conclude, The Villas at Heritage are very, very nice.
Between the solution of renting two or three rooms in a hotel or renting a Villa, there is not to hesitate.
We had wonderful time, it is excellent value for money and we will surely come back.
