We visited as part of our 30th wedding anniversary celebrations. We'd chosen to travel in May as it was also my birthday.
Unfortunately we hit the end of an anticyclone and had 5 days of torrential rain.
It does put a dampener on your holiday when you are expecting sunshine and it isn't there. But the staff done everything to try and make our stay as pleasant as possible. The reception arranged for a taxi trip around the island and our driver, Mr Fouad was a pleasure to spend the day with, explaining lots about the island and taking us to sites we wouldn't have seen otherwise.
So what can you do when it rains and you don't want to leave the resort?? Well there is a very nice spar albeit quite expensive for treatments so you can't indulge too much, although there is packages available for bulk purchases.
Then there is the gym. It's very well equipped and if all else fails there is a games room.
When the sun does come out there are 3 lovely pools to choose from as well as a lovely beach with a variety of free water sports. You will be supplied with a snorkel fins and mask if you haven't taken your own.
The food is very good with too much to even mention, but I can assure you there will be something for every taste and lots of different things to try. The burger van is amazing for lunch.
For a change, you can visit the a la carte restaurant for lunch or book for your evening meals. I was given a special night to celebrate my birthday which was a lovely thought.
The rooms a cleaned twice daily and the staff who look after the rooms are wonderful. They keep the minibar and tea and coffee stocked frequently every day.
And what can you say about the bar staff....well they don't let you go thirsty that's for sure.
We were looked after from arriving in the reception to leaving for our early flight and given a full breakfast to see us off.
There are too many members of staff to thank and no one can be blamed for the weather.
Very nice hotel resort.

I thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Tamassa. My son had lots of fun playing on the beach. There are four pools in the hotel and its very pleasant sitting by the pool. The staff are helpful and friendly. There is a Chinese staff at reception who looks after everything for us. And there is a Chinese chef at the Show Restaurant. Very worthwhile and highly recommended!

Room tip: Beach view is fantastic

Celebrating our wedding anniversary, we arrived here as the first of three hotels booked for a two week stay. The hotel noted our WA and had decorated our room with towel sculptures and petals. There was an invitation to dine at The Playa a la carte restaurant
We were surprised to find a special personalised menu and had a divine dining experience.

The staff at this hotel are all lovely, smiling, helpful and willing.

We visited in June - its the beginning of the Mauritian winter so not so hot but as Tamassa is in the south it experiences more rain and wind then. You are even provided with an umbrella though. We suspect it might be too hot for us in the high season and the winter 27 was not too bad :)

Lux hotels evidently put a lot into staff training and customer relations.

Date of stay: June 2017

My family and I went to Tamassa for my father's birthday. We went on the all inclusive package. There's just one word to describe the hotel: FANTASTIC. The employees are kind, the drink is good, the room service is great and the food... Just fabulous. We enjoyed so much. Unfortunately, mother nature was not very kind but that was not the hotel's fault. If the weather was good, then everything would have been perfect. The activities provided by the hotel is just excellent. Tamassa is definitely the number one hotel for us so far. It is recommended for the locals and the tourist as well. In addition to all of this, the view is amazing, even if we are use to this, as locals, we could not get enough of the breathtaking environment.
Going back again for the end of year holidays for sure.
