From the moment our plane started to descend into Mauritius airport and I saw the views I just knew I was in love with this beautiful place. Our hotel was the perfect haven of peace that we were so in need of. Our room was everything we needed too. A bath for me, a shower for my partner. A bed... More

Came here for our honeymoon in October 2016. Overall we really, really enjoyed it. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and very well maintained. Just big enough to feel like there's space to walk around, but definitely not too big like some other reviewers said. It only takes 5-10 minutes to get anywhere you want to go within the grounds.

Ive had the opportunity to get a Deluxe Ocean View Room that was upgraded to next highest level room for free. The wide open spaces and pool area speak for themselves. The beach area is quite nicely arranged.
