Overview

Heritage Hotels Le Telfair is a luxury resort located along the southwest coast of Mauritius, one of several resorts that make up the larger Heritage Bel Ombre holiday destination. The complex lies within expansive parkland that’s been carefully preserved over the years, and within the resort there’s a nature reserve, a pristine beach looking out onto a lagoon, a highly rated 18-hole golf course, a lovely spa and a plantation house dating back to the 19th century.

The accommodation comprises a total of 158 rooms and suites housed across 20 large villa buildings. Some of the rooms look out onto the resort’s well-manicured gardens, while others offer direct beach access. Those on the ground floor come with their own private terrace for al fresco relaxation, while first-floor suites come with a balcony with scenic views. All suites are air conditioned and very well equipped.

There are a dozen restaurants and bars to choose from and dining venues range from vintage-style fining dining restaurants, to casual cafes and open-air beachside eateries. The cuisine is also refreshingly diverse: from hearty British fare and Pan-Asian favourites, to sumptuous Mediterranean dishes and local Mauritian specialties, there’s something to suit every palate. Cooking lessons, wine tasting sessions and private meals for couples and honeymooners are available.

There’s a great deal to do within the resort from bird watching sessions to quad biking, scenic picnics, dolphin watching boat trips and visits to the nature reserve. Those looking to get out onto the water have activities such as fishing, stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing and kayaking at their disposal; for those keen to keep active, sports such as tennis, beach football and badminton are readily available. There’s also a fully equipped fitness centre and mini ropes course.

The resort does a very good job of catering for families. There’s a club for children aged three to eleven and one for those aged twelve to seventeen. Both clubs offer a wide variety of exciting and enriching activities, including arts and crafts, trips on glass bottom boats, beach volleyball and dance classes, to name a few. There’s also a club just for babies, with fully trained nurses available to look after newborns and toddlers up to three years of age.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
