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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
