This lively and vibrant all-inclusive 4* resort is located along the southwest coast of Mauritius in the Bel Ombre area. Set amidst tropical gardens right by the beach, with a pretty backdrop of mountains with slopes punctuated by sugarcane fields, it’s a lovely getaway for some serious rest and relaxation. The colourful décor reflects the resort’s upbeat character while staying true to its eco-friendly principles. There are no fewer than three swimming pools, a fitness centre, spa and plenty of water sports and land based activities such as golf and tennis to enjoy,

The 214 rooms are chic and stylish, with splashes of bright, eye-catching colours throughout and they come in four different categories including Standard Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Deluxe Family Rooms and Beach Rooms, which have direct access to the sandy shore and stunning views of the Indian Ocean. All rooms are air conditioned and come with amenities such as a minibar, a satellite TV and an iPod docking station. En-suite bathrooms provide plenty of space and have a separate bathtub and shower.

There’s a diverse line-up of dining experiences to try out. Show is the resort’s main restaurant where you can watch the energetic chefs preparing international dishes at open cooking stations. Playa is a casual, open air Mediterranean restaurant, while Truck is quite literally a charming truck set in the sand offering lighter bites with distinctive Mauritian touches. The resort also has several bars serving all manner of alcoholic and soft drinks. Room service is readily available, with the option to order drinks and light bites to enjoy by the pool or out on the beach as well.

Those looking to explore the ocean can go snorkelling, kite surfing, windsurfing or diving. Land based activities include golf, tennis or bocce ball, leisurely cycling or even giant chess! The resort has three swimming pools, two of which are right by the beach, with the third further inland. There’s a well-equipped fitness centre with lots of state-of-the-art facilities and there are professional trainers on hand to devise personalised workout programmes. The LUX* ME spa encourages guests to customise their own treatments and pampering sessions.

For younger children, there’s the kids club PLAY, while for teenagers there’s Studio 17. Both of these clubs are designed to showcase the benefits of island living and offer lots of worthwhile, enriching activities. Treasure hunts, language classes, arts and crafts and dance sessions are among the many things youngsters can get involved in.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
