Overview

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.

  • 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.
