Mauritius Island offers some of the most adventurous activities, as well as stunning beaches for pure relaxation. The wildest and most beautiful landscapes are in the South: sandy beaches bordered by cliffs carved by waves, rocky shores, sugar cane fields as far as the eye can see, and mountainous terrains displaying magnificent panoramas. For those looking for the perfect location, Outrigger Mauritius Resort & Spa is nestled in the nature reserve of Bel Ombre and boasts splendid views of the Indian Ocean. You can either relax at the beachfront, enjoying the sparkling sea and verdant landscapes, and also discover local wildlife at historic Domaine de Bel Ombre Nature Reserve.
Style of hotel
Outrigger Resorts was founded almost 70 years ago in Waikiki, Hawaii, so they honor their unique origin not only with their decoration but also celebrating with thematic parties. Upon arrival, hosts and dancers dressed in hula-style serve Mai Tais to welcome guests, and Hawaiian Nights takes place every Saturday. But these are not the only feature that will make you feel the Aloha Spirit: stroll the cool tropical gardens and low-rise, walk-up accommodations and relax serenely in guest rooms with glorious Indian Ocean views.
What room to get?
No matter what room you go to, you will always have an outstanding view: Ocean View room offers all the comfort of a 5* accommodation, plus a private balcony; while Family Ocean View includes 1 king bed and bunk beds or rollout bed as well. On the other hand, if you choose the Beachfront cabin, you will have your private access to the beach, plus a small garden and verandah. For big families looking for Beachfront Rooms, then the Beachfront Villa is ideal: Can be connected to a beachfront ground floor room allowing a maximum of 6 adults + 6 children.
Where to eat?
Eight different dining experiences are offered at Outrigger Resort. The Resort’s signature beach bar experience, Bar Bleu, offers creative cocktails and snacks during the day by the pool, and every evening brings live creole jazz to spice up the nights. Edgewater, located at the beachfront swimming pool, offers classic dishes during the day and local Mauritian dishes at night. If you want to try the Mauritius-style tapas, then Willie’s Rum & Crab Shack is your perfect choice; However, if you are looking for international flavours, then try Mercado Market Dining.
What else should we check out?
Here at Zanzibari, find not one but 4 different pools: The 3 Rockpools are overlooking the Indian Ocean; listen to the waves crashing against the beach and watch Dhows sailing by. The infinity pool is the perfect place to relax, cool off and enjoy drinks from the poolside bar. Whether you are looking for some aromatherapy or a manicure, do not miss the chance of getting to see the cool surroundings of the spa room which overlooks the Indian Ocean. Water activities such as snorkel and scuba diving are offered in the hotel as well.
