Virgin Holidays View
Named after famous naturalist, Charles Telfair, this elegant and refined 5-star hotel is a member of the ‘Small Luxury Hotels of the World’. Infused with the charm of its colonial sugar plantation past, the hotel occupies a delightful setting, in a magnificent tropical garden through which the Citronniers River flows. Rooms are very spacious indeed, decorated in 19th century style but with an impressive range of mod cons and floor to ceiling windows making the most of stunning views. The Seven Colours Spa Millesime Collection offers a serene haven for those in need of pampering with treatments galore to harmonise body, mind and energy. There are also 2 lovely swimming pools (1 heated) to lounge by, water sports in abundance and an ATP tennis school with lessons available. Alternatively, head to the nearby championship golf course with unlimited free green fees for all guests. Younger members of the family will love the Timomo Kids Club which also boasts its very own swimming pool. For older kids, there’s the Activity Centre, a great place to mingle with new friends, learn how to play a local musical instrument or get involved in a tennis tournament. A wonderful selection of restaurants at the Heritage includes Annabella’s on the banks of the river with an open and interactive show-kitchen. Gin’Ja serves Pan Asian cuisine on the beach or treat yourself to a meal at Le Chateau de Bel Ombre, an enchanting 19th century Manor house in a timeless setting.
