Ambre

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

In a tropical location, just steps from a beautiful stretch of beach, Ambre offers chic, elegant accommodation in a serene atmosphere. While away lazy days beside the sea or explore underwater in the lagoon, bursting with colourful marine life. There are water sports down at the beach including windsurfing, kayaking and sailing. Daily entertainment takes place around the pool and at night, the pace kicks up a notch with DJs and live music. In a quiet corner of the hotel is the Spa, a soothing retreat with hammam, sauna and Jacuzzi — enjoy a treatment whilst listening to the ocean gently lap the shores. When it comes to dining, you’re spoiled for choice. There’s Indigo with its interactive buffet stations featuring Indian, Chinese and Creole specialities as well as international favourites. Dolce Vita is an authentic Italian-style trattoria, with homemade antipasti, pizzas and grill specialities — or, for a supplement, you can dine at La Plage beach restaurant with its cool feet-in-the-sand attitude. Coral Bar is another favourite meeting place and, if you’ve still energy to spare, there’s a nightclub open until the early hours.
