The hotel

Infused with the charm of its sugar plantation past, this refined hotel retains its colonial style. A member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the hotel occupies a delightful setting in the Bel Ombre nature reserve, in a tropical garden through which the Citronniers River flows. Suites are spacious, decorated in 19th-century style but with an impressive range of amenities and a private butler at your service. The Seven Colours Spa is a serene haven, with treatments to harmonise body, mind and energy. There are two lovely pools, with access to an additional pool at C Beach Club, water sports in abundance and a nearby championship golf course. Guests have access to 12 restaurants and eight bars across the Domaine de Bel Ombre — there's a wonderful selection of dining at Heritage Le Telfair, including Annabella’s on the banks of the river with an interactive show-kitchen, and Gin’Ja serving Pan Asian cuisine on the beach. Treat yourself to a meal at Le Chateau de Bel Ombre, an enchanting 19th-century manor house, or head to the trendy lifestyle hotspot, C Beach Club.

It is a challenge in itself to bring a toddler on your honeymoon... to a 5* resort but we couldn’t have felt more relaxed, at home and at ease during our 10 day stay here thanks to the staff (and patience of other guests). Thank you to Anouska for being a wonderful host, particularly making our arrival so seamless and thank you to Willim (recommended driver and tour guide). This is a great location in a beautiful part of the country. Our room was fresh, stylish, modern, clean and cosy. The resort atmosphere is very chilled and relaxed. The best all inclusive hotel/resort we’ve been to for friendliness and food. Thank you Telfair Heritage and Mauritius for having us! Read less

Had excellent 10 day stay over half term with 9&17yo boys. Food excellent Annabellas staff are an asset to resort Rovine heads a wonderful team (Ashley, Doraline, Visnoo to name a few of many). Had excellent wine tasting with Amar too, highly recommend that! Beach and especially the small pool the children frequent is top notch and the gardens are pretty special. Plenty of excursions to chose from, particularly enjoyed quad biking in the reserve and waterfall swimming! If sitting by pool and being fed and watered is your thing then look no further, special mention to ranjeev who had canny knack of knowing and delivering what we wanted before we did! Finally the concept of your own host was new to us and ours being Ashish organised everything, nothing too much trouble and a great credit to the establishment, he seemed to be everywhere! So if you want service without the stuck up feel, quality food and stunning surroundings then you can’t go too far wrong coming here. Also the pancake/ice cream kiosk is great idea especially for the younger ones really simple but excellent touch. We did the Gourmet Bliss all-inc and definitely worth it and good value assuming you stay on site most of holiday, some logger reds on the GB wine list would help by the way, personal opinion there.

Beautiful coastal gardens settings. Excellent selection of restaurants. Long sandy beach with great water sports facilities including kite surfing in warm seas. Comfortable beds in very well proportioned en suite rooms. Friendly, helpful welcoming staff. Super golf course on site. The only down side is the expense. On half board we spent an additional £500. Breakfasts were so good there was no need to eat lunch before evening meals. Remember to book restaurants in advance by at least 24 hours. The attentive guest relations staff well help you with anything and make a point of touching base with you on an at least daily basis. Read less
