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.

We stayed at Le Telfair Resort for 7 days and this is our third visit. Despite the continual rain, the resort once again lived up to and exceeded our expectations. Our main reason for booking is for the golf and beach - which during this week were impossible so we had to rely on everything else the hotel offers to keep you entertained. The restaurants are wonderful and everyone went out of their way to accommodate us. The bedrooms are so relaxing and many hours were spent sitting on the patio reading and watching the surroundings. The staff are all amazing and cant do enough to make sure you have a lovely time. I didn't think it was possible to have such a lovely stay despite no golf and beach time and cant wait to return once again - although hopefully with better weather Read less

This wellness resort is unlike others in the sense that it feels absolutely natural; the resort blends with its tropical surroundings in an absolutely enchanting way. During a stay here you will discover how a great number of seemingly minor details all contribute to the excellence of this resort. The interior is tastefully decorated and the style of the hotel is consistent in all places. The breakfast buffet is absolutely phenomenal. We took great pleasure in enjoying the many activities and facilities such as various watersports, wellness, rum tasting and more offered by the hotel free of charge. Last but not least, the very kind and welcoming staff provided an impeccable service. Read less

The staff were all super-friendly and willing to go the extra mile. We are Kosher travelers with special dietary requests and the staff could not have been more accommodating than they were.
