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.

Initially we booked the hotel with a diminutive group of 8 families for two days but we stayed for three days .WHY? We were impressed by the cleanliness of the rooms ,excellent service ,friendly staffs, amazing environment and we should have stayed more but unfortunately because of professional obligations. Restaurants... We have a very bad experience at le Gin' ja for the Gala dinner but i will not go through the details. Very good experience at the c beach club ,wonderful staff and the food was absolutely scrumptious thank to Dominique very active Man. Improvements should be made at Le Palmier Restaurant, we have been waiting for more than one hour to be served and finally we had to leave because we had two seniors with us who were tired of waiting. The cavendish Bar appealing presentation of cocktails and we were ecstatic about the quality of service . Annabella's the name reflects beauty by itself lavish buffet and good service. We would like to thanks Yannick for the personal assistance and excellent service . ALSO So impressed by the professionalism and customer care of Jimmy , each hotel should take the example. Thank you again for contributing to the Lam's family cherished memories. Read less
