The hotel

The Maritim Resort & Spa Mauritius lies in stunning tropical gardens along the Turtle Bay Marine Park. Many guests return again and again to enjoy its array of activities, many of which are included in your All Inclusive package, or to simply relax by the pool or on the beautiful beach. Discover the resort's wealth of dining options, from international buffet to 'feet in the sand'-style dining, Asian delicacies, and traditional cuisine. La Marée Beach Restaurant is the place for to enjoy seafood on the beach as the sun goes down. For a special treat, indulge in a meal at LaKaz Kreol, a Mauritian family-style restaurant seating just 10 people, or visit the hotel's Château Mon Désir, a colonial-style mansion overlooking the historic ruins of Balaclava and the Citron River. Visit the horses at the hotel's wonderful equestrian centre — and be sure to stop by the giant tortoise park on your way. There is also a superb spa at the hotel with lovely gardens, where you can take in the natural sounds of paradise as you relax in the tranquillity area behind the specially-made waterfall… heaven.

My wife and I were on a ten-week trip, taking in 11 different countries, and this was the second last stop for us. We had planned this as a week of relaxation, to help us wind-down before travelling home via Dubai and a three day stop there. We really couldn’t have picked a better place for chilling out than Maritim Resort & Spa. It had everything we wanted in a resort, with lots to do on the complex, which I’ll cover in this review, plus great staff, great food in a variety of restaurants, and a wonderful pool area. The grounds are absolutely massive and encompass stables, where you can book a variety of horse riding activities, ranging from beginner level (that was me) to experienced riders who can ride unaccompanied. At the stables area, you can also see several huge turtles which are many years old. There is also a Dive Centre, with a range of diving options available. In addition, there is a Spa offering a variety of treatments. In addition, you can look to book onto one of the offsite trips that are available on Mauritius. My wife and I elected to go on the catamaran trip to Ile Aux Cerfs and I also went on the Walk With Lions trip, which I’ll review separately. The food was excellent and we ate in four of the restaurants on the complex. Those were the Belle Vue buffet restaurant, where we also had lunch and breakfast every day, Le Banyan Asian fusion restaurant, La Maree beach restaurant and Les Filaos beach barbeque. For the latter three of those, booking in advance was required, though that is easliy done at Reception. The two pools are interconnected so you can swim from one through to the other, under the bridge leading to the Quarter Deck Bar. One of the pools has a swim-up bar, with a little bell you can ring so that one of the waiters will come around from the bar and take your order. Sitting at that area, enjoying an afternoon cocktail, was one of our favourite parts of the day. All in all, I had no hesitation on rating Maritim at Five Stars, as we found nothing to fault on the complex. The staff were all excellent and friendly, especially those in the Quarter Deck Bar, where afternoon tea is served from 3:30pm and they have a ‘Happy Hour’ from 5:00 – 7:00pm. I will upload photos to show as many of the areas and features as I can, especially the amazing sunsets which varied every night, depending on cloud formations. Read less

My partner (from UK) and I (Mauritian) are one of the few people lucky enough to be in Mauritius during this time of Covid 19... But my partner and his parents has been visiting the Maritim well over a decade. In the beginning of 2020, the hotel was closed for renovations... so when we had the opportunity to come and view the New changes by spending one night there on the 05th of January 2021, even though the hotel is not fully re-opened, we were so pleased to enter the hotel and find the same fantastic, warm and friendly members of staff that had looked after us in the past years. The changes are very modern but still keeping the heart of the wonderful hotel with such amazing views. The resident management (Antje) gave us room 212 to try (being one of the newly renovated rooms)... WOW!!!! Could not fault anything in room 212. Overall we highly recommend anyone to book this hotel with these fantastic new upgrades. Make a superb mauritian holiday! Once again thank you to all the team that looked after us during that stay.
