Outrigger Beach Resort Mauritius

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

On a traditional 17th-century Mauritian sugar cane plantation, Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort boasts exquisite Ocean views from every guest room. Life here is pretty laid-back — from no dress code to sublime sunsets. Look deeper and you'll find cultural and historic gems on your white sand-dusted doorstep, including the remains of an old sugar mill. The large stretch of beach which borders the resort has cabanas aplenty and snorkelling, windsurfing, stand-up paddles and kayaking for those more active moments. Back on dry land you'll find some sublime areas to kick back and relax. During the day, The Plantation Club is a lounge with a private pool and outdoor area, exclusively for guests staying in Suites: enjoy a refined à la carte breakfast with sparkling wine, all-day non-alcoholic beverages and a daily cocktail hour. This outlet adds a touch of French colonial class to an already delectable array of bar and dining options. The Club is open to all guests for dinner (upon reservation) and is the island's first fine dining restaurant offering Modern Creole Gastronomy. Mercado Restaurant is another 'must experience' with interactive cooking displays, whilst Edgewater, next to the beachfront pool, offers light lunches and ice cream by day and local dishes, contemporary Eurasian-inspired cuisine, and wine pairings in the evening.

My Fiancé and I are coming to the end of our 10 night stay here. We’ve stayed in resorts in Mexico, Jamaica and Cuba, none of which measure up to the service we have received at the Outrigger. The customer service and kindness were have received is unlike nothing we have ever received. It’s actually difficult to express how wonderful each and every staff member has been. We would like to give a special mention to these people who truly are a credit to the Outrigger team- Ashley, Shabnam, Amrich, Hans (checked in everyday to ask how we were and always a smile on his face), Engelique, Sandrine (wonderful service- such a lovely lady), Didier (amazing guy), Arvesh, Yoven, Kunal (incredible), Xavier, Pravisha, Ashish. Lastly a special mention for Rhunga- what a legend… he found us each day to ask if we were having a good time and if there was anything he could do. Thanks Rhunga for the roti! We stayed in room 3005. It could do with a refresh as it’s starting to look a bit tired- maybe spruce up the entrance way a bit. Overall we have had an incredible holiday. Food has been fabulous, but it really has been the staff who have made it so special for us. We will certainly be back and are sad to be leaving! Mr and Mrs Smith Read less

We loved our stay at the Outrigger! The staff was really attentive and catered to all our needs - especially Sharon at the reception. Our room was super spacious and directly at the ocean- wow! We hope to be able to come again soon.

Had an amazing holiday in Outrigger resort! My proposal to my girlfriend on the balcony of our suite was with a beautiful view over the beach & sunset. The upgrade to the suite came with a jacuzzi spa and access to the plantation club who did amazing breakfast & afternoon tea! Keven was very helpful everyday and catered to all our needs. Allan was an absolute gem and made our holiday extra special especially when we had to rearrange our Tapas date. The tapas was absolutely fantastic as we had about 15 small plates in total and was great value. All the staff we met, particularly at the plantation club, blu bar and edgewater restaurant were all lovely and so friendly and welcoming. Read less
