Outrigger Beach Resort Mauritius

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

Virgin rating

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 for those guests booked in a suite: 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.

Had a very nice stay at the hotel. The welcoming at the reception was very good. Ajmal and Jenita from the reception took good care of us and they were very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. The food was execllent with a large varieties at the main restaurant. The dessert corner also was vast. Vashil, Shafiy and Rohan from the Mercado restaurant were very friendly and took good care of us. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel has been well maintained. The only dissatisfying thing was that we had to wait for long to order our drinks during lunch time at the Mercado restaurant. But on overall, we had a wonderful stay and would be happy to come back.

From checkin to checkout and everything in between I can find no fault. Megha was there to make us feel at home when we arrived and she was there to wish us good bye with her friendly smile and conversation. What sets Outrigger apart from so many other Mauritius hotels is her food. As an expat in Mauritius we have the benefit of going to Mauritius hotels for a weekend without the hassle of long distance travel. We therefore have lots of comparisons and I can happily say that the food is second to none. The variety is amazing but it’s the taste and flavors that sets the hotel apart. The sushi must be one of the best on the island and the executive sous-chef can feel very proud of what he has accomplished. The breakfast waffles and pancakes drew long queues as they were that good. Congratulations to the whole chef team for producing such tasty food at every meal. Another bonus is the family rooms. They sleep 4 with a separate room for the children. Now you don’t have to book two rooms and that works out to a large saving. Hands down, there is no better for value for money. Beautiful sea views, stylish swimming pools, great service and above all, the food for the price that we paid for All-Inclusive. I feel I was undercharged. Read less

May 14, 2022 jagveerl2022

That's the worst hotel ever around the island. It is not deserved to be called a 5 Star hotel. None of the staffs are friendly and they don't even greet while you Check-in. The room is aweful and disgusting. This should be definitely be improved. The food is terrible and is of poor quality.
