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 or Villa categories: 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.

Pros -Not too far from the airport -Beautiful place with lovely views -Beautiful swimming areas -Lovely staff Cons - The gym is somewhat under-equipped - They forgot to top up the daily water in our room a couple of times -The check in process is very long and takes a long time (over 20 minutes). Not great when you are exhausted after a 20 hour journey -The buffet breakfast is sub par - Staff were not very accommodating. I was staying on the ground floor and asked to be moved to a higher floor as I am a light sleeper. They said they would look into it but I did not hear anything back. I was kept up the next night by music from the pool party -Some staff are extremely helpful and friendly. However some staff at breakfast are sour and unhelpful. I had an incident where I desperately needed an item which the hotel definitely had (hairspray) but refused to provide to me for reasons I have yet to understand. In addition I had another unpleasant experience when I arrived for breakfast and was told my family has arrived and I could sit with them. I was confused as I was only travelling with one friend who was asleep. The lady pointed to a black family sitting in the dining area. When I said I was not with them she did not even apologise for her ignorance. Read less

We stayed at Outrigger for a family wedding plus an additional 3 days. The staff are very friendly and responded to our needs with our baby, our special thanks to Amrish at Bar Bleu for entertaining our 4month old daughter whilst we ate! Downside is the lack of vegetarian options and costly meals if you've not chosen all inclusive.

We traveled parents and 2 teenagers to Outriggers, and we had a lovely time. All our expectations were met. Facilities were fantastic. The staff was extremely friendly and always very helpful. We stayed in a family room, which worked perfectly. The different restaurants were of good quality and very diverse. We tried all of them. I really loved all the Indian style foods as well as the fish. The local drinks were well liked by us all, and had a lot of variety. I can recommend the all inclusive solution that is offered. It is so much better than the European versions! Even though we stayed almost 2 weeks it was never repetitive. The pool areas and the beach is just like the photos and were never overcrowded. I would love to come back one day! Thank you to the wonderful people who made our stay magical. Read less
