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.

One of the worst hotel experience ever. Took more than 2 hrs to get the bags in the rooms - even in the airports we get the bags in one hour. Tea time - for an eve of x-mas having 'gato piment & samousa" in paper bags Cocktails with excessive alcohol - nearly unconsumable - Barman lack respect to clients Food - no much variety - only Mauritian food. Currently hotel is working with Mauritians so it was expected to have more variety of menu rather than doll/bred epinard. Dessert basic stuffs - not even a buche de noel on the eve of x-mas. on top of that dessert was accompanied by hair or hairs -god knows- for both lunch and dinner. Even during the breakfast we got hairs on the butter. Breakfast & lunch terrible. Even at home i have more variety. One of the staff argued that the hair in the food is ours, creating a scene infront of all the clients - though the hair was found inside an "eclair" Room - mosquitoes/ water on the floor in the toilet/at night we got a tribble sound in the room as in someone was breaking through the door - it was the AC. Noise lasted for 15 minutes thereafter AC stopped. No one came to check. Had some boring x-mas music at night. Very discouraging. I got some feedback that after my complaint things(food variety) have changed during the x-mas night. However, my experience was damn bad with a x-mas turning out to be a headache with all the issues we were faced with. We were around 25 and I personally I love exploring hotels round the country and even abroad and its the first time that I had such a bad experience with a so called 5 star hotel. Read less

We checked in on 2nd Jan 2021 till 4th Jan 2021. Our check-in was a bit different from what we expected. But we were assisted by Polite and courteous Nitish. At first glance of my room, i noticed a bleach stained sofa, coarsely repaired sofa cushions. I would preferred not to have it in the room rather than putting something badly presented. I went to the bar for tea/coffee time - the variety of food served were oily cakes in grey paper bags with small pink madelaines. Okay, the madelaines were fine for tea time but i am not actually expecting oily cakes at 5* hotel. I believe the foreigners would love the traditional mauritian oily cakes. Bar Bleu never served pizza and crepe in the afternoon as mentioned on your home page. However, i have to mention the plus point of the bar- Outrigger has one of the best staff at the bar, namely Amrish, Kunal and i think Geraldine. At dinner time there were around 4 food stations and unfortunately there were a scarcity of food varieties. There were food such as fried Noodles, fish balls, crushed mixed vegetables, Mac & cheese, Margherita pizzas only. I believe that the standard of Mauritians and what you proposed did not match. I would humbly request the marketing department to focus on the best set menus to keep the 5* status. If i was a vegetarian, it would be a bad start of the year. The next day for lunch there was pasta and tomato paste on the continental side... i mean really this is the easiest food that i make when i get back from work tired. I have been to many 5* and 5* plus and 3 star hotels in Mauritius but Outrigger is supposed to be amongst the elite group. The food variety was mediocre. Let's say you dropped your products and quality because you offered low prices for Mauritians during New year and Covid 19 is throbbing but your standard of offer should never go down. You are clearly doing a good job on training your staff as there no complaints about them and they are delivering excellent service to all with very limited products. However, the management seems to have taken erratic decisions I have gone through the gallery of Outrigger and i certainly say that rooms, food varieties have been altered massively for the New Year period. I cannot express our disappointment and unfortunately i will not recommend this hotel to anyone who is expecting 5* star products from you unless same is remedied. Its high time the management decides on the business model anew if Mauritians are your target customers during this pandemic period. And do retain your courteous and polite staff, they are key Actors to keep the business running. Read less

Was a very nice experience at the hotel especially the atmosphere and cosy environment. Delicious and large variety of food. Nice staffs and friendly bar team. Big thanks to Amrish, the bar manager for preparing this tailor made cocktail. Will surely come back again! Regards, Tevin
