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.

We were part of a group of wedding guests staying at this hotel in August. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. The room we had was one of the larger suites, a little dated and dark but it was big enough for a family with lots of room to move around. The resort is quite spaced out so walking to and from the main restaurant can take several minutes if you have one of the further rooms like we did. The main restaurant catered for everyone, they even had a childrens pasta station every day. Breakfast had lots of variety, as did dinner. The bar could get a little busy during busy periods but overall it had a good atmosphere. Free access to non motorised watersports was nice to break up the day. Amrish was fantastic and looked after us very well during our stay. Read less

We stayed for 10 nights in a junior suite and absolutely loved it! The location was brilliant- the south of the island is beautiful. We went snorkelling most days and went out on the canoe and pedalo. The restaurants are great. On an all inclusive package we were very well looked after and never had a bad meal. The Indonesian fish curry in the market restaurant is well worth a try! We had dinner at the plantation club and had a lobster taster menu that was amazing. There was a live 3 piece band which really made the evening one to remember. The staff were lovely, and the concierge team arranged big game fishing for us as well as a trip the nature reserve. We had a great couples massage in the spa as well, adding to the relaxation. In all, just a brilliant holiday and one we will always remember- thank you! Read less
