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, sailing 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 had a fabulous stay here. Great service, great drinks. The plantation club was fantastic. The kids club had great activities. The resort was big enough that it never felt crowded. We also did a cooking class with the chef and it was amazing! Would def recommend! Only con was noise level. The rooms can be loud if you have loud neighbors.

This is a lovely resort with all the amenities you could want. We had an ocean view room with a nice balcony. All the customer service people were so friendly and remembered us each time we went to their restaurant, even down to our room number and what we liked to eat and drink.

24 hours on an airplane from the West coast of the US to Mauritius was worth the trip. The country and the people are beautiful...very nice. The Outrigger was our first all inclusive and I was pretty impressed. Definitely do the Plantation Club, the food and staff are amazing. The Bar Blue and Mercado were both very good as well with super friendly, fun and attentive staff. The beaches and amenities are great, with plenty to do, or just sit and enjoy the view. Only one fault. The air conditioning in our room did not work...which is pretty important in that heat. We called it in twice, with very little, if any, improvement. Sleeping at night was pretty bad, as you just had to lay on top of the sheets and sweat. Our friends next door had perfectly functioning AC, so I’m not sure why they couldn’t get ours to do the same. We should have been given a different room. Normally this would have been a deal breaker for me, but everything else was so well done, I couldn’t let it ruin the whole trip. Lastly, I recommend they pave / flag stone all the walk ways. They are currently sand, uneven, and wash out when it rains. Besides you end up tracking sand in to your room constantly. Sand belongs on the beach, not on major thoroughfares. Again, certainly not a deal breaker, but little things do matter. The location and staff made for an amazing vacation...in spite of a few hiccups. I’d definitely come back...but made sure the AC works first:-). Read less

Wonderful stay - from hotel accomodation, pool, restaurants, spa, fitness center, to room (great view, great space, and quiet). Big thanks to all staff members. Too bad we had rain 5 days out of 7! This was my second stay, and I would go for a 3rd for sure!

Very good resort. Excellent location, the private beach is definitely a plus here. Meal options is one of the major issues here. If you are pure vegetarian, better carry ready to eat food as they don't have good vegetarian options and food is not at all Indians friendly.

If you are pure vegetarian, better carry ready to eat food as they don't have good vegetarian options and food is not at all Indians friendly. Also, they can work on a bit of lighting on the street which become too dark at night. Rest everything is good. Very good setup for a beach resort. Read less
