Sands Suites Resort & Spa

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Nestled on the beautiful beach of Flic en Flac and surrounded by landscaped tropical gardens, this relaxed resort has a welcoming Mauritian atmosphere. The outlook across the lagoon and the bay of Tamarin, with Le Morne Mountain in the distance, is impressive. Being on the west coast of Mauritius, you'll also be spoilt by amazing sunsets. The beach here is bounded by two reefs, an inner one that gives the hotel's swimming beach privacy and an outer reef where there’s a selection of complimentary water sports on offer. Enjoy the translucent, calm lagoon and keep a watch from the terrace for the dolphins that come into the bay. When it comes to dining, there's the main Tamarind Terrace restaurant, the intimate Pink Peppercorn on the beach terrace, and Spices, with its refined indoor dining room or more casual outdoor terrace. It's clear to see why this resort has a high volume of repeat guests.

We were really overwhelmed with the environment, the service and the warm welcome of Brenda at the reception. She gave us a detailed description of all the services provided by the hotel, with a pleasant smile. She even walked around the table during breakfast to have a chit chat with the guests which we believe was a great add-on to the service. Thump up for the excellent customer service approach. The room was superb, modern, spacious and nicely decorated with all necessary amenities.Providing late check-out was so awesome. Hats off for Didier, of the entertainment Team. He provided a coaching for petang and Flechette. We had a smashing time. We would like to return. The hotel had the WOW factor. From room 126 & 231 😍 Read less
