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.

The room was very clean and well equipped thanks to the excellent room service. Also special mention to Adarsh during the brunch on sunday, he took great care of us and was very patient and without forgetting the lady for lunch who very patiently assisted us in choosing our meal. The food was excellent for lunch, breakfast and brunch, the only problem was for diner, we didnt have a wide variety of food to choose from and food was average. But we really had a wonderful stay at Sands suite and i surely recommend this hotel.<3 Read less

Really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. Had a warm welcome from all staff. Room was clean and spacious. Excellent food and nice panoramic view of the Bay of Tamarin. Kids really enjoyed the heated swimming pool. Well equipped gym and nice Spa as well. We had a late check out and really appreciated that our room was cleaned even on our departure day.
