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 at the Sands Suites Resort & Spa one month ago (22/08/2020) for the wedding of Sharon & Désiré. As soon as we entered the hotel premises, we were overwhelmed by the warm welcome from the staff. The service was indeed more than expected. The staff was always ready to help and even suggested us to take part in different activities, which we did even if we were not used to some of them (Didier from the 'Groupe d'Animation' thank you for the sega we shared on the beach). It was part of our contribution to say THANK YOU to all of you. The wedding was a great success, plenty of good food and smiling personel. Awsome brunch on Sunday, really really we had a lot of fun. The room is very spacious, we did feel comfortable while getting ready for the evening, and the view from the terrace just magnificent. In fact, we liked everything, from the moment we set our feet into the hotel till we left and we will highly recommend the hotel to our families & friends. And on top of all, we will definitely book another week end soon. Read less

I stayed at Sands on a full board basis for the weekend with my family. We were welcomed warmly and shown to the reception on arrival. Aartee made sure our check-in went on smoothly, and our queries answered. She then showed us to our respective rooms and was thorough with all the facilities offered. The rooms were luxurious and comfy. The view from the hotel, included that of the Tamarin Bay and mountain, and Le Morne moutain as well the Black River Mountain ranges. It was simply breathtaking. The infinity pool was heated and big enough to accommodate many guests simultaneously. All the meals offered (lunch, dinner, breakfast and brunch), were in wide varieties. Quality of the food was unquestionably high. The entertainment team kept the guests busy, a small shoutout to Mr Aminel for his enthusiasm and positive vibes. Shisha was offered at an extra charge, and was very much up to expectations. The spa experience was amazing, from the welcome to the sauna/hammam, and the massage. Above all, the hospitality shown by every staff of Sands made the whole difference and was highly appreciated. Their willingness to make each and every guests feel comfortable and taken care of, up to the tiniest details, makes this experience a pure bliss. Read less
