We’ve not long returned from a 10 night stay at the Tamassa for our family holiday! We honestly couldn’t fault the hotel at all, from the amazing food, to the fabulous hard working staff, beautiful beach, the BEST burger truck and the BEST kids club we’ve ever come across! At the Tamassa you really are made to feel welcome and that nothing is too much trouble. The staff really go out of their way to make sure everything is to your liking - special mention to Leena and Mr Ram who spoke to us regularly, checking everything was ok for us and our daughter. This is the first hotel we’ve stayed in where ‘all inclusive’ has also included the mini bar in your room and room service (you only pay a tray fee, the food is part of your all inclusive), the water sports, such as canoes, paddle boards and glass bottom boat are also all included, which we feel is a really nice touch. It’s also the first hotel where we’ve had the cleaners in twice a day, they really do an amazing job at keeping everything clean and tidy! The hotel is beautifully kept and the staff work tirelessly to keep the grounds looking fabulous. If we return to Mauritius again then we would, without a doubt, be returning to Tamassa! Read less

It was an Awesome beyond Awesome experience staying at Tamassa Resort, Bel Ombre. Right from arrival at the hotel till the last minute, it was a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. The staff, the facilities, the ambience, the location is all top class and it was actually difficult to pull away from the luxury. The place is actually more beautiful than even the pics and videos posted. The staff is exceptionally friendly and cooperative. They attended to all our requests immediately and even extended our stay by a few hours to suit our flight timings without batting an eyelid....it was SUPERB to be treated so well. Must make a special mention of MR NISHAD who went out of his way to be helpful and look after us. An incident where I felt I had left the safe open while out was very very professionally handled( thankfully, it wasnt open). The food spread was awesome and we just couldnt eat enough!! A very special thank to CHEF HARJEET who was extremely courteous and treated us to his best dishes while explaining the ingredients as well as the best selections of each day. Made us really feel at home with his charm and friendly approach.... Am bound to go back at the first available opportunity and would stay at Tamassa. STRONGLY RECOMMEND to anyone going there to keep at least ONE FULL day for enjoying the facilities at the hotel .The rooms were exquisitely furnished and very comfy to say the least. The live band was lovely and the famous BURGER TRUCK lived upto its reputation. STRONGLY RECOMMEND Read less

An amazing experience (part of group) begins straight from the entrance continues to each corner of Tamassa. Love their each corner which has big chess board, hammock, wish tree and many super things. Be it beaches, rooms, location or food (the star) all are truly delightful. People of Mauritius are truly an example of pure heart of gold. The hospitality of each person was WOW. However some were real gem - The Head Chef Mahesh Prabhu. You cannot miss him at the main restaurant and cannot be double happy (in weight also bcoz of great food) after meeting him. Already missing the Masterchef Food. Vikram at Main restaurant and his super service. Kevin at the reception for his sweetness and kindness. Overall a great hotel for any occasion. Don't know why they are 4star as it is plus 5star experience. Read less
