Tamassa is a live couple friendly beautiful resort on the beachside. We had a great time with such friendly resort staff who takes care of anything and everything. The “Show” restaurant which is the main restaurant provides a wide variety of food with the cuisine being changed everyday. The Head Chef Mahesh was very keen in delivering tasty Indian dishes and attending everyone personally which made the trip even more awesome. Lot of beach activities like Scuba etc provided by the resort was much better than the one provided by travel agents. Studio 17 keeps you engaged throughout the day and the WishTree was unique experience. Also you have the Playa restaurant by the beach gives lovely ambience. Altogether Tamassa made our trip a memorable one. Read less

We absolutely loved our stay here. Buffet at breakfast and dinner had a really good selection. A la carte restaurant was also good. The biggest must is the burger van for lunch. 👌🏽 I need to say a massive big up to a few members of staff who were exceptional. Johnathon - Works at the health and fitness centre. He took us on a bike ride to a vantage point outside of bel Ombre (which is free from the hotel) Johnathon then took us on a 6 hour bike ride (£20 per person) to Le Morne, which included a 2hr trek. He does this trip 1, 2 even 3 times per week. Such a nice genuine person. 👍🏽 Kestrel- Works down at the beach serving drinks. He’s on his feet from morning until night, non stop!! He’s good with all the guests! Ask him to make you a fresh lemonade!!! 👌🏽 Sam - Sam works in the bar at the main pool most of the time but sometimes is down at the beach bar also. Such a very nice, caring young man with a good sense of humour. We will most definitely be back in the near future. Read less
