Tamassa is one of the luxury resort in Mauritius. Stayed in this property for 7 days. I read through the reviews before booking this resort. I must totally agree that this Resort really deserves 5 Star in all categories. The comfort and luxury was taken to a different level by the resort staffs. The service provided by staffs was too too good. The property has 3 restaurants. The food at all the three places was damn good. The buffet was widespread with well chosen menu/ dishes for each day. The preparation, ambiance, service at the dining place calls for a special applause.The team leaded by Chef Mahesh is too good.

The Trip and stay was simply awesome. We stayed in Tamassa for 7 days and the stay & experience was too good. The service provided by the Resort Staffs was exceptionally good. Be it Reception area, Pool side, Restaurants wherever you go in the resort premises, you will always find staffs with a warm welcoming smile and always ready to help. The staffs always look forward to help their guest and they keep checking our needs. Room service staffs visited the room to ensure we are comfortable and have all basic things like beach towel, bath towels etc are replaced. We were on halfboard and had both Breakfast and Dinner buffet included. The restaurant ambiance was classic, the staffs and service was yet again awesome and food was widespread. Special thanks to Chef Mahesh for being a great host and for the lovely yummy special dessert. Really want to applaud him and his team. Looking forward to visiting Tamassa to have another great experience. Read less
