Land-based activities also abound or take a drive along a scenic coastal road to the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Le Morne or the Black River Gorges National Park, both perfect for hiking and biking. When it comes to dining, discover the finest island-style burgers and wraps at the Chef's Truck, treat yourself to a homemade ice cream at the ice cream parlour, savour Mediterranean delights at the beachfront Playa Restaurant and enjoy buffet dishes from the open kitchen at Show Restaurant.

Tamassa - stay and the staff service overall is highly recommended especially the hospitality is brilliant. Food, activities and other things in the resort are great and could be customised for families. A special note to Chef Mahesh and his team - to not only delight us with his vegetarian food culinary skills but engage in sharing recipes and experiences. We felt very welcomed by his hospitality approach. The beauty of the beach and sea plus the warmth of service, we would definitely visit again and shall recommend to anyone who wishes to experience a homely ambience with great hospitality. Read less

Spending 14 days at Tamassa felt more like a well-deserved holiday rather than a quarantine. I was warmly welcomed by all the friendly staff, who always met our needs quickly. The room was very spacious, with the ocean-view balcony as the highlight. The food and its variety was amazing. A warm thank you for all the staff who organised a surprise for my graduation. A big and special thanks to Mr Saxena, Ms Sherna, Curtis, Yadesh, Allan, Kevin, and the chefs, who never made us feel like we were missing something and kept spoiling us. Definitely coming back with my whole family! 5 stars!! Read less
