It was busy times with many clients but we had a good time. The garden and surrounding is well maintained. During both visit we met great kitchen and service team (Chef Mahesh, Vinesh, Rose, Harjit, Nehal). Chef Mahesh even served a special dessert which he remembered from my last visit. Top sa!!

Well maybe because we took a day package and were not really guests staying at the hotel that we got treated a bit like outcast? Or it was so busy? Still.. Anyway for me, I had issues at the gate where the security and the front end could not liaise or find the booking, not sure but in the end i got in. The buffet food was okay. Some lacked seasoning. The burger at the truck was nice though, but the chef standing outside seemed a bit cocky.. like about to snap.. maybe an overdose of pride does that to some. But also, it's hectic, the life of a chef. Tiredness and all. So i understood. Drinks were great! Some personnels were really nice, especially the Indians. The infrastructure, vibe and ambiance, really good. It was okay, not that memorable, but we all deserve a second chance. I would still recommend Tamassa because I'm sure others will have a better and greater experience. Read less

We chose the Tamassa, since we read a lot about the remote location, the extraordinary staff and the amazing beach, at which the resort is located. All the positive reviews are true! After the very warm and nice greeting by Ismena for us as german guests, we were lead to our room, which was already filled with nice honeymoon-related decoration. A very nice welcome after the long trip! The whole resort is very clean and the staff is the friendliest that we ever met in our travels. A special thank you goes to our maid Nappmah, who always surprised us with nice new animals made out of towels and our waiter Ashlen, who even decorated our table especially for our last night in the Tamassa. Also Rajesh and Sem were extraordinary good and friendly waiters and also nice people to have a chat with! Overall we want to say, that the friendliness in the Tamassa never seemed superficial and the whole staff is very motivated, friendly and helpful to all guests. We plan to return someday to the paradise, that we encountered on Mauritius and hope to see all the people again in this wonderful resort! Thank you very much for making our honeymoon so perfect!

I can truly say that Tamassa is one of the best hotels in the south of the country. A welcoming staff and a perfect atmosphere prevails there. The food is excellent, especially the delicious varieties of burgers from the truck. A stay there is highly recommended. Special thanks to Mr Nishad who is always at the disposal of the clients.
