Veranda Palmar Beach

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

Virgin rating

The hotel

Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, leading down to a lovely 1.5km beach, the Veranda Palmar Beach is great for those seeking tranquil surrounds. There are plenty of water sports to enjoy too, including diving, sailing and fishing. For the less energetic, the golden beaches are a perfect haven for sunbathing. The smiles and generous attention of the hotel staff contribute to making this a popular choice of hotel. Families will love the Timomo Kids Club, but the activities aren't just for the little ones, adults can enjoy sega dance initiation, cooking lessons, handicraft exposure, and cinema on the beach (weather permitting).

It was my birthday and we arrived in the evening of my birthday and the staff were bright and bubbly even gave me a small birthday party. The entire time and stay was amazing , we were constantly asked if we were comfortable or needed anything absolutely friendly and very hospitable. The team even went out of their way to book me a round of golf seeing this is not a golf resort , and before I knew it I was booked and played on one of the best courses. To the entire staff at Veranda Palmer Beach hotel and spa , you guys rock and you are super stars Read less
