Veranda Pointe aux Biches

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

With an informal and tropical atmosphere and set on one of the most beautiful coastlines in Mauritius, this is your chance to live like Robinson Crusoe, in complete harmony with your surrounds. Veranda Pointe aux Biches is a boutique hotel with two distinct sections — one catering for families and the other an adult-only section, with its own à la carte restaurant, pool and bar. Rooms are furnished in natural, earthy tones to ensure supreme relaxation and have a terrace or balcony to admire the stunning views. Dedicated family rooms with an adjoining room for the children, give this hotel even more versatility. Adults and children alike will love the great selection of all inclusive amenities and the swimming pools — the main pool, a kids' pool at the kids' club and an adults-only infinity pool located at the Sandy Lane section of the hotel. Senses Restaurant overlooks the sea and coral reef and serves Mauritian specialities buffet-style, whilst Foot Loose Bar features an al-fresco deck overlooking the lagoon and is perfect for pre- and post-dinner drinks.

We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time at the Veranda Pointe aux Biches. The hotel and it's little beach are charming, the staff is extremely warm and caring, the food was excellent. A special thank you to Josie for her smile and great service at the restaurant. And thank you to Mélanie at the Spa for a great massage and lovely time overall. Having stayed at bigger hotels as well, we can only recommend the Veranda because guests are really made to feel special and even when the hotel is full it didn't feel busy and there were always free spots on the beach or the restaurant. The barefoot bliss concept is really wonderful and allows you to truly disconnect! Read less

A nice hotel with a beach set in a man made cove which means you can swim, snorkel or canoe without the currents of the sea. Always plenty of sunbeds on the beach or around the pool. If you are looking to book any trips please see Bradley on the beach, much better and cheaper than the reps! We stayed in the normal part of the hotel not Sandy Lane… Read more
A nice hotel with a beach set in a man made cove which means you can swim, snorkel or canoe without the currents of the sea. Always plenty of sunbeds on the beach or around the pool. If you are looking to book any trips please see Bradley on the beach, much better and cheaper than the reps! We stayed in the normal part of the hotel not Sandy Lane although we had a look around there and i don't think it's worth paying the extra to be there. The rooms are comfortable with an excellent shower, probably the best one i've ever had. Very clean, with a mini bar and water every day. The reception and beach staff are lovely and very helpful. But i'm sad to say the Bar staff are not very engaging unless you speak French, hopefully they will improve once noted. We were all inclusive but although breakfast was ok the rest of the food was very limited in choice and not the standard i would of expected from this type of hotel, so we ate out for most of our holiday. Overall a nice clean hotel in an ideal position to visit the rest of the island. Read less

We spent more than a week there. That was amazing. Relax time, we chose the adult only area. That was worth it. We had a privilege room and everyday a new towels draw on our bed made by the fabulous housekeeping team. We had a little trouble during our stay. We stayed without electricity during some time, the reception team sent straight away the maintenance. For the inconvenience, we received apologies from everyone. In particular the maid, ( i am sorry to didn’t take her name. ) Then we received also a complementary bottle of sparking peach wine without alcool because my partner is pregnant. Another particular attention from them. + couple massage. We will definitely come back there. Read less

The hotel staff was extremely friendly from the reception to room service and the staff in the restaurants etc. The area of the swimming pool was clean and no over crowding and kid friendly too... Every day plenty of varies activities were organized in the swimming pool and in the beach. The restaurant offered a great display and variety of eats catering to the needs of all ages. The staff especially Muzzamil and Avish were very helpful in making the guests comfortable. Rana is a super expert how to make wonderful cocktails in the bar. Jeeva is a person who smiles every day and let feel you in the paradise. Thank you for everybody that made our holidays unforgettable. The Seven Colours spa had an amazing spa session. Josia was so good with the massages and explained everything in detail. Internet connection was intermittent but the hotel staff always helped to solve this problem. Read less
