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.

My wife arrived at the Veranda Pointe Aux Biches hotel & spa on the 16th January 2021 and the place is just wonderful. The reception staffs are very helpful especially Mr Julio, who is very kind and polite. He’s always there and solves anything he can, instantly. A big thanks to Natasha, Christel, Dora for their lovely assistance as well. My wife was very lucky indeed to have had a clean & beautiful ground floor room with a garden 🌴& sea view 🌊 as well as a welcome champagne 🍾 The hotel room comprises of several cleaning products, sanitary gels, masks, alcohol, other than the regular hotel room amenities like shampoo, soaps, body lotions, hair dryer, kettle, mini fridge, TV, towels, bed linens and so on. The towels and bed linens get changed regularly and body temperatures are taken twice daily. The wifi connection is very reliable. We are able to have video calls daily without a single cut-off in the connection. There has been a zumba class and the surprises just never end. The meals are well prepared and very well-presented -breakfast, lunch, teatime snacks and dinner get served daily on time. The F&B Manager, Mr Dave & the Chef, Mr Prakash are both doing a superb job. The hotel director, Mr Percy Carriapen and the restaurant’s Chef, Mr Prakash, both personally phoned to enquire about my wife’s stay as her preferences during this quarantine period. We really appreciated such a caring and pleasant gesture from the hotel management. Today is my wife’s day-5 in quarantine and she’s very positive about the coming days. We never thought that a quarantine stay could possibly be so wonderful. We would say- it’s less of a medical supervision period and more of an unplanned holiday! 🏖 We are looking forward to re-visit this beautiful place again after the quarantine period will end in Mauritius 🇲🇺 If you are looking for an unforgettable quarantine in Mauritius in the coming days, this hotel is the place to be. Sending a warm Hello to the great team of Veranda Pointe Aux Biches Hotel & Spa. -Hotel Room 4003 Read less

Hi all, It’s my 11th day in quarantine at Veranda Pointe aux Biches Hotel & Spa. The staff and management are very kind and helpful, trying to do their best to make us feel comfortable. They’re meeting all my special requests as well and always asking if I need anything. Many thanks them for that. And special thanks to Wanny from the reception, who was always on the line for me. I’m enjoying the nature and beautiful birds. My terrace is perfect for yoga practices. They also cook a vegan meal for me as per my request 🙏🌱💚 But, besides all of that I would like to thank the manager Ian Yardin who helped me to get my phone back from the airport, which I forgot in the plain. I couldn’t go to the airport by myself due to my quarantine, and I couldn’t wait for 14 days as well.The airport requested a hand written authorization letter for the courier, which is also forbidden to send out of quarantine place. So, it was like a dead end. But, the hotel manager solved this problem without braking any regulations and I finally could get my phone back. Will never forget his kind help. Read less
