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.

What an incredible stay at this fantasy resort. Special thanks to Dina from housekeeping who made such a difference to our room daily. Her creativity and friendliness meant so much to us and we’ll never forget her. The entertainment by Aaron was superb. His constant energy and personality really made a huge difference. We’ll definitely be back!!

We came down for a wedding and had the most amazing time imaginable. The hotel staff: Dina, Neeta, Aaron, Rana, Francois, Rabecca, Bebe, Muzimeel and Vikesh just to name a few were absolutely stunning and offered the very best service possible which made our stay so memorable. Everything from the bar to the spa was phenomenal. The beach is rocky and I would recommend diving shoes. They have the most amazing animals on the property as well and we plan on adopting a cat which we have named Mont Choisy- check @mikey_coovadia on Instagram to see the progress. I’ve had such a blast and would definitely return! Thank you to all the staff from Veranda Point Aux Read less

Had a wonderful time here, staff so friendly and helpful and loved the little attention to details. Did a day trip to Flat island and Gabriel Island. The snorkeling was absolutely out of this world beautiful. Loads of tropical fish.
