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.

Outstanding hotel. 5star Plus. The welcome was very warm and everyone ( from the manager Percy, to the reception team, the cleaners, the entertainers, the restaurant staff ) was literally falling over themselves to ascertain we were happy and the children comfortable. Percy personally goes round daily to check all is well. Also, we were very pleasantly surprised to note the level of hygiene put into place indoors and outdoors. The family room are very spacious and clean with daily ‘towel art’. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Reassuringly is the presence of 24/7 security on site. Food is plentiful and delightfully delicious and very adaptable to fussy children. We extend out thanks to Vandana, Anoop, the Timomo Kids club team, Romi and the entertainers (Isae, Nathan) and many more, whose names I cannot recall unfortunately. Finally, a special mention to the wonderful Julio who went above and beyond! Cannot fault anything. When one is in receipt of such hospitality, one is absolutely proud to be Mauritian. Read less
