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.

Activities throughout the day should be looked out for - there are loads of hidden surprises from rum tasting to afternoon tea - once you look. Don't miss the Friday night beach party for proper holiday vibes. Enjoyed walking barefoot throughout the resort and thoughtful addition of foot washing stations by the room. Would definitely come back! Read less

Review Superb! A home from home where you can relax and are looked after with care, respect and some good cheeky fun. We arrived in Mauritius to a band and dancers at the airport! Then onto the hotel where we were met by another band, dancers and the whole staff waving and clapping to welcome us as the first guests back, after Mauritius reopened to tourists. And even as we left the whole management team came out to see us off, the level of friendship and genuine fun from the staff was truly wonderful. Veranda Pointe Aux Biches is the escape, escape from SHOES! With sand in every area...from reception to the restaurants, I seriously did not wear shoes / flip flops for a week! (But you can if you want!) We upgraded to Sandy Lane area of the hotel (adults only) and an All inclusive package and did not look back. First night a beach party with Dave's dancing going down a treat! (you know who you are Mr Ops Manager!) the whole team we so very happy to be back together and to have guests, the atmosphere was wonderful the bbq excellent. Breakfast was great the usual egg station and everything else you need. Lunch was a buffet or Mauritian food on the beach. The beach has been cleared to create islands to swim over to (or walk) and lots of fish to see. Rooms were excellent and a powerful shower!!! Fab beds and great towels. Dinners were in two different restaurants one Al La Carte and one buffet, all good. Remember its a smaller hotel...They will make anything if you pre order! Romantic meals on the beach, everything is fabulous! So staff. They are all a delight but some special mentions go to… Percy, GM every day on site, checking chatting, and importantly listening, the perfect host. Dave (Ops Manager/and everything you need man) just a delight, friendly and funny but also a great eye for detail and making sure everyone is having a good time. Oomar who looked after our room and Bears with lots of towel art! Geraldine, what can we say, clearly THE Boss! Love her. Sade at the bar, express deliveries, Sonny, imaginary hat! Smiling everyday, Anu (runs a tight ship) just wonderful thank you for our special dinner. Kajal … funny lady (offered to get me some sticks for my eyes one morning when I was tired!) Pawan great fun. Raj the A team barman and Nathan the ever enthusiastic beach entertainment operator!! Read less

From the time we arrived we were made to feel very special. The most beautiful sunsets, stunning gardens. Beautifully decorated rooms, special touches from the cleaning staff with the towel decorations. Nice to be able to sup and canoe right on the beach. Staff were very professional and helpful. Amazing service from Kajal , every day she checked in on us, she is certainly an asset to Veranda. Great massages at the spa , beautiful setting on the beach. My only constructive criticism would be that the activities advertised did not always take place and there could be more variety with meals however they did accommodate our kids by making them something special, thanks to chef victor. Maybe themed evenings for dinner would be nice, to create variety. All in all we had a very relaxing special time and that’s thanks to the amazing staff. Read less
