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 loved our stay at Veranda Pointe Aux Biches. For our honeymoon they offered a candle-light dinner and nice room decoration. The rooms are pretty nice and clean. The restaurant offers a high standard of local and international food. During and after the dinner they offer an entertainment program of live music or dance shows. The hotel owned beach is small but very clean and nice. Your day on the beach is more funny with the free activities they offer such as kayak, stand-up paddle, snorkeling, beachvolleyball, boccia and more. The whole personal is professional and always friendly. Special thanks to the animators Ronny and Jeffry you made our stay even more agreeable. We would definitely come back. Read less

The service of the hotel room was poor. Buffet was not bad but not enough variety at times. Flies were a big problem even although they have covers for some foods the flies fly in when you lift the lid.

The perfekt hotel for lazy barfoot days. Perfect service and well educated and friendly straff. Good space at beach and garden.Nice to take a little snorkling tour directly on the beach. I do recomend staying in the area Sandy Lane, for grown ups. The straff can arrange a romantic dinner right on the beach or a hole wedding.

Five nights with a group of 8 adults - fantastic location and excellent accomodation. The rooms were well equiped and the pool area lovely. There were many on beach activities to be had and the Buffet meals were varied, fresh and plentiful. The Spa treatments were excellent and catered for both men and women. The only issue was that the spirits (rum and gin) ran out during our stay - it was over the new year and there had been a cyclone but still - everyone’s requests should be catered for. Make sure that the ‘full board’ package is taken as otherwise it could be expensive. Read less
