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 husband and I stayed here for 7 nights at the end of April. We were awe-struck as soon as we arrived, into the calm blissful environment of reception, where we were welcomed with cold towels and juice. We were immediately relaxed. Friendly staff checked us in and we were welcomed by accommodation manager Vikram. We were given a tour of the hotel and led to our room which we couldn’t fault – spacious, clean, modern facilities with a cool, laid back charm. We stayed in the adults-only Sandy Lane wing part of the hotel – a beautiful, chilled-out space with a dreamy infinity pool, peaceful bar and separate a la carte restaurant. We had an all-inclusive package and went for lunch at the main restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious cocktail looking out over the beach and sea. The view from the main dining space is beautiful and we loved coming here for our breakfast and lunch each day. The food is plentiful and tasty with lots of variety. We loved relaxing back in Sandy Lane enjoying cocktails from the bar made by the funny and friendly Nischal. Every night we looked forward to dining in Sandy Lane where we experienced professional, efficient and friendly service by Anu and Anoop, wonderful 5 course daily changing menus and the relaxing ambience. We enjoyed listening to the pianist who plays in the Sandy Lane bar a few times a week and we sometimes went across to the main bar for the entertainment after dinner. There was a lovely event on the beach one night with dancing and cocktails but we wish it had lasted longer! My husband and I both enjoyed a full body massage in one of the lovely spa cabins overlooking the beach which eased away all our tension from our long flight. Thank you Stessy and Reggissa! (sorry I can’t remember the spelling). We looked forward returning to our room each day to see the wonderful animal towel art made by Ohrmeshwaree, especially on my birthday when I was surprised with a birthday cake made of towels and a lovely handwritten note. The room was always spotlessly cleaned, tidied and replenished and had everything we needed. As a wonderful birthday treat, lovely Anu at Sandy Lane arranged a special table on the beach, a cake and a surprise performance of happy birthday from the lovely Coddy and some others whose names I’m afraid I can’t remember. It was such a special evening and one I will always remember. Thank you, Anu! The hotel is a lovely size and is extremely well cared for. The reception area is beautiful with gorgeous patterns raked in the sand every day, there is an extensive cocktail list in the bars and the big bottles of water for guests is really appreciated. We loved lounging in the hammocks dotted around and watching the amazing sun sets from the beach. All of the staff we encountered were friendly, polite and helpful. Sarah and the lovely guys at the bar, the ladies serving the food in the main restaurant, Nanda the restaurant manager, the reception team. The guys at the water sport kiosk hire on the beach. Special thanks to Nischal, Anu and Anoop (and their young assistant) really made our time in Sandy Lane so memorable. Do make sure you book the free shuttle bus to Trou aux Biches with reception and enjoy the free trip in the glass bottom boat where you can go snorkelling in gorgeous warm clear water (there is snorkelling stuff on the boat you can use). Trou aux Biches is a gorgeous beach and only takes about 20 minutes to walk to and back from (walk along the beach instead of the road where possible as it takes you straight back to the beach at the hotel). We cannot recommend this hotel enough and cannot wait to return! Read less

We arrived at Veranda Pointe Aux Biches and were welcomed warmly by Christel at Reception. Check-in was easy and smooth and followed by a quick tour of the premises. Our rooms were immaculately clean, and Olivier (our housekeeper) made beautiful "towel art" for us everyday on the bed, from swans to elephants, and fishes - we were excited to see what he made everyday! The restaurant staff were great, always serving us with a smile - special thanks to Vakish! Food was a good variety, and we were treated by a special lunch time meal with manager Vikram - the most delicious curry's and rotti's! Thank you Vikram! The staff also made us feel very special with an Anniversary cake for us and our friends, they even sang for us! Our drinks were refilled by the bar and as we became regulars, they knew exactly what our order was each time - special thanks to Manish for always serving us, from the beach to the pool, to the bar! Entertainment was good, afternoons on the beach with volleyball and music. The dance night was the most fun as we took over the dance floor - special thanks to Coddy running the entertainment! Overall we had a great time and will cherish our memories forever! Read less

Thanks for a wonderful experience and stay at the Veranda Pointe Aux Biches. This is the second year in a row we visit this hotel. It was amazing this year too. It is a great atmosphere and top service. The hotel has a great sea and beach location. The restaurant serves fantastic food, with a varied selection every day. We enjoyed ourselves from morning to night here. Thanks to all the staff at this place, you are doing the best service. From the time we arrived to we left the hotel we felt looked after and felt at home. You are wonderful people all of you at the reception, the restaurants, the bar, the cleaners, all in the kithen, the vaiters and the gardeners who make our stay to an experience. It is a pleasure to be here, so as not to forget someone, i praise you all. I also want to include the regular taxi drivers standing outside, ready to drive us wherever we want. There is no doubt, here we feel at home and will return as soon as possible. Best regards from Anne Karin og Arild Read less
