With an exterior inspired by old plantation houses from the 1920’s and an interior that successfully combines old sepia photos with the luxuries of the modern day, this is the ultimate Mauritius retreat. Fairly large by our standards, each room and suite provides secluded living in a tranquil atmosphere, all the way complimented by the shimmering ocean and green garden views.
Located on the east coast of Mauritius, a place renowned for its beauty, The Residence Mauritius is 48 kilometres from the airport and sheltered from the southeast winds. Right on a stunning beach, one kilometre in length, on a coast peppered with lagoons and coves, it nestles comfortably in its very own 25 acre fragrant gardens.
Accommodation & Facilities
Rooms and suites are available in a range of sizes with either ocean or garden views. All rooms have a private balcony or a terrace, and some rooms interconnect making them a good option for families. There are seven different categories of room and suite, which are beautifully decorated with colonial furniture, a muted colour scheme of white and delicate shades of beige, alongside wrought iron and wooden shutters. The gentle scent of ylang-ylang and exotic spices drifts through the rooms and a private butler is there to cater to your every need, ensuring a stay of pure opulence.
Facilities include a freshwater swimming pool, a children’s pool and a Jacuzzi, a gym with a good range of aerobics and weights equipment, and three floodlit tennis courts. The Sanctuary, the in-house Spa, has a space of 600 m2 dedicated to treatments of the body and mind. There are nine cabins, one of which is located in a tropical garden overlooking the lagoon, where beauty treatments and massages are performed in the softness of the sea breeze.
Cuisine is considered an integral part of the stay and there are three main restaurants as well as a relaxing bar. Native produce from the island is fused with a diverse range of outstanding recipes from around the world offering a stunning mix of subtle aromas, colours and exotic flavours.
With a stunning beach and Spa facilities available, The Residence is the ideal spot for some rest and relaxation. For the more active guests there are a great deal of complimentary water sports included in your stay, and the use of the tennis courts, and state-of-the-art gym. Other activities such as scuba diving or deep sea fishing can be organised. The marine world here is incredible and you don’t need to dive to see it, snorkelling is a great option if you don’t fancy going too deep.
Children of all ages are welcome and the Planters Kids’ Club accommodates kids from 3 to 12 years old allowing parents to take full advantage of this exotic resort. Highly trained nannies are also available at competitive rates and will look after kids throughout the day and the evening. Children’s menus are available to ensure your loved ones are always well catered for.
