The Residence

Mauritius & Rodrigues

Rating: Ultimate    

The Residence overview

The Residence is set on over half a mile of sandy beach on the lovely east coast of Mauritius near Belle Mare. Service is second to none, with each room and suite being appointed their own personal butler, who will unpack your bags, run your bath and take care of laundry and ironing during your stay.

The 135 rooms and 28 suites all have air conditioning and ceiling fans, modern ensuite bathrooms with separate bathtub and shower, living area, TV, CD/DVD player, phone and minibar. Rooms have either garden, partial sea or full sea views and balcony or terrace. The suites are larger and have a large private terrace with chairs and table. The ocean view and ocean front suites also have 4 poster beds.

There is no shortage of activities. All the usual watersports are available - waterskiing, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking, glass bottom boat rides and snorkelling. Diving, catamaran cruises and sailing boat hire can also be arranged (payable locally). Other activities include tennis - there are 3 floodlit courts - and volleyball. For those wanting to take it easy, there is ample space to relax around the pool, in the tropical garden or on the private beach. Additional on site facilities include 5 boutiques and a Kids Club, with daily activities to keep the young ones (3-12 years) entertained.

The Sanctuary Spa
Dedicated to relaxation, the spa offers a vast range of treatments including indivually tailored programmes and special Asian treatments. There are 9 treatment rooms where guests can enjoy soothing therapies including massages and body wraps, exfoliations, stone therapy using hot and cold stones to release muscular tension, Reiki and reflexology. They also offer Ytsara treatments, based on ancient Thai holistic therapies and Thai yoga massage. Special treatments are available for children. The Sanctuary also incorporates a hair and beauty salon offering nail treaments and waxing. In addition guests can relax in the sauna or steam room. Gym and aerobics classes are available and personal gym training programmes can be devised.


A daily buffet breakfast is served in 'The Dining Room', a rich mixture of local and western fare. In the evenings a la carte meals are served here. Lunch can be taken at 'The Verandah', a selection of light meals including toasted sandwiches, oven-baked pizzas, salads and home made ice creams, served around the pool. 'The Plantation' is set on the seafront and specialises in seafood and local dishes, being a famous restaurant in the area. It is open for both lunch and dinner. The bar has comfy sofas and armchairs and is open for late breakfast and high tea as well as for drinks. The piano bar often provides soft music in the evening.

E Warren

"Wow! This place is so nice, exceeded our expectations. The setting is beautiful and the rooms are large and airy, the villa pool is great to have a swim in. The food is outstanding, the nicest food we had on our holiday. We had booked The Residence for relaxation and we got to do just that. Everyone is so friendly and really made us feel special! The staff are always trying to go the extra mile. We would definitely come back, the only thing is you would not know you are in Africa, so if someone was wanting culture and history this would not be the place. For relaxation, pampering and a lovely beach holiday this is the place."

Mrs. Marie-Louise McAlister
"Beautiful hotel and friendly staff. Food good. Staff in the dining rooms were helpful but it is a little disorganised meaning that it can take quite a while for drinks to arrive. Wonderful Spa, suggest everyone tries it. The hotel is on the beach - marvellous setting. "
