The St. Regis Mauritius

Introduction: The St. Regis Mauritius opened in late 2012 on the southwestern side of the island. Their rates are among the highest in Mauritius despite being one of the biggest luxury resorts in the country. The design is typical St. Regis and very impressive with a high attention to details.

Arrival experience: Warm welcome, before being offered a cold towel and a welcome drink.

What I loved: The design and service are the main reasons to stay here. The food is better than in most properties in Mauritius and I can recommend the vegetarian dishes at their Indian restaurant. Although there still are areas to improve, one year after the opening, I consider this property one of the best 5 star resorts in Mauritius.
