The Residence Mauritius
If your idea of a dream holiday means not having to lift a finger – not even to unpack your suitcase – The Residence Mauritius is definitely for you! Nestling between tropical gardens and an expansive beach of platinum white sand on the east coast of Mauritius, The Residence exudes 1920’s colonial charm cleverly blended with the contemporary cool elegance of a modern day refuge. Lofty, vaulted ceilings and pristine white walls set against a searingly blue sky contrast with gleaming dark wood and sepia photographs. An air of nostalgia and romance pervades and it will undoubtedly bring out the Ernest Hemingway or Rudyard Kipling in you.
The Residence Mauritius
This captivatingly elegant resort is a huge favourite of Turquoise and is inspired by turn-of-the-century Mauritian plantation houses. All rooms and suites are adorned with cool cream linens, ceiling fans turning lazily overhead and beautiful views of the tropical gardens or turquoise ocean can be seen from your balcony. Suites offer more space with separate bedrooms (some feature romantic four poster beds) and terraces furnished with elegant wooden chairs. Service is evocative of the ‘golden age of travel’ with a personal butler who will attend to your every whim and desire. Other lovely touches include ‘check in’ carried out in the comfort of your room.
Mauritius is a melting pot of cultures and influences and you can taste your way through the cuisine in the fabulous restaurants. The Dining Room overlooks the pool and is perfect for sumptuous breakfast and elegant dinner. The Plantation boasts quite simply the most breathtaking beachfront location and serves the freshest seafood with Creole flavours for lunch and dinner – it is unreservedly one of our favourite places to eat anywhere on the island.
Younger guests are extremely well catered for at the Planters Kids Club. Creative, friendly and efficient, the Planters team are keen to delight your little ones with a range of exciting activities from treasure hunts and pony rides to beach picnics!
If you can bear to leave the white sands of the Belle Mare Beach, or your harmonious ylang-ylang perfumed room or suite, you will find at the heart of this earthly paradise The Sanctuary – a tranquil Zen-inspired spa with nine treatment rooms dedicated to rejuvenating and re-balancing the body and soul. Tai Chi, Pilates, reflexology and a variety of relaxing massage options are available too. For water-babies water-skiing, windsurfing, hobie cat sailing, paddle boats and glass bottom boats are all offered complimentary. The Residence Mauritius offers luxury beach retreat at its best!
Jonty our Sales Director and his wife Suzy our South Pacific Product manager, spent their honeymoon at The Residence and it’s easy to see why!
