Two pools form the swimming scene here. And when your tummy rumbles, you can help yourself to the buffet spread at Les Alizés restaurant, or grab a bite to eat from the snack cart on the beach. During the day, you’ll be able to cover off games of boules and ping pong, along with local cooking and language lessons, or treatments in the spa. And when night falls, singers, dancers and musicians take to the stage in the bar.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
Darts, ping pong and boules are on the cards, along with glass-bottom boat trips* on the lagoon. You can also get involved with weekly Mauritian cooking classes and Creole language lessons.
If you fancy getting to know the local area, take a stroll with one of the hotel’s smartphones. You’ll get a location-based alert when you’re nearing points of interest, like a local sugar cane factory or a hidden sandy cove.

FOOD & DRINK
Les Alizés restaurant takes care of mealtimes. There’s a buffet for breakfast and lunch. At dinnertime, the set-up switches between Mauritian, Indian and Italian-themed spreads, and a thrice-weekly à la carte set menu.
There’s an à la carte restaurant called Taba-J in the plans for winter 2017. It’ll serve up street food – Mauritian style – so you’ll be able to tuck into dishes like curries with paratha flatbreads. Plus, you’ll have the chance to join a team member for a Family Dinner* at their home, where you’ll learn how to prepare Mauritian food like a local.

Here you'll find a couple of treatment rooms and a variety of treatments on offer, including massages, body care and facials using rituals based on the natural elements of Mauritius; the soil, sea, sun and plants.
The dancefloor by the bar is filled with colours during the weekly sega show, where dancers dressed in bright outfits move to the beat of local music. Singers and musicians provide the soundtrack a few nights a week, too.
Tides Bar is plonked right on the sand – so you can feel the sand beneath your feet as you sip beer and wine. Or, try a tipple of Attitude rum – it comes in lychee, pineapple or vanilla flavour, and is made with local sugar cane.
- Evening entertainment programme
5 times a week you'll find evening entertainment.
There’s a duo of curvy pools, and padded loungers and palms decorate their edges. The pools are next to each other, so you can easily hop between them, making a top-up stop at the bar en route.
The hotel’s bagged a private section of Belle Mare beach and it’s all set up with loungers and palapas. Staff wheel a traditional Mauritian beach cart down to the sand and hand out cocktails and afternoon snacks.
