Four Seasons Mauritius: It’s Like Home, But Much Better

Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita Review

 

Four Seasons Mauritius Resort Review

The impressive coastline of Mauritius is peppered with luxurious resorts which would make any traveler drool. As loyal Four Seasons customers, we chose to spend our first couple of days in Mauritius at the Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita.

The Four Seasons is situated on the east coast of Mauritius on its own 11 acre private island. The entire resort is comprised of villas — each differing in size — which makes this resort a unique place to stay in Mauritius. Each of the 123 villas has it’s own private yard and plunge pool — with either a view of the ocean, a garden view, or panoramic views of mangrove trees. The way the resort is laid out gives guests a feeling of privacy and eliminates noise from neighbors.

The Ultimate Romantic Getaway in Mauritius

Without consulting each other beforehand, Scott and I each came up with one word to describe the Four Seasons Resort in Mauritius. I wasn’t too surprised when we each came up with very similar words.

Warm and welcoming.

After reading numerous online reviews, the impeccable service and attention to detail seems to be a recurring theme in other guest reviews. The Four Seasons Mauritius feels comfortable like home, with a welcoming staff, top-notch restaurants, your own private plunge pool, and beaches that will take your breath away.

Upon arrival, the staff immediately unloaded our luggage and led us to an open-air sitting room with couches, overlooking a gorgeous blue lagoon. After a fresh passionfruit and kaffir lime welcome drink, we were conveniently driven to our villa in a golf buggy. The resort is not as spread out as I would have expected, so the buggies are not necessary, but it’s a nice touch and definitely a welcome surprise after a long journey. I’ll admit, we even called for a buggy to give us a ride to dinner a few times when we were feeling lazy.

I’m repeatedly impressed with the ability of the Four Seasons chain to think of everything before their guests even ask — mosquito coil on the patio, bug spray in every villa, and sunblock available by the pool and beach.

The daily breakfast at Beau Champ was definitely a highlight during our stay. This spacious restaurant is surrounded by water, filled with a variety of colorful fish. We ordered delicious dishes from our server that ranged from Madagascar Eggs Benedict to River Prawn Frittata covered with a Vanilla and Lobster Bisque. As those dishes were being prepared, we headed for the buffet to load up on fresh vegetable and fruit juice (made to order), Indian cuisine, pastries, and unlimited brie.

Water Activities at the Four Seasons Mauritius

One of the most important things for us when choosing a hotel on a tropical island is the distance from a beach with opportunities for water sports. The Four Seasons Mauritius offers waterskiing (it’s where Scott tried it for the first time!) and all other non-motorized water sports complimentary to guests. The boathouse is located on Bambou Beach, where you can rent kayaks and peddle boats or sign up for the daily snorkel boat, a trip to Ile aux Cerfs island, glass bottom boat trips, or sailing on a Hobie Cat.

The Spa at the Four Seasons Mauritius

The Spa at the Four Seasons Mauritius is located in several small villas overlooking the ocean. The villa suites include a changing room, massage room, shower, and steam room. Relaxing lemongrass and ginger tea from the spa garden is served before and after each massage. The Mauritian Fusion treatment was the perfect combination of a deep and relaxing massage.

    This looks like paradise! Both the resort and Mauritius itself. The colour of the sea just makes you want to swim in it! And those big, textured skies are just magical. Beautiful photos – and I’m not surprised you were so impressed with the place. Looks idyllic! 🙂
