Set in a very secluded spot on Mauritius' northwest coast amongst tropical gardens, The Oberoi focuses on excellent service, relaxation and privacy. There's a distinctly African ambience to the architecture, with palm-thatched roofs and open-air buildings. The grounds are immaculate and the swimming pools enjoy magical views out over the ocean. With a relatively low number of rooms compared to other resorts on the island, this is a hotel where service is taken very seriously, albeit with a friendly Mauritian smile.

The resort has a peaceful atmosphere, with most people here to enjoy the beach, clear, warm waters and excellent facilities. In the evenings, however, the resort comes alive as you enjoy live music, including jazz bands, saxophonists and a piano bar.

Rooms

The Oberoi offers spacious accommodation with sea views. Each room features a four-poster bed, vaulted ceilings and a refined yet understated decor. The en suite bathrooms have a separate shower and a sunken bath overlooking a walled garden. All rooms are air conditioned and have a butler service, TV, DVD player, minibar and tea/coffee making facilities. The accommodation options span a range of categories, with the two and three bedroom villas being excellent choices for families or groups of friends.

Location

The property enjoys a quiet setting amongst tropical gardens. Set on a long beach of white sand with three crescent-shaped bays, it's a prime location for watching the changing colours of the sky at sunset. The resort area of Grand Baie is around 20 minutes away in a taxi, where you'll find plenty of bars, restaurants and shops.

Food and Drink

Open for breakfast and dinner, The Restaurant is a very impressive structure and offers a beautiful dining experience, with panoramic ocean views and a high, palm-thatched roof. It's possible to dine inside or outside; in the morning you can enjoy coffee under a blue sky, while in the evening you can tuck in to your dinner under the stars to the sound of croaking frogs. The cuisine is excellent and features European, Oriental and Creole dishes, with plenty of fresh local fruit, vegetables and spices used in the dishes. The Restaurant has a smart dress code in the evening and men are expected to wear long trousers and a shirt with a collar.

On the Rocks has a fantastic viewpoint over the beach and ocean. Open for lunch and dinner, tables are often limited here so booking in advance for dinner is recommended. Lunch features a choice of salads, pasta, pizzas and sandwiches, while in the evening you'll be served fusion cuisine in a very relaxed atmosphere by the sea.

The Main Bar serves up an extensive selection of wines and spirits, as well as entertainment including live jazz and piano.

Families

Families are welcome here, and there's a free children's club for 4-12 year-olds to keep younger guests entertained. There are a range of spacious multi-bedroom accommodation options to suit larger families. Babysitting is also available for an additional cost.

Environmental and Social Responsibility

The Oberoi is involved in a number of social projects, which include helping to modernise and renovate basic houses, organising meals and clothes for the elderly and projects with disabled children.

Our opinion

One of the island's finest hotels, this is a luxurious resort where you can relax in complete comfort and style. The service is excellent and this is a great choice for those seeking privacy and an intimate atmosphere. Dining is a highlight for many guests here, as are the beautiful sunsets.
