Adrift on the shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean, with the green peaks of Mauritius' idyllic Le Morne Branbant Mountain range looming in the distance, The St. Regis Mauritius Resort is an island paradise miles from the monotony of everyday. From the airy, ivory canopies draped above the oversized beds to the lavish Remède bath amenities, The St. Regis Mauritius Resort upholds the superior standards of elegance and refinement essential to the internationally acclaimed Starwood brand. With a myriad of ornate lobbies and intricately designed corridors, six restaurants boasting international cuisine, and over 170 spacious rooms that complement the natural beauty of the surrounding area, the St. Regis Mauritius offers its elite clientele "experience beyond expectation."
Greet the morning on your private terrace as the resort's dedicated staff attends to a colorful array of island fruits and sumptuous local delicacies for breakfast. Then, explore the lofty peaks and verdant valleys of Mauritius on horseback, or take to the sea with a list of "to-do" activities from deep-sea fishing and kayaking to uncovering the hidden treasures of the dazzling underwater coral reefs. The resort also offers a catalogue of organized activities including a sublime day on the water with a dolphin cruise and poolside activities. If your ideal luxury vacation means a day of shopping and "spa-ing," spa treatments are available at the resort, and the Bagatelle Mall of Mauritius is just a few short miles away. Return to the resort for a taste of heaven. Whether you hope to savor sumptuous Indian fare, or want to please your palate with Pan-Asian small plates, the resort's six eateries will carry your taste buds on a flavorful journey across the globe. A night cap at the charmingly old-fashioned 1904 Bar, and a luxurious soak in your room's massive tub sets the mood for a tranquil evening under the stars. Then, as the sounds of sugar cane swaying in the fields lulls you to sleep, delight in the knowledge that you do not need to dream of paradise—because you have already arrived.
