The Oberoi is located on Mauritius' beautiful northeast coast
amongst lush gardens adorned with Indonesian sculptures. The
hotel's beach-front setting is both blissfully relaxing and
beneficial if you imagine diving and watersports being a big part
of your holiday. Bring your binoculars, and you might even spot
leaping dolphins as you are reclining on the beach. The relatively
small number of villas and large amount of space means the Oberoi
has a lovely, quiet feeling.
There are 72 thatched Pavilions and Villas, all of which
have a focal four poster bed and are decorated in mellow, soothing
colours. Each bathroom has a separate shower and sunken marble bath
overlooking an open air garden. The villas each have private
gardens and alfresco dining areas, most with private pool
overlooking the sea. The Royal Villa with Private Pool is the best
of all, offering a vast living space including a high-ceilinged
living room with panoramic sea views, a thatched pavilion in the
garden for private dining, and a raft of entertainment options; all
complemented by 24-hour butler service.
Film-star treatment with an emphasis on personal touches
rather than blanket luxury.
Though there is no children's club, young guests are
welcomed at the Oberoi. Two children under the age of eight can
stay in their parents' room complimentary, with extra beds provided
at no extra charge. The staff at the resort are very welcoming, and
there are a variety of options open to families, including sailing,
snorkelling and excursions around the island.
WEDDINGS & HONEYMOONS
The flexible, personalised approach at The Oberoi extends
to the organisation of weddings and honeymoons. The team will be
delighted to assist you in finding the right spot to tie the knot -
and of course with all the planning. Since spa treatments and
private dining are high on the agenda, and the pavilions and villas
are particularly private, the whole place is conducive to romance
and suitably special special occasions.
Everything from the delightful warm staff to the plush furnishings and perfectly pruned private spaces at The Oberoi ensures you feel wonderfully spoilt. Although the standard of luxury is truly international, the Oberoi is firmly rooted in its surroundings; I recommend taking one of the craft classes, learning about the plant and wildlife with one of the resident guides, exploring the underwater world, and taking advantage of trips to the capital, the Black Gorges and Chamarel.
Pleasingly private five-star hideaway with excellent spa and dining.
