    Our opinion

    "Independence and freedom to enjoy the stunning natural environment combined with access to facilities across 11 nearby properties."

    Hotel description

    A development initiated by the architect of the nearby Heritage Golf course, Heritage the Villas offers homely villa-only accommodation in the lap of Mauritian luxury. With glorious views of the Indian Ocean and access to facilities belonging to the spread of Heritage properties, they propose a unique option for holidays to Mauritius.
    The 50 Heritage villas can be found in amongst 200 acres of tropical grounds within a 2500 hectare conservation area in the Domaine de Bel Ombre. Here, the natural landscape is varied and beautiful, from the lazy stretch of white sand beach and the tranquil turquoise lagoon, to the lush tropical landscape. The villas occupy a prime location sandwiched between the two, offering guests a deluxe home-from-home environment in which to enjoy the special natural environment. Spacious and comfortable, the villas blend home comforts with holiday luxury. The self-contained accommodation is practical, with self-catering facilities providing occupants with an independence that can be lacking when staying in a hotel.
    A personalised butler service ensures that guests need not cook for themselves. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners can be prepared by an in-villa chef and enjoyed in the comfort of private accommodation. Alternative dining arrangements are available within the nearby Heritage properties, which total 11 bars and restaurants. Seven Colours Spa facilities are also shared by neighbouring Heritage hotels.
    Residents receive the added benefit of unlimited free green fees at the 18-hole Heritage Golf course. Or, if golf isn’t your sport, the neighbouring Nature Reserve offers a wealth of leisure pursuits, including walking, quad biking, 4x4 tracks, and mountain biking. At the beach, volleyball, kayaking and windsurfing are more leisurely activities.
