  • Romantic holidays at The Residence Mauritius

    A recipe for Mauritian romance at The Residence

    The Residence sits back from a mile-long stretch of immaculate beach and crisp lagoon waters on the east coast of Mauritius. Groping its way along the coast, this delicate wisp of white sand is an impressive abode that by no means overshadows the resort itself. The Residence’s utter exclusivity and impeccable hospitality combine in an effortless equation for sheer romance.

    With the British weather ever struggling to brighten, it is almost hard to imagine the sun-bleached perfection that The Residence calls home. The Residence is a resort that guests often come to feel quite comfortable calling ‘home’ too, as its staff is renowned for their world-class hospitality. Get to know the Residence family by name and find comfort in a pervasive feeling of understated elegance. Lacking pretention, the carefully construed ambiance is utterly suited to the environment as its laidback feel only serves to amplify the magnificence of its beachside setting. Although not strictly ‘homely’ in the sense of cosy warmth, one would expect no less than a five star comfort level that is reserved for holiday indulgence – and all the more enjoyable for it.

    From the palm-fringed border that delineates property’s boundaries, marvel at the pristine sands and turquoise waters that invite all manner of indulgences – from sedate paddling to active water sports pursuits. Occupy a shady sunbed amidst the exotic palms or poolside, where a refreshing freeform swimming pool glories in astounding views of natural Mauritius. Shared by surrounding resort structures, take every opportunity to absorb the scene: vivid blue hues of sun, sea and sky separated only by a slash of pure white sand that is dotted with emerald splashes atop swaying palms. The resort structure itself shies away from the limelight, its white-washed walls, broad verandas and balconies exuding a cool, colonial vibe. The architectural centrepiece is an abstract roof that juts into the sky and shelters the entrance lobby, whilst filtering sea breezes through its lofty eaves. This is where newcomers to the resort are greeted with welcoming drinks and their first glimpse of the wonderful grounds.

    Sanctuary Spa
    The cultural diversity of Mauritius has given way to a design style at The Residence that incorporates Asian themes in particular. Witness this influence in wood carving artwork, intricate fretwork and fragrant orchids scattered throughout the property, but guests can also look to the spa menu for this Asian influence. Claimed to be a ‘temple of relaxation’, Sanctuary Spa is clear in its philosophy, whereby Asian-themed custom treatments seek to refresh both mind and body. Performed in nine cabins situated in tropical gardens overlooking the lagoon, the experience is very romantic. Find out more about spa holidays at The Residence Mauritius. For those less seduced by the more sedate pastimes of The Residence, sporting activities include tennis and horse riding as well as an array of water sports. Explore the treasures of Mauritius’ underwater eco-system on diving excursions and snorkelling trips, or opt to stay above water with canoeing and kayaking, wind surfing, water skiing and paddle boating.

    Evening romance at The Residence Mauritius
    When evening rolls around, the dining opportunities at The Residence spell romance to the highest degree, with meals serving a unique blend of international cuisines in amongst stunning surrounds. The Dining Room is housed in a poolside timber structure, where an a la carte menu combines Western and local flavours that interplay to create delightful, lightly-spiced dishes. The Plantation occupies a beachside planter’s house, where fresh seafood and Creole cuisine is laid on. Post-dinner treats can be had at The Bar, where a traditional tea – or something a bit stronger – can be enjoyed in a refined atmosphere of mahogany furniture adorned with cosy, white cushions. Above all through, the beach is the best place to spend the evening hours, ambling along the length of sand and admiring the endless sea as the sunlight falls. 

    Prices from £1950 per person for 7 nights based on two people sharing a Colonial Garden View Room double or twin room. Price includes flights, transfers and accommodation.
