Overview


Inspired in mood and design by the concept of a turn-of-the-century planter's mansion, The Residence evokes a serene mood of colonial-style luxury. This exclusive resort boasts a glorious setting on the east coast, 50 minutes from the airport, beside a long beach of powder-white sand and offers subtle sophistication, understated elegance and attentive service. A first glimpse of a majestic lobby sets the impressive scene and the colonial-themed buildings set among 25 acres of lush tropical gardens make it one of Mauritius' in demand choices for families, couples and even a wedding backdrop. The delicate shades of beige with tropical hardwood furnishings and glimpses of antiques from all corners of Asia, unite to enhance the sense of tranquillity and recapture the elegance of a bygone era. Exquisite facilities include La Prairie Spa, a choice of elegant or informal dining venues, and excellent leisure activities for all ages and great waters for diving enthusiasts - a true hideaway of style!
