Beautifully renovated, this elegant and Colonial-style resort has a beautiful beach-front setting and a real focus on wellbeing.
The beautiful Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort reopens (web)/reopened (brochure) in September 2017 following an extensive renewal. Refining and refreshing its old-world décor and enhancing its emphasis on wellness, the resort retains its welcoming ambience and personalised service. Crossed by a tranquil river and fronted by a white-sand beach and vibrant lagoon the natural setting couldn’t be any better. Add to this a wide variety of activities – both on the water and in the Domaine – and you have a picture-perfect setting for a tropical retreat.
Dining at Le Telfair is a pleasure and there are three restaurants and a lounge onsite. The main restaurant Annabella’s features a buffet breakfast and themed a la carte dinner menus as well as providing a variety of healthy dishes which reflect the focus on wellbeing. The al fresco Le Palmier pool and beach restaurant has always been a popular location for lunch and it’s now open for dinner making it the perfect spot to dine under the stars. Gin’ja is the top table at Le Telfair and it specialises in flavoursome Asian cuisine. Guests can also dine at Le Château de Bel Ombre, the Golf Club Restaurant and Bar, C Beach Club and the restaurants at Heritage Awali. And if you opt for the Gourmet Bliss all-inclusive upgrade, your meals will be included at these restaurants (depending on restaurant opening times).
The wonderfully refurbished butler-serviced suites are located in two-storey villas dotted around the resort and have a beautifully light, Plantation house-style with white-washed walls and dark wood furniture. The Gardenview Suites overlook the resort’s tropical gardens while guests in the Seaview Suites and Beachfront Suites can enjoy views of the Indian Ocean from their balcony. It’s well worth upgrading to the Junior or Senior Suites for a little extra room as they feature a living area or room respectively.
At the heart of Domaine de Bel Ombre on the south coast
Domaine de Bel Ombre
In a incredible setting between the Indian Ocean and the lush mountainous interior of southern Mauritius, sits the spectacular Domaine de Bel Ombre. This former sugar estate covers over 2500 beautiful acres, all centred on the 19th-Century Le Chateau de Bel Ombre, now one of the finest gourmet restaurants on the island.
The estate is home to the two separate resorts of Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort and Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort, alongside a vast nature reserve and a host of facilities which include a lively beach club and the prestigous Heritage Golf Club.
While each resort has its own facilities, all guests can make the most of these shared facilities and the numerous activities on offer. A favourite spot has got to be the C Beach Club, a chic venue set right on the beach. Here you’ll find the Cabana boathouse which offers a range of water and land sports; the restaurants Coast and Cyan; and The Chill lounge bar, the perfect spot for a sundowner.
