The southwest coast of Mauritius is rich in wild nature with barely a sign of human presence. The domain known as Bel Ombre - Lovely Shadow - watches over the preservation of these landscapes whose beauty has earned the island its reputation. The northern coast on the other hand, is marked by an influx of tourists, hotel complexes, constant activity and overcrowded beaches. In the deepest part of the southern region, the natural décor, the “art de vivre” and a feeling of calm and exclusivity prevails. Here, sugar cane and tea are still harvested by hand, by women wearing saris. The ocher, wild orange and sometimes violet colors are intact as are the villages with picturesque names like Bois Chéri - Dearest Woods, Chemin Grenier - Attic Road, and Riche en Eau - Rich in Water. The highly popular Bel Ombre welcomes visitors looking for a variety of activities. Mauritian authorities have turned this former sugar concession into a luxury tourist complex. Five upscale hotels, a gastronomic restaurant within the walls of a 19th century castle and an 18-hole golf course are available to guests on this 250-hectare natural reserve.
On the Bel Ombre domain, the Hotel Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort’s overlying theme is colonial style refinement. Within the walls of this establishment, which has the feel of an old sugar plantation, time seems to have stood still, and one can almost imagine seeing the silhouette of the Irish naturalist, Charles Telfair walking around the property in the company of members of the Mauritius Royal Society of Arts and Sciences. Totally renovated in 2010, the 158 rooms have a very feminine décor with pastel tones, light pink, varnished parquet floors and furniture inspired by the East India Company, adding romance to the interiors.
The Anabella restaurant prolongs this elegant universe with a rich and varied cuisine including African, Asian and European influences. Fish dishes are grilled in full view of the guests under the direction of the Italian Chef, Enrico Rodati. Le Telfair is truly a romantic, old-fashioned universe.
Recently, the C Beach Club of the Hotel Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa has begun to organize Glam Parties. The Mauritian jet set and guests of the hotel come together on the beach to dance to the sound of the disc jockey’s choice of the latest music. This offer is part of what Le Telfair hotel director Jean-Luc Naret calls an “absolutely complete offer for guests of the hotel.” – Glamourparis.com
