The main Manor House with the Le Morne backdrop

So previously I blogged about whether Mauritius is a family destination and it definitely is. I am very fortunate to have been able to stay in quite a few hotels in Mauritius when I visited on holidays prior to me moving here permanently. One of my favourite hotels on the island is The St Regis Resort & Spa, a 5-star luxury resort, the first St Regis Hotel in Africa. I visited the hotel shortly after it opened its doors in 2013.

It is set on an amazing white beach on the SouthWest of the island. 

Traditional colonial style with complimenting contemporary touches.


It's a 5-star hotel so it will have everything you would expect from a high end hotel but some of the unique facilities:

- La Palme d'Or private cinema
- Library
- Butler service


Butler Service - The Butler Pavilion

The stunning rooms & suites are arranged in two storey blocks along the beach. The junior suite we stayed in was clean & fresh with wood, stone and neutral tone furnishings. The touches of sage green against the natural materials made the space feel calm and relaxing. The bedroom was spacious and the bathroom and wardrobe space were equally generous in size. The highlight for me was the bed, it was so comfortable!

Junior Suite with complimentary gifts (minus the plush toy in the bag)

The spacious bathroom



There are 5 restaurants and 2 bars so plenty of choices to choose from ranging from French Creole, Indian, South East Asian & Japanese. We ate at 3 of these restaurants for dinner and all were lovely but the meal I look forward to the most is the breakfast buffet!

Breakfast Buffet

A good selection in the morning. From continental breakfast, hot breakfast and even congee (Chinese rice porridge) & fried wonton. I can't remember what the blue drink was but I remember that it was very yummy!

Atsuko - Japanese

The sushi at the restaurant was nothing special but the dessert was tasty and beautifully presented.
I don't think it was authentic Japanese but the flavours were good. It was nice to have variation other than just sushi, tempura and teriyaki at a Japanese restaurant.

Le Manoir - French Creole cuisine

I like French cuisine so I enjoyed the food here. I know beef carpaccio isn't French but nonetheless it was fresh. Food here were small portions but all full of flavour.

The Boathouse - Light meals and grill

A very small and simple mixed grill but the meats were all grilled to perfection! I particularly enjoyed the lamb. Overlooking the panoramic view of the Indian Ocean, it's a lovely view from this restaurant indeed!

Cabanas by the pool for those hot summer days

Bar on the beach

Very large main swimming pool just outside the Manor House

The answer is YES! 
I visited prior to having Leo but you can see that it is very child friendly. I found on their website that there's a 'The Family Traditions at St Regis program' which puts emphasis on activities and thoughtful attention tailored for younger guests.

Rooms and suites can be adapted to accommodate children's beds and cots. There is The Kite Flyer Children's Club that caters for children up to the age of 12. They can also learn to kite surf at the local kite surfing club. There's a games room, mini pub with DJ and plenty of land sports to keep them busy. Surrounded by reefs, the water is always calm and so beautifully clear.

I recommend booking the half board rate which includes daily buffet breakfast and dinner.
You can book your dream holiday from here

The Le Morne peninsula is home to one of Mauritius' finest white sandy beaches, best snorkelling reefs and world class wind and kite surfing. The location is breathtaking and you can watch some amazing sunsets. 

- There's a grand staircase inspired by the Titanic in memory of the founder, John Jacob Astor IV, who died on the ship.

- The St Regis group is responsible for the Bloody Mary, originally invented in New York in 1934. Each hotel has their own version. Mauritius has 'La Belle Creole Mary' which has desiccated coconut, rum & aloe vera juice.
