Mauritian Hospitality at its bestPosted Apr 28, 2014
Pros: Aside from the surroundings, it is definitely the highly trained staff that make this such an enjoyable experience - nothing is too much trouble.
Cons: It would be nice to see more traditional Mauritian Foods on the menus, to give visitors a total Mauritian experience.
Location: Access to the activities around the Island are easily accessed with Hire car or Taxi. The New Motorway linking with the North only improves this.
Making frequent visits to Mauritius to visit family we know the Island well and a variety of Hotels. We chose The Residence for a 'week of total relaxation' and were not disappointed. As is typical of Mauritius we were greeted with a warm smiles and the best of welcomes. The ambiance of the Hotel reflects a Colonial past, with an array of historical photographic prints on the walls which give an insight into the countries past, beautiful public spaces and awe inspiring views. As you walk around the hotel every staff member you meet greets you with a traditional Namaste (palms together in greeting), which adds to the sense of peace and calm. The facilities are excellent, a lovely pool area, beautifully maintained gardens and excellent restaurants, we particularly enjoyed our visits to 'The Plantation' situated away from the main Hotel in the gardens overlooking the sea. The Spa facilities were excellent and a must to enhance the overall experience.
