Rated 5 out of 5 by JetSetters Amazing beachfront location and design
The hotel is very well designed and the colonial architecture blends into the environment very well. It is far from commercial and most of the rooms are very close to the beach (just remember to bring your coral shoes as it is not sandy once you get in the sea). Lots of beachfront and great ambiance at the bars and restaurants. Don't hesitate to communicate with the management as they are very warm and extremely accommodating. Kite surfing very unique and a must do for thrill seekers. Great amenities!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdp24 Beautiful hotel with great features
The beach, the location at the foothills of Le Morne and the beautiful colonial architecture, makes this hotel an idyllic escape. Great place to relax and the spa tempts one to rejuvenate. The team is friendly and professional, the services and facilities meet all needs for a relaxing break. The colonial suite is very spaciaous and with tasteful decor. The only suggestion would be to include tea making facilities in the minibar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by al208 Wonderful experience
The Js Beachfront was beautiful and comfortable. The service starting from the reception, concierge, butler and the restaurants was professionally excellent with the extra human and very personal touch. The food was very good and especially the boathouse was a very beautiful place to unwind. The beach service was outstanding and we felt all the time like in paradise. We will go back for sure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NewMrsE Great Hotel with some room for improvement
The St Regis Mauritius is a beautifully property that has impeccable landscaping, a beautiful pool and wonderful restaurants. We made the hotel the final stop on our honeymoon and enjoyed three days relaxing at the pool and on our amazing private terrace. I was a little disappointed, however, that the hotel didn't really do anything special for our honeymoon. I don't generally expect anything for free, but the three other hotels we stayed at during the trip all recognized it in some way, whether with a bottle of wine or champagne, a little welcome gift, etc. We booked a romantic (and quite expensive) private dinner on the hotel jetty, which would have been an excellent way for the hotel to acknowledge our special occasion with something as small as a complimentary glass of champagne. To be fair, our butler put some rose petals on our bed that eventing, but coming off of other hotels doing a little more, I have to say that this left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. Some other thoughts:
- Room was lovely and the breakfast was fabulous!
- Spa was great. I really enjoyed my treatment there.
- We ate at the Floating Market, Le Manoir and our private dinner (chef was wonderful about customizing a menu for us) - all excellent
- For a luxury hotel (and a new one at that), the towels and robes in the rooms didn't meet expectations. They were thin, pilled and often stained.
- The staff was wonderful about making us aware of options and helping us book things prior to our trip. It would have been helpful to have all of the dinners/activities we discussed in the months leading up to the trip printed out an in our room upon arrival.
All in all, it was a wonderful experience with just a few things we thought could be improved upon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rico27 Paradise found!
Everyone at this luxurious and sophisticated beach resort took a genuine interest in our well being and made us feel very welcome from the start, from Rocco the GM through to the front desk staff including Sandrine, manager Kriss, butlers Amar & Avi, all the way to the buggy drivers, room service delivery guy (who's name I forgot but who was excellent) and cleaning & maintenance staff, we were always greeted warmly and sincerely. Stéphane the chef welcomed our feedback and the breakfast team were always friendly and happy to meet our every need! Stephánia at breakfast custom-blended any fresh fruit and veg into the juice we wanted and put a smile on our faces with her warm and bubbly personality. Others such as Vikram made sure things ran smoothly by swiftly & professionally dealing with any request we had, and at times even reading our needs. The resort has its own cinema privé showing the latest movies in comfortable lazyboy leather reclining seats! This was such a treat! Thanks to Jonathan who ran it and took care of us! There is also a fully stocked library, beach water-sports facilities and much more. Overall I rate it as one of the most memorable St Regis I've had the pleasure to stay at. They manage to offer the exceptional quality and service standards that you would normally expect to only find in an big city urban environment, in a relatively remote, quiet corner of one of the most beautiful subtropical islands in the world. The spiritually & historically significant mountain backdrop of Le Morne Brabant, amazing nature, flora & fauna, the surrounding turquoise waters all provide the most incredible and magical location for this truly world class resort. Can't wait to return one day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sgallian Great Kid's Club, perfect location for kiters and their family
Ideally located resort: very close to La Pointe, where you can launch your kite, and at the same time sheltered from the wind, so other members of the family can enjoy their stay too. Lot of water activities included, though we did not have time to enjoy them, I preferred to go kiteboarding. The kid's club is a lifesaver for those with kid, very well furnished, and great staff who is very skilled with children. Restaurants were good, and every night there was live music (and quite good too!) at the main bar. Had little time to enjoy the beach, but it was really relaxing, with beautiful view. Staff is helpful and friendly. 2nd time we stayed there, and will likely do so again...
