The St. Regis Mauritius Resort is nestled on the legendary Le Morne peninsula at the far southwestern tip of the island of Mauritius. Overlooking sparking white sand beaches and a pristine turquoise lagoon, the peninsula was added to the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 2008. Nearby, myriad caves, steep slopes, rare plants—including the Mandrinette and Trochetia boutoniana—and a singular 500-metre-high basaltic rock define the surrounding area’s dramatic natural beauty. Additional outdoor destinations include Black River Gorges National Park, La Vanille Crocodile and Casela Parks, and the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden.
Aside from the captivating scenery, consistent offshore breezes make the area a top spot for kite flying or kite surfing. The translucent waters also draw visitors and locals in search of ocean activities ranging from big game fishing, undersea walking, and swimming with dolphins to sailing, snorkelling, diving, and more. For an extremely memorable adventure, there are helicopter tours and skydiving adventures. A day trip to the nearby Île aux Cerfs, meanwhile, reveals some of the region’s most breathtaking beaches, while just 20 minutes away Tamarina Golf Course presents the island’s most pristine golfing experience.
Supplementary enriching cultural activities include visits to the village of Charmarel or Aapravasi Ghat monument and shopping at either the Bagatelle Mall of Mauritius (45 kilometres away) or Cacavella Shopping village (25 kilometres away). A tour of the Chamarel Rum Factory provides insight into the island’s rich history while horseback riding and four-wheeling add to the array of endless recreation options.
