Rated 5 out of 5 by WineAdvisoryGroup St. Regis Mauritius... Redefining Paradise
In 30 years of traveling I have never experienced a welcome like I did when I arrived with my family... and that level of gracious hospitality and fabulous service has continued throughout our stay. The setting, the rooms, the restaurants, the spa... everything about the hotel is magical... a place of dreams.
When I try to think of describing what it's like here I fall short... details seem trivial. So hard to capture the feeling here in words... so forgive me, for specifics look to other reviews.
If you're looking for a place to relax, be pampered, recharge, or just escape reality... the St. Regis Mauritius is the perfect place. The only problem? Like me... you'll never want to leave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SarahRene Perfect stay, wonderful resort
We had a really great time during our two weeks stay at the resort, which is quite likely located in one of the most beautiful places of the island.
All our expectations were exceeded - our room had a wonderful view on the ocean, service was divine in all respects, the variety and quality of food and beverages was always outstanding, the music acts at the 1904 bar were superb.
Concierge-Service was a remarkable assistance in planning our trips around the island.
Finally, we want to say a special thank you to Kishan, Priscilla, Big G, amongst many others, not to forget the private pool staff, that made our stay even more enjoyable!
We wish you all the best and hope to come back to Le Morne real soon!
Warm regards from Germany,
Sarah & René

Rated 5 out of 5 by Richy76 The only five star to stay at......
We recently got back from the st Regis, As we normally stay on the east coast we heard great things about this hotel. We weren't let down! The service, food and attention to detail is by far the best experienced in mauritius. The kids club by far the best against other hotels in its class, and the facility's first class. Here a some of the highlights., the chefs table amazing experience. The simple India restaurant , first class well omits way to gaining a Michelin star. The Japanese restaurant. You would think that you are in Japan . The dolphins trip is a must and if you have family its a once in life time trip.
The butler service is like no other. Those guys really over deliver. This hotel is young in staff and new to the scene in Maurititus , but we can categorically recommend the st Regis Mauritius. No need to go anywhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WA41 fantastic break
We recently spent a wonderful holiday at the St Regis Mauritius. We have been lucky enough to stay at many of the top hotels in Mauritius but think the St Regis is currently the best on the island due to the staff, the location and the fact that the property is brand new. Two highlights were: the room (a St Regis suite which was huge and had a stunning view) and the food (the meal at the Chef's Table was one of the best we have ever had, Gordon Ramsay et al included). The kids' club and teen room were also excellent. In summary, we could not fault the hotel and would recommend it without hesitation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ronya Disappointing Stay
My wife and I were very disappointed with our stay at the St. Regis Mauritius. It is a beautiful property and setting. The staff is professional and gracious.
However, there were just too many small errors and disappointments during our stay. On our first morning, our fire alarm went off at 6:15 am and again at 6:30 am. When we called the front desk for information, we got a fast busy signal. The Butler Deck didn't answer. We later heard it was an engineering problem that affected all rooms. After traveling half way around the world (literally) to visit Mauritius and the St. Regis, it wasn't how or when we planned to wake up on our first morning. It was disappointing that the hotel made no effort to explain or apologize for the rude awakening. It was disturbing that the hotel couldn't respond properly to a self-inflicted emergency.
The restaurants were only OK. The restaurants were not nearly as good as meals we've enjoyed recently at other St. Regis properties. In fact, almost all of the meals we had in Cape Town and the winelands in South Africa on this trip were superior and much less expensive than those at the St. Regis Mauritius. The St. Regis wine list was very limited, with perhaps 3 dozen bottles. There were only two pinot noirs, including a South African pinot for $235. The least expensive bottle was a $75 Sauvignon Blanc.
The resort is very family friendly. But, in our case, we were looking for a peaceful beach vacation, which this stay was not. At least half of the guests were families and, not surprisingly, kids are loud when they are at the pool and beach. On more than one occasion, young children interrupted romantic dinners with outbursts.
Unfortunately, we won't return to this St. Regis. It will give us second thoughts about other St. Regis properties.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Exemplary SPG property located on one of the most pristine beaches in the Indian Ocean. It really doesn’t get much better than the St. Regis Mauritius.
SPG RECOGNITION: Excellent. We booked using Cash & Points and used our Suite Night Awards and were confirmed into a St. Regis Suite right on the beach.
THE ROOM: Large bedroom with sliding glass doors which lead to a large covered patio overlooking the sea. The patio was spectacular! The outdoor furniture had large, overstuffed cushions which were super comfortable. Loved having morning coffee brought to the room by the butler and then sitting on our patio and just listening to the ocean.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: Each. And. Every. Thing! Butler service was top notch. Traditionally, we don’t use the butler service too often….but on this stay we did! They can pretty much help you with anything you want. We had our butler stock our room with their fresh hibiscus tea daily. Definitely recommend this! Also, be sure to take advantage of the complementary watersports! We would take the boat out daily to go scuba diving, waterskiing, etc. We even tried windsurfing…and found out that it was a LOT harder than it looked from the shore. Ha! All complementary. Highly recommended. The breakfast buffet is top notch. Loved the miniature French press they’d bring to the table. I’m going to have to track this down and order one. Also, the Boathouse restaurant has an amazing kitchen. Seafood was great!
DID NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS: None. It was a fantastic stay! Don’t forget your sunscreen. It’s expensive in Mauritius ($60 - $75 USD)!

We had the most amazing stay at the St Regis.
We stayed for a week for our baby moon and really enjoyed it. We travel a lot for work in various luxurious hotels around the world but were amazed by the St Regis (I am a photographer and my boyfriend is creative director in advertising). Every single detail is being thought of for you to enjoy your stay and even more. It's better than you could wish for.
The quality of service is remarkable. Staff will do anything to make you happy without you noticing them. It makes you want to stay indefinitely on the island and in the hotel (do you have a spare room for a few years please?).
There is peacefulness on the island that you don't find anywhere else. And it seemed that even if you don't leave your deck chair in the sun you get that mix of culture and a taste of the island.
Food in any of the restaurants was delicious and at a very high standard quality.
We had Japanese, Thai , French cuisine...I dream of some food I has there that I wish I could taste them again.
I have to mention that breakfast is probably the best we have ever had. What a difficult task to make a breakfast that will be remembered. Compliments to the chef.
The hotel is located on one of the most beautiful white sand beach of the island.
A plus for my boyfriend, it also happens to be located right by the main kite spot. What more do you want than waking up facing One eye and the Indian Ocean (that's what he said).
We also did the trip to see the wild dolphins. It was unbelievable. The captain managed to get me to swim with about 10 dolphins! They were no less than 50 centimeters from me. It was the most beautiful experience. Not to mention the boat we were on. For connoisseurs, it's a Bennington boat. It's the most luxurious and comfortable boat. I felt like a princess on it.
I would never have enough words to describe how I felt during this 5 days at the St Regis. My only regret is that it went too fast. I wish I was still there.
I will definitely come back.
Special thanks to our butlers (what an amazing concept), the concierges who gave us great tips for our day trip inside the island, the chefs, the captain, the barmaid at bar 1904 (who made me the most delicious drink with aloe vera), Ronan for making this holiday possible, Bernard for the sake. Everyone we encountered was delightful. I wish you all well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DEF18 A Dream Vacation
My wife and I spent recently spent 6 nights at this property and had the vacation of a lifetime. To start, the setting and facilities at this St. Regis are spectacular. You are right on the beach and resort is spread out enough that you can be secluded or in the mix depending on what you want to do. The staff is incredibly helpful and attentive. The restaurants are all great, but make sure you eat at Simply India. I would definitely go back with our children as the hotel has a kids club with activities and a lot to offer. I wish I were back on the couches on the beach sipping a drink and watching the sun set. Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing vacation.
