What's Hot

  • Golfers will revel in the challenge of the 18 Hole Ernie Els designed course!
  • Some of the nicest rooms/villas on the island - spacious and extremely luxurious! The Villas which vary in size will be great for families looking for a home from home type holiday
  • Choice of three beaches; one of which is a wild beach, giving lots of space and variety
  • Outdoor showers. Need we say more?

What's Not

  • Beaches not great in quality as they have had to ship sand in - rather head over on the regular shuttles to Ile aux Cerfs if you fancy some quality beach time
  • Won't appeal to people wanting the vibe of a busy resort - this is more like a golf estate feel where people tend to stick to their own homes rather than mix in the public areas
  • No All Inclusive option, so do consider the extra expenses when doing your budgeting
Four Seasons

Four SeasonsGolfers of course will love the new 18 hole course designed by Ernie Els, which includes six stunning oceanfront holes including one of the most stunning finishing holes you’ll see anywhere!

Situated in the private Anahita Wilderness Sanctuary which stretches along four miles of uninterrupted shoreline on the east coast of Mauritius, the Four Seasons offers boundless views of blue waters and green-blanketed mountains to the rear. Unusually the resort is actually divided into two parts, some of it positioned on the main island with wooden bridges connecting to the second section on the private little island of Ile aux Chats. There are 3 beaches here – the 2 main beaches on either side of the main pool and then the “wild” beach on the other side of the island – they’re pleasant enough if not up to the standards of the very best beaches on the island (then again all of those top beaches were nabbed by the first resort developers decades ago) Having said that, if you simply have to have really picture-postcard beaches, you can always take the free boat transfer over to the nearby island of Ile aux Cerf with its various stretches of fine sand.

A major drawcard for many of the guests staying at the Four Seasons is the spectacular Ernie Els designed 18 hole championship golf course which winds delightfully through the Anahita Sanctuary, but that certainly isn’t the resort’s only attraction. For customers demanding accommodation that is both extremely luxurious as well as exceptionally spacious and private, then the Four Seasons is definitely worth considering. There are a total of 90 Pool Villas, 32 Private Residence Villas with from two to six bedrooms, and one Presidential Suite. The Pool Villas are divided into different types depending on what location and views they enjoy – Garden, Mangrove or Lagoon – but are otherwise identical in terms of size, style and facilities. They’re definitely some of the nicest rooms on the island too, each boasting a private pool, large outdoor terrace with large day bed, al fresco dining area, outdoor shower and large bath. Inside there’s wireless internet connectivity, an iPod docking station, and LCD screen television with DVD player. Design is quite minimalist yet opulent, with plenty of marble and wood lending contemporary style. Then there are the 32 Residence Villas offering from two to six bedrooms which offer the perfect space and privacy for families and groups to enjoy the resort. As well as the extra bedrooms they add a spacious living area, full kitchen, private study and exclusive garden with the added bonus of a larger private plunge pool.

If you can drag yourself away from your plunge pool there are plenty of activities to keep you busy: the water sports centre offers amongst others kite surfing, parasailing, banana boats, waterskiing, snorkelling and sailing whilst the PADI dive centre arranges trips for everyone from the novice to experienced diver. There is a fitness centre, tennis centre, walking trails and a wonderful spa, with twelve treatment rooms on stilts above the water. Golfers of course will love the new 18 hole course designed by Ernie Els, which includes six stunning oceanfront holes including one of the most stunning finishing holes you’ll see anywhere! Those just looking to relax can do so beside one of the four swimming pools, lounge on the three different beaches or borrow books, CDs and DVDs from the extensive library. There is also an extensive Kid's Club Village and entertainment programme which makes the resort extremely family friendly. Teenagers will love the Karokan teens club with the latest interactive games like Wii’s and X-Boxes, indoor and outdoor sports, pool table and computers with internet connection; they can even groove to the latest tunes at their own discothèque or be the one mixing the beat at the club’s DJ booth!

After a busy day you can relax in one of the wide choice of bars and restaurants – enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail (or after dinner cigar and cognac) at the O-Bar overlooking the lagoon and the island of Ile aux Chats. Then wander across to the adjacent steak restaurant Beau Champ where you have an indoor and outdoor terrace to choose from. Over on Ile aux Chats, Acquapazza overlooks the northern seashore and serves up a delicious selection of Italian regional dishes including many seafood choices. Bambou is a more casual dining experience, where guests can enjoy pan-Asian cuisine including a sushi bar and a teppanyaki grill.

All in all the Four Seasons delivers as a splendid choice for discerning couples, families or even larger groups. The service is outstanding, the accommodation wonderfully luxurious and private – it’s definitely a resort worth considering for top-end travellers alongside other long established gems on the island like the St Geran.
