What's Hot

  • Love this beach! 2 kilometers of beautiful soft sand and gorgeous blue water with a protective coral reef for great swimming in warmish water
  • Golf at Bel Ombre - one of the finest and most user friendly layouts on the island that's a pleasure for all level handicaps to play
  • The sophistication of this resort lends itself nicely to honeymooners and couples looking for a bit more tranquility

What's Not

  • Colonial, formal style may not be what everyone is looking for in their holiday ambiance
  • Although there is a great kids club, the resort is much more of a sophisticated environment and may not suit families with highly energetic children

Named after Charles Telfair, a famous Irish naturalist who lived in the area in the 19th century, Le Telfair has been inspired by and lovingly developed on the site of the former sugar plantation estate of Bel Ombre. Whilst it lies right next door to its sister resort, the African accented Heritage Awali, the Heritage Le Telfair adopts a totally different style all of its own with architecture and décor that takes its inspiration from the grand colonial sugar estate mansions that were built across the island in times long past – the architecture here is very classy and quite ornately colonial without a thatched roof in sight! This part of the island is quiet and peaceful, especially compared to the busyness and bustle of the north of the island, and the site itself is stunning - set amongst wonderful tropical gardens through which the Citronniers river flows, Le Telfair nestles breathtakingly between the dreamy turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and the lush green slopes of the new championship golf course at the foot of a mountain.

On arriving at Le Telfair, the huge reception area is a precursor to the grandeur that flows through the grounds with peaceful lily ponds and fountains flowing under an avenue of palms that lead to the large swimming pool and fine white sands of the beach beyond. The 158 rooms and suites are clustered together in villas dotted through the grounds. The entry level rooms are the 128 Superior Rooms, generously sized at between 54 and 62 m2, of which just over half have a sea view. The standard Superior rooms generally face the river which flows through the property – whilst this is a quite attractive outlook, we would probably still advise you to pay the small increase and go instead for one of the Superior sea view rooms. Next level up are the 20 Junior Suites - unlike the Superiors which can accommodate 2 children, these are for 2 adults only (even though they’re bigger at 81 m2) and boast king size four poster beds, a hexagonal lounge area and a large antique type bath in the centre of the bathroom – they even have their own butler service. If your budget allows these would definitely be an incredible choice for honeymooners! Finally there are the 8 Senior Suites (of 102 m2) and 2 gorgeous Ocean Suites (104 m2) which include a lounge and a dining area and are also able to accommodate a child - again there is butler service for the room.

There is no shortage of facilities here, from golf on the impressive 18-hole Peter Matkovitch championship golf course to the temple of pampering that is the excellent Seven Colours Spa, not to mention the impressive children's club with its own swimming pool complete with mini sun-loungers. All the usual extensive selection of land and watersports is available including an ATP tennis centre and kite surfing and waterskiing. Whilst Le Telfair does welcome children and provides incredible facilities for children of all ages, the quiet and sophisticated ambience of the hotel means that families with young kids in particular would probably feel more comfortable at the sister resort next door the Heritage Awali. That said, teenagers (especially keen golfers) are likely to love Le Telfair where they can be kept active with loads of organised activities, land and water sports and even things like Mauritian style parties on the beach complete with bonfires and sega music. They’re also likely to love the newest innovation here – the new C Beach Club designed to appeal to all ages - as well as a couple of casual but chic restaurants and bars, the C Beach Club also boasts the Cabana boathouse and the Cool teens club complete with a bunch of high tech goodies to keep them amused.

After a busy day in the sun (or a relaxing one – you choose!) there’s a variety of restaurants and bars on offer: the main restaurant, Annabella’s, is laid out over four floors and affords stunning views of the sea, mountains and river. Guests can select from the extensive selection or even create original dishes they might like to try after a discussion with the executive chef; Gin’ja which specializes in seafood and pan-Asian cuisine is situated on the powdery white sand of the beach next to the lagoon or you could also try Le Palmier, located between beach and pool, which offers light Mediterranean style cuisine influenced by the flavours of open wood fired cooking. Or for a very special romantic experience, treat yourself to dinner at Le Château de Bel Ombre, the estate’s original 19th century manor house. And if that isn’t enough choice you can also pop next door to the Hertitage Awali and eat at any of their exciting restaurants. After dinner, guests can gather in comfortable armchairs for a night cap and cigar in the very elegant Cavendish bar and lounge whilst relaxing to the sounds of a live band performing on the stage overlooking the river. An open air dance floor then invites a more lively close to the evening!
