St. Regis has made its foray into Africa with the debut of the St. Regis Mauritius Resort, making this the 30th St. Regis hotel in the world.
We hear the resort, which sits on the southwestern tip of Mauritius, has both natural beach and Le Morne Brabant Mountain views. There are 172 guest rooms and suites, ranging from 700 to 2,300 square feet, all with terraces and Indian Ocean views.
A-listers and glitterati alike will flip over the St. Regis Villa, which has its own private entrance, four bedrooms with private pools and gardens, entertainment and dining areas, an infinity pool, a bar and a private spa treatment room.
Signature restaurant Simply India serves up a fine dining experiences overseen by Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar. Six other distinct dining experiences range from Le Manoir Dining Room, serving French and Mauritian cuisine, to Floating Market, a Modern Asian dining experience, and The Boathouse Bar & Grill for casual oceanfront dining. The 1904 Bar serves rum cocktails and vintage whiskeys.
A 22,730-square-foot Iridium Spa beckons travelers to take part in the full-service salon, relaxation lounge, jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms. Nice touch: The 12 treatment rooms have ocean views.
