Westin Turtle Bay Resort, Mauritius

A swanky new resort has just opened on the famous white sandy beaches of Mauritius. Situated on 25 acres edged by sugar cane fields, the Westin Turtle Bay Resort and Spa overlooks an important marine nature park (one of only two on the island of Mauritius). Just offshore, the reef’s coral is teeming with indigenous fish like grouper, lion fish, star fish, and angel fish—ideal for snorkeling.

The design aesthetic takes its inspiration from this majestic natural setting with expansive teak decks and lava rock combined with contemporary décor. The 190 guest rooms come with balconies, the signature Heavenly Bed and Bath, and all the latest technology. Facilities run the gamut from outdoor pools and water sports to the Heavenly Spa and Gym. In addition to leisure clientele, the resort is marketing itself as a venue for destination weddings and small incentive meetings.
