One&Only Mauritius Jan 30, 2011
The first Five star Hotel in the Island of Mauritius opened way back 1975.. Noticed the O&O Gong ceremony upon arrival The general manager was there to greet us... A very elegant setting with two restaurants from Michelin star chefs! Superb service unbeatable location and great dinning experience. Depending on your room category you will be provided with a butler service we had two butlers assigned in our villa Very on time personalized service. They provide sunset cocktails in their carefully made list of drinks. Breakfast buffet is like one kilometer it is always great to have live cooking and eggs stations every morning..
They have different activities, check them out in their activity menu provided in your room. One thing that I really wanted but wasn't able to do is the 30minute Helicopter ride I could ave taken photos up in the air!. You can also hire the Hotel Cars if you want to go to other ares in Mauritius they will provide a driver to drive you around!. Most of the staff are Locals the guest relations officers can speak many languages which is very helpful. they have an internet room if you want to check emails. And a nice boutique.
Try their spa and nail studios! we were there during the Mauritian Winter so It was a bit cold I wasn't able to swim in the Indian Ocean but all in all it was a fantastic experience. If you are looking for a classic and elegant ambiance Le Saint Geran is the right place for you!
