Outrigger Mauritius Resort & Spa Bel Ombre Reviews
Affordable and Wonderful Sep 17, 2014
I was here a few months ago for a week, and it was an amazing experience.
Cost - Affordable. For a five star, the cost was amazing. You can even say food prices compete with that sold locally. I am an avid sheesha smoker and it was very affordable. The view was beautiful. 5 minute walk from the beach (literally) and very scenic locations to take beautiful photographs. Breakfast + Dinner inclusive, desserts were amazing and variety was great.
Rooms - Rooms were very well cleaned and maintained. There was a massive tub in my room, land at the back, beautiful view in the front to sit down and relax. Again, the COST for a week for this treatment, amazing.
Competition - Tamassa resort is just next door. However, they only have breakfast inclusive (and not breakfast & dinner as in Outrigger). Also, if you want to sit there outside, so many people compete for chairs it can feel cramped. For the slight additional cost, you experience much better at the Outrigger whereby you can get beautiful locations to sit and no need to compete with anybody.
Location - Now this can be an issue as it is quite a distance from Port Louise (2-3 hours driving). But time passes quickly if you have family in the car, and for the scenery you get at Outrigger, it's well worth it.
Go here during the low peak as during high peak season, prices double and you don't want that.
Personally speaking coming from Kenya, the cost for us inclusive of flight tickets was slightly above 1K USD and that's amazing. Book with an agent coming from outside, again LOW SEASON, so you get good amazing affordable rates. The weather's always great so it doesn't matter when you come. And tons of activities to do.
