The famously sun-drenched west coast of Mauritius is the setting for this superb four-star suite hotel. Newly renovated in 2014, Sands Suites Resort & Spa benefits from a stunning coastal position upon one of the island’s most beautiful stretches of beach at Flic en Flac. Here the tranquil Tamarin Bay lagoon, turquoise ocean and iconic Le Morne peninsula rock formation combine in a sweep of classic tropical scenery.
Mauritius is known for its diverse culture and character and it’s this local touch that defines the atmosphere at Sands Suites Resort & Spa. Genuine peace and quiet, an authentic welcome and dutiful service are second nature at this secluded holiday escape. Live evening music at the Dolphin Bar gives a real sense of this unique cultural heritage, as does the variety of tantalising dishes served across four fantastic restaurants.
The property seems effortlessly imbued with a sense of island beauty – architecture, interior design and soft furnishings all reflective of its lush, colourful surroundings. Rest and relaxation come naturally at Sands Suites Resort & Spa where the distinctly boutique feel is echoed in the chic aesthetic and laidback daily tempo. A visit to the sublime spa, a dip in the glistening infinity pool or a browse in the well-stocked library allows guests to maintain this lazy pace, while a full programme of land and water activities – including excellent PADI-certified diving and dolphin-spotting excursions – mean adventure is never far away.
Sands Spa services include: Four massage & treatment rooms (two couple rooms); sauna & Hammam (free of charge); Jacuzzi; hairdresser with beauty parlour.
Please note: Gentlemen are advised to wear long trousers and closed shoes for dinner, in keeping with the universal dress code for hotels in Mauritius.
