Set in 20 acres of sub-tropical gardens along a sparkling beachfront with tall, swaying palms, the Oberoi Mauritius’ thatched buildings and understated elegance stand out thanks to the harmony of architecture and the surrounding nature.
For the Oberoi project, the American landscaper Bill Bensley paired with a well-known Thai architect Lek Bunnag. They excelled at creating an exclusive, stylish, and romantic resort that embraces the insular charm of Mauritius.
In harmony with nature
Exotic bushes, trees and flowers encompass the hotel villas and premises—with volcanic boulders dotted around the landscaped gardens. The buildings blend in, and the architecture of tall, thatched roofs reflects the the island’s African and Asian heritage—and so do ebony sculptures and headboards, woven from sugarcane leaf.
There are seventy-one Pavilions and Villas. The Pavilions are grouped together in single-floor clusters, while the freestanding villas are set within their own walled gardens. Inside, subtle tones dominate the décor, and the rooms feature enormous four-poster beds, sunken marble baths and uninterrupted view from lawn to ocean.
The Royal Villas are the most decadent option: set within their own generous tropical gardens, they come with large private swimming pools and thatched dining pavilions.
Dining and spa
There are two restaurants at Oberoi. One has the European, Oriental and Creole dishes on the menu, the other serves light lunch by the pool and fusion cuisine in the evening. The main restaurant features a soaring palm-thatched roof and ensures great views of the Indian Ocean.
Spa junkies will find The Spa more than satisfactory. It’s an exclusive sanctuary with all the state-of-the-art treatments on the menu, some drawing from local traditions, like the fresh coconut massage.
