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.
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 island’s African and Asian heritage. So do the ebony sculptures and headboards, woven from the sugarcane leaf, in the guest rooms.
The Oberoi Beach Resort Mauritius has seventy-one Pavilions and Villas. The Pavilions are grouped 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 the uninterrupted view from lawn to the ocean.
The Royal Villas are the most decadent option: set within large tropical gardens, they come with private swimming pools and thatched dining pavilions.
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.

Hidden away along the north coast, not far from the island’s vibrant capital, the chic and romantic Oberoi made our stay truly enjoyable thanks to fantastic service, great spa, and delicious cuisine.
