There are plenty of possibilities for travellers planning to holiday in Mauritius but Heritage Resorts stand out as the obvious choice. The Domaine de Bel Ombre undoubtedly provides one of the most attractive settings on the island, offering every opportunity for relaxation, fine dining, golfing and other activities in the midst of more than 6,000 acres of fabulous tropical countryside, with the sea to one side and beautiful mountain vistas to the other.

Whatever guests are looking for, there are facilities and activities to meet all wishes at the Domaine de Bel Ombre’s two luxury hotels, Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort and Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort. Nature lovers can enjoy quad-bike outings, trekking and picnics, as well as guided walks in the forest or watching native birds fly through the sky above the private Frederica Nature Reserve. As for golf lovers, they have every opportunity to practice or play on one of the most delightful championship golf courses of the island, and indeed in this part of the Indian Ocean. Hotel guests have free and unlimited access and can even enjoy night golf at the Heritage Golf Club, where a Golf Pro is also available to give lessons.
The two resorts both offer an amazing range of dining possibilities, with no less than twelve restaurants to choose from – and eight bars as well. Guests have a nice variety of options from Seven Colours – an inspired cuisine from the Chef’s Table at Heritage Le Telfair and a memorable culinary experience in the African setting of Heritage Awali, all prepared with fresh ingredients coming straight from the estate. There are also the added attractions of rum-tasting sessions and tasty snacks galore.
To help holidays go with a swing, Heritage Resorts organises a large range of activities, including dolphin watching, yoga and tai chi classes, sessions with a personal trainer, kite-surfing, speedminton on the beach, and fishing and other nautical activities. Guests can also enjoy beach parties or Sunday brunch at the C Beach Club, star gazing, film shows on the beach, jazz, sega and Africa nights, pool and petanque. With a 5,000-square-metre spa, relaxation and well-being are more than well-catered for. To feel really fantastic, guests can take advantage of a week-long well-being programme and special offers on Youniques products at Seven Colours, the first and only 100% Mauritian marque of spa.
Heritage Resorts also takes good care of youngsters, who can have plenty of fun at their own club, Timomo & Friends, where they can learn more about cooking and how to fish, try their hand at golf, enjoy spa treatments adapted specially for them or go out hunting for crabs. The list of activities is long, but there is already enough to look forward to settle for a couple of weeks at Heritage Resorts!
