This elegant and colonial-style resort has a beautiful beach-front setting and a focus on wellbeing.

With refined and refreshed old-world décor and an emphasis on wellness, this resort has a welcoming ambience and gives you personalised service. Crossed by a tranquil river and fronted by a white-sand beach and vibrant lagoon the natural setting couldn’t be any better. Add to this a wide variety of activities – both on the water and in the Domaine – and you have a picture-perfect setting for a tropical retreat.

Dining at Le Telfair is a pleasure and there are three restaurants and a lounge onsite. The main restaurant, Annabella’s, features a buffet breakfast and themed a la carte dinner menus as well as providing a variety of healthy dishes which reflect the focus on wellbeing. The al fresco Le Palmier pool and beach restaurant has always been a popular location for lunch and it’s now open for dinner making it the perfect spot to dine under the stars. Gin’ja is the top table at Le Telfair and it specialises in flavoursome Asian cuisine. Guests can also dine at Le Château de Bel Ombre, the Golf Club Restaurant and Bar, C Beach Club and the restaurants at Heritage Awali. And if you opt for the Gourmet Bliss all-inclusive upgrade, which we highly recommend, your meals will be included at these restaurants (depending on restaurant opening times).

The wonderfully refurbished butler-serviced suites are located in two-storey villas dotted around the resort and have a beautifully light, plantation house style with white-washed walls and dark wood furniture. The Deluxe Suite Garden View overlook the resort’s tropical gardens while guests in the Seaview Suites and Deluxe Beach Front Suite from can enjoy views of the Indian Ocean from their balcony. It’s well worth upgrading to the Junior or Senior Suites for a little extra room as they feature a living area or room respectively.

Domaine de Bel Ombre
In a incredible setting between the Indian Ocean and the lush mountainous interior of southern Mauritius, sits the spectacular Domaine de Bel Ombre. This former sugar estate covers over 2500 beautiful acres, all centred on the 19th-Century Le Chateau de Bel Ombre, now one of the finest gourmet restaurants on the island.

The estate is home to the two separate resorts of Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort and Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort, alongside a vast nature reserve and a host of facilities which include a lively beach club and the prestigious Heritage Golf Club.

While each resort has its own facilities that are exclusively for the use of its own guests, everyone can make the most of the shared facilities and activities on offer throughout the domaine. A favourite spot has got to be the C Beach Club, a chic venue set right on the beach. Here you’ll find the Cabana boathouse which offers a range of water and land sports; the restaurants Coast and Cyan; and The Chill lounge bar, the perfect spot for a sundowner.
