Reopened in 2019 after a complete reimagining, popular Preskil is a modern resort on a private peninsula.
One of our most popular Mauritius resorts has gone through a huge transformation into a cool and contemporary ‘island’ retreat. Obviously retaining same incredible private-peninsula setting, the views out towards the nature reserve island of Ile aux Aigrettes, the Lion Mountain and Blue Bay Marine Park are the same. Otherwise it’s all change at Preskil. There’s a brand new entrance which has been designed to make you feel as if you’ve arrived somewhere special, and there are charming yet chic thatched buildings dotted around the grounds that house a couple of the restaurants bars, the boutique and the spa.
One of the real highlights of the resort is the selection of watersports that are available, many of which are included in the price of your holiday. It’s likely that you’re going to want to make the most of the clear-water lagoon and you can waterski, windsurf, snorkel, sail and canoe to your heart’s content. There are some aquatic activities that are available for a supplement such as diving, deep sea fishing, catamaran cruises and glass-bottom boat cruises in the Blue Bay Marine Park. There are three dining options to choose from including a buffet restaurant, a Mediterranean venue and a delightful beachside eatery which makes the most of those much-loved coastal vistas.
One of the biggest changes following the renovation is the style of the spacious rooms. We love the beach chic vibe with light wood and bamboo accents. Pops of coastal colours are added thanks to the soft furnishings. As well as Superior and Deluxe Rooms there are Garden Family Rooms and Deluxe Family Rooms that consist of two separate but interconnecting rooms. These larger accommodations are great if you are travelling with children 17 years or under. Our favourite rooms are definitely the first-floor Junior Suites with their bamboo pitched roofs and view over the lagoon towards île aux Aigrettes or Lion Mountain. They have a really spacious feel and a loft-style design.
On the south-eastern coast, close to the historic village of Mahébourg and the airport but largely undisturbed by noise
