This tranquil, good-value resort fuses natural beauty with a cool design for a wonderful Mauritian escape.
The adults-only resort of Solana Beach Mauritius sits amid coconut and palm trees in gardens that slope down to a long narrow stretch of beach dotted with thatched umbrellas – the perfect relaxation spot.
Cinnamone is the main buffet-style restaurant with live cooking stations, while à la carte offerings include the open and airy Pomelo Restaurant with outdoor seating and Secrets Corner – an intimate dining room with a ‘dining theatre’ concept. By day, make the most of the beach service and enjoy a fresh coconut water or fruit punch delivered to your sun lounger. By night, head to the vast Indigo Bar for creative cocktails and chill out to the sounds of a live band or DJ. If you’re seeking activities, free watersports at the boathouse include windsurfing, pedal boats and canoes, and on land there’s tennis and volleyball.
Rooms are light and airy, and housed in two-storey buildings with light wood, splashes of colour and a blackboard – perfect for visually working out the best way to spend your days! They are all close to the beach and have sea views, and some feature interesting pieces of artwork. Most of the rooms here are Superior Rooms, which have warm colours, a slate floor and a terrace. Deluxe Rooms are more spacious and can accommodate three adults, Prestige Rooms have a wooden floor, espresso machine and four-poster bed, and Junior Suites have a whirlpool bath.
