A winning combination. We visited the brand new St Regis Mauritius Resort, looked over the elegant property, and celebrated the 60th birthday of a treasured board member.

The St Regis chain’s newest resort lies on the Le Morne peninsula on a dazzling beach, not far from Dinarobin and Paradis. It opened on 1 November, bringing with it the elite St Regis style and famed butler service.
The hotel combines elegant colonial design with discreet and tasteful décor. All the rooms, villas and suites (a total of 172) face the Indian Ocean, with lovely interiors and views.

In the gardens under the rugged Le Morne mountain they have kept lots of the original old trees…
|…including this banyan tree.|
The palms, of course, will only get taller with time.
|...also with sea views.|
