A brand new Mauritian ...

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.
Christian Luthman, Select Collection Board.
Congratulations Christian!
A warm greeting by our hosts:
Davina Seeboo
Director of Sales at St Regis Mauritius &
Ramon von Schukkmann,
Director of Sales and Marketing
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.

Beautiful lobby lounge entrance

...all villas sea-facing

...with discreet and tasteful decor

and contemporary features
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.
The pool area

Our lunch for Christian was a delicious success.
