When I die, I do not want to go to heaven (or, of course, the other place), I want to go to the Oberoi Hotel in Mauritius. The staff there are so happy and helpful I am sure they will make the necessary arrangements with their usual smile ! I do hope that when the time comes they will reserve my usual table at the On the Rocks restaurant, on the seashore.
I spent an excellent week with my son an wife. the service was outstanding. Very warm and pleasant staff. Delicious food. we loved the cooking activity with Chef Singh. Thanks to all the staff for this wonderfull week.
9th Visit to our beautiful hideaway. Lovely stay once again at The Oberoi, Mauritius as we came to show our friends how wonderful this place is and also celebrate my birthday. I cannot praise the staff highly enough for their never ending quest to give us the perfect holiday experience. And when you visit here, it is an experience. It differs on so many levels to a “normal” holiday hotel. Thank you so much for the special treats and surprises for my birthday and throughout the stay. It is all very much appreciated. I love you guys. Read all the reviews, consider all the options, then book your dream and arrive to the reality that is, The Oberoi, Mauritius. Warmest Regards. Mr G.
We stayed at the Oberoi at the beginning of April for a week to celebrate my girlfriend’s 50th birthday. From the moment we arrived it was clearly going to be a special stay - the greeting at the entrance with mocktails to the check in our room everything was made to give a great first impression. Beautiful touch to have a birthday cake and bottle of champagne ready for our arrival too! The villa with pool (room 206) was spectacular and had wonderful views across the beach. Every little detail seems to have been thought of in the rooms - beach bags, cards put out each night detailing the next day’s organised events and weather forecast. In terms of trips we did the following: - we hired a car for one day (through the hotel) and did all the sights in the south of the island - extinct volcano, black river gorge (spectacular view!), Hindu temple, Chamarel coloured earth and waterfall and southern beaches. It was a full day but well worth hiring a car ourselves so that we could take things at our own pace. We even found a nice local restaurant to stop at in Chamarel. - we hired our own boat for a half day trip from the hotel to swim with the dolphins (organised at the water sports beach hut). This was the highlight of our trip and our guide was expert at positioning the boat in front of the dolphins to allow us time to dive in and snorkel with them. I can’t describe just how magical this was - not just 2/3 dolphins but tens of them all swimming around you. It was expensive to have our own boat but we were told that if you go out with larger groups they only let 2 in at a time in order to ensure safety of the whole group. Certainly was worth every penny though. - we did the hotel-organised star gazing which was made all the more special by the very informative and entertaining guide. With his telescope he gave all the group an opportunity of seeing some amazing stars and Jupiter too! - we also took out the hotel’s bikes for a bit of exercise and a chance to see a bit of the north-western coast up close. The hotel provides water, back packs if necessary too - again everything thought of. It was great to see the locals enjoying themselves on a Sunday drinking and making music on the beach. I can’t fault the hotel for the thought and expertise that has gone into everything from the rooms, to the gardens, to the fabulous food (the thalis in the main restaurant were awesome!). However what makes this hotel is the exemplary service. Every team deserves special praise from the breakfast and restaurant team, to the On The Rocks team, to the bar staff (great mohito’s and g&t’s watching the sun go down), to the concierge, to the beach and garden team. It would take forever to name everyone but special thanks to Dorian who was cycling home when we were out on our cycle ride and recognised us at the side of the road with our map out. He circled round to check we were ok and knew where we were going - service outside of the norm and certainly sums up the friendly nature of all the Mauritians we met. All in all an amazing experience and a place I would go back to in a heartbeat. Thanks to all the team at the Oberoi for making this such a memorable and enjoyable stay.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Oberoi Mauritius a few weeks ago. Resort is beautiful. The staff are wonderful. They went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was perfect. Even received a cake and flowers on our special day. Had a most enjoyable and relaxed stay.
There aren't many hotels nowadays where we go around and feel like we received what we have paid for. Well this was much more than meeting expectations. Described as a hotel with 20 acres of gardens, this was really like 20 acres of pure bliss. From the moment you arrive, we were made to feel special. Check in process with Pritam was very easy and felt exclusive, the facilities and areas of the resort and its location are well explained. Nothing we asked for was ever too much trouble. All staff were extremely pleasant and friendly to deal with and were incredibly hard working. They genuinely want to go above and beyond for you. In fact it gives a bad name for some workers in this country who are only inclined to do short of what theyre paid for. We always appreciate and recognise that sometimes human errors and mistakes can be made. However during our stay this never happened-if it had I can confidently say that it would have been rectified without us having to say anything. Another credit to be given to the hotel is that the staff would refer to us by our names which gave it the extra personal and exclusive touch. We loved the hotel food and drinks-everything was freshly made at the resort. The chefs would make the effort to always come out during breakfast and meal times to ensure our meals were made to our expectations. The menu served was always very authentic and varied, made with fresh ingredients and quite frankly faultless. If there was anything that wasnt on the menu, it would still be made on request with some notice. The taxi service was easy to use, the concierge were always helpful and always made suggestions and recommendations as to what would work and be cheaper or easier for us. The taxi drivers again were also very polite and pleasant and always made us feel safe. The water sports and hotel activities were ideal and again always an enjoyable experience. We used the star gazing, rhum tasting, henna, cooking classes and all were incredibly useful and gave something for us to take back with us even if it wad insightful knowledge. All were very well organised and are highly recommended. All in all, it was a honeymoon that we will always remember and when we visit again in the future, we will be sure to return to this hotel just for the pleasant staff and personal service received. Thank you again to the chefs, Akaash, Ashwin, Conah, Aum, Chris, Neha, Natasha, Brian and his boys on the beach.
Love this place. Not our first time here and hopefully not our last. I am currently in residence and sitting at The Adults Pool writing this review so will keep it concise. It’s a beautiful hotel with beautiful people whose only desire is to make you happy. Thank you.
After long debate we decided to stay in two hotels in Mauritius of different groups to see a bit more of the Island, both the north and the south. We stayed in The Oberoi in April and had a lovely time. We had booked a Luxurious Pavilion but got an upgrade to a room with a private garden, which was very nice. We had a half board option, which was perfect. Baby: As a couple with a young baby, the wellbeing of our baby is key to our holiday. Our boy of 8 months came with us, and though some friends and other people advised against the long flight, we're happy we took him with us (how could we not). The flight of Air Mauritius was good aswel by the way. The Oberoi made sure we had all we needed: baby amenities in the room, such as a babybed with mosquito net, bodylotion, shower gel, powder, diapers, bottle sterilizer, and a baby bath with rubber duckies. Food was made to order and was never put on our bill. Room: Airy, big enough with a beautiful bathroom and dressing. We had our own private garden with sitting area, which had seaview. Everything you'd expect was there. The beds are good and the rooms are very clean. Fresh towels and bedsheets are standard every day, though we'd like to think of the environment a bit more and don't mind using bedsheets more than one night... A pillow menu is available. Roomcleaning services were very friendly and made sure everything was perfect, when our boy was sleeping, they'd come back some other time. Food: We had dinner in the main restaurant aswel as at 'On the Rocks'. Food quality and service was great. Unfortunately (but completely understandable) the more exclusive Gunpowder Room didn't allow children, so we didn't eat over there. All restaurants are a la carte, and the dishes are really good. There was always a good choice between international, creole and Indian food available. Since we had the half board option we had a three course dinner included in every restaurant, if we wanted more, it was put to our bill. Breakfast was very nice as well with a a la carte menu and a small but very complete buffet with fresh and home made products. Sports, spa and leisure: The pools were great. There is one adults only pool, which is located in a more quiet area of the hotel, and one very nice and more than big enough swimming pool closer to the main buildings. Both pools are located close to the sea. The surrounding views are beautiful! Mauritius has no private beaches so locals do come over too, but they're really nice and friendly. We actually had some nice conversations with locals. We didn't use the Spa, but the hotel had a beautiful spa with gym. The spa menu was very tempting. The hotel organizes multiple activities every day, which are included in the price. We especially liked the Rum Tasting (which was fully booked at the time so we had a private tasting later in the week at the bar), the cooking lessons in the Gunpowder Room, and the henna painting. Celebration: We booked The Oberoi as a part of our wedding anniversary. That evening we asked for and had a lovely dinner at the beach. Afterwards the hotel surprised us by having prepared a perfect bath with rose petals. Overall: We highly recommend The Oberoi as a perfect get-away destination for adults and children both. (We certainly were not the only couple with small children. But all children behaved really well.) We had a lovely stay and will come back in the future. The place is beautifully located. The hotel staff is friendly, the food is better than good. They took great care of children of all ages. The atmosphere is really nice: friendly, relaxt,... We felt welcome from the beginning (with a welcome drink) to the end when we got lunch packages instead of breakfast because we had to leave really early to catch our flight. Thanks to all the staff to make our holiday a memorable one.
We returned yesterday from 11 days at The Oberoi where we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary. This was our second visit, we also celebrated our 40th here. This time we upgraded to a villa with a pool, and what a difference that made.This hotel is a paradise, It wraps itself around you and cocoons you from all of the stresses and strains of daily life. It is beyond luxury in its attitude to service.You are protected and coddled and absolutrely nothing is too much trouble.To stay here is the closest thing to heaven you will ever experience.We shall be back. wE SHALL BE BACK!
this was my third oberoi and the best so far.. basic layout is same as other oberoi that i have been too but this one seems newer.. service fantastic as usual.. thank you Mr Pritam and few more that i can't remember their names.. the room was great as usual.. on the menu I enjoyed their Indian food.. I tried their thalli was awesome.. there are watersports available as complimentary.. we did the kayaking and boating.. snokerling was 3 times a day but we didn't have the time.. the pool is great as well.. now for the shortcomings.. the beach has too many stones and shells hence walking on it can hurt your leg but the good thing is just walk a bit further to the public beach and you can get a good sandy beach.. there are many birds and insects to accompany you for breakfast and after a while it gets irritating.. there are no nearby restaurants and hence your choice for food is a bit limited.. i personally found choices for breakfast slightly limited compared to other oberois but my Mrs didn't think so... either how I still highly recommend this oberoi and have included some pics to show why...
