The north-west coast of Mauritius harbours powdery white sand beaches, turquoise lagoons and groves of swaying palms. It’s also home to the luxurious Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa, an all-suite hotel within 35 hectares of tropical Mauritian gardens.
Isabel is here to help give you the inside track.
Guest accommodation is in chalet-style suites, which are built in crescents surrounding several large swimming pools - which are in addition to the main hotel pool. The spacious suites are all modern in design, with separate lounge areas, open showers, and a private terrace or balcony. For a little extra luxury, Beachfront Suites are just steps from the sandy bay and have private swimming pools. While the Villas are scattered around the tropical gardens, offer even more privacy and seclusion, and also have private swimming pools.
Six restaurants and bars ensure guests have plenty of dining choice at Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa. From the main poolside restaurant L'Oasis (complete with walk in wine cellar), to the open show kitchen of Thai restaurant Blue Tiger, and the fresh seafood menu at beachside Le Deck, there is something to suit every taste and occasion.
For relaxation, the Clarins Spa is a tranquil spot, with 21 treatment 'cabins', a pool, sauna and hammam surrounding ponds and palm trees. Activity wise, Trou Aux Biches has six floodlit tennis courts, and can offer table tennis, beach volleyball and mountain biking. There are also two kids clubs; one for ages 3 - 12, and one for the teens. Given its location on one of the largest beaches on the island, this is the perfect spot for watersports, including waterskiing, windsurfing, kayaking, and sailing. There's also a dive centre on site, offering leisure dives as well as scuba courses, and deep sea fishing excursions can also be arranged with specialist local operators.
