The Sands Suites Resort & Spa is nestled on the wild, west coast of Mauritius at Wolmar, close to Flic en Flac and Tamarin, two animated seaside villages. This boutique hotel of 91 rooms – all with sea views – has established itself as a benchmark in luxury. The reception you receive from the Sands’ warm and knowledgeable staff will set the tone for your holidays.
It is while lying in your lounger on the beach that you will become fully aware of the spectacular views of the nearby Rempart Mountain and the long western coastline stretching all the way to Le Morne. At sunset, the sky is streaked with red, pink, orange and even purple. Between a luxuriating massage at the Sands Spa and a bike ride amongst the lush surrounding vegetation, there will be time to sit at the beach restaurant, PinkPepperCorn, in the shade of two Coqueluches trees and a Pink Pepper bush. Otherwise, opt for Tamarind Terrace, the main restaurant, or Spices, which serves spicy cuisine.
The rooms, bathed in tones of beige and taupe are tinged in vibrant colours – its wood furniture contrasting with the fuchsia, orange or blue-green silk pillow cases and bed throws. Experience this confidential address that offers you luxury and tranquillity, all in one.
