Against the dramatic backdrop of the UNESCO site of Le Morne Brabante, sits Paradis Beachcomber on more than three miles of white sand fringing an emerald lagoon. The clue is in the name! Low slung traditional thatched villas are dotted along the shore and around the sprawling 400 acre peninsula, with the Indian Ocean glittering all around. We love the feeling of space here – you could be on a private island. And it’s a resort packed with things to do. Whilst the calm azure waters beckon, golfers can indulge in one of the most spectacular courses we have ever seen. In true Mauritian style, welcoming and ever attentive staff make you feel you live here from the moment you arrive. Whether you’re here for a quiet romantic week away, or as a family, Paradis truly is an Indian Ocean haven.
Cool and spacious, the rooms and suites are simply furnished and decorated in earthy colours, with the focus very much on the view of the ocean. They all have terraces or balconies and exceptionally large bathrooms. The Ocean Rooms look out over the lagoon and the mountains beyond, surrounded by gardens and swaying palms. Just a short stroll from the beach, the larger Tropical Rooms can sleep up to two adults and two children. Surrounded by gardens, they are in the heart of the hotel. Closer to the water are the Ocean Beachfront Rooms, with their wide terraces and cool interiors. With a similar outlook, but larger, are the Tropical Beachfront Rooms, which can sleep a family of four. For more intimacy, the Senior Suites Beachfront are perfect. With large living areas, terraces and a private garden, they also come with dedicated loungers on the beach. The Ocean Beachfront Suites have an unadulterated view of the lagoon, with Le Morne Brabante behind, with the water just steps away from your terrace. The Two Bedroom Tropical Suites can sleep up to two adults and three children and are set in the heart of the gardens. They have two bathrooms, a large terrace and are very spacious. Right on the beach are the Two Bedroom Ocean Beachfront Family Suites – the perfect place for you all to wake up. The plush Two Bedroom Luxury Family Suite Beachfront is just steps from the beach and enjoys one of the best locations in the resort. Sleeping up to seven, the Paradis Villas are vast. Right on the peninsula, there’s direct access to the beach and each has a private garden. They have three en suite bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen – ideal for private dining and a home cinema. The Presidential Villa sits on the beach and is surrounded by palms, sleeping up to ten. It comes with a private valet and chef available on request, making it pure tropical island bliss.
As guests at Paradis can dine at Dinarobin, the sister hotel on the other side of the marina, making a total of eight restaurants, it’s entirely possible to eat somewhere different each day. Local Creole and Mauritian food is celebrated here, as well as dishes from around the world. Headed up by the exceptionally talented head chef, Jean Christophe Basseau, whose pedigree has been enjoyed by five star resorts around the world, brings his love of fusion cooking to the Indian Ocean. Le Brabant is open from breakfast through until dinner and is the hub of the resort. Next to the pool and overlooking the ocean, its menu changes daily. Opening up onto the beach, the laid back La Palma serves excellent Mediterranean dishes, and if you love seafood, then head for Blue Marlin, a Mauritian style restaurant, for the catch of the day. To dine at La Ravanne, you take a private launch to its very own jetty. Sitting under thatched huts, you’ll feast on delicious Mauritian cuisine.
Paradis Beachcomber ticks every tropical paradise playground box for families, and the resort is brilliantly equipped to cater for all ages. The kids club has its own pool and runs a programme of activities for toddlers to teenagers. Whilst the smaller children go crab hunting and fishing in the lagoon, the older ones might learn to play golf or have a water sports session. Much of the accommodation is designed with families in mind. There’s a babysitting service and freshly pureed food can be ordered for babies. The wide restaurant choice comes complete with children’s menus, so everyone will be happy.
Scuba diving or golf? A Spa treatment or a sun lounger? Or maybe swimming with dolphins after hiking up Le Morne? When did decisions become this difficult? Many guests come here for the championship 18 hole, par 72, golf course. And just along the coast, there are many more. You can play or have lessons with a pro from the Golf Academy, and you can even stop at the 10th hole for a drink at the bar. As you would expect, the water sports here are second to none. The resort has a fleet of dinghies to sail, as well as kite surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding and wakeboarding. There’s also a dive centre and a trip to the reefs should not be missed. The Sports Centre has a fully equipped gym with a personal trainer and there are six floodlit tennis courts. As you would expect, the Spa is glorious. Set between the golf course and the beach, a team of therapists are on hand to tailor create the right treatment for you – you’ll definitely get some tropical relaxation here. If you venture outside the peninsula, the whole island is waiting to be explored. From the wildlife park at Casela to the Tamarin salt flats, and from adventures along the Black River to venturing right into the lush rainforest of the interior – you’ll see a Mauritius you never knew existed.
