The St. Regis Mauritius Resort

Helena Barry

Mauritius’s lagoon-fringed Le Morne peninsula attracts windsurfers and kitesurfers the world over for its idyllic coastline and year-round trade winds. The new St. Regis Mauritius Resort, which opened on the peninsula in November, caters to this high-flying crowd with the Club Mistral Prestige kitesurfing club, where experts offer private instruction and insider tips on choice reef breaks. Nonsurfers can also take advantage of the resort’s prime location, assisted by butlers who can arrange waterskiing, diving, snorkeling, and speedboating excursions around the lagoons.

Butlers also greet guests upon arrival at the St. Regis—one of five resorts on Mauritius’s exclusive southwest coast—and escort them to one of 172 accommodations. Located in a colonial-style manor house or amid tropical gardens near the beach, each of the rooms and suites opens onto a deep veranda with sunset views.

Each of the St. Regis’s six restaurants reflects a different aspect of the island’s multicultural past, helping alleviate gourmet burnout over long stays. Try Le Manoir for French-Mauritian cuisine or the beachside Boathouse Bar and Grill for seafood, rum cocktails, and views of Le Morne Brabant mountain.
