Privacy is becoming increasingly hard to come by, enter St Regis Villa, which is the largest and most exclusive full-service private beachfront villa on the island of Mauritius, combined with flair and finesse true to the brand St Regis.
Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of staying at St Regis Mauritius Resort. It, is located directly on the world-famous ‘One Eye’ kite-surfing spot and set on pristine white natural beaches at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Le Morne. From the moment we checked in, our experience has been nothing but the ultimate in service and hospitality, thanks to Mr Thierry Bazerque and his team.
St Regis Villa takes luxury to a new level…!
Indian Ocean sunsets have never been more seductive than from the elegant outdoor spaces of The St. Regis Villa. Three of its four bedrooms feature a private furnished deck and a heated plunge pool, and two of them afford an outdoor shower. Additionally, the villa boasts a heated infinity pool with a children’s area and a Jacuzzi, as well as several outdoor seating areas and a bar.
The villa is dramatically distinguished by its numerous indoor facilities. When its sliding doors are open, a formal lounge allows stunning ocean views from contemporary sofas and chairs, while an informal lounge is equipped with a 56-inch LED TV, a Sony PlayStation® PS3™, and a Nintendo® Wii™. The secluded office contains a modern desk and seating, a computer, a printer, a scanner, and a 32-inch TV. A steam room adjoins the fitness room, which has both cardio and weight machines; a personal trainer can be arranged upon request. The design celebrates Mauritius’ rich and diverse cultural heritage, providing an idyllic island sanctuary reminiscent of the destination’s unique colonial past.
A renowned hallmark of the brand, the signature St Regis Butler Service, provides anticipatory service and customises each stay according to specific tastes and preferences. From preparing cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the villa’s private bar, to finding treats, books and games for the little ones, and understanding the preferred set-up for electronic gadgets in the study. The private chef will prepare and serve the guests’ favourite dishes in their preferred location, be it in the dining area, on the beach or in the lush, secluded garden.
For a little personal pampering, the Iridium Spa unites a timeless design, sparkling chandeliers, and elegantly crafted, private spaces with warm, metallic accents and incandescent garden views that evolve daily as the sun passes over the island. Lounge-style seating and library programming impart the opportunity to relax pre or post treatment.
Meanwhile, healthy food—ranging from sushi, sashimi, and Japanese stew to garden salads and vegetable prawn tempura—and beverage options provide energising nourishment. Further, the Iridium Room, with its soothing water feature, presents signature tea service complete with complementary dried fruit. Offering a spectrum of services customised to meet differing needs, our 12 treatment rooms—including the Iridium Spa Couple’s Suite—invite guests to relax as professional therapists work to revitalize the body, mind, and soul. A hair, beauty, and grooming salon, hydro spa with jet showers, whirlpool, steam bath, and sauna add to the rejuvenating offerings.
Guests at the villa can relax in complete privacy, or enjoy the resort’s luxurious facilities. Artistic in every detail, the culinary offerings at The St. Regis Mauritius Resort transport guests around the world amid the resort’s stunning tropical surroundings and rich heritage. At Le Manoir Dining Room the island’s history is placed at the forefront, both in décor and the gourmet French-Creole offerings. Simply India travels northeast to present a creative mix of spice and innovation, while the reservations-only Inspiration provides a bespoke menu in the island’s smallest and most exclusive restaurant.
