Absolutely perfect!from A TripAdvisor Member
Perfect Honeymoonfrom ño
Afetr carefully checking in Trip Advisor, we decided this one for our honey moon. We both work in advertising and the best compliment, it is that the whole place is better than the advertising.
The service is excellent, but you never feel overwhelmed. We were 8 days. some of them a little bit windy, but fully avoidable being by the Yatcht Club beach chairs. Cristal clear water, beatiful sand colour and magic reefs in the short distance.
Food of excellent level. Wine a little bit over priced but justified because of distance.Details carefully looked after. Excellent service in all languages and trying hard (we are from Spain) in Spanish.
It is the perfect script for far beaches in the Indian Ocean with love and luxury.
Hotel shop prices in line with the island.
Many activities to be done and excursions in case you feel dinamic. We mostly loaf around the hotel and beaches and took full advantage of everything it offered, including the Spa.

One of the best!from globetrotterfirst
Comments about the cost of beverages is justified-wine is overpriced. Also I believe more comfortable beach chairs would be more in keeping with the overall class of this hotel. Also if you object to regular weddings taking place at your holiday resort, then this hotel is not for you. However, these are minor points and do not detract from an excellent rating overall.
Having stayed in Four Seasons, Taj etc hotels I would rank the Residence amongst these
One final word of advice-do not expect wall to wall sunshine, even in October. It can rain and some days may be cloudy. It seemed to be windy most days, with people often off the beach by 4pm. However, you still get a lot of sun for your money
Wonderful honeymoonfrom A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I just returned from a two week stay at The Residence for our honeymoon, and I wanted to share what a wonderful time we both had.
I have to disagree with the reviewer who claimed it was like a Disney resort - this hotel is pure elegance. From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty. We were given iced tea and refreshing cool towels, then taken to our room where we checked in. As it was our honeymoon there was a fresh fruit basket and champagne on arrival. The personal butler was great - felt a little odd asking him to do things for us, but the rose petal baths he ran were fabulous.
The food is sublime. The Dining Room seems a little more elegant, with the Plantation being great for themed buffets - Seafood, African and Mexican were all sampled!
Whilst I agree the prices are high for drinks and lunch, one can walk 5 mins to Belle Mare village and get a Mauritian curry / rice / fish for a few pounds. My wife and I also bought wine from the supermarket for a fraction of the hotel price and took back to the room.
Watersports, Spa, pool...all first class. The fragrant smell of ylang ylang being wafted through the air prompted us buy some spray for our flat to remind us of the wonderful time we had.

A fabulous hotel for our honeymmonfrom snagMelbourne
As a previous reviewer has mentioned - watch out for the wine and alcohol prices, they are steep and in our opinion unreasonable, but that is our only gripe. We bought a bottle of champaign from mauritius airport and it cost us about £30, in the hotel, exactly the same bottle would have cost us over a £100!
We would recommend the hotel, the rooms, food and beach are fab. A very relaxing honeymoon.
Been once, been twice, going again!from TonyLee11
Top Local Tips for Mauritius
Factory Designer Shops You can buy great designer clothes at low prices at some of the Factory Shop outlets. I bought some Paul and Shark and Prada stuff. All looks and feels genuine stuff to me. An owner told me that all the big names have clothes made on the island and locals are allowed to sell any line over runs etc in these factory shops. Beware however of smaller retail outlets that have all the usual low quality copy stuff.
Private Dining Make a point of requesting a private dining experience during your stay. the staff make a great job of spoiling you for the night!
Restaurants Most hotels force you to go half board to keep you in the resort. Other hotels offer great food and it's well worth eating out. Also, the hotels charge European prices which are heavily inflated, yet local restaurants are a fraction of the price. To give you an idea, a great meal for 2 with wine in a top hotel costs the same amount as a months wages for a waiter in a Mauritian hotel. The locals eat at good restaurants outside the hotels that are much cheaper.
