One of St Regis’s many defining qualities is its high standard of culinary experience. Boasting an impressive six ‘premier venues’ for dining, guests will find themselves spoiled for choice. ‘Le Manoir Dining Room’ is the hotel’s main restaurant, emulating a colonial dining room; it serves exotic Mauritian dishes and classic French cooking. Other notable mentions go to ‘Simply India’, serving an authentic Indian menu by Indian celebrity chef, Atul Kochhar. For a slightly different experience, try the ‘Boathouse Bar and Grill’, for al fresco, beachside dining and a fresh seafood menu.
The resort also features a number of sophisticated bars, serving classic cocktails, fine wines and beers to the accompaniment of jazz music and even live bands and DJs.
Making the most of the tropical temperatures and landscape, St Regis’s friendly staff lay on a host of outdoor activities for guests to try out. Horseback riding, snorkeling, fishing and aerobic classes are just a few of the leisure pursuits on offer.

When to travel
Mauritius enjoys a typically tropical climate with year-round heat, although the southeast trade winds help it to not feel too muggy.
The best months to visit Mauritius are May to early December. Water sports enthusiasts and divers will want to avoid January and February, the peak cyclone months. Cyclones rarely hit Mauritius but cyclones way out at sea can bring days of squally rain. The summer months are from December to April, when it can nevertheless be extremely humid, and the winter, such as it is, runs from May to November, and is cooler and drier.
Coastal temperatures range between 25°C and 33°C in summer and between 18°C and 24°C in winter, although on the plateau it will be some 5°C cooler. When the winds are at their strongest in July and August it can be blustery on the east coast, though the breeze brings welcome relief in summer. Apart from the Christmas-New Year peak, Mauritius doesn’t really have high and low seasons. The situation is more dependent on outside factors (such as the French school holidays, which cause a big increase in demand and prices in August).
The St Regis Mauritius is located on the south-western side of the island with the stunning backdrop of Mauritius’ iconic Le Morne Brabant Mountain and spectacular sunsets over the open sea. It is 57km from the airport to the St Regis and the journey will take approximately 45 minutes by taxi or private car.
This is a child friendly resort featuring a children’s club, The Kite Flyers Club. Children from 4 -12 years have free access to the Children's Club.
