Some of the quaint atmosphere of these days gone by can still be experienced at the Sugar Beach Resort on Mauritius’ west coast. The Sugar Beach is a member of the celebrated Sun Resorts hotel chain, which also operates the exclusive Le Touessrok Hotel.
A fortune having been spent on extensive refurbishing as recently as 2008, the Sugar Beach has advanced to one of Mauritius most charming and beautiful hotel resorts.
The Sugar Beach’s backdrop is a real world copy of those tempting travel agency shop window decorations. Built in the old-fashioned plantation style, the exceptional hotel is set on an immaculate, white beach with turquoise waves gently licking at the sand.
Fringing the beach, beautifully designed and well-kept gardens fill the air with the sweet fragrance of countless tropical flowers. The Sugar Beach Hotel is a small paradise on earth!
Of course, the culinary delights also receive due attention. No less than four exquisite restaurants compete for the discerning guest’s favour. The stylish eateries create a feast for all five senses and specialise on local, Mediterranean and international gourmet cuisine.
Time to daydream: You are strolling down the palm-fringed beach while the setting sun paints the evening sky in bright shades of orange and purple-blue. Crush the warm sand between you naked toes and let the waves roll over your feet.
Doubtlessly, the Sugar Beach Resort will not only provide the perfect setting for a supremely relaxing holiday but also leave a lasting impression on your memory and in your heart.
