Outrigger is located at Bel Ombre, a small development in the otherwise undisturbed south coast of Mauritius. Here you will find a few other hotels but little else other than spectacular scenery and beautiful coastline.
The resort has been very recently taken over by new management and completely refurbished to a high standard. The property blends contemporary with the influences of a 17th century sugar cane plantation with the heart of the resort built using old sugar mill bricks. The low rise buildings and sandy pathways around the resort create a welcoming and relaxed resort with a spectacular beach where you will find various dining options, relaxation areas and the main swimming pool.
There are many different social spaces to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere or more formal dining such as at the French colonial Plantation club where Mauritian fine dining can be experienced.

Location & Directions
South Coast, Mauritius
Outrigger is on the south coast of Mauritius around 35km from the airport and 40km from the country’s capital, Port Louis. The southern coast of Mauritius faces prevailing winds, meaning that a cooler breeze is present. The south coast boasts several shallow, clear lagoons perfect for swimming.
The island of Mauritius is located in the Indian Ocean, off the southeast coast of the African continent, 900km from Madagascar.
When to go
Mauritius enjoys a typically tropical climate with year-round heat, although the southeast trade winds help it never to feel too muggy. 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.
The best months to visit Mauritius are April to December. January and February, the peak cyclone months, are best avoided by water-sports enthusiasts and divers. Cyclones rarely hit Mauritius but cyclones way out at sea can bring some rain.
Coastal temperatures range between 25°C and 33°C in summer and between 18°C and 24°C in winter. On the plateau it will be some 5°C cooler. The highlands are also the wettest part of the island – it can rain here at any time of year, and even when it’s not raining the area can be cloaked in low-lying cloud. 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.
