The Oberoi is a fantastic resort hotel located in 20 acres of beautiful subtropical gardens on the Baie aux Tortues or Turtle Bay. It spans three sections of sandy beach between the mountains and the turquoise water of the Indian Ocean on the protected west coast of the island. The hotel is 15km away from the capital city of Port Louis and near the buzzing small town of Grand Baie.
With only 71 luxurious villas and pavilions, a sense of exclusivity and style prevails. Each villa is located in a private garden, providing undisturbed privacy, some of which contain their own pool. The pavilions are equally luxurious, with spacious bedrooms including a generous seating area and a marble bathroom with a sunken bath. The raised open-air dining pavilion, with its palm-thatched roof timbers and natural teak furniture, is an invitation to an al fresco breakfast or a romantic dinner. The outdoor terrace is perfect for private dining or simply just to relax.
Other facilities in the resort include the beautifully appointed spa which provides a serene and truly unforgettable experience of pure pampering and relaxation in exquisite surroundings, using holistic therapies and massages which combine the very best of Eastern and Western practices.
For the more active guests The Oberoi has floodlit tennis courts, a swimming pool and a fully equipped gym as well as offering watersports such as windsurfing, water-skiing, scuba diving and deep sea fishing. Guests can also partake in “Touching the Senses” activities ranging from painting lessons with a local artist, to guided walks through the gardens to learn about the plant and bird life. Sculpture classes, star gazing, cooking classes and wine tasting sessions are just some of the alternative activities on offer.
The Oberoi welcomes guests of all ages, and there's a kids club with daily, age-related activities to keep the younger ones entertained.
