Four Seasons Mauritius | Resort Review

Gorgeous Property, but Service Issues


Four Seasons Resort - Mauritius : The Four Seasons Mauritius resort, located at the east side of the island, 30 - 45 minutes from the airport, is built along almost four miles of private seashore with abundant trees and flora all around the area. With a total area of over 525 acres, Four Seasons Mauritius boasts its endless views of water and green mountains.

We were in Mauritius to review luxury resorts and Four Seasons Mauritius was one property we knew we had to visit.

First Impression/Lobby: As we entered the resort’s property we took note, the grounds were meticulous manicured and it surely had a feel of a five-star, luxury resort; exactly what we expected from the Four Seasons Mauritius.

Once in front of the resort’s front door, we were met at the car and immediately asked where we wanted to check-in. We had the option to check-in either at the reception desk or in our villa. We chose the latter.

After checking in, we went back to the lobby and the reception area to take a look around. The lobby was surrounded by wood beams and tons of windows offering non-stop views of the resort. A large flower arrangement at the center of the room, a staple of the Four Seasons, added the elegance and style that the Four Seasons is known for.

Reception: Check-in was done in our villa and it went on quick and simple. But after seeing the reception area of the resort, my guess is that the check-in process would have been just as quick and simple as well if done in the reception area.

The Villa: We booked a Beach Villa for our short stay at the Four Seasons Mauritius. Our initial reaction was one of disappointment. The villa was much smaller than expected, consisting of basically a bedroom and bathroom. The “living area” was outside on the covered porch. Normally I enjoy outdoor living areas, that is, when it’s in a private setting and the weather is amendable for enjoying the outdoors. During our visit the first day was windy and rainy. On our second day, the parade of other guests past the front of our villa along the beach took away any resemblance of privacy.

But, I digress, back to our villa. The main room housed the bed, work desk, one big upholstered chair and of course the large, wall-mounted, flat-screen TV.

In typical resort villa style, a large bathroom was located behind the bedroom. With this part of the villa I had no complaints. A large walk-in closet, twin sinks, deep soaking tub, private toilet stall, an indoor shower and another outdoor shower. This part of the villa was perfect. But, really, how much time do you spend here?

On the front porch, in a semi-enclosed corner was the couch, two side chairs and a coffee table. On the other end were a small dining table and two chairs. Steps away were our small private plunge pool, day bed and two lounge chairs.

Further out was the beach and our less than stellar view. Two lounge chairs were place directly in front of our villa. We expected they belonged to our villa, but we found out (after two guests planted themselves there for the day, that they didn’t. It was first come, first served. So our “beach view” was actually a view of two other guests enjoying the beach. Disappointing to say the least!

Another disappointing thing we noticed in the Beach Villa of the Four Seasons Mauritius was that the hedges between the villas were rather sparse which meant minimum privacy in our yard. They also charged for internet service unlike in Le Touessrok and The Oberoi, which offered free Wi-Fi connections.
