The Residence is a luxury resort nestled between tropical gardens and a kilometre-long beach of powdery white sand in Belle Mare on the east coast of Mauritius and is a successful combination of bygone charm and modern comfort. Inspired by the colonial mansions and plantation houses of yesteryear, each refined detail is a tribute to the deliciously nostalgic elegance of a sophisticated lifestyle.

The sense of a former era is enhanced by the impeccable service at the hotel, with check-in held in the comfort of your room, and a member of staff at hand to unpack and iron items for you. A personal butler is also allocated to each room to attend to guests’ every need.

The 135 spacious rooms and 28 suites each open onto a private balcony or terrace and have marble bathrooms and separate dressing rooms. Interiors are a blend of colonial style and sophistication, in soft tones of ivory and cream. The Colonial Rooms have garden or ocean views and each have a spacious private balcony or terrace, king size or twin bed, air conditioning, ceiling fan, desk, living area, satellite TV with in-house movie and music channels and mini bar.
