Discover the Real Mauritius

Experience innovative architecture by Lek Bunnag and fashionable interiors by Kenzo Takada. Relish personal 24-hour service by So Special butlers (for suites and villas only), state-of-the-art technology, pampering spa treatments and Sofitel’s exclusive MyBed for dreamy nights.

At this 5-star hotel in Mauritius, cocoon yourself in an environmentally friendly suite or villa – an oasis of serenity which captures the spirit of the island. Inspired by the tranquil lagoon, slow down and relax, surrounded by nature.

The Mauritius Bel Ombre estate, a stretch of beautiful coastline in the south of the island, is connected to Irish philanthropist and sugar magnate Charles Telfair, who bought the Bel Ombre sugar factory in 1816. The factory closed when the area was given over to luxury tourism but the historic chimney recalls bygone days. Abundant opportunities exist to explore the 2,500-hectare estate, from the Frédérica Nature Reserve to golf in an 18-hole championship golf course to water sports in the tranquil lagoon that laps the beaches of Mauritius’ south coast.

The tranquil blue lagoon by Sofitel So Mauritius cries out for you to plunge into the crystal clear waters and explore the colors and beautiful fish with a snorkel… If you’d rather keep your hair dry, take a ride in a glass-bottomed boat and marvel at myriad fish darting between live corals.

Many water sports are complimentary for Sofitel guests and some are suitable for families.
