My wife and I have just returned from our honeymoon at the Beau Rivage (29th May-8th June).
What a fantastic experience!
On arrival at the hotel we were greeted with refreshments and a friendly welcome, and we instantly started to relax. We were shown to our room, a honeymoon suite, and it was perfect. Modern and stylish with lots of space. The room was spotlessly clean and had a large balcony with views of the grounds and to the beach beyond. The complimentary bottle of champagne and fruit was also a nice touch. The room was cleaned twice a day during our stay and the very high standard was maintained throughout.
On our first night we were invited to a drinks reception hosted by the manager and his team. Once again we were given a warm welcome and complimentary drinks, followed by entertainment, which was traditional dancing and music, which was excellent and really got us in the holiday mood.
The staff at this hotel are one of its biggest assets. They are all incredibly friendly and cannot do enough for you to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible- nothing is ever too much trouble.
There is a choice of four restaurants within the resort. ‘The Kitchen’ is the largest restaurant and was open for breakfast and dinner (buffet).Breakfast here is excellent, there is a good selection of virtually anything you wish to eat, continental, hot bacon and sausages and freshly cooked eggs, pancakes and waffles. Dinner at The Kitchen is also excellent with a wide variety of dishes to suit every taste; the special theme nights are also a good way to try new things.One themed night we ate here we were served a main meal at our table which was a choice of fish or fillet steak – which was amazing! A very high standard of catering.
The Beach restaurant is the place to eat for lunch. Again the food and service is excellent with fantastic views of the beach. All the food is freshly cooked and there is an excellent choice.
Langoustier is the hotels seafood restaurant and we ate here several times, I would recommend the shrimp skewer starter and the sea food curry, again the food and service was faultless.
Indouchine is an Asian fusion restaurant and has a fantastic mix of oriental, Indian and Mauritian cuisine. The restaurant manager Roopesh gave us a warm welcome and we were then introduced to our waiter Amar, the level of service we received from Roopesh and Amar is amongst the best I have experienced anywhere in the world. The food also is excellent. We ate here on several occasions and on one night were invited by Roopesh for a special meal prepared solely for us. Our table was decorated with a heart mural and we were served an outstanding four course meal with different wines to suit the different courses. The food was sublime and a compliment to the chef. Our special thanks must go to Roopesh and his team at Indouchine for what was a very special evening. they are an asset to the hotel
The bar area of the hotel is very well set out with live entertainment every night, excellent attentive staff and a full array of international drinks all served to a very high standard.
The grounds, beach and pool at the Beau Rivage are meticulously maintained; beautifully kept flower beds compliment the fantastic large pool and very comfortable sun loungers.
We are both well travelled and expect a high standard when it comes to food and cleanliness – the Beau Rivage was faultless, and we would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
Many thanks to all at the Beau Rivage for a wnderfull honeymoon.
