Came here for my honeymoon for a week and had booked the luxury villa. The villa itself is nice and big with a private pool, outdoor seating, a bedroom and an even bigger bathroom with a walk-in cabinet. There was even an outdoor shower. There is a good amount of privacy in and around the villas. The housekeeping staff are also aware about your presence in the villa and most of the days the room cleaning and the evening turn down took place when we were out, ensuring least intrusion.

For breakfast, a nice spread was provided, coupled with ordering at our tables to get the food freshly prepared. I loved the jams so much that I had to bring back some with me. The restaurant (Coast2Coast) is set up close to the beach, we always made it a point to sit as close as possible to have uninterrupted view of the ocean. Since we were on a half-board package (highly recommended), the dinner was also at the same restaurant. For dinner, there is an option of either ordering from the standard menu or from the daily changing theme menu.

The resort provides a number of free services like a good number of water activities (snorkeling, glass boat, kayaking, windsurfing, etc.), certain services in the spa and even renting bicycles from the gym. The free water activities ensured that we don't leave the resort. There are other paid activities that are offered which do not cost much different from outside tour operators, so that came to us as great news. Although the price for the resort might seem high, but considering the food package and the free activities that are offered, I found the resort to be a good value.

But the best part of the resort was the exceptional service and the hospitality. We were always greeted by name which gave our stay that personalised feeling. The servers in the restaurant were always smiling and never missed an opportunity to assist us. A special thank you to Akeel, Kevish, Dinesh, Yann and Vishal at the restaurant for serving us. Another thanks goes out to Desire (at the concierge) for helping us plan our stay with the right activities and excursions. I'll definitely be returning to the resort and would highly recommend for anyone planning to go to Mauritius.

Room Tip: Luxury villas provide most privacy.

We had lunch at The Maradiva Villas Resort and Spa. The resort and grounds are stunning and beautifully maintained. We (4 adults) were the only people in the restaurant, where we enjoyed excellent service and food, but all was revealed when we were shown around the magnificent villas and their private pools, where patrons prefer to have their meals in the privacy and luxury of their own surroundings.

On arrival we were greeted at reception with a welcome drink. This was lovely after such a long flight. The reception staff explained everything and escorted us to our villa. The cases were brought to our villa for us.
The villas are spacious and we'll set out. They are cleaned daily and checks are made throughout the day to check you have enough clean towels and water. In the evening the beds are turned down for you and glasses and more water is provided.
Towels are provided for the villa pool, also on the beach and by the main pool. Long with the spa.
In villa dining is provided for when you want some quiet time. Although the restaurant is never noisy and the tables are not close together.
The food is extremely good and the portions are excellent in size, I struggled to finish. Each meal is ended with complementary biscuits/chocolates.
On the complex there are a few restaurants. The coast to Coast serves daily and has a varied selection. There is an Indian and a Japanese, these 2 need to be booked in advance.
The gym is well set out and has a wide range of machines and cardio equipment. There's also a tennis court and table tennis.
Bicycles are available to hire for free and we found this the nicest way of getting about, flic en flac is about 10 mins away at a leisurely pace. It's all flat too !!!
The spa is beautiful, we enjoyed a lovely massage and petal bath. I didn't want it to end.

I would highly recommend this pls e to anyone who wants peace and tranquility. The staff can't do enough for you.
I will definitely be returning in future.

It has been 7 years since my hubby and I went to Mauritius for our 25th wedding anniversary, to the Taj as it was then. We loved it so much we returned. It did not disappoint. In fact we both feel it has been an even better experience, mainly due to the high levels of service and wonderful staff we have met. We were treated royally.
The highlights for us were:
Teppan Chef Kelly, superb cooking plus a theatrical show, we love her!!!
Ritchie (In Villa Dining) organised some fantastic dining experiences for us, going above and beyond…
The villas are unique in the space and privacy they afford guests
Delightful team of staff, from housekeeping to the gym, from reception to gardening, from waiting staff to the guards who patrol the beach..

Things we think could improve;
Internet coverage is patchy, reliable high speed internet is a given in international hotels these days
Some of the fixtures and fittings in the villas are looking tired, investment needed here
To maintain the unique privacy of the villas guests should be encouraged to exit through the doors and not the gardens
If there is an evening dress code, it should be adhered to by all- no exceptions

If you are after a relaxing holiday with staff who make you feel like nothing is too much trouble this is the place for you.

Room Tip: The garden rooms have the most privacy, don't be afraid to ask for sun loungers if your daybed does not catch the sun all day!

We booked the Resort for our wedding anniversary and a break from the hectic daily routine and we were more than happy with what we got at the Maradiva.
We have been overwhelmed by the extremely helpful, courteous and always smiling staff, right from the first day until we left.
Be it at the restaurants, or within the premises, the staff members would always greet you with a big smile and that made the stay even more pleasant.
It's such a quiet place that you would even wonder if there are guests around! Yes , there are and the villas are so private that you are actually cut off from other villas. They are huge, with the dip pools making them even more special.
The Chef(s) will always come to meet you and inquire if you are enjoying the meal(s) and if there would be anything additional they could do, to make it even better.
This Place is really a paradise spot and would strongly recommend it to others.

Stayed: July 2015
