This hotel is well situated (except when the wind is blowing, which it was when we were there sadly) and quite luxurious. Rooms are spacious, the outdoor showers are a lovely touch and each room has a unique character. Staff are really wonderful and nothing is too much trouble for them. The meals are really good, well presented, perfectly executed and really a gourmet experience. Restaurant and bar staff are a delight and they really did all they could to ensure my birthday was very special.Two small gripes we had that prevented a perfect 5 out if 5 (and we did address and resolve these with the very attentive management on site before we left but I do think it is important for others to be alerted). 1. Was the issue of selected meals carrying surcharge even though we were on a full board package. This is not written on the menu anywhere and apparently waiters are supposed to explain it, but they didnt. So we did feel a bit cheated when we learnt that we needed to pay a surcharge to have 2 burgers (whereas we could have had a three course meal of non surcharge items we just happened to choose the burgers that hada surcharge). 2. Is what they do (dont do actaully) with the information they collected from us via email prior to check in. They asked about allergies but ignored the information (my husband is allergic to chilli and a recommended dish of lamb stew has chilli in it with no markings to say this was the case). But to be fair this was a recommended dish, the items on the menu are all clear about allegins, They also asked what language to communicate with us in and despite us saying English, all correspondence from welcome letter to guest evaluation form was in French. We queried this on check out and were told that as our surname sounded French they thought they would use that instead. But these two small and resolved issues did not detract from a really excellent time at this small boutique hotel.

Room tip: Be aware of the surcharge on the menu even if you are full or half board

Dear Mrs, Greetings from 20 Degres Sud where you just spent your birthday break. Was a real pleasure having had the opportunity to have you and your friends on that special occasion. I do take note of your below comments and be reassured that I am taking the two comments with high respect and will use them to enhance the quality of our services. We do have few dishes which are not set for the full board package and will make it a point to better highlight them and avoid confusion. Concerning the preferences comments, in deed it should have been mentioned to you, great suggestion from you to extend the markings on these dishes. Noted also the fact that you were not presented with the right documentation upon your arrival, simple things that can be rectified quickly. On another note I am glad to read that you have enjoyed your stay with us and that you were happy with the level of service of the team, I will pass on your appreciation to them and we all do hope to get the chance to welcoming you again soon. Please do not wait for your next birthday. Wishing you all the very best, to you and to your family. Lindley THOMEN, General Manager.

We loved the Austral suite and it's antique brown furniture. The room was massive and includes a bathroom, walk in wardrobe, WC and indoor AND outdoor shower. The restaurant is beautiful with rattan furniture and a view across the bay but we also enjoyed breakfasts next to the pool under the palm trees in the morning sun. It's was too windy to take the ferry across to Grand Baie or the dinner on the Lady Lisbet which we would have enjoyed. The many staff made our stay particularly easy. Lindley the new manager was charming and Preety and Shivam sorted everything out for us - trips car hire information and all sorts of requests. We really felt looked after. !! Thank you to everyone. Jeremy and Clara

We stayed in a Charm room, number 19. Lovely location near the beach.
The bedroom was quite small in comparison to the huge bathroom.
Would have liked a proper door separating the rooms, rather than a screen, but that was the only gripe.

During our 3 night stay, staff were fabulous, very friendly and helpful.

Great bar area, good cocktails and restaurant food was amazing.
Really good quality and best tasting food we had during our full 8 day trip.

Quality and service definitely better in this small boutique hotel.

Would definitely return.

We have just enjoyed 9 days at 20 Degres Sud and found the location, ambience, accommodation, food and staff all to be outstanding. This was our seventh visit to Mauritius and 20 Degres Sud has been by far the best experience. Staff are attentive to every need and any minor issues were quickly resolved to our complete satisfaction. It must be hard rebuilding a business such as this, post Covid but it is a tribute to the attentive style of the Manager that the hotel is functioning so well with staff who have maintained an excellent skill level. Special mention for David who seemed to be everywhere and Prakash who was most helpful. Finally, to have entertainment on a few nights was a bonus to have at a small hotel and Julius ? (pianist / singer) deserves international recognition!`

My wife and I were looking for a location for our first ‘relaxing’ holiday for quite a few years and more importantly to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary .

Our stay at 20 Degrees Sud was pretty much perfection. The hotel has a peaceful , calm atmosphere , understated but great facilities and ideal location on the quieter side of Grand Bay. We ate in the hotel for all our meals and the restaurant served us great breakfasts and a constantly changing range of perfectly cooked dinner options . Complimentary afternoon tea meant lunch was not needed . Both the beach bar and the main bar served great wine and cocktails as well as local Phoenix beer . Most importantly all the staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming , taking the trouble to remember our names and to do everything they could to make our stay memorable .

For a major celebration , you always hope that plans will live up to high hopes and expectations . 20 Degrees Sud gave us one of the best hotel experiences we have had anywhere and matched all the other excellent reviews !
