My husband and I stayed here for a week at the beginning of February (not the BEST time of year to visit Mauritius), but this hotel and the staff more than made up for the humidity and cyclone threat!
The welcome was well organised and a full explanation of all the facilities was given by one of the welcome hosts. Our bags were efficiently delivered to our room, while we were escorted there and given an idea of the whereabouts of the pools/gym/spa etc. It is quite a complex layout until you've been there a few days and the plan of the hotel is a little bit small, but that means it's easily popped into a pocket/bag....
Our room was modern and bright, with a fantastic bathroom with 2 basins, very large shower, and bath. There is not a great deal of storage in the wardrobes, but most of my husband's clothes remained in his case so I got the shelf/wardrobe space. The bed was huge and very comfortable. Our fridge was replenished daily and all the contents were part of the 'all inclusive' package - however, I believe there is more than one type of 'package'.
The family accommodation seemed to have been situated in its own area, which helped to segregate children to a degree, allowing for peaceful sunbathing. There are 3 pools, plus the spa has its own pool and lovely lounging area. (I felt that the prices were high, but this is the norm for the island) There are plenty of sun beds, both round the pools and along by the beach. The beach is beautiful white sand and the lagoon is turquoise blue and so clear! There are beach sellers, but they are not a problem and can only come onto the hotel property if you invite them. We walked for about a mile along the beach to the right and it was extremely scenic and interesting, with locals that are happy to chat and befriend you!
The main restaurant serves a huge selection of food and it was beautifully presented.and always hot. Breakfast is first class and even the bacon is good quality, which is quite rare when you are abroad! Omelettes, eggs etc are cooked to order. The staff were extremely efficient and friendly. The Beach Bar/Restaurant was also very good, with an a la carte menu and the wine which is served is of a good standard, which is not always the case in an 'all inclusive' package.
There was a welcome evening where we were introduced to all the heads of department and that was well organised and helped us to get to know other guests.
So, full marks to The Tamassa and the staff!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A new experience awaits guests at this beautiful all-inclusive beach hotel in Mauritius, located in Bel Ombre, on the island's south-west coast. Tamassa, a 4-star beach hotel, stands at the end of a long avenue of mature coconut palms towering skywards. A picture postcard landscape stretches across sugarcane fields to the mountains beyond. The south-west is a beautiful part of Mauritius, with spectacular walks and drives through lush, tropical hillsides and a range of open-air activities in beautiful countryside. In front of the beach hotel, beyond the sandy beach, lies a turquoise lagoon that almost blends into the skyline. The sea air is invigorating and the ripples of the waves gently calming. Beyond, lie thousands of miles of open sea. The traditional style architecture ideally suits the tropical setting, with beautifully landscaped gardens. The buildings seem at one with the environment. The decor is breathtakingly contemporary, with clean lines and bold use of colour. The atmosphere is one of eternal youth, friendly, cheerful and enthusiastic. Tamassa is a new Mauritian experience! ... more less
