Sands Suites Resort & Spa is located on one of the most pristine stretches of beach at Flic en Flac, on the west coast of Mauritius, overlooking the translucent blue and turquoise lagoon of the Tamarin Bay and the legendary rock of Le Morne peninsula.

Sands Suites Resort & Spa on the west coast is a real gem that offers a peaceful and serene setting that perfectly fits the genuine local touch of the island. This boutique hotel inaugurated in 2001 reveals the natural lush and magical allure of Mauritius through its architecture and elegant decor that together contribute to the comfort of this boutique hotel. With a delightful beach and dreamy lagoon, Sands is also beautified by a shimmering infinity pool that will amaze its guests.

The resort offers 4 different styles and sizes of villas:

  • Exclusive Suite: An easy way to live your best life on holiday, this suite has two bedrooms, a separate living space and two balconies boasting magnificent views over the Indian Ocean. The extra room makes it ideal for families or couples seeking a completely extravagant experience.
  • Beachfront Suite: Each of the 12 suite comes with either a private balcony or terrace and some of the finest views in Mauritius. These large spaces are the perfect sanctuary at any time of day, with large living spaces to relax and beautiful views of Tamarin Bay to gaze at.
  • Deluxe Suite: The 26 suites enjoy a private terrace for sitting in the sun. Here you will find a large bedroom in neutral tones with a splash of vibrant colour, several sofas with prime ocean gazing views and a sense of complete five-star relaxation.
  • Superior Suite: The 52 elegant and spacious suites have beautifully light with a contemporary feel. Enjoy great big beds, sink into sofas and luxury all around including a private sea facing balcony.

The resort has three characterful restaurants where dishes from around the world combine with a relaxed atmosphere and exemplary service.

  • Tamarind Terrace: The main dining destination serving up a different themed quality buffet every day including Indian, Chinese and locally inspired cuisine. Guests can enjoy a wide selection of international wine, Champagne and cocktails, expertly created by renowned French mixologist Matthias Giraud. The Terrace has magnificent views of Le Morne Mountain during the day and the twinkling lights of Tamarin Village at night.
  • Spices Restaurant: As the names suggests, you can experience highly flavoursome dishes that follow a Mediterranean style concept with an additional blend of exotic spices.
  • Pink Peppercorn: Imagine sitting at a table with golden sand at your feet and the Indian Ocean stretching out like an azure blue tablecloth. Freshly caught fish are being lightly grilled to perfection and a bottle of chilled Champagne is about to be ceremoniously popped.
  • The Dolphin Bar: A bright, boisterous venue, full of life as it happens. Guests coming and going, friends sitting, sharing stories. Gather here for a cold drink and a comfy seat, a snack to keep you going until dinner, then, later into the night, congregate for live music, cocktails and an infectiously fun atmosphere.

The Indian Ocean, with its calm shallow waters and dazzling array of tropical fish, is the most wonderful place to experience any water-based activity. The hotel’s beachfront location means that guests can walk from their bedrooms straight into the sea.
