With its elegance, child-friendly nature and lush tropical gardens, we adore Heritage Le Telfair in Mauritius as a family holiday destination. We’re delighted to say they’re one of the featured hotels in our Holiday Sale for 2019 and as a result we wanted to share five reasons why we love this dreamy Indian Ocean resort so much…
1. Babies won’t be bored
Heritage Le Telfair is one of the few resorts in the Indian Ocean where there are dedicated facilities for babies. Not only are amenities such as cots, changing tables and high chairs provided as part of the service, the nursery is run by friendly staff who keep your young ones entertained with sensory games, play mats and toys.
2. Enjoy fine dining at its peak
Set among French gardens in a former sugar plantation-style house, Heritage Le Château combines a farm-to-fork concept with dishes of the highest quality. Here, you can enjoy British classics like a lovely afternoon tea or Michelin-starred food showcasing the best of Mauritian cuisine.
3. It’s home to a seriously cool beach club
Next to Heritage Le Telfair lies C Beach Club, a place which almost feels like a day out away from the resort. It has everything – a great swimming pool, stargazing, outdoor movie evenings, a range of watersports and a relaxed restaurant area where you can have brunch, lunch or dinner – or all three if you fancy it!
4. It’s great for an adrenaline rush
The wild nature of Frederica Nature Reserve lies a stone’s throw from Heritage Le Telfair. It’s filled with rich biodiversity, including endemic plants and wildlife, and rivers, streams and the gushing L’Exemple waterfall act like refreshing cooling spots. Its rolling landscape is great for a quad bike adventure (we’re sure the children won’t need any encouragement!), scooting around the emerald landscape and the abandoned ruins of a former sugar plantation.
5. You can soar through the skies
For something truly different in Mauritius, you can take your family holiday to new heights at Heritage Le Telfair with a helicopter tour over a leafy slice of Mauritius from the resort’s private helipad. It makes for an unforgettable experience and one that both you and the kids will remember for a long time!
