Mauritius travel reviews

House exactly as described or even better

Benoit P.   France   February 2020
Luxury Villa Amara

House exactly as described or even better. Very nice swimming pool and direct access to the beach with canoes available to move around the lagoon. Dorine and Marilyne took great care with breakfast, dishes, laundry and cleaning every day.

Villa and service are first class

Annabell B.   Austria   December 2019
Luxury Villa Amara

We chose this place very carefully because we came with two small children and on the one hand looked for relaxation for us as a couple, but also a place where our children would feel comfortable. The combination beach, house, pool was wonderful.

Our five-year-old son was constantly snorkelling, by sitting near the pool you could enjoy the shared evenings with two satisfied children, who found a lot of toys for free use.

Marylin and Dorine cooked us wonderfully and looked after us, we did not go to the restaurant once.

The communication with Sophie and Bernard was very professional and proactive. The villa and the service are first class. We thank you for some very cared for, relaxing days!

Lovely location with a sea breeze and great pool

Amanda H.   United Kingdom   May 2018
Luxury Villa Amara

Great to find such a lovely villa right on the beach with a pool for exercising too - all the fixtures and fittings were of a high quality and we didn't want for anything - opening all the sliding doors creates a lovely breeze through the house and creates a living 'inside/outside' feel which is exactly what we hoped for.

Fabulous friendly welcome form our maids who did everything possible to make our stay as perfect as possible. A very helpful and warm welcome from Sophie too - thank you all - next time we would rent a car as although the transport with our driver was great we would prefer a little more independence - now that we know the roads are manageable and the navigation easy we would rent on arrival at the airport next time.

We... can fully recommend the villa!

Luxury Villa Amara

When we arrived at the Villa Amara we were left speechless: The villa was even more luxurious and beautiful than in the photos. It is wonderfully appointed, clean, the rooms spacious, the living space generously designed - perfect for two families. The beautiful pool area is also child safe, which makes the holiday with small children extremely relaxed. Dorine and Marilyne looked after us carefully, cooked well and were very friendly and accommodating.

Also Sophie and Bernard from the agency were very nice and helpful. The beach is not comparable to other dream beaches in Mauritius, but these are easily accessible by car. We had a great time and can fully recommend the villa!

We had a great time at Villa Amara

Luxury Villa Amara

Sophie and Bernard from Bookmauritius Villas organized everything simply perfect and the two girls at the Villa, Dorine and Marylin pampered us the whole day. Beside this the food Dorine and Marylin cooked every day was great. We just can recommend Bookmauritius Villas and Villa Amara. We will come back again!

Contemporary villa set on the beach

Tim D'S.   United States   August 2017
Luxury Villa Amara

We (my family and in-laws) booked Villa Amara through Book Mauritius Villas. Sophie from the agency was very helpful from the time of the booking to our arrival and departure. The villa was as the online photos and videos depict - clean, modern, with a pool and set on the beach at Poste Lafayette. Very idyllic. Cooking and cleaning was ably taken care of by Dorine & Marilyn. We had a very enjoyable holiday.

Immaculate and spacious with great service

Denise D'S.   Kenya   August 2017
Luxury Villa Amara

This villa felt new and clean, and was kept immaculately clean by the two daily house maids, one of whom was available to cook too! It was well laid out, with three separate spaces to relax and chill out - one by the beach, one in the main living area and one at the front of the house with a TV in it. Two separate dining areas offered a choice of eating indoors or by the pool. The area felt safe and quiet, and in addition to the beach in front of the house, a nearby public beach offers an alternative. Although the plot is shared by the owners parents in an adjoining villa, it felt private, and we never saw them. Would definitely recommend this one.

Fantastic house and location

Wonderfurl Villa

Gabrielle F.   United Kingdom   Sept 2016
Luxury Villa Amara

We spent 2 weeks staying at Villa Amara, what a lovely villa and location. The villa is set out very well with plenty of seating areas, especially useful is the pool area if it is windy on the beach side of the villa. The beds were really comfortable and all the bathrooms were spotless with excellent showers. There was plenty of clean towels also. Dorine and Marilyn looked after us very well keeping the villa spotless and making us some wonderful food, especially the bbq fish, the noodles and not forgetting the lovely coconut treat. We hired a car throughout our stay which was organised by Sophie along with our pick up from the airport. We ventured out to many places and really liked the Botanical Gardens and Labourdinnais. Mauritius is a lovely place to visit.


Hazel G.   United Kingdom   May 2016
Luxury Villa Amara

This is a lovely roomy property, in a quiet area on the east of the island. It has all the amenities you could require including the team of Dorren and Danille who cook and clean and are delightful. The pool is a good size, as are the bedrooms (with aircon which we required). It is a private site and the roads surrounding are rural and winding, to get around you will require a hire car, although the villa will arrange this for you if needed.

It's difficult to fault the villa, location or island!

Perfect Holiday at Villa Amara

Stephen G.   London, United Kingdom   April 2016
Luxury Villa Amara

We just came back from two weeks at Villa Amara in Mauritius where we had a wonderful holiday.

The villa is located in quiet Poste Lafayette on the East Coast of the Island. The house is very well appointed (including the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on!) with stunning views of the lagoon. A huge thank you to Doreen who allowed us to taste so many local meals thanks to her amazing cooking, and to Daniella who helped kept the house tidy and on many occasions happily looked after our kids whilst we were having a nap or went for a swim.

The beach is great and although the sea is quite shallow at the front and has a few rocks (worth bringing some reef shoes), the house provides for 4 kayaks which allowed us to go into the deeper water or to a little island about 15 min away which was great for swimming. Having a pool was a fantastic addition and provided for a great change from the beach / sea (especially enjoyable for the kids).

The gazebo on the beach front was superb and we spent many hours there just gazing at the views or watching the kids play on the private beach (whilst sipping on a nice glass of wine).

A very special place and we can’t wait to come back!
