Holiday rental Amara is located on the beautiful beach and wide, invigorating turquoise lagoon of Poste Lafayette, a peaceful residential region of the East coast of Mauritius. It is semi-detached to another villa on the left side, occupied by the owner’s parents. The villas share only the parking at the rear and the front garden. The 32m² swimming pool and gazebo are for the exclusive use of Villa Amara’s guests.
This beautiful 300 m² accommodates up to 6 adults and 3 children in 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and a children’s bedroom. All are air-conditioned. The twin and double bedrooms are spacious and the two double ones have en-suite bathroom and offer stunning views over the lagoon.
The rear terrace leads on to a fairly private pool area and the spacious gazebo over-looking the lagoon provide great spots to enjoy, rest, relax and socialise. This contemporary holiday villa offers all the necessary modern comfort for spending pleasant holidays on the beach.
Service comprises the cleaning, washing, ironing and cooking. Dorine works from 8.00 am. to 4.30 pm, 6 days a week. Minimal service, (no cooking) on Sundays and public holidays.

For its clarity – different forms of clarity – clarity of the bedrooms and living areas that open wide on the lagoon, clarity of what to expect. Guests’ first & last comments are always about how reality matches the pictures.
For its service – Where “service with a smile” is not just a slogan. Dorine is always keen on pleasing and her cooking skills much appreciated.
For replanting endemic “veloutiers vert” Scaevola taccada on the beach and other efforts to limit beach erosion resulting in a slight accretion in the past years.
Dorine is a gem who made us better food than we could have expected in the restaurant. Everything in the villa is well decorated, air conditioning in the rooms, and the bedding very comfortable.
We went out a few times but with all the advantages on site, why run like the rest of the year! See you soon in Mauritius?
Booking process, communication, nothing to say. Without hesitation, we recommend the agency and the villa (and Dorine !!)
There is a wonderful sea view, enough space, a pool, many outdoor seating options, direct access to the beach.
We have been booking our Mauritius stays with Sophie and Bernard for many years now - and we have always had very good experiences. They respond very quickly to our mails and requests and implement all our wishes and requests very quickly and to our absolute satisfaction. We can really highly recommend BookMauritius Villas.
At Villa Amara, the wonderful Dorine cooked for us the most delicious delicacies Mauritius has to offer. Salonee made sure that the house was always clean and the comfortable beds were regularly made up. What we can also highly recommend is to book a massage at the house with Nishta and her team. One of the best massages we have ever had. The owners of the house are incredibly lovely people, stay discreetly in the background, but are there for you if you want them to be. As it rained three days in a row at our place, they invited us for a little apero at their place, which we found very charming.
All in all, a wonderful stay and we are already planning the next one!
Séverine with family
Sophie and Bernard Cayeux, from the first contacts prior to the reservation until the end of the stay, are very available to answer our questions, help us rent a car, give us a welcome booklet allowing us to complete the preparation of the stay, welcome us on arrival and greet us on departure.
We highly recommend them.
The private swimming pool located in front of the entrance of the house allows swimming sheltered from the wind.
The house staff is very dedicated; the cook Dorine prepares good traditional meals and Marilyne manages the stewardship efficiently; daily cleaning as well as clothes washed, ironed and tidied up throughout the stay.
The view is magnificent with direct access to the beach. It is necessary to have shoes when going into the sea because there are some rocks. Kayaks are available to explore the lagoon.
The villa is twinned with that of the owner's parents. They are discreet and very helpful people.
The only downside is the location. Ideally a car is needed. Otherwise it's bus or taxi to get to restaurants or supermarkets because access by road on foot seems perilous!
The bedrooms are comfortable and air-conditioned.
It is always difficult to choose between swimming in the sea (on one side of the house) or in the pool (on the other side)
And above all Dorine, the cook, always so adorable and attentive, who prepares for us Mauritian dishes of which she has the secret
In short, this is a place to try.
The villa was ideal for our group of friends (group of 6), also perfect for families. It is pleasant, very well equipped. Great view on the beach (where kayaks are exclusively reserved for you).
There are several places to sit and eat: a large table inside with a view of the sea, or garden furniture and a table on the terrace right next to the pool, protected from the wind.
The size of the pool is perfect, and the water is always clear and warm.
The real plus: the services included in the rental. 2 people are in charge of cooking for you (a list of Mauritian dishes is proposed, but Dorine will adapt to your tastes and requests) and of maintaining the house and does your washing & ironing.
Beyond the quality of the services provided, it's a great way to meet people, to have real exchanges and to share on a daily basis.
And if you have any questions, Sophie, who takes care of the reservations, is very available and answers you very quickly.
Finally, its location is perfect for ``radiating`` all over the island.
In short, an ideal holiday as we imagine it! We will be back...
Well equipped and quiet house.
4 kayaks and 4 deckchairs at disposal on the beach.
Internet not available in the 2 upper floors of the house and only a fixed hair dryer for 3 bathrooms.
Sophie very welcoming and available during our stay, very smiley, she always answered our questions that we could ask before our arrival in the villa.
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!
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.
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!
It's difficult to fault the villa, location or island!
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.
