Why villa Amara?

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.

Guests' Reviews & Ratings

We had a wonderful stay with Sophie. The house is magnificent, luxurious, quiet with a breathtaking view over the lagoon. The bedding is perfect and the house is quiet. Swimming in the lagoon is difficult in front of the house, so the pool is a real asset. The house staff are very pleasant and available and Dorine prepares wonderful dishes! Sophie was always available to answer our questions and gave us great advice. We'll be back again! Thank you for everything Sophie
Florent D. - France - 30 May 2024
Superb location, hosts, cook and maid. Really enjoyed the entire stay. Had great fun with the kayaks. Would recommend it whole heartedly.
Lucky P. - United Kingdom - 23 April 2024
Me and my family stayed for 10 days. And we loved the place very much. The host Sophie was outstanding and made the stay feel like home. Highly recommend the place if you are visiting Mauritius.
Zaïd A. - United Arab Emirates - 01 December 2023
We had a fantastic stay and I can highly recommend the villa. The rooms, the pool, the beach.. It is simply a perfect place to relax and recharge.
Jesper E. - Denmark - 23 March 2023
Sophie supplied us with all the information we needed before our arrival. The house is very quiet with direct access to the sea and the pool, which was ideal for our children.

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?

Vincent B - France - 01 March 2023
We spent a week at villa AMARA in Poste Lafayette at the beginning of February. Ideally located on the coast, unfortunately we could not fully enjoy the beach because of algae due to bad weather. Despite this, the villa is well placed and allows to discover the east, it is very well arranged with a beautiful swimming pool at the back, beautiful decoration. The service offered by Bookmauritius is simply perfect: 2 people at the villa, very discreet including Dorine who prepares wonderful Mauritian dishes for lunch and dinner, à la carte!

Booking process, communication, nothing to say. Without hesitation, we recommend the agency and the villa (and Dorine !!)

Thierry R. - France - 25 February 2023
Villa Amara offers everything you need. We had a wonderful 14 days there.

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!

Severine S. - Switzerland - 10 January 2023
Sophie's house is gorgeous and even better than what one can imagine looking at the picture. It is perfect for up to 8 people, plenty of space and kitchen super well equipped. Dorinne (the house keeper) is the real added value, she will prepare for you amazing meals and breakfast always smiling and keen to help. I would choose this place without hesitation if I will ever be back in this lovely island
Stefano L. - Italy - 13 December 2022
We had a great stay at Villa Amara. It is very well equipped and 2 of the 4 bedrooms have seaview and private bathrooms / WCs and garden / swimming pool view for the other 2, which share a 3rd bathroom and WCs. Access to the beach is direct. Dorine, is a very dedicated and an excellent cook, helped by Saloni, she does everything to help us.
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.
Françoise G. - France - 29 November 2022
We had a wonderful stay! Rented the villa for 12 days with 3 couples. From the first communication with Sophie and Bernard it was all perfectly fine! Both helped us with our activities and gave us great advices. The villa itself - with Dorine who‘s cooking is absolutely fabolous - is a beautiful place to stay. It is clean, cute, quiet and with perfect service. Absolutely recommend the villa and recommend Sophie and Bernard! Thank you for everything and hopefully until next time!
Julian B. - Germany - 21 November 2022
Excellent week in this villa designed for pleasant stays. The photos reflect the reality well. The villa is clean, spacious and well-equipped.
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!
Chantal P. - France - 11 November 2022
Excellent stay at Sophie's! Impeccable cleanliness, soothing calm ++ An impeccable house maintained by two nice women every day. I highly recommend it ++
Tharwa O. - France - 10 October 2022
Many thanks to Bookmauritus. The villa is in accordance with all the photos. Quiet and peaceful. The pool is beautiful, pleasant and easy to access. The beachside is ``lagoon and kayak``. The service offered is professional and matches the standards of the luxury hotel industry. You can entrust the organisation of your stay to the agency, car rental, excursions and advice. And then Sophie and Bernard, a big thank you for your advices and for these beautiful moments exchanged.
Nadhem B. - France - 31 August 2022
Very nice villa, very well equipped. The house staff are top notch and make you feel like you're in a hotel (although personally I prefer the ``independent`` side). The view from the rooms on the beach is magnificent. The east coast is windy in winter and therefore a bit noisy at night.
Ben C. - Belgium - 0& August 2022
We had an incredibly great week at Villa Amara. From the great location to the modern and tasteful interior to the service at the reception and during the stay, everything was just right. Definitely recommended: the mobile wellness massage by Nishta and the great fresh fish that was offered by the nice neighbour.
Wolf T. - Germany - 02 May 2022
Villa Amara, with its large open spaces, is a great place for couples to spend their holidays.
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.

Christian B. - France - 31 March 2022
Superb villa, well equipped, well located and with services that make a difference.

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...

Caroline S. - France - 28 February 2022
Sophie and Bernard from Bookmauritius Villas were simply brilliant. The speed of Communication, and the helpful advise made the whole experience easy. We will definitely be booking our next Villa in Mauritius via them.
Miles A. - United Kingdom - 05 December 2021
Beautiful semi-detached house by the sea with private pool. Great for accommodating 6 adults 2 children and a baby.
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.
Sarah B. - Switzerland - 08 November 2021
Beautiful house with a nice pool and a nice view of the sea. Sophie was always available to answer our questions, there is a woman to prepare the meals and a cleaning lady every day. The house is semi-detached with the owner's parents living on site but very discreet and very nice. We had a wonderful stay ? we will happily return

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.

Hasnae A. - France - 28 October 2021
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.
Benoit P. - France - 19 February 2020
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!

Annabell B. - Austria - 29 December 2019
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.

Amanda H. - United Kingdom - 17 May 2018
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!

Birgit G. - Austria - 15 April 2018
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!
Martin S. - Germany - 17 February 2018
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.
Tim D'S. - United States - 23 August 2017
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.
Denise D'S. - Kenya - 23 August 2017
We spent A very relaxing holiday in this house. Great service and cooking, fantastic house and well equipped. Car recommended for restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. Helpful service from Sophie at
Anette P. - Nederland - 17 December 2016
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 Labourdonnais. Mauritius is a lovely place to visit.
Gabrielle F. - United Kingdom - 23 September 2016
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!
Hazel G. - United Kingdom - 15 May 2016
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.
