What’s new, best dinner venues and the great of Mauritius

Two new hotel resorts for 2024, great for incentive groups

First off, there is the LUX Belle Mare. Nestled on the island’s wild east coast, this spirited resort has undergone extensive renovations, and reopened for 2024, resulting in a striking new design while retaining its celebrated family ethos. Renowned Mauritian architect Jean-Francois Adam crafted the timeless architecture, and internationally acclaimed designer Jean-Marc Tang transformed the interiors. Inspired by the island’s natural beauty, the 174 suites and 12 unique villas blend minimalist modernity with Mauritian heritage. The resort proudly boasts of its soothing pastels, coral hues, and whitewashed wood details. The bounty of fine dining returns across five exclusive restaurants, including the signature beach club concept, Beach Rouge, offering fresh Mediterranean cuisine with unobstructed ocean views.

Meanwhile one of Riu Hotels & Resorts’ two spectacular properties opened in Mauritius – the Riu Palace Mauritius –  is also a great new offering for incentives. Situated on the pristine Morne Brabant beach, the 4-star superior adults-only hotel offers an unparalleled experience amidst the turquoise Indian Ocean and lush surroundings. Boasting boasts 310 rooms, including 255 junior suites with panoramic ocean views, your guests will not only savour the peace and beauty, but also indulge in a variety of delicious cuisine at the hotel’s main restaurant and five themed restaurants (Indian, Asian, fusion, grill, and steak). Amenities include three swimming pools (one with a swim-up bar), a private pool for Elite Club guests, and stunning ocean vistas.

Whatever you seek for your incentive trip, these resorts promise the whole group an unforgettable stay in paradise!

Three elegant venues for the perfect gala dinner event

Ruins of Balaclava

Located within the 25 hectares of the 5-star Maritim Resort & Spa Mauritius, the Ruins of Balaclava are a national monument dating back to the 18th century. Set amidst lush greenery, these historic ruins offer a unique backdrop for elegant gala dinners. Imagine your group dining under the stars, surrounded by centuries-old stone walls and the Citron river. And if the rest of your meeting or event is based there, then activities like fishing, outdoor games, and even a visit to the animal farm can enhance your guests’ experience.

Château de Bel Ombre

A 19th-century mansion nestled at the heart of this timeless setting for Villas Valriche residences, this former sugar plantation-style house immerses guests in Mauritius’ rich heritage, and offers a refined gastronomic journey. Your guests will sit under specially adorned marquees, and indulged in a farm-to-fork dining experience, created from fresh local ingredients that celebrate. Soon afterwards, they’ll be showing their style on the dancefloor to the DJs that rock.

Café des Arts

Housed in an old sugar mill at Victoria 1840, Café des Arts combines contemporary art, exceptional cuisine, and a touch of history. It has a great record of hosting private and high-end events, making it perfect for gala dinners. Jazz is a speciality and makes for a great evening with a different touch to add to the ambiance and evening vibes.
