Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa

When researching the best hotel in Mauritius, it’s hard to find a winner. Maradiva Villas is one of them. Having an all-villa concept with 65 in total and membership of Leading Hotels of the World made them worth to try. The experience started when I arrived with taxi from Tamassa and had a nice check in . They offered me a welcome drink in the lobby before escorting me to the villa.

I stayed in a Luxury Villa, and it was fantastic. It had a private swimming pool, outdoor shower and sitting area outside. Inside were a beautiful design with flatscreen Tv, comfortable bed and great bathroom. The property itself is stunning, and I was excited to experience the property further.

While the villas were world class, the service was not perfect. The staff were really good but needs more training to become great. There was no name recognition, and that was quite disappointing as the occupancy was low on the night I stayed there. The facilities was really good with a beautiful spa and gym. Staying in a resort the food becomes very important as you don’t have a second choice as in the cities. I had dinner at their restaurant called Coast2Coast. I had a five-course tasting menu with specialities of the chef. The most successful one was the lamb for the main course while the dessert was a disappointing. Overall the dinner was a great experience and up to the standard, I expected from a hotel of this standard.

My overall experience in Maradiva was great. The villas and food exceeded my expectations, but I expected the service to be better. If they improve on that, this resort has the potential to become one of the world’s very best.

My opinion: Fantastic experience.
