Sands Suites Resort and Spa

TripAdvisor Review
Mauritius, Indian Ocean
Wolmar

Combining an elegant attention to detail and an exquisite location, Sands Resort is one of Mauritius' must-visit hotels. From the hotel you can look out over Wolmar Beach near Flic-en-Flac, its smooth white sand, deep blue lagoon and distant mountain peak –a view that's straight out of a dream of paradise.

Its elegance and traditional style make Sands Resort a very special holiday destination. Sands resort doesn't just have that authentic look; it has the feel of a very prestigious hotel. Staff are diligent and attentive – and determined to ensure that you take back the very best memories of Mauritius.

The spa facility with a gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam baths is well worth several visits.

Even with all of the attractions of the beaches and the sights of Flic-en-Flac, Sands Resort boasts an impressive selection of games and sports facilities too. From golf and fishing to scuba diving and dolphin watching, it's safe to say that there are activities for everyone to enjoy.

Deciding where to eat presents an interesting challenge. You're free to take your pick of three restaurants, each with its own style and flavour. Do make sure you try the Pink Peppercorn for some fabulously fresh grilled foods on the beach.

Your guestroom at Sands Suites Resort and Spa:

Continuing the elegant theme, rooms at the Sands Resort hotel are all beautifully decorated and furnished. All Superior Suites are air conditioned and feature luxury bathrooms for an even more indulgent stay. You'll also have a satellite TV, telephone, minibar, safe and tea and coffee makers. All Superior Suites are sea facing with a private balcony or terrace. Deluxe Suites are located on the ground floor and the Beachfront Suites are within close proximity to the beach.

The Local Area

This elegant resort hotel has a spectacular location overlooking Wolmar Beach near Flic-en-Flac on the western side of the island. The white sand stands out in sharp contrast to the sparkling clear blue waters of the lagoon and the deeper blue of Le Morne Mountain in the background. Built in typical cool airy Mauritian style, the resort stands in beautifully landscaped gardens with thatch roofed open sided restaurant and bar overlooking the large pool and the beach beyond.

The best U ever visit, better than Lux Le Morne

Hi, I'm David from the Czech Republic, I travel the world and always choose the best. Sands has exceeded all my expectations, the service and care they give us is sincere and cordial. It's where it's important to feel how you feel. They are happy when you are. it's like making love to my amazing wife. We are grateful to be here and we really appreciate the hospitality they give us. I feel at home here. Service and care is at the highest possible level. You will not find many such places in the world, of course it is also a place Mauritius is a paradise. Thank you all at Sands.mu for the most beautiful days in our lives.

BLISS

Overwhelmingly good professional friendly service. Faultless. Really spacious room bathroom with shower and bath, balcony overlooking gentle sea 20 yards away...

Open plan re edition dining bar and restaurants in a crescent around the turquoise shallow safe bea h. Soft white sand and coral fragments. Dolphins in the bay each morning with ages little boats of followers. Gentle live music over dinner atmospheric. Mauritian dancers one night. Corals have been affected by warming so need boats to get to snorkeling, Car hire cheap and roads easy to navigate, very good quality. Loved exploring all over especially 8 waterfall hie , botanical Gardens, la vanilla zoo, and e o tourist sites.

Food excellent and staff even laid on special curries when requested. Beware the ginger punch as it has one!

Thank you to all the team reception cleaning gardeners everyone was more than helpful and made our holiday perfect.

TripAdvisor Review

Very nice hotel , top food , good staff and service but the ocean at the hotel it was a really big disappointment.

Review by 822mihaid Southampton, United Kingdom

Hotel it is very good to stay and to enjoy the time , food very good, staff very professional, nothing wrong with resort but : Negative: the ocean at this hotel it is really bad , we regret that we choose this location not because of hotel but because of the location and the sea. Really disappointed. If you are interested in beautiful ocean and beach this isn’t the right location...

You need to travel far from this resort to see a beautiful beach and sea, so keep this in mind . If you are interested strictly in hotel and food , it is absolutely ok .

Hospitality from the heart

Review by imre2018 Bucharest, Romania

Our destination for the winter vacation was Mauritius. We arrived to the Sands Suites Resort & Spa

my wife and me are very experienced travelers. We can easily spot the difference between professional and well learned hospitality and genuine, from the heart behavior...

From the moment of our arrival to the last minute of our stay Sands was much more than just a tourist resort. We felt at home ( wish at home we could get the services and the beautiful sunny weather ) All the personal from the welcoming staff at the reception , to the team taking care of our room, to the people from the restaurants to the spa team all of them are remarkably involved to make our stay super pleasant and comfortable. The room is big, the dressing comfortable , the bathroom spacious and well equipped. One of the nicest place we stayed. But as I said the difference is made by the people. In 15 days we had not one single moment of disappointment, from Alvin at the reception when we arrived, to Selvina who showed us our room and was there for us every day , to Brenda who made all our request from airline ticket changes to tours around this Paradise possible and easy from Jerome who took care of our special gastronomic whishes , all were there to make our stay memorable. The location is so beautiful that you don't ever want to leave. The turquoise ocean with the big green mountain behind, a super huge swimming pool, it is surreal. Probably that's the way heaven is. The restaurants are just great , breakfast to dinner and in-between. Our New Year Eve was one of the most beautiful since many years , sparkling, elegant and delicious plates , great music, nice table companion. It was a wonderful vacation , a lovely experience. I am very sure that the difference is made 100% by the undeniable professionalism of Guillaume , the general manager. He is practically everywhere all day long. I saw him all around the resort, never tired, always smiling , with solution to all requests. His team should be proud of him and him about his team. There is no question that we will return to Sands and we will highly recommend it to all our friends. With the natural beauty around you, with this comfortable resort and the friendly team you can be sure that you feel like in Paradise

Birthday dinner and excellent

Review by anusha0811 Quatre Bornes

My husband surprised me with a dinner at sands for my birthday and this hotel is flawless From security team to restaurant team member, they all have great personality and appreciation for their work I should say that I had the best cocktail ever at the bar and my son took his coconut water which was so nice. The bar man also kindly cut his coconut water so that he could enjoy the cream. For dinner, we wanted to eat gastronomic but unfortunately had to choose for buffet as my son had limited choice...

The buffet was excellent and flawless as well. My son enjoyed his pasta and the restaurant staff were so kind and attentive and they made sure that everything was fine for dinner. I was also offered a birthday cake and the cake was great as well Thank you so much sands resort for making this memorable and value your staff to keep the standard

The next time we should choose to stay.

Thanks Anusha
