Verdura Resort in Sicily suffered a bad flood in November 2018 which resulted in damage to the golf courses and as a consequence in 2019 the resort is functioning with a first class composite course which features the best 18 holes of the two golf courses, allowing improvements to be made to the holes which were damaged by the flood.
With the tragic news in Sri Lanka 10 days ago we have suspended selling this destination for the moment, hopefully by 2020 the security situation will be much better and the country will be back to normal business as usual. Our featured Shangri-La Hambantota was unaffected unlike the Shangri-La Colombo.

The hotel is in the exclusive district of the Domaine de Bel Ombre, nestled away in the south west of Mauritius close to Le Morne Mountain. The region is the least developed and most naturally beautiful part of the Island, circa 45-50 minutes’ transfer from the airport. The best golf course on the island Heritage Golf is within walking distance of the hotel, or there is a courtesy transfer shuttle up to the clubhouse.

The Heritage Le Telfair has undergone major renovations during the summer of 2017, which is like a rebirth, for what has been an amazing hotel since its original opening in 2005. The new look hotel is stylish and even more impressive than before, it has been renamed as a Suites Hotel with Butler service as normal and it has become more of a Wellness Resort, not just golf and beach!
The resort is now based on a bed & breakfast inclusion, with supplements for half board and a gourmet all-inclusive, which are optional, but there is also a new supplement for a Wellness inclusion, for those who love health and daily massage, or treatments with added benefits. In fact, if you are a golfing and non-golfing couple, one person can add the wellness all inclusive, it does not have to be both, providing that you are on the same board basis.

The renovation work in the 2017 low season will see the hotel be restyled and redecorated to be more contemporary and less colonial in style, there will still be some colonial touches, but there will be a lot fresher colours and modern touches throughout the resort. Public areas, including bars, lobby, restaurants, pool areas and bedrooms are all being updated to this type of specification. There is also an addition Wellness building to add to the existing Spa, to give more variety of treatments and more space.

The beach at Le Telfair is pristine white sand and about 1km long, with a river running up one side, up past the lobby. The main highlights of the Heritage Le Telfair, beyond the magnificent golf course and amazing Spa, are the wide array of dining options. Indeed, if you take the gourmet bliss package which we advertise, you are entitled to dine at a wide array of restaurants at lunch and dinner, with afternoon tea and pancakes also in the mid-afternoon.

In fact, you can dine at restaurants off resort at the sister hotel Awali, including their adult only Indian restaurant and up to the Chateau Bel Ombre at the top of the golf course and the steakhouse in the Clubhouse. The highlight dining venue is Ginja, the sumptuous and atmospheric Asian venue right on the beach opposite the mouth of the river. It is the best of an array of great dining options available on the Gourmet Bliss deal.

Directors Tips – If you book on the Gourmet Bliss package, not only do you get to dine at all the best restaurants on the Estate, but you get buggies included with your free golf at Heritage Golf Club.

The course is adjacent to both Awali and Le Telfair hotels, residents of Telfair enjoy unlimited complimentary golf daily on the Gourmet Bliss deal. For Le Telfair you can benefit from free buggy hire, if you take the Gourmet Bliss package.

The golf course is hilly, there are outstanding vistas back towards the mountains, behind the resort and down to the hotels, beach and the Indian Ocean beyond. Many holes have elevated tees with sweeping fairways, which run downhill and there are a good number of uphill holes and dog legs also. Designed by Peter Matkovitch, who comes from Zimbabwe, this is his best design in the world and the course hosted the European Tour in 2016 and will host them again in November 2017.

There are some very long par fours, some short par fours and some great par threes. The finishing stretch from holes 14-18 are simply superb, a great climax to a great golf course, which has some water hazards in play to add some extra spice. The fairways are quite generous and most of the difficulty comes on the approach shots with raised greens and big run offs.

Hi David,

Thanks for your email, we’re having a fabulous time. On our second day of golf we were paired with some other clients whom I believe you are well acquainted!! We’ve since played golf together every day and spent time round the pool and over dinner. We’ve had a great time and it’s made our holiday. Today we played our last game together and I was on fire which made up for my dreadful play on the previous five games, unfortunately my Dave hasn’t been playing his best either. That said the course is gorgeous and a real pleasure to play, I feel I got my mojo back today. I’ve learned a lot from playing with David and his wife this week and feel blessed that our holidays coincided.
Which brings me to my final point .... David said to tell you that he deserves a crate of wine  for the recommendation he gave to us to book through you. ( I know that you know I’ve been put up to this!😜)
He says he’s been a very loyal customer though and for that alone I’m sure he deserves something!
I would definitely recommend your services you gave me great advice when we spoke and I’m very happy to say you’ve been spot on.
Thanks David
Best regards
Karen and Dave

Thanks for the feedback on your honeymoon, golf holiday experience Karen. Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort is my own personal favourite in Mauritius. I am delighted that you had a great time with the Simpsons!
Best Regards

The resort – Overall excellent, restaurants, service and bars, pool areas all very good, with lots of dining options. The host Melvin was also on hand every day and sorted any small problems. It would be a perfect 10, except getting a drink around the pool area was challenging, slow and intermittent in terms of service. Got better after several guests complained -  9.5/10The rooms – Very good spacious, clean and modern 10/10The service – Very friendly, professional, engaging 10/10 (ignoring the pool issue mentioned above)The cuisine – Very high standards of service and dining experience, with the exception of our Awali experience at infinity blue which was terrible – food and service. A particular standout was the Chateau and Gin-Ja Teppanyaki which I would score 11/10 for service, dining experience and location.Gourmet Bliss Package – Excellent  a genuine all inclusive package with good options on dining, drinks and wine 10/10Golf Heritage – Again excellent, a great course, friendly and helpful service, the GB worked very well, only one slight flaw, having to pay for practise balls ! Just seem out of keeping with the GB package. 9.5/10Golf Avalon – Hmmm, a bit of a ghost town course, build and they will come, lets hope for their sake. Very spread out, several times having to go on the roads to the next hole, a fair distance away. No views, despite being in the hills, not a pretty course, more links like in places. Wouldn’t choose to play there again. 5/10I hope the above is helpful.Again thanks for a great holiday-  Island Golf – 10/10Tim

Hi Tim
The Gourmet Bliss package at Heritage Le Telfair is the best all inclusive option in Mauritius and has been enhanced during the course of 2018 from previous years!
