Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort



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.

      Directors View

      I was able to see the new course which is opening in 2023 – the La Reserve Golf Links at Heritage Golf Resorts, Bel Ombre in Mauritius.

      Another superb course designed by Peter Matkovich and co designed with Louis Oosthuizen, set on a remarkable piece of land next to the Valriche Biosphere Nature Reserve on high land laid out over three plateaus with exceptional views of the sea and mountains.

      It will be a contemporary links design, with only 3 up hill holes and mostly spectacular roller coaster down hill tee shots and the course launches from the highest point of the terrain! Holes 1 – 4 are absolutely sensational visually.

      Eventually you twist down the terrain on hillsides to a dramatic final hole which is a downhill to a green beside a new and exciting golf clubhouse offering breathtaking views up the course to the mountains beyond, a UNESCO world heritage site.

      The links style pot bunkers match the links greens which have loads of run offs and all varied shapes and sizes- so much variety.

      The fairways are generous – but the approach play will challenge the very best players.

      In mid December 2023 the La Reserve Golf Links will host the DP World Golf Tour Afrasia Mauritius Open Championship and will be beamed across the golfing world on TV.

      Book early for 2024 to enjoy what will be the best course in Africa and a very unique design, La Reserve will only be open for Heritage Telfair and Awali guests and founder local members. The Clubhouse will not be open till the Mauritius Open week!

      We had a superb holiday as always!

      The only slight thing that comes to mind is getting used to the ‘Mauritian time scale’ with the waiting staff. It was interesting that one of our group (forget who) was chatting to one of the staff, asking how they found working for the hotel and what sort of training they were given. Interestingly they don’t seem to follow a particular training scheme but are just generally told what to do, which possibly explains the slightly chaotic service where the staff seem to be ‘hanging around’ and not being able to pick up on the visual signs that service is needed. They are, however, always amazingly polite.

      The Avalon was a great experience and I think everyone enjoyed the course, with most people saying they would enjoy playing it again. The food was good, was it my imagination that they seemed a little light on staff in the bar?

      The flights, the airport experience and the transport to and from the hotel couldn’t be faulted.

      We have to say that the holiday was amongst the best we have experienced and we have nothing but good things to say. Even the issues concerning check in and check out were handled well by the hotel (along with Chris and Jane) and really didn’t bother us.

      We found the hotel exceptional and from senior management down to the many gardeners everybody bought into the ethos of making the guests feel special and their stay memorable. One things that we particularly liked was the balance between the formality of a 5 star hotel and the informality which makes for a relaxing holiday. I know that at times Chris and Jane were pulling their hair out about certain arrangement that didn’t quite happen but they insulated us from that aspect of Mauritian culture and we only saw the good side.

      The trip to Avalon was a highlight not only as it was for Mickey’s special day but we thought the course was stunning and the short picturesque downhill par 4 was possibly one of the best holes I have enjoyed.

      Air Mauritian business class flights were ok but nothing special and the experience was about what I expected.

      All in all a wonderful hotel on a wonderful island where we were looked after by lovely friendly people providing superb food influenced by the amazing fusion of cultures.

      Of course your superb service to iron out any wrinkles before departure played its part but I’m sorry to say David we sort of take that as a given.

      We hope that you have enjoyed your stay too. Have a safe trip home and a very Happy Christmas.

      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 RegardsDavid

      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 -  9.5/10

      The rooms – Very good spacious, clean and modern 10/10

      The 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 10/10

      Golf 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. 9.5/10

      Golf 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. 5/10

      I hope the above is helpful.

      Again thanks for a great holiday-  Island Golf – 10/10


      Hi TimThe 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!
