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.
