Rebalance your energy and chakras with Reiki

Bathed in light and caressed by a light breeze, Heritage Le Telfair’s Reiki studio is a haven of peace. Ketan, the resort’s smiling, soft-spoken Reiki Master, invites you to take a seat. He begins the session by assessing your chakras to detect any energy imbalances that need rectifying.

VLH sets its sights on the west coast with Veranda Tamarin.

The group has acquired Hotel Tamarin, the iconic hangout of local surfers in the 70s and 80s. It aims to transform the hotel by the first of November into Veranda Resorts’ latest hospitality offering. The resort’s dramatic revamp will encapsulate the hippie-chic coastal lifestyle Hotel Tamarin was known for, with a fresh, modern twist: design details include rattan furniture with a bohemian flair, pops of neon and airy linen.

Starred Chef David Toutain Curates Heritage Le Château’s Summer Menu

The Heritage mother brand encompasses a dozen restaurants spread across its two uber-luxurious hotels, Heritage Le Telfair and Heritage Awali. There are cuisines and menus for every palate, whether vegetarian, vegan, carnivorous, or flexitarian. The particularity of Heritage Le Château is that it is set on the large estate of Bel Ombre and not inside one of our hotels. Recently the old colonial home underwent major restoration works by Perrot & Richard, the architecture firm that also restored the Sainte Chapelle, the Grand Palais and the Comédie Française. With the château being restored to its former glory, it only made sense to curate a summer menu that reflects the exquisite beauty of the Château.

Escape the Ordinary

As you know, Heritage Resorts has undergone some renovations and a rebranding exercise for certain of its components, namely the chateau, the nature reserve, and its focus on wellness. These changes reflect the group’s desire to strengthen the Heritage brand, and further merge its hospitality and leisure segments.

In line with the feeling of renewal that permeates our hotels, our teams have conceived a festive and unique E-O-Y calendar, “Escape the Ordinary,” which reflects the brand’s revamped identity. We have devised a variety of events and experiences that we categorized, each with an overarching theme: In Style, Flavours, Mauritian Indulgence, Wellness Bliss, Happiness, Tee Time and The Great Outdoors. The idea is to delight guests of all ages no matter their differing interests.
