Heritage Resorts on the Domaine de Bel Ombre provides much more than accommodation. Spanning over 2,500 hectares, the Domaine de Bel Ombre is the perfect backdrop for the Dodo Trail. Various areas within the Domaine, such as the 1300 hectares Frederica Nature Reserve or the 5,000 sqm of spa, will allow participants to train for the race and rest, whilst their family enjoy the plethora of activities and services: : 12 restaurants, 8 bars, a beach club, a kite surf spot and – last but not least – an 18-hole championship Golf Course…

The Dodo Trail, an extraordinary human adventure

The Dodo Trail offers four unique and challenging trails for experienced runners as well as for beginners and families: Xtreme Dodo Trail, Ti Dodo Trail, Mini Dodo Trail and Dodo Fun Run.

The trail is a unique opportunity to discover the most beautiful landscapes of the southwest of Mauritius, such as the view on Benitiers island or the Black River Gorges’ National Park.

Not only is the Dodo Trail perfectly in line with the “nature” experience provided by Heritage Resorts, but the race also fits with Heritage Resorts’ commitment to protect and conserve our natural heritage. To achieve this commitment we have been collaborating with the Mauritius Wildlife Foundation to protect the endemic and indigenous flora and fauna and reforest the Frederica Nature Reserve, the use of natural products at the Seven Colours Spa, implementation of new techniques for an environmentally responsible golf course, setting up a glass recycling plant and longterm commitment in lagoon preservation in association with REEF, a local NGO focused on marine preservation.

On May 24, 2014, The C Beach Club will welcome the French singer Yoann Fréget, winner of season 2 of the French competition series The Voice.

Preceded by a seated dinner, the live concert of Yoann Fréget will combine the singer’s original compositions with a few cover songs. A Facebook competition has been launched to offer the lucky winner one night for two at the 5* hotel Heritage Le Telfair, a dinner for two at the C Beach Club followed by the concert, as well as the exciting opportunity to meet the singer after the show.

Yoann Fréget recently released his first album, “Quelques heures avec moi” (A few hours with me), which was met with great success. One of its tracks “Sauras-tu m’aimer” (Will you know how to love me) has been chosen for the original soundtrack of Christophe Gans’ latest movie, Beauty and the Beast, starring Vincent Cassel and Lea Seydoux.

The singer’s success is due to his incredible vocal performances during The Voice. The TV show is broadcasted on TF1 and it is currently airing its third season. The concept of the show is the following: a judging panel made up of four francophone artists (Garou, Florent Pagny, Jenifer and Mika) listen to contestants’ performances during blind auditions, choose singers to join their team and finally vote for the best singer at the end of the series.
