Hotel Sugar Beach Flic en Flac
From the superb Manor House to the Villas and La Rhumerie, Sugar Beach Resort Mauritius, resort's unique colonial architecture and style, with its Creole or rattan furniture, recreate the splendour of the island's finest sugar domains.There are 170 Standard guest-rooms in the Manor House and in the Villas laid out in an arc in two villages located north and south of the Manor House. Space is as precious a luxury here as it was in the sugar-plantation mansions of yesteryear. An alley lined with palm-trees and orange cannas leads to the Manor House, which epitomises the elegant lifestyle of the plantations of old, at the heart of the resort. All the Villas, evocatively named after sugar estates, open on the magnificent and impeccably kept garden and the Indian Ocean.Spacious and luminous, on the ground-floor and upstairs, the rooms celebrate the warm and bright colours of the tropics, beautifully complemented by the Creole charm of the rattan furniture.The most demanding of gourmets are spoilt for choice between the world's flavours of Mon Plaisir, the excellent Mediterranean and Italian fare of the refined Citronella's Café and the seafood delights of Paul et Virginie - not to mention the heady scents and amber nectars of La Rhumerie.Mon PlaisirVery spacious, furnished with mosaic-and-wrought-iron tables and overlooking the swimming-pool and the gardens, Sugar Beach Resort's main restaurant is an open invitation to pleasurable self-indulgence and the fifth deadly sin. Here even the air conspires to whet one's appetite as the tropical garden's floral scents waft in on the sea breeze and fill the place up to its high ceilings.Citronella's CaféFacing the sea, between Sugar Beach Resort and La Pirogue, guests can savour the delights of the Mediterranean's sunny cuisines and their delicate olive-oil preparations in the cordial warmth of Citronella's dining-room, with its fine wrought-iron tables, or in the shade of the café's teak terrace. The open, rounded kitchen is equipped with a wood-fired oven for baking bread and pizzas and adorned with jars of whole lemons or stuffed olives steeped in olive oil. Between beef carpaccio, squid-ink risotto, rack of lamb in dried-tomato pastry, and traditional tiramisu, let your taste buds rejoice in the singsong accents of the Mediterranean. Paul & Virginie RestaurantRustic, charming and located right by the beach at sister resort La Pirogue, the entirely redesigned à-la carte Paul et Virginie affords a sublime view on the Indian Ocean in the warm and cosy privacy of thatch-topped dining islets beside or overhanging La Pirogue's superb new infinity pool.The Plantation BarOverhanging the very large swimming-pool, which surrounds it, the sea-facing Plantation Bar is the heart of the resort. Open on all sides, convivial and relaxed, with a huge bar-counter, it welcomes adults and children all day until pre-dinner aperitif time. In the evening the magnificent flood-lit pool becomes the focal point for the resort's floor shows.Beach & Pool-Side ServiceFor those wishing to enjoy a casual spot of lunch on the beach, a golf-cart proposes refreshments from 10am to 5pm and a choice of pizzas (Sugar Beach, Country etc.) or excellent Parisian baguette sandwiches (with smoked marlin, tuna, salami or ham) served under guests' thatch-parasols.Between its kilometre-long beach, crystal-clear sea and splendid English-style gardens, Sugar Beach Resort offers its guests so many different activities and pursuits as to suit all tastes. From total relaxation on the beach and such unhurried pursuits as croquet and yoga sessions in the gardens for those wishing to make the most of the prevailing serenity of the place, to more dynamic activities like water-skiing, sailing or scuba-diving for the more energetically inclined, be they beginners or experts.
