bushbaby rating

This charming resort, nestled in 14 hectares of established tropical gardens, is situated on the mile long Flic en Flac beach - one of our favourite in Mauritius. The friendly and informal resort features thatched bungalows with a private terrace, perfect for soaking up the pretty setting with views to the Indian Ocean through the swaying palm trees. With 5 restaurants serving international cuisine, 3 bars and a friendly and efficient team, a stay here makes for an unforgettable beach holiday, all at a reasonable price too. You can also enjoy access to all the facilities at sister hotel Sugar Beach Resort, just a short stroll away along white sands.
