Travel Dream - Winter 2013/14 - page 10

estled on the North West coast of Mauritius,
in a secluded corner of Turtle Bay, Angsana
Balaclava Mauritius, the island’s premier 5 star
boutique resort, offers a very romantic hideaway ideal
for couples and honeymooners looking for privacy
and barefoot relaxation.
Benefiting from the protection of the surrounding
Moka mountains, the resort enjoys some of the most
favourable year round weather conditions inMauritius,
and there are few evenings when the performance of
the setting sun over the ocean does not gift incurable
romantics with the most idyllic backdrop.
Having opened just under two years ago, guests will
discover a small but perfectly designed retreat
composed of just 51 suites and one indulgent villa. In
keeping with the high design ethics of Banyan Tree
Hotels & Resorts, the property is rich in architectural
detail, and is a splendid fusion of Oriental, Occidental
& African influences.
There are four types of suite - Garden Suite, Deluxe
Pool Suite, Ocean View Pool Suite and Beachfront Pool
Suite - of which the latter three types come with their
own private plunge pools. If being close to the sea is
the preference then the Beachfront Pool Suites offer
possibly the closest accommodation to the ocean in
Mauritius. For the ultimate indulgence, the Imperial
Pool Villa is located on its own private beachfront with
three private pools (a huge infinity pool as well as a jet
pool and Children’s pool).
At the centre of the resort two swimming pools
overlap via waterfalls, leading off the extensive
seawater“Laguna”pool with sand ‘beach’, with a fresh
water lap pool below. There is also an indoor vitality
pool at the award-winning Angsana Spa.
A variety of dining options include Asian Fusion cuisine
at the main restaurant, Oryza, and classic grill options
including seafood favourites like barbecued lobster at
the beachfront Passion Grill. The latter will be featuring
Mediterranean specialties in the evening also. Bespoke
private dining is a popular alternative, either in the
privacy of one’s suite or villa or at a specially set up
table for two on a remote corner of the beach.
Angsana Balaclava Mauritius makes for an idyllic
tropical dream beach holiday and yet it offers even
more to those who want to experience the sights of
the island. It lies just 15 minutes drive in between the
shopping of the capital, Port Louis and, in the opposite
direction, the buzzy strip of Grand Baie.
