Situated on the island paradise of Mauritius, Sofitel So Mauritius is tucked away in a carefully guarded spot off Bel Ombre’s southern coast.
It’s hard to believe this 14-acre property comprised of sugar cane plantations just two years ago, though lush land- scapes of colorful gardens, sparkling beaches and the turquoise lagoon all attest to its authentically preserved surroundings. Every bit as dazzling as the views, the staff’s five-star service begins the moment guests step into the 21st century-style welcome pavilion. Beyond hibiscus-strewn paths lie an infinity pool, fitness and spa complex, and villas decorated with floral motifs. Guests are immediately free to explore the 1,706-foot stretch of white-sand beach—a personal butler will have unpacked all belongings and stored all luggage pieces before you step foot in your villa.
