The Residence Mauritius, Belle Mare, Mauritius

Don’t ask us how, but here at The Residence they achieve the seemingly impossible: total gorgeousness, great service and a vibe that’s so laid-back​ it’s almost horizontal.

Full of plantation house charm, this colonially-inspired hideaway is quite simply relaxation and elegance incarnate. Set in a white-washed house and filled with a super-chic blend of pared-down tones, gleaming woods and Eastern antiques, you’ll feel your cares magically float away from the moment you arrive.

Should the urge take you, you could always explore the extensive sporting facilities on both land and water, or venture into The Sanctuary – the muslin-draped spa using the finest Carita products, all while the little ones enjoy organised treasure hunts and pony rides.

A brilliant destination for discerning couples and families alike thanks to its super-relaxed atmosphere, you won’t be expected to anything more than recline on its mile of whiter-than-white sands, sip a cool cocktail by the palm-fringed pool and savour delicious treats with a sea view in its smart dining rooms.

But don’t rush things. After all, this is The Residence and here the living is most definitely easy.​
