If your idea of a holiday is relaxing on a white sand beach from dawn to dusk, Mauritius is the place for you. But perhaps you’re keen to escape the “sun lounger-swim in the ocean-sun lounger” routine, or prefer a dash of adventure to simply lazing around. In that case, lace up your sneakers and make sure you’re hungry – Heritage Le Telfair has got a treat in store!
With a different activity available every day of the week, it’s impossible to get bored. Heritage Le Telfair offers a programme of nature-focused and cultural experiences suitable for the whole family.
Nestled between verdant mountains and an azure lagoon, Heritage Bel Ombre consists of 2,500 hectares of dramatic landscapes. Capitalising on the estate’s natural beauty, we offer nature lovers a wide range of both relaxing and athletic outdoor activities. Every Tuesday, a speedboat will take you out to the middle of the lagoon to admire the dazzling spectacle of the Mauritian sunset, a glass of champagne and a few canapés in hand. On Fridays, head to Heritage Nature Reserve, located a few minutes from the hotel, for a wellness walk that culminates on a mountaintop, allowing you to bask in the day’s last few rays of sunshine.
You’ll also find plenty to enjoy at Heritage Le Telfair if you’re passionate about culture. Unleash your creative side with our Monday evening art therapy sessions run by a Mauritian artist. After a friendly cocktail at the Cavendish Bar and an art demonstration, the artist will present his work. It’s the perfect opportunity to support local talent and take home a unique souvenir of your stay. Thursdays are more active: Mauritian start-up Explore Nou Zil will take you on an electro-bike tour of the island’s wild south. During this fun and rewarding excursion, you’ll discover the region’s most iconic sites, from the traditional village of Souillac to Gris-Gris, the spectacular “Crying Rock” and the Savanne River – places whose names are as charming as they are!
Epicures can savour three different activities that are as delicious as they are fascinating. Every Wednesday, the Cavendish Bar offers a happy hour in honour of the island’s most typical cocktail: a rhum arrangé bursting with tropical favours. The foodie festivities continue into the weekend: on Saturdays, take a tour of the estate’s exceptional wine cellars at Annabella’s or in the historic setting of Heritage Le Château. In a nod to French tradition, each vintage is paired with a different and delicious cheese. On Sundays, put your culinary talent to work in the kitchen at Annabella’s by taking part in a relaxed and enjoyable cooking class. But you’d do well to concentrate – you’ll be served whatever you prepare for lunch!
