New luxury resort opens in SW Mauritius
June 25, 2010

Villas Valriche Experience, a new luxury villa resort opens in September 2010 in the naturally beautiful Domaine de Bel Ombre on the less developed, southwest coast of Mauritius . This Indian Ocean destination is known for its high end hotels but the luxury villa concept is relatively new to the island and provides a fresh option for golfers and group s who are searching for the ultimate golfing holiday with all the space and privacy that a luxury villa provides.

To celebrate the launch of Villas Valriche Experience, guests booking a week’s stay in September and October will benefit from two free green fees, a free golf lesson for each person, free use of a golf cart and reduced rates at nearby Tamarina and Le Paradis golf courses. And for large golfing groups, the 11th person goes free when a booking for ten is made.

The resort is made up of 40 spacious three and four bedroom villas with contemporary décor, plush furnishings and state of the art technology in the kitchen and bathrooms. The living areas easily accommodate large groups and are fully equipped with all the mod cons including iPod docking systems, Nintendo Wii game consoles, plasma screen TVs as well as free internet access and international satellite channels. Each villa is designed with parties and get-togethers in mind and as such, the large landscaped gardens each include a large infinity pool, a spacious patio with veranda, a top of the range Weber BBQ, an outdoor bar area and even a sheltered heated shower.

Adjoining the resort is the magnificent 18-hole golf course of the Golf du Château, which stretches out over 100 hectares. The course is both challenging and varied, providing golfers of all abilities with an opportunity to improve their technique and know-how on a championship course (Par 72), just seconds away from their accommodation.

This course is certainly one of the most remarkable on the island with an amazing view over a lagoon and white sand coast on one side and the hills of the Black River Gorges National Park on the other. Facilities include an additional 9-hole par 3 course, putting green, chipping green, golf carts, caddies, a driving range and golf clubhouse.

For a break away from the golf course, a trip to the adjacent Valriche Nature Reserve for some soft adventure is a must. Activities include night excursions in 4x4s, discovery tours and mountain biking, all against the breathtaking backdrop of mountains, waterfalls and rainforest with wild deer darting in and out of view. There are also numerous water sports to try out such as kayaking or deep sea fishing; land sports such as quad biking and archery or team sports such as volleyball and beach football.

From the 1st December, guests will be able to enjoy the Bel Ombre Beach Club which will include a swimming pool, chill-out area, beach sports and two restaurants - perfect for social gatherings in the evening.

The e-Concierge service on the Villas Valriche Experience website makes organising a group holiday with lots of individual preferences easy. Guests that would like to expand on their golfing holiday to create a bespoke action packed itinerary with excursions can do so prior to arrival, in the comfort of their own homes.

In addition to a host of in-villa services which includes a 24 hour concierge, private chef and personal butler, guests can enjoy full access to ten restaurants and facilities such as the fully equipped gyms at neighbouring five-star golf and spa resorts, Heritage Le Telfair and Heritage Awali.
