‘Barefoot Romance on one of the best beaches in the Indian Ocean’ – This is how the Trou aux Biches has been described on many occasions, and it’s difficult to disagree! The hotel was established as one of the first luxury hotels in Mauritius, and therefore has one of the best locations. The chalet style accommodation are scattered throughout the gardens facing the Indian Ocean. Each of the Mauritian Chalets houses three or four individual hotel rooms.
All of the bedrooms, apartments, and suites have private bathrooms with bathtub, shower and wc. There are 127 standard rooms, all set in intimate tiled or thatched Mauritian Chalets with spacious bedrooms and terrace or balconies. They are 30 sq m in size.
There are 23 superior rooms, on the ground floor, and 31 on the first floor, again they have spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms with separate showers with terraces or balconies which face towards the ocean.
The type of accommodation at the Trou aux Biches which really shines are the suites. They are split level, and located close to the beach. The suites all have very large bathrooms and dressing areas, and en suite bedrooms upstairs, and a large private balcony offering unrivaled views. Downstairs there is a terrace, spacious sitting and dining room, plus a kitchenette. The most luxurious element is your valet who will tend your needs and requirements, offering the most personal of services. There are only 3 of these suites, so early booking is advised, and they are all an impressive 110sq m in size.
Finally the two bedroom family apartments are ideally located on the ground floor, in the center of the resort. There is a large master bedroom with sitting area, and a big ensuite bathroom with separate shower. The children’s bedroom has an en suite shower room and a lockable entrance for a babysitter if required. They can accommodate 2 adults and 3 children.
