Stauch Vorster Architects debuts St. Regis Mauritius Resort

St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, debuted the St. Regis Mauritius Resort, marking the brand's first hotel in Africa and the 30th St. Regis hotel in the world.

Designed by Stauch Vorster Architects with interiors by Trevor Julius of design firm dsgn, the St. Regis Mauritius Resort is said to be modeled on a Victorian sugar baron's manor house set in a historical estate. With terraces, rooms and colonnades, the resort is reminiscent of the destination's colonial past.

The resort has 172 guestrooms and suites, ranging from 700 to 2,300 square feet, all with terraces and views of the Indian Ocean. The beachfront St. Regis Villa features a private entrance, four bedrooms with private pools and gardens, entertainment and dining areas, an infinity pool, a bar and private spa treatment room.

The resort's signature restaurant, Simply India, has a menu developed by Michelin-starred celebrity chef Atul Kochhar. Led by executive chef Olivier Belliard, the St. Regis Mauritius Resort offers six other distinct gastronomic experiences ranging from Le Manoir Dining Room with a menu inspired by a blend of French and traditional Mauritian cuisine, to the modern Asian menu at Floating Market, and a beachside spot for casual oceanfront dining at The Boathouse Bar & Grill. Meanwhile, inspired by the St. Regis New York hotel which opened in 1904, The 1904 Bar offers beverages.

 

The St. Regis Mauritius Resort is home to the region's first Iridium Spa, offering 22,730 square feet of surroundings including a full-service salon, relaxation lounge, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms, as well as a dedicated men's grooming salon and a 24-hour fitness club. Featuring 12 treatment rooms with ocean views, the Iridium Spa works with beauty and skincare brands Valmont and Bella Luccè to indulge guests with bespoke spa treatments.

The Kite Flyers Club offers complimentary childcare services for children from four to 12 years old, including recreational highlights such as beach bonfires and kite-making, as well as facilities like indoor and outdoor play areas, the children's kitchen corner and a swimming pool. Optional activities include guided excursions to the zoo and sugarcane museum, cooking classes and horseback riding.

Situated in the heart of the resort, the manor house comprises seven suites with in-room spa facilities, a private 24-seat cinema, a Drawing Room for indoor entertainment and games, a swimming pool, as well as a library and conservatory. Other leisure facilities at the resort include a beachside swimming pool, a tennis court and a resort boutique. For private celebrations, the Astor Room can be booked for events hosting up to 100 people.
