FOLLOW THE SURF TO AN AUTHENTIC MAURITIAN ADVENTURE AT VERANDA TAMARIN HOTEL
Close your eyes and imagine the sun shimmering on your skin as you listen to the waves crashing on the golden shores of Tamarin Bay… there is no better tropical adventure than at Veranda Tamarin Hotel! With its cosy, laid-back atmosphere, this is the idyllic hideaway on the Western coast of Mauritius. Renowned for its friendly staff and authentic Mauritian charm, this retro surf style hotel is in the heart of a vibrant and arty community. The “Explorer” program is exclusive to the hotel and features excursions tailor-made for adrenaline addicts and those in search of a more cultural experience. Whether you are looking for an action-packed escape, a tranquil retreat or a fun family vacation (for kids over the age of 6), the 3-star Veranda Tamarin is the ultimate destination.
Mythical Tamarin Bay is the spot for water sports enthusiasts, with perfect wind conditions at the island’s legendary surf spot a mere 3 minutes away. An array of water activities awaits you from kayaking to paddling to big game fishing. Other activities on offer include swimming with dolphins, kite surfing and scuba diving. If you prefer on-land adventures, go trekking in Black River Gorges National Park or enjoy a sunset hike to “La Tourelle” mountain. The Yemen Salt Pans lie practically next door to the resort and the heaps of sparkling white crystals on basalt rock make for gorgeous photos. There are so many ways to experience authentic Mauritian culture at this convenient location – rent a car or scooter, ride a bike or hop on/hop off a shuttle service and go on an adventure to explore Tamarin Bay. Needing some relaxation time? Soak up the rays at the large swimming pool nestled in a vast tropical garden. By night, experience the entertainment program with live music and DJs and tropical sunset drinks.
Veranda Tamarin’s colourful and contemporary lodgings are as comfortable as they are stylish with locally crafted decor. With mountain, garden, pool and sea view options available, the Mauritian vibe will make you feel right at home. All rooms feature air conditioning, Wi-Fi, TVs, minibars, tea and coffee-making facilities, and balconies or terraces. Staying in one of the adult-only Privilege rooms gives you exclusive access to the rooftop bar and small infinity pool.
The main restaurant, Ye! Man, has a beachy surf theme with vintage surfboards on display and serves a mix of local and international flavours to entertain your taste buds. From 10 am to 6 pm, the Tribu pool bar and restaurant serve delicious pizza and light Mauritian snacks. Alternatively, you can soak up some ‘’beach culture’’ at the Crazy Fish bar, which offers a selection of salads, snacks, burgers, and Tapas-style food in the evening with a daily music program. This is the perfect spot to enjoy live local artists while sipping on a delicious rum cocktail. You can also get a taste of Mauritian specialities by visiting the funky Kas Dal kiosk that serves a selection of “street food” as well as picnic packs to take to the beach which is a short 400m walk from the hotel.
