Ambre 

Serene retreat just for adults

Backing a stretch of coral beach, this relaxed all-inclusive resort is known for its welcoming service.

From the moment you see the perfectly framed view as you arrive into the lobby you can appreciate the fantastic beachfront setting and chilled-out and friendly atmosphere of this east-coast resort. The focal point is the large infinity pool which is just steps away from the sands of the sweeping beach; the walk along the beach towards Belle Mare is an enjoyable way to while away a couple of hours. A trip here wouldn’t be complete without a spa treatment to the sound of the waves in the oceanfront palapa, or a trip out onto the lagoon on a kayak or Laser dingy if you're looking for a romantic interlude.

Why we love Ambre

  • In a sheltered east-coast setting right on a 750-metre-long sweep of pristine white sand

  • The resort has an appealingly laidback atmosphere thanks to the over-16s-only policy

  • There’s a real focus on wellness that includes everything from stretching classes to massages in a waterfront palapa 

  • Golf fans will love the fact that green fees at the idyllic Ile aux Cerfs course are included, along with land and boat transfers

With Ambre’s three restaurants all open for dinner, there’s enough variety to keep guests happy. Dolce Vita, the à la carte restaurant, serves crowd-pleasing Italian cuisine, the perfect prelude to cocktails and live entertainment in the nearby open-air bar.

Indigo
The resort’s buffet-style restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner. Every night has a different culinary theme, so you’ll enjoy a fascinating and ever-changing array of dishes.

Dolce Vita
Serving wholesome and authentic Italian cuisine, Dolce Vita is open for lunch and dinner in a prime location overlooking the beach.

La Plage
Perfect for a toes-in-the-sand light lunch or a candlelit dinner, La Plage has an inviting menu of Mediterranean and Mauritian specialities.

Coral Pool Bar
Round off the day at the al fresco Coral Bar with a created-just-for-you tropical cocktail and a local band or DJ providing live entertainment.

The H&H Lounge
Open until late every evening , the resort’s lively lobby bar is the ideal place to sip a local beer before hitting the dancefloor in the adjoining nightclub.

The resort’s on-the-sand La Plage restaurant is a wonderfully romantic setting after dark when it’s lit by candles.

What's included

All Inclusive • Breakfast at Indigo Restaurant • Lunch and dinner at Indigo Restaurant or Dolce Vita • 2-course lunch menu including soft drinks at Ile Aux Cerfs club-house • Picnic lunch for excursion days • Afternoon tea (3-5pm) • Beach and pool service (12:30-3pm) • Select drinks including a choice of imported wines, locally bottled spirits, cocktails of the day, local draft beer, mineral water, soft drinks and milk shakes (beverages at a charge after midnight at H&H Bar and Shakers Nightclub) • Minibar refilled daily with select drinks and local snacks • Land sports and select watersports.

The all-inclusive package ends at 11pm and all orders after this time are charged at à la carte prices; the package resumes at breakfast the following day.

Tucked away in a leafy corner close to the sea, the intimate spa has a steam room, sauna and whirlpool bath, along with a tempting list of face and body treatments. For the ultimate in pampering book a signature massage in one of the two rustic open-sided palapas overlooking the sand.

The sunrise stretching sessions, held on the beach, take serenity to the next level. Tai chi classes are also available.

While there is a fully equipped modern fitness centre, open from 7am to 8pm, the focus at Ambre is on the benefits of being in the fresh air. To that end, there are two floodlit tennis courts, plus beach volleyball, beach soccer and aqua gym classes in the pool to get the blood pumping.

Head to the water sports centre (open 9am to 5pm) to enjoy complimentary activities such as windsurfing, kayaking, Laser sailing and Hobie cats, snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding and glass-bottom boat rides.

Big-game fishing, water skiing, submarine dives, dolphin discovery excursions and catamaran trips can be arranged for an additional fee.

The resort has an in-house glass bottling system designed to eliminate the use of plastic bottles. Paper straws take the place of plastic ones, though you’re gently urged to ‘skip the straw’ altogether. There are various waste-reduction innovations, including turning banana peels into the yeast that’s used to make their signature bread. At check out, guests can donate to the Suncare foundation, which supports environmental and social projects on Mauritius.

If golf is your thing, you couldn’t have come to a better place. Unlimited green fees, plus boat transfers, at the stunning Bernhard Langer-designed course on Ile des Cerfs are included.

The all-inclusive package ends at 11pm and all orders after this time are charged at à la carte prices; the package resumes at breakfast the following day.

Guests over 16 years are welcome at this resort.

Minimum stay: 5 nights for guests staying over 31 Dec.

Compulsory Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve gala dinners, supplements apply.
