Heritage The Villas 

Your luxury home from home

An inspired choice for family groups, these beautiful villas offer privacy and independence but with the benefits of two five-star resorts close at hand.

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect location for a villa holiday than a 6,000-acre former sugar plantation by the sea complete with its own nature reserve. At Heritage The Villas the impression of spaciousness carries through to the villas themselves, with their large, open-plan spaces indoors and generous outdoor terraces screened by tropical greenery. It would be tempting to stay put in your multi-generational family bubble, enjoying the infinity pool, the views down to the sea and stress-reducing included services such as daily housekeeping, plus optional extras such as a private chef. But the joy of Heritage The Villas is that the Domaine is also home to two five-star resorts, so if you want to mingle there are plenty of restaurants, bars and more in which to do so, all just a short golf-cart ride away.

Why we love Heritage The Villas

  • These luxury villas have a magnificent hillside setting in a quiet part of a former sugar plantation 

  • All of the villas have private infinity pools, regardless of their size and location

  • Villa guests have access to the other areas of the estate, including a beach club, two five-star hotels, two championship golf courses and a nature reserve

  • If you’d rather not cook, there’s a fabulous Gourmet Bliss All Inclusive package that covers most of the Domaine’s restaurants and bars

The selection of places to eat on the Domaine covers everything from haute cuisine in what was once the estate owner’s house to more laidback options by the beach or one of the five swimming pools.

Le Château de Bel Ombre
The fine-dining restaurant is housed in the historic plantation house at the heart of the estate and offers refined international dishes created using local ingredients, many grown on the Domaine itself.

Heritage C Beach Club
If you’re not breakfasting in your villa, Heritage C Beach Club is a great place to start the day with the freshest of dishes and a restorative dip in the sea.

Annabella’s
Open for breakfast and dinner, Annabella’s serves up healthy, mood-enhancing dishes in an elegant brasserie-style setting.

Gin’ja\  Overlooking the lagoon, Gin’ja specialises in Pan-Asian cooking: a la carte in the evening and a street-food buffet in the middle of the day.

Le Palmier
This al fresco eatery is great for toes-in-the-sand lunches, suppers or just drinks beside the sea.

The Cavendish Bar & Lounge
With the feel of a piano bar, this relaxed garden lounge serves all-day drinks along with light bites and pancakes in the middle of the day.

The Club House
The Heritage Golf Club’s restaurant has simple but delicious food during the day; two evenings a week it also hosts O’Grill steakhouse.

Savana\  Occupying four pavilions surrounded by mirrored ponds, Savana has delicious international buffets at breakfast and dinner.

Kuzini\  This à la carte restaurant serves Italian specialities every evening.

Zafarani
The menu is full of delicious creations conjured up by the Indian-born chef – it’s perfect for an informal grown-up dinner (adults-only).

Infinity Blue
Seafood fans will love this rustic spot, where you can lunch or dine on Creole cuisine and sip cocktails on the beach itself or on the terrace overlooking it.

Zenzi Bar
A relaxed pool bar by day, it turns into a lively cocktail bar at night.

**Amafrooty **
This laidback poolside venue provides snacks and light dishes for those who can’t tear themselves away from their loungers.

Boma
At this open-air pop-up, you dine around a campfire under the stars listening to the beats of African drums – a memorable experience.

Instead of eating out, for a truly one-off experience you can arrange to have a meal cooked by a private chef in your own villa – great for a special occasion.

The spacious Seven Colours spas* based in Heritage Le Telfair and Heritage Awali are a haven of peace, where the loudest sound is running water from the pools in the lush garden. They takes a personalised and holistic approach to wellbeing that encompasses everything from diet to spirituality, with an enviable offering of treatments and experiences to refresh even the weariest traveller: the signature Mauritian massage* is an hour of utter relaxation.

There are yoga, pilates, qi gong and tai chi classes at the spas in the Domaine’s two hotels.

There are fully equipped 24-hour fitness centres at Le Telfair and Awali.

An array of land-based activities such as beach volleyball, table tennis, bike tours*, guided treks* in the nature reserve, badminton, beach tennis and beach football. Some come at an extra cost, including golf lessons (there are two courses), wellness walks and horse riding.

Mauritius Diving Adventures runs a 5 Star PADI Diving Centre* on the Domaine.

The Cabana nautical centre at the Heritage C Beach Club offers free water activities, such as windsurfing, laser sailing, kayaking, snorkelling and water bikes. For a supplement, there is also kite surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, snorkelling trips and glass-bottom boat trips.

Helping to reduce food miles, Bel Ombre’s fertile acres produce seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs for the restaurants and bars, along with honey from its own hives. Heritage works with a local organisation called Foodwise that distributes surplus food from the hotel kitchens to those in need. There’s an in-house bottling plant to cut down on plastic bottles, and an ongoing project to eliminate single-use plastics altogether. All wastewater is treated on the site and used for irrigation, and there’s also a rainwater collection system.

Children of all ages and interests are superbly catered for across the Domaine, with various clubs at both Heritage Awali and Heritage Le Telfair. Baby Timomo deals with the very youngest, up to 35 months, giving new parents and grandparents a few hours of downtime. Timomo Kids’ Club welcomes children from three to 11, while teenagers have a separate programme packed with activities to get them moving.

Access to Heritage La Réserve Golf Links, a private 18-hole championship golf course (par 72) (which is exclusive to Heritage Resorts guests), opening December 2023 (with paying green fees), and the 9-hole La Château Golf Course (with paying green fees unless included in your holiday)
