Stay at FS Anahita
Discover a world of exclusivity and zen, as you enter a 64-acre resort enveloped by exotic gardens and a pristine lagoon. Unwind in the shadow of Bambous Mountain. Or explore nature’s finest as you cycle along immersive paths. Take to the jungles beside an expert guide. Alternatively, horseback riding along the coast comes with its own surprise.Return to your abode by late afternoon, for the charms of your stylish thatched villa make it hard to stay away. Whether it’s a siesta in your private sanctuary or an indulgent spa treatment that calls, this is the time to replenish and revive. Once the milky colours of evening arrive, the mood gets magical. Sample local dishes at the waterfront restaurant. Savour dessert to the call of native birds fluttering in the ancient forest nearby.
Sat along the island’s glamorous east coast, the property is a 45-minute drive from the airport. A more convenient helicopter transfer straight to the resort’s helipad takes about 15 minutes, and is perfect for those wishing to arrive in true luxury and style.
All 136 of the hotel’s roomy guest stays are located in stand-alone, open-plan villas, complete with al fresco showers and private plunge pools. Choose from one to five bedroom abodes, and a terrace overlooking either the gardens, mangrove, ocean or beach.
Who is it for
This is a haven suited to both couples and families, however there is no adults-only area in the resort. Therefore, honeymooners seeking a more intimate getaway may prefer elsewhere. Golfers, however, will relish the championship courses on offer.
Facilities & activities
Four pools, three private beaches, two golf tracks, a fitness centre and an overwater spa make up the generous facilities here. Unique high-end experiences such as boxing with a former Mauritian champ are also the norm. Meanwhile, the resort houses four dynamic restaurants, including an overwater deck looking into a live aquarium.
