Tamassa is a new Mauritian experience! The atmosphere is one of eternal youth, friendly, cheerful and enthusiastic. The 4-star Tamassa stands at the end of a long avenue of mature coconut palms towering skywards. A picture postcard landscape stretches across sugarcane fields to the mountains beyond. The south-west is the most unspoilt part of Mauritius, with spectacular walks and drives through lush, tropical hillsides and a range of open-air activities in beautiful countryside. In front of the hotel, beyond the sandy beach, lies a turquoise lagoon that practically blends into the skyline.
The sea air is refreshing and the ripples of the waves gently calming. Beyond, lie thousands of miles of open sea. The traditional style architecture of Tamassa ideally suits the tropical setting, with beautifully landscaped gardens. The buildings seem at one with the environment. The decor is breathtakingly contemporary, with clean lines and bold use of colour. 20 pairs of Standard Rooms, 10 pairs of Standard and Deluxe rooms, 8 pairs of Superior and 2 pairs of Deluxe rooms.

A sliding, wooden door opens up to reveal a spacious bathroom, bathed in natural light. As well as a corner bath, there is a separate shower cubicle edged in sintered-glass tiling, 2 washbowls on stands and lots of wardrobe space. The solid wood, used for all the doors and many of the fittings, gives a warm, rich feel to both rooms.
Superior Rooms - 46m2. The decor is uncluttered, with clean, contemporary lines offset here by touches of red orange. An image of a huge, orange orchid stands above the wooden headboard and the touches of red orange in the curtains and the uniquely designed bedcover are invigorating.

Deluxe Rooms - 49m2. The orchid feature again predominates above the headboard of the queen size bed of (2m by 1.80m), but this time shades of fuchsia are featured throughout to dramatic effect. In the bathroom, the two bowl-shaped white porcelain basins sit on golden taupe marble and the sintered-glass Bizzassa tiling in the shower comes from Italy, brighten by the light coming from the three windows. The large bath has marble surrounds and is set in its own corner.
There is a sense of spaciousness, created by the clever interior design, so that even from the shower, there are views beyond the bedroom and the terrace to the sea or garden. Kiatt, a wood from North Africa, is used throughout all the rooms. The clean, contemporary lines of the basic decor, offset here by the warmth of natural wood and the touches of fuchsia colour, are simply stunning.
Spa (1550m2) Gentle shades of green and khaki blend harmoniously with the wood and the surrounding greenery. The spa has 8 treatment rooms (6 double), a 12m long pool, a hot tub, a sauna, a hammam, two changing rooms, a hairdressing parlor and a beauty salon which provide beauty care and massage.
