Inspired by turn-of-the-century plantation houses, The Residence Mauritius is offers refined details and is a tribute to the deliciously nostalgic elegance of a sophisticated lifestyle. Reliving the magnificence and splendour of yesteryears palace, a butler is assigned to each room and suite. He will unpack and pack your luggage, run a bath a take care of your laundry and ironing service (2 items ironed per person upon arrival free of charge).
The decoration of the 135 oversized rooms and 28 suites is an inspired blend of sobriety and elegance. The sun's dance on the shutters sifts into the interior to create a melody of light and dark, its mottled shadows wavering over a muted colour-scheme of white and delicate shades of beige, picking out harmonies of honey coloured woods and wrought iron, highlighting nuances in the sandy tiles. In the bathrooms marble and wood are elegantly combined. The final touch to perfect the refined atmosphere in the rooms during the evening is the few drops of Ylang Ylang that are delicately placed on ceramic rings warmed by the bedside lamps.
