WE HAVE JUST BEEN TO MAURITIUS, part 13, Belle Mare Plage
GOLF, ENDLESS BEACH & LOTS TO DO...
For the whole family. Constance Belle Mare Plage has a wonderful setting on a long dazzling white beach. The fringing lagoon within the sheltering coral reef is a heady turquoise and the depth seemed perfect for bathing. On our recent visit to Mauritius we saw 20 hotels, and this lagoon seemed the most popular for actual swimming.
Belle Mare Plage is quite a big resort (235 rooms and 20 villas), so there is a sense of buzz and action. Here you have a choice of 4 pools with sunloungers, 7 restaurants, shopping arcade, plenty of watersports of course and TWO 18-hole golf courses. Green fees included.
A shuttle goes every hour to and from luxurious sister hotel Constance Le Prince Maurice via the golf courses.
For those who want to get away to delicious privacy we suggest the villas at Belle Mare Plage. On a recent hotel inspection we were shown an attractive two-bedroom villa with pool, elegant bedrooms, roomy lounge with plenty of sofa space, and a small kitchenette. That little item is for the butler that comes with the villa.

We also saw a deluxe suite with lounge and bedroom. Bedroom shown below. This suite can be connected to a prestige room.
After that we ate a lunch at the beach restaurant, with a view of the brilliant turquoise lagoon and white beach. Perfect food and paradise feeling in the balmy breeze...
Belle Mare Plage has of course a spa offering massage and body and beauty treatments, fitness centre with many activities and, most important for a family resort – a kid’s club with pool.
