Designed to welcome guests with the warm embrace of a long-awaited homecoming, the modern hacienda is inspired by Pueblos Mágicos - Mexican towns known for their enchanting qualities – in bringing together local craftsmanship, art, music and food.  The Resort offers 96 expansive guest rooms, casitas, suites, and villas plus 61 residences, villas, and estates ranging from 79 square metres (847 square feet) to 590 square metres (6374 square feet) – all with sparkling views of the Sea of Cortez, where whales visit annually November to April.

All accommodations feature retractable glass doors that bring the outdoors in, as well as private terraces. Many suites also include private plunge pools and outdoor showers.

Situated along one of the island’s largest natural lagoons on the east coast, Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita features stunning scenery, fringed by azure blue waters and a natural coral reef. The stand-alone accommodation options - ranging from one-bedroom villas to multi-bedroom Private Retreats – along with a diverse range of dining and resort experiences make idyllic island vacations truly memorable.

Five Years, Five Stars

Recognising not just the Resort setting, but also the quintessential Four Seasons service, Forbes Travel Guide 2024 has once again awarded the Resort with Five Stars. The only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, spas and ocean cruises, Forbes Travel Guide announced its Star Awards 2024, revealing that the Resort has been given Five Stars once again (the highest category). “The watermark that underlines any Four Seasons experience is our unrivalled attention to detail and an excellence in service and experiences,” says Martin Dell, General Manager. “We are incredibly proud and honoured to have retained the Forbes Travel Guide Five Star award: our focus is to make every experience personal and fulfilling – for our guests as well as our colleagues.”

Limitless Possibilities

Special access to two spectacular golf courses, one designed by Ernie Els and a signature course by Bernhard Langer on the adjacent Ile Aux Cerfs, make this a dream destination for golf enthusiasts. “With dramatic volcanic rock formations juxtaposed against the impossibly green tropical foliage, it can be hard to stay focused on the putting greens,” smiles Armelle Duval, Director of Rooms. Besides golf, the Resort offers a wide range of seaside activities, from kayaking and sailing to snorkelling out into the reef, and even fishing excursions into the deeper blue. The expansive property boasts seven dining options including the latest opening - the premium grill-house concept Upper Cut. “From exquisite pan-Asian flavours at Umi.Zaka to the rustic Italian fare at Acquapazza, our distinct concepts cater to all palates,” adds Duval.

Award Winning Relaxation

Recognized for its continued excellence, the Resort’s overwater Spa has been bestowed with Four Stars for its unique concept, combining local organic ingredients with sophisticated skincare products. “Impactful and innovative are our two mantras at the spa,” explains Joelle Jennepy, Senior Director of Spa. “We pride ourselves on curating experiences such that every individual gets a personalised holistic healing.”
