Nestled on secluded Baie aux Tortues Island off the idyllic north-west coast of Mauritius, Angsana Balaclava is a haven for romantics, with each sunset carrying with it the scent of frangipani as you wander the resort’s pathways to your spacious room. Angsana’s thatched roofs, rich with bougainvillaea over rattan walls, and cool stone floors are designed to reflect all that is matchlessly Mauritian.

Luxuriate at Angsana’s award-winning spa and then sail to deserted Gabriel Island and sun bathe or snorkel in the serene waters while working up an appetite for an on-board barbeque. Explore Port Louis or nearby Grand Baie with their fashionable shops and colourful markets, and then allow the world to slip away as you sink into the seclusion of your 5-star oasis, its pristine sands and gentle breezes alluring you effortlessly into one affaire de cur.

Garden Lagoona Suite

Located in a pristine environment, with the floor-to-ceiling windows of the Garden Suites providing a wealth of natural light with views across the water to the grounds beyond, you will find yourself hard-pressed to imagine ever leaving this romantic all-suite hideaway. The clean lines of Angsana Balaclava’s rattan screens and teak furniture proffer a sense of calm that pervades the entire resort. Return each evening from the beach to the Impressionist expanse of a vivid Mauritian sunset and relax on your verandah. This is barefoot paradise with all the mod cons: individually-regulated air conditioning, Wi-Fi, Nespresso machine and flat-screen TV.

Beachfront Pool Suite

With unrivalled access to the white-sand beach and revitalising promise of an early-morning plunge into the crystal waters of the vast Indian Ocean, indulge yourself with a Beachfront Suite, a luxurious destination with and infinity pool, Jacuzzi and unspoilt views of that rose-and-scarlet sunset from the thermal waters of your Asian stone bath.


Angsana Balaclava’s striking fusion of Western, Oriental and African motifs perfectly complements its award-winning spa. Calm your mind and muse on your surrounds while indulging in a menu of time-tested treatments, from relaxation and weight management to Ayurvedic Tri Dosha top-to-toe renewal.

Leap into your day with a plunge into the waters of the infinity-edge lap pool followed by a quick work-out at the fitness centre, and then abandon yourself to the sea: windsurfing, water skiing or deep-sea fishing. Surface for lunch at the Passion Grill, just a few steps away from Baie aux Tortues beach. Boasting an open-grill kitchen and a swim-up bar, float with your drink while chatting to the chef as he prepares to your liking the speciality seafood. Then curl up sleepily on a rattan lounger and seek refuge from the sunshine with a holiday read. Finally, spoil yourself with a manicure at Angsana Balaclava’s beauty salon – by now, the shadows are lengthening and it is time to consider dinner.


Wander across to the Sylea Bar, which is ideally located next to the alfresco terrace of Angsana Balaclava’s Oryza restaurant, and ask for the cocktail menu: Sylea is the perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink.

Candlelit Oryza, with its volcanic lava walls and rich teak highlights, has an open-sided terrace that is the perfect spot to enjoy its signature Mauritian-Asian fusion fare. Or you may have a sudden yen for the gourmet French, Indian and Creole dishes that will seduce you the moment you sink into this deep-red, delectable, spiced-orange world. But of course there is romantic – and then there is romantic, with Angsana Balaclava offering an in-villa service should you wish to dine in the privacy of your suite or picture-perfect ‘destination dining’. Consider for a moment the tranquil promise of a moonlit, white-sand beach as the sun sinks gently below the horizon… dine à deux under the stars, anywhere on the resort, secure in the attentive service of your steward – an exceptional and intimate dining experience that blends the magic and regal splendour of Mauritius with the delectable creations of Angsana’s chefs.
