This magical all-inclusive, adults-only hotel provides guests with whatever they could need for the ultimate tropical hideaway; from exciting signature experiences, a relaxing Tropical Spa and excellent dining outlets to vibey bars, a jam-packed daily activity programme and an on-site nightclub.
Perfect for loved-up couples or groups of friends (the hotel is open to guests who are 16 years and older) looking to escape the ordinary, Ambre provides the perfect home away from home and a stress-free holiday by design, thanks to its all-inclusive package, you don’t need to worry about a thing. In fact, the hardest decision you will have to make is which of the amazing dining outlets to try at mealtimes and which of the daily activities to partake in.
Interested to know what a day at Ambre could look like for you in the near future? Read on!
The serene tropical oasis of Ambre boasts an excellent location along the untamed east coast of Mauritius so a holiday spent here would be amiss without witnessing at least one of the island’s famous sunrises. At Ambre, there are a number of novel ways to enjoy the sunrise with the signature Sunrise Timeless Memories offerings, but the Sunrise Yoga, which takes place on the beach facing the sea, is a firm favourite. Kick-start your day in a mindful and meaningful way with the Sunrise Yoga class, where you will be led through a routine as you embrace the magic of dawn and the changing colours of the sky.
Post-yoga session, you can enjoy a detox juice and freshen up in your room before heading to Ambre’s main restaurant, Indigo. Here, you will be treated to an abundant buffet offering everything from fresh fruit, yoghurt and gluten-free treats to a vast pastry selection, live cooking stations serving eggs (done how you like them) and more.
After breakfast, before it gets too hot, we highly recommend heading to the beach for some glorious vitamin D. Make the most of the wonderful beach butler service or treat yourself to a real VIP Sun Beach experience by opting for a beach cocoon or sunbed package. Take advantage of the glorious weather by swimming, snorkeling, or trying one of the complimentary water sports (pedalo boat, windsurfing, SUP, to name a few) or glass-bottom boat trips available.
After a fantastic morning in the sun, as it starts getting hotter (and you start getting hungrier) it might be time to make your way to one of the restaurants for a delicious lunch. If you don’t feel like venturing too far from the beach, then treat yourself to a lunch at La Plage (which will come with a small supplement). The menu at La Plage is filled with beautiful fresh seafood options and perfect seaside fare, which can be enjoyed to the sound and sight of the sparkling water lapping the shore.
After you’ve enjoyed a languid lunch, perhaps you would like to partake in one of the daily programme activities, like a volleyball tournament, or a spot of mini-golf.
The mini golf course is a new addition to the Ambre property and is located close to the resort’s main bar, Coral Bar. While Ambre’s golfing guests can enjoy privileged access to some of the best golf courses on the island, the hotel wanted to ensure that golfers could have a little golf-related fun at the resort itself, so the Golf Management of Ile aux Cerfs came together to design the perfect mini-golf course.
The course offers guests (two guests can play at a time) a short, fun game, with two holes to play, which takes around 15 minutes.
After your quick mini golf stint, why not indulge in a massage in one of the spa’s outdoor gazebos (where you will be lulled to tranquility by the sound of the ocean)? Try the signature Ayurvedic warm candle massage (with the scent of your choice) and make use of the excellent spa facilities, which include a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.
It might be time to head back to your room to freshen up for dinner, but be sure not to miss sunset. While Ambre is known for its sunrises (due to the location), it’s still lovely to witness the changing colours of the afternoon sky, favourite tipple in hand. We recommend trying out the new watering hole, Ti-Bar, where you can enjoy the gorgeous, balmy afternoon/evening in a relaxed beachside setting.
Post-sundowner, it might be time to head to dinner. If you feel like something special and romantic, then head to La Plage (if you didn’t enjoy lunch here), if it’s the Mauritian evening at Indigo, that is a must-try, but if you are simply looking for something equal parts sublime and comforting, then head to La Dolce Vita for some sumptuous Italian fare accompanied by some delicious imported wines.
After your meal, you can enjoy the resort’s evening entertainment (which is usually live music played by a local band) at Coral Bar, partake in the evening Karaoke at H&H Lounge (if it’s the right night) and later, head to Ambre’s nightclub, Shakers, to dance the night away.
Alternatively, if it’s a special occasion, you can pre-arrange a romantic room set up and spend the evening with your loved one, or simply get an early night and prepare for another fun-filled and memorable day in the sun at Ambre.
Does this sound like a perfect day in paradise? It could be your reality! Just book your next tropical holiday at this magnificent resort for a holiday you will never forget.
