Mauritius is becoming more and more popular as a vacation destination! And for good reason: The island has not only numerous adventures and waterfalls to offer but also dream beaches and great resorts. The Sugar Beach Mauritius is one of them and in this hotel review you will discover if the resort is the right choice for you.

My Review of the Sugar Beach Mauritius

Location & Transfer

Here the name says it all! The Sugar Beach Mauritius is indeed located on a beach that looks like white powdered sugar. It is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island: The Flic en Flac beach with a view of the characteristic Le Morne Brabant rock in the background. Together with the shallow blue lagoon and the palm trees with their leaves blowing in the wind, it creates one of the most beautiful settings on the entire island.

The hotel is located in the west of the island, about 55 minutes by car from the airport.

Although a transfer to Sugar Beach Mauritius is offered, I highly recommend booking a rental car for your time in Mauritius and thus reach the resort yourself. Mauritius has so much to offer: from waterfalls to spectacular hikes to landscapes which I have not seen anywhere else. → Find the most beautiful highlights on Mauritius, which you should not miss, here!

The concept of Sugar Beach Mauritius

Sugar Beach Mauritius is a relaxing resort for both couples and families. The resort has a variety of activities and retreats to suit all travelers. For example, an Adults Only Quiet Pool or a Kids Club.

The design of the resort is based on the peak of sugar production in the 19th century on Mauritius. The buildings are reminiscent of the old sugar refineries and the interior of the lobby is also based on this period.

It is also exciting to note that the Sugar Beach is located next to its sister hotel, La Pirogue, and the two resorts are connected. This means that guests can move freely between the two facilities and enjoy all the amenities, such as pools and restaurants, of both hotels.

The rooms at the Sugar Beach Mauritius

We slept in a Deluxe Sea View Room with a view of the beach.

The interior had an open bathroom with a separate toilet and a rain shower with a window into the bedroom. A room divider and a blind on the shower, however, can provide more privacy. Shampoo and Co. are offered in refillable dispensers, which I find very important to avoid unnecessary waste. In the bedroom, in addition to the comfortable double bed, there is also a desk, minibar as well as armchairs with a view to the outside.

A tea maker and a Nespresso capsule machine are available in the room, but only a total of four coffee capsules are included per stay. At check in, snacks were waiting for us in the room, as well as a small bottle of rum from Mauritius.

Water is provided daily. Unfortunately, these are not refillable glass bottles, but regular water bottles for single use. However, there is a water dispenser in the lounge of the building during the day.

Our room was on the second floor, which meant we had a balcony instead of a terrace. The only downside to this is that you have the protruding roof of the terraces on the ground floor directly below you, which unfortunately isn’t very pretty when viewed from above and thus somewhat disturbs the paradisiacal view. On the second and highest floor, this should be less noticeable and the roofs should disappear from view. Especially for photos this is nicer!

The interior of the rooms is very cozy and at the same time modern with many warm wood elements, for the perfect island feeling to relax.

The rooms at the Sugar Beach Mauritius are not all in the same building, but there are several small ones on the complex. Thus, the resort seems very cozy and idyllic. I found it great that there was a studio in our building, as a small lounge, which gave me the feeling of traveling back to the 19th century. With the open windows, high ceilings, numerous plants and chirping birds, this was a dream place for me to relax. During the day, it is even possible to create your own perfume here, which I found very exciting.

Pool & Beach

As already mentioned, the Sugar Beach Mauritius is located on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The white sandy beach runs slowly into the shallow lagoon, which makes it a fantastic and safe place to swim, even for children. On the beach there are enough sunbeds and umbrellas, so there is always a place to be found, but without appearing overloaded, as there are also plenty of sunbeds at the two pools in the resort.

The main pool is located directly on the beach and is very nicely designed. Especially remarkable is the huge banyan tree, which was integrated into the pool landscape.

Adults who want to enjoy the peace and tranquility will feel most comfortable at the Quiet Pool. By the way, this is also an ideal place to watch the sun disappear behind the horizon in the evening. The sunset colors both the sky and the water in beautiful hues.

Wellness & Sport

Those who want to do sports during their vacation will also find the right place at Sugar Beach. For example, there are tennis courts, a shuttle to the golf course or a gym. Water sports in the lagoon or beach volleyball are also provided.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to visit the Cinq Mondes Spa, but we did visit the unique Beauty Bubble on the beach! From late afternoon, beauty treatments can be booked here to enjoy them in a very special ambience! Especially at sunset it is an unforgettable experience!

Restaurants & Breakfast

Mon Plaisir

The main restaurant at Sugar Beach Mauritius is the Mon Plaisir buffet restaurant. Normally I’m not a big fan of buffets for dinner, but the quality and selection of the food at Sugar Beach changed my mind. There is a daily changing theme for dinner with various live cooking stations. One of these is a traditional Mauritian night, which I particularly enjoyed.

Breakfast is also served in the main restaurant and is also of a very high quality with a Juice Station and many other highlights. Definitely a great way to start the day.

Buddha Bar Beach

The well-known bar and restaurant chain “Buddha Bar Beach” also has an offshoot in Mauritius! And directly on the beach of Sugar Beach Mauritius with a view of the sunset, which makes it my favorite restaurant in the resort! A modern Asian menu is offered for both lunch and dinner, and the cocktail selection alone is worth a visit! Especially perfect for a sundowner aperitif under palm trees.


The beach lounge and restaurant Citronellas has an Italian menu with mainly pizza and pasta, which unfortunately did not convince us very much. But maybe we just didn’t order the right dishes. However, the setting – also directly on the beach – is very cozy. But maybe we just didn’t order the right dishes.

Résumé of my Sugar Beach Mauritius Hotel Review:

Relaxation on the beach in paradisiacal flair. Despite its size, the Sugar Beach Resort Mauritius is a cozy hotel in which there are many dreamlike spots and views to be found. A highlight is undoubtedly the Beauty Bubble, the Buddha Bar Beach, the gorgeous beach and the connection to the sister hotel La Pirogue, to which all guests also have access. The Sugar Beach is an ideal base for exploring Mauritius or a great resort to simply relax for both couples and families.
