Heritage Le Telfair Golf and Spa Resort has been created on the site of one of Mauritius' best kept and most jealously guarded secrets, the former sugar estate of Bel Ombre. Set on 15 hectares, the Resort nestles breathtakingly between the dreamy turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and the lush Plaine Champagne hills. The Resort has a residential charm all of its own, capturing the colonial spirit of Mauritius with its plantation architecture, expansive manicured tropical gardens as well as the gentle waters of the Citronniers River. Unequalled in Mauritius, nature is at the heart of this resort from the pristine reef-enclosed lagoon and beach, the adjacent nature reserve of Frederica which extends over 1500 hectares as well as the 18-hole Championship golf course and 9-hole short course.
