ST REGIS HOTEL IN MAURITIUS IS THE BEST ON THE ISLAND! AT A STARTING RATE OF AT LEAST RM 1,600 TO RM 2,000 PER ROOM PER NIGHT IT CERTAINLY LIVES UP TO ITS WELL DESERVED REPUTATION AS A 5-STAR PLUS HOTEL SINCE 5 STARS ARE THE HIGHEST RANKING GRADE THOUGH SOME INSIST ST REGIS IS A 6-STAR HOTEL AND BURJ AL-ARAB IS 7-STAR IN WHICH CASE THE KEE HUA CHEE HOTEL IS 100-STAR AS IT ACCOMMODATES ONLY 1 GUEST PER NIGHT WHO IS BLESSED ENOUGH TO SLEEP ON THE SAME BED AS KEE HUA CHEE.

Your home in Mauritius!

St Regis Mauritius used to be Berjaya Hotel owned by Tan Sri Vincent Tan of Berjaya Group but after a successful run, I was told he sold it for RM 120 million. The hotel was then dismantled down to its foundations and a brand new one built from scratch so there is hardly any sign it used to be Berjaya hotel.

Bed with a fabulous view!


The architecture is classical colonial and certainly harks to the days when the British were the world's most powerful, strongest and richest nation. The all-white villas are reminiscent of the finest beach hotels found anywhere on this planet and the gardens are amazingly beautiful and verdant. 


Service is impeccable and check-in was a breeze. I was escorted to my room in a double-storey villa on the ground floor which is pricier than the room upstairs since my room opens straight into the garden and the beach which is 15 seconds walk away!


However I was surprised my room attendant did not offer to carry my hand luggage. I know I look strong and tough like Rambo and Hercules combined but I would have thought it was common courtesy for him to ask if he could carry my bag.


But he made up for it by showing me my luxurious room and how everything worked and when I asked why there were no tea bags he rushed out to bring me some. There was no kettle so he ran out again to bring one in and then took my photos expertly.


My room was to die for as the doors opened directly onto the garden and then on the Indian Ocean. From the luxury of my bed I could see the coconut trees and a hint of beach.


I can hardly wait for St Regis Kuala Lumpur to open!

You can now be quick on booking your hotels and other accommodation, anywhere in the world. Analyze the price options, the room type and also get to view the hotel rooms if it's available online, before booking one for yourself. This is what I have learned after performing a lot of research online. Even though, there are numerous sites, where you can compare the hotel sites, but I found http://bookatel.com/ simple awesome and flexible. You can count on this site too. Thanks!!!
