The world-renowned Westin brand has opened its first hotel on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius. The Westin Turtle Bay Resort and Spa, managed by Starwood Hotels, is set in a pristine beachfront location amid tropical gardens in the historic Turtle Bay of Balaclava on the North West coast of the island.

Michael Wale, Starwood Hotel's regional president, explained:

"The resort is an ideal leisure destination. Guests will experience a memorable stay whether they are looking to relax on a sandy beach, feel revived in the serene Heavenly Spa, or go scuba diving in the beautiful natural marine park of Turtle Bay."

The new resort is located only 15km from Mauritius' main tourism hub of Grand Baie, which is known for its shopping, restaurants, bars and nightlife, and 15km from Port-Louis, the island's capital. It has 190 luxury guest rooms, including 38 suites, designed to reflect the natural beauty of the island's unique scenery and containing the latest in-room technology. Renowned Westin features such as a plush Heavenly bed, Heavenly bath with rainforest shower and exclusive White Tea Aloe bath products plus a Heavenly robe are all included in each room.

There are a variety of eateries and bars scattered about the resort including all-day dining at Seasonal Tastes restaurant and Mystique beach club, which feature the Westin brand's signature Superfoods menu offering nutrient-rich and flavoursome dishes. The hotel also boasts three a-la-carte dining options - Indian restaurant Kangan, serving authentic Indian cuisine, Fusion, mixing local cuisine with international flavours, and the relaxed Beach Grill, positioned right on the ocean's edge serving a variety of fresh seafood and barbecued meat.

Guests at the new hotel can relax in the Heavenly Spa by Westin, offering an array of indulgent treatments.
