Preskil Island Resort
Preskil Island Resort has an excellent location on a spacious private islet encircled by white sand, just 5 minutes’ drive from the historic centre of Mahébourg and only 15 minutes from the airport. With 214 rooms the resort is reasonably large, but the public areas and beach are sufficiently spacious to create a tranquil atmosphere that you would expect in a smaller establishment. There is excellent swimming and snorkelling in the clear and calm water of the protected lagoon that laps the powdery sand. The resort was completely refurbished in 2019, and re-designed in a contemporary Creole style, with an open-plan lobby looking out to the turquoise waters, thatched palm roofs, natural colour schemes and driftwood effect structures. There are three distinctive styles of restaurant to choose from serving international specialities prepared on live cooking stations, Mediterranean family favourites and a beachfront seafood restaurant. Drinks are served in style at the expansive Medley Bar, which features mellow live music and a firepit under the stars. Other facilities include the Banyan Spa, a huge free-form infinity pool and well-equipped kids club. There are many day trips available from the resort which include trips to the offshore islands of Ile Aux Aigrettes and Ile aux Cerfs on the hotel’s own catamaran, e-bike tours and snorkelling in the Blue Bay Marine Park. For those who like to experience local life there is a good selection of bars and restaurants to explore in nearby Mahébourg, along with one of the best markets on the island.
