So let me elaborate… The service at Tamassa is a cut above 99% of 5 star resorts – here the staff are happy, genuinely happy! They are smiling, they are friendly and here they not just go out of their way, they WANT to go out of their way to make your holiday memorable and one that will want you going back year after year after year! Some special mentions are Rafiek around the beach , Kamlesh at the Playa, Ritish in the front office, Raj at the Playa restaurant, Suniel at ile des deux Cocos and all the lovely ladies at kids club – all so wonderful!

Tamassa will become your holiday home, you will feel so comfortable & happy that you will not want your holiday to end!

It’s the attention to detail that Tamassa gets right – knowing your name, knowing what you like to drink – turning a towel into an elephant and placing it on your bed on turndown, management are always around and forever able to be seen at all hours, chatting to guests and staff. Here they just have it right!lux-tamassa-3

Food – GLORIOUS!! -you have a number of really amazing options that will give you a hard time deciding between – breakfast – either to your room or at the buffet where there is an abundance on offer, it may you leave you dreading to step out in that bikini J

Lunch – my favourite was the food truck – Babita was sensational in the “driving seat” and made the most amazing burgers and I must say my favourite – the cabbage fritters! You could also try the buffet option at the bar, however if you prefer a more ale carte feel, then the playa restaurant with its open kitchen will give you loads and loads of choices. Dinner is either at the ever changing theme buffet Kitchen or again you could opt for one of the ale carte choices at the playa restaurant.


Wanting something different – opt for a picnic lunch or a dinner on the beach or why not try the Lobster – either can be easily arranged and again the staff are just soo accommodating.

lux-tamassa-5Activities – There is plenty to do at Tamassa – the boat house has a range of activities that you can sign up for – from kayaking, water-skiing, pedal boats, bicycles, deep-sea diving, kite surfing, gymnasium, big game fishing, bocci balls,  Tennis, perhaps arrange a game of golf at the neighbouring resort – (additional expense), afternoon volleyball, there’s a games rooms with table tennis and pool table and of course – 3 very large swimming pools , so I can guarantee that you will never feel over crowded.

The Spa is a Must – a definite must – we had the most amazing treatments and my mother who is a frequent spa goer admitted to having the best massage she has ever, ever experienced anywhere! And that is a huge compliment!

lux-tamassa-6The kids club – PLAY – I had to limit the time that my 6 year old spent at PLAY  or we would not have seen her – she had a ball – the ladies were incredible – their programme was jam-packed with so many different , fun and exciting activities on offer – why would she want to hang with us J They have also included a kids wellness program complete with yoga, beauty treatments and herbal adventures.

lux-tamassa-7The Rooms were bright and fresh , cleaned twice daily with flip flops as fun change from the usual boring slippers – nice one Tamassa! Another great Touch that is on offer is you are able to purchase a laundry package for next to nothing – ie – staying 4 nights and pay MRU1500 per room ,which is a brilliant offer!

An excursion to Ile Des deux Cocos is an Absolute MUST! – We had the best day ever – the most glorious food  – What a Feast!!, the most amazing snorkelling – crystal clear waters – it’s a hidden Gem , and we were all so grateful we were able to experience – old and young.lux-tamassa-2

We were overwhelmed with the way we were treated and with what we experienced!  We experienced everything and more that a person expects in a holiday and I can only Thank Nitesh, Benoit, Nishal, Ravi and the rest of Nitesh’s team for helping us celebrate life during our stay at Tamassa – we will be back and we will recommend Tamassa to all who want to visit Mauritius!
