Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Mauritius - B8 Laurier

The mountain views are breathtaking and it’s just a short walk to the beach!

B8 Laurier is part of a tranquil complex situated on the west coast of the island in Flic-en-Flac. This touristic area is renowned for its luxurious, shimmering, white sandy beach, which stretches for over five kilometres, its restaurants serving Mauritian delicacies, and for Casela Nature Park, which could be described as a zoo with a safari theme. The apartment is only 300 metres from the beach and, within a one-kilometre radius, you will find all your basic holiday needs: supermarkets, snack bars, licensed bars, restaurants and car rental. Daytime activities include water sports and diving classes.

As you enter through the gate of Le Laurier you will pass through an alleyway of palm trees and bushes in bloom. This alleyway leads to the staircase and to the shared – usually unoccupied – swimming pool. Surrounded by deckchairs, the pool is an ideal spot for relaxing in the shade of the coconut trees. It is worth noting that this swimming pool never gets direct sunlight, which means that you can spend hours around the pool without the risk of sunburn.

Arriving on the third floor, you will certainly enjoy the splendid view of the pool and the garden around the complex. You will also catch a glimpse of the beach, which is just a few minutes away. In the living room, you can relax on the spacious two-seater cosy couch, perhaps doing nothing more than enjoying an evening film on the 32-inch flat-screen TV. The kitchen has a modern look and is well equipped with oven, induction cooktop, microwave and coffee maker. Through the door leading to the terrace, you can’t fail to be awestruck by the magnificent mountain views – like a picturesque painting – a constant reminder of how beautiful and magical this place really is! We’ve arranged an unlimited Internet connection via Wi-Fi so that you can share these exceptional moments with your loved ones.

The bathroom is equipped with a washing machine and an ironing board, under which there is a storage area. There is a clothes line on the small terrace to dry your laundry after the wash.

The mountain views can also be enjoyed through the windows of the bedroom, which is furnished beautifully in modern and tropical style. There is also a digital safe in the wardrobe for secure storage of valuables as required. On the bed you can sink into a thick and comfortable mattress; there is luxurious bedding with synthetic, hypoallergenic pillows. The air conditioning in the bedroom ensures a comfortable temperature for a good night’s sleep.

The terrace with amazing panoramic mountain views is covered with an attractive synthetic lawn giving you the feeling of being in a magical garden. You can relax on one of the deckchairs and just admire the surroundings while being caressed by a gentle breeze. This is surely the ideal place to chill out!

Why Kunal & Reshma Oogorah chose Mauritius

This holiday apartment is our Zen getaway. Whenever we want to get away from the hectic working life, we just get a flight to Mauritius and enjoy the sea breeze, the mountain scenery, and the combination of silence and beauty. It is close to almost everything we need: beach, spa, massage, bar, restaurants, grocery shops – and especially the hawkers of pickled fruit!

Being a small complex of only eight apartments, Le Laurier is very quiet most of the time.

What makes this apartment unique

All inclusive: wifi, electricity, water and housekeeping on Mondays.

A view you will remember forever.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Très belle expérience. L'appartement est vaste, très propre, il contient tout ce que l'on peut attendre. Il possède deux terrasses exposées différemment. Il est très calme et le matin vous êtes réveillés par les oiseaux. Bernard qui s'occupe du gardiennage est vraiment très disponible et prêt à tout pour vous aider.

Les propriétaires nous ont très bien accompagnés par mail s'occupant même de nous trouver un chauffeur de taxi qui nous attendait à l'aéroport (30 euros soit 1000 roupies la course).

La situation est juste ce que l'on attend à 5 minutes à pieds de l'immense plage de Flic en Flac et à 5 minutes du SPAR pour faire les courses.

A Flic en Flac tout le monde parle français (et pas seulement nos anciens qui viennent y passer l'hivers)

De Flic en flac on peut louer une voiture (1000 roupies par jour) et aller se balader vers le Nord ou la Sud

Il est certain que l'on reviendra à Maurice et qu'on choisira de séjourner à Flic en Flac et dans cette location. (Original review on Tripadvisor - http://goo.gl/ZTxqhe )

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à l'île Maurice, cette ile est magnifique. Flic en flac est très bien situé pour visiter le sud ouest de l'île et la réserve naturelle de River Black. L'appartement est dans flic en flac, nous avons donc pu profiter de la vie mauricienne (contrairement aux hôtels de Wolmar au sud avec leurs plages réservées aux touristes). L'appartement était tout à fait conforme à la description. Un grand merci à Kunal & Reshma pour leur gentillesse et leur disponibilité par mail et téléphone.

Wonderful apartment for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks in this bright and modern apartment and we felt at home from day one. The apartment was very clean and nicely decorated. Especially the kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for cooking. The beach, some nice restaurants and shops are within walking distance. So it's not absolutely necessary to rent a car. But also for trips to the island is Flic en Flac is a good location.

Prior to our arrival we received a lot of useful information from the friendly owners. It was easy to get in touch with them in case of problems and we were helped immediately.

We would highly recommend this property and we hope that we can come back one day.

Great apartment if you want home from home

  • 5 of 5

Having lived in UK for 45 years and born in Mauritius where I visit every year, I decided to have an apartment which will be 5 minutes from the beach, walking distance to shops and restaurants and I could not have chosen any better than this apartment. It was not only secure/ clean/ all equipment's in good working order/ very helpful Prem who is the person responsible for the flat / very happy maid that will do any tasks you ask, terraces on both sides giving you the best view of the town and facing the sea as one is on the 3rd floor/ quiet and a pool that is clean and maintained at a high standard. If you are thinking of having a home from home then think no further than this apartment with the owners Mr/Mrs K Oogarah always at your beckon call either by phone or the internet. The WiFi in the apartment will give you all the access you need for your emails and Skype. I watch all the football games from UK and surprisingly the reception is very good indeed. So if you are looking for a relaxing place in a safe contained apartment which is in a block of 10 with security then look no further. I will book again and I know visitors that came to see the apartment have already booked a year in advance. You will be home from home. You will be coming back again just like I am going to do soon.

Flic En Flac Beach
Car: not necessary

Flic En Flac beach is one of the most beautiful beach on the island. The area is still in development but already features some 4.5 to 5 star rated restaurants and night clubs. With authentic Mauritian, Indian and Chinese cuisine, Flic En Flac offers a great variety of dishes at affordable prices. Of course if you fancy fine dining for a special day, the famous luxury hotels are just around the corner.

'Black River (or Rivière Noire) is currently the place to stay as a holiday destination in Mauritius. It is the most popular touristic region of the island – not only because of its luxurious, sparkling beaches of white sand and its turquoise water, but also for its tropical scenery and nature reserves. When it comes to weather, Black River is the epitome of summer; it boasts the best holiday weather in Mauritius, making it the ideal place to enjoy your grand summer vacation. You will fall in love with the cuisine – both local and international – offered by the cosy restaurants in the region. Unlike other parts of Mauritius, Black River remains very much alive at night with a great selection of pubs and discotheques.

Mauritius is renowned for being one of the best golf destinations in the world; the Tamarina Golf Club lays claim to having the supreme golf course on the island by way of its 18-hole championship course in Black River. It is worth noting that the club offers courses for beginners. Black River is also very popular for big-game fishing – just a few miles off the coral reef you will discover areas teeming with tropical marine life, including the yellowfin tuna and even ‘the king of game’, namely the blue marlin. Water sports are a must for many visitors to Mauritius and are readily accessible in the region: water-sports specialists offer diving, kite surfing and even snorkelling lessons. Most of the water-sports shops also rent equipment at a reasonable cost, enabling enthusiasts to admire the world’s most breathtaking coral reef and marine life.

Black River is also known for its variety of natural attractions, which include the following:

• Black River Gorges, a nature reserve with trekking and hiking trails;

• Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire, the highest mountain peak in Mauritius, where you can have a perfect hiking experience;

• Casela, a unique zoo, where you can enjoy an endemic dry forest, animals roaming freely (except for the dangerous ones), hiking and zip lines, not to mention having fun in their cute little farm;

• The Chamarel, where you can enjoy the stunning view of the highest waterfall on the island, the seven-coloured earth, and an adventure in the wild in its very own Adventure Park.

From Black River you can also take a boat for a memorable trip to the virgin islands around Mauritius. This area really has everything you could wish for – so don’t miss out on an amazing holiday in Mauritius.

As travellers ourselves, we are accustomed to the needs of tourists and we try our level best to satisfy all our guests. For a trouble-free stay in Mauritius this apartment is the perfect choice. We don't just give you the keys and walk away! We care about your stay and cater for your requirements.'
