Deep Into Maurititus
Our local experiences
Catamaran rides in the crystal-clear lagoon, introduction to the islands' cuisine, local rum tasting, sunset with the sound of the ravanne or meeting the artisans...Veranda Resorts invites you to discover the inner beauty of the "rainbow nation" through three pillars; culture, flavours and the ocean.
Let yourself be carried away by the rhythm of the Séga Tipik. A band sets the tone, while the warmth of the campfire invites you to relax and admire the grace of the dancers. This evening is a unique sensory and human experience that you will not soon forget.
It is through the sometimes unexpected encounters that we feel inspired, and share our heritage. It is because we believe in these encounters of a lifetime that we share with our clients the passion and know-how of local craftsmen. These Mauritian talents shape our culture, and we wish to showcase them in our boutique hotels. Their creations will also provide you with great ideas for souvenirs to take home.
Our island is full of musical talents that Veranda Resorts wishes to highlight in our hotels through a unique and authentic musical entertainment! During your stay, you will have the opportunity to attend a typical Sega show, learn to play a traditional Mauritian instrument and discover the rising stars of the local scene. The best bands, musicians and singers of the island perform all year round at Veranda Resorts.
Veranda Resorts invites you to a moment of escape in the middle of your tropical getaway by diving into an unbounded world of imagination or discovery... However, we invite you to devour a range of books on Mauritius, comfortably settled on a pouf or wrapped up in an armchair near our library.
Get acquainted with this beautiful singing language and its colourful expressions! The Creole lessons at Veranda Resorts are above all a convivial moment of cultural sharing that will allow you to learn practical phrases that will help you during your stay.
At the Timomo Kids Club, we invite your children to discover the fascinating legends and tales that have shaped the Mauritian imagination, discovering the island in a unique way: through our "Ti Zistoir" so beautifully narrated... They will also be introduced to the amazing world of Mauritian comics.
Much more than a simple rum bar, this is a unique sensory experience. Comfortably settled at the bar, a variety of local rum and a passionate mixologist will help you to create your own signature drinks. From sweet tropical and fruity flavours to bold and spicy, your imagination will take the lead.
The fragrant wisps of spices browning in the "karai". Discover the spicy, the crunchy and the unknown...and don't hesitate to talk to our Chef behind the stove. He will surely have some tales to share about the dishes he creates for you, and even share some recipes to recreate at home. "Nou Snack" is a daily explosion of flavours, colours and tastes, a unique culinary experience not to be missed during your holidays.
Veranda Resorts propose à ses clients une découverte gustative variée à travers des recettes locales parfois salées, parfois sucrées, souvent épicées.. Que les clients devront réaliser individuellement avec les conseils avisés de notre Chef. Une fois la recette finalisée, place à la dégustation.
More than a drink, tea is a convivial ritual that can be found in every Mauritian home. At tea time, in our Veranda Resorts hotels, we invite you to share this comforting tradition from our childhood, and to share it, in turn, with your loved ones. The sweet and smoky fragrance of the black tea straw infused in water with spices is enjoyed hot and accompanied by delicious fried foods and other Mauritian delicacies, sometimes sweet, sometimes salty or even spicy and hot. Flavours
