In addition to room service, guests also have the option to organise a dinner party. This event can be catered by a private chef in your fully equipped kitchen, with service provided by a dedicated waiter, all within the private setting of your suite or villa.

Tea Treatments at the Thémaé Spa

The French brand Thémaé (whose name means Japanese tea ceremony or way of tea) is behind the resort’s tea-themed spa. Ceremonies are held within its outdoor tea lounge. Eight single treatment rooms and one double with its own garden area, set the scene for tea-infused therapies created with long-lasting results in mind. There are interior and exterior showers, changing rooms, steam room, and a manicure and pedicure space.

Ernie Els & Bernhard Langer Golf Courses

Home to two exceptional 18-hole courses, Anahita Golf & Spa Resort is on the bucket list of many golfers. Guests staying here can play on both, with one green fee and 55 practice balls per person, per night. The first of the two courses, Anahita Golf, is a challenging par-72 championship course beside the main resort. Built to USGA standards, it has large fairways and five sets of tees. Six of the holes lie beside the ocean and the final shot is something very special indeed. The course hosted the Mauritian Open for the first time in November 2018. Equally spectacular are the 18 holes on Ile aux Cerfs par-72 championship golf course, accessed via a short complimentary ferry crossing, with its own 300-metre beach, seafood grill restaurant and bar for after the game.
