I travelled to Mauritius for business in both Feb and March 2020, staying at Villa Anakao for 5 nights and 3 nights respectively. This is an excellent option if you are looking for a quiet, laid back retreat away from the flashy resorts and built-up areas such as Port Louis. As mentioned in previous reviews, staff are really friendly and go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable one. The food is excellent, home-cooked Mauritian dishes each night served outside in a covered eating area by the pool. Breakfast is also good, with eggs cooked to order and fresh fruit. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and have everything you need for a pleasant stay. As a business traveller I was away for most of the day but it was great to come back in the evening, sit on the verandah with a couple of beers and enjoy a traditional Mauritian dinner each night. For those on holiday, the pool area is simple but clean and well-maintained, and there is a beach a couple of minutes’ walk away. Just to note, I would highly recommend hiring a car if staying here - there aren’t really any shops or restaurants within walking distance and although public buses are frequent, you will have a lot more freedom with a car. Driving in Mauritius is easy, hiring a car is inexpensive and there is secure parking on the premises.

If you plan on visiting Mauritius and wish to stay at an expensive luxury resort at one of the lovely beaches, then fair enough. If you are not, then make sure you stay here. Solene, Patrica and the staff at Villa Anakao work as a team to make your visit just a little bit special. The location near Port Louis is ideal for day trips to other parts of the island. The room I stayed in, orange, was upstairs and huge with a massive terrace, really good, as was the view over the ocean, only 40m away! No beach thou. The food they serve is consistently good. Omelette and bacon for breakfast plus fruit and the trimmings, excellent. Their evening dinner is also very good and reasonably priced. The place is very clean and the house staff do a great job. If you happen to be visiting when their guest singer is entertaining their diners, you are in for a real treat. Three hours of listening to a magical voice, I would have paid good money just to hear him, so make sure you tip him well, you will not be disappointed. I have travelled the world and stayed in a lot of places, this place I highly recommend.

We recently stayed 2 nights at this villa in the yellow room. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was basic but clean. There are plenty of lovely outdoor spaces with a beautiful pool and great views for taking in the sunrise. Breakfast was simple but good- served outside in the dining area. You will need to either rent a car or take a taxi as there’s not much walking distance- however Port Louis is just 20min or so away traffic dependant. I would also highly recommend Kalum the villas recommended taxi- we had a delightful time with him!
