The sea urchin scrambled eggs are fabulous, served in a sea urchin shell.
Flanked on opposite sides by the verdant Bambou mountains and a shimmering, sapphire-blue lagoon (almost the entire island is ringed by coral reefs), the Four Seasons Resort, Mauritius at Anahita surpasses all expectations.
Its 136 villas and residence villas - generous in size and designed to interact with the outdoors - feature deep soaking tubs, private terraces rich in foliage, and all the high-tech extras associated with the Four Seasons brand. A fully realized spa, complete with saunas, steam rooms, and Vichy showers sits on a dense mangrove islet.
A number of noteworthy attractions await your discovery nearby. Il aux Aigrettes, 30 minutes away by boat, is home to some of the world's most endangered species, including the pink pigeon and the Aldabran giant tortoise. Also worth a trip is The Sugar Adventure, an interactive tour through a former sugar mill and its surrounding cane fields.
