Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa launches in Mauritius

by Helen Andrews | 16 Dec 2014

Starwood’s Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa has opened in the historic Turtle Bay of Balaclava on the north west coast of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean.

Located 15km (9m) from the island’s leisure hub Grand Baie and 15km (9m) from the capital of Port-Louis, the 190-key resort is spread across 10 hectares (25 acres) of land.

The resort’s 1,500sq m (16,146sq ft) Heavenly Spa features 10 treatment rooms, a sauna and steamroom. Skincare products at the spa are supplied by Aromatherapy Associates and treatments incorporate Himalayan salt and marine algae. Jing Tea provides beverages and the Westin brand’s signature SuperFoodsRX offers a healthy range of food for spa guests.

Richard Farnell of interior design and landscape architecture firm Burega Farnell worked on the property, which is bordered by a reef that runs the length of the hotel.

Other leisure facilities at the resort include two swimming pools, tennis courts, a fitness studio, sailing, kayaking, waterskiing and day adventure cruises. The nearby Marine National Park offers visitors the chance to snorkel and scuba-dive to discover the location’s rich marine life.
