Retreat location

The tropical island of Mauritius sets the perfect environment for sun, sea, and its exclusive white sandy beaches. The wellness facilities in Mauritius are located a few minutes’ walk from the famous beach of Trou Aux Biches village. The center provides the most unspoiled, pristine, and traditional natural remedies, blending the perfect natural environment with the authentic forms of yoga and Ayurveda from the Himalayas.

The retreat is very close to local amenities, supermarkets, craft shops, diving and sports centers, local cash points, foreign exchange, taxi stands, and bus terminals. The capital city of Mauritius, Port-Louis, is only 30-minute away by bus from Sannyasa retreat facilities. Bus fare costs less than a Euro to get to Port-Louis. Known for its old architecture and sole harbour of Mauritius, Port-Louis is a great city to stroll around, providing an excellent history of the French and British colonizations.

The Natural History Museum in Port-Louis contains some fascinating artifacts, such as early maps of the island and paintings of Mauritius' original fauna - including, of course, the dodo. The bell and a cache of Spanish coins from the wreck of the St Géran are also on display. The ship's demise in 1744, off the northeast coast of Mauritius, inspired the famous love story Paul et Virginie by Bernardin de St-Pierre.

Food

To complete your retreat, you will be served with daily vegetarian breakfasts and dinners. The local cooks serve essentially Mauritian vegetarian meals, with seasonal fruits and vegetables. Traces of both northern and southern Indian Mauritian cuisine can be found on the menu.

Common preparations are delicious curry, chutney, rougaille (tomato paste that is very popular on the island) and pickles, most of which use local ingredients. The Mauritian versions of those dishes have a local flavor and differ, at times considerably, from the original Indian recipes.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Dinner

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

  • Vegetarian
  • Vegan
  • Naturopathic
  • Lactose Free
  • Whole food
  • Yogic
  • Ayurvedic
If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate it to the organiser when making a reservation

Things to do (optional)

To add excitement to your retreat, there are a lot of activities that you can do during your free time. As the local beaches are surrounded by strong reefs all around, you can go for snorkeling, trekking all day along the long stretch of beaches, or go for a swim in the shallow and warm sea water.

The ocean route is probably the next best thing to do from Trou Aux Biches, cruising from North West of the island along the coastal roads all the way to the east, where you can take a boat trip to the island of Ile Aux Cerfs. The trip is also best done on the scooter, which allows for reaching each and every beach on the road. There are around a dozen of beaches on the ocean route - each quite different from each other, some of the sandy beaches, rocky beaches, Mediterranean blue water, deep blue water, forest beaches, etc.

You can also book boat trips organized in the area to see dolphins and to visit other small tropical islands around Mauritius. For as little as 30 EUR, you can visit three islands off the north coast of Mauritius. These tours include pick up and drop off from the retreat, free drinks, free open lunch buffet, snorkeling accessories, etc.

The retreat is also close to the popular tourist attraction Pamplemousses Botanical Garden. Pamplemousses is the oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere and for a long time, it ranked third among all the gardens that could be admired over the surface of the globe. It is famous for its long pond of giant water lilies and the wide variety of plants and flowers covering an area of almost 37 hectares.

The capital city of Mauritius, Port-Louis is only 30 minutes away by bus from our retreat. Known for its old architecture and harbor of Mauritius, Port-Louis is a great city to stroll around, providing an excellent history of the French and British colonizations. Things to see in the capital city are the central market (Victorian style architecture), Caudan Waterfront - the new city of Port-Louis, China Town, the Natural History of Museum (where you can see an actual stuffed dodo as well as other extinct animals), Fort Adelaide - the Citadel, Champ de Mars racecourse, the old Cathedral Church, etc.

The other main landmarks of Mauritius are mostly in the south of the island, which is covered by the island tours organized by the retreat center. These include Trou Aux Cerfs Volcano, Mare Aux Vacoas lake, Grand Bassin sacred lake of God Shiva, Alexander Falls, Black River Gorges National Park, Chamarel Waterfalls, Chamarel volcanic seven colored earth, Le Morne undersea waterfalls, Gris Gris beach, Casela Adventure park, Flic en Flac beach, etc.
