Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita Retains the Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Rating for the Fifth Year in a Row

Situated along one of the island’s largest natural lagoons on the east coast, Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita features stunning scenery, fringed by azure blue waters and a natural coral reef. The stand-alone accommodation options - ranging from one-bedroom villas to multi-bedroom Private Retreats – along with a diverse range of dining and resort experiences make idyllic island vacations truly memorable.

Five Years, Five Stars

Recognising not just the Resort setting, but also the quintessential Four Seasons service, Forbes Travel Guide 2024 has once again awarded the Resort with Five Stars. The only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, spas and ocean cruises, Forbes Travel Guide announced its Star Awards 2024, revealing that the Resort has been given Five Stars once again (the highest category). “The watermark that underlines any Four Seasons experience is our unrivalled attention to detail and an excellence in service and experiences,” says Martin Dell, General Manager. “We are incredibly proud and honoured to have retained the Forbes Travel Guide Five Star award: our focus is to make every experience personal and fulfilling – for our guests as well as our colleagues.”

Limitless Possibilities

Special access to two spectacular golf courses, one designed by Ernie Els and a signature course by Bernhard Langer on the adjacent Ile Aux Cerfs, make this a dream destination for golf enthusiasts. “With dramatic volcanic rock formations juxtaposed against the impossibly green tropical foliage, it can be hard to stay focused on the putting greens,” smiles Armelle Duval, Director of Rooms. Besides golf, the Resort offers a wide range of seaside activities, from kayaking and sailing to snorkelling out into the reef, and even fishing excursions into the deeper blue. The expansive property boasts seven dining options including the latest opening - the premium grill-house concept Upper Cut. “From exquisite pan-Asian flavours at Umi.Zaka to the rustic Italian fare at Acquapazza, our distinct concepts cater to all palates,” adds Duval.

Award Winning Relaxation

Recognized for its continued excellence, the Resort’s overwater Spa has been bestowed with Four Stars for its unique concept, combining local organic ingredients with sophisticated skincare products. “Impactful and innovative are our two mantras at the spa,” explains Joelle Jennepy, Senior Director of Spa. “We pride ourselves on curating experiences such that every individual gets a personalised holistic healing.”

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley launches Private Retreats

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley, wine country’s leading luxury resort, sets a new standard for inspired vacations with the launch of its Private Retreats. The exquisite collection of one- and two-storey luxury residences blend seamlessly with the lush natural surroundings of charming Calistoga, offering guests an idyllic, private home-away-from-home nestled amid the property’s vineyards to reconnect and reunite in wine country.

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley, which recently opened as the region’s first and only resort located on a working winery, is delighted to add these eight extraordinary vacation homes to its boutique offering of accommodations. General Manager Mehdi Eftekari comments, “For discerning travellers looking to escape with their significant others, spend time with family in an intimate setting or celebrate special occasions with friends, the luxury residences at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley present a truly memorable vacation experience where the best of wine, wellness, culinary, and design come together like nowhere else. We look forward to hosting friends and families here to savour precious moments together.”

The residences in the Private Retreats collection are masterfully designed by renowned architects and designers to make the very best of living, hosting, and vacationing possible. The homes’ interiors range from 2,500 to 3,460 square feet (232-320 square metres), featuring one premier four-bedroom residence with a private pool along Napa Valley’s famed Silverado Trail.

Each spacious sanctuary draws inspiration from the California countryside, pairing modern farmhouse architecture with sophisticated yet understated interiors featuring earth-tone colours, board and batten siding, meticulous stone detailing, and pitched metal roofs. The residences feature well-appointed bedrooms, private open-concept kitchens – ideal for entertaining and gatherings large and small – plus five-fixture bathrooms evoking spa-like serenity, walk-in closets, and spacious private outdoor terraces with fire pits to unwind and admire striking views of the vineyards and Palisades Mountains.

For ultimate relaxation and enjoyment – wine country style – a variety of services and amenities are available to book, including pre-arrival grocery shopping, on-site massages, intimate private yoga sessions, and more.

Just outside each residence’s front door, a 4.7-acre (1.9 hectare) vineyard and winery, helmed by winemaker Jonathan Walden and consulting winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, beckons with an authentic grape-to-glass experience. Wine aficionados and novices alike are invited to explore the world of wine and winemaking at Elusa Winery, including harvest activities and guided tasting sessions with expertly crafted cheese pairings. Guests also have the opportunity to enjoy the many other amenities on the grounds of Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley, including TRUSS Restaurant + Bar – a spirited dining destination with farm-fresh cuisine and sweeping views, plus two outdoor swimming pools dedicated for families and adults, CAMPO Poolside restaurant, the fully supervised Kids for All Seasons program, a bocce ball court, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, vineyard barn, meeting and event facilities, and Spa Talisa, a haven for relaxation and indulgence that is inspired by Calistoga’s 150+ years of wellness traditions.

At Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley, guests are treated to an incomparable hospitality experience centred on exceptional food, wine and spirits, wellness-inspired amenities, authentic service, and a distinct approachable luxury environment akin to its locale in the quaint town of Calistoga.
