The Four Seasons resort in Mauritius is wonderfully close to the Anahita Wilderness sanctuary, allowing visitors to get close to nature while keeping close to all the modern amenities the resort can offer. The luxury resort offers 4 beautiful restaurants to its patrons, enabling it to cater for all tastes and moods.
All of the rooms come with private plunge pools and state of the art comforts. The world class spa draws on the experiences of several continents to offer a wide range of therapies from all around the world.
Children are well-provided for at the Four Seasons Mauritius with ‘Kids for All Seasons’. They will learn to line-fish, hunt for crabs in rock pools, try their hands at arts and crafts and even play mini tennis and mini golf. They can also experience an introduction to diving and other water sports.
The 13+ group is catered for with the Karokan ‘hangout’; a place for youngsters to get away from the family for a little while, surf the internet on the computers and play video games. Table tennis and table football are available at Karokan, as is pool. More active youngsters can have a go at water-sports, tennis or golf.
The Four Seasons Mauritius has recently unveiled its Kids Golf Academy; a unique and fun learning experience to start children off on their golfing path. The Academy caters for children aged from 5 to 16 at all levels of skill. The expert coaches tailor the lessons and construct the courses to the child’s level of skill, whether he or she is a complete novice just starting out or very good at the game, just needing to refine their techniques. There is a choice of a one day course, or a three day course. The day starts with the child or children – the resort can cater for groups of one to four children in a session – being fitted out at the Pro Shop, with polo shirt, cap and gloves. Then they are taken on a tour of the Golf Academy which finishes with a visit to see the courses oldest residents, a pair of Giant Aladabra Tortoises named Gromomo and Ticolo!
After a break for lunch there is a two-hour lesson involving individual coaching, the opportunity to make use of the video swing-capture software and practise on the driving and putting greens. If the child has opted for the three day course, the other two days follow a similar pattern of practising techniques and honing skills, and may even include the chance to play a hole or two on the wonderful Ernie Els designed golf-course.
The instructors will present a certificate and DVD of the video swing capture footage to the family over breakfast the next morning, a wonderful memento of a fabulous and instructive holiday.
