Heritage Resorts is renowned for its impressive food and beverage offering, with 12 restaurants including Annabella’s – located on the banks of the river with an open and interactive show-kitchen, Gin’ja – a Pan Asian restaurant on the beach offering a teppanyaki experience, the African-themed open-air Boma and Le Chateau de Bel Ombre – an enchanting 19th century Manor house.

Le Chateau de Bel Ombre, now sources 90% of its ingredients from around the Domaine de Bel Ombre, truly encompassing the ‘farm-to-table’ concept. With an emphasis on authentic Mauritian cuisine, Le Chateau’s menu features local game such as venison and wild boar, native fruit and vegetables grown on the estate and freshly-picked herbs and spices, particular to Mauritius. Set in a French-style garden, guests can enjoy views of the verdant hills, azure ocean and sugar fields of the Domaine de Bel Ombre.
