Dining al fresco style has never looked so good. Forget fussy accoutrements and bring on a lighter hearted dining experience, inspired by authentic local flavours. Share a romantic candle-lit dinner on the beach under star-lit skies. And if the sun isn't intoxicating enough, enjoy a cool sunset cocktail overlooking the ocean.
Le Badamier (7 a.m to 10 a.m / 12 p.m to 3 p.m / 7 p.m to 9.30 p.m)
Built around an old badamier tree, Le Badamier is surrounded by the bright flowers and emerald hues of tropical gardens. Unpretentious dishes inspired by Chinese, Creole and French traditions, draw on the many cultural influences of Mauritius. There's also a pizzeria tucked away in a corner, for when you all you crave is a crispy crust and melted cheese.
Tables d'hôte menus and gourmet barbecues are also a popular attraction, along with regular themed dinners to the crooning of local musicians and entertainers. And if you somehow can't find what you're looking for, then chances are it's on the tempting buffet heaped with fresh salads, sticky sweets and more.
La Terasse (10 a.m 1 a.m)
Languorously perched on the edge of the beach facing the lagoon, La Terasse offers beach service and a shady retreat, under a traditional thatched roof. As trendy beats skip out across the lagoon, quench your thirst with our very own island water packaged in sustainable, recyclable bottles. Or for something with a little more punch, try one of our exotic cocktails. They are a local specialty that will send your taste buds into orbit.
Beach and Room Service
It's not a truly perfect island holiday unless you're being served deliciously refreshing treats while lounging beside the pool, ocean or in the comfort of your room. Make the most of your stay with our beach and room service facilities.
At Merville Beach, we don't do ordinary. All of our entertainment is performed by genuine, enthusiastic and highly talented dancers, musicians and artists of every kind. From the rhythmic beat of the Mauritian Sega to the very best local music troupes and performers, every evening is an opportunity to experience something new and truly authentic.
Although there's no particular dress code during the day, we do ask you not to wear uncovered swimming attire in the restaurant during breakfast time. Evening wear is smart-casual after 6pm. And gentlemen, no flip-flops or shorts in the restaurants and bars during dinnertime please.
