Sun Resorts offer golfing guests the ultimate balance
A holiday at any of the four phenomenal Mauritius-based Sun Resorts can be anything you want it to be; whether you crave an active holiday coupled with relaxation, seek authentic Mauritian experiences, want to enjoy the finer things in life or simply want to escape to an adults-only oasis, there’s something for everyone.
To top this off, each of these resorts offers their golfing guests excellent opportunities to enjoy an exceptional game of golf. In a nutshell, whether you are on a family trip of a lifetime or are visiting Mauritius with your significant other, you can indulge in glorious food from around the world, have some time at a wonderful golf academy in Mauritius, embrace the wealth of outdoor activities, discover the island’s wonders, play golf on different courses or simply relax on the beach—allowing you to strike the perfect balance of your favourite activities—with your favourite people—while on holiday.
When you stay at Sun Resorts, you can enjoy privileged access to incredible golf courses
One of the best parts of staying at one of the magnificent Sun Resorts, is that you can make the most of the privileged access to some of the island’s most incredible golf courses (Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club, Tamarina Golf Club or Anahita Golf Course depending on the resorts you are staying at) and certain complimentary transfer shuttles to and from the golf courses.
While the boat shuttle to Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club is complimentary for all guests staying at a Sun Resorts hotel, shuttles to and from the hotels to Pointe Maurice as well as to and from the other golf courses are either complimentary or offered at an extra fee (this differs from hotel to hotel due to their different locations).
Curious non-golfers and beginners can enjoy a complimentary golf initiation
Because Mauritius is such a fabulous golfing destination, Sun Resorts affords any non-golfers who have always been curious about trying a game of golf and beginners the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary golf initiation. This amazing introductory session allows beginers to have a better understanding of golf during a one-hour discovery session (which takes place daily) guided by one of the in-house golf pros at the Ile aux Cerfs Golf Academy, arguably one of the best golf academies in Mauritius. Here you will learn the basics of golf, golf terminology and golf equipment, after which you can hit a few extra balls or even book your next lesson followed by a trip to the clubhouse or the Ile aux Cerfs Leisure Island.
Fancy a comprehensive golf lesson?
As mentioned above, Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club offers guests access to an excellent golf academy. At this golf academy in Mauritius, apart from practising your swing and making the most of the golf initiation, you can indulge in a private golfing lesson with one of the PGA golf professionals at the academy which is open to both absolute beginners and avid golfers. During these lessons (which can take the form of group lessons or private one-on-one lessons depending on what you need) some of the best state-of-the-art golfing equipment is used—such as video camera swing analysis tech to help you correct your posture and perfect your swing—to ensure that your game of golf is as good as it can be.
What’s more is that Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club is not the only golf course that offers access to a whole new world of golf at their golf academy, Tamarina Golf Club and Anahita Golf Course (another Sun Resorts partner golf course) also has an extraordinary golf academy that offers a range of golfing lessons.
You can head to the golf course just for a little practice
If you are not looking to take part in a full-on golfing lesson at the Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club, Tamarina Golf Club or Anahita Golf Course Academy in Mauritius, but aren’t quite ready to hit the greens, then head to one of the golf academies to get yourself back into practice. The world-class practice zone at Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club has been created to international standards and offers budding golfers an excellent place to practice. There are practice balls are on offer and you can even make the most of the practice zone pros that will help you get the most from your practice session (if you so desire).
The kids can join in the fun too
If you are an avid golfer heading to Mauritius for an incredible family holiday, why not let your kids in on all the golfing fun that this stunning island has to offer? At any of the three family-friendly Sun Resorts in Mauritius, your children can get enjoy their very own introduction to the game of golf at the kids clubs. These clubs have their own set of specialised children’s golfing equipment that allows very young kids to learn about the game which is built into the kids club programme—the perfect way to ensure your kids have a grasp (and probably a love) of golf from a young age. And if you want to take it a step further for your kids, head to Long Beach hotel, where the four holes that are actually located on the premises of the hotel are ideal for kids to enjoy some “real world” golf and practice rounds.
The partner golf courses have more to offer than just golf
Of course, the main reason to head to any of the island’s most extraordinary golf courses (specifically those that have partnered with Sun Resorts) is to enjoy a fantastic game of golf on world-class golf courses that boast unparalleled views of the volcanic island of Mauritius. However, there is so much more to do around the courses themselves; excellent restaurants offer wonderful food with beautiful views and if you (and your family) head to Ile aux Cerfs, you can also make the most of the beautiful beaches, ample restaurants and leisure activities—it makes for a superb day out in the African sun with your loved ones.
