We spent a lovely 10 days starting with a warm welcome by Pradeep, a very nice and forthcoming man whose sharp ears never missed out a detail about our preferences, which were mostly around food/Cooking, we were looking forward to eat a local cari chicken.
It turns out all employees are very kind and as opposed to more classical hotels, you can engage in longer conversations about Mauritius and the places to see.
Another gentleman stood out, Raj has been great and offered us a cooking class with the chef and surprise we learned how to cook a proper cari chicken!
It was a superb experience and we have stuck to that recipe ever since (with less chili though). We have also enjoyed our evening chats with Sanjay who really loves his country especially the Morne area offering a great scenery for every fishing expedition.
We can absolutely recommend this hotel and while not going on much about the facilities which are what you would expect in a 5 star: luxurious and clean, what stands out is the people, they each represent the hotel no matter their role, from the cleaning lady Padmini to the restaurant staff, Sanjay, Marvin, Anastajia and Raj.
This was our first trip to Mauritius but it wont be the last, we will gladly book again at the So Sofitel.
