We believe that holidays are not only for escaping the everyday, but also a precious chance to reconnect and remind ourselves of the most important thing in life – each other.
Derived from 'tamasha', a Hindi word used in Mauritian Creole meaning festive, Tamassa’s three syllables evoke the pounding beat of the tam-tam drum. Our rallying call to gather family and friends and join us at a place dedicated to sharing good times, together.
We want to ensure that all our guests feel a little closer and leave happier than when they arrived. With dining experiences to remember, activities to share or simply moments to cherish, at Tamassa, ‘together’ really is a wonderful place to be.
We believe in celebrating the little things that make you smile, surrounded by those who matter most. Perfect your duet during a karaoke session or enjoy the simple pleasure of discovering a wooden swing strung from a tree. It’s often the unexpected moments that become your favourite holiday memories.
Inspired by the pursuit of happiness and joy, this isn’t your usual resort spa. More fun and less prescriptive, forget serious staff and hushed voices. Reserve some personal ‘me time’, a bonding experience for two or even some social pampering. It’s your space to relax, treat yourself and enjoy each other’s company.
The best memories are often made around a table, and good food always tastes better paired with great company. With a focus on fresh, simple ingredients paired with a dose of theatricality and fun, we’re bringing the art of conversation back to the table – and everyone’s invited.
Happy kids equals happy parents, and we’ve not forgotten about our youngest guests when it comes to sharing good times. At our Kids Club, we guide children back to the days when summer holidays meant making real friends, and ended with a new ‘best friend forever’.
Everyone appreciates a break from the lounger and the chance to try something new, but in addition to the holiday activities you’ve probably come to expect, we offer our guests something a little more meaningful. At Tamassa, you’ll discover what we mean when we say that laughter really is the best therapy.
After months of physically distancing, I'm sure, like me, you're dreaming of returning to your favourite destination. Looking back now, especially as we live through the strangest time of our lives, what I think about the most is how we as a team - and really, as a family - have been able to stay socially connected, supportive and hopeful. That includes guests and team members supporting each other in every way we can imagine. The greatest gift we can share right now is one of friendship, kindness and optimism. We received so many heart-warming letters from guests from all over the world, showing their care and expressing their wish to return as soon as they are able, and it's been nothing short of encouraging and uplifting for the team's motivation. As we take steps towards recovery and planning where to go next, we probably have many questions on our minds on how safe it is to be travelling and the proper precautions we need to take before embarking on our next voyage. I would like to assure you that the comfort, safety and wellness of our extended family remain our utmost priority. To ensure you are holidaying with peace of mind, we offer a flexible rebooking and cancellation policy as follows:
We have also made some service adjustments in consultation with SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, in addition to the precautionary measures recommended by the World Health Organisation.
The teams of LUX* Resorts & Hotels, SALT Resorts and Tamassa Resorts understand the courage it takes for the brave people to fight on the frontline. Our teams have banded together to provide support to their local communities. In Mauritius, SALT of Palmar produced 500 reuseable face masks for the villagers and police in Belle Mare; LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas, LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas and LUX* Le Morne Resort baked over a thousand cupcakes to thank the first responders for their selfless service rendered during the country's confinement; and the team at Tamassa put together care packs consisting of daily necessities and dry goods for the underprivileged. Over in Yunnan, China, LUX* Tea Horse Road Benzilan has been doing their part to care for the environment by picking up trash along nature trails and hiking routes, in addition to cleaning and volunteering their services in the revered Tibetan Buddhist temples in Shangri-La.
This unprecedented situation has taught us how fragile freedom is and travelling as we know it will now change irrevocably,
but it will bounce back. We eagerly await your return. Meanwhile, stay safe and stay in touch.
