There are 214 rooms at Tamassa. These are organised into 118 Standard Rooms, 72 Superior Rooms and 24 Deluxe Rooms.
Standard Rooms (43m²)
The decor is strikingly attractive, with pure, simple lines contrasting with bright green touches on the bedspreads, and an inspired image of a bird of paradise on the wall above the headboard. With the terrace door wide open, the colours in the room seem to blend with the trees and plants outside.
Each Standard Room has either a queen-size bed or twin beds. The bed cover, specially designed for the hotel, gives an immediate feeling of intimacy.
A sliding, wooden door opens up to reveal a spacious bathroom, bathed in natural light. As well as a corner bath, there is a separate shower cubicle edged in sintered-glass tiling, 2 washbowls on stands and wardrobe space. The toilet is behind a separate door.
The use of solid wood for all the doors and many of the fittings, gives a warm, rich feel to both rooms.
Superior Rooms (46m²)
Warm, sunny colours envelop the room. The decor is attractively uncluttered, with clean, contemporary lines offset here by touches of red orange.
An image of a huge, orchid stands above the wooden headboard and the touches of orange in the curtains and the uniquely designed bedcover are intoxicating.
The bathroom has a bath, two glass washbasins, a separate shower edged with decorated sintered-glass tiling, and a wardrobe. The toilet is behind a separate door.
The overall effect is invigorating, the kind of room that makes guests want to linger for a few weeks more.
Deluxe Rooms (49m²)
The orchid feature again predominates above the headboard of the queen-size bed, but this time shades of fuchsia are featured throughout to dramatic effect.
Kiatt, a wood from North Africa, is used throughout all the rooms. The clean, contemporary lines of the basic décor, offset here by the warmth of natural wood and the touches of fuchsia colour, have a simply stunning impact.
The bathroom has a bright, luxurious feel to it, with two white porcelain hand basins set on a taup golden marble stand and sintered-glass Bizassa tiling from Italy in the shower. The spacious bath, set in its own alcove, has marble surrounds.
All rooms have their own furnished terrace or balcony with sea view

Show Restaurant – Main Restaurant
The restaurant’s terrace overlooks the swimming pool.
Modern elegance greets guests, with gobos casting beams of light on the pure, contemporary lines of the interior, where shades of orange merge into rounded lines and cubic shapes.
The main restaurant is divided into three and based on the exciting concept of open kitchens, which adds a touch of theatre to the range of international cuisine. For the first part of the day, Tamassa specialises in lavish buffet breakfasts and lunches. Dinner is either à la carte or a sumptuous buffet.
La Playa - Beach Restaurant and Bar
As the name would suggest, the Beach Restaurant and Bar is a place to relax, with your feet in the sand, watching the sea, having a hearty salad lunch or enjoying latin cuisine.
The dinner menu varies from themed evenings to buffets and to à la carte.
B Bar - Lounge Bar
You walk into the Lounge Bar to be greeted by bright, contemporary elegance.
White, blue and ochre shades add a warm glow to the wood, steel and glass surfaces and fittings, as if the sand and sea have inspired the unique décor, combining modern and traditional touches.
From the ceiling, globes of light add to the subtle atmosphere, reflecting in the ivory-coloured flooring and its bluish decorative tiling.
The main bar is split-level and surrounded by large, comfortable armchairs. Mauritius produces some excellent rum and Mauritians are very inventive with their cocktails, but guests can also choose from a wide variety of international wines, beers, spirits and liqueurs.
Tilapia Kids Club
For children between 3 and 12 years old
Open from 09h00 to 22h00 every day
A circular building houses the Kids Club, which is next to the tennis courts. It has a large amphitheatre-shaped space for shows, a dining room on the terrace, 2 internet-access screens, a sandpit and a rest room. The Club is air-conditioned and is for children between 3 and 12.
The kids are looked after by qualified staff who organise activities suitable for their respective ages. A baby sitting service is available on request (with supplement).
