Here’s what you need to know about Sugar Beach’s very own Buddha-Bar Beach:
It boasts a prime location
For those who are familiar with Sugar Beach, this funky new addition to the incredible five-star property boasts one of the best locations possible; right on the flawless beach. Sugar Beach’s Tides restaurant was closed and transformed into the trendy and luxurious Buddha-Bar by Buddha-Bar Beach it is today, which since its opening around mid-November 2018, has been an island hot spot, drawing in discerning guests looking for the best of the best. With the gentle ocean lapping the shore just a stone’s throw away, this beach bar is a superlative place to enjoy a fabulous cocktail at sunset or a special dinner to the incredible sounds of the fabled Buddha-Bar compilations.
It is a Mauritius first
The Buddha-Bar brand has been making waves across the globe since its inception in 1996, where the first Buddha-Bar was opened in Paris and fully embodied the ‘Art of Living’ concept. The Buddha-Bar restaurant-bar-lounges were started by Raymond Visan, the absolute visionary and restaurateur who already owned the Barfly in Paris (and now, under whose brand exists a plethora of different businesses and offerings).
Fuelled by a deep desire to create a unique experience, Raymond grew his ideas from inspiration he got from travelling to places such as California. Now, the Buddha-Bar brand has branched out into restaurants, hotels, spas, beauty lines and of course, music and can be found in all around the world in gorgeous destinations such as the Maldives, Paris, Monte-Carlo, London, Dubai, Manila, Baku, Budapest and Prague, and now, for the first time ever, it’s in Mauritius (this is not to be confused with the Buddha Club in Grand Baie, which is very different, and not affiliated, to the Buddha-Bar).
It offers an unforgettable experience
Buddha-Bar Beach is more than a restaurant or bar; it centres on a unique concept that allows guests to enjoy an incredible, unique experience while enjoying the phenomenal natural surrounds. Enjoy delicious and artfully created cocktail masterpieces before or after an unforgettable meal, indulge in a sumptuous dinner and embrace the the luxury island atmosphere enhanced by the sensational Buddha-Bar music, which is famous for its subtle avant-garde mix of lounge and house music as well as ethnic sounds - the perfect soundtrack to set the mood for your exceptional holiday in paradise. Here, the cocktails are absolutely extraordinary and totally unique, the food sublime and the atmosphere fresh, vibey and fun - it’s the must-visit spot for the ultimate hedonic experience in Mauritius.
The design of the establishment is also utterly Instagram-worthy, with design elements inspired by Ibiza and Goa, the glitzy beach destinations that became popular already in the 1980s. With a focus on natural elements such as wood, water and stone, the design elements are woven into beautiful organic features that boast a definite contemporary bohemian beach-chic flair that blends perfectly with the picturesque surrounds of Sugar Beach.
Buddha-Bar by Buddha-Bar Beach – Sugar Beach – A Sun Resort Mauritius is open every day from 10:00 until 2:00, with lunch served from 12:30 until 15:00, snacks from 15:00 until 17:30 and dinner from 19:00 until 22:00, which is then followed by more excellent music, a club-like feel and a chance to dance the night away.
The menu is out of this world
The exciting and contemporary fusion menu, like the entire Buddha-Bar concept, is heavily influenced by Pacific Rim destinations, with exceptional signature Buddha-Bar Asian and Mediterranean dishes taking centre stage, as delicious as they are stunning.
