At the Crown Lodge, life is not only good but colourful... last Saturday your preferred host Jacques was in comapny of the  'Ladies in Blue'... Well earned few minutes 'off duty' for Jacques who never stops to make sure his guests are well looked after !

As usual the guests at The Crown Lodge will not stop smiling... because their glasses are always full and the snacks fresh from the oven.  All that in front of the finishing line and winning post !

If you wish to go down to the jockey area and see them get weighed etc...just tell Jacques.  Your wish will be accomplished at the second...

Our guests are very lucky; they can, with Jacques as their guide, visit special places like the  'judges lodge' or meet with the top management! Below our guests meeting with the Asssistant General Manager, Mr Khalid Rawat...

Our friends at Racetime say that Scotsnog is the 'Champion To Be'... let's enjoy our meetings and watch the show.  Every Saturday the show is worth watching at the Crown Lodge.  Get smiles on your faces from start to finish !

From one of our guests, Mrs Sumaridge :

'Although my husband and I have been lucky enough to go racing in many places in the world, this experience will stay long in our memory banks. Quite unique in many ways! Champ de Mar was packed (always lovely to see) but Jacques and his colleagues ensured that we were escorted in and out and the box was informal and relaxed but yet very hospitable. Jaques ensured that we both enjoyed unique experiences. Even if you are not a racing fan, it is to be recommended....if you are it is unmissable'

We thank you for your support and look forward to pamper you during the whole day on this Saturday of the beautiful month of May...

For those packing their suitcases to visit Mauritius, don't forget that your favourite excursion and the highlight of your stay is a horse racing day at the Crown Lodge !

Sunset in Mauritius... from all of us ❤
