We were very suprised...for us it was very amazing view and we enjoyed the racing, thanks to Jacques Ritter.


Our concierge was unable to get us booked into the Crown Lodge as it was full. We decided to email Jaques to ask if there were any cancellations could he let us know? Jacques replied almost straight away & after a discussion with my husband he told us, to our delight, that he would be able to give us access to the members lounge. The only thing was we had to locate a jacket & tie for my husband to wear. Not something he would usually bring on holiday! Thankfully the wonderful Venay at our hotel came to his rescue by providing him with a jacket & Jacques kindly supplied the tie.
Despite not actually spending the whole afternoon in the Crown Lodge venue we were warmly welcomed by Jaques & his team. We had an identical experience to his guests at the lodge. They constantly checked on us to make sure everything was ok. The drink was constantly supplied by the helpful waiters & the food on offer was of a very good standard too. We met other guests of Jacques in the members lounge & had a very enjoyable afternoon.
The ladies had a behind the scene visit to the meet with officials & watch one of the races from the commentary box! The men were taken to the weigh room after a race & got to meet the champion jockey this season.
After the races had finished we joined Jacques, his team and the other guests & continued to enjoy the fantastic hospitality that was on offer.
If you ever plan a holiday to Mauritius make sure you book this day out. It was worth every penny & we would highly recommend it. The season runs on fixed dates with race meetings held on a Saturday.
Thank you Jacques & your team for one of the highlights of our holiday!

It was one of the best days in Mauritius when we visited The Crown Lodge. From beginning until end it was a great day. The service was exceptional and everything was very well organized. We didn't have to worry about anything during the day. On the arrival we were warmly welcomed by Jacques and shown around. We had a great view of the finishing post from the VIP box. There was plenty snacks and drinks throughout the whole day. It was a great experience for us and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a brilliant day out on Mauritius. Thank you to The Crown Lodge for a wonderful day!
