Set within the Sugar Beach resort in Flic en Flac Mauritius, stands the islands freshest dining & nightlife destination Buddha-Bar Beach - previously known as Tides.

The latest venue for renowned hotel chain Sun Resorts was conceived and applied as a renovation to the existing hotel pool bar. Sun Resorts expressed a strong desire to evolve the F&B offering and become recognized as a desirable setting rather than merely a back up area to the hotel pool.

The concept was something that the island was missing; a captivating modernized dining & nightlife destination that would excite and be frequented by all.

It, therefore, became clear from the onset that careful consideration was to be dedicated not just to the existing pool bar, but to the available surroundings including the beach and the hotel itself in the creation of a never-seen-before offering.
