Mauritius Holidays

Mauritius holidays are what many people imagine when they picture a classic Indian Ocean island with white sand beaches, set to a backdrop of sugar cane fields and lush green mountains.  It has a fabulous range of top-end luxury hotels, from chic and elegant to full-on bling with the whole gamut of facilities and amenities, to suit almost every traveller.  This is a country of spas and sommeliers, where the art of hospitality is highly valued and where multi-starred hotels vie to out-do each other.

Mauritius: where to stay


East Coast:

 The glorious beaches on the east coast of Mauritius have attracted some of the island's best hotels and this is the most popular place to stay in Mauritius. The best beaches on the island are found in the north-eastern corner, where long stretches of powder-soft sand extend to cool pine groves and woodlands.  There are several fine, stylish hotels here which make the most of their stunning natural setting.   This area is perfect for an African honeymoon, although you do need to consider the wind during July and August.   Show me more >

 

Mauritius: our favourite hotels


The Prince Maurice’s Senior Villas are right up there in our favourite villas, each with a heated private pool and direct beach access.
 
If you’re looking for the best beach, look no further than the One and Only St Geran, with 60 acres of beautifully-landscaped grounds incorporating tropical gardens, pools and sweeping beaches.
 
For exclusivity and opulence, it’s the Oberoi; the sunken marble bath and four-poster bed are incredibly romantic.
 
Shangri La’s Le Touessrok is a fabulous choice for your Mauritius honeymoon, particularly if you opt to stay on their private island.
 
Dinarobin on the west coast gives you the best of two worlds: peace and tranquility but access to the neighbouring hotel’s golf course and restaurants.
