About Mauritius Island
Surrounded by sandy white beaches and cooled by trade winds, Mauritius is a tropical island paradise, par excellence. A wonderful place to get married and enjoy a dreamy honeymoon, it nestles amidst the azure waters. Look forward to elegant hotels offering wonderful spas, fine dining, excellent water sports, great kids clubs and world-class golf courses. The incredible levels of service, attention to detail and quality of delivery here ensure world-class holidays.
There is something very special about Mauritius. Holidays here are as close as you can get to a glimpse of heaven on earth. If you have never been before, prepare to be bowled over by the crystal seas, the glowing colours, the friendly people.
The island’s official language is English, but you’ll hear Creole, French, Hindi, Urdu and other tongues. The local Creole dance, Séga, is downright sexy - get those feet shuffling and that body gyrating! But before dancing time, there’s eating to be done, and you’ll find a magnificent mixture of cuisines here, including Creole, European, Chinese and Indian, with brilliant seafood always the culinary highlight of your package holiday.
Mauritius holidays also offer the opportunity to enjoy some fantastic water sports too, including windsurfing, sailing and diving. The island is surrounded by reefs; if snorkelling or diving is not your thing, you can view them in a semi-submersible boat at Grand Baie Reef. On dry land, you’ll find some idyllic golf courses with views out to sea that may well distract your golf swing. Kids will love La Vanille Crocodile Park and Waterpark Leisure Village, and if you like to shop, you’ll appreciate the recent removal of import duty on various goods. You can be sure to bring back some bargains with you.
Mauritius is blessed with miles of beautiful beaches. One of the longest stretches is at Belle Mare - the spotless white sands seem to go on forever. Le Morne and Tamarin with their waterfalls are lovely, and popular for surfing. Flic en Flac’s sands are fringed with casuarina trees, and in the southeast, Blue Bay is a popular bathing spot. Don’t miss the little cove of Pereybere, a fine place for a dip.
You may think that just being in Mauritius is therapy enough for the body and mind, but you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit one of the island’s wonderful spas. A couple of the properties we feature, the Hilton and Beau Rivage, are home to 2 of the island’s most famous spas. Lie back and put yourself into the hands of capable experts, and you’ll feel your everyday cares just drifting away.
Golf is a great game wherever you play it, but with the backdrop of a paradise island, you’ll be transported to golfing heaven. The island’s courses offer private pro lessons and you can hire clubs, balls and caddies. Golf courses are available at Belle Mare Plage, Le Telfair, Tamassa and Le Touessrok - recently voted one of the 10 best courses in the world.
