Luxury Mauritius Holidays
An island bursting with shades of aquamarine, emerald and turquoise, Mauritius embraces its colour scheme of an Indian Ocean paradise. From pure white sands and the calmest waters enfolded within a band of ornate coral, to startling mountains draped in jungle, it's easy to see why Mauritius holds so much appeal. We've explored this island idyll to hand pick the most exceptional places to stay, each offering its own unique take on the perfect Mauritian experience.
As you fly in over Mauritius, it is instantly clear you are arriving somewhere special. You have to see the astounding landscape of the island to believe it, and your arrival will not leave any doubt in your mind that Mauritius is truly distinctive. You'll spot the forested mountains of the Chamarel, colourful Creole villages, and 100 miles of postcard-perfect beaches.
Although Mauritius is much more than a beach destination, you cannot help but be drawn in by the natural grandeur of coastal life here. Make the most of the powder sands and the luxurious trimmings offered by the beach-front resorts. Whether a coffee or cocktail on the beach is your thing, this can quickly become a daily ritual. Any why not take the time to breathe in this Mauritian splendour? When it's time for a little activity, the sea is a huge draw. Take a tip in the calm waters, and go snorkelling or diving to discover just what the third largest coral reef in the world looks like.
Although you may need to pull yourself away from the allure of the coast, it is more than worth doing so to find out about life on the rest of the island. Its idyllic isolation from the rest of the world means the biosphere in Mauritius is unlike anywhere else. Find out what this really means on inland hiking trails to spot some of the world's rarest plants and animals. To experience yet another side of Mauritius, the capital of Port Louis has a distinctive energy. This is a place to explore the thrumming streets and to do a spot of shopping in the spirited market. Elsewhere in Mauritius, golf courses, waterfalls, botanical gardens and languorous fishing villages show off the many facets to the island's seductive personality.
The food culture of Mauritius is yet another striking element of the island's exceptional DNA. If you are curious by cuisine that is influenced by Creole, French, Chinese and Indian cooking, then you are in for a treat here. Not only is this an incredible combination of flavours for all the senses, most of the dishes are filled with produce grown in the island's fertile soils. Your mealtimes will roam from hot curries wrapped in buttery breads, to chopped fruit covered in sugar and chilli. Washed down with fresh coconut water or cocktails muddled with locally produced cane rum, all your senses will be sated by the end of your Mauritian adventure.
