Luxury Mauritius Holidays

Exquisite and exotic, Mauritius is an island for all seasons, all weathers and all tastes.

For centuries it has absorbed what it needs from visitors, conquerors, traders and pirates, whether they were French, Chinese, English, Dutch, Indian or East African, who all came to rest, stay or plunder. Hence it is now the most cosmopolitan of all the Indian Ocean islands. Whilst the coastline is near perfect with beautiful beaches and hidden coves, its interior offers mountains and forests, waterfalls and sparkling rivers alongside the occasional dormant volcano. The rich and luxuriant soil is why the vegetation is dense with more than 1,000 indigenous plants, and it is also why the island once got so rich from its sugar crops and plantations, remnants of which can still be explored today.
