Exquisite and exotic, Mauritius is an island for all seasons, all weathers and all tastes. 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. Whether you after a perfect family holiday, a romantic honeymoon, or a revitalizing escape as a couple, Mauritius has a diverse range of luxury hotels and resorts to suit all tastes. Here are just a few of our very favourites.
Away from the big crowds on the island’s south coast and wrapped in 36 acres of landscaped tropical garden sits Shanti Maurice, an elegant luxury resort. Everything at Shanti Maurice is geared to the wellbeing of the guest – from the spacious villas and suites, all of which face the ocean and many of which have private pools, to the comprehensive spa facilities. A full choice of water sports is available as are both golf and tennis, while the Nira Spa specialises in a host of wellbeing programmes, including a year-round programme of visiting masters.
The Residence Mauritius
From the dramatic entrance of its lobby to the silken sands which border it, The Residence is one of the most luxurious hotels in the whole of the Indian Ocean. Colonial in feel yet contemporary in delivery, the hotel attracts the discerning holidaymaker year after year. Lavish grounds, stunning beach, spacious rooms, butler service and a terrific children’s club all help make this property one of the best on the island. Add to that an award-winning spa, fitness room, pilates, yoga & meditation classes, and every water sport you can imagine, including an undersea walk, and you have the dream property, perfect for both families and couples.
One&Only Le Saint Geran
Mauritius’ original five-star hotel, the One&Only Le Saint Geran still leads the way with exemplary service and world-class facilities. Cocooned by 60 acres of tropical landscaped gardens it is edged by white sands and warm turquoise sea on its own peninsula on the northeast coast. An all-suite property, each with a private terrace or balcony facing the ocean or the bay, it also offers 24-hour butler service. The hotel provides a choice of eight restaurants and bars, as well as a Gary Player-designed golf course, every type of water sport from snorkelling to Hobie Cat sailing, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a spa and children’s club.
Shangri-La Le Touessrok
After an extensive renovation Shangri-La Le Touessrok reopened in November 2015. This world renowned luxury hotel set on the beautiful east coast of Mauritius is incredibly chic and offers beautifully styled rooms, contemporary dining options, a kids club, spa, access to 18 hole championship golf, and access to Ile aux Mangenie for an alternative beach experience. Whether you opt for a relaxing break lounging on the pristine sandy beach and indulging in some pampering spa treatments, or decide for something more active with the range of watersports and activities on offer, you will find exactly what you seek at Shangri-La La Touessrok.
Constance Belle Mare Plage
Located on the north-east coast of the island, the Constance Bell Mare Plage boasts a two-kilometre stretch of white coral sand, two championship golf courses and a selection of rooms, suites and villas, all of which have views of the sea or the gardens, and 20 of which have their own private pool. It is an ideal place for a family holiday as it offers something for everyone, from a children’s club to a spa. The resort has a separate dining area for children as well as a children’s menu, while babysitting services and family villas are available. A wide variety of water sports is also on offer.
