If you're searching for sensational service, a plethora of activities, platinum white sands and lush green interiors, then a luxury Mauritius holiday is ideal for you. Sometimes cited as a blueprint for paradise itself, this may just be the perfect tropical island.
The best thing about Mauritius has to be its 177km of spectacular, vibrant coastline. Surrounding coral reefs ensure that the island is a great destination for watersports, diving and snorkelling.
However, there’s also plenty to do on land. The thriving capital, Port-Louis, is home to the Champ de Mars, the oldest racecourse in the Indian Ocean. To the south of the island, the lush and mountainous Black River National Park and Valley of Colours National Park are also 'must-sees'. Dining on the island is also unforgettable experience – a unique mix of Chinese, French, Indian, Creole and African cultures means that the cuisine derives from a rather fantastic fusion of flavours.
Mauritius holidays provide the opportunity to have lazy days on the beach admiring the clear blue waters, or to enjoy the truly special experience afforded by the many luxury hotels. Exclusive, chic and friendly – what are you waiting for?
A melting pot of cultures and traditions, the island’s colourful past makes the Mauritius of today a vibrant place to visit. Service here is renowned as being some of the very best in the world and you’re guaranteed a very warm welcome by a nation proud to show off their tropical island. The landscape here blends from the central lush green interior, to the platinum white sands of the beaches, surrounded by turquoise waters enclosed by a coral barrier reef. With plenty to offer on land, as well as on, under or by the sea, your luxury Mauritius holiday will provide an idyllic island escape.
The island’s fantastic natural landscapes and climate has ensured the creation of many incredible golf courses - its Gymkhana Golf Club, founded in 1844, is the oldest in the southern hemisphere. Experiencing the marine world by snorkelling or scuba diving is one thing, but in Mauritius you can walk on the seabed around the clear lagoon in Grand Baie. After a brief introduction, you will be given your lead boots and diving helmet with breathing tubes for a slow motion tour of the underwater reefs.
