Mauritius

If you are looking for Paradise then look no further than Mauritius.

With its warm, clear turquoise waters lapping palm-fringed white sand beaches, lush tropical scenery it really is a destination that ticks all the right boxes.

Long known as a preferred destination for celebrities, magnificent Mauritius is a stunning option for all your holiday needs, with its wonderful climate, fascinating history and rich culture, great nightlife, dining and shopping, we could go on, but you should be getting the gist!

The beauty of the island truly is overwhelming making this a destination that is perfect for a holiday, honeymoon or destination wedding.  Those who love nature will be absolutely astonished by the majesty of the mountains, nature reserves and wildlife parks of Mauritius.

Set in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar, Mauritius is just 45km wide and 65km long, enjoying a tropical climate of two distinct seasons – summer and winter.  We say ‘winter’ (May – October), but even then the average daily temperature is around 25 degrees Celsius! The hot summer months (November – April) claim temperatures of up to 35 degrees Celsius on the coasts, so Mauritius is a year round destination with virtually guaranteed sunshine

Some of our Hotels

 

Lux-Belle-Mare-Mauritius
LUX BELLE MARE

One of my favourite hotels tucked away near Belle Mare with an amazing beach.  Kelly Hoppen created the interiors for this contemporary resort and it doesn’t disappoint.  The choice of restaurants and bars are superb and the Rum Shack was one of our favourite locations to meet in the evenings. We spent a few days here on our honeymoon and didn’t want to leave.

SHANDRANI

Located in the unspoilt south this is a fantastic 5* All Inclusive Resort with 3 beaches to choose from including the incredible Wild Beach, all set on a private peninsula within the Blue Bay Marine Park rich in sea life.

Pointe-Aux-Biches
VERANDA POINTE AUX BICHES
