The tropical island of Mauritius, hidden away in the southern Indian Ocean, is a heavenly combination of glittering blue lagoons, velvet, white sand beaches, and sprawling rainforests. Although most are drawn here by the lure of idyllic palm-fringed shores, look a little further and you’ll find this tiny island holds the key to exotic explorations and an abundance of marine adventures too.

A holiday to Mauritius will certainly deliver when it comes to picture-perfect beaches, in fact, it's fair to say you’ll find some of the best white sand beaches in the world here. For the ultimate fly and flop escape, try one of the fabulously luxurious resorts along the west coast and if you can tear yourself away from your sun lounger you’ll find some excellent snorkelling, diving, and plenty of water sports on offer too. If you prefer your animal encounters above water level, head to Tamarin Bay for a spot of dolphin watching, or if you are travelling with children stop by La Cuvette beach in the north which is perfect for families to swim.

Against a backdrop of mountains draped in stunning shades of green, dramatic volcanic peaks and enchanting waterfalls, this lush and vibrant island is home to many beautiful parks where you’ll find giant tortoises meandering amongst exotic flora and fauna and rare, native plants. There are some fantastic walking trails to be navigated and for something a little different, jump onto a horse-drawn carriage at Domaine des Pailles where you’ll be lead through the spice garden, sugar houses, and rum distillery.

Should you choose to stay near the island’s vibrant capital of Port Louis, you’ll discover some excellent restaurants, influenced by a mix of European, African, Indian, and Chinese descendants that have made their mark on the island and its cuisine over time. Whilst you’re here, take the chance to indulge in a little retail therapy and for a splash of culture in between all that sunbathing, take the time to explore some of the magnificent sculptures and beautiful Hindu temples that can be found here.

Mauritius is a magnet for honeymooners or those looking for a romantic escape, but it’s also equally as popular for its excellent family-friendly facilities, award-winning golf courses, and sumptuous spas and wellness retreats. Whatever it is your looking for in an escape to Mauritius, our experienced Travel Consultants are here to make sure your holiday is as unique as you are.

ESCAPE FOR: Something a Little Different


Long tipped as the best address in Mauritius, this distinguished haven, and playground for the rich and famous, nestles on the Belle Mare peninsula, fringed by over a mile of stunning white-sand beach. Nothing here is understated, as you enter via the imposing gates, prepare to be seduced by the sparkling lagoon and achingly elegant interiors.

ESCAPE FOR: Unapologetic Indulgence


A totally unique concept in Mauritius, Zilwa Attitude welcomes its guests to experience true Creole culture. You can enjoy a meal with a local family or spend the morning onboard the hotels fishing boat whilst children enjoy treasure hunts on a private island. Perhaps you'd prefer to just kick back and soak up the view from what some may argue, is the best beach on the island. It’s the experiences that really set this place apart, so prepare to leave feeling like a true islander!

ESCAPE FOR: Authentic Family Fun


Named after one of the most famous couples in French literature, this charming and intimate hotel just oozes romance. We love this adult-only retreat's dedication to creating “us” moments. De-stress with a couples massage, re-connect on the secluded cove-style beach or spend the afternoon on the hotel's catamaran, exclusively available to Veranda guests.

The daringly different Bubble Lodge takes glamping to a whole new level. These cosy, and impressively high tech, eco-domes are spread along the edge of a wooded crater within the southern tea plantation. Cocooned in nature, the restaurant offers gourmet dining, and the extensive activities programme will leave you (and the kids) with memories that last a lifetime!
