Tasteful Mauritius

In the words of the renowned Mark Twain, who once mused that "Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius," the island rightfully earns its fame for its pristine sapphire-blue waters, picturesque powder-white beaches, and the presence of luxurious resorts that offer unparalleled vistas of the mesmerizing Indian Ocean.

Leave the Mainland Behind

Leave the mainland behind and venture into the enchanting paradise of Mauritius, renowned for its captivating sapphire-blue waters, pristine powder-white beaches, and luxurious resorts that offer unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean. These havens exude elegance, offering impeccable service, indulgent spas, stylish rooms, and a plethora of watersports. With dreamy swimming pools, lush palm-filled landscapes, and world-class restaurants, your stay here will create cherished memories, leaving you yearning to return. It's not only the exceptional comfort and opulence that leave a lasting impression, but also the resorts' genuine warmth, discretion, and the unmistakable treatment fit for royalty.

Active Mauritius

What to do, what to do? Lie on a beach all day? Or enjoy the wonderful range of activities on offer? Either way, you can't really lose and there's not much you can't do here on the water – highlights include kitesurfing, boat excursions to the beautiful islands of the lagoon, and the full suite of paddling activities offered by hotels and beach operators. But the diving and snorkelling here is terrific, encircled as Mauritius is by shallow waters, a coral reef, sublime underwater topography and a dramatic ocean drop-off. On land, you’ll need to decide between fabulous hiking, horse riding and even championship-standard golf courses. Decisions, decisions…

Wildlife Island

Once thought to be the preserve of nearby Madagascar, wildlife tourism in Mauritius is rapidly gaining in popularity. And why wouldn’t it? Mauritius has saved more bird species from extinction than any other country on earth, with the result that you can now see two of the loveliest birds of the Indian Ocean – the pink pigeon and the Mauritian kestrel – at various places around the island. Giant tortoises – in captivity in their hundreds, or roaming free on Île aux Aigrettes – are another drawcard, while dolphins, whales and sharks are just three highlights of the island’s richly biodiverse marine environment.
