Mauritius

 

Long white sandy beaches and wonderfully warm, protected waters make this a perfect beach destination.

Mauritius

 

Mauritius is a small island (about the size of Surrey), positioned in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, about 1200 miles off the coast of East Africa. The island’s culture is a fascinating blend of Indian, Chinese, African and European and the people are famously welcoming and friendly.

Mauritius is famous for the many top-quality hotels strung out along the coast with its long powder-white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. There are over 90 resort hotels in all, from “three star” to “five star plus” and there are very few small hotels or villas to rent.

The standard of service is generally excellent.

This is the place for the ultimate in “packaged” holidays where you are happy to spend most of your holiday in your hotel grounds, enjoying the very best in service and comfort, with spas, fantastic food, cocktails and lots of water-based activities.The hotels sometimes include water sports such as water-skiing, kayaking, wind surfing, sailing and snorkelling in the half board rate. The coral reef surrounding Mauritius means that water sports are ubiquitous and safe.

Mauritius is perfect for families. Many of the top hotels offer complimentary kids clubs for children aged 3 and upwards, and babysitting, so there is no worry about compromising your holiday standards to accommodate your children.

The idyllic setting, warm weather and choice of luxury hotel accommodation make Mauritius a favourite for honeymooners. Several properties offer extra treats for honeymoon couples, to make your holiday even more special.

Mauritius has defined itself as a luxury and exclusive beach hotel destination.
