With its remote location in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is truly a little piece of heaven. This tropical island is unique in so many ways, from its multicultural population to its beaches, forests and mountains. Whether you want a secluded, romantic experience or plenty of shopping and nightlife, Mauritius luxury hotels are a perfect way to experience this gem of an island.
Water fun on the west coast
On the western coast of Mauritius, you will find the hugely popular beach Flic en Flac. With its 13 km of white sand and clear turquoise waters, this beach is the island’s longest. Don’t miss a chance to see the surrounding coral reef and its colourful inhabitants on a snorkelling dive with experienced guides. Luxury hotels here provide Ayurvedic spas, romantic dinners – even your own private villa with a pool.
Natural wonders in southern Mauritius
Covering 2% of the island’s surface, the Black River Gorges National Park protects and preserves the remaining rainforest and the native flora and fauna. The national park offers 60 km of nature trails and picnic areas. On the south-western tip, you will find Le Morne Brabant, a peninsula with a 556 m monolith that rises up dramatically behind the beautiful secluded lagoon.
Shopping and nightlife in the city
Grand Bay in the north of the island has great restaurants, night clubs and boutiques, as well as beautiful beaches. In the capital of Port Louis, you can get a taste of the Indian, Chinese, and French flavours that make up Mauritian cuisine.
