Mauritius

Overview

Mauritius is sometimes referred to as “God’s Own Island in the Sun”. A name that seems fitting as there is a divine beauty to this luxury island retreat, cast adrift in the Indian Ocean.

The phrase “tropical paradise” is used with abandon these days, but Mauritius is what it was really intended to describe; the island belongs to the list of very elite worldwide luxury holiday destinations.

The beaches that contribute to its 330km of coastline are of brilliant ivory-white sands; the kind of beach where you can walk for hours and barely see a footprint let alone another soul. They’re fringed by long ranks of coconuts palms and casuarinas trees, swaying gently in the south-easterly trade winds.

It’s an island of remarkable biodiversity. In the surrounding shimmering cobalt waters, a rich marine world of unbroken rainbow-coloured reefs and schools of tropical fish exists. Placid lagoons – with boundaries formed of coral – shift between blues and greens in the tropical sun; a sight that confirms the island’s status among the most beautiful places in the world.

A luxury holiday to Mauritius doesn’t just confine you to the beach however. The lush interior is an adventure playground of awe-inspiring landscapes. Dramatic volcanoes tower over thick swathes of steamy jungle. Waterfalls thunder down the side of mountains and rivers snake past colonial ruins, Hindu temples and sugar plantations. Mauritius offers exceptional opportunities for outdoor activities.

The extravagant nature of private beach retreats in Mauritius ensure you have a true luxury holiday experience. Especially luxurious are the secluded villas built on stilts over the lagoons themselves. You’ll find designer boutiques in the resort of Belle Mare and Grand Baie, while the island’s cosmopolitan dining scene has seen a number of illustrious Michelin-starred restaurants like Alain Ducasse’s Spoon del Iles.

When booking a luxury holiday to Mauritius, you will receive expert impartial advice on the most suitable accommodation for your needs. Using a concierge-style service, we’ll create your perfect designer holiday experience.
