Luxury Mauritius Holidays

Chic Indian Ocean hideaway

Mauritius transports you to an island paradise featuring turquoise lagoons bordered by ribbons of white sand beaches, with a tropical jungle and impressive mountain backdrop. Divers and adventurers will appreciate the colourful sea life, water sports, and shipwrecks, while families can enjoy precious time together paddling shallow, warm waters, and enjoying the year-round sunshine. Golfers will be spoilt for choice with world class fairways, including the famous 18-hole course on the Ile aux Cerfs islet. Couples can select from tranquil bays providing the perfect sanctuary to get away from it all.

Immerse yourself in the fusion of French, Chinese, Creole, and English influences found in the island’s vibrant culture and exquisite cuisine. Sample coq au vin in upmarket restaurants, or spicy samosas from roadside vendors. Visitors can also enjoy year-round festivals, highlights of which include the Cavadee Festival in January or February, featuring flower covered arches, the colourful Lord Shiva Hindu Festival in March and Diwali during October and November.

Luxury holidays in Mauritius

Holidays in Mauritius offer a wealth of sightseeing opportunities, including an excursion to the island capital of Port Louis and its swanky waterfront and colourful markets. The whole family will enjoy exploring Pamplemousses. Botanical Gardens or a sugar cane plantation, while for a unique experience witness the red, orange, grey, and purple sands of the Seven Coloured Earths at Chamarel. Belle Mare and Turtle Bay feature swathes of golden sands, while Bel Ombre offers peaceful rural charm. Flic en Flac attracts visitors with its tranquil beach scene and impressive dive sites.

Bel Ombre
The slow pace of south-westerly Bel Ombre harks back to its village roots. Just a handful of top-class hotels and a golf course stretch between the beach and countryside.


Set on the fringes of a national park, Chamarel delivers lush scenery, sugarcane plantations, and photogenic sand dunes. The coast is only a 10-minute drive away, too. 

Trou d'Eau Douce
Trou d’eau Douce curves around a deep-cut bay on the east coast. Its trump card? Neighbouring Île aux Cerfs. This tropical-postcard island is one of the most-visited places in Mauritius.

Grand Gaube
The crinkled coastline means that most hotels and resorts here have more than one beach for you to enjoy and they are sheltered by forests of banyan trees and coconut palms – the perfect tropical backdrop.

You are in for an exotic treat in Mauritius. Dishes come with a variety of Creole, Chinese, French and Indian influences. Being an island, the seafood is, of course, to die for. Creole curries are popular as are spicy, Indian-inspired curries; just ask for an extra dollop of sour cream with them if you prefer to cool things down. To wash it all down, Mauritian rum is right for the job! You can find it in all sorts of delicious flavours, including vanilla and cinnamon.

When to go

Mauritius is a year-round destination, with summer and winter months offering something different. The summer months, from October through to April, are perfect for beach lovers - days are long and temperatures are in the high 20s. There is the odd chance of a cyclone in the south of the island, though. The winter months (during the UK summer) are a little cooler, in the early 20s, so are ideal for hiking and exploring. If you’re planning on diving, the summer months are your best bet – the waters are warmer and (usually) calmer, and there’s more sea life around.

Visa Information
