Luxury Bel Ombre Holidays

Forests and waterfalls

Bel Ombre

Nestled in the foothills of the Plaine Champagne Mountain (yes, it’s just as grand as it sounds) on Mauritius’ south coast, this area is all about spectacular scenery and gorgeous resorts. The lush landscape is made up of sugar plantations, tumbling waterfalls and tropical forests filled with chattering local wildlife. Expect breathtaking Indian Ocean views everywhere you go, from the golf courses to the nature trails, and definitely save some time for the beaches – they’re white-sand stunners with backdrops of swaying palm trees.

Louise Burling

Frederica Nature Reserve sits just behind Helitage Le Telfair and Heritage Awali hotels. Explore the wild landscape, waterfalls and banana plantations on foot, by bike or on a 4x4 safari.

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

Visas are not required for Mauritius. You will receive a stamp in your passport valid for 60 days.


Tipping in Mauritius is appreciated, but not expected. In restaurants you can leave the small change or round the bill up if you received excellent service. Ensure you give your tip directly to the person whom you wish to receive it.
