The second stop on the Mauritius Tea Route
Luxury holidays in Bois Cheri transport you to a tranquil haven on the south coast of Mauritius. Enter a small but perfectly formed village oozing natural beauty accompanied by a few restaurants and hotels, offering the perfect destination for couples and solos looking to get away from it all. It is also famous for being home to the largest and oldest tea plantation on the island.
The Bois Cheri Company dates back to the 19th century, and in addition to being the biggest producer of tea on the island, is also home to a gourmet restaurant, breath taking views and a fascinating insight into Mauritian culture. Visitors can enjoy a guided tour of the tea factory, and visit the tea plantation and museum which are surrounded by spectacular nature. Taste fresh brews in the plantation view chalet before purchasing a souvenir in the boutique, and if hunger strikes then complete your experience with an upmarket lunch at the in house restaurant overlooking the river and plantation.
Luxury holidays in Bois Cheri offer the best of both worlds; effortlessly combining mesmerising surroundings, excellent cuisine and warm Mauritian hospitality. Escape the busy routines of daily life as you indulge in total rest and relaxation. Admire the stunning nature and wildlife at the neighbouring Black River Gorges National Park where you can stroll along kilometres of woodland trail, witness striking waterfalls and meet the local macaque monkeys, fruit bats, echo parakeets and Mauritius kestrels.

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.
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.
