Offering you the serenity you seek from a holiday on the Island.
Grand Gaube is a small fishing village lying close to Mauritius’ northernmost point, and the last point at before the coastline here becomes rocky and wild with headlands and bays stretching to the Indian Ocean. As you move closer inland from the resort, you’ll find cane fields that meet open countryside. It’s unashamedly undeveloped which adds to it’s charm and natural beauty, and the perfect choice if you really do want to get away from it all.
Luxury holidays in Grand Gaube are calming and will offer you the serenity you seek from a holiday on the Island. 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. Activities are what you would expect from the laid back Mauritian lifestyle here – fishing, scuba diving and glass-bottom boat trips are all on the cards.
Select Sovereign for your luxury holiday in Grand Gaube and we will make sure that you choose the perfect hotel of your needs and wishes. The hotel we have picked here is a new choice for couples seeing total escapism. Tandem ride in the village, duo massage on the water, all-day breakfast in room, surprise apéro and private dinner under the stars, every moment is crafted for the most unforgettable memories. Sea views from all rooms, endless panoramas to the faraway islands and turquoise lagoon, fresh and light contemporary decor blending to authentic mauritian architectural features such as stones, wood and thatched roofs, punctuated with sepia illustration of famous couple Paul et Virginie… discover the perfect cocoon to host an idyllic holiday, just for two.

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.
