Mauritius > Mauritius Introduction


  • Hi Michele, we both wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put into making our honeymoon so special with the itinerary that you put together. We had an amazing experience in Kenya. Ol Seki had an amazing setting on the side of the hill and it was unbelievable and very strange sitting there with all the wildlife around. We also had champagne in the tent for the honeymoon which was nice. Onto Mauritius and The Maritim was a lovely hotel overlooking the beach and a small bay. Again honeymoon specials were in the room which was nice. The food on the whole was pretty good and staff helpful. We did two trips – one visiting a tea plantation, grand bassin and the waterfalls in the national park. The second was in a catamaran in the lagoon on the east of the island, seeing waterfalls, snorkelling in the beautiful clear water with plenty of rum punch and beer which was nice. The hotel and the island were very nice with plenty to do but having such wonderful time at Ol Seki it had a huge amount to live up to but still very enjoyable. So as you have probably guessed we had a fantastic trip that we shall remember for a very long time. We are both very grateful to you for all your advice and work and are really pleased you advised us to go to Kenya, a fascinating country and it felt like everyone we came across couldn’t do enough to help you. Once again thank you for your efforts in putting this together and putting up with my silly questions.

Introduction to the resort island of Mauritius

Mauritius is a single ‘volcanic’ island located in the heart of the Indian Ocean to the east of northern Madagascar and to the south of The Seychelles. It is a classic island destination with one major airport, a good network of roads and a large number of beach resorts and hotels dotted around the coastline and clustered around accessible beaches. No hotel is more than about 1h15 minutes from the airport.

The central part of the island is mountainous and whilst some sight-seeing excursions are possible, the island is really known as a classic beach resort destination. Accommodation is generally of high standard, with plenty of five star options and service levels to match.

As well as offering beautiful beaches, Mauritius has several exceptional golf courses and most resort hotels offer a wide range of watersports and spa facilities. Deep-sea fishing, scuba diving and snorkelling are all possible, whilst the south-west of the island is major destination for kite-surfing and wind-surfing.

Mauritius is the perfect beach destination if you are looking for sophistication, great service, wide ranging hotel facilities and watersports. Families with children will find Mauritius offers a great balance between an ‘exotic island paradise’ and a sophisticated level of service and facilities. However, exclusivity is hard to come by as properties tend to be large and ‘resort style’, and beaches are rarely ‘empty’.
