Mauritius > Mauritius Introduction


  • Hi Mary, just a short note to thank you for organising our trip so well. It was excellent!! South Africa – or at least the parts we saw – is a stunningly beautiful country with some lovely food and wonderful wines. In all we covered some 1500 miles or so and stayed in 6 different places. It was therefore great to arrive in Mauritius for some well earned R&R on the beach. I’m afraid we didn’t venture far from the hotel (although I did enjoy the snorkelling, sea-kayaking and sailing). All the accommodation you found for us was very good and indeed Kwande, Falcons View, Auberge Clermont and Fullham Lodge were excellent. We did manage to fit in 4 game drives at Kwande and were rewarded with some great sightings of rhino – both black and white, lions, cheetahs, buffalo, elephants and a wide range of antelope. Unfortunately the leopards were as elusive as ever!! We had a very good guide, Ryan. Thanks again!

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’.
