Mauritius

Luxury resorts, rainforests and stunning beaches

The stunning volcanic island of Mauritius is surrounded by more than 100 miles of palm fringed, white sandy beaches, unspoilt turquoise lagoons and beautiful coral reefs.  The island has a lush mountainous interior where you will find rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails, botanical gardens, colonial plantation houses and a wealth of wildlife.

Mauritius is home to some of the world’s most luxurious resorts which have excellent facilities including Michelin Star restaurants and World Class spas.  Whilst we would not class Mauritius as a dive destination in the league of the Maldives, Indonesia or the South Pacific, we do believe it is the perfect destination for couples or families looking for a luxury beach holiday in the Indian Ocean which combines diving with a host of other activities.

We are proud to work with the fabulous Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels, who have more than sixty years’ experience representing five star holidays in Mauritius.  Each resort in the Beachcomber collection has a slightly different personality, but all are located in idyllic settings in some of the most picturesque locations in Mauritius. Beachcomber also pride themselves on their commitment to promote responsible and sustainable tourism development with various initiatives having been introduced including the substantial decline in energy and water consumption, a ban on drinking straws being introduced in all hotels, managing waste responsibly, fostering community development, over 80% of the lighting used in the hotels being LED and the planting of over 2,000 indigenous trees on Le Morne Peninsula.
