Mauritius

Mauritius, an Indian Ocean island, is known for its luxury resorts, palm-fringed, white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, lagoons, reefs and golf courses.   It is the perfect beach getaway for both couples and families, and offers fantastic service together with a fascinating mix of Creole and Indian cultures.

The island, however, is not all about relaxing and sipping cocktails.   For those willing to explore other corners there is so much more this island has to offer …..

Head inland to the Chamarel Mountains and discover the seven-coloured earth – multi-coloured rolling dunes creating a lunar-like landscape.   Visit the Botanical Gardens and stand in awe at the enormity of the Giant Water Lilies, or awaken your five senses as you discover the making of teas, rum, vanilla and essential oils as you stroll down the exotic gardens of Bois Cheri tea plantation.   Indian temples, colonial houses, flying foxes, hiking trails, quad-biking, zip–lining and horse-riding are just some of the inland highlights and activities.

On the coast you can enjoy kite-surfing, para-sailing, deep-sea fishing and glass-bottom boat rides from which you can marvel at the beauty of the reefs right below you.

Whether it be a private villa, small boutique hotel or luxury resort, we will listen carefully to your ideas and help guide and inspire you to create that memorable holiday.
