Luxury Beach Holidays in Mauritius

Although we’re safari lovers through and through, we can appreciate a beautiful beach as much as the next person, and Mauritius is blessed with some ravishing ones.  This gorgeous tropical island is covered with lush vegetation and palm trees, and fringed by mile upon mile of powdery beach. It’s just a four hour flight from Johannesburg, making a beach holiday in Mauritius the perfect partner for a safari in Madikwe or the Sabi Sands.

There are very small number of tiny boutique hotels on Mauritius, but the island is best known for its fantastic resort hotels.  The luxury hotels which line the beaches set the standard for service in the Indian Ocean- this is the place to come for some serious R and R and there’s something to suit every taste, whether you’re a water-baby or a spa lover, honeymooners or families in need of a serious break.

It’s important that you know Mauritius is seasonal (we’ll recommend different resorts and different parts of the island depending on the time of year), but the best way is just to ask and we’ll point you in the right direction.
