One of the world's most sublime destinations

Mauritius, a nation of four islands, pretty much has it all. Pristine Indian Ocean beaches, nature reserves, historical monuments, quaint fishing villages, a wealth of culture, superb diving, sophisticated restaurants, exuberant marine and bird life, surfing, forests, deluxe hotels, and an infinite list of adventure and water sporting activities.

The nation’s eponymous island lies 2000 miles off the African coast to the east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, and is one of the most beautiful and glamourous places on the planet to visit.

It has everything. Idyllic beaches and turquoise bays brimming with coral reefs, dives sites and marine life, lush interiors filled with gorges, mountains and forests, and towns teeming with a mix of Indian, English, French, Dutch and Creole culture.

In a couple of days you could visit a Hindu temple to an old Dutch fortress, surf off Tamarim beach, tee off a championship golf course, spot birdlife in the Yemen Reserve, visit open air markets to quaint fishing villages for fresh seafood lunches, deep sea fishing, get pampered at world class spas and scuba diving a submerged volcanic crater.

This is an island that can suit any style and type of traveller.

The choice of luxury resorts to beachside boutique hotels is boundless, but we can help match you with the one that fits. Then it’s all about putting together the perfect, personalised itinerary of privately guided tours, exceptional eating out experiences, adventure activities and water sports galore.

Luxury resorts, lovely beaches, giant tortoises… Mauritius is one cool place to visit! The thousands of colourful bird species chirping in the trees and the interesting mix of Indian, African, French, Chinese and Creole cultures create a completely unique atmosphere….  A holiday there will inspire you in a lot of ways.
