Luxury holidays in Mauritius

Small in landmass, but mighty in history, Mauritius has been home to everyone from Dutch seafarers to Chinese merchants, and Arab spice traders to British colonialists. As a result, the country is a fascinating cultural catch-all, where you'll find French haute cuisine next to Indian curries, and where Diwali, Eid and Christmas are celebrated with equal gusto. It's a beauty too; the island drips with the sort of greenery you’d expect of somewhere lying just north of the Tropic of Capricorn, and its white-sand beaches and azure waters, which swell over the coral reefs that completely encircle the island, have long attracted the newly wedded and heavy-walleted.

Destinations in Mauritius

  • When Mark Twain visited Mauritius in 1896, he came away saying that ‘God first made Mauritius, and from it He created Paradise’. He wasn't wrong.
