With palm fringed, snow white beaches stretching beyond eyesight, luscious lagoons and dramatic volcanic peaks, Mauritius embodies upmarket tourism. Boasting the biggest choice of luxury accommodation of any island in the world this destination is the pinnacle of lavish opulence. Sheathes of glamorous, new hotels bragging world-class gourmet delicacies and accessorized with idyllic spas and golf courses decorate this heavenly island’s coastline. The variety of luxury retreats is something to behold: St Regis is built in the style of a colonial manor and has a Michelin star restaurant; The Oberoi is set against one of the most romantic settings on the island and exudes tranquillity; the newly opened and family-centric Long Beach takes its name from owning the biggest stretch of beach on the island. Resorts like this are typical of Mauritius, all offering their own blissful private peninsula for you to never forget.

Recently, the island has undergone a surge of innovations allowing its hotels to offer a range of exceptional activities such as professional level kite surfing, abseiling, world-class culinary lessons at the gastronomy school and even watching films at the cinema on the beach. Needless to say every hotel is different, specializing in different areas of indulgence, but as a whole the island has everything for anyone.

Mauritius’ cuisine is an exquisite fusion of Creole, Chinese, European and Indian influences celebrated world-wide which, together with the gorgeous setting, has inspired various Michelin star chefs to set up their own restaurants. Furthermore, food lovers will also enjoy the bustling, colourful food markets of fresh and flamboyant produce in Port Louis.     

Transparency echoes through the island: whether it’s the crystal like clarity of the sky and Indian Ocean, the stylishly minimalistic glass layout of the contemporary hotels, or even the genuine hospitable openness of the locals. Allow yourself to unwind and Mauritius will let the days drift into one intoxicating haze of sumptuousness.
