Mauritius - Pearl of the Indian Ocean - is located a mere 4 hour flight from South Africa. The magical island of Mauritius will enchant you, uplift your soul and will remain engraved in your memory forever.
We have special Mauritius holiday packages to suit your every need. The warm climate and green-blue sea lapping at the white sandy shoreline within the protective belt of coral reef make for a tropical paradise with equally friendly people whose hospitality is legendary. A Mauritius Holiday is a perfect holiday!
Mauritius is a destination to be enjoyed year round. The seasons can be divided broadly into a hot, wet season, lasting from December to April, and a pleasantly cool, dry season from May to November.
The cyclone season usually occurs between January and March. This brings a lot of rain to the region and if you wish to visit the island during this period be prepared to spend a few days indoors during extra heavy rains.
Whether you are looking for a idyllic and romantic escape or a fun-filled family holiday, there are hotels and resorts to cater for all your needs.
We offer a range of accommodation ranging from the budget-friendly 3-star hotels right up to your ultra-luxurious 5-star resorts. The island is a popular honeymoon destination and all the resorts offer special packages to make guests honeymooning on the island feel that extra bit special.
Water sports and fishing
The coastline of Mauritius is almost entirely fringed by coral reefs and consequently the coastal waters mainly lie in calm lagoons. Here guests can enjoy a wide variety of different water sports - snorkelling, peddle boats, sailing and water-skiing. Most resorts have their own activities centre and professionally-run dive centres. Mauritius is also also a paradise for deep-sea fishing and fishing boats can be hires from almost all hotels.
What could be better than holidaying on an idyllic island and getting to improve on your golf skills at the same time? Hotels such as Constance Belle Mare Plage and Heritage Golf & Spa Resort offer guests excellent championship 18-hole courses and there is also the option to visit one of the other courses on the island.
The island’s reputation as a shopping paradise is enhanced by the diversity and quality of shopping opportunities. There are a number of duty-free stores where one can purchase jewellery, model ships, watches and perfume and the many markets offer perfect opportunities to buy knitwear, textiles, beadwork and basketwork. Don't forget to purchase some vanilla tea and rum!
Visitors to the island can choose from a variety of different land and sea excursions. Visit Grand Bay and Centre du Flacq where shopping is a real treat. There is also the Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens, one of the most visited attractions in Mauritius, where you can view the famous giant Victorian Amazonica water lilies and the coloured earths of Chamarel in the south are not to be missed! Day tours allow visitors to learn about the rich history as well as partake in adventure sports like quadbiking at Valriche.
What could be more romantic than exchanging vows on a white sandy beach, soothing waves gently lapping at your feet and palm trees gently swaying in the background?
