Beach Mauritius

Mauritius is one of the favourite destinations for holidays! This summer, if you are wondering what to do during you holidays, well rest assured, we got some advice for you. For a complete holiday full of adventure and discoveries, we have made a top 10 of the must-dos on this wonderful island of the Indian-Ocean. We hope you have fun!

1. Ile aux Cerfs

Ile aux Cerfs is an outer island you should not miss visiting while being in Mauritius. It is an uninhabited island located east of Mauritius. Being both a tourist spot and also a place where Mauritians love to go for a day on weekends for a picnic with family, you will surely enjoy a nice moment there.

To get there, you just need take a boat near Trou d’Eau Douce. There are several formulas “excursion inclusive” but for more authenticity and for complete freedom, we recommend you take the water taxi from Trou d’Eau Douce which leaves every 20 minutes and takes you there in about ten minutes. Be careful not to lose your ticket back.

Once there, you can enjoy the beautiful beach and turquoise waters that lie ahead. You can also relax in the shade of casuarinas if it’s too hot or walk along the beach on the other side of the island where the sea is rough. If you are observant, you will probably encounter large starfish back by the waves. Also, if you are fan of extreme activities like parasailing, you can try them with some operators present on the island.

4. Port Louis and its market

Port Louis, capital of Mauritius! Not visiting this small capital would be a shame because it is a city that deserves to be visited at least for its large market and various historical spots. Mingle with the population, and taste the street food (chilies cakes, samosas, Dholl puree, boulettes) and observe the daily life of Mauritians. Visit the market to discover the beautiful and succulent tropical fruits and vegetables but also the bazaar part where you will find clothing, souvenirs, etc. Know that as a tourist, you will have been “spotted”, and everyone will want to sell stuffs to you. This can be disturbing but a simple “no thank you” will end any sequence. For the price, it’s the same, know that there the price for the “tourist” and the “local” price. Negotiate! Do not hesitate a second. One last thing you should not miss is the “Alouda”, its pure bliss!

Dream Beaches

Dream Beaches Seychelles

A holiday at Seychelles is sure to fill your travel kitty to the brim with fond memories. Seychelles, situated to the north east of Madagascar, close to the coast of Africa, in the midst of the ocean. There are numerous beaches which you can visit while on a holiday to Seychelles. Here we have compiled a list of the best eight beaches which are indeed worth visiting.

Of course, when we know that there are around 100 pieces of land where we can put our feet in the water, we say that the results must be beautiful for the eyes … And it’s true! Seychelles is particularly deemed to offer the best beaches you will find on earth. I must admit that each of these beaches will make you dream.

Anse source d’argent consists of numerous tiny crescent pink sand beaches. Large granite boulders separate these beaches from one another. The unique shapes of these boulders are a marvel by themselves since these curves were the created when the weather and time took a toll on these rocks. A reef stands protecting the beach which is ideal for your kids. The water is not too rough and it is safe for children to play in it. You can enjoy snorkeling at the reef which can also be used to relax and sun bathe.

Anse Lazio, reputed to be the most beautiful beach of the world will stun you. The experience of swimming and diving in the crystal clear waters of this divine beach is not soon forgotten and after an equally unforgettable barbecue in this magical setting, you will have enough time to burn this precise moment in your memory before you bring at home the final day.

Have fun in the Seychelles!

Mauritius is where dreams come to be fulfilled. Whether you are one of those people who had never heard of the place before wanting a tropical island holiday or those who have researched everything about Mauritius since ages and are finally able to make the plan come to fruition, this guide will hopefully be of some help when you consider all the necessary factors about renting a villa in Mauritius to spice up your holidays somewhat with a nice villa near the sea within walking distance. This does rather make everything seem quite paradisiacal actually! Renting a villa for your holidays instead of a hotel in Mauritius will give your holidays a more homey appeal.

When you are holidaying, budgets are important as well. While definitely less costly than for example, the Seychelles or the Maldives, if you are not careful about how you are spending and on what, holidaying in Mauritius also can rack up astounding bills. If money is a concern for you then you should really think about renting a villa instead of booking a hotel for the duration of your holidays here. It may of course seem extravagant but when you think about it, renting a villa will actually end up costing way less in the long run. Buying a villa is most definitely possible but I hardly think that is on the cards given how the price tends to range in millions!

Athena4

Since you will be renting, you should be aware that while hotels accept booking on a day to day basis, most villas are rented per week. There are some exceptions such as weekends or just weekdays but mostly, it’s going to be at least a week. This is convenient for you as well as it makes billing easier and comparison more convenient before you book. There are certain websites with photos of the villas to help you decide on which you will choose. Different villas for different purposes such as family villas which are equipped with all the amenities an average family might require as well as other specifics that is requested when contacting the owner or the agency that takes care of these things. Honeymoon villas tend to be on the pricier range what with accessories and decorations to fit the mood and occasion as well as inside bars and big televisions and other things like that.

mauritius-villa-athena-photo

If you are highly concerned about not exceeding your set budget, then a hotel might not be your best choice and you will be paying for the rooms, service, amenities as well as any included parts of the package such a buffet dinners or courtesy breakfasts. A self catering villa will give you the opportunity to cut down on these costs and and be more economical. Unlike in Seychelles, everything is relatively cheap in Mauritius. You can buy veggies and poultry from nearby shops or even visit a supermarket while you are at it- never refuse a new adventure as they say! Supermarkets are cosy enough and have just the required stuff for you to maintain your independent holiday in style. The self catering villas are usually equipped with all necessary appliances in the kitchen and the owners will, by politeness, often stock up your cupboards and fridge before your arrival for a few days at least. Enough time for  you to get your bearings and start exploring on your own. Food is not as exotic as you might expect since Mauritian cuisine derives a lot from European, Indian, African and Chinese cuisines. While some may seem new to you, most food items will be very familiar. In case of confusion, reading the instructions will help you out. Packages are not mysterious unless you are shopping in one of the traditional Chinese shops and given the fact that every Mauritian speaks at least two languages, the instructions are either in English or French or even both most of the times. Cooking for yourself will cost you much less than depending on restaurants on a daily basis for every meal. And if you are cooking in larger batches, that is for more than one person at a time or just freezing a few portions for later consumption, this method will be a great means of saving money for you to be able to spend more on exciting activities such as parasailing in Mauritius.

Other factors to consider when looking for your perfect villa is the location evidently. From the North to the South, there are very many villas around all catering to a different niche so to speak of the market. For example, if you want a touristy place all while keeping a semblance of tranquility, then you should probably rent somewhere on the North coast. There is quite a tourist community with many villas and hotels occupying a relatively calm area. The place has a scenic beauty which will definitely drag you outside to simply admire the view in awe. You are likely to be able to rent a villa which if not at least 5 minutes from the beach then with a great overview of it from a window at your new villa at a not very expensive price. There is also many restaurants in the northern area of the island especially in Grand Baie and the nightlife is more than satisfactory as well as compared to other places on the island. The beaches make for a great swim during the day and the surroundings are very family friendly. You will be able to grab a quick lunch at one of the many snack shacks on the beach and buy ice cream or other treats for children if any!

mauritius-villa-oasis-3bedrooms

As for the South, this is where you go for a great holiday which doesn’t include swimming! The sea is considerably rough down there and not appropriate for swimming on most days. However, the place compensates with its marvelous views. The sea seems infinite at times, with an unending hue of colours ranging from turquoise to vermillion at the same time. The villas are luxurious and modern in design and aim at satisfying your needs with the highest level of comfort. It is more convenient to stay in the South also if you are intrigued by the extreme activities in Mauritius. Zip lining among others will be more accessible from the south and will save you money when you are renting a car for your travels both on the costs and on fuel.

Hotels in Mauritius

Haven’t planned your next holidays yet? Why not visit Mauritius for your next vacation? Between white sandy beaches and stunning scenery, you will discover a rich cultural heritage of many influences. One thing is certain: it is impossible to be bored during a stay on Mauritius. But when planning holidays, the main question is where to stay? And we are here to help you choose the best hotel according to your needs and desires.

Hotel Categories

First of all, to choose your hotel you need to choose according to how you are travelling! Is it with your family or lover or are you going solo? Most hotels are adapted to a specific sort of resident – even though Mauritius remains a destination for all!

Hotels for Family Holidays in Mauritius

What are the elements governing the choice of a hotel adapted to family life? The variety of sports activities, a true child or teen club, a freedom given to young people residing in the resort. All this should be accommodated safely and in a way that does not disturb others residents.

Rooms should be adapted to welcome families. Our first recommendation would be Sun Resort whose concept “Sun Kids Club” is very successful and has been working for years and the Beachcomber group hotels with their renowned club “Bob Marlin”. Both services offer varied sports facilities, relaxed atmosphere, beautiful beach bungalows and included connecting rooms that allow for easy accommodation of families.

Hotels for Romance in Mauritius

Mauritius being one of the best Honeymoon destination, offers great accommodation to couples. Since, in most cases, this is the first trip to Mauritius… We all want it to be memorable! We personally recommend either Lux Le Morne or Villa Caroline Hotel. Lux Le Morne full of charm is leaning against the rock of Morne Brabamt opposite a sublime lagoon. Villa Caroline on the other hand, facing the sunset on the west coast facing Flic En Flac beach.

The still warm, elegantly decorated rooms, the beauty of the evening, dinner by torchlight, feet in the sand, arranged just for you, the many little touches offered by those hotels for newlyweds make by far the best solution for a honeymoon or a romantic getaway successful in Mauritius.

Luxury Hotel in Mauritius

The Mauritian hotel is generally excellent and often cited as an example among professionals in the hospitality industry. But the Deluxe hotel is yet another difficult level to achieve especially for leisure resorts. Luxury takes effect in aspects that go far beyond the variety of buffets offered or the size flat screens in the rooms.

Every single moment, discretion, peace, recognition and personalization, excellence and distinction of the service, the quality of food, responsiveness … all of this counts when it comes to luxury. In short, in this game, the title contenders for luxury hotel in Mauritius are not in excess. We can count five: The Royal Palm, The St. Geran, The St. Regis, Le Prince Maurice and Le Touessrok.

Activity Centered Hotels in Mauritius

Some people travel to practice their favourite activities in unusual scenery. Mauritius is indeed and island that allows for the practice of various activities like diving, golf, hiking, quad biking and even tennis.

Most hotels will direct you towards other agents for activities such as diving, hiking or quad biking – yet, when it comes to sports- golf, tennis – Mauritian hotels are well equipped and proposes those activities in the vicinity of their hotels.

Hotels to play golf in Mauritius

There are 8 hotels namely Le Paradis, Dinarobin, Heritage Awali, Heritage Le Telfair, Le Touessrok, Le Prince Maurice, Belle Mare and St. Geran with private golf course, accessible to clients. To decide between them, you will certainly want to know more about the quality of the course, ease of access, services around the golf practice (clubhouse, departures management, coaches, etc …), then the quality of the hotel itself. Here are our bests for you golf lovers:

– For outstanding ease of access to the course, for the magnificent and unparalleled views, for the atmosphere of regulars and the beautiful Morne Lagoon: we would advise you to go to Le Paradis – the experience will be memorable.

– For its two 18-hole courses, free of charge for hotel guests, for the exceptional quality of its service, its restoration, and being one of the finest luxury hotels in the world: Le Prince Maurice is no doubt the choice to remember for very demanding golfers- you’ll be loving it.

Hotel in to practice Tennis Mauritius

Most resorts have tennis courts. But which ones have real momentum around this sport? Undoubtedly Le Paradis hotel wins here too since the hotel had been the hosts of many champions for years and champions not only for their own training, but also to exchange some services with customers of hotel. With six tennis courts, the Tennis Clinic and its top-level monitors, Le Paradis Hotel is the best hotel in Mauritius to practice tennis.

Hotel to practice Diving in Mauritius

To practice recreational diving comfortably on vacation, two elements are predominant: the nearby diving spots, to avoid a three-hour boat ride, and the presence of an integrated Diving Centre at the hotel so that waking up at 7:00 in the morning is not too painful

The must go hotel if you want to visit incredible spot and have a great diving center remains Le Canonnier! Its diving center with PADI certification and CMAS is exemplary and its location between Trou aux Biches and Grand Baie is ideal for diving. The hotel is a 4-star one and is part of the Beachcomber chain. Its services are particularly popular especially for families – thanks to its excellent Kids club (ideal when you go diving …) and family-friendly rooms. The reasonable price of the hotel makes it an excellent choice for those wishing to combine service quality and active diving program in Mauritius.

We hope that this article was helpful in helping you to choose your hotel for your next vacation!

When to visit Mauritius?

The peak season hovers as from November and until January. While some prefer Christmas, others prefer the quieter travel season, from May until September. Why is that so? Prices of villas in Mauritius double in high season and will be much cheaper between May and September. Yet the same luxury, the same standard is maintained.

The low season occurs during winter in Mauritius. The sun is of course still present but some regions such as Poste Lafayette or Belle Mare may be particularly exposed to the wind. This does not prevent relaxing or sunbathing, around the pool or in front of the lagoon. Special offers can also be applied in low season.

If you want to enjoy the summer and experience the festive atmosphere of the island, traveling during the high season, especially in December, is the best time. You are sure to enjoy late night shopping as well as crazy deals. Hotels are particularly preferred during this period because they allow to enjoy the special activities proposed.

Staying in a hotel in Mauritius!

Whatever your interest or desire, you will certainly find a hotel that suits you.

Recently, the industry of holiday accommodation in Mauritius has changed dramatically. Mauritius has evolved from a secret island paradise into a popular holiday destination.

This includes in particular a selection of cheap hotels to top-notch luxury hotels – some of which are considered the best in the world. Visitors can also choose unique boutique hotels or business hotels depending on the purpose of their visit to the island.

What differentiates luxury villas?

Such as hotels, there are 3-5-star villas. If the 3-star villas offer a touch of luxury but are located in an isolated area or offers simple but neat decoration, the 4 or 5 stars villas guarantee complete luxury. They are mostly located by the sea, with 3 bedrooms, very nicely decorated, with antique or modern furniture. Villas offer an incomparable charm, with a swimming pool on with view over the ocean.

The luxury of a turquoise lagoon every day … everyone wants to afford it … It is possible for you at competitive prices in Mauritius. Everyone can stay in a villa if he wants to.

A real treat for the palate! Staying in a villa is simply the best way to spend holidays: a true wellness is offered during vacation time.

Getting closer to Nature!

Staying in a lodge offers an alternative and interesting experience. Holiday lodges tend to be smaller than the villas and are often surrounded by a beautiful environment. If you want to be surrounded by lush nature and be charmed by the beautiful views and lulling noise all day and night, do not look any further, a vacation lodge remains the best choice to satisfy your curiosity.

You can even find an ‘eco-lodge’ (Ecologic hut), or experience of the tent (if that’s what you want) that will bring you even closer to nature- If you opt for the tent, do try the various beaches of the island, you will find it an enriching experience.

Rent a Car in Mauritius

Renting a car in Mauritius during your holidays is the best way to fully discover the island. Moreover, in your rented car you will have the opportunity to plan your days and travel at your own pace. To rent a car in Mauritius, one must possess a driving license for over a year and have a minimum age of 21 years. On-site rental agencies offer rentals for about 50/60 Euros per day. In any case, be ready to change your driving habits if you decide to rent a car or a scooter. Indeed driving in the islands has nothing to do with the policies that you know because the dangers are not the same.

Also, you should note that in Mauritius you should drive on the left. Remain cautious about roundabouts and parking. Watch out for buses that drive fast. Also be very careful. When it comes to bicycles and pedestrians, there is no bike lane or sidewalk in Mauritius- and if you are driving at night, do not be surprised to see someone pop up in front of you in dark clothes.

We hope you enjoy nice holidays on the island and have the chance to enjoy the various activities and visit the many places of interest the island proposes.
