Without a doubt, Mauritius is a Paradise Island. As famed writer Mark Twain puts it, “God created Mauritius and then inspired it to create paradise.” With sunny weather even in winter, its turquoise water, its endless white beaches and its valiant multicultural population, Mauritius is definitely worth a visit.

Choosing a villa as a holiday accommodation in Mauritius

One of the first questions we ask ourselves before traveling is what kind of accommodation would be best for this destination. In terms of accommodation, the island is a destination par excellence. Prestigious hotels added to the legendary Mauritian hospitality promises a peaceful vacation.

However, hotels represent only a fraction of the housing available in Mauritius. For the adventurous for example, a beachfront bungalow, apartment or studio would be best. For those who prefer privacy, calm or for family trips, we recommend villas where you can easily adjust according to your length of stay and this solution usually costs less than the big hotels.

Exclusive Villas can help you find the perfect holiday villas in Mauritius.
