Many people ask us this question: What is the best hotel in Mauritius? The “best” is a variable concept that must necessarily be complemented by an element. So, we will not be talking here about the best hotel in the absolute, but the best depending on what is important to you.

Le Paradis and Prince Maurice: The best hotel for golfing


There are eight hotels with private golf courses available to guests: Paradis Hotel & Golf Club, Dinarobin, Heritage Awali Hotel, Telfair, Shangri-La’s Touessrok, Constance Prince Maurice, Constance Belle Mare And the Saint-Geran.

To differentiate between them, we highlight the quality of the courses, the ease of access, the services around the golf practice (club house, management of departures, teachers, etc.), then the quality of the hotel itself, even without taking into account the price.

We have not been able to agree on only one, we give you two:

For the exceptional ease of access, for the ease of the route, for the magnificent views, for the atmosphere of regulars and the superb lagoon of Morne: Paradis Hotel & Golf Club.

For its two 18-hole courses, including a superb links, accessible free of charge for hotel guests, for the exceptional quality of its service, its restaurant, one of the most beautiful prestigious hotels in the world: Le Prince Maurice is without any doubt the choice to retain for very demanding golfers.

Le Paradis: The best place to play tennis


Most resorts have tennis courts. But who have a real dynamic around this sport?

Undoubtedly this is by far the Paradis Hotel & Golf Club which for years has welcomed many champions and champions not only for their own training but also to exchange balls with hotel guests. With its six tennis courts, tennis clinic and top level instructors, Le Paradis is the best hotel on the island for tennis.

Le Canonnier: The best hotel in Mauritius for scuba diving

To enjoy a leisurely dive comfortably on holiday, two elements are paramount: the proximity of the diving spots to avoid three hours of boat at each exit, as well as the presence of a Diving Center integrated to the hotel so that the Appointments of 7am are not too painful.

According to this specification, there are at least a dozen establishments! The selection will therefore be made on the quality of the diving center, the quality of the hotel and the immediate proximity of the diving sites which are the most numerous in the North West of the island.

An establishment clearly stands out: Le Canonnier. Its center the Canonnier Dive Center accredited PADI and CMAS is exemplary and its situation on the Pointe aux Canonniers between Trou aux Biches and Grand Bay is ideal to go diving. Hotel Le Canonnier is a 4-star part of the Beachcomber chain. Its services are particularly appreciated by families especially thanks to its excellent Kids Club (ideal when you leave to dive …) and to rooms adapted to family needs. Its reasonable price in this category makes it an excellent choice for anyone who wants to combine quality services and active diving program in Mauritius.

What are the factors determining the choice of a family hotel: the diversity of sports activities, a real kids or teens club, a freedom left to the young to frolic in the spaces of the resort without risk and without hindering other Residents, rooms suitable for families?

In line with these specifications, two hotel chains have positioned themselves: Sun Resort, with its very successful Sun Kids Club concept, and the Beachcomber hotels with their renowned club – “Bob Marlin”. At Sun, we retain the Hotel La Pirogue Resort & Spa without hesitation: the beauty of the Park, the varied sports facilities, the relaxing atmosphere, the superb beach and the standard bungalows, the connecting rooms of which make it easy to accommodate families.

Royal Palm: The luxury hotel in Mauritius

The Mauritian hotel industry is generally excellent and often cited as an example among professionals of the industry hotel. But the luxury hotel is still another level very difficult to reach especially for leisure resorts, even if they are 5 stars.

Luxury has indeed aspects that go well beyond the variety of buffets or the size of the flat screens in the rooms. The attentions of every moment, discretion, calm, recognition and personalization, excellence and distinction of service, quality of food, responsiveness … In short, at this game, the pretenders to the title of best hotel Of Mauritius are no longer numerous.
