Amazing hotels of Mauritius

I spent a week in Mauritius on a whistle stop tour of the island. We stayed in five hotels and visited 13 others.

mauritious-holiday-destinationAfter a 12 hour flight we were transferred to the Shanti Maurice to freshen up and for breakfast. The Shanti Maurice is on the south coast 40 minutes from the airport. It is a boutique hideaway with a world class spa.
Suitably refreshed we made the short journey to the Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort our home for the next two nights. We were able to enjoy the many facilities of the hotel and I can highly recommend the excellent spa. We also visited its' sister properties Heritage Awali and Heritage The Villas during our stay. Guests of all the properties can use the facilities at the C Beach Club and the golf club.mauritious-holiday-destination002

Our next stay was for one night at the Angsana Balaclava, a 5 star all suite boutique hotel. The hotel is in a great location for those who wish to venture out in the evenings being only a 15 minute drive from Port Louis and Grand Baie.
On the way to the Angsana Balaclava we visited the Paradis Hotel & Golf Club, a Beachcomber property, stopped for lunch at LUX* Le Morne and the final stop was Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa, a 'Leading Hotel and Spa of the World'.

The next day we visited the Oberoi before arriving at Trou Aux Biches Resort & Spa our hosts for that night. Set along a beautiful stretch of crisp white beach and consisting of 333 suites and villas it is one of the largest properties we stayed at. The rooms are very spacious and all of the accommodation has either a private pool or shares a larger one with a small cluster of rooms. Trou Aux Biches is perfect for families with lots of facilities, a spa and great kids club. Although it is a large property, most of the staff have been there for years and are like one big happy family.

From Trou Aux Bmauritious-holiday-destination003iches we headed north and then east visiting Le Cardinal Exclusive Resort, a boutique adult only property with just 13 suites. My favourite hotel we visited was 20 Degres Sud. It is hidden gem tucked away in an idyllic setting. The 34 rooms and suites are all individual and have different views. It is possible to take the hotel boat across to the shops, bars and restaurants in Grand Baie.mauritious-holiday-destination004

Continuing along the east coast, we visited Constance Le Prince Maurice and Long Beach, sister property to Le Touessrok before reaching The Residence where we stayed for the next two nights. Set on a kilometre long gently sloping beach and designed in a colonial plantation style, The Residence was my favourite of all the hotels we stayed in, hence the many repeat guests. The service is first rate, a private butler, attentive yet discreet they will attend to your individual needs and ensure your total relaxation. The rooms are elegant and understated.

We continued our loop of the island visiting, One & Only Le Saint Geran, LUX Belle Mare and Le Touessrok which was voted 'Best Hotel in Africa/Indian ocean 2012' at the Daily Telegraph Ultratravel awards. Our last night was at Four Seasons Mauritius at Anahita, an all villa property with the excellent facilities and service you would expect from a Four Seasons Resort. All the villas have a private plunge pool. Adjacent to but separate from the Four Seasons is Anahita the Resort which offers three to five bedroom villas and one to three bedroom suites so is another great option for families.
