About Mauritius

Mauritius

Mauritius is the one island on earth that is often referred to as heaven, and there is probably no better word to describe it. Located remotely within the mystical turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, the island which has a territory of only 2040 square kilometres is a sun, sea and sand lover’s dreamland. With stretches of magnificent white sandy beaches, turquoise blue lagoons and breathtaking mountains, you will feel as if you have stepped straight into the world of a picture perfect postcard.

The island was officially discovered and documented by the Portuguese at the beginning of the 16th century and was then occupied by the Dutch, the French and the British successively. Mauritius achieved independence in 1968 and now has a population of 1.3million, most of whom are of African, Indian and Chinese descent, with a small European community as well. The mix of cultures, faiths and races has made Mauritius a very exciting, diverse and yet peaceful place to be, where there is always something new happening and something even more exciting to be discovered.

Mauritius is one of the most developed of the Mascarene Islands located in the south west Indian Ocean, and is developing rapidly even more so year after year. Its 330 kilometre coastline of sandy beaches is almost entirely surrounded by one of the largest unbroken coral reefs in the world, playing home to more than one thousand species of fish. This certainly magnifies the majesty of the island and makes underwater activities even more magical.

Often, the traditional sounds of Sega music, the local folklore, can be heard far and wide, inspiring dancing, singing and laughing on the beach well into the night. Traditional Mauritian cuisine is just out of this world with its fusion of Chinese, Indian and creole food, resulting in dishes which are full of rich flavour and colour leaving you wanting more.

We are proud to have five resorts on this paradise island, each one completely unique, yet just as marvellous as the next.
