Hotels in Mauritius

Mauritius must be the most iconic beach holiday destination in the world. Blessed with turquoise waters and soft white sand, it certainly won't disappoint if you're searching for an island paradise. But there's more to Mauritius than just beaches. In the south of the island, you'll find a dramatically different landscape to explore, and Mauritius has a rich colonial heritage which is apparent in the beautiful architecture which you'll see everywhere. has an enormous range of Mauritius hotels for you to choose from, from luxury five-star complexes featuring the classic huts on stilts over the water, to chic boutique hotels and simple budget accommodation which won't break the bank. Wherever you stay, with paradise outside your window, you're sure to have the holiday of a lifetime.

The changing landscapes of Mauritius

Every part of Mauritius is filled with natural beauty, and there's more variety than you might expect. The east is known for having some of the island's best beaches, including the picture-postcard Belle Mare. The south is more wild and windswept where the coastline is not protected from the sea by the coral reef. The west, meanwhile, is home to the Chamarel Coloured Earths mysterious brightly coloured sand dune. No-one is sure what makes the colours so vivid, but it's certainly spectacular when it glows at sunset. Finally, the north has the beautifully cultivated botanical gardens and yet more stunning landscapes.

History and culture

Mauritius takes its name from the Dutch Prince Maurice Van Nassau after the Dutch became the first to colonise the country, followed by the French in the 1700s. French is still widely spoken and that's not the only remnant of Mauritius's colonial past: you'll see stunning examples of French, Dutch and British colonial architecture across the entire island.

The striking Red Roof Chapel in Cap Malheureux stands at the most northerly point of the island is where General John Abercrombie landed his troops when the British first attacked the island. It's worth a visit for its holy-water basin fashioned out of a giant clamshell.

Enjoying the great outdoors

Surrounded by the sea, and with its stunning landscapes and mild tropical climate, Mauritius is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors. The island boasts eight 18-hole golf courses and five nine-hole golf courses. You can also try your hand at canyoning and horse riding. But it's the sea that's the real star in Mauritius and you shouldn't leave without enjoying a sailing, snorkelling or diving excursion in its beautiful turquoise waters.

Mauritian cuisine

One thing's for sure – you won't get bored when you're eating out in Mauritius, where the cuisine is a blend of Creole, Chinese, European and Indian influences. French cuisine is still very popular, and, naturally, fresh seafood is a staple of the island nation's cuisine. There's a wealth of restaurants to choose from in every area.

Le Café des Arts, housed in an old sugar cane factory, is now a delightful restaurant filled with Mauritian artwork and serving fresh fish and French cuisine in eclectic surroundings. For authentic creole cuisine, try Escale Creole. Set in a tropical garden in the village of Moka, it sells such traditional fare as ‘rougaille': sausages in a tangy tomato sauce.
