    Luxury hotel holidays to Mauritius, tailor-made

    Mauritius is a luxury holiday destination par excellence, with a superb concentration of outstanding hotels offering the highest possible standards of comfort and service.
    The island of Mauritius geographically is very attractive with a lush, green interior with a sugar cane fields alongside jagged mountain peaks. Along the coastline there are miles of soft white sand beaches lapped by calm, translucent, turquoise water, protected by a reef almost entirely around the whole island. The beaches of Mauritius are often the highlight of a luxury holiday here, fringed by casuarinas or coconut palms which sway against the deep blue of the sky and the turquoise of the sea. Poinsettia and bougainvillaea line the roads and hug the buildings. It is the people of Mauritius that make this island so very special and unique, living in a harmony that welcomes and pleases visitors. There is a fascinating mix of Indian, African, Chinese and European with religions being Hindu and Islam, Buddhist and Christian. This attractive mix of flavours is apparent in the local architecture and cuisine which makes a rich use of the local fruits and spices. Mauritius is a paradise of sea and sand with charming people, offering a perfect luxury holiday destination.

    Getting out and about in Mauritius

    The roads on Mauritius are very good. Driving is on the left. Signposts are clear. We can organise hire-cars for you in advance or the hotels can do it during your stay. If you prefer the idea of a private excursion, we can also arrange this for you in advance of your arrival.

    Travel arrangements

    How you get there: British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Air Mauritius fly from from London to Mauritius. The flight time is about 12 hours but the flights are not all daily. Emirates flies from London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow to Mauritius daily with a change of aircraft in Dubai. The connecting times are very good and the prices we offer you allow for a stopover in Dubai, making Mauritius and Dubai an excellent two centre holiday option. Once on Mauritius, most hotels are about 1 hour and 10 minutes from the airport by car. If you want a helicopter transfer this can be arranged on request and then the flying time is only between 10 and 15 minutes.
