    Our opinion

    "Surrounded by crystal clear lagoons and coral reefs, the resort is a reflection of traditional Mauritian style".

    Hotel description

    Maradiva villas Resort & Spa overlooks the turquoise waters of Tamarin Bay on the west coast of the island. Designed as typical Mauritian architecture with colonial influences, the resort comprises 65 luxurious villas with private pools spread over an estate of 27 acres. The villas have been built with the emphasis on rest and relaxation in complete privacy. They are very spacious and have breathtaking views. Interiors are inspired by French Colonial, Indian, African and Arabic design, and furnishings are serene and elegant. Each villa has its own private pool and al-fresco dining areas – perfect for a romantic dinner, or just for luxuriating in splendid isolation for as long as you like throughout your holiday. A similarly romantic atmosphere and intimate dining can also be experienced at Cilantro, the speciality restaurant where guests are able to enjoy an array of Indian and Pan-Asian dishes. Alternatively guests can dine at Coast2Coast, the all-day dining restaurant where Creole, Mediterranean and international dishes are served. Evenings can be spent relaxing and enjoying a drink in the lounge bar where guests can choose from a wide selection of wines to enjoy while looking out over the ocean.

    Another excellent feature of the resort is the selection of leisure activities, which includes the Spa. As well as Ayurvedic therapies the spa also offers body treatments ranging from deep muscular massages to aromatherapy and cleansing wraps. Its luxurious treatment rooms and suites feature steam showers and outside patios. There is also yoga, a meditation pavilion and a beauty salon. The crystal-clear lagoons and coral reefs make this a perfect area for scuba diving and snorkelling. Other activities to enjoy in the ocean include deep-sea fishing and waterskiing, whilst back on land there is golf (nearby) and tennis. Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa is an excellent resort offering high standards of accommodation and facilities.
