The quality and style of accommodation plays a big part in one's overall holiday experience and no more so than on a tropical island. One can style and decorate a typical hotel room all you want, but the space remain the same, the features man-made, you are boxed in and privacy only goes as far as the door. If you truly want to get in touch with the island atmosphere, immerse your self in a state of total bliss and need your own outdoor space, then consider booking one of our hotels in Mauritius with a private pool. It is the ultimate indulgence for a romantic honeymoon and for families with kids nothing beats two or three bedroom villa accommodation with a pool set in your own tropical garden.

Away from the shore extinct volcanoes, emerald lagoons, waterfalls, exotic wildlife and charming villages combine to create a paradisaical setting.

We bet the idea of riding a horse into the sunset on an all but deserted beach did not cross your mind when you think of a holiday in Mauritius. It is a liberating and romantic experience and highly recommended. To get a different angle of your location, book a boat cruise, sail the turquoise lagoons and visit nearby islands and marine nature reserves.
Spectacular scenery lay hidden in the mountain valleys and there is no better way of exploring them than on an organized hiking tour. Every mountain peak you ascend offers a different photo opportunity and along the way you can test your nerves zip-lining high above the earth.
