There are some very luxurious hotels in Mauritius, usually scattered along the coasts in the north, east and west where the best beaches are found. Most hotels are half-board, that is, the price of your room will include breakfast and dinner in one of their restaurants. These hotels also provide all sorts of activities to keep you busy so that you do not even have step beyond the hotel gates during your stay. La Pirogue hotel is a prestigious hotel just after Flic en Flac on the west coast. You can read our review on La Pirogue here.
If you need the names of a few award-winning hotels for your stay, look no further. Maradiva Villas Resort and Spa has won the highly coveted title of the World’s Leading Island Resort 2010 at the World Travel Awards. At the same ceremony, Le Meridien Hotel won the Mauritius Leading Hotel title. If you are looking for a top spa resort, try The Hilton Mauritius Resort & Spa, situated after La Pirogue Hotel on the west coast. If you are a fan of golf, consider the award-winning Telfair Golf & Spa Resort at Bel Ombre on the south coast.
You can find an equally wide range of self-catered villas and bungalows dotted around the island and usually concentrated near the best beaches such as Grand-Bay and Pereybere in the north, Flic en Flac in the west and Blue Bay in the south-east. Staying in a self-catered accommodation will provide you with a very different experience of your time in Mauritius compared to staying in one of the plush hotels above.
