A guide to Best Hotels in Mauritius
When it comes to hotels, Mauritius isn’t playing around. The accommodation here is big, beautiful and beachy, and many have seen recent renovations, so they’ve got that shiny, new feel to them. Stars mean nothing to this luxurious collection – here, everyone’s a winner.
Even the giant, lagoon-style pool at this hotel has views of the sea. Tucked alongside Le Morne Beach, Riu Creole Hotel has the sea just at its feet and waves of trees at its back. Your days are taken care of here with watersports down at the beach including windsurfing, snorkelling and kayaking, while night-time is reserved for a disco and karaoke.
The TUI Sensimar Lagoon gets its name from two sources – the Anse La Raie lagoon, on which it’s perched, and its massive lagoon pool. There are three restaurants to choose from, plus local street food and a barbecue lunch. Watersports are alive and well too, with catamaran sailing, a diving centre and windsurfing on offer. Nights see live music and dancing along with four bars, but it’s the rooms here that really shine – some dial the luxury factor to all new heights with terraces featuring private hot tubs.
The garden-surrounded Lux Tamassa is full of unexpected surprises like messages in a bottle scattered around for you to find and a phone booth for free calls home. Basically every watersport you’ve ever heard of is on offer here, not to mention a deluxe spa and sauna. Located along the beachfront, the hotel features three pools and a buffet restaurant sporting worldly cuisine, plus a beach bar, live entertainment and a nightclub.
