Top Luxury Hotels in Mauritius

LUXURY HOTEL FOUR SEASONS AT ANAHITA

It is not without reason that our list is opened by the 5-star luxury hotel Four Seasons at Anahita hotel. Located on the west coast of Mauritius, it offers private villa accommodation with pools overlooking the beach, garden or ocean. Guests have at their disposal, among others a swimming pool, a water sports centre, a golf course (supposedly the best in Mauritius) and SPA. What distinguishes this hotel and why choose this place for a luxury holiday in Mauritius? Firstly, due to the rich gastronomic offer. There are four restaurants and a bar on the premises.

The Beauchamp restaurant specializes in French cuisine and seafood. It is the perfect choice for a romantic candlelit dinner with a glass of the best wine. Italian Acquapazza, whose chef is Nicolas Viene, is in our opinion the best option for breakfast. It offers a huge selection of hot dishes, such as our favourite Eggs Benedict with asparagus, freshly squeezed juices, fruit, a selection of Italian hams and cheeses, etc. For some, the fact that champagne is served for breakfast here may be convincing … The third restaurant is Bambou. It is located by the pool and is the perfect place to have lunch. We will tell you a little secret … Ask the waiter for a seafood platter, this dish is not on the menu. The restaurant buys the morning catch from local fishermen – you can be sure, everything is fresh and the neighbours from the next table will look at you with envy! You can drink delicious coffee at Il Forno, and if you get hungry, you can order lunch, served here all day long. There is also an O-bar on site, overlooking a beautiful lagoon. Connoisseurs will smoke hand-rolled cigars here and taste the best cognac.

The exclusive Four Seasons hotel also came first on our list for service.

The hotel attaches great importance to making each of its guests feel special.

The service is unobtrusive, ready to meet all the whims of its guests. If you dream of getting married during a trip to Mauritius, you couldn’t have found a better place – Four Seasons will help you organize this special day. A wedding consultant will be at your disposal, who will organize the make-up, help you choose the menu and arrange a photographer.

An additional advantage of staying at the luxurious Four Seasons hotel during your vacation in Mauritius will certainly be the fact that you can meet David Beckham here with his family, whose villa is located next to the hotel.

THE EXCLUSIVE LUX BELLE MARE HOTEL

LUX Belle Mare is a five-star hotel located on the east coast, on what we believe is the most beautiful beach in Mauritius. Of course, the sandy beach and the azure waters of the Indian Ocean are just some of the advantages of this place. The hotel has a swimming pool, wellness centre and gym. There is also a photo studio and Kids Club on site. The rich offer of sports activities also deserves attention. For the price of the stay, guests can take part in yoga classes, go kayaking, windsurfing, Stand Up Paddle, water skiing, or go on a snorkelling trip. Additionally, paid options are tennis, kitesurfing, diving, the catamaran cruise, swimming with dolphins and horse riding on the beach. Your luxury vacation in Mauritius will certainly not be that boring!

The hotel has prepared several accommodation options for its guests – spacious suites and villas are impressive. Our favourites are Honeymoon Suite, and Ocean and Beach View Suite. For those who value privacy and comfort, villas with private pools have been prepared. Choose this option if you are going on your honeymoon trip to Mauritius.

The exclusive LUX hotel is also an ideal proposition for those who like to eat well. A truly royal breakfast buffet is served in the MIXE restaurant. You can choose from grilled dishes, Indian tandoori dishes, Chinese steamed dumplings – dim sum, Japanese delicacies (we recommend miso soup) and delicious desserts, including French specialities – croissants or pain au chocolat yeast rolls. Cafe Lux will be the favourite place for coffee lovers, and beer lovers will be K-Bar, where you can try craft beers produced in the hotel’s micro-brewery. A real treat for the palate will be a visit to the Indian restaurant Amari by Vineet, whose chef is Vineet Bhatia, awarded a Michelin star. Also worth mentioning is Duck Laundy, a Chinese restaurant. You will try delicious dim sum, Peking duck and pasta here. The feast will be enhanced by a selection of Chinese teas and Asian drinks. For lunch, visit the Beach Rouge, a beachfront venue with views of the Indian Ocean. You can choose from salads, sandwiches, delicious seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes. In the evenings, the restaurant turns into a mini-club where you can dance to the music played by a DJ.

When writing about the exclusive LUX hotel, one should remember the service, which is also a huge advantage of this place. Individual approach to guests, great concern for their satisfaction and tact – this is how you can briefly describe the service that awaits you on site.

LUXURY ACCOMMODATION AT THE LA PIROGUE HOTEL

The luxurious Hotel La Pirogue is a 4-star establishment located on the west coast of the island, in the village of Flic e Flac. Its location means that when you go on vacation to Mauritius, even in winter (May – September) you can expect better weather than on the eastern coast – it is less windy and there is less rainfall (although the weather is never known for sure). Recently renovated, just a year ago, it offers accommodation in bungalows, which are decorated in a bohemian style. Certainly, the advantage of the hotel is its location by a sandy beach (covered here and there with a delicate coral) and the proximity to the town with restaurants, bars and shops.

The hotel has a swimming pool overlooking the beach, a gym and a spa. Sun Kids awaits the youngest guests. Qualified babysitters organize time for children – from entertainment on the playground, through water activities, to manual classes. Adults will also not be bored during their holidays in Mauritius. The water sports centre provides kayaks, jet skis and Stand Up Boards, and organizes fishing, diving, snorkelling and catamaran cruises. The hotel also has a recording studio with professional equipment. Golf enthusiasts will appreciate the fact that the hotel organizes a boat transfer to the Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club, which was designed by Bernhard Langer. Information on prices can be obtained directly from the hotel.

There are also two restaurants on-site at the exclusive La Pirogue hotel. Buffet breakfast and dinner are served in the Wolmar restaurant and include fresh fruit and yoghurts for the fit, Moorish delights such as smoked marlin, and Asian and European dishes. We were delighted with the fresh seafood we tasted in the Magenta restaurant and the wine we tasted in the Van Der Stel bar.

Hotel guests can also choose from two bars – Le Morne Beach Bar and The Medine Bar, where in addition to refreshing drinks, local rum or beer, you can order light snacks and European delicacies.

EXCLUSIVE HOLIDAYS AT THE CONSTANCE PLAGE HOTEL

Our list of favourite hotels must have included the luxurious five-star Constance Plage. Located on the east coast, next to a beautiful sandy beach, it is a very good choice for an exclusive holiday in Mauritius. The property offers apartment accommodation in one of several pavilions and villas with private pools on the beach. Four swimming pools, including one heated, SPA, a water sports centre, an 18-hole golf course and a kids club are just some of the attractions that await you during your vacation at the Constance Plage hotel.

Seven restaurants, two bars and a wine bar, the choice is really big! Although the hotel is not famous for its unique cuisine, you can taste dishes from all over the world. The breakfasts, which are served in the form of a buffet, are rather European. Enjoy delicious Indian, Chinese and Creole dishes at dinner. For lunch, guests have a choice of four restaurants – bars, where during the day light meals, fresh juices and alcoholic drinks are served.

THE QUINTESENCE OF LUXURY – ACCOMMODATION IN ONE & ONLY

A brand in itself that needs no introduction. The luxurious 5 * One & Only has virtually the same advantages, maybe except for one – the price. Aside from this fact, when travelling to Mauritius, be sure to consider this place. Recently renovated, beautifully situated among exotic vegetation and on the sandy beach of Belle Mare, Hotel One & Only will guarantee that your vacation in Mauritius will be unique and unforgettable. The hotel has three heated swimming pools, SPA, a fitness centre, four restaurants and three bars. In addition, there is a 9-hole mini-golf course, tennis court and bike rental.

Even the most demanding customers will be delighted with the accommodation offer. Elegant, bright and spacious apartments are available. Additionally, the hotel has a luxurious villa. We liked the apartments with sea and beach views the most and of course the villa. Over 600 m², Villa One consists of two cosy bedrooms with private bathrooms, a kitchen open to a stylish living room and dining room, and a terrace overlooking the Indian Ocean. The villa is surrounded by a lush, exotic garden, from where we take a private path to the beach. A private butler, valet and chef are available 24 hours a day.

If you decide to stay in the luxurious One & Only, you will surely be delighted with the cuisine offered by the hotel.

People who like to spend time actively have many options to choose from. Being on vacation in Mauritius, be sure to go on a diving or snorkel trip to see what the underwater world of the Indian Ocean hides. On the other hand, if you dream of getting a PADI certificate, it’s easier than using the One & Only diving centre (courses are held in English and French). In addition, you can try your hand at kitesurfing, windsurfing, Stand Up Paddle and fishing. You can rent kayaks and bicycles at the hotel. The offer of the fitness centre – Club One, also seems interesting. Group classes take place here – spinning, Zumba, kickboxing and yoga.
