Mauritius' Top Ranked hotels



Mauritius has an otherworldly essence to its wildlife that's unique in the world, let alone amongst Indian Ocean destinations. Whales, dolphins, monkeys and giant tortoises all call Mauritius home, imbibing the landscapes with a sense of prehistoric mysticism unlike any other long-haul escape. Coupled with some of the world's leading resorts, ranging from boutique hideaways to grand luxury, Mauritius sees the Old World, the New World and times before memory coalescence into an island nation even greater than the sum of its parts.

Culture

Mauritius is a blend of diverse cultures and religions. The population consists of Hindus, Creole, Chinese, Muslims and Europeans, creating a breeding-ground for wonderfully diverse traditions that span the globe.

Cuisine

Travel to every corner of the world across a Mauritian tabletop, where Creole, Chinese, Indian and Muslim traditions intermingle in refreshingly contemporary contexts. Leading chefs, such as Paul Bocuse, Trois Gros and Michel Ducasse have visited the island, participating in the creation of world-leading cuisine.

Diving

Characterised by a fringing reef a few hundred metres out to sea, Mauritius is an excellent diving location. Within the boundary reef the calm waters are ideal for novices; beyond the reef, the ocean opens up to wilder waters for more advanced divers.

Climate

Coastal temperatures in Mauritius vary between 22°C in winter and 34°C in summer. In the central part of the island, the maximum daytime temperature varies from about 19°C in August to about 26°C in February. The western and northern regions are warmer and relatively drier than the East and the South due to the island's dynamic mountainous landscapes.
