Mauritius' Top Ranked hotels
In the words of Mark Twain, “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven, and that heaven was copied after Mauritius”, see for yourself the sights that inspired the words as you traverse through the ‘seven coloured earth’ awaiting you at Chamarel and witness the spectacular waterfall that lies ahead. Dive in to the mountainous interiors and spectacular waterfalls that form the backdrop of your island adventures and tranquil beach days. Lounge in a paradise that is home to giant tortoises and has saved more species of bird from extinction than any of the country in the world. Revel in the sapphire blue waters that house a magnificently biodiverse marine environment with a whole host of dolphins, wales and sharks making an appearance before spreading out on the famed white sand beaches and luxurious resorts that line the coasts.

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.
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.
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.
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.
