Mauritius is an island in the Indian Ocean, just off the South East coast of Africa, and forms part of the Mascarene Islands. Mauritius is known for its soft, beautiful pearl white sand and crystal clear waters, as well as glorious mountains, covered in a blanket of lush vegetation, making it a tropical paradise and the quintessential honeymoon destination. Our Mauritius Lodge Specials offer a variety of accommodation that will make your stay truly like stepping into paradise.
The beautiful city of Grand Baie is a popular destination in Mauritius and it is not difficult to see why. Pristine beaches, vibrant night life, first class facilities and shopping, as well as a true cosmopolitan vibe, makes Grand Baie the ultimate destination. The city has two gorgeous beaches are Grand Bay and La Cuvette – Grand Bay being the busier and livelier of the two, filled with fishing boats, tourists and locals, whilst La Cuvette is quieter, smaller and more tranquil. Whether you want to surf, jet ski, go sailing or wind surfing, frolic in the waves or simply just relax and lounge on the beach, both Grand Bay and La Cuvette can give you that. Grand Baie always acts as a departure point for many luxury yacht cruises which sail to neighbouring secluded islands.
Port Louis is also a popular destination and a very chic city, being the business capital of the island. Port Louis has an expansive and bustling waterfront that has various entertainment for all ages as well as world class facilities. The Mauritius Lodge Specials we have on offer are exclusive and affordable, ensuring you have a brilliant stay.

Beautiful and renowned land marks and significant islands in Mauritius include the incredible Le Morne, a UNESCO world heritage site. This peninsula was where slaves used to hide in an attempt to escape slavery. The scenery is beautiful with a diverse range of plant life and birdlife. The Grand Bassin is a huge natural lake within a volcano and has become a prominent pilgrimage site. Near the lake is a huge statue of Lord Shiva, which stands proudly at 108 ft, the second biggest Lord Shiva statue in the world (the first being in New Delhi). In the north of Mauritius are the fascinating Rochester Falls which fall down at a height of 10m, bubbling at the bottom into a clear and seemingly tranquil pool. Rochester Falls also have lava rocks which were formed after years and years of erosion. If you dare, you can jump from one of these rocks into the clear pool below for a bit of a thrill.
