IMG_6953

Mark Twain once wrote “Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius.” And was he ever right!

Mauritius is an island nation in the Indian Ocean off the African continent. It is known for its beaches, wildlife, and world-renowned cuisine. Beyond its stunning beaches, turquoise lagoons, and abundant reefs, Mauritius is home to lush green mountains, cascading waterfalls, and the Black River Gorges Park. Aside from the enticing vistas and diverse terrain, there is truly something for everyone on this unique island!

Families and couples alike can relax on the beach alongside crystal clear blue-green water or indulge in the faster-paced activities the island has to offer. Highlights on the water include kite surfing, boat excursions to surrounding islands, scuba diving, snorkeling along the reefs, paddle boarding, waterskiing and more. By land enjoy playing golf, hiking to the mountain peak or through the gorge, and horseback riding.

Mauritius is a mecca for world-class luxury hotels with exceptional service. On the southwestern side of the island on Le Morne Beach resides the St. Regis, which exceeds every expectation. From the spa to the five star restaurants serving locally caught fresh fish cooked in front of you, this property ensures an experience you won’t soon forget!
