The Republic of Mauritius is an island nation off the south east coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean. Discovered by the Portuguese, Mauritius was later occupied by the Dutch, French and English. These different cultures have had their own influence on the language, festivals and food, making it a truly unique destination with welcoming people who are as warm as the weather and love to party in a laid back atmosphere.
A luxury holiday in Mauritius offers the best of both worlds, natural and cultural. There are mountainous and forested areas to explore like the Black River Gorges National Park. Mauritius is also famous for some of the world's best beaches. Its wide public beaches, private luxury resort beaches, secluded coves and offshore islands and lagoons give you the opportunity to sunbathe, swim and explore white sands and cobalt blue seas.
Tourism is one of the main economies in Mauritius, creating a superb choice in accommodation ranging from luxury resorts to small boutique hotels. Mauritian cuisine is a unique fusion of Creole and Indo-Chinese food. It is typically sweet, hot and spicy, often featuring fish, papayas, aubergines, garlic and sun-ripened tomatoes.
Unlike some exotic resort destinations, Mauritius is very prosperous so it is very safe to leave the resorts and explore the colonial-era towns which offer all the cultural amenities you could need like sega, reggae and souk music and the garment markets of the Central Plateau towns Quatre Bonas and Curepipe.
