MAURITIUS: MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY BEACH

Mauritius is primarily known as a post-safari beach getaway for visitors to South Africa but it can also be paired with Dubai or Madagascar and could even be a wonderful stand-alone holiday destination. But what does Mauritius have to offer beyond endless beaches? It’s very family-friendly and there’s so much more to do than sunbathe: the Pamplemousse Botanical Garden is world-famous and the Sacred Lake of Grand Bassin is a center of Hindu pilgrimmage and worship. Hidden in the interior of the island are volcanic craters and cascading waterfalls. Africa specialist Daniela Bonanno recently visited Mauritius and found so much to recommend it. Her favorite properties? The Dinarobin for its location in a lesser-developed area of the island; the Royal Palm, a boutique property with an amazing spa and proximity to the town of Grand Baie; and the One & Only Le Saint Geran, a longtime favorite with impeccable service.

Dinarobin is tucked away in southwest Mauritius, which is considerably less developed than the north, and it has essentially a private seven-kilometer stretch of beach.
The Royal Palm. Situated on a stretch of pristine beach on the northern coast of Mauritius, the hotel is built entirely of stone, wood, and thatch.

The One & Only Le Saint Geran is perfect for visitors looking for a large, comfortable, and relaxed luxury resort that has cultivated its signature style and impeccable service with extreme care over the years.
