Exciting Things To Do In Mauritius

Exciting Things To Do In Mauritius

If sitting on a beach all day every day isn’t quite your cup of tea, but you really fancy a long haul holiday to a stunning island destination, Mauritius could be just what you are looking for. With many activities both in and out of the resorts, a luxury holiday in Mauritius can provide interest for a range of visitors.

The island itself is an independent state in the Indian Ocean, 900km east of Madagascar. The area is 1860sq km and is made up of a central plateau, gradually rising towards the South West where it reaches its highest point at 800m.

Excursions around the island will give you an insight into the islands rich and colorful history, and where better to start than the vibrant capital, Port Louis. The harbor on the west of the island lies sheltered in a semi-circle of mountains, and the town has plenty of character and proudly displays signs of its historical past.

If designer shopping outlets are what you are looking for, then a trip to Curepipe is well worth the visit. This is the islands main urban center and is worth a stop if traveling through it on route to somewhere else! It’s located in the center of the island between Port Louis and the airport.

Mahebourg is a village which is worth a visit, especially if staying in the southeast of the island. It’s still one of the islands main fishing villages, and you are at leisure to wander around the market stalls. You can even hire a bicycle and cycle there if you are staying at the Shandrani!

Catamaran Trips can be arranged from most hotels and are an excellent way to see the beauty of Mauritius from the relaxing waters of the Indian Ocean. You are encouraged to snorkel from the boat, and you also have time to relax on one of the beautiful beaches of the island.

Mauritius has a wealth of activities orientated around its environment.

A nature park close to Port Louis, Domaine Les Pailles, covers 3000 acres at the foot of a mountain range. There are deer and rare birds in the park, and if you like a bit of adrenaline, Land Rover ‘safaris’ and quad biking are also available.

The island has a stunning botanical garden called Pamplemousses, it’s known to naturalists throughout the world for its large collection of indigenous and exotic palms, and the giant Victoria Amazonica water lilies. It is well worth paying for a guide to take you around the gardens as their knowledge and tit-bits of information make the visit all the more enjoyable.

A unique feature in Mauritius is Chamarel, an area of undulating land stretching in contrasting layers of color, the patches of blue, green, red and yellow earth, all believed to be the results of weathering.

Mauritius is well known to ornithologists and the Casela Bird Park is set in the area of Black River, and stretches over 20 acres. There are more than 140 varieties of birds, from 5 continents. The main attraction is the Mauritian Pink Pigeon, one of the rarest birds in the world.

The beautiful flower of Ylang with its fragrant yellow flowers, is grown in a plantation called Le Domaine de l’Ylang Ylang. Here the perfume is distilled over panoramic views over the bay of Vieux Grand Port, where the neighboring islets can be seen.

Trips around the island can be booked from your hotel, with luxury holidays in Mauritius to a variety of hotels including the Shandrani can be arranged through Beachcomber Tours. For more information visit www.beachcombertours.co.uk or call 01483 445610.

Mauritius Luxury Holidays At Dinarobin Golf And Spa Hotel

Mauritius 5 star Luxury Holidays are the choice of tens of thousands of holidaymakers every year, and this number is rising rapidly. It is about an eleven hour flight from most European departure cities to this Indian Ocean Hideaway.

Some people choose the Dinarobin Golf and Spa Hotel, and there must be some good reasons that make them choose this hotel for their package holiday in Mauritius. Indeed Dinarobin has become a popular destination for a Mauritius honeymoon as well as a Mauritius package holiday.

Perhaps it is the scenery, because the exclusive resort of Dinarobin, which has excellent facilities, is surrounded by dramatic scenery and sits adjacent to over four miles of immaculate white sand beach. There is excellent diving here, and the resort of Dinarobin is a great place for couples so well suited if you are planning a honeymoon in Mauritius.

You will find the Dinarobin Golf and Spa Hotel on the very attractive southwest corner of Mauritius, with Le Morne mountain making a great backdrop, and it is about a one hour drive from the airport.

The hotel consists of a series of thatched villas in tropical gardens facing the beautiful beach. Each villa has between two and six suites.

Each suite at Dinarobin has a large and private verandah and is furnished with natural wood and bamboo.

When it comes to recreation, there are a huge number of things to do on land and water. These include the following free activities: Water skiing, windsurfing, use of kayaks, pedal boats, glass bottom boat trips, snorkeling, on and under the water.

There are also three tennis courts, a fitness center, sauna, and steam, again all complimentary.

Also available, although you do have to pay are scuba diving, deep sea fishing, golf on an eighteen hole international standard course at the sister hotel the Paradis which is next door, and there is a 24-hour shuttle service between the two hotels. The golf course whilst not demanding for the expert, is nevertheless well kept, and very attractive, plus the fact it isn’t that expensive!!

Dinarobin also has Mountain biking as a paid extra for those who insist upon exercise on their honeymoon or luxury 5-star vacation in Mauritius.

The Dinarobin is a hotel that positively welcomes children, and there is a mini club for the 3-12-year-olds and tennis, water sports, and golf coaching for the teenagers as well as a games room. For those people with small children, there is also a paid babysitting service so you can enjoy the three restaurants with this reassurance.

The children’s club is very well staffed, well structured, and plenty to keep the children amused. They can eat lunch there with the staff, and this costs about £10, then dinner is free, with good menu choices. It stays open until 11 pm.

This leaves parents free to eat alone, and the buffet restaurant is popular with a different theme every night of the week. Excellent dining should be a feature of any Luxury Holiday and Dinarobin in Mauritius makes it a feature.

L’Harmonie is open for all meals and has themed evenings. Saveurs des Iles is a fusion of French & Mauritian and is open six nights a week, and Le Morne Plage on the beach opens for lunch and a few ‘Lobster Evenings’. Guests can also eat at the sister hotel Le Paradis

One of the outstanding features of your holiday in Mauritius at the Dinarobin, especially for the bone idle who like to relax is the top class Clarins Spa, and that is not to forget the beauty salon for the ladies.

The senior suites are especially worthwhile at the Dinarobin, and they have the added touches which can make or break a luxury holiday in Mauritius, and it is worth exploring all the options with your travel agent to get the best possible price for your package holiday. There are enormous price variations, and with some online research as well you’ll be surprised at the deals that are possible to bring a senior suite within your reach, especially if you are choosing Mauritius and the Dinarobin for your honeymoon vacation.

The Senior Suites are lovely, large, plenty of space, with a walk-in shower in the bathroom, and right next to the beach, so if you are on the ground floor you can walk straight out onto the beach.

There is a separate club for those guests in a senior suite, and you can choose to take breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and then drinks before dinner which is free, including champagne, and canapés. The free drinks help you make quite a saving compared to buying drinks in the hotel itself.

The Dinarobin is a year-round destination although tropical storms can occur between November and April, and there will be cool winds from June to September. You can have a very worthwhile Mauritius Luxury Holiday here.
