Five adults-only hotels to forget everything in Mauritius
June 29, 2022
All on the lagoon, these child-free establishments combine the legendary service and hospitality of one of the most beautiful islands in the Indian Ocean. They are also among the first adults-only addresses in this dream destination, each cultivating their own style.
The island, known as a kid-friendly destination, is seeing the development of addresses reserved for adults. Francophone, heavenly, and with a direct night flight to and from Mauritius, and a time difference of only two hours (from Sun. 27 March 2022 to Sun. 30 October 2022), Mauritius ticks all the boxes for a quick getaway for lovers. The 7-day/6-night format is even becoming a classic and allows you to alternate between lazing around and visiting nature without the frustration or guilt of being away from your family or your files for too long. Five hotels to disconnect and recuperate in calm and pleasure.
The most confidential, Paradise Cove 5 star hotel
In the north of the island, hidden in the middle of the vegetation of Anse la Raie and next to Cap Malheureux – one of the most beautiful coasts, wild and basaltic – this boutique-hotel entirely renovated plays the card of an intimate luxury, with Mauritian handicrafts for a bohemian chic decoration. Rafia, old maps, antique furniture and contemporary four-poster beds in the suites… A bar with a typical island spirit, three infinity pools, and a Japanese restaurant on stilts overlooking a small inland sea. A favorite.
The archi-graphic, Salt of Palmar 5 star hotel
On the east coast of the island, the LUX group is inaugurating a collection of “younger” and lifestyle hotels with 59 rooms and suites. We immediately recognize the lively and colorful universe of French designer Camille Walala, who has created an address without TVs in the rooms, but with large outdoor tables to encourage discussion, a library to live in, a number of activities to try on the beach and some authentic experiences to enjoy with the locals. The hotel is very committed to eco-responsibility (recycled sheets, responsible materials, short circuit cooking, etc. ….)
The address within the address, Nirvana space at Le Méridien 5 star hotel
Located on the long beach of Pointe aux Piments, in the west of the island, Le Méridien reopens with a new timeless design and, above all, with an exclusive space dedicated to adults. In all, 51 rooms with breathtaking ocean views, exclusive access to the Paparazzi restaurant, and some with their own pool. The royal suites, designed as small villas, even have a bar, a living and dining room, and a Jacuzzi.
For (another) honeymoon, the Veranda Paul et Virginie Hotel & Spa 4 star hotel
Inspired by the romantic story of these two children who survived the shipwreck of the Saint-Géran, this four-star hotel renovated in 2017 pampers lovers with a heavenly setting and, for example, the possibility of dining for two at the end of the pier or… taking meals in your room, at any time of day. In addition to its proximity to Grand Bay – a must for its restaurants, bars and stores – the hotel offers the advantage of combining the intimacy of a secluded beach with a typical location in the heart of the fishing village of Grand Gaube.
To go back in time, Château de Bel Ombre Private property
In the south of the island, in the heart of the 2500 hectares of nature of the Domaine de Bel Ombre, an authentic 1765 manor house offers an unusual experience: falling asleep “alone in the world” in the only suite of this typical 19th century plantation residence. In fact, you can take over the entire second floor with its patinated furniture and interior garden, enjoy tea time in the living rooms and, in the evening, sit down with outside guests at the gourmet table for a “farm to plate” menu. Wake up to a breathtaking view of the French gardens.
