Mauritius has been described by Mark Twain as “heaven on earth". If you are looking to spend a luxury honeymoon vacation in the Indian Ocean, then you need look no further than this beautiful island, teeming with local colour and amazing beaches. Located almost on the Tropic of Cancer, this jewel in the Indian Ocean is an excellent spot to go for your romantic vacation.
In Mauritius you can get away from the hustle bustle of daily life and spend time in each other's company, and enjoy all that the island has to offer. You may just find yourself growing overwhelmed by all that you can do while on your luxury vacation.
As one of the most romantic destinations that a young couple can go to, the island offers plenty of accommodation in luxury resorts that boast excellent facilities which include, but are not limited to, golf courses, swimming pools, luxury spas, full body massages, and a variety of water sports.
The best time to visit would be from July to September, as the temperature and humidity levels will be lower than at other times throughout the year. However, Mauritius is an amazing year round destination, so feel free to book a holiday for a different time of the year should you wish to - but be prepared for a lot more rain than usual in the Spring months.
Diving spots are best visited between December and March, as the waters are clearest at this time of the year, and you will have perfect visibility to view the teeming undersea life during your stay at the various dive spots. Trained instructors and dive boats are available throughout the year.
A luxury holiday in Mauritius will provide you with many opportunities to relax and unwind. There are various resorts to choose from at the hotel, all of them better than the last. The Royal Palm is located on the northwest part of the island in tropical surroundings. It is also situated near the Grand Baie and is a place that many celebrities, royalty, and heads of state frequent from time to time.
Another excellent location is the Trou Aux Biches. This hotel is next to the island's best beaches, and offers privacy in its chalet accommodation, situated in tropical gardens but only a one minute walk from the beach. If you are looking to play a few rounds of golf, then look no further than the Paradise Golf Resort or the Dinarobin Spa Resort, which has its own 18-hole golf course - and seven different restaurants for those of you love a culinary feast.
Mauritius has miles and miles of the whitest beaches imaginable. Nautical activities include diving, deep sea fishing, sailing, wind surfing and water skiing. A vantage point on the coast at Tamarin Bay provides an excellent place to spot long beaked dolphins and black dolphins. You can also take a deep sea fishing expedition for blue/black marlin, yellow tuna or barracuda.
Regardless of how you spend your holidays, Mauritius will provide you with an unforgettable vacation.
