An excellent choice for golfers, Mauritius is home to several beautifully manicured courses and is also an ideal place to enjoy various water sports in the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean.

For those who prefer to take it easy on holiday you can look forward to top-class pampering in excellent spas and whether you’ve spent the day snorkelling, swinging a club or just soaking up the sun, you can count on enjoying superb cuisine throughout your stay.
