Our experts loved

Danielle loved the adults-only Maradiva Villas in Mauritius and thinks they’re perfect for honeymooners. Every guest has a private villa with its own pool so you can enjoy your own pocket of paradise – and all with 24-hour butler service! Danielle recommends choosing a beachfront villa to be closest to the sand and the sea, and private dining can be arranged for an extra special treat. You can also add on a few nights on the neighbouring island of La Réunion for some extra adventure.
