When it comes to luxury holidays, Mauritius really has it all. Sparkling blue waters, clear skies and golden, sandy beaches are the first sights to welcome visitors when they visit this breathtaking island. The island itself seems to have been created specifically for relaxation, and it’s no wonder then that so many people each year choose holidays to Mauritius.

Despite its popularity the island remains largely unspoilt. This is, perhaps, the reason why Mauritius is so often thought of as a luxury holiday destination. So if you’re after the vacation of a lifetime, here are the top five luxury activities to take part in on this beautiful African island.

Deep Sea Fishing

Deep sea fishing isn’t commonly thought of as a luxury activity, be it can be made so when you’re fishing for marlin, tuna and shark from the deck of your private yacht. Hire a boat for the day and head out into crystal clear waters for a fishing experience you’ll never forget, and don’t forget to top up your tan whilst on board.

Spa Treatments

Spas on Mauritius are a dime a dozen, but there are a few choice resorts which offer unparalleled luxury to discerning visitors. Spend a day at a luxury spa and feel your senses drift away as your body is pummelled and pumiced, your skin is soothed and stroked, and every fibre of your being is made subject to some of the most exclusive spa treatments in the world.

Luxury Accommodation

There are many different types of accommodation which can be booked on Mauritius, and for those looking for ultimate luxury there are 5* hotels, spa resorts and honeymoon suites. Expect large, spacious apartments, private beaches, stunning sea views and world class service.


Shopping on Mauritius is highly regard around the world. But don’t go straight to the luxury boutiques, of which there are many, as the local markets provide some quality items, such as food and clothing, for very reasonable prices.

Water Sports

Don’t be put off by the word ‘sports’! Water based sporting activities in Mauritius tend to be very laid back, and can be easily enjoyed by anyone from beginner level to advanced. But if you’re truly in search of the luxury experience, book a private instructor to take you on a diving tour of the island, or hire your own speedboat to indulge in a spot of parasailing off your private beach.
