Mauritius – Overview

Mark Twain once remarked that ‘Mauritius was made first… and then heaven was copied after Mauritius’. Chalk-white beaches shaded by casuarinas, coastal plains of sugar cane and ebony forests rising to a mountainous interior, and waters the colour of sparkling tanzanite, protected by coral reefs - it certainly looks the part. But it wasn’t until 1975, nearly 80 years after Twain’s visit, that this heavenly island opened its first luxury resort, the legendary Saint Géran. In its glamorous wake came dozens of high-end properties, making this the most luxurious spot in the Indian Ocean.

Despite competition from both the Maldives and the Seychelles these days, there is much about this easy-going tropical island, fanned by south-easterly trade winds, that keeps us coming back for more. Perhaps it’s because Mauritius is such a delightful fusion of cultures and people - a harmonious patchwork of French, Indian, Creole and Chinese influences that is reflected in all aspects of island life, particularly in its cuisine. We can think of little in all of the Indian Ocean to beat a Mauritian fish curry. Mostly, though, it’s because this island the size of Dorset still boasts more luxury resorts than any other. It’s true they failed to save the Dodo, but we’ll forgive them that.
