ocean-front village at Centara Grand Azuri Resort & Spa (centarahotelsresorts. com), Heritage The Villas (heritageresorts. mu) in Domaine de Bel Ombre, and the St. Regis Villa, an exclusive beachfront property at the St. Regis Mauritius Resort (stregismauritiusvilla.com).


But while the family market is growing, there are also plenty of couples looking for a peaceful, adult-only escape, and Mauritius meets the specifi c needs of both types of customer. “It’s a cliché, but Mauritius really does offer something for everyone,” says Johanna Bromiley, Indian Ocean & Middle East Product Manager for The Turquoise Holiday Company. “The island is small enough for families to explore and feel safe, but it’s also a wonderfully romantic destination, with miles of powdery white sand, and some of the most luxurious, intimate hotels in the world.”


Many resorts like the One&Only Le Saint Géran (oneandonlyresorts.com) cater for all, coupling a romantic spa and restaurants with an exciting kids’ club, but there are some fantastic adults- only havens on the island, including the 5* Baystone Boutique Hotel & Spa


(baystone.mu), which offers a luxury spa, complete with couples’ massage rooms; Paradise Cove Boutique Hotel (paradisecovehotel.com), which reopened last year as adults-only, boasting cosy love nests and ‘He&She’ packages; and the relaxing Kuoni- exclusive Astroea Beach Hotel (kuoni.co.uk), which also switched to adults-only in 2013, and offers a spa, non-motorised watersports centre and accommodation in the main Creole-style building or garden bungalows.


The new wave of luxury villas are also a hit with couples wanting solitude and space. Villas Lencia (villaslencia.com) is a new resort concept near Grand Baie, comprising four waterfront villas with a hotel reception and private beach, and Coco Collection (cococollection. com) is now managing the luxurious Sankhara Villas on the east coast. Maradiva Villa Resort & Spa (maradiva. com) is a luxury all-villa resort, perfect for a romantic getaway, while Indian Ocean villa-rental specialist, Villas de Maître (villasdemaitre.com), has a great collection of properties, including luxury beach apartments at Black River.
