One of the island’s largest spas, the Seven Colours Spa Village at Heritage Resorts Awali, Le Telfair and The Villas, offers personalised fi tness programmes inspired by chakra philosophy, incorporating treks in the beautiful surroundings of Frédérica Nature Reserve. Also inspired by its natural surroundings, and home to an array of exotic birds, the award-winning Tropical Flower Spa at Maritim Mauritius (maritim. com) uses essential oils and elixirs of fl owers and plants grown on its own estate, which also offers a tranquillity area where guests can relax behind a cascading waterfall.


LUX* Resorts’ (luxresorts.com) award- winning LUX* Me’s three-day Vitality Experience from £400 – excluding accommodation – combines spa treatments with fi tness, relaxation, nutrition and healthy eating, while its LUX* Me Zhengliao healing practice, developed by the Chinese Clinic Daoji, encompasses all aspects of health and well-being (from £90). The 25-cabin Nira Spa at Shanti Maurice (shantimaurice.com) has added the Magnesium Sleep Therapy treatment to its range, with magnesium-infused oil which


releases melatonin – the body’s sleep hormone – and aromatherapy to lull guests into peaceful slumber. Spa Suite guests at the award-winning Angsana Balaclava can indulge in a daily 90-minute spa session at the resort’s ayurvedic hydrotherapy spa, with Banyan Tree-trained therapists.


New exclusive beauty brands include Carita at the recently-refurbished Sanctuary Spa at The Residence (theresidence.com) and Spa de Constance by Sisley at Constance Le Prince Maurice (princemaurice. constancehotels.com), while the Cabane Spa features Sacred Nature products at Lakaz Chamarel Exclusive Lodge (lakazchamarel.com).


The island’s fi rst, ultra-modern Iridium Spa at The St. Regis Mauritius Resort (stregismauritius.com) has 12 treatment rooms (two for couples), seven spa suites, a sauna, steam room and relaxation terrace, and offers the anti-ageing Elixir des Glaces from Valmont as its signature treatment. But if all this sounds like far too much hard work, there’s always the option to simply fl oat the day away in the island’s fi rst fl oatation tank at the Baystone Boutique Hotel & Spa (baystone.mu).
