Mauritius, paradise island, seems very expensive, for those who want to have the holidays of their life …… an unattainable dream … .. impossible to reach. But some dreams become a reality. You just need to know how to do it. There are different types of accommodation that you can use: hotel groups, boutique hotels, private homes, luxury villas or apartments.
The hotel groups
Mauritius is famous for being a luxury destination with 5 * hotels. There are several hotel groups, almost all Mauritians and some foreigners.
The group is the first to have believed in the Mauritian hotel industry. With the creation of the first luxury hotel, the Royal Palm in 1985, the group excelled in the art of Luxury. Other hotels will follow, such as Paradise, Dinarobin, Mauricia, Trou aux Biches, Shandrani, Victoria and the newly renovated Cannonier.
This group has existed for several years and has positioned itself as a safe bet for the tourism accommodation. The group based its commerce on the authenticity of the Mauritian. Every effort has been made to ensure that guests bathe in a very Mauritian atmosphere. The hotels are divided into different types: cosy hotels, adult only hotels, leisure hotels and resorts.
It is the Mauritian hotel group that extends itself outside the mauritian waters, establishing itself in the region, Seychelles, Maldives, Zanzibar and Madagascar. The passion to do well is the keyword of this chain of luxury hotels. Moreover, in addition to the 5 * service, it specialises in golf with mythical golf greens with international tournament standards.
The group has totally integrated into the Mauritian landscape. He fused with the decor, with his sleek style, his service dedicated to their customers with passion and precision. Two hotels will be added, very soon, the group, in Grand Bay and in the west.
As the name suggests, the group focuses on Mauritian values, which are family, sharing and respect. The hotels are generous in every sense of the word, warm decoration, fine cuisine and service from the heart.
In all regions of the island, you can stay in small, charming and incredibly refined hotels. These hotels offer impeccable service, spacious rooms and pleasantly decorated, beautiful local and foreign cuisine. However, they often make a room and breakfast package only. Why not? This kind of accommodation will allow you to discover the small local restaurants and to visit the surrounding area.
Renting a room in a private house is certainly the best way to know our culture and our traditions. Definitely, this accommodation will cost much less. However, no 5 * services and not all the benefits of staying in a hotel. But, a very beautiful experience … .. well, then you can really say that you know Mauritius.
Renting a luxury villa, is becoming a common habit for tourists who want to visit our island. The villas are very spacious and are often located in secured complexes. Other villas are located in hotel parks, where guests can enjoy the service of the hotel or go to eat in the restaurants and enjoy the facilities of the hotel. For those who want to rent an independent luxury villa and want to have a 5 * service, they can use a concierge service that will take care of everything; the purchase of provisions for the stay, the rental of a luxury vehicle and the booking of several activities … .. a turnkey service!
The phenomenon, AIRBNB, has reached our shores. You can rent an apartment at a very cheap price. This allows you to spend more money on activities, renting a car or a scooter and discover Mauritius at your own pace. You can also go to the supermarket, cook, enjoy the beach, which often, is next door.
So, as you can see, coming to Mauritius will cost you as much as you wish to put money. It’s up to you to make the right choice and to know your priorities. Luxury has always been one of the aspects of Mauritian tourism. However, we are putting more and more emphasis on the authenticity of Mauritians. Discover an exciting island, through the eyes of its people, its cuisine, its music, its culture and its traditions.
