Best Mauritius Resorts
LUX Le Morne
When it comes to merging Mauritius luxury resorts with comfort, Lux Le Morne knows how to do it seamlessly. Luckily, they had a little help from award-winning interior designer Kelly Hoppen to bring their vision alive ultra-stylishly.
This luxury resort sits on a secluded beach right on the blue water and white sand shore. It makes for the perfect serene views while you enjoy sundowners from the on-site bars and restaurants — one of which sits on the rooftop.
Rooms are modern and sleek, with private patios also overlooking the shore. Smart home features and on-demand films mean you’ll have a joyful stay without (almost) having to lift a finger.
Depending on your suite choice, you may also have access to a private dining room, seating area, and pool to unwind in after a long day of water activities.
I’ve had the privilege of staying at this fantastic resort myself, and, man, was it a wonderful experience. Outrigger sits in the south of the island, away from the crowds and more in the space of nature.
The rooms are impossibly spacious, with even the most economical options treating you to a huge bathroom with a bathtub, seating area, and private patio overlooking the resort and its lush surroundings.
You can easily wind down in the resort spa, four swimming pools, and four restaurants. Each morning you’re fueled with a buffet breakfast before you can make your way to the nearby beaches – just a few metres away.

Intercontinental Balaclava Fort
If you’re dreaming of five-star luxury on a three-star budget, Intercontinental Balaclava Fort might just be the top Mauritius resort for you.
Not only is the resort nestled in Balaclava Bay, which affords you a picturesque white sand beach at your fingertips (or, should I say, toetips?) but the entire hotel is decked out in understated luxury that makes it feel as if you’ve, quite literally, entered paradise.
Rooms are on the simple side, though the honeymoon room is particularly impressive if you can manage to snag that. Better yet, there’s a spa, two swimming pools, and five restaurants all available on site, so there’s no need to even leave the hotel.
The Oberoi seriously impresses. Tucked away inside 20 acres of sub tropical paradise, this Mauritius resort is what dreams are made of.
The on-site restaurants serve cuisine ranging from Asian and Creole to BBQ, while there’s also a swimming pool, spa, and wellness centre.
Rooms are hella impressive (though they come with a price tag to match), blending traditional Mauritian style with handcrafted trinkets and furnishings with an impressive view of the sparkling ocean.
Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort
Keen golfers will adore that a stay in Heritage Awali Resort includes free access to the impressive golf course.
Though, don’t worry if you’re not into golf – there are plenty of other reasons why you should stay at this Mauritius resort. The fact that meals are included in the rates is a case in point. Or, how about the gorgeous modern African-style rooms? I thought you might like that.
The Seven Colours Spa offers a variety of relaxing treatments – and a back massage is thrown in for free during your stay. I guarantee you’ll leave feeling totally refreshed.
While still one of the best all-inclusive resorts Mauritius has, C Mauritius is slightly more affordable than the rest. This tropical resort is on the east coast, opening it up to many ocean activities.
The suites retain a natural and beachy feel with wood furnishings and oversized windows opening to your patio facing the resort and beach. You can up your luxe stay by choosing a beachfront room, so you’re always front and centre on the white sand shore.
While the resort is close to many attractions, restaurants, and beaches, you won’t have to go far for your entertainment fix. C Mauritius has a spa, clubhouse, and beach club where guests can enjoy pampering, excursions, drinking, and dancing to local live music.
Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa
The Westin Turtle Bay Resort knows how to blend sophistication with the natural beauty of the Mauritian shores. It’s THE place to stay for an opulent vacation to the island, and I’ll tell you why…
The space has a diving centre, medical services, wellness centre, and grand rooms with unforgettable views. Each suite has ocean views you can see right from your comfortable bed — daily sunrise views, anyone? It also has a large seating area, patio, and free-standing bath or showers.
You can relax by the pool or head to the beach not too far from here for various beach sports and water activities. Then, head to the beachside restaurant, where you can chow down on a fusion menu made from fresh local ingredients.
Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa
Trou aux Biches
This is one of the more affordable golf resorts Mauritius has, just a stone’s throw away from Trou aux Biches Beach. But, even if you’re not training to be the next Tiger Woods, you can still be sure to have a fantastic getaway in the 35-hectare tropical garden.
The resort blends land and sea, as it has overwater bridge pathways leading you on your way to your rooms. While many parts of the resort have the typical thatched roofs (similar to those in the Maldives), this resort decided to incorporate the country’s Asian roots as well, with beautifully ornate tops on some suites.
Inside the suites, things are simple — with a minimalist style that doesn’t skimp on quality.
Instead, you’ll find large rooms with either garden or ocean views and access to the outdoor pools.
Of course, you won’t want to stay cooped up in your room, so don’t be afraid to explore. As a guest here, you’ll get special access to the 18-hole Mont Choisy Le Golf course, where you can spend the day swinging a few balls.
But, if golf isn’t for you, you can visit the spa, six on-site restaurants, or many water sports facilities here.
Preskil Island Resort
Luxury doesn’t have to be expensive, and Preskil Island Resort proves that. It’s in the island’s southeast region, not too far from Blue Bay Marine Park and white sand beaches.
Choose Preskil Island Resort if you’re looking for a true island experience. Here, you’ll never be far from the beach — not when the patio doors of your room open up right on the sand.
Besides that, the space has a tranquil interior with wood and wicker furniture in your spacious room and a double-basin bathroom.
The resort’s main focus is the beach, water activities, and its outdoor swimming pools. But it also has restaurants, a bar, and a wellness centre to unwind at. For the ultimate relaxation, visit the spa for full body treatments, saunas, and a dip in the bubbling jacuzzi — aaahh.
One & Only Le Saint Geran
Imagine lounging on your private poolside lounge under the stars with the waves crashing in the distance. Sounds amazing, right? Well, it’s not only amazing but doable at One & Only Le Saint Geran.
This resort in Belle Mare sits on a private peninsula, which means uninterrupted lagoon and ocean views from almost every angle — including your luxury suites.
These suites come with a dining and living room, as well as a bathroom and a huge private terrace. Not only do you get air conditioning and a TV, but you’ll get a stocked mini fridge and tea and coffee facilities too.
Similar to your rooms, the resort has everything you need for a comfortable stay. This includes five restaurants, an infinity pool, yoga classes, a spa, and a long list of on-site activities. Once you land here for your holiday, you won’t have to leave until you’re pulled to go to the airport.
Sugar Beach Mauritius
Sugar Beach Resort sits on one of the best Mauritius beaches in the country — Flic-and-Flac. This beach sanctuary has over 230 luxury guest rooms, all facing the bright blue shore of the Indian Ocean.
The Creole-style rooms have a serene feel thanks to the crashing waves you can hear from your private patio. The light wood furniture and neutral interiors further enhance that sense of calm. The bathrooms are equally as spacious, with an open-plan design, twin basins, and a large shower.
Each square inch of the resort is beautiful and thoughtfully decorated. You can see this in the tropical garden, wellness centre, and multiple on-site restaurants.
Don’t pass up the chance to practise your swing on Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club’s 18-hole golf course; it’s just a short boat ride away.
Best Resorts in Mauritius: Frequently Asked Questions
Practical Tips to Consider Before Booking Your Mauritius Resort
- October to April is peak season as those months fall into the warmer seasons. However, its low season, from May to September, offers cheaper hotel prices and balmy average temperatures of 24°C (75.2°F).
- While Mauritius is generally safe, it’s still good to be aware of your surroundings as petty crimes are becoming more popular.
- Public transport in the country is quite good, and you can get anywhere by bus or taxi. However, be mindful that buses stop running at around 6:45 pm. Taxis also don’t have metres, so you’ll have to practise your negotiation skills to work out your fare with the driver.
