Mauritius is located in the south west of the Indian Ocean, in the heart of the Mascarene Islands. It boasts some varied landscapes: mountains and hills, gorges and sugar canes fields and of course a coast sublimated by a coral reef acting as a wall between the navy blue of the ocean and the turquoise colours of the lagoon. The calendar is punctuated by numerous religious celebrations due to its diverse ethnicity and its population. Mosques, churches, temples and pagodas form a real architectural puzzle, where minarets, bells and walls ornate with multiple divinities stand alongside. We recommend some luxury hotels selected with care, for their style, their attention to small details and their personality; for example, the mythical Royal Palm or the Shanti Maurice, an establishment with character which through its program of excursions shows off Mauritius in all its authenticity.
