4 Star Hotels in Mauritius
The island paradise of Mauritius is simply an exceptional holiday destination. Steeped in a rich culture and fascinating history, this Indian Ocean gem offers guests access to its spectacular coastline, incredible natural beauty and a plethora of novel activities—it’s the type of holiday destination to suit everyone.
Interestingly, Mauritius wasn’t always a sought-after tourist destination—it’s a fairly new development with numbers of tourists per year steadily on the rise. What was once a secret hideaway for surfers and barefoot adventurers is now a bucket list must-visit, with an array of incredible accommodation from quaint self-catering cottages to exceptional luxury four- and five-star hotels. For those that want to live out their island holiday days in luxury (at slightly more affordable prices), then it’s a great idea to have a look at some of the magical luxury hotels on the island. With close to 30 four-star hotels in Mauritius, you should be able to find one that is perfect for you.
If you are looking for the laid-back luxury of an exotic four-star hotel in Mauritius, then these are some things to keep in mind:
Many of them offer a range of excellent services and experiences
The four-star hotels in Mauritius have been created to impress as much as their five-star counterparts and have similar services and offerings (some of which may just come at an additional cost), which makes them a wonderful option for those who don’t want to fork out the extra for a five-star hotel in Mauritius. These hotels centre on excellent service and wonderful experiences but may not offer the full array of facilities that five-star hotels do.

- Special occasion festivities (for example, over the festive season)
- Daily activity programmes
- Kids clubs and babysitting services (this differs from hotel to hotel)
- Complimentary non-motorised water sports
- 24-hour reception
- Sports facilities
- Good service
- Good quality fittings furnishings and pleasing decor
These are some of the things a four-star property might not have (as opposed to five-star hotels):
- A luxury spa
- A world-class fitness centre
- Fine-dining restaurants
- Personalised butler services
- Business centres
- Guest relations assistants
- High-quality bathroom amenities
- Exceptional, personalised service
- Sensational decor and high-end fittings and furnishings
The four-star hotels in Mauritius are all quite different
Given the incredible choice of four-star hotels in Mauritius, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they are all quite different from each other. The differences also arise in what they offer. You might be able to find a four-star hotel in Mauritius that offers exclusive experiences, fine dining restaurants, exceptional signature offerings and even access to their very own (or a sister property's) luxury spa and fitness centre, much like Ambre and La Pirogue. Other four-star hotels may just offer the basics so be sure to find one that “has it all” (or whatever you need).
Ambre and La Pirogue are two of the top four-star hotels on the island
With the host of four-star hotels to choose from it can be difficult to separate the good ones from the not-so-good ones. But between Ambre and La Pirogue, guests looking for a special holiday in paradise with their loved ones need not look any further.
Ambre is an exceptional laid-back haven reserved exclusively for adults (above the age of 16), which makes it the perfect retreat for loved-up couples looking for a great place to both unwind and make the most of the wonderful nightlife. This gorgeous hotel has a diverse array of restaurants to choose from, a range of thrilling activities, a gorgeous tropical spa, a well-equipped fitness centre, passionate associates who go above and beyond for their guests and much more. It’s the ultimate four-star hotel for a memorable (and romantic) holiday in the sun.
La Pirogue is a superb destination for fun-loving families and couples looking for an authentic Mauritian experience. Tropical Mauritian touches balance perfectly with a boho-chic flair to create a sensational resort encompassed by lush, tropical gardens. A stunning place to simply kick back and relax, indulge in luxury, signature experiences (while the kids have the time of their lives at our kids club) or make the most of the favourable weather in Mauritius, a holiday at La Pirogue is what island dreams are made of.
