Apart from staggeringly beautiful natural surrounds, this eclectic island nation offers visitors a glimpse into its incredible culture, with fascinating sights, museums, experiences and absolutely delicious local cuisine. It’s a destination deserving of its place on any traveller’s bucket list.
As a highly sought after tourist destination, there’s definitely no shortage of accommodation options to suit a diverse array of needs and budgets. But for those that seek only the finest things in life, Mauritius has fast become known for its sensational variety of absolutely exquisite five-star luxury resorts. Here’s everything you need to know about the five-star hotels in Mauritius:
Visitors to Mauritius are spoilt for choice
No matter which part of the island you would like to stay on, you are sure to find an incredible number of five-star properties to choose from. Mauritius—once an off-the-beaten-path destination for adventurers in the know—has become a tourist hotspot and is especially popular among Europeans such as the French and the British.
In 1970, it was estimated that there were only around 18,000 visitors a year to Mauritius and now, it’s over a million a year—an incredible jump which makes tourism one of the main pillars of the local economy. With the increase in numbers of tourists, there has naturally, been a gradual increase in exceptional five-star properties in the Indian Ocean nation, giving discerning guests over 30 five-star properties to choose from today.
