February 24 2020

The gorgeous tropical island of Mauritius has fast become a bucket list must-visit, and a perusal of online travel photos will quickly give you an idea why this has become the case. Not only is this Indian Ocean gem easily accessible (from many countries across the world), it has a reasonable currency, an amazing array of things to do, mesmerising tropical surrounds and a clutch of magical four- and five-star hotels. What’s more? It’s equal parts fascinating and alluring. 

One of the best things about this destination is that it can be whatever you want it to be because it has something for every type of traveller: from an exotic food scene to ample opportunities for epic adventures, it’s quite simply, the ultimate island holiday destination.

There’s one challenge though: figuring out which of the many hotels on the island to stay at. One may wonder, where can you make the most of all of Mauritius’ enchanting facets and still get extraordinary service, accommodation and luxury comforts? If this is something you have mulled over yourself, then we have the answer—any of the unique Sun Resorts hotels—Ambre, La Pirogue, Sugar Beach or Long Beach—is bound to be perfect for you. 

Here are 6 reasons to stay with Sun Resorts for your holiday in Mauritius:

  • You’ll have the opportunity to embrace all things “Mauritian” (like the food)

People travel for many reasons, but often it's because they have a deep desire to explore new places and cultures, to meet people from different backgrounds and to have memorable and immersive experiences. The eclectic country of Mauritius has so much to offer intrepid travellers and the best part is when you stay at a Sun Resorts hotel, you don’t have to travel far to enjoy some of the best facets of Mauritius.

Mauritian food


One of the very best ways to familiarise yourself with Mauritius is to taste the delectable local culinary offerings. Indulge in the Mauritian Evening buffets at each of the different hotels, make the most of the Mauritian Day at Ambre on Fridays (enhanced by staff dressed in Mauritian attire, a Mauritian cooking demonstration and local music) and relish a trip to a local market followed by a cooking class with the chef at Long Beach. You can also indulge in modern street food at La Pirogue or embrace the sophisticated wonders at the plantation-inspired Sugar Beach—your Mauritian experience at Sun Resorts is sure to be memorable. 

  • They all boast exceptional locations and beaches

Each of the glorious Sun Resorts hotels is perched along some of the finest beaches in Mauritius. Typically characterised by long stretches of powder-fine beaches, cyan coral reef lagoons, tropical gardens (and in Sugar Beach’s case, manicured French/tropical gardens) and boasting exquisite views of sunrise or sunset (depending on which coast you are staying on, east or west), the hotels allow guests to fully experience the extraordinary beauty of Mauritius.

The beaches at the Sun Resorts hotels are gorgeous, and luxury beach experiences can be enjoyed along the dreamy Sun Resorts shores. Beach butlers are on hand to serve refreshments, clean sunglasses, offer reading materials and face sprays to ensure that your beach experience at Sun Resorts is everything you could hope for and more. At the hotels, you also have the option of accessing special beaches (at Long Beach) or using special beachside equipment for a small additional fee for a carefree day in the sun (enquire about the Sun Beach experiences).

  • They all offer phenomenal ways to enjoy the Mauritian climate

Mauritius is known for its extraordinary year-round weather and Sun Resorts has done their utmost to ensure guests have fabulous ways to make the most of it. From al fresco dining options and a daily programme (with mostly outdoor activities) to a huge array of water sports and diving excursions, as a guest of Sun Resorts, you’re spoilt for choice.

Enquire at one of the Sun diving centres about their diving excursions (and, in La Pirogue’s case, diving courses), ask your hotel’s front office about day trip recommendations, or simply enjoy one of the motorised or (complimentary) non-motorised water sports on offer which include everything from windsurfing and kayaking to parasailing and glass-bottomed boat tours. 

  • They are home to unparalleled signature experiences

If you are looking to enjoy a holiday you will always remember, then Sun Resorts Mauritius has some wonderful signature offerings and experiences for their guests. Enjoy a cocktail-making class at Long Beach’s Rhum Academy, indulge in homemade gelato at the ice cream cart or a world-class wine at the Van der Stel Wine Bar at La Pirogue, embrace a Gossip Night or People of the Sun experience at Sugar Beach or start the day with sunrise yoga at Ambre—there’s something special for practically every moment of every day with Sun Resorts.

For unusual culinary experiences, La Pirogue’s Seafood BBQ enjoyed under the stars is a must, as is a meal at Sugar Beach’s Buddha-Bar (or a cocktail at sunset), dinner at Long Beach’s Hasu or a seaside delicacy enjoyed at Ambre’s La Plage. 

These are just some of the signature experiences at the Sun Resorts hotels, but there are many more, all offered to ensure that you have special holiday moments that inspire Timeless Memories. 

  • They are ideal locations for your wedding or honeymoon 

Each of the spectacular Sun Resorts hotels is the ultimate place for a wedding or honeymoon and offer special packages and add-ons to ensure that these important life events are perfect. Private, luxury rooms, stellar service, treats for wedding or honeymoon couples and magically added extras—not to mention picture-perfect tropical surrounds—definitely make for unforgettable and precious moments during this special time.

  • Novel activities
