Whether you are an active duo or prefer to lay low (or you and your significant other enjoy the best of both worlds), then here are some of the magical ways to spend your unforgettable couple’s holiday in Mauritius:
Discover Mauritius from the luxury of a catamaran
There’s something quite special about enjoying the splendour of Mauritius from a different perspective and one of the best ways to do just that is on a romantic, private catamaran cruise. Sail into the sunset and enjoy the serenity of the gorgeous surrounds with your loved one while sipping a glass of champagne or a fabulous tropical cocktail. With the wide array of catamaran operators available, you can choose the ultimate cruise for you; from sublime cocktails and snacks to all-encompassing gastronomic experiences, you’re bound to find the ultimate experience for you and your beloved.
Spoil your loved one (and yourself!) at one of the luxury spas
Travelling with your significant other is a fabulous way to reignite the spark in your relationship and reconnect with your favourite person on earth. A spectacular way to do just that is to plan a special couple spa day or treatment where both of you can release the tensions of daily life and fully embrace the opportunity to immerse yourselves in the world of relaxation and bliss. With a plethora of luxury hotels and world-class spas, there’s certainly no limit on the choice of spas or treatments, so take your time and find the spa and treatment that resonates with you and your significant other the most.
If you are looking for a truely extraordinary spa experience, we recommend heading to Long Beach where their Cinq Mondes Spa offers guests the ultimate relaxation in utterly gorgeous settings. Choose from their massive array of body treatments and massages, make use of the hammam or opt for a spa package for a spectacular day in paradise for you and your love.
Take a long, romantic walk on the beach
The classic romantic walk on the beach may seem like a cliché but the perfectly soft, white sandy shores and the sweeping views of the scintillating turquoise waters of Mauritius make it irresistible. Spend quality time with your loved one on your couple’s holiday in Mauritius as you enjoy the naturally sublime beaches of this fascinating volcanic island paradise.
Go sunset horseback riding
Discover the incredible experience of horseback riding with your significant other while on an unforgettable couple’s holiday in Mauritius, made all the more glorious by expansive, stretches of pristine beaches and simply sensational views of the tranquil Indian Ocean. Opt for an experience that takes place on a secluded beach, where you and your loved one can truly immerse yourself in the moment and fully embrace a magical Mauritian sunset; a consistently phenomenal spectacle that promises an array of beautiful colors, typically characterised with hues of red, orange, purple and pink—the ultimate backdrop for a sensational experience shared with your loved one.
Experience a Mauritian rum tasting
For couples who love adventure, heading to the Chamarel area in the southwest of the island and exploring the Seven Coloured Earths, the Chamarel Waterfall and the Black River Gorges National Park is an absolute must. While you are in the area, you should definitely head to La Rhumerie de Chamarel, located among lush greenery and vivid sugar plantations. This wonderful distillery offers guided tours, delectable lunches and fabulous tasting experiences of the local rum. Here you can learn how sugarcane is cultivated and transformed into the award-winning Mauritian rum. An authentic and immersive experience, it definitely deserves its place on the list of must-do activities for the ultimate couple’s holiday in Mauritius.
Explore the magnificent SSR Botanical Garden
Step into what seems like the Garden of Eden in the heart of Port Louis at the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden and lose yourself amongst the phenomenal endemic flora. Best seen with a local guide, this phenomenal botanical garden (believed to be one of the oldest in the southern hemisphere), has a huge variety of wonderful sights to explore with your loved one; from an array of spectacular birdlife and over 85 varieties of palms, baobabs and more than 650 species of indigenous and foreign plants to a pond full of giant lilies, it’s nothing short of paradisiacal. It’s a wonderful place to escape to with your beloved while on your remarkable couple’s holiday in Mauritius.
Spend a day and a night on Ile aux Cerfs
