Come and holiday in style on Mauritius Island and make it a trip to remember with exclusive and fashionable things to do during your stay. Gorgeous luxury villas at affordable prices, excellent beach clubs and restaurants along the coastline, shops, museums and spas – Mauritius has everything for an amazing holiday all about leisure and fashion. Here’s what to do:
1. Sunbathe, swim, relax and sip cocktails
Don’t even try to tell me you didn’t go shopping for a gorgeous, sexy bikini before going on holiday to Mauritius. Together with a pair of fashionable sunglasses & slippers, plus a beach sarong bought from the local beach vendors, you will swim and sunbathe in style during your island stay. Whether you are lounging at classy beach clubs, lazing on reclining chair out on the beach or enjoying some quality time by the poolside in your private villa, you’ll be doing it in style with a cocktail in hand, working on that gorgeous tan under the tropical island sun.
2. Trip to the spa
Spoil yourself with endless spa trips where you’ll get pampered inside out with traditional beauty treatments and massages. There are plenty of amazing luxury spas around. Get a cream bath, a facial, a massage, a manicure, a pedicure and a haircut – why not? At home, this will cost you an arm and a leg, here you can enjoy a guilt-free day at the spa, and without a doubt, and you’ll be reborn and revived by the time this holiday comes to an end.
3. Go shopping
From colourful souvenir markets and street stalls to fashionable, sophisticated shopping malls, in Mauritius, those who love to shop will love it even more. Bagatelle Mall is the place to be for luxury shopping, featuring 130 stores including Armani Jeans, Aldo and Celio. Prices are fixed and during weekends there are events and activities. If you are looking for beautiful handicrafts, head to Le Craft Market at Caudan Waterfront in Port Louis. One the other hand, if you feel like bargaining and shopping for souvenirs, head to Bay Bazaar in Grand Baie. Also, check out the Central Market of Port Louis to find exclusive homemade oils.
4. Sail away to the sunset
One of the most fashionable and memorable things to do in Mauritius is a Catamaran Day Cruise. Hop on board and sail away into the sunset. During this full-day trip out at sea, you get to swim and go snorkeling at beautiful spots and lagoons, you will munch on a BBQ feast on board, sip sunset drinks and the crew might even play live music.
5. Museum hopping in Port Louis
Make sure to sniff up some culture and learn all about the island’s history with a museum trip in Port Louis, the island’s capital. The Blue Penny Museum is dedicated to the history and art of the island. The Natural History Museum is the island’s oldest museum founded in 1842 and here you can learn about protected species of birds and fishes. One room is completely dedicated to the Dodo, an endangered giant bird, endemic to Mauritius. Continue to The Mauritius Photography Museum where you can admire old cameras and lenses, some of the first daguerreotype pictures on metal and ceramic and old stereoscopic imagess that allows a peek into what Mauritius looked like in 3D.
