Mauritius has long been a favourite with honeymooners and families, and as the doors reopen at the 6* Constance Le Prince Maurice, a new generation of luxury holiday aficionados are set to discover what the island has to offer.
Here are our top 8 reasons to go to Mauritius right now.
1. Natural beauty
Palm fringed white-sand beaches, turquoise seas and vibrant coral reefs make for a tropical island paradise. Add to this mountain peaks, lush green river gorges and waterfalls, and it’s not hard to see why Mauritius stands out as a top island destination.
2. Beautiful climate
The island’s tropical climate makes Mauritius an all-year round option if you’re looking for warmth and sunshine.
From December to April, it’s hotter and more humid, while from May to November it’s cooler and drier. The best time of year for diving is November to March.
3. Indian Ocean
What better playground for water sports enthusiasts than the Indian Ocean. Warm seas, colourful reefs, and an abundance of sea creatures make this a great place for diving and snorkelling. Children aged 8 and up can learn to dive with our expert team.
At Constance we also offer wind-surfing, kayaking, water-skiing, sailing and more.

The island enjoys a multi-cultural heritage, and it shines through in the eclectic mix of food, festivals, dance, celebrations and temples you’ll find here.
7. Horse racing
Mauritius is home to the oldest race course in the southern hemisphere – The Mauritius Turf Club. Situated at Champ de Mars, Port Louis, it was first established in 1812.
Popular today with locals and tourists, entry is free and attracts crowds of up to 30,000 every Saturday.
