Recent articles in The Sunday Times, OK Magazine and Star Magazine all agree that the white-sand beaches, calm turquoise waters and elegant luxury accommodation make Mauritius a hard destination to beat.

OK and Star Magazine take a look at what attracts celebrities including Davina McCall and Ewan McGregor to the discreet and initmate setting of Constance Le Prince Maurice.

While Susan d’Arcy of The Sunday Times writes:

‘Ten years ago Mauritius was the go-to place in the Indian Ocean. Then the Maldives roundly eclipsed it. But now the island is fighting back… In truth, its beaches, though tropically terrific, are no match for the heart-stopping perfection of those in the Maldives. However, if you’re after a stress-free break, Mauritius fits the bill much better.’

D’Arcy goes on to write that further appeal lies in the ease of the transfer to Mauritian hotels and their extensive dining options as well as access to local culture.
