Beautiful sandy beaches, romantic hotels and epic landscapes – this Mauritius honeymoon itinerary takes you to all the best spots on this picture-perfect island.
Infinity pools, private villas, stunning beaches and romantic resorts – welcome to the best honeymoon hotels in Mauritius.
Mauritius is one of the top destinations for honeymooners, and after visiting, I totally understand why! While there are plenty of white sandy beaches and relaxation options, there’s an adventurous side to the island too. Spend your honeymoon trying out some new water sports, diving, hiking through the diverse landscapes or spotting wildlife in its natural habitat.
From exploring the colourful capital, paddle boarding and cooking traditional food, to sampling the island’s top rums, checking out the natural wonders and relaxing on paradise beaches, there are plenty of amazing things to do in Mauritius!
Find out if Mauritius really lives up to those paradise images you have in your mind, as I check out newly renovated luxury hotel, Heritage Le Telfair Golf and Wellness Resort.
After exploring a lot of the Caribbean over the last few years, I was excited to venture to another corner of paradise. After a 12 hour flight from London I reached Mauritius – and from our arrival over turquoise waters and epic mountains, I could already see that this was a place where the photos would take themselves!
Our check in at Heritage Le Telfair Golf and Wellness Resort, a hotel on the south of the island, was no ordinary one. After an intensive three-month renovation project, that evening over 500 people would gather on the property to toast its chic new look. Incredible dancers, beautiful imagery, lighting, soundscapes and gourmet food combined to create a night none of us would forget in a hurry. I started to wonder if they threw extravagant parties like this every night!
By day two, it was business as usual, and over the next week we found time to enjoy the luxurious pools, relax on the beach and explore the impressive grounds, taking part in pilates, sunset yoga, a golf initiation, stand up paddle boarding, a cooking class and dining at pretty much all of the resort’s restaurants. So, whether you’re looking for a paradise getaway and can’t decide where to jet off to next, or you’re already considering Heritage Le Telfair, here’s a rundown of what to expect.
Heritage Le Telfair Golf and Wellness Resort: Hotel Overview
This hotel offers 5-star luxury in stunning surroundings. The south is seen as the wilder, more secluded and authentic part of the island. While for me, this was a big selling point, some may prefer being nearer the main towns and closer to the action. With its own stretch of white sandy beach protected by a reef, two large pools (one of them heated which is ideal for visits in cooler months) several restaurants, a brand new wellness centre, tonnes of activities and an 18-hole championship golf course, it’s perfect whether you want to relax or keep active. Its sister property, Heritage Awali, is next door, and provides extra options of restaurants, including a great Indian restaurant and Coco Shack – a cute beach hut selling fresh coconuts and cocktails. In terms of location, you’re a short drive from a few of the island’s natural wonders – the Seven Coloured Earths, Chamarel Waterfall, and Black River Gorges National Park.
