Mauritius is the perfect paradise for a bespoke beach holiday

Mauritius is a very diverse island nation – the product of an interesting history with stunning beaches and superb resorts.

Located 1250 miles off the African Coastline, Mauritius is a stunning island getaway in the South West Indian Ocean. Full of warm and friendly people, chic resorts that define immaculate service, and sugar plantations running into white sand beaches, Mauritius is also home a remarkable number of quite exceptional luxury hotels.

Mauritius Holidays are where those dreams of luxuriating on a castaway island in the middle the sun-kissed Indian Ocean become a reality. There can be few places in the world with such a condensed selection of luxury hotels. And they have for a long time now, set the benchmarks for service, style and facilities – that the hospitality sectors in the rest of Africa and the Indian Ocean strive to follow.

Croissants every day for breakfast, tennis or championship golf in the morning followed by spa treatments and water-sports in the afternoon. And in the evenings fine dining in world class restaurant overlooking the ocean. Its hard to find fault in that day!

Mauritius is a very diverse island nation – the product of an interesting history. Its location between the Cape of Good Hope and Indian subcontinent has made it a stopping point for traders and explorers for nearly a thousand years. Today's population comprises people of European, African, Indian and Chinese origin – who originally arrived during the various population movements of the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. The result is an island with a unique blend of different races, cultures and religions – which all flourish in peace and harmony. For anyone interested in learning more about the island – Richard Hall’s book ‘Empires of the Monsoon’ is excellent.

January

January is prone to cyclones and rain, so if you're looking for a beach holiday this is not a reliable time to travel.

Expand

February

February is the most active period during the cyclone season in Mauritius, so we would avoid travelling at this time

Expand

March

In March the weather is hot and humid, with sporadic rainfall as the end of the cyclone season comes to a close. It is a popular time for travellers as the temperatures aren't too high.

Expand

April

If you're wanting to travel in April expect hot weather with temperatures rising to 30 degrees with increasing humidity levels.

Expand

May

May is one of the best and most popular month to travel to Mauritius, with temperatures hovering over the 25 degrees mark, with easing humidity making for a comfortable climate.

Expand

June

During June the temperatures cool to 24 degrees due to the trade winds on the east and south coast of Mauritius, offering warm and sunny days.

Expand

July

The temperatures cool again in July, as the trade winds pick up making some of the more open beaches less sheltered and breezy. It is a popular time to travel due to the summer holidays starting in the Northern Hemisphere.

Expand

August

Much like July, August experiences increased winds with warm days perfect for watersports and the islands more sheltered beaches. During the evenings temperatures become cooler and you may appreciate a few more layers.

Expand

September

In September the trade winds die down and temperatures rise once again, making it the perfect time for snorkelling as diving as the water clarity increases thanks to the calm weather conditions.

Expand

October

October is the islands driest month with temperatures exceeding 25 degrees. If you love nature Mauritius is overflowing with exotic flowers and wildlife as everything comes into bloom, making it the best time for mountain hikes and trips to the country's national parks.

Expand

November

In November temperatures start to rise again, as does the humidity as the country progresses into its cyclone season. The weather can be unpredictable with small rain showers, meaning it is still a good time to travel to Mauritius.

Expand

December

As the festive season looms, December is one of the busiest months for visitors in Mauritius. As humidity builds up, heavy rain showers occur helping lowering the humidity and clearing the heavy skies.
