A revamped resort with two beaches and uber cool interiors with a hint of African influence.

LUX* Grand Gaube

  • 7 Nights
  • Room & Breakfast
  • Superior Room
  • Return flights from London Gatwick  

LUX* Grand Gaube has had its interior décor whipped into shape by renowned interior designer, Kelly Hoppen. She has cast her stylish wand over the rooms, accenting gallery-white walls with a fashionably eclectic mix of woven African baskets, hand-made ceramics, vintage rattan furniture and geometric tiles. Look out for cool Gouzou illustrations by French street artist Jace and bold wall murals by Camille Walala throughout the retreat.

This Indian Ocean escape wraps invitingly around a cove at the northern tip of Mauritius. Glorious ocean vistas provide dreamy backdrops for all the African-influenced rooms and suites. Lush gardens of bougainvillae and banyans cocoon a spa, tennis courts, two swimming pools, fitness centre and golf course. Pick from two stunning beaches: caramel crescents of sand edged by palms. The bathwater-warm lagoon is the perfect spot to while away an afternoon; grab one of the hotel’s inflatable pink flamingos for the Instagram money shot.

This is one for lovers of fine food and drink: six restaurants take you on a gastronomic journey from South American flavours at INTI (don’t miss the fresh ceviche) to authentic Creole cuisine at Banyan and a Turkish twist at Bodrum Blue. There’s no impersonal vibe like with some big chain hotels – staff will greet you by name and you’ll be spoilt in the exceptional LUX★ fashion. 

Set back from an unspoilt beach, this new Anantara resort has a remote feel and an enviable setting next to the Blue Bay Marine Park.

Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas (5*)

  • 7 Nights
  • Room & Breakfast
  • Superior Room
  • Selected dates in May 2025 
  • From £1650 per person 

This Anantara resort, which is located down in the southeastern corner of the island is a new addition to Mauritius’s breathtaking coast. We love that the hotel is set back from a wonderfully wild and untouched beach at the western end of the Blue Bay Marine Park; it has that longed-for remote feeling that makes it hard to believe that you’re 10 minutes away from the airport. The resort is modern in style but with a nod to the style of the island with exposed dark brick walls that are complemented with light and natural tones and fresh white furnishings.

Your days could begin with a sunrise stroll along Le Chaland beach followed by a hearty breakfast at Horizon, the resort’s all-day restaurant. You’ll then have all day to make the most of the locally-inspired excursions like the tour of the winding and narrow lanes of Mahebourg and the visit to a tea plantation and rum factory. Back at the resort, dinner is served at Horizon, the signature restaurant Sea. Fire. Salt., and both lunch and dinner are available at the clean-eating venue Bon Manzer. Between meals, island explorations and underwater adventures in the nearby marine park, we recommend making sure there’s time to spend at the Anantara Spa. The wellness space at Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas is a tropical retreat where you can indulge in treatments using natural products and traditional hammam rituals. And if that's not enough, there are a host of included experiences that you can take part in during the day, from pre-breakfast yoga or cross fit and energetic forest walks to Creole lessons, smoothie making classes and evening wine tasting sessions.

The rooms, suites and villas are a haven of calm, with cool white décor and crisp sheets accented with a pop of dark blue thanks to the soft furnishings. Premier Garden Rooms overlook the gardens from the upper floors while the ground floor Deluxe Garden Rooms open out onto the grass. We recommend opting for a room or suite with a sea view like the Deluxe Ocean View Rooms and the Ocean View Suites, or one that’s on the ground floor and is just a short walk away from the sand. There are also villas that have two or four bedrooms, large living areas and lots of outdoor space with a private pool.
