Where to stay for Mauritius holidays
You can book your holiday at a certified COVID-19 safe hotel through your tour operator, travel agent or directly with the hotel. If you are not fully vaccinated, consult the list of quarantine hotels made available for visitors.
At LUX* Grand Gaube Resort & Villas, families or smaller groups may opt to stay in private villas or residences to ensure their seclusion. Hassle-free, all-inclusive packages start from EUR453 for two people per night.
What’s more, the resort has launched Collectable Experiences such as Hug Me Honey and New Habits Wellness Routine to keep guests entertained. The 14ha resort is home to more than 240,000 honeybees. The bee apiary produces around 16kg of honey annually. It is used at the resort’s six restaurants and seven bars as well as in treatments for LUX* Me Spa. Take a guided tour of the eight hives with the resident honey expert and take home a beekeeping kit if you are keen to try to build your own urban bee apiary.
If you’re up for creating new healthy habits, why not learn to cook a raw dessert or develop a routine of journaling and meditating daily?

Four-star Mauritius holidays
Tamarina Golf & Spa Boutique Hotel is on the west coast, not far from the village of Tamarin, and overlooking its incredible beach. Play golf, gaze at the sunset sipping a cocktail or cool off on the lagoon. This is how memories are made in Mauritius. Prices start from EUR140 per night.
Tamassa, one word for “good times”. Well, not really. It’s actually derived from a Hindi word used in Mauritian Creole.
It means festive and sounds like the beating of the traditional tam-tam drum. It’s the rallying call for friends and family to gather, reflect and reconnect with each other. All-inclusive Tamassa has its own set of Collectable Experiences too, like cooking a Mauritian meal with the chef or painting on a giant canvas under the trees at the beach.
To be able to enjoy their confirmed holiday, tourists must have a PCR test on the day they arrive as well as days 7 and 14. They can move around the island if they produce a negative PCR test on the last day.
