According to Mark Twain, God copied the idea of heaven from Mauritius. On this basis, heaven must be a fairly sophisticated and glamorous affair. If the stunning 5 star hotels, pure white sands, swaying palm trees and aquamarine waters offered by Mauritius are not enough to make you feel like you are in paradise, then you will also find a spectacular array of extra curricular activities on offer, including golf, world class diving and snorkelling, unlimited water sports, deep- sea fishing, spa treatments and numerous nightlife options. As with other destinations in the Indian Ocean, the cuisine and culture reflect a real fusion of different cultures; African, French, Creole, Muslim, Chinese and Hindu, making it all the more interesting. The level of service and hospitality is also impeccable.
Mauritius offers the serenity of a desert island without the isolation and with every available comfort known to man and thrown in for good measure. A tailor made holiday here will truly make you feel like you have died and gone to heaven.
