Hotel in Mauritius

Overview
Beautiful lagoons, radically shaped volcanic mountains, and a cultural cocktail of Euro-Asian inhabitants make Mauritius—a small nation some 2,000 km (1,242 miles) east of the African continent—more than just a swanky resort getaway. Although you can relax on some of the world’s most breathtaking beaches, you’ll also find grand plantation mansions that evoke the island’s colonial past, Hindu shrines adorned with marigolds, national parks abundant with exotic animals and plants, and delicious cuisine that fuses Creole and French flavors.

SIGHTS


BLACK RIVER GORGES NATIONAL PARK
Located in the hilly south-western region of the island, Black River Gorges is the largest protected forest of Mauritius and a sanctuary for about 300 species of plants. It's also home to about 50 km (31 miles) of gorgeous hiking trails. The park has four access points: the Black River entrance and Case Noyale entrance on the west coast; La Marie entrance in Plaine Wilhems, and Chamouny entrance in the south. If you are not keen to explore the deeper trails, you can easily stroll closer to the visitor center and make the most of the kiosks, ideal for picnics.
CAUDAN WATERFRONT
This waterfront complex of designer boutiques, cinemas, and restaurants is the place to stroll and shop in Port Louis. Great bargains on Mauritian products, like handmade glasses, artworks, and essential oils can be found here while enjoying a walk along the promenade that faces the harbor. The 120 shops offer a wide range of products from luxurious body care products and duty-free jewelry to hand-crafted souvenirs and international-brand textiles. The waterfront is an authentic melting-pot with numerous restaurants offering Indian, Asian, and Mauritius cuisine.
EUREKA HOUSE
Built in 1830, the Eureka House was formerly owned by British and French aristocrats. During those times, it was among the island’s biggest houses. It now offers a glimpse of colonial history in Mauritius. The Eureka House also organizes eco adventures around the acres of beautiful nature reserve, as well as themed evenings, conferences, and weddings. Visitors can enjoy a stroll in the huge, pretty garden. Guided tours are available Monday through Saturday 9–5, and Sunday 9 –3:30. It's a simple site that's worth a stop.
L'AVENTURE DU SUCRE
The sugar industry, along with tourism, is one of the nation's main industries. In fact, some 80% of the island is under plantation. The L'Aventure du Sucre interactive museum, located in the town of Pamplemousses just north of Port Louis, sheds light on the history of the crop, the story of the slaves brought in to work in the cane fields, and the abolition of slavery following the British defeat of the French in the early 1800s. Located behind the historic facade of an old sugar mill, the tour takes about 90 minutes and finishes with sugar and rum tastings. Visitors can combine a visit to the museum with the lovely nearby botanic gardens, known as the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanic Gardens.
SIR SEEWOOSAGUR RAMGOOLAM (SSR) BOTANICAL GARDEN
Stretched over endless acres with more than 800 varieties of plants, this botanical garden, settled in the heart of Pamplemousses, is a refreshing oasis for those wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle of Port-Louis. It's particularly famed for its giant Victoria amazonica water lilies, whose gargantuan leaves can expand to three meters in diameter. One of the garden’s distinctive features is also the amazing Talipot—a plant that flowers only once every 30 to 100 years. Families and groups of tourists usually like to gather among the palm trees and have a picnic before paying a visit to the “Samadhi,” the tomb of the island’s first Prime minister, also known as the Father of the Nation.
