Romantic rooms to add a spark to your stay
The perfect guest room is the foundation of any romantic escape, so it pays to do your research. Are you looking to fuel your passion with fiery rich colours and a cosy atmosphere, or do you prefer billowing white drapes and a minimalist vibe? Whatever your style, Mauritius has a room to suit, whether you’re planning an impromptu proposal, a destination wedding or honeymoon, celebrating an anniversary or simply indulging in some well-deserved alone-time. Here’s five resorts where romance is always top of the list…
Sun – La Pirogue
Arranged in the style of a small fishing village, the thatched volcanic rock bungalows of La Pirogue all have private terraces overlooking the swaying coconut palms and beach. Two Royal Suites, named ‘Flamboyant’ and ‘Bougainvillea’, boast large living and dining areas, Jacuzzi bathrooms and an additional private cove for extra privacy. Guests in search of an extra romantic sparkle can also request a Champagne breakfast on the terrace, beach dinner for two with bonfire and set up, or a special treatment at the Aura Spa.
Maritim Resort & Spa
For the ultimate in romantic seclusion, check in to the 160 sqm private villa at the 5 star Maritim Resort & Spa Mauritius. Exhibiting all the pleasures of a tropical island getaway, the villa offers two modern yet cosy rooms plus a lounge, spacious terraces, private swimming pool and garden overlooking Turtle Bay’s turquoise lagoon. Guests can also benefit from an Exclusive VIP package, including private butler service, a ‘Gourmet Dine Around’ pass, privileged access to a dedicated ‘VIP beach’, and Sunday Brunch at the exquisite 'Château Mon Désir fine dining restaurant. It’s the perfect retreat for romantics everywhere.
Four Seasons at Anahita
Easily one of the most sought-after hotels on the island, Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita’s one bedroom Ocean Villas all have a private pool, with steps leading down from the garden to the shimmering lagoon beyond. A perfect choice for honeymooners or those looking for a romantic escape, the villas offer total peace and serenity and are the ideal spot to enjoy one of the resort’s signature bath rituals such as The Art of Seduction.
Sofitel So Mauritius
Book yourself into an eco-chic ‘Lushury’ room at Sofitel So Mauritius and you’ll never want to leave. Plush Yves Delorme bathrobes and feather-soft MyBeds set the tone for a romantic stay, with an open air shower and private tropical garden broadening the experience into the outdoors. With architecture by Lek Bunnang and interior design by Kenzo Takada, the pure white rooms with playful lime green accents gracefully blend into the natural environment: a beautiful setting for taking a So Lovers batch with scented waters and cocooning yourself beneath the stars.
One&Only Le Saint Géran
Laid back luxury is the name of the game in Le Saint Géran’s Junior beach front suites. Beds are piled high with goose down pillows and covered with Egyptian cotton sheets. Hand selected furniture with interiors inspired by the colours of Indian spices contribute to a feeling of relaxed calm, and the floor to ceiling windows open onto a deep green tropical garden. And couples can relax in the knowledge that every room enjoys personalised 24 hour butler service.
