Mauritius

Pamplemousses Botanical Garden

Mauritius is the island for sun worshippers. White sand beaches that seem to stretch for miles, friendly smiles wherever you go and a climate that, virtually year round, is almost unbeatable. In some hotels the rooms are so large they feel like suites. The watersports on offer are many and varied.

Please ask if the property you require is not featured. Mauritius and Réunion two-centre holidays are a speciality of ours.

Pamplemousses Botanical Garden, Mauritius
