Off the beaten track adventures are also available for those with an insatiable thirst to explore. Simply put, the days are divine, but the nights emit their own magic. Picture overwater dining and gourmet cuisine, followed by music and dancing under the soft glow of stars.
As Mauritius’ very first luxury hotel, One&Only opted for the best of locations, making the island’s gorgeous northeast its home. Though not in close proximity to any external attractions, the mile-long white sand beaches, 60-acre gardens and unique excursions promise enough to keep any guest entertained.
The property’s 142 spacious rooms and suites come with ocean or cove-facing verandas, contemporary design and elegant, yet homely interior decor. Sole 2-bed mansion, Villa One is easily the most lavish of stays but also one of the most costly across the island.
Who is it for
With 2-3 bedroom suites, interconnecting rooms and a considerate kids club and teen spa on offer, this is a great option for families. However, the exceptional level of luxury here makes it equally accommodating to couples seeking a romantic rendezvous.
Facilities & activities
Alongside Club One, three infinity pools, state-of-the-art sports and fitness facilities and an exquisite pool-facing spa, the resort boasts the best boathouse on the island set on a tranquil lagoon. Diners have access to four authentic restaurants, ample spots for private dining and the cosy new L’Artisan bakery boutique.
