Mauritius is a country of extreme beauty that requires at least one visit. While sightseeing and activities can be easily planned, based on the word of mouth or as described on the internet, hotels are a different matter altogether. You can’t trust your agent’s word on it nor can you go by the word of mouth for your requirements may be different from those of your friend. However, there is a set of hotels that you can rely on - the five-star ones. Here are a few 5-star hotels in Mauritius:

1. Beachcomber Royal Palm Hotel

A hotel surrounded by palm trees and white sand, who would not want that? One of the finest places to stay at in Mauritius, this hotel is only 25 km from Port Louis, approx 75 km from the international airport. The courteous staff manages 69 grand suites - each of them exclusive and unique. The elegant interiors and thoughtful design add to the luxury experience. Even if you were to remain indoors, there is plenty to do within the hotel.

2. Constance Le Prince Maurice

One of the leading hotels in the world, Constance Le Prince Maurice was designed by one of the best architects and designers in the world. In Poste de Falcq, towards the northeast coast of the country, it nestles on an idyllic spot only 45 km from the airport. The hotel offers a prime view of a beautiful lagoon while only being 35 km.

3. The Oberoi Mauritius

Another hotel on the northeast coast of the country, Oberoi is absolutely great for honeymooners. Other than that it also houses 4 great national monuments that were actually constructed during the French colonial rule. Only, 15 km from Port Loius, you should not have problems while coming here.
