If you’re near a window, look south-eastwards for a moment. There, 6,000 miles over the horizon, deep in the Indian Ocean, lie the blindingly white palm-edged beaches, blue lagoons, coral reefs, emerald sugar-cane fields and purple mountain peaks of Mauritius. Another world? Yes. But in just 12 hours you could be there on one of our Mauritius holidays.

For today’s faraway holiday preference, a holiday in Mauritius is definitely up there with the leaders. Nature has done its bit, of course, with exotic tropical scenes that will etch themselves on your memory. A stylish gallery of world-class resort hotels adds all the essential creature comforts and leisure pursuits. Scattered along the 205-mile coastline and nestling contentedly beside picture-book beaches, each has its own character. You’ll feel instantly at home. That’s what Mauritius does best.
