Original Highlight

Learning to water-ski was hair-raising at first, but thrilling once I got to grips with it.

LUXURY MAURITIUS HOLIDAYS

The real difficulty with a luxury holiday to Mauritius is not in choosing if, but where to stay, which is where we come in. Original Travel consultants have selflessly visited all the best hotels on the island to see for themselves which would work best given your specific requirements. Somewhere small and boutiquey? A resort with an outstanding kids club? We know them all. Away from the pampered environs of your hotel, there's also plenty to do for the non sun-worshipper - we can arrange diving in pristine coral gardens, snorkelling, sailing or sea kayaking for waterbabies.

Land-lubbers can play golf or visit the celebrated Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens (although we almost prefer the official name - Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Gardens) and the colourful market in the capital Port Louis. Another tick in the Mauritius 'pro' column? It makes for an excellent 'bush and beach' combination with South Africa.
