An island made for lovers, in the heart of the Indian Ocean, famed for powder-white beaches and shimmering crystal-clear waters, it's not hard to see why Mauritius is honeymoon heaven. Post-wedding bliss starts here; laze on loungers by the shimmering sea and dip your toes into the water to cool off during the heat of the day. Swap those wedmin worries for boat trips complete with a spot of lunchtime deck-snoozing and snorkelling.
The diving here is sublime and tempts many a newlywed into the water and deep beneath the waves. Exploring the rest of the island is a must, if you can drag yourselves away from the shore. Stroll through beautiful botanical gardens or busy street markets. Head off the beaten track to hike in the forested, mountainous heart of the island and keep an eye out of the many natural treasures and wondrous wildlife. A match made in heaven, Mauritius honeymoons are the perfect place to start married life.

What can you expect on Mauritius honeymoons that you won't find anywhere else?
In the pantheon of picture-perfect honeymoon destinations, Mauritius features pretty highly, complete with textbook swaying palms, white sand beaches and unspoiled reefs. Add in an intriguing and distinct local culture blending influences from the various nautical visitors over the centuries and some of the best beaches to be found anywhere, and this is an exceptional destination for a luxury honeymoon. Mauritius is so well geared to honeymooners' requirements that the real difficulty is not in choosing if, but where, to stay. That's where we come in. Original Travel consultants have selflessly visited all the most immaculate hotels on the beautiful island to see for themselves which would work best given your specific budget and ideas.
Away from the pampered environs of your hotel, there's also plenty to do once you tire of sun-worship. We can arrange diving in pristine coral gardens, snorkelling, sailing and sea kayaking for waterbabies. Land-lubbers can play golf or visit the celebrated Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens (although we prefer the official name - the 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' honeymoon combination with South Africa.
