Constance Le Prince Maurice, Mauritius

Occupying a 60-acre site with three beaches and its own lagoon, this is arguably the most aesthetically beautiful of all the properties on Mauritius.

Isabel is here to help give you the inside track.

The suites have a colonial feel with polished teak floors, dark wooden Venetian blinds, louvred doors and hessian-lined ceilings. Some suites have indoor and outdoor bathrooms as well as two terraces over the lagoon, one with loungers to sleep on, the other with a table and chairs to eat at.

The service is excellent, and if you're lying on a sun-bed by the 120-foot pool for longer than about 10 minutes an attendant will bring you not just iced water and a towel, but an Evian spray to refresh your face. Lie on the beach mid-afternoon and someone will appear with a little tub of sorbet.

Opt for a treatment in the Guerlain spa, and find a bowl of ylang-ylang blossoms under the face cut-out on the massage table so that you have something to reflect on as you lie prone.

There are excellent facilities and activities on offer from diving and water-skiing to tennis, and the two restaurants serve delicious Mauritian-influenced and international cuisine.

Why we love it

The hotel is the only one on the island to have suites built on stilts over the water, although the majority of the suites are actually on dry land.
