Day by day
Board your overnight flight to Mauritius.
You will be met at the airport by our representative and taken by private road transfer to Grand Baie on the north-west coast.
20 Degrees South is a charming, boutique hotel well placed to discover the restaurants and shops of Grand Baie.
Your first full day at leisure. Before you head down to the sleepy south of the island you might like to explore the island's capital, Port Louis and the renowned Pamplemousse Botanical Gardens as well as L'Aventure du Sucre museum.
The hotel has bicycles you can borrow if you'd like to explore the local area and there's also a choice of watersports at the hotel. The boat shuttle can take you across the bay to Grand Baie for lunch.
Today as you drive to the south of the island to your next hotel, your private driver and guide will take you to explore more of the island on a full day tour. Visit Chateau Labourdonnais a beautifully renovated example of one of the island's French colonial homes and take the time to visit Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens, one of the largest and oldest in the Southern Hemisphere.
Today is yours to enjoy as you wish. There's a great range of watersports at the hotel as well as tennis courts and beach volleyball. If you're looking for something a little more relaxing, the spa is one of the most extensive in the Indian Ocean and there are also yoga and meditation classes.
Why not take a sailing trip to enjoy the clear waters of the ocean surrounding Mauritius and visit some of the small, outlying islands?
The south coast location of Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa means it's well placed to explore the Chamarel Mountains. Today your private driver-guide will collect you from the hotel and take you to the Chamarel region including the rum distillery, as well Bois Cheri Tea Factory and Domaine des Aubineaux, a 19th century colonial house.
Hiring a car is a great way to explore the island independently and meeting some of the charming local people.
Days 10 - 11
