Finding the right hotel is easy: with just one search on TravelSupermarket, you can compare deals from across the web...
Set like an emerald amid the vast blues of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is a holiday paradise like no other. The familiar ingredients are all there: the sweeping arcs of white sands; crystalline waters that roll gently onto pillow-soft beaches; low-rise hotels that lounge between palm trees; and just enough attractions to fill a few hours between lazing, swimming, reading and unwinding.
But here, British, French, Chinese, Indian and African influences have all left their mark. You can taste it in the cuisine, especially the fiery Creole dishes, and see it at French-style chateaux and Eureka House, a British-built colonial mansion.
Mother Nature left an enduring legacy for Mauritius too. The world’s third-largest coral reef loops around the island, protecting those sensational beaches, while inland wonders include lava-bed rivers, wooded peaks, rainforests and some of the rarest flora and fauna on the planet – the famed dodo nested here until the demise of the species some 350 years ago.
Add all of this to a warm tropical climate and you’ll understand the lure of Mauritius hotels.

Ready to Travel Super in Mauritius? Then let’s find an amazing place to stay…
Mauritius is prime honeymoon territory. Soothing spa treatments, five-star dining, and romantic suites overlooking the ocean… romance rarely comes in a finer package. Of course, you don’t have to be fresh from the aisle to book a hotel in Mauritius. Families love it here, for the range of facilities on offer and the chance to relax together in the sunshine. And couples of all ages enjoy the chilled-out vibes of Mauritius, whether they’re celebrating their first year together or 20 years of happiness (and the first holiday without the kids).
Holidays are generally hotel based, with most of the dining, drinking, activities and uncoiling from the daily grind carried out within the confines of the hotel grounds. So spending some time to find the right hotel will pay off when you’re having the holiday of your lives.
Use the search and comparison powers of TravelSupermarket to select the perfect place to stay. You can filter our hotel deals by star rating, guest rating, price, board basis and other essentials, such as free WiFi and the availability of spas and kids clubs.
Then use our map view to pinpoint the hotel of your dreams in the right area. Will you stay in Grand Baie, in the north of the island, which is well developed and packed with luxury hotels? Nearby Anse La Raie is much quieter, though hotels are equally resplendent. Some feature suites on stilts that hover over the flawless lagoon waters. Close by, Grand Gaube is just as peaceful, just as gorgeous, just as perfect for quiet holidays in the sun.
Looking to the west coast of Mauritius, hotels can also be booked in Flic en Flac. It has more restaurants and shops than smaller resorts and features one of the island’s biggest beaches, which means you can walk for a while and put a 100-metre radius between you and the next living soul. For some visitors, that’s pure bliss.
Belle Mare, in the east-coast area of Quatre Cocos, is popular with families who enjoy the high life. Excellent hotels, one of the island’s best beaches, world-class golf and Le Waterpark and Leisure Village make this a perfect choice for family holidays in Mauritius.
Other resorts on Mauritius include Mahebourg, which is small and buzzing with some budget hotel options, luxurious Bel Ombre, Trou d’Eau Douce, which offers easy access to Ile aux Cerfs and more low-cost hotel choices, and Le Morne, where a giant peak is a stunning backdrop for breezy sports, such as kite surfing and paragliding.
Popular with crowds looking for winter sun, the humid months between October and April are the busiest time in Mauritius. Cheap hotel deals in Mauritius are therefore easier to come by between May and October, when dry and hot weather dominates.
Don’t lose the deal of your dreams if you’re not ready to book. My Suitcase on TravelSupermarket lets you save deals, create trips, track price changes and share plans – because planning should be fun, not stressful!
Cheap Mauritius hotels, easy planning, never missing a deal: it pays to search wider, plan smarter and Travel Super with TravelSupermarket.
It’s worth hiring a car in Mauritius as there is plenty to see and do on the island…
