Set on a quiet stretch of white sand beach – Tamarin Mountain provides a rugged backdrop – on the island’s warmer, sheltered west coast. Maradiva feels peaceful and private, yet it’s only 30 minutes’ walk along the beach – or a quick taxi ride – to bustling Flic en Flac. Don’t miss an early morning swim with the dolphin pod in Tamarin Bay.
Originally a Taj hotel, Maradiva’s architecture now reflects the island’s mixed heritage. With cathedral ceilings, earthy yellow and ochre walls and polished Madagascan Rosewood floors, it’s luxurious without being showy. Voted the Leading Resort in Mauritius in the World Travel Awards 2013, its spacious ayurvedic spa resembles a temple, with Indian artefacts and cascading pools shaded by frangipani and hibiscus. It’s tempting to just hang out here or in the villa all day.
The 65 elegant pool villas are discreetly hidden from view and arranged on avenues radiating between the main parts of the hotel and the beach, so nowhere is too far to walk. Guests spend most of their time on the large verandah, with plunge pool (some private enough to skinny dip) and daybed. The more affordable garden villas have the loveliest views of Tamarin Mountain, framed by exotic flowers and trees.
