Capturing The Heart Of Mauritius
As an integral part of the Spice Route between East and West, travellers have been lured to the island of Mauritius for more than 500 years. With its idyllic location in the Indian Ocean, and named for spice trade pioneer, Prince Maurice Van Nassau, Mauritius has been influenced by a multitude of cultures, and enjoys a diversity of climate and a peaceful ambience that distinguishes this tropical volcanic jewel from the rest of the Indian Ocean Islands.
There is a lot to do in Mauritius, with a wonderful blend of land-based and water activities. You could embark on a safari adventure to the Casela Nature Park, home to 1,500 birds, wild animals and dromedary camels. For those who enjoy water-based activities, you can opt for a sea walk on the ocean floor, in just three to four metres of water, and enjoy the magnificent marine life. For those with a passion for retail, shopping in the capital, Port-Louis, provides everything from small boutiques to large malls, and is just 40 minutes’ drive from Constance Le Prince Maurice.

Situated on 60 hectares of completely unspoilt private land, sheltered from the prevailing winds and ensuring maximum privacy for its guests, its tropical gardens consist of rare and luxuriant vegetation, while the calm turquoise lagoon blends perfectly with the fresh green hinterland and the secluded beaches of brilliant white sand.
Cuisine is as varied as all aspects of life in Mauritius. Foodies can enjoy various cuisines in many restaurants scattered on this island, especially at Le Barachois, a unique seafood restaurant comprising five decks, floating among the natural fish reserve, which is reached via a wooden pathway.
