Le Prince Maurice is a quintessential tropical escape—a pristine paradise set in nearly 150 acres of an exotic garden. Located on an isolated peninsula and surrounded by stunning beaches and a tranquil lagoon, this five-star hotel offers the luxury of utter seclusion in a remote paradise. But that’s not where the luxuries end—each of the en-suite rooms and suites (4 Junior suites, 12 Family suites, 12 Villas and 1 Princely Suite) offers a deluge of amenities including air-conditioning, an Apple Mac Mini, satellite TV, wireless Internet access and minibar, not to mention your choice of range of pillows from their “pillow menu.” The décor evokes the exotic allure of the Spice Route, with luxuriant colors and creative wooden furniture. The hotel offers luxury suites spread out harmoniously either along the brilliant white sand, nestled in the lush tropical flora, facing the sea or standing out majestically on stilts. Outside the hotel, activities will jockey for your attention: windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling trips, bicycling, kayaking, glass-bottom boat excursions, waterskiing and more. The spa may call to you, or you may wish to hit the greens: you’re just a short drive from two 18-hole golf courses. As you venture through the hotel, the air is redolent with spice: the hotel offers wide array of Mauritian-influenced and international cuisine prepared by top chefs (you can even learn their secrets at a cookery class here).
