The Paradis Hotel and Golf Resort

The vibrant yet chic Paradis Hotel and Golf Resort is one of the jewels in the crown of Mauritius hotels. Located in the south west at Le Morne Peninsula the resort occupies one of the islands most spectacular settings. There is a massive range of complimentary land and water sports, dining at 7 restaurants and an 18 hole golf course, with luxury accommodation, and 5km of white sandy beach.

There is a superb choice of luxurious accommodation, all complimented with typical Mauritian architecture and furnishings. There are ten different room categories including suites and luxurious and spacious villas, ideal for family looking for an extra special holiday.

The superior and luxury rooms are all very spacious at 50sq m and have terraces or balconies which overlook the Indian Ocean or the Paradis Lagoon. Interconnecting rooms are available, and they will easily accommodate 2 adults and a child under 12.

The more spacious Junior and Beach front Junior Suites are all 76 sq m, and positioned in a horse shoe formation, facing the ocean. Again they have a large terrace or balcony and are available interconnecting.

For families, there are some excellent family suites, which are twice the size of the junior suites, with two bedrooms and an open plan seating area. There are also two outdoor terraces and they can accommodate 2 adults and 3 children.

The luxury family suites are larger still, with a bigger room for Mum and Dad. The second bedroom is great for younger children, and again there are two outdoor terraces.

If you are a couple traveling for a special celebration, then one of the 4 deluxe suites, or 8 senior suites is an excellent choice, with larger bedrooms, more spacious seating areas and terraces or balconies. They are also located closer to the beach.

Finally the villas at Paradis are rivaled across the island. The executive villa's are 275 sq m with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which have beautiful outdoor showers, great for hosing sand off children! The Presidential Villa is 450 sq m and accommodates up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms. The most appealing feature of the villas is the butler service and fully equipped kitchen. Your private butler will do your shopping, lay out breakfast, and arrange a chef for your personal use if you don't fancy dinner or lunch in one of the restaurants of the resort. The service is excellent yet unobtrusive with your every need being pandered to!

The restaurants in the Paradis are as varied as the accommodation, with choices from international buffet, to Italian, Sea food or Creole. There are 7 to choose from in total, and you can also use the facilities at the neighbouring Dinarobin. The fantastic Blue Marlin restaurant is an ideal location right on the beach close to the water skiing which is always guaranteed to keep you entertained while enjoying a lazy lunch.

Other facilities are also wide ranging, including complimentary land and water sports such as waterskiing, pedaloes, sailing, snorkeling, tennis and boulles. A scuba diving center and 18 hole championship golf course are also located at the hotel for those wanting a little more excitement!

Finally after all that luxury accommodation, fine dining and activity in your luxury hotel in Mauritius, you can relax in the Clarins Spa at the Dinarobin Hotel next door. It's well worth a half day of rest and relaxation ....... An excellent way to prepare for your evening meal!
