A Mauritius holiday is only a 4 hour flight from Johannesburg. SAA and Air Mauritius flies between Johannesburg and Mauritius daily and British Airways fly once a week, every Saturday. Air Mauritius has 2 – 3 direct flights from Cape Town as well as Durban every week. No visas or inoculations are needed for South African citizens, which makes it a hassle free holiday. Mauritius is also a malaria free area.
Service levels and standard of hotels in Mauritius
The service levels of the staff and standard of the hotels will exceed all of your expectations. We as South Africans are used to good standard of accommodation and always have to be wary of what we book when visiting certain destinations. When it comes to Mauritius you can book a 3* hotel without having to worry about what you are going to get. Just make sure that your hotel is located on the beach, as some 3* hotels are located across the road from the beach.
If what you are after is total bliss and luxury to the max, then look no further. The selection of 5* and 5* plus properties are endless. You will most definitely find something perfect for your taste. The 4*and 5*hotels has more than one restaurant on their premises. You can wine and dine the evening away and spend the whole day relaxing next to the beach or pool with exquisite views.
The best time to visit Mauritius
The best time to visit Mauritius is from May to December when the weather is cool, dry and sunny. The island has a classic tropical climate with warm weather year-round.
