On this week-long family holiday in Mauritius, you’ll combine relaxing family time on the beach with splashes of adventure and culture for children with itchy feet.

Mauritius is an island that has long held a luxury appeal and we’ll make you and your family feel like VIPs from the get-go. The warm smile of your private driver will greet you at the airport and they’ll introduce your senses to Mauritius by offering you local soft drinks, traditional baked goods and a scented towel infused with flowers like bougainvillea, hibiscus and frangipani. Children will also get a gift, such a bracelet featuring a map of Mauritius or island-themed colouring book. On the way to your resort, your driver will chat to you about the island and recall interesting anecdotes about places as you pass them by.

Your base for your week-long luxury escape to Mauritius will be Shangri-La Le Touessrok, an east-coast hideaway overflowing with island exoticism. With six beaches, there’s plenty of space for families to stretch out. Its kids’ clubs are among the best on the island, with the T-Club (perfect for 4-11 year olds) a clubhouse and gardens where youngsters can let their imaginations go wild. For older children, the Teen Club is excellent, with the nearby Ile aux Cerfs a water-sports paradise. There’s plenty outside of the kids’ clubs to keep young ones busy, whether it’s going stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking from the resort’s beach or going to the nearby Domaine de l’Etoile nature reserve, where they can burn energy hiking, quad-biking or zip-lining.

We know special family meals can be a rare occurrence, which is why we’ve made sure you can all reconnect over an exclusive seafood dinner at the Beach Restaurant on the resort’s private island Ilot Mangénie. When the kids get restless of the beach, a pair of full-day guided tours will introduce the whole family to the island’s culture and adventure. You can try Mauritian snacks like dhal puri and maize pudding at the bustling food markets of Port Louis and sit down for an authentic Creole lunch with a Mauritian family.

You’ll be wowed by the island’s natural beauty and the day tours will have you exploring its emerald heart, from the pristine jungle on a Black River Gorges National Park tour to seeping waterfalls and crater lakes shrouded in mystery. You’ll cruise along Mauritius’ east coast in a speedboat for a day of snorkelling among hawksbill turtles, swimming in the millpond-calm waters off Ile aux Aigrettes and enjoying a family seafood lunch on the beach of Île aux Cerfs. Also pick between the east and west coast for a thrilling ride on a speedboat, which will have you all keeping your eyes peeled for dolphins or snorkelling among hawksbill turtles and rainbow-hued fish. Undoubtedly, the stand-out of your family holiday in Mauritius will be a thrilling helicopter ride over the entire island, where you’ll have the chance to spot on of Mauritius’ most beguiling sights, its underwater waterfall.

Overlooking the shimmering Trou d’Eau Douce Bay, it’s never difficult to seek out a secluded corner among the resort’s six velvet-smooth beaches and palm-speckled tropical gardens.

Palm-flanked paths weave through exotic foliage to the rooms, suites and villas, all of which are housed within Mediterranean-style whitewashed buildings. Total relaxation is the priority here: you can while away the hours with fruit skewers and bowls of sorbet delivered to you on the beach and be safe in the knowledge a round-the-clock butler is on hand to help with your every need from the comfort of your suite.

Based on two adults and two children, you and your family will be staying in a Junior Suite Hibiscus Ocean View on a half-board basis. They’re incredibly spacious, only a stone’s throw from the main pool and boast glorious Indian Ocean views. However, upgrade options are available and our Travel Designers would be delighted to discuss these with you in greater detail.
