Paradise Cove – Mauritius

Paradise Cove – Mauritius

Paradise Cove describes itself as a “place of places” – a tranquil hideaway with secluded and hidden spots, within the tropical gardens, up on the cliff top and down on the sheltered private beach. Built around a tiny cove, looking north over uninhabited islands, the resort promises peace, serenity, and precious time to reconnect. Part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, everything has been designed for quiet moments and to relax into the gentle Mauritian way of life.


Find one of the carefully located love nests; sail out to one of the islands, or indulge in a couples treatment at the Spa amongst the intoxicating fragrance of bougainvillea. And then do it all again tomorrow.

rooms

The rooms and suites all have a distinct contemporary colonial vibe, with dark wood and white linen furnishings, and most importantly, a terrace or balcony with views out over the cove. Canopied beds, rattan sofas and louvred shutters, all make for a relaxed and serene atmosphere, and make each one an intimate bolt hole. The Deluxe Premium rooms are spacious with double “You&Me” shower heads, and are perfect for a romantic week or two.


The larger Junior Suites have plenty of space to relax, inside and out, whilst the even larger ground floor Prestige Junior Suites enjoy roomy terraces. The Senior Suites are vast, and give you a choice of two terraces and a whirlpool bath.

food

The choice and range of cuisine is impressive, with four restaurants specialising in distinct flavours and styles, and much of the produce locally grown or sourced. The breezy Dining Room is all about contemporary Mauritian cuisine and plentiful fresh seafood. For sushi, head over to XO, between the main pool and the cove – the tempura is something else! The Cove is more formal and definitely the most romantic, set within swaying palms, next to the lagoon.


And not to be missed is the five course vegan tasting menu created by the Michelin starred chef, Alexis Gauthier. We love the setting of Peninsula, with its terrace looking out over the turquoise waters and islands beyond, and its excellent Mediterranean menu. This is where you’ll be settling in with your sundowners… Paradise Cove also has an extensive wine cellar.

activities

There’s a pretty comprehensive choice of things to do at Paradise Cove, whether you’re after some relaxed couple time, or some more active pastimes. The Spa is a big draw, especially the private couples’ cabin on the peninsula. And the waters of the Indian Ocean beckon with a choice of paddle boarding, kayaking or windsurfing.


Guests can set sail in the hotel’s private catamaran – a day trip to the uninhabited islands with a picnic, explore in a speed boat, or enjoy some of the island’s marine life with a scuba instructor. On dry land, there’s a tennis court – with a coach if you’d like to improve your game, yoga and pilates classes and bikes for wandering further afield. Or rent a car and find one of the hundreds of practically perfect beaches that surround the island. There’s plenty of culture too – the resort is close to the Pamplemousses botanical gardens and sugar plantations of Le Château de Labourdonnais. Then, once the sun has gone down, join in one of the stargazing sessions – the Milky Way is spectacular from here.

family

Leave your children at home and come here as a couple. The resort is adult only, making it ideal for some well-deserved you time, or honeymoon.
