Advise on May trip
Save

Out family (2 adults and a 5 y/o) want to go on May 2022 to Mauritius. We wanted to divide the trip in 3. Initially 3-4 nights to explore and 8 to relax by the beach. Would staying on the 3 lux properties be worth it? We were looking at lux gran gaube for 4 nights, 4 on all inclusive at le morne and 4 at belle mare. Does this make sense? How is the weather on early may? Any other hotel recommendations or suggestions? Any t specialist who has better rates than directly with the hotel? Thank you in advance.

May is generally a good time of the year to go. It is summer without the humidity.

Belle Mare and Le Morne are isolated areas so AI makes sense for both these two areas.

Mauritius is generally a small island, so although two centre stay might be worth doing, a three centre stay with a young family might be pushing it.

You could look at the the north and east of the island for example.

3 Lux properties would work well, all on different coasts.

Lux Le Morne is close to attractions such as Grand Bassin, Black River Gorges Nation Park etc so would be an ideal base to explore some of the attractions Mauritius holds.

Lux Belle Mare in on a beautiful beach - see my photos here:

Lux Grand Gaube is ideal for relaxing and even exploring the north and north east of the island.

Get quotes from Lux themselves and then compare with a travelcompany.

As you are in the US look at US based travel companies.

One UK based online company:
