Paradise Cove Boutique Hotel

Built around a pretty cove as its name suggests, this boutique hideaway on the northeast coast of Mauritius, has a stunning view of the Northern Islands.

Paradise Cove Boutique Hotel is on its own peninsula with no public access, it’s peaceful and private. An adult-only, it’s romantic, so a good choice for honeymooners and couples, who can eat seafood in thatched kiosks around the pretty cove at night, loll in the lovely clifftop infinity pool and go on gourmet picnics. The hotel has loads of cosy areas for couples to sit in, and seawater jacuzzis in the waterfall tumbling into the cove. The warm staff – many who have been here for 25 years – know guests by name.

 

Paradise Cove Boutique Hotel was fully renovated at the end of 2019 and the new plantation-style décor is very well done. The new food choice is also impressive. Four restaurants range from Mauritian fusion cuisine at the main restaurant and sushi in a new thatched cabana next to the main pool and tapas-style cuisine at the Peninsula Restaurant.

 

The 75 sea-facing rooms and suites are painted white, with elegant yet homely plantation-style furniture including muslin-draped four poster beds. The deluxe rooms are fine, if on the small side, so if you can afford it, go for a junior suite, with extra sitting room. I’d recommend the fabulous, bigger senior suites, for an extended stay.

 

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, I rate it as a boutique 5*. Facilities offers four swimming pools, including a lap pool, and you can also get a decent sea swim in the Anse La Raie lagoon, and two tennis courts, now as good as new, and floodlit in the evening. There’s also a lovely Cinq Mondes spa, offering treatments based on ancient healing rituals.

 

The well-equipped boathouse situated on the end of a small promontory offers Hobie Cats, dinghies and the chance to spot turtles on snorkelling trips. An added attraction is the hotel’s large, crewed catamaran (please note the catamaran trip is chargeable), which takes guests on short trips to nearby islands for swimming and snorkelling. Not surprisingly, these jaunts tend to be very popular. For the more adventurous, mountain bikes offer a good way to explore the island.

Susie suggests:

 

  • Go for lunch at the Peninsula Restaurant, with stunning views of the Northern Islands
  • Get a pampering treatment in the Cinq Mondes spa
  • Take the catamaran cruise to pristine Île Plate (Flat Island)
  • Enjoy a sunset cocktail at The Peninsula
