Maritim Resort & Spa *****
If you are looking to explore the north coast of the island then the Maritim, is a great option. This gorgeous hotel looks out from a lush 25-hectare mountain backed estate to a reef screened 500-metre beach and a marine national park. It’s the ideal location for couples seeking their holidays in a romantic relaxing setting. With such a short drive from the shopping and nightly hot spots of the town, back at the hotel you'll find reassuringly elegant and luxurious facilities and activities, with rooms offering calm and relaxing interiors with balconies or terraces as well as spacious bathrooms and other exclusive additions. Our favourite room type is one up from the entry level Standard rooms, called the Privilege Room largely because of the lovely bathrooms (with stunning freestanding baths) which can be opened up to the bedroom through sliding doors making for a very attractive and airier feeling. The comprehensive all-inclusive facilities that are available at the Maritim, enable one to enjoy a variety of restaurants and delicious beverages including cocktails and a selection of sparkling wines. There are plenty of activities available, with land and watersports and an equestrian centre. For those planning golfing holidays the Maritim has a 9 hole on-site golf course. One can truly relax in the tranquility of the Maritim Tropical Flower Spa which is one of the most beautiful spas in Mauritius.
