Famed for its stunning natural beauty and sub-tropical climate, Mauritius is the perfect destination for luxury-loving beachgoers. But being home to an idyllic blend of tranquil beaches, sparkling lagoons and luscious landscapes, there is more to discover of this magical island, and something to entice every traveller. Days can be spent lounging on the shores or enjoying a range of watersports, beside the pool or on the golf course.
The sought-after, sunny seclusion of this island has become a popular luxury beach holiday for those who are looking to escape the stresses of the every day, and truly relax. Which is what Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury does best.
Whether your visit to this tropical gem is your long-awaited dream escape or just a small part of a multi-centre break, Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury sets the stage for an idyllic stay filled with indulgence. Think dreamy sands and turquoise waters, relaxing spa treatments and elite service; it was even the first 'Leading Hotel of the World' in the Indian Ocean.
So you know you'll be living in luxury from the moment you set foot at the resort, but if lounging with a book isn't quite your style or you want to add a bit of variety to your stay, this guide to a day at Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury has you covered.
Wake Up in Paradise
Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury weaves the allure of the sea into the very fabric of your experience. Each suite has a thoughtful design that offers an incredible sea view, but this luxury resort surpasses expectations. From the moment you wake up, vistas across the crystal-clear waters and the promise of a sea breeze greet you.
Guests truly do wake up a world away from the ordinary, immediately immersed in beach bliss. Whilst natural beauty may take precedence, comfort is no afterthought. Amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi internet and air-conditioning ensuring you have everything you need.
The scenic landscapes of Mauritius and its enticing climate, alongside the island's ever-expanding array of golf courses, have led to a rise in guests taking to the greens.
Start your day bright and early by heading to Mont Choisy Le Golf, an 18-hole golf course just ten minutes from Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury. You can also choose an expanded experience, where the resort provides transfers, masterfully prepared snacks, golf bag storage and a golf cart - making it easier than ever for you to enjoy your round.
The course does have state-of-the-art practice facilities too; including chipping and pitching areas, putting greens and a 300m double-ended driving range if you're not wanting to spend a full day on the course.
Whilst there is a restaurant and bar at the course, La Goélette is Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury's signature restaurant that's open for breakfast with beach views. Having worked up a hunger (or, with the restaurant open from 7:30am, you could grab a bite before you hit the course), you can feast on either a buffet or A la Carte offering.
Relax on the Beach
Swap the greens for endless blues as you spend the rest of your morning relaxing on the shores. Surround yourself with serenity and enjoy stunning views, soft sand and the private setting of the beach that is protected by the Bay. The white sand beaches are perfect for simply enjoying the sun, but there's also plenty of watersports on offer if you'd like to continue the morning's athleticism - choose from water-skiing, windsurfing, kayaking, snorkelling, paddle boarding and more
Get A Taste of the Island at Lunch
Mauritius' gastronomic heritage showcases a rich blend of fresh flavours, diverse influences and versatility. Whilst the luxury resort has plenty of delicious food on its menus, Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury is also close by to some local favourites so that you can get a true taste of the island.
Escale Creole in Moka has a gourmet menu filled with flavour. Though about an hour from the resort, this traditional local restaurant is a must-do if you're in the area. Discover lunchtime creole favourites and delightful rum offerings.
Take to the Spa
The Royal Palm Spa is this resort's world-class offering of pampering and relaxation, with an exclusive partnership with Valmont. As the day begins to wind down, so can you with one of the many treatments available here. There are plenty of facilities to make the most of, including twelve treatment rooms, an outdoor plunge pool, a choice of relaxing areas and much more.
Embrace the peace of mind that this island brings with a sunset yoga class. As part of the resort's spa and wellness facilities, there is a yoga pavilion as well as classes taught right beside the beach - both of which offer serene views that are the perfect complement to each pose.
Dinner at Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury
The resort has three great restaurants with delicious food designed by award-winning executive chef William Girard that will impress any food lover. End your day in paradise with Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury's partnership with Chef Cyril Lignac at Ischia. This restaurant combines Italian flavours with the Mauritian beachfront, offering a luxurious dining experience.
