Wellness holiday in a villa in Mauritius

spa

Mauritius is the ideal place for a wellness holiday in a villa : luxurious vegetation, breathtaking landscapes, white, sandy beaches …. These are all the ingredients to create the calming and relaxing atmosphere of a wellness holiday.

We don’t even have to think twice, this is THE wellness destination we would recommend. In addition, the choice of villas is particularly suitable if you are looking for a holiday destination with relaxation, comfort and wellness in mind.

 

Why would a stay in a villa be particularly beneficial when it comes to wellness?
A stay in a holiday villa offers a few advantages which can transform your holidays into a real break from day-to-day life, thus allowing you to unwind completely and recharge your batteries. The rental of a great number of villas in Mauritius will give you access to a variety of services, some of them included in the rent, all of them aiming at making your stay an oasis of relaxation.

For example, you have the possibility to hire a personal trainer who will come to the villa for your fitness, martial arts, yoga or meditation classes.

Furthermore, you can book relaxing massages and beauty treatments at the villa. We can also recommend benefiting from the preferential rates some of the villa rental agencies offer at the surrounding hotels, allowing you access to the hotel spa, hamman, golf courses etc.

Enjoy the beauty of Mauritius in the close proximity of your villa
It is not necessary to drive a long way to find a relaxing place outside of your villa. You will generally just have to leave the house in order to find yourself surrounded by extraordinary nature. A lot of the villas are located on private beaches, where you can just unwind under a shady casuarina tree, enjoy the breeze and listen to the  rustle in the leaves of the palm trees while sipping on the juice of a freshly cut coconut.
And what could be more relaxing than sailing out to sea? The rental of a villa in Mauritius most of the times gives you access to a half-day a day-long boat rental with a skipper, who will take you to the most unspoiled, magnificent parts of the lagoons, allowing you to explore the marine life of the clear, turquoise waters.
If you prefer to stay on terra firma, you will be able to find a variety of fantastic hikes through the Gorges of Black River, or hire a guide and walk up the mountain “Le Pouce” with its breathtaking views from coast to coast. Surrounded by the beauty of nature, you will be able to unwind and replenish your energy levels.

 

In short, a villa rental in Mauritius is the ideal holiday solution for you if you are planning to dedicate your holidays to wellness. A number of agencies offer different packages which allow you to choose activities according to your personal wellness requirements. And just a note : let yourself be pampered and make the most of these precious moments.

Holiday accommodation – a few tips on how to travel lightly with toddler

travel with toddler

A family holiday is a fantastic project, which can however become a real nightmare if you are travelling with one or more babies.

Before you start the often tedious and time-consuming preparations of your trip, aim to find a suitable solution for your holiday accommodation, which corresponds to the number of persons travelling and to their ages. If you are travelling with a baby, some accommodations are not to be recommended, such as staying with a local or in a guest house, while others such as renting a house, an apartment or a villa are more suitable than a hotel stay.

To choose the right kind of accommodation means to maintain the usual routine for your baby. A hotel stay might be disruptive due to different meal times and other schedules. If you are renting your own holiday home you and your baby’s routine stay the same.

Although we would recommend this kind of accommodation for your holidays, we would however draw your attention to the fact that you need to check the available facilities at your holiday home in order to avoid any bad surprises upon your arrival. Make sure to use a reputable agency that is specialized in the rental of holiday homes instead of renting directly from the home owner, who will try to rent his property at all costs without paying attention to your specific requirements. An agency that is specialized in the rental of holiday accommodation will be able to guide you in your decision making process. Some agency offer tailor-made services which will add a considerable amount of comfort during your holidays when it comes to managing your baby: babysitter, kids club, in-house chef, all-inclusive packages, grocery deliveries before your arrival based on a shopping list that you have completed before your trip etc. If all these services are available for your family’s arrival, make sure that the necessary baby equipment is also available: baby cot, high chair, changing table, bottle warmer etc. In general, you will be able to rent the equipment in addition to your holiday home.

If you are requested to pay an additional amount for the rental of this equipment, just bear in mind that it is much easier to rent everything at your destination rather than bringing it all with you in an additional suitcase (and risk paying surcharges for exceeding your luggage allowance).

Once you have chosen your holiday accommodation, all you have to do is pack your bags. When choosing your clothes and those of your baby, bear in mind that most holiday homes come with a washing machine. To transport your baby, rather opt for a baby carrier than a pushchair (which you can rent on site, if needed).

Why is a holiday rental the perfect solution for big families ?

Big families holiday in Mauritius

family holiday at the beach

When you are organizing the holidays for your « tribe », you have to consider a number of factors to make sure that everybody is happy and that you stay within your budget, especially when you are planning a trip to the other side of the globe, namely Mauritius.

Actually, there is nothing more difficult than finding the right solution for all the members of the family, especially if you have to find the right solution for 3, 4 or more children of different age groups.

The rental of a holiday home might be the answer, as you can respect and maintain your privacy as a family. It is much easier to plan and participate in activities as a family group, to gather around the table for family meals and to go on discovery tours around the country or your holiday area. Meanwhile, if you choose a luxury hotel stay, each family member would most probably choose an activity of their personal liking, and children will most probably join other children they have met that the hotel instead of spending precious time with the family.

Another, far more mundane reason, speaks for a holiday rentals in Mauritius : the financial aspect.

The cost for a holiday in a rental home is much less than at a hotel, especially for big families.  A family with 4 children would require a minimum of 3 rooms at a hotel with half-board, whereas they could rent a 3-bedroom holiday villa and prepare their own meals or have the house staff (whose cost is included in the rent) prepare the meals for them with the groceries they have bought at the local rates, which makes it far more economic than a meal at a restaurant or at a hotel.

Finally, as far as activities are concerned, some agencies such as Oazure holiday rentals agency that offer a vast catalogue of activities, excursions and services, so that families can benefit from lots of time spent together instead of being apart.

Hence, it is worthwhile to consider the option « villa rental with services and activities » when planning a family holiday with the aim to spend memorable time with the family while respecting the budget for the most precious time of the year.

Misconceptions on holiday rentals in Mauritius and why this must change

mauritius villas Misconceptions on holiday rentals in Mauritius and why this must change (cleaning, low cost and low quality accommodation, cooking) Many people think that renting a holiday villa in Mauritius will be more inconvenience than holidays. We would like to show you that this is not true, quite the contrary.  

1 /Doing household chores on vacation? One of the most frequently stated arguments is “when renting a villa, one is obliged to take care of household chores, which is not really a holiday …” Wrong! 100% of the villas are rented with a daily housekeeping service (included in the price of the villa rental) and you can enjoy your vacation without any tedious chores. In a holiday villa just as at the hotel, you won’t have to do any housework.  

2 / Shopping, cooking? Another argument is “when renting a house, you have to do your own shopping, think about preparing meals, …” Wrong! The shopping service that is offered will avoid you having to go shopping, and the cook or chef who will be available at the villa will suggest various menus, both with local and international dishes, which will allow you to discover the real Mauritian cuisine!

3 / Quality of the accommodation? This third point is often put forward: “the villa rental in Mauritius is a cheap way to spend a holiday with basic accommodation of low quality” Wrong! The catalog offers villas of various categories, but none of them are basic. All come with included service, most offer direct access to the beach and / or private pool outside the house and all have been carefully selected to meet the quality criteria required by the representatives of the agency . So you can stay in a “beachfront villa” or in a “luxury beachfront villa,” or maybe you prefer an “exceptional villa”, whatever your budget, your desire, your choice, rest assured that the villa meets the requirements of at least a very comfortable, economic hotel or a 5 * hotel for the most luxurious villas.

4 / No Services and no activities at the house? It is often said that “at the villa we don’t know what activities to do, whereas at the hotel there is a great choice provided.” Wrong! The agency has developed a large number of activities and services offered exclusively for villa guests. Holidaymakers will have the pleasure of being “at home, yet as comfortable as at a hotel.” In fact, everything is in place to offer a wide variety of services and activities, but nothing is imposed on the villa guests. Upon arrival at the villa, you will receive a catalog with many activities and carefully selected exclusive services, tested and approved by the Oazure Villa Mauritius concierge team. Hence, you can select what you want and your private concierge will book all the excursions, boat trips, massages, etc . for you. Don’t you think it is high time to review the misconceptions about villa rental in Mauritius ?

Why rent a villa for your honeymoon in Mauritius

Why rent a villa in Mauritius

holiday rentals mauritius

1 / Get the true “honeymoon” feeling in your romantic private villa

Imagine your own private beach in front of your villa … wouldn’t that be a dream come true?

To rent a beachfront villa means that will have the privilege of having a private beach in front of your holiday home and some villas even have a private pool.

The privacy of a private villa will definitely be the ultimate for the most romantic get-away.

Although the beaches of the hotels are often beautiful, they are also busy with other hotel guests, sun loungers and beach hawkers and do not provide an intimate atmosphere.

Furthermore, a hotel stay among many other guests – although always of high quality in Mauritius – cannot match the care that the staff of your private villa will take to ensure that your honeymoon is absolutely perfect.

You will often find flower petals arranged on your bed, pretty flower bouquets on your table and a thousand little courtesies to make your stay unforgettable.

You can ask your cook for your favorite dishes, you can dine by candlelight on the beach. Or would you like to have breakfast on the water’s edge? No problem, simply ask …

2 / Taking care of honeymooners

The agency that rents villas offers a concierge service that will organize the services and activities of your choice for you, you just have to pick up the phone {at your disposal at the villa) to ask.

Are you dreaming of a couple’s massage overlooking the sea? The therapists come to the house and will pamper you while you enjoy the views of the lagoon.

Would you like to make a boat trip at sunset, it will be organized exclusively for you, and you will enjoy a moment that will live long in your memories.

3 / Many villas to choose from

The wide variety of available villas will allow you, if you like, to stay in several villas. You will thus be able to discover different parts of the island and have the guarantee to find the same attentive service for honeymooners every time.

4 / The promise of an exclusive Honeymoon

Make your stay a unique, exceptional experience, the most romantic honeymoon you can think of, the highlight of your marriage : this is the promise of a stay in a private villa with Oazure Villa Mauritius.

Why you should make your holiday booking with an agency rather than a private owner

Holiday booking in Mauritius

mauritius accommodation

Are you thinking of a finding a different holiday solution rather than the usual hotel or club stay? You are looking for a more modern approach to holidays for your next vacation? The rental of a different kind of holiday accommodation seems to be the best solution.

When you are looking for holiday rentals, two solutions come to mind: either your rent directly from the owner or you rent a property through a professional (a specialized agency, tour operator etc.)

Why choose an agency?

For security reasons

When you are looking to rent a house or an apartment on the other side of the globe for your holidays, it can sometimes be difficult to find a private owner you can trust. Making your booking through an agency seems far more reassuring.

For expert advice

An agency or tourism professional knows the region he works in like the back of his hand. To use an agency for your booking means using the expert advice of a professional who can guide you in your choice of accommodation. Furthermore, you can choose from a wide variety of houses, villas and apartments etc.

Being taken care of 100%

Your holidays are precious, and you will want to relax and unwind without having to worry about anything. By booking your holidays through an agency, you won’t have to worry about anything: from booking your air fares to your accommodation, an agency will take care of everything.

Services and activities

One of the biggest differences between booking your holidays with a private owner or an agency is the choice and quality of services and activities offered during your holiday. An agency will be able to organize the airport transfer to your accommodation and offer you the services of an in-house chef who will prepare all your meals for you. This adds a different dimension to the most precious time of the year: instead of renting a simple accommodation with a private owner, you will be able to benefit from services comparable to those of the big hotels, at a much better rate and with the added value of incomparable conviviality.

In addition, a varied and tested catalog of activities is available through an agency, who will select only the best providers, thus allowing you to avoid the usual “tourist traps”.

Avoid misconceptions 

Some people think that choosing the professional service of an agency will lead to additional costs. On the contrary, a private owner is sometimes disconnected from the real market value and will offer his property at an elevated rate. It also happens that owners will increase their rates on the pretext of not charging any agency fees.

For more choice, more simplicity, more professionalism and above all, for not taking any risks with your holidays, which represent a rather considerable expense, say good-bye to uncertainty and possible risk and entrust your holiday project to a professional – we can only recommend it.

Mauritius Island

Mauritius is a particularly interesting holiday destination, as it offers a variety of landscapes. Each region of the island has its specificity, which contributes to one of the biggest assets for the tourism industry: there is something for every taste and every mood.

Whether you want quiet rest under a coconut tree on a private sandy beach overlooking the turquoise water of the lagoon, or in a hammock in a large estate in the hills in the Mauritian countryside, whether you prefer to do water sports like kite-surfing, wake-boarding or water skiing, or spending a night out and discover the typical Mauritian ‘joie de vivre” and the typical Sega dance, Mauritius has it all, depending on the region in which you book your vacation rental.

In addition, this part of the island offers some of the best golf courses of the country, as for example the Ile aux Cerfs golf course, which you can visit also by catamaran or speedboat to spend a day on this beautiful island. Renting a villa facing the Ile aux Cerf is the guarantee of an incredible view from the villa’s terrace and own private beach. The east coast is also the coast that remains the most typical of Mauritius, with charming fishing villages like Trou d’Eau Douce, Renting a holiday accommodation on the East Coast means choosing authenticity.

The north of the island is the most developed region and one that offers the most activities. Visitors will enjoy the lively town of Grand Baie, with many dancing bars and very good beachfront restaurants. Grand Baie is also the starting point for several trips, such as a catamaran day at Ile Plate (Flat Island), as well as several scuba diving spots including the Coin de Mire, a protected island off the north coast, which offers an incredible wealth of marine life. The north coast of Mauritius is also full of beautiful luxury hotels, as well as large family villas that allow you to get together and enjoy a holiday with family or friends.
