Maradiva Villas & Spa Mauritius
Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa is the only five-star luxury all-villa resort situated on the West Coast of Mauritius. This part of the island is famous for its amazing sunset and its dry and warm climate. The resort is enriched with a long stretch of pristine beach that provides spectacular views of the Le Morne Mountain. You can enjoy the serene ambiance or partake in a variety of activities like kayaking, windsurfing and water skiing.
The hotel is perfectly located on the West Coast of Mauritius, approximately an hour drive from the airport. This part of the island is called Flic en Flac and it is famous for its amazing sunsets and perfect climate the whole year around.
The Maradiva Villas & Spa is a privately owned luxury five-star resort, with 65 spacious villas and more than 27 lush acres of land. Their guiding principle is exclusivity, elegance, privacy, authenticity, discretion and highest quality service. It is the entire experience that comes together to create the magic of Maradiva. Typical Mauritian architecture is shown all around the resort.
Rooms & Suites
When I arrived at the resort, friendly staff members took care of the formalities and drove me directly to my private Garden Suite Pool Villa. Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa offers four different room categories. You can choose to stay at the garden villa, beachfront villa, exclusive suite villa or presidential villa. The villas are cozily nestled in nature along the coastline, very well designed, spacious and each of them has its own private plunge pool. They are perfect for those seeking a discreetly luxurious, ultimately private and personalized Mauritian experience.
Garden Suite Pool Villa
My Villa was surrounded by lush exotic gardens, just a short walk from the beach. The Villa was spacious, with king size bed, small working area, separate bathroom with rain shower, bathtub and walk-in wardrobe. The bathroom had Hermes amenities, bathrobes, slippers and a hair dryer.
The Villa also had an outdoor living room with large table for private Alfresco dining, sun loungers, and a private pool. A secluded open-air outdoor garden shower was also available.
Restaurants & Bars
Maradiva Villas & Spa has three restaurants serving anything from authentic Mauritian cuisine to Mediterranean, Japanese and Indian dishes. They are also opening their fourth restaurant, which will be on the beach serving barbecue dishes.
The Coast2Coast is hotels main restaurant and serves Mediterranean, Mauritian and International cuisines in a relaxed ambiance. There is a buffet style breakfast with plenty of options to choose from, A La Carte lunch and dinner with the special menu every evening. You can choose to sit at one of the three lounges or outside on the terrace with spectacular view of the ocean. For those with romance on the mind, beach dinners under Raj tents can also be arranged.
Cilantro is an elegant restaurant open for A La Carte dining and features the finest in Indian cuisine. The dinner was fabulous with so many different Indian dishes and the best Naan bread I ever had. I would warmly recommend that you visit Cilantro and ask the waiter for recommendations. You won’t be disappointed!
One of the most interesting and fun dinners I had was definitely at the Teppanyaki Restaurant. The show was great and the food delicious and freshly prepared before our eyes. You can choose between two sitting and enjoy the performance and the dishes.
The Breakers Lounge Bar is where you can enjoy a cocktail or two before dinner. They also serve light meals during the day and have a huge selection of international wines and spirits. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the views of Le Morne and the ocean.
I had the pleasure to enjoy the cooking class with the famous Teppanyaki Chef Kelly. She prepared everything for a three-course meal and showed me how to master a delicious lunch at home.
You can choose from a range of cooking classes. Japanese Cooking Class is on Saturday only and from Monday till Sunday, you can enjoy Thai, Indian and Mauritian Cooking Classes. The price for the class is €62 and it lasts around 90 minutes. I had a really lovely time learning new things and Chef Kelly created a pleasant atmosphere.

The Spa is located in the heart of the resort and it is strongly influenced by Indian philosophy. It is a place where you can unwind, rejuvenate and at the same time relax in the tranquility.
