Congratulations on finding your forever love! Now comes the fun part – planning your honeymoon! If you’re on the hunt for the perfect honeymoon destination, look no further than the enchanting island of Mauritius. We reveal why a honeymoon package this tropical paradise is the ultimate choice for your post-wedding escape. 

Mauritius Is a Couple’s Playground 

First things first, let’s address the burning question on every couple’s mind: is Mauritius a good honeymoon location? Absolutely! The island’s romantic ambience, coupled with its breathtaking scenery, creates the perfect setting for newlyweds. We recommend at least a 7 to 10-day stay to allow you to explore the island at a leisurely pace without feeling rushed. 

The Best Time to Plan for a Honeymoon in Mauritius 

The best time to travel to Mauritius is between May and October when the weather is warm and ideal. Although you can visit during the rainy season from January to May, we recommend travelling when the weather is more predictable (May to October). With Mauritius being just a 4-hour flight from Johannesburg, and a visa-free stay for the first 60 days for South Africans, it’s the perfect hassle-free honeymoon destination.  

Best Mauritius Resorts for Couples 

There is no shortage of incredible resorts for honeymooners. While choosing the right accommodation is key to a memorable honeymoon, you’ll also need to consider your budget. De Grand Baie Apartments, for example, is a great cost-effective choice, while an adults-only resort, like Lagoon Attitude, will be slightly more expensive. Resorts like Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa may be a bit on the pricey side, but it is very popular with honeymooners and weddings.  

The east coast, which is known for its serene beaches, is often touted as the best side of Mauritius for honeymooners. 

Budgeting for Your Mauritius Honeymoon 

Now, let’s talk about the nitty-gritty – how much does a honeymoon in Mauritius cost? For South African couples, a mid-range honeymoon package, including flights, accommodation, meals, and activities, can range from anywhere between R14,500 to just under R53,000 for an all-inclusive luxury holiday package.
