Yes! It’s true… Mauritius is re-opening its doors and welcoming vaccinated South Africans from the 1st of October. With Mauritius being the top destination that South African families regularly travel to, this comes as great news – and just in time for the December holidays!

Do note that children under the age of 18yrs who are currently not eligible for a vaccination, will need to travel with a negative PCR test. 

Now that the island is welcoming us, which resorts offer the best experience for you and your family? Here are our tried and tested, favourite Mauritius holiday resorts for a family holiday:

Club Med Las Pointe Aux Cannoniers

Club Med is world renown for their all-inclusive family-friendly resorts, and this resort might take the cake! Rarely have we seen Kids Clubs that are the size this one is! The actual Kids Club is made up of a large outside play area as well as multiple rooms for different age groups, with different themes and colours. There are professional educators and carers around every corner, ensuring the little ones are having the time of their lives in a safe environment.  

Club Med Mauritius

Outside of the Kids Club, the resort also offers a separate children’s pool and play area, separate from the main pool, and specifically designed with shallow waters, water slides and more! Mealtimes are fun for everyone; Club Med caters so well for all age groups, and your little ones have an entire section of the daily buffet dedicated to them! They also offer a Club Med baby welcome package (which does need to be arranged before arrival) which includes a bathtub, bottle warmer, changing table, umbrella bed and a stroller (0 – 23 months).

Beachcomber’s Cannonier Resort & Spa

The Kids Club is a safari-inspired tented village which includes a generous playground plus miniature golf course. Family duplexes are also ideal with 3 kids under 18 being able to share the duplex space with 2 adults. The main room is downstairs, and a staircase leads to the open-plan loft bedroom. They’re not recommended for smaller children, but ideal for those between 6 and 11 yrs. If you are travelling with teenagers, there are boat shuttles between Beachcombers Cannonier and Mauricia Resort, if you want to take advantage of both resort facilities plus visit Grand Baie at the same time. Watersports are also included at Cannonier, so there’s plenty of fun to be had for the whole family!
