Dreaming of saying “I do” on a sun-kissed beach with the gentle sound of waves as your background music? Look no further than Mauritius! This paradise island in the Indian Ocean offers an idyllic setting for your special day. And if you’re considering tying the knot at a Beachcomber resort, get ready for a truly unforgettable experience. With their exclusive policy of hosting just one wedding per day, you and your beloved will be the stars of the show, receiving undivided attention and top-notch service from start to finish. 

Why Mauritius? 

So, why choose Mauritius for your big day? Well, picture-perfect beaches, crystal-clear waters, and lush tropical landscapes are just the beginning. Mauritius is renowned for its warm hospitality, making it an ideal destination for weddings. Whether you’re planning an intimate ceremony or a grand celebration, the island offers a range of stunning venues to suit every style and budget. 

Best Months to Get Married 

Choosing the perfect time for your Mauritius wedding is crucial, and fortunately, the island enjoys beautiful weather year-round. However, the best months to tie the knot are typically from May to September, during the island’s dry season. These months offer plenty of sunshine and pleasant temperatures, making them ideal for beach weddings and outdoor celebrations. Keep in mind that the peak tourist season falls between December and April, so you may want to avoid these months if you prefer a quieter, more intimate affair. 

Cost Considerations 

Now, let’s talk about the nitty-gritty: how much will it cost to get married in Mauritius? Well, the good news is that it’s more affordable than you might think. Beachcomber wedding packages offer excellent value for money, with all-inclusive options available to suit different preferences and budgets. Plus, with Pentravel handling your accommodation and flights, you can rest assured that you’re getting the best deals possible. 

The Perfect Venue 

Choosing the right venue is crucial to creating the wedding of your dreams. Mauritius boasts an array of stunning wedding venues, from beachfront resorts to lush botanical gardens.
