Paradise Cove

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Nestled in beautiful tropical gardens, Paradise Cove Boutique Hotel is a gorgeous adults-only boutique hotel, offering guests a secluded retreat from the world. Aptly named, it really is paradise here with a pristine white beach and exceptional views of the lagoon and the northern islands from the peninsula. Highly romantic, the resort even offers ‘love nest’ twin sun beds. Also recommended is a visit to Spa Cinq Mondes. Not only does it boast a pool, hammam and flower baths, you can treat yourself to an Indian Ayurvedic massage — sure to banish any lingering cares! At the Paradise Cove, water sports are very much the order of the day, from snorkelling to water-skiing. Come dusk, S.T.A.Y bar is the place to sip on tropical cocktails whilst admiring the sunset. There’s live and unplugged music here too but first enjoy dinner at a choice of restaurants. For local dishes, the Dining Room is ideal or experience Asian fusion cuisine at XO. For a real treat, book a table at The Cove — highly romantic, tables for two are set in small huts, right on the beach, beside a coconut grove.

We really enjoyed our first visit to this small hotel, so much so we went back for our honemoon a few years later. The staff remembered us from our first hoiday and could not do enough to make our stay memorable. We like to swith off and this is the place to do it. If you are looking for partys and disco boozy nights this is not the place. love… Read more

The staff remembered us from our first hoiday and could not do enough to make our stay memorable. We like to swith off and this is the place to do it. If you are looking for partys and disco boozy nights this is not the place. love the small curved beach and the bed dotted around the little lagoon, water clarity in the lagoon is not good but that's because of the vegetation on the sand bottom. The pool is small but nicely laid out. We are thinking of returning at some point in the near future. Read less

Perfect destination for a honeymoon. This hotel is idyllic. Our room had a stunning view overlooking the cove. There was an excellent selection of food and drinks. We went all inclusive and would definitely recommend this. The pools are stunning and had great views. There are plenty of sunbeds and some nice quiet places to sunbath. The beach is beautiful but lots of crabs. We had a lizard in our room but the staff were quick to respond to remove this for us. We both had a treatment and enjoyed it very much. Great evening entertainment and very relaxing. Could not recommend this hotel enough. Thank you for a brilliant honeymoon. Read less

Absolutely lovely. Very romantic setting. Staff were attentive and super-polite for our entire stay. On our last day check-out was early and left us with a few hours at the hotel grounds waiting for our transfer. We had payed, deliverd our keys and signed out.... But the staff still took VERY good care of us: even recieved an endless stream of free drinks. Rooms were lovely and clean. Everything was perfect <3 We promised Michael we´d mention him in our review. A bit late now, perhaps, as we stayed there in July 2016 :p (The choise for "when did you travel" on Tripadvisor didn´t go as far back as 2016 though, so that¨s not accurate ;) )But anyways: Thanks to Michael and the rest of the staff for making our honeymoon perfect! We will be back for sure <3 Read less

On arriving we was pleased with our choice. The views from the rooms are gorgous. We arrived late and had a little trouble with a cat in our loft space....it was not problem they moved us immediately and upgraded us to a nicer room. It was funny as we was saying we do not want to move because we like the view, but the next room was even better. … Read more
On arriving we was pleased with our choice. The views from the rooms are gorgous. We arrived late and had a little trouble with a cat in our loft space....it was not problem they moved us immediately and upgraded us to a nicer room. It was funny as we was saying we do not want to move because we like the view, but the next room was even better. The rooms are a little tired but to be honest it did not seem to matter as they were really quirky...however we was informed that they was closing down in the following weeks for refurbishment. NO FIGHTING FOR SUNBEDS YAY....they are plentiful however the ones down by the sea usually get taken. Infinity pool gorgous lovely views. Entertainment very relaxed....no bopping around here. Afternoon tea served every day which is good. Staff excellent. Took a taxi down to the town 500 from the hotel 200 if you walk out on to the road. All in all a lovely relaxed hotel. Would of like to have seen some frilled fish on the menu but in all happy with our holiday. Read less
