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.

The staff at Indigo, the Dining room, and XO, made the culinary experience all the better, and the food was very good, the staff stated the hotel is due for refurbishment, I can only say, we look forward to going back after that is finished, because if they can improve on this, then we want to be there, thanks again Paradise Cove 😎🍺 Read less

The cove and lagoon swimming and sunbathing were lovely as were the grounds. That was where Paradise ceased. Rooms - adequate but "tired" and came with "wild life (cockroaches and ants). Balcony swarming with ants and piles of cigarette butts in shrubs throughout our stay. We are non smokers. Staff generally very helpful and pleasant especially the waiting staff who seemed to know they had to make up for the food. "Managers" floating around muttering "everything alright but not stopping to hear the answer. New food and beverage manager very helpful but clearly has an uphill battle. Food - 4 restaurants and an eccentric, 7 page menu of what the chef thought passed for "fine dining". It offered little in the way of local food which had not been "westernised" in some way, all serviced from one kitchen, with clearly no quality control. A disaster which no- one, including the "Executive Chef" seemed to see. Everything felt pre- prepared and tired. No specials of the day or any "proper local food" apart from "westernised versions". The best meal was when, after lots of complaints, we asked to eat what the kitchen staff were having for dinner - excellent because it was local, fresh and they knew how to cook it. When guests in an all food and drink priced hotel are booking taxis to local restaurants someone should notice. I gathered that the Hotel might be "under new management" and it needs it. At premium prices I would wait for a while before booking this Boutique Hotel. Read less

We were lucky enough to honeymoon for 10 nights at paradise cove - and it truly was the honeymoon of our dreams. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, they couldn't of done enough for you. The food was to a high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed dining at all four restaurants, and the romantic breakfast in the cove was wonderful. The room was beautiful, and was cleaned and restocked to a high standard daily. It was such a treat to return from our romantic meal on the beach to a bubble bath ready with flowers! There were a great selection of water sports and excursions available, my husband loved the rum tasting which was fun and informative. We also cannot recommend the spa enough - both experienced an amazing massage during our stay. We cannot praise the staff and service at paradise cove enough for ensuring we had an amazing honeymoon. Its a truly beautiful, intimate and relaxing hotel to unwind after the wedding stress! We hope to return very soon! Read less
