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, Stay 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.

Just arrived back from what was the best time of our lives. It was our honeymoon, all the staff from the management, bar staff, waiters and waitresses, cleaners, Chiefs, gardeners and entertainment pulled out all the stops. Never been to such a friendly, well groomed hotel which is nothing more than paradise and can I mention the food which is divine. Really sad to have come home but will definitely be going back and taking family members back next year to experience the same. If you are looking for paradise please look no further than paradise cove, our memories will stay with us forever. Thank you to you all 💕 never forget you all. Mr & Mrs Rowland Xxx Read less

It’s not often we stay at places and after 10 days we are not ready to come home – but after 10 day’s here we were definitely NOT ready to come home. It is simply paradise! Everything about this hotel is just amazing – the location, the complex, the staff, food, spa, apartment, swimming pools, restaurants and our honeymoon package were all outstanding. Special thanks has to go to a few named people: Sandhira, Gavish, Yan, Michel, Manoj, Nitesh, Anoushka, Sangeeta, Premila, but to be honest everyone was so helpful and friendly. We do have to give a special mention to Yan, the Junior Soux Chef. He went out of his way to ensure that, despite one of us having a food allergy, he accommodated this throughout our stay, and adapted menus, sometimes without us even asking. All in all, a perfect location for a quiet romantic honeymoon, with no kids around! Read less

My husband and I have returned this week from our third visit to Paradise Cove. We first visited in 2014 and have returned for our honeymoon in 2017 and (delayed) baby moon in 2021. Every time we have visited every detail has been thought through and nothing is too much for the staff to accommodate such as off menu cocktails, dietary requirements, allergies etc. I even had a fresh milk and a tea pot in the room for tea at my request. if you are on the fence about half board vs All Inclusive, the drinks on all inc. are fantastic and in particular the wines. As the hotel is all open air it is easy to social distance, the hotel is very clean (always has been) but all staff are wearing masks even in the heat and there is frequent sanitisation as the Mauritian Government have very strict guidelines to approve hotels to operate. This time we were concerned about the Covid-19 protocols at the buffet and Nicolas and Guillaume in the management team put our minds at ease and accommodated our concerns. There are still some ignorant guests that think mask wearing doesn't apply to them but that happens everywhere... Some standout team members are Sanjeet, Sanjeeta, Reshma, Dev, Kriti and Deepak from the restaurant team. Yan from the Cove chef team made us a wonderful candlelight dinner with beef cheek slow cooked for 12 hours, it was the best meal we have ever eaten. Manoj and Michael from the bars have been amazing every time we have visited, they genuinely love their jobs and have been there for 15 years which is a credit to the hotel! The hotel is literally paradise for us and we will definitely be back again when we can! Read less
