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.

I don’t know where to begin. My husband and I just arrived home this morning from this glorious resort. We wanted to go somewhere exotic for our wedding anniversary but could only go for a week so this sounded ideal. I can’t begin to describe how welcoming and receptive all the staff were, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble at all. The resort itself was beautiful with lovely clean pools and a quiet cove to swim in. There were always plenty of sun loungers available, some of them tucked away between swaying palm trees or exotic foliage which was quite beautiful. Absolutely heavenly if you want peace and quiet with some activities thrown in. We went for a catamaran sail and snorkelling which was superb. The attendant who took us out to snorkel was charming and witty, entertaining us with stories about sharks and the different types of fish. There was plenty of choice food wise, from sushi to tapas and all of it was delicious. My favourite was the Indian theme night where there was live Indian dancing and an amazing Indian buffet....absolutely amazing. The room we had was lovely. So clean with wonderful double walk in showers and very efficient air con. I had a slight problem working the safe but that was sorted straight away and, when I found I had brought the wrong adaptors, a member of staff was at my door within 15 minutes with the correct ones. What really made this week so special was that unfortunately my husband became slightly poorly with a bad leg but the staff were fantastic. Sandhya especially could not have done more to help us, allowing us to have a late check out which was a relief as he had to go straight to hospital. As worried as I was all the staff and managers were just totally reassuring and we felt thoroughly cared for. I can only name but a few of the staff, Ghavish who helped me with my cocktails to the charming man who made sure I had cool drinks at the cove and who also cleaned my sunglasses, the lovely girl who made me my pancakes at breakfast......everyone was just delightful. My husband and I will be returning again for sure....but this time staying longer and hopefully without a bad leg! Read less

This is a superb hotel near Grand Baie and the staff and food were outstanding. The rooms lacked nothing and three different restaurants offered variety with the Paradise restaurant for lunch being our favourite Just be aware that there is no where to walk to from the hotel of any note tho most guests did use the bikes to go into Grand Baie about 15 mins away. Certainly no local bar. The cove was quite rough when we were there and hence the water was not very clear so snorkelling good but not great. I believe it was better when others went out in the catamaran A fabulous place to go to relax and enjoy the warmth Read less

There was a breadth and diversity to the guest staying in this magnificent resort. The newly renovated rooms were so comfortable, excellent air con, walk in shower and super comfortable bed. The best part of the location was that the north of the island is always sunny and there were so many beautiful places to sit/lie/relax. With beautiful pools, sea and the cove plenty of options to swim. But also water sports offered every day, snorkelling trips or glass bottom boats but our best day was the 10-1600 catamaran trip amazing trip with snorkelling and bbq Lunch and rum. The spa offered free hamman which cleansed and great sports massage as well as pedicure. The food was great, varied from Mauritian to a la carte to Japanese, we also treated ourselves to lobster in the cove. The staff were warm, helpful but not intrusive nice balance all round. Very happy 10 days complete break. Oh and great live music in the evening. Read less

Wow what a honeymoon we had! From start to finish the service was exceptional, the food was perfect and sometimes breathtaking, the room was spotless and comfortable, the views were picturesque.

Wow what a honeymoon we had! From start to finish the service was exceptional, the food was perfect and sometimes breathtaking, the room was spotless and comfortable, the views were picturesque. We could not fault our 13night stay. The 4 restaurants, 3 pools and 2 bars were just perfect! Make sure to do the rum tasting, but please eat before you do! ( I didn’t 🤣) I had real holiday blues returning to the UK just before Christmas! There were certain staff that made our stay even more amazing; Sanjeeta- quickly learning what my favourite wine was and ensuring we had a bottle at (nearly) every meal. Her smile and warm personality made our day. Deepika- after getting to know us a bit we often shared jokes and he made us feel comfortable. Noor- this lad in training will be the best under the guidance of the seniors. Always polite and genuine. The lovely man that looked after me at the XO restaurant when it back was bad, I am so so sorry but forgot your name! You made me feel so much better, very caring and kind of you. Amadee- one of the best general managers I have ever met. Get him talking about his love animals and ask after his gorgeous dogs! He was very keen to hear about our feedback before we left and he has such a wonderful way with guests. Lastly our amazing Michael- this man deserves a promotion! He really made our stay amazing, he became a friend and we really appreciate everything he did from bring the drinks, polishing sunglasses and cucumber slices for our eyes to coming over to see us for no reason, just to say hello. Thank you all to the rest of the staff who were always smiling! I hope we get you see you all soon I miss this beautiful place terribly! Definitely a 5* resort! If you are going here for a holiday/honeymoon it will not disappoint! If you are planning a honeymoon/holiday YOU NEED TO GO HERE! Read less
