Mauritius enjoys a typically tropical climate with year-round heat, although the southeast trade winds help it never to feel too muggy. The summer months are from December to April, when it can nevertheless be extremely humid, and the winter, such as it is, runs from May to November, and is cooler and drier.
The best months to visit Mauritius are May to early December. January and February, the peak cyclone months, are best avoided by water-sports enthusiasts and divers. Cyclones rarely hit Mauritius (although Rodrigues has suffered far more regularly than the mainland) but cyclones way out at sea can bring days of squally rain.
Coastal temperatures range between 25°C and 33°C in summer and between 18°C and 24°C in winter. On the plateau it will be some 5°C cooler. The highlands are also the wettest part of the island – it can rain here at any time of year, and even when it’s not raining the area can be cloaked in low-lying cloud. When the winds are at their strongest in July and August it can be blustery on the east coast, though the breeze brings welcome relief in summer.
Apart from the Christmas-New Year peak, Mauritius doesn’t really have high and low seasons. The situation is more dependent on outside factors (such as the French school vacations, which cause a big increase in demand and prices in August).
Ideally located in the south east coast, the new Anantara Mauritius Resort is in a unspoiled area of the beautiful island of Mauritius close to the Blue Bay Marine Park which is great for snorkeling or diving.
The Anantara Mauritius Resort is part of an integrated coastal development located near Blue Bay Marine Park a protected marine park which is one of the best places in Mauritius for snorkeling and diving due to its protected coral reefs.
The resort has 164 guest rooms and suites as well as eight luxury pool villas with either two or four bedrooms.
The look and feel of the resort is designed to reflect the culture and heritage of Mauritius with inspiration from colonial architecture and tropical beach houses.
Dining choices at the resort range from traditional creole to fine dining. The Sea Fire Salt is a specialist grill and seafood restaurant with courtyard and beach dining, there is also a an all-day dining restaurant, private dining with a wine cellar, a healthy wellness-focused cafe and two bars.
Kids will love the kids club meaning parents get to relax or explore other activities such as diving or snorkeling or have some well-deserved time in the spa.
With the resort being located on the beach and next to the Blue Bay Marine Park there is plenty of water sports to do here in the crystal clear turquoise waters and white sandy beach.
The resort is just 15 minutes from the main Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolan International Airport.
