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 holidays, which cause a big increase in demand and prices in August).
Constance Prince Maurice is set in 60 hectares of unspoilt landscape, on an isolated east coast peninsula surrounded by white sandy beaches and a calm lagoon. Chic and luxurious, it's an ideal relaxing getaway, perfect for both couples and families.

This resort is a great choice, catering for both families and couples. The beautifully maintained beach and two swimming pools offer a lovely relaxed atmosphere to unwind on your holiday. The floating restaurant Barachois is a must, you might even catch a glimpse of the resident shark Johnny as you enjoy your delicious dinner. Wine lovers will be in seventh heaven with the extensive wine cellar.
Melissa Channe (Staff)
This property is romantic in setting but will still cater for children. The floating restaurant and bar is a great concept and offers something different to other hotels on the island. The rooms are traditional in style, very spacious and contain modern amenities such as an Apple Mac Mini for you to use in the room.
Kirsty Harper (Staff)
A wonderful choice for couples with a relaxing vibe as you enter the entrance, with the option to dine over water offering a unique romantic dining experience. The rooms are spacious and traditional in style and the option to stay in an overwater villa is a lovely addition to the property, please bear in mind these are over the lagoon and not ocean so have a view of the mangroves. They also have a kite surfing school on site for those keen to learn.
Claire Walker (Staff)
A mix of beach and lagoons Le Prince Maurice has some great room types, perfect for couples and families. The floating restaurant and bar are in an idyllic location offering great views across the lagoon and are a perfect walk from the main hotel and rooms. Lots of activities and watersports are available and be sure to visit the wine cellar offering wine tasting with a wonderful selection of wines!
Jack Mace (Staff)
Situated on the east coast of the island, Le Prince Maurice is unique hotel with the real wow factor throughout. Set amongst the mangroves and with pools and ponds all over the property you feel as you are surrounded by water. There's a fantastic beach with a great array of water sports for you to enjoy as well - all complimentary. Accommodation-wise I'd particularly recommend the overwater villas where you can sport marine life swimming beneath your balcony! One night you should definitely try the floating restaurant - epitomises the hotel and its ethos.
Victoria Douglas (Staff)
Le Prince Maurice has a real air of established exclusivity. The lobby on arrival is so welcoming with a tranquil atmosphere. The position of the hotel on the peninsula means that it feels very private and I really loved the overwater suites and the floating restaurant. Such a romantic hotel I'd definitely recommend this to honeymooners travelling to Mauritius! The food was also amazing and even had a skinny menu so that the healthier guest has a tasty choice of options.

As soon as you enter Le Prince Maurice you feel relaxed by the calming water features and pools spread across the hotel. This is a smaller luxurious resort where everything is taken care of. Spend your days being active playing golf, swimming, sailing or waterskiing, alternatively relax on the sunloungers on the beach and use the flag system if you would like service without having to move! For a room with a difference stay in one off the overwater stilted rooms with lovely views of the lake. Dining here is a treat, with a choice between three restaurants. For another wow factor head across the lake and wind your way through the mangroves to find a stunning floating bar and restaurant, which has fabulous sunset views.
Alice Moseley (Staff)
A hotel with true wow factor. What blew me away straight away was the accommodation on offer. All very spacious and for those wanting the unique experience of being over water, then that is an option here with stunning views. The hotel also has a wonderful floating restaurant which is a must but be sure to book a table to avoid disappointment. Every night there is live music playing in the bar giving it a wonderful atmosphere whilst enjoying dinner or a cocktail. Very impressive wine cellar. For those more active you can enjoy waterskiing free of charge or cool off in the lap pool just by the beach.
Sarah Tichacek (Staff)
Le Prince Maurice offers impeccably high standards throughout. The comfortable suites are tastefully furnished with both teak furnishings and flooring. The hotel is luxurious and chic. They even have a floating bar which complements the magical floating restaurant, Le Barachois. Le Prince Maurice offers one of the largest wine cellars in the Indian Ocean, with over 1000 different wines to try!

Le Prince Maurice is an all-suite resort located in a private lagoon on the east coast of the island in a sandy bay. The rooms are Balinese in style, dotted throughout tropical gardens shaded by coconut trees. Each individual thatched suite is equally as luxurious as the other with marble bathrooms and dark teak furniture. A collection of the suites are elevated on stilts overlooking the hotel's fish reserve but my favourite are a small collection of suites located right on the beach, and the beachfront villas with private pools offering fabulous views. A highlight to many stays at Le Prince Maurice is found in its culinary strengths and in particular Le Barachois, one of the choices available for dinner and accessed by a long, narrow boardwalk serving mouth-watering fresh seafood and Mauritian delicacies. The restaurant floats romantically on a tranquil lagoon and is an experience not to be missed. The main pool is the perfect place to unwind surrounded oversized sunloungers with plump cushions which provide hassle-free reading spots. The pool attendants, as if by magic, will make sure your glass is never empty so that you can settle in for an afternoon of snoozing, reading, nibbling and swimming. More active types can learn to kite surf here, go deep sea fishing or play a round of golf at sister hotel Belle Mare Plage. Afterwards reward yourself at the spa with one of their much loved tension-tackling treatments.
