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).

A wonderful start to a week in Mauritius. The light and bright colonial feel of the hotel certainly welcomes you to the beach front paradise. The rooms here are extremely spacious and having the luxury of the direct beach access meant I could keep my room as my base for the day. You are, however, never far from all the hotel as to offer either so it carries a lovely intimate feel without compromising on activity or dining options. For me, the most special moment of the stay was experiencing the cuisine at Ginger. Some of the finest and fresh sushi I've ever eaten!
Hannah Fullagar (Staff)
Its fair to say that Heritage le Telfair completely surpassed all expectations. For a lower budget option it offers fantastic value for money. I stayed in one of the entry level rooms which was lovely and spacious (although I would recommend opting for the beachfront setting if you can); theyve all been beautifully decorated in a fresh modern style, in keeping with the style of the resort as a whole. Its a great example of laid back luxury, with just enough attention to detail that you feel immediately confident in the staff, but at enough of a distance that nothing feels too formal.
Heritage Le Telfair is more spread out than you would initially think, with the activity centre (home to kids and teens club) set a little further back from the main hub of the resort, and just along the coast, tucked into a little bay you can find C Beach, with plenty of water sports, dining options and a family friendly pool. Thats not to say the main pool isnt family friendly, but there was definitely a different atmosphere over at C Beach with kids jumping and splashing which makes sense given its located next to the play area too, and meant the main pool always felt a little more tranquil.
Heritage le Domain as a whole is also home to another hotel (where you can dine on request), a golf course, a chateau and a nature reserve, so if youre able to drag yourself away from your sunbed youll find plenty to keep you occupied.
