Average time to visit
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).

As soon as you walk into the Oberoi you instantly feel relaxed. The resort is set amongst beautiful gardens, offering amazing service and incredible food, the smoked scallops and the melt in the middle chocolate pudding are an absolute must. Whilst enjoying some Belgian waffles for breakfast I was treated to the sight of a whale swimming off the shore, an unforgettable experience!
Follow the fire lit pathways and burning incense to the bar to enjoy a delicious cocktail and a spectacular sunset.

The Oberoi Mauritius is in such a pretty position, overlooking Turtle Bay, a natural marine park with its colourful coral reef, protected by the mountains. A luxurious hotel with outstanding service you are received with warmth and smiles aplenty. A great choice for families with children of all ages and also for couples and honeymooners with adult only areas, including a pool and a quiet beach area with only a few sun loungers so you can escape to your own little piece of paradise.
There plenty of activities here, should you want to leave your sun lounger and look out for the Touching Senses program which changes each week, which is a complimentary program where you can enjoy cooking a local dish, painting the beautiful scenery or a sculpture class to name a few.
Dining here is a real treat, be sure to book for the beach barbecue at On the Rocks, a weekly event and also The Gunpowder Room which is open Monday to Friday for an intimate dining experience for up to 8 couples.

Offering amazing service and wonderful cuisine, The Oberoi is an all round beautiful property. The stunning gardens surround the pavilions and villas and the pools overlook the sea, this is such a relaxing property and is the perfect spot for couples and honeymooners.
Emma Mark (Staff)
I loved the sense of space and privacy that you feel at the Oberoi and the slick service that I experienced in the resort. Having stayed at many Oberoi's in India my expectations were high but the property did not fail to impress. Great service, wonderful rooms and villas, fabulous food and a well run kids club for those who need it - all the elements needed for a relaxing, luxury stay in Mauritius.
Jack Mace (Staff)
I think it's the setting of the Oberoi which really caught my eye. As you enter you are confronted with an impressive water feature leading into a lake and this sets the scene of what you are to expect throughout the property. Walking through the grounds there's interesting features around every corner and the luxury pavilions are dotted throughout. These were for me some of the nicest lead in rooms on the island: smart, light and clean but full of character. If you are looking for that extra bit of privacy go with a villa as you'll have a walled garden and some have private pools! It's definitely one for those looking for a relaxing break; you'll feel instantly at peace in this tranquil Balinese setting.

The Oberoi is a beautifully tranquil resort and perfect for those seeking complete relaxation in beautiful surroundings and with impeccable service. Children are welcome however it is more suited to those looking to spend qood quality family time together or couples. The hotel has two beautiful swimming pools overlooking the beach and one is adult only. It has a very Asian feel and wonderful tropical gardens with beautiful flowers and trees planted throughout. It impossible to not switch off at The Oberoi and with complimentary Yoga and Tai Chi daily, you will have no excuse.
Lydia Achard (Staff)
The Oberoi is a secluded bit of heaven set in 20 acres overlooking Turtle Bay on the northeast coast of the island. With no hotel corridors in sight, each thatched pavilion and villa is completely stand alone and encased in tropical gardens created purely and simply for pleasure. Who needs a private swimming pool when each room comes with an enormous sunken bathtub filled with fragrant yellow and white frangipani flowers. There is a real mixture of cultural influences here and you really feel like you are being taken on a journey of discovery. Here Europe meets India, China, Africa and so on and nowhere is this more evident than in the spa and cuisine. The enormous infinity edged pool does not disappoint, surrounded by rocks and atmospheric crumbling columns and offers amazing views out across the 600m long beach. A dream come true for children and haven for parents. At night the place comes alive with paths lit only by flaming lanterns leading you to the restaurant. If you like a pre-dinner cocktail, nothing is more relaxing then listening to the resident guitarist playing acoustic versions of Frank Sinatra whilst sipping on a cucumber infused gin and tonic. If you get there early you can take pride position on the intricately carved Indonesian love swing, which I have been told is a beautiful spot to enjoy the spectacular sunsets.
