5 reasons to book yourself into a Mauritian luxury spa


If you’re looking to unwind, relax and pamper yourself in your downtime, then checking into a luxury resort in Mauritius may be exactly what you need to do. We’ve got the definitive guide to having a relaxing time at a Mauritian luxury spa.

Full of sandy white beaches, turquoise lagoons, lush forests, waterfalls, and rocky mountains, Mauritius is a dream destination for most holidaymakers. But besides being an ideal vacation spot, it offers tourists a plethora of rejuvenation and well-being treatments for the mind, body, and soul. Let’s take a closer look at what a typical luxury resort in Mauritius offers.


1 Start by doing a bit of research on the resort’s offerings. It is important to know what you are looking for in terms of price, amenities, spa treatments and special holiday packages on offer. Also, are you interested in detoxing, losing weight, yoga and meditation or are you just looking for some relaxing spa treatments while you’re there? Knowing what you want, will make it easier to choose a Mauritian luxury resort that will suit your needs.

2 Look for customised treatments. Once you have decided on a luxury resort in Mauritius, try and find treatments inspired by local Mauritian traditions, techniques, and ingredients, at their spa. If a relaxing experience for the whole body is what you’re after, then look for therapeutic massage packages. If you are looking for total rejuvenation, then make sure that the spa you choose offers the finest ingredients and therapists, besides the breath-taking surroundings so that you can enjoy ultimate relaxation.

3 If you’re clueless about treatments on offer, don’t be afraid to ask. If you have never had a spa treatment before, don’t be hesitant in asking questions before you enter the spa. Most luxury spas offer massages, facials, body treatments, manicures and pedicures. If you are stressed out, a massage will help you relax and get rid of muscle tension. So, make sure you ask about the treatments available. Get pampered at a Mauritian luxury resort before you head out to see the sights so that you can enjoy the island better.

4 Make sure to mention health problems or special needs. If you have any health problems or special needs such as dietary restrictions or allergies to certain foods, make sure that you mention it to the concierge or manager. Also, make sure that your luxury resort has a panel of doctors or health care providers on staff. Besides this, if you suffer from any medical conditions, pick a spa located close to a good medical facility.

5 Arrive well before time for your appointment. Most spas recommend arriving 30 to 45 minutes ahead of your appointment, as arriving late eats into the treatment time. Shower before your massage or facial to get rid of the chlorine in the whirlpool. Also, make sure that if you are getting a massage, you do not eat for at least an hour before the massage. Remember to drink plenty of water after you are done with your pampering session so that you reap the benefits of your treatments.
