Situated in the heart of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is a tropical island of volcanic origin. Located approximately 1,200 miles (1,900 km) off the southeast coast of Africa and east of Madagascar, the island has 200 miles (320 km) of coastline and is bordered by broad lagoons, which have been created by one of the largest coral barrier reefs in the world.
Mauritius benefits from direct flights from most international destinations, year-round, mild sub tropical weather, English and French-speaking locals, and a variety of sights and excursions for all age groups.
Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita is a 136 pool villa retreat with views over an extensive lagoon and its own private 11 acre island. Situated within a protected sanctuary on the east coast of Mauritius, the Resort is set against a backdrop of the Bambou Mountain.
With its secluded beaches, a choice of regionally inspired treatments at the overwater spa and an Ernie Els designed golf course, this stylish open-air Resort is a haven from the demands of modern life, where every need is catered for by the genuine care and warmth of the Four Seasons Resort family.
