Preskil Island Resort 

For beachside family adventures

Popular Preskil is a modern resort on a private peninsula and is a perfect choice for families and couples.

One of our most popular Mauritius resorts has gone through a huge transformation into a cool and contemporary ‘island’ retreat. Obviously retaining same incredible private-peninsula setting, the views out towards the nature reserve island of Ile aux Aigrettes, the Lion Mountain and Blue Bay Marine Park are the same. There’s an entrance which has been designed to make you feel as if you’ve arrived somewhere special, and there are charming yet chic thatched buildings dotted around the grounds that house a couple of the restaurants bars, the boutique and the spa.

Why we love Preskil Island Resort

  • Preskil may mean ‘almost an island’ in Creole, but the resort definitely has the secluded feel of a private island retreat

  • The excellent range of water sports includes windsurfing and water-skiing courses, and there’s a superb dive centre on site 

  • There’s a charming kids’ club and family-only zone complete with its own pool where both parents and children can have fun

  • It’s just 15 minutes from the airport, though there’s no aeroplane noise, so you’ll be on the beach before you know it

Staff regularly take part in activities such as waste collection and beach clean-ups in the local area. As part of a drive to reduce food waste, the resort works with FoodWise to donate any surplus to local families in need. During the redevelopment of Preskil, around 2,500 mangrove saplings were planted along the shoreline. The design features many natural (and recyclable) local materials such as palm thatch, ravenala wood and bamboo.

The Blue Bay Marine Park is one of the island’s most spectacular underwater areas. Diving* and snorkelling are great ways to see the rare coral and marine life beneath, and your family will love the glass bottom boat rides* around the protected reserve.
