The best places to get married in Mauritius
Mauritius is our most popular wedding destination. You can get married on some of the world’s most stunning beaches and create a memorable reception on the sand as the sun sets over the ocean. These hotels only feature one wedding per day, so you know you’ll get the attention to detail and service you deserve. Here are our favourite weddings in Mauritius.
The small and intimate wedding
We recommend the adults-only Astroea Beach for a very personal wedding. Don’t let the 3.5* rating fool you into thinking this isn’t a wedding-worthy hotel. It has just 16 rooms, so the team here knows your name and it’s like waking up in a private home on a spectacular beach. It’s quiet here, really relaxed and twinned with Preskil Beach Resort close by, meaning you can get ready in the spa at this larger resort before a ceremony at Astroea. You can dine on the beach and arrange a catamaran trip after the ceremony to watch the sunset.
The luxury wedding
For the ultimate luxury wedding, it has to be Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa. It’s so quiet here – all the villas have their own pool tucked away in their own private slice of paradise so it really suits small and intimate ceremonies. You can get married on the beach, on the jetty or in a luxury villa and the team here pull out all the stops to create beautifully romantic settings. There’s a great choice of post-wedding experiences including a Rolls Royce Phantom that will take you around some beautiful locations for your wedding photos, horse riding on the beach or a sunset cruise and the Diamond Wedding package includes an eight-course meal in your villa.
A wedding with all the family
Golf, a back massage and the kids’ clubs are included when you go all-inclusive at Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort, so everyone can really make a holiday of it here. There’s a real African influence at this hotel and drummers can welcome you down the aisle to the dedicated area on the beach or the gazebo in the garden. You can also have an African-themed wedding in Boma restaurant with your reception around a bonfire after.
Pick Infinity Blue restaurant if you want a beachside reception; or, if you have a big wedding party and are looking for a more traditional evening, choose Le Château de Bel Ombre, an elegant 19th-century mansion serving incredible fine dining cuisine.
The desert island wedding
The rustic yet chic style of Zilwa Attitude is perfect for a contemporary wedding setting. A beach wedding here is perfect for a simple but romantic celebration. However if you want a true island wedding then the Islander Ceremony is the option for you. A true Robinson Crusoe experience, you are swept over to the private island of Gran Zil where you can celebrate with up to 40 guests. Witness a bottle opening ceremony and dine on a decadent lobster feast as you take in this truly unique wedding experience.
Best for an after party
The bride’s entrance at Sugar Beach Resort & Spa is one to remember. You can walk down the grand staircase from the Manor House and towards the spectacular wide beach with its dazzling white sand. There’s a private area on the beach just for your wedding party or you can choose to have a ceremony in the gardens.
After the vows, small wedding parties can enjoy a night on the beach with a bonfire; or groups of over 10 can enjoy a barbecue at Citronellas restaurant. The after party really gets going at Tides on the beachfront, which is open until 2am and home to live music, a dancefloor and resident DJ on the decks.
The perfect beach wedding
Preskil Beach Resort has one of the most beautiful and dramatic lagoon locations in Mauritius. The resort is set on a private peninsula with beautiful sand beaches and gorgeous views out towards the nature reserve island of Ile aux Aigrettes, the Lion Mountain and Blue Bay Marine Park.
At Preskil Beach Resort you can say your vows on one of the most breathtaking beaches in Mauritius, or choose the elegantly decorated gazebo in the landscaped gardens. The resort is a great choice for large wedding parties and those with children. To make it extra special, book a barbecue reception party on the beach or a dreamy sunset catamaran trip complete with a photographer, to capture the beauty and romance of your big day. Our tip is to book a honeymoon lagoon room so you can wake up to sea views before enjoying a complimentary couple’s massage.
