Victoria Beachcomber Resort & Spa
This heavenly resort on the northwest of the island is close to the capital of Port Louis, where lively markets and fascinating museums are all just a short drive away. Nestled in tropical gardens overlooking an unspoilt sandy coastline, this 255-room resort is a quintessential picture of paradise. The additional draw of the adults-only ‘Victoria for 2’ section with its exclusive restaurant makes it the perfect place to step into newly married life.
Across the resort, there are plenty of spaces for private celebrations, including a VIP decking area for pre-wedding rehearsal dinners, five sumptuous restaurants serving both local and global cuisine and a secluded stretch of sand with a beach bar at the far end that creates a spectacular backdrop for sunset ceremonies.
Beyond the wedding weekend, guests might want to try their hand at the variety of activities available including cooking classes, tennis, mountain biking or scuba diving at the first PADI Green Star diving centre in Mauritius. After an action-packed day, the soothing spa is the best place to unwind, leaving each guest feeling lighter than a feather.
Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa
Known as the largest beachfront resort in the Indian Ocean, Trou aux Biches is a spacious 5-star retreat with an aura of a luxury boutique hotel. From the moment you enter its elegant reception and gaze out over the shallow pools and the cerulean ocean beyond, you become immersed in its irresistible charms.
The resort is set out in crescents of pool-facing villas, all interconnected by fragrant gardens that echo the poetry of the scenery. The pristine landscape and variety of colourful blooms attract a melody of birdsong, adding to the enchantment of your tropical getaway. At Trou aux Biches Beachcomber, romance is always in the air.
If the 2km stretch of white sandy beach isn’t enough to sway your destination wedding plans towards Mauritius, the resort’s impressive facilities will tempt you further. With a choice of six restaurants including Thai, Italian, seafood and Indian cuisine, a spectacular spa, a huge range of land and water sports and privileged access to two 18-hole golf courses, it’s a place where you can plan a beautiful wedding and stay on to enjoy a very memorable honeymoon.
Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa
Paradis Beachcomber captures the heart of every guest and it’s easy to see why. Often recalled as one of the premier resorts on the island, its coastal vantage is simply divine. Located at the tip of the Le Morne peninsula on the southwest corner of the island, this fairytale setting begins where the mountain meets the sea.
Within the resort, couples have the option of marrying on the shoreline, with the dramatic basaltic rock and horizon as a backdrop, or at the Mauritian restaurant, La Ravanne, where thatched canopies lie overhead and the authentic Creole cuisine will delight every guest. As the sun sets, there is nothing more romantic than watching the rays blaze over the waves with your loved ones.
Beyond the wedding facilities, there’s also a championship 18-hole golf course, an epic water sports centre, four restaurants and all the additional facilities and eateries at the neighbouring hotel, Dinarobin Beachcomber. The hotel accommodation is designed to celebrate the island’s tropical beauty and the larger villas even have the option of a personal chef and a stretch of private beach. With so much on offer, the pace of your stay is down to you.
Dinarobin Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa
Rubbing shoulders with Paradis Beachcomber, Dinarobin is its soulful sister hotel, completing the holistic ‘mind’ and ‘body’ experience that these two resorts offer in unison. Staying at either hotel guarantees access to the entire range of eight restaurants and facilities across both, with a swift shuttle buggy running every fifteen minutes to transport guests from one resort to the other.
Dinarobin presents a window into authentic luxury Mauritian hospitality, with crescents of private heritage-style villas surrounding turquoise swimming pools. All of the suites face the ocean and are backed by the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Le Morne Brabant mountain. It’s a jaw-dropping setting with an immensely peaceful atmosphere.
Weddings here are held on the beach beneath a thatched canopy or a floral arch with a picturesque sailing boat on the shoreline. Before the wedding, getting ready is a stress-free experience in the comfort of the bridal party’s villas, and during the ceremony, unique Beachcomber rituals can be incorporated. For instance, contrasting colours of sand can be poured into a shell and scattered into the ocean to represent two hearts becoming one.
Mauritius Weddings with Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels
Beachcomber weddings in Mauritius are always a seamless experience for international couples. Each hotel has a dedicated Wedding Coordinator who will stay in regular contact with you in the run-up to your big day. From sourcing and liaising with all of the local event suppliers to setting up the venue and overseeing the ceremony and reception on the day, they’ll be the helping hand you never knew you needed.
Unlike many hotels on the island, Beachcomber resorts host just one wedding per day so that there are no overlapping events on your chosen date. This ensures exclusivity and the undivided attention of the staff. As the sun begins to set in the afternoon, the ceremonies begin facing out over the Indian Ocean. At this later time, the temperatures start to cool and the golden glow over the water results in spectacular photos.
