Maritim Resort & Spa

A popular choice for luxury in Mauritius

Set on 62 acres of tropical grounds on the north-west coast at Turtle Bay Marine National Park, Maritim Resort & Spa is 20 minutes by road from Port Louis and Grand Baie, and offers some of the best experiences this side of the island. With such a short drive from the shopping and nightly hot spots of the town, back at the hotel you'll find reassuringly elegant and luxurious facilities and activities, with rooms offering calm and relaxing interiors with balconies or terraces as well as spacious bathrooms and other exclusive additions.

Take to the water with kayaking and diving, or play a couple of rounds at the professionally designed 9-hole golf course. For something altogether more relaxing, visit the hotel spa and enjoy a plethora of relaxing treatments and facilities. There is a choice of four restaurants plus a feet-in-the-sand beer garden pub and a fine dining like no where else on the island at the romantic Chateau Mon Desir Restaurant — a popular choice located inside a colonial-style mansion.

2nd time and still LOVE it!!

I last came here 12 years ago with my family when I was 9 years old and had the most incredible time doing activities organized by the hotel staff, as well as meeting lots of friends. Now, I’m 21 and still had such an incredible and relaxing time. The staff are exceptionally kind and help you in any ways that they can. I did lots of water sports, including horseback riding in the ocean, which was awesome, and something that I’ll never forget! The rooms are clean, neat and comfortable. The food is good. The ocean is warm and has less coral that other places I have been to in Mauritius. All in all, I love it there and I am ready for round 3 ASAP! :) Thanks, Maritim Hotel!

Fantastic holiday made special by the staff from Maritim.

Crewe, United Kingdom

My wife and have just returned from 13 wonderful days at the Maritim Resort. We flew from Manchester on a long haul flight. When we arrived to check in we were Met by Stephanie and Hena at the reception who checked us in quickly and made sure we were refreshed with water and a local drink. As we arrived early are room was not ready. We were given a key for the departure room that is located near the pool area. The room has lots of comfortable chairs and 3 shower rooms with a sink and toilet. The facilities are cleaned to a very high standard with fresh towels to use. We showered and changed into beech wear and started are all inclusive holiday. We first went to the pool bar were we were shown what we could have in the all inclusive package and what we could have if we wanted to pay. We found it to be very easy to understand. When the room was ready the luggage was taken to the room for us and we found the room cleaned to a high standard. The fridge was restocked daily. We only used what was in the all inclusive page and that was enough. We had wine,beer,coke water and milk. The beech bar was a very nice place to eat lunch and we did not need to book. We booked the beech bar for evenings as well. On other nights we ate at the buffet and found the food to be a nice selection of food from meat to fish with a nice selection of fresh salads and vegetables. As a special treat my wife and I book a helicopter trip from the resort. It was booked by Stephanie and Hena who throughout are holiday made us both feel very special and looked after us very well when we need information or any help.The helicopter collected us the resort and flew us around the island. Well worth doing. As the holiday went on we got to know a few off the staff and they remembered are names,drinks and room number and were all really friendly and pleased to see you and help with things if required. The hotel is getting refurbished next year and as some people have reviewed on here in some areas it does need it. The hotel is looking some areas like a four star with 5 star staff. I just hope that they don’t change to much as we felt very welcome and at home there. The beech and beech restaurant is definitely 5 star. There are plenty of things to do around the resort with activities on land and at sea. We enjoyed going out on the glass bottom boat and we got to see a turtle. I have over the years had lots of different holidays from hotels to cruises. But this holiday for some reason was one of the best and that’s down to the staff and it’s amazing location. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. Darren and Stacey. Room 262
