(Rated 5 out of 5 by Saga passengers)

Christmas leaving you all in a frazzle?

Make Mauritius your New Year resolution

An all-inclusive luxury beach-front hotel amid some of the Mauritius’ most spectacular scenery – what more could you want from a getaway holiday?

'Nothing', according to Saga Holidays’ passengers, who have fed back five stars out of five for this
16-night stay, agreeing that Mark Twain was right about Mauritius in 1896 – it is Heaven on Earth.

Saga’s laid-back tour of the lush Indian Ocean island offers accommodation at three stylish resorts beside pristine beaches lapped by turquoise water.

Guests can explore or stay put on their sunbeds and enjoy the free bar from 10am to midnight. Snorkelling and boating are options plus a Dolphin Discovery tour is popular – with a chance to see pods of spinner dolphins.

Drive past verdant-green sugar canes, pineapple plantations and sleepy villages on tours including Pamplemousses Gardens with dozens of varieties of palm trees, as well as medicinal plants, ponds and amazing Queen Victoria water lilies. Visit La Vallee de Ferney, a nature reserve of 200 hectares in the mountains, a shelter for more than 100 plant species and numerous animals.

Price from £2799 with selection of departures from Gatwick includes VIP door-to-door chauffeur service, return flights, airport taxes, accommodation, meals and drinks, porterage, tour manager, travel insurance and cancellation cover.
