One of the original luxury hotels built in Mauritius, Le Touessrok remains one of the best. With two fantastic beaches and nooks and crannies with small pools dotted around the grounds, there are lots of secluded areas where you can linger. The Givenchy Spa is worth a visit, while the gardens are home to two huge tortoises. There are three great restaurants, including one on the beach. Watersports, apart from diving, are free for guests, but otherwise this is most definitely a fly-and-flop destination. If you're looking for true relaxation in the confines of a fabulous hotel, Mauritius is the place to go. WOW FACTOR: The hotel has its own 'desert island', a canoe-boat ride away, with a private beach and a restaurant called Crusoes. You can marry there, too.
