A serene spa hideaway spilling over onto a secluded beach, near Grand Baie at the northern tip of Mauritius – includes half board, a massage, and a suite option

Tucked away among a coconut grove, 20 Degrés Sud is a serene island hideaway spilling over onto the powder-white sands of a secluded beach. Set on the northern tip of Mauritius, close to Pointe aux Cannoniers, this adults-only boutique is a short hop from Grand Baie, an idyllic spot flaunting a pristine coastline contoured by sheltered coves and sugary beaches. Expect 26 colonial-style rooms and suites and a real home-from-home vibe – think library lounges lined with books and an antique-peppered bar.

Overlooking the crashing surf, the sea-to-table restaurant shines a spotlight on catch of the day and fresh seafood – highlights include a six-course lobster menu and fresh-from-the-ocean sushi (worth ordering in advance for). For a change of scene, you can charter vintage motorboat M/S Lady Lisbeth to dine in its elegant cabin out on the shimmering water.

There’s a small spa with just three treatment rooms (one for couples), a hammam and whirlpool bath, plus a menu of massages, body wraps and scrubs, and skin-smoothing facials. If you prioritise action over downtime, the hotel shuttle can take you to the region’s best snorkelling sites, or there’s the chance to sign up for waterskiing, paragliding and kitesurfing. It's no surprise 20 Degrés Sud has scooped a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
