Why Stay Here?
Maradiva Villas Resort and Spa reopened on 1st November 2023, following an extensive renovation, which beautifully transformed the entire resort. Under 1 hour’s drive from SSR International Airport, this intimate, all-villa resort in Wolmar is an exclusive beachfront hideaway and a haven of wellbeing nestled amongst 27 acres of verdant gardens, with an infinity pool overlooking Tamarin Bay and Le Morne mountain. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, Maradiva is a secluded world of lush landscapes, pristine beach, luxurious villas, outstanding culinary craft, world-class spa treatments and tailored care – designed to immerse guests in the wonders of Mauritius. Whether you are wanting a romantic getaway or simply seeking refuge from the monotony of routine, Maradiva is a slice of heaven that caters to every need, with Clefs d’Or concierge and private butlers available to provide unparalleled personalised services.
The resort comprises six different types of luxurious, comfortable villas cocooned within natural surrounds, each constructed in a way that is reminiscent of the country’s colonial heritage yet aglow with the trends of modernity. Maradiva offers guests majestic yet elegant living spaces across 64 one- and two-bedroom villas. Each villa looks out onto its own private heated pool and has been renovated to reflect the serenity of the natural world, constructed using wood, hammered bronzes and intricately woven textiles. Whether you choose the Luxury Pool Suite or the Presidential Suite, they are all carefully designed to provide a sanctuary-like space where guests can truly unwind.
Maradiva has four exceptional restaurants serving refined Mauritian, Mediterranean, fusion Indian and traditional Japanese cuisines, as well as local dishes and seafood exclusively curated using fresh produce from the ocean and kitchen garden. The Cilantro Indian Restaurant is elegant yet relaxed, where guests can delight in authentic Indian food and design. In The Cassine Gourmet Restaurant, with its rustic double-height wooden ceiling, a flavoursome blend of Mauritian and Mediterranean dishes are served. In contrast, the Haiku Japanese Restaurant takes on theatrical dining. Here, a private setting is also available in the Asian dining cove, where the Sashimi-based menu is given an exciting twist. A more laidback approach to dining is taken at the Beach House Grill, which is sheltered under the comforting canopy of an indigenous tree. If you fancy a cocktail against a scenic backdrop, the Latana Bar boasts the best sunset views on the island and offers an assortment of delicious drinks crafted by expert mixologists. In-villa dining can also be arranged. For even more choice, the hotel offers an exciting dine-around option at Sands Suites Resort and Spa’s three restaurants. The hotel’s Cellar displays an impressive range of 3,000 cigars from all over the world.
The Ayurvedic Spa is a gateway into a peaceful world of invigoration and self-love. Built upon ancient Indian and Asian philosophy, the Spa offers a holistic approach to wellness with specialised treatments, which include a consultation with the in-house Ayurvedic Doctor, who compiles a personalised therapy programme for each guest. The 1,100 sq.m space features six treatment rooms, a sauna, steam rooms, ice-plunge pool and a relaxation pool with Jacuzzi. Group classes and private yoga, including aerial yoga, and meditation sessions can be arranged. Boost your health at The Fitness Centre, which is open 24/7 and equipped with state-of-the-art free weights and cardio machinery. Alongside two tennis courts, cycling, TRX, golf, and aqua gym sessions are also on offer, and guests can enjoy access to water sports at the beach.
A myriad of enriching experiences and activities are available to guests during their stay. Maradiva’s Peter Pan Kids Club is a fun, interactive space for children aged 4-12, which offers a wide range of activities, such as water games, a ball-pit and a newly installed games room. Dip into some culture in the hotel’s own Art Gallery, featuring the work of emerging and established artists from around the globe. Contemporary art is also included with the interactive artist-in-residence programme, where guests are encouraged to channel their inner artist. The resort houses two exclusive boutiques – Essentials selling local treasures, sustainable clothing and exquisite accessories, while Luxury Boutique provides guests with a curated selection of attire designed by internationally respected brands.
Maradiva is dedicated to decreasing its carbon footprint and ecological impact. The team work tirelessly to guarantee that sustainable practices are woven into every aspect of the hotel’s operations to ensure the preservation of the environment around and beyond the resort. A water station has been implemented for glass bottle refills to reduce waste, and the use of biodegradable products and fresh produce in the villas, restaurants and spas has been made a priority. The hotel also provides sustainable key cards, reducing the use of paper in the villas. The hotel runs a Coral Reef Regeneration Programme focusing on nurturing the reefs surrounding the property. Maradiva has partnered with Green Globe to further its commitment to responsible tourism and promote a positive global influence. An electric BMW i7 functions as the hotel car.
