The Oberoi, Mauritius, Africa



At a certain point, every tropical destination follows a certain formula. Beach, check. Palm trees, check. Sparkling ocean, check. Mauritius, on the other hand, is impossible to duplicate.

Mauritius is one of those rare, indescribable places so beautiful it shames all attempts at aesthetic achievement. The good people at The Oberoi, Mauritius nonetheless give it a try, and have done pretty good! Accommodations here are appropriately built for comfort and romance, without sacrificing the full range of accoutrements expected from the Oberoi brand.

Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort, St Lucia, Caribbean

It feels as though the sweetness of the sugar cane from this old St. Lucia port inspired every aspect of Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort, a subtle but stylish resort at the foot of the Pitons.

In rooms, and throughout a variety of villas, colonial pieces flirt with a modern approach, and large, cozy beds await you come sundown. Just a short stroll away, Sugar Beach glistens in the sunshine, demonstrating how it garnered its namesake. Offshore, kayaking, snorkeling, and sailing make for wonderful ways to lose an hour or five.

Between floating in the large, central pool, and drifting in and out of consciousness at the spa, you may feel a tad peckish The food? Think surf and turf in the most elegant way possible. At sunset, grab a drink at the Bayside Bar. Later, do your best Jack Sparrow impression at the Cane Bar - a rum-runner's paradise.
