Paradise Cove Boutique Hotel

An Idyllic couples only retreat

Located at the water's edge on a sheltered cove in northern Mauritius, the Paradise Cove Boutique Hotel and Spa proves to be an absolutely idyllic island retreat, with experiences tailor made just for couples. Romance and relaxation go hand in hand, with superb views of the ocean from spacious rooms, and a fresh contemporary feel throughout, including love nests right by the water to spend your days in. Indulge in a honeymoon treatment at the luxurious spa, or a candlelit dinner for two on the beach, or dine around at one of the four restaurants, and head to one of the two bars for a delightful evening of rum, wine and cocktails.

There is a dive centre in case you feel like exploring the ocean, but otherwise, you can just relax by one of the two pools. For that added luxury, stay in a Club Suite and be granted exclusive access to The Club Lounge with it's wonderful afternoon teas and special concierge and room service. The village of Cap Malheureux and the boutiques and night life of Grand Baie are just a short drive away too, so you can really experience the best of Mauritian holiday experiences.

Tropical Paradise, still some room for improvement

London, United Kingdom

First time visiting Mauritius and we stayed in Paradise Cove for 9 nights. We opted for half board, rather than all inclusive, which was a choice that worked out well for us. Depending on how much you eat during the day and what you like to drink will determine what is the best option for you. We don’t often eat lunch on holiday as we find two meals is enough, and only occasionally drink during the day. We always have a bottle of wine (sometimes two) + drinks/cocktails at dinner and for us half board worked out significantly cheaper and gave us a wider selection of wines in the evening. There are three restaurants on site - one main dining room that alternates between buffet and a la carte during the week, one sushi restaurant described as asian fusion (XO) and one modern tapas style restaurant (Peninsula). The latter two must be reserved in advance and have a fixed menu but well worth visits. Our favourite was XO; if you like sushi it is not to be missed. For us Paradise Cove left us with mixed feelings, best summarised as follows: Pros Arrivals and departures lounge - brilliant idea and provides a great first impression of the resort. The lounge offers a private, secure space for guests with bathroom and shower facilities when you arrive and leave and don’t have access to your room. Rooms - newly decorated, stylish interiors, spacious and all have a breathtaking view of The Cove. Very clean, house-keeping staff were very considerate and shower and beach towels were replaced daily. Swimming pools - 2 sunbathing infinity pools and 1 lap pool. Also worth noting that there is a private beach which is The Cove with sea access. During our stay there was never an issue finding a sun bed, in fact we enjoyed moving around depending on time of day and where the sun was. Spa - reasonably priced treatments, wide offering, private setting and nice surroundings. Make sure to book treatments in advance. Therapists were all friendly and provided quality treatments. Water sports - glass bottom boat, water ski-ing, stand up paddle board and more all included and provide great entertainment on beautiful waters. Guys at The Boathouse were all friendly and inviting, and happy to share tips on the activities. Staff - without a doubt, the staffs dedication to service is incredible. One standout member of staff for us was John. After one meeting, John remembered our names, drinks, room number and looked after us from that point. In addition, it is worth mentioning Tulsi who, along with John, seemed to always be keeping everything running extra smooth, Nitesh who took great pride in running Restaurant XO, and we can’t forget Anita who made us eggs every morning and Heemo serving up the best pancakes. Cons Bottled water - the amount of single use plastic used in this resort is completely unacceptable. Single use plastic water bottles are handed out to all guests, all day, including on the tables at dinner. Annoyed that we didn’t bring our reusable bottles from home, we resorted to retaining the bottles we received on the first day and left feeling embarrassed sneaking to the gym to refill them in the only water fountain in the resort. Another guest described a nearby island covered in empty plastic bottles so the impact of single use plastic on the environment is clearly an issue close to home in Mauritius. For a hotel that prides itself on its environment credentials, documented at the reception, this seems to be a glaring oversight. Communication - on arrival you are handed an information sheet that is not completely accurate. It states that the gym is open till 10.30pm (so does the hotel website) but in reality it closes at 8.30pm. The sheet details the evenings that XO and Peninsula are closed, yet they were open and we ate in the restaurants on those nights. Information on what the dining format or the entertainment is in the main Dining Room each night is also not easily shared, we had to go to reception and ask if it was a la carte or buffet. We can say from experience that it is a one week cycle on repeat so bare this in mind if staying for longer. Taxis - the hotel has pre-negotiated fixed prices with a local taxi. These rates do not seem to bare any relationship to distance travelled and seem to penalise short journeys over long journeys. To give an example, a return journey to Calodyne, less than 2 miles down the road, was 900 rupees compared to a 40 mile journey to the airport which was 2600 rupees. The hotel is making it too expensive to explore the local area in the evening which leaves a sour impression (ironically during the day you can use the free bikes and get to the next towns in 10 mins, unfortunately not safe to do so at night). All in all, we had a fantastic time in Mauritius. However, our stay at Paradise Cove was somewhat let down by a few small things that are easily fixed.
