Trou Aux Biches, Mauritius

Forsake trudging through winter snows and instead dip your toes into the softest of white sands as the newly reopened Trou Aux Biches in northern Mauritius celebrates its first Christmas. The luxury tropical village-style resort features luxury suites and individual villas dotted amidst an expansive tropical park and spectacular lush gardens that sit along one of the best beaches on the island. Two kilometers of white sand and crystal-clear waters set the stage for blazing sunsets. There’s a choice of six fabulous restaurants to tempt taste buds offering a non-traditional Christmas dinner from authentic Thai at Blue Ginger and Indian at Mahiya to European gourmet cuisine at Il Corallo or a beach barbecue at Le Deck. The Bob Marlin Mini Club features its own restaurant for children aged three to 12 years, alongside a teen club for older children. Fun activities include glass-bottomed boat excursions, hand painting, sailing, small-line fishing, snorkelling, tennis and waterskiing, offered on an age-appropriate basis and, of course, expertly supervised by fully-qualified staff. The Mini Club is equipped with the latest entertainment, a stash of fun indoor games, an outdoor playground, and some extra special Christmas treats… Seven nights in a Family Suite on a half-board basis for two adults and two children under 12, including economy class flights and private hotel transfers, costs from £12,950.
