Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa overlooks the brilliant blue waters of Tamarin Bay on the west coast of Mauritius. Situated on 27 acres of vibrantly landscaped beachfront property, this spa destination offers guests a chance to enjoy the distinctive natural setting of the island in luxury and privacy. The design and architecture of the hotel's facilities mirror the French Colonial, African, and Arabian hybridized influences that define Mauritius. Maradiva offers 65 water-view villas, each with its own private plunge pool lined with day beds. Distinctive privacy-preserving design shields villas from one another with trees and hibiscus flowers, an extra inducement for guests to use their open-air garden shower. Amenities include spacious terraces with private dining areas, plasma-screen televisions with surround-sound media system, and round-the-clock butler service. The hotel offers a broad selection of gourmet tastes (including vegetarian options) in its two gourmet restaurants. Coast2Coast serves Mediterranean, traditional Mauritian, and international dishes on an outdoor terrace or in a colonial-style dining area. The chef at Cilantro, the pan-Asian specialty restaurant, was trained at the legendary Nobu restaurant in New York City. In addition to an eclectic menu of Asian and Indian delicacies, this romantic restaurant offers a comprehensive list of wines from around the world and a casual lounge. The contemporary decor and mood lighting at Breakers, an oceanfront lounge bar, form the perfect atmosphere in which to enjoy specialty cocktails, tasty hors d'oeuvres, and fine cigars. The Maradiva Spa encompasses an additional swimming pool as well as a traditional hammam. The spa's treatments merge ancient Indian wellness heritage, royal ceremonies of rejuvenation, and mystical healing therapies. Detoxification and chakra balancing are emphasized in a suite of holistic signature services. In addition to enjoying a luxurious couples' suite at the spa, romantics can take in a beachfront sunset, participate in complimentary water sports, or share a romantic dinner by the water.
