Mauritius isn’t just about beaches and panoramic views; it is a truly diverse destination. Their population enjoys multiple languages, faiths, customs and cuisines that emerged from a cultural melting pot. Of course, the landscapes you will find here are undeniably beautiful: waterfalls, mountains, nature parks and gardens are part of the every-day life. The island has something to offer each type of traveller. Located on the sparkling north-western coastline, InterContinental Mauritius Resort Balaclava Fort is an excellent start from which to explore the island’s attractions. The Resort is positioned in lush gardens on the shores of Balaclava Bay and enjoys panoramic Indian Ocean views and glimpses of Port Louis. From here, you may enjoy a walking trip along the white sandy beach of Mont Choisy, or visit the small, picturesque fishing village on the northernmost tip of Mauritius.
Style of hotel
