Finding a holiday to suit everyone can be a challenge, but you can enjoy a tailor-made family break with Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels


Building sandcastles, paddling in the sea, sitting down to dinner together (and ditching the screens in favour of conversation) – family holidays provide a much-needed chance to reconnect with loved ones. Settling on a resort that is sure to appeal to everyone, however, can be a job in itself, which is where Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels come in. They’ve thought of everything to make your much-awaited family getaway unforgettable, with a focus on leisure time for parents and plenty of activities and experiences for teens and children, plus lots of opportunities to spend precious time together.


With eight resorts in Mauritius, beachside bliss is guaranteed. Across the board, you can choose from an extensive range of suites, apartments and villas that have been designed with families in mind, featuring two separate bedrooms and bathrooms allowing much-needed breathing space.

And if you usually have trouble getting your children to leave their rooms, rest assured it’ll be one less thing to worry about while you’re away. With a fun line-up of outdoor activities available, such as treasure hunts, beach games and small-line fishing, you won’t see them for dust. Under the supervision of Beachcomber’s dedicated staff, you can wave them off on a journey of discovery during which they’ll learn about the local culture, wildlife and cuisine. For tots, there is a babysitting service available during the day and in the evening, so you can have peace of mind if you want to factor in some more ‘me’ time.


While they are taken care of, you may want to take advantage of your new-found freedom by playing a round of golf. Indeed, Beachcomber has four golf resorts – Dinarobin Beachcomber, Paradis Beachcomber, Trou Aux Biches Beachcomber and Canonnier Beachcomber – which offer great added values to golfers year-round.  Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa, locatedon the island’s south-western tip, where fairways and greens curl along the shoreline and the majestic Le Morne peninsula provides a scenic backdrop. The 18-hole Par 72 golf course is sure to appeal to players of all skill levels. If you crave more of a challenge, however, take note that guests staying at Beachcomber golf resorts also enjoy access to Mont Choisy Le Golf – the only 18-hole golf course in the north of Mauritius, located within close proximity to the seaside resorts of Grand Bay and Trou aux Biches.

If all of the above sounds like a great fit, but you’re already doing the mental arithmetic, you’ll be pleased to learn that, thanks to Beachcomber’s smart pricing policy, your family holiday could be a lot more affordable than you imagine. There are special kids’ prices for children up to 12 years old and, at most of Beachcomber’s Mauritian resorts, the age limit has been extended to 17. All you need to worry about is what you’re going to pack.
