1 One&Only Le Saint Géran
It’s easy to see why families return again and again to this iconic hotel in north-eastern Mauritius. Set on a magnificent stretch of white sand on a private peninsula, it is sheltered, meaning the lagoon is calm – perfect for young swimmers and learner waterskiers. The three swimming pools are another major bonus, as is the genuine and top-notch service.
